[personal profile] tarobun

NAME: tarobun
AGE: Twenty-three (ee-ee-ee-ee, in the tune of Taylor Swift's "Twenty-two").
ABOUT ME: Software developer in the Silicon Valley, who is surprised and happy at her occupation but struggles with managing the normal day-to-day of adult life. I live with my mom and sister in a Chinatown basement and used to play Neopets a lot as a kid.
ADJECTIVES: dysfunctional, verbose, ruminative, reserved/introverted, stoic. Wow, wish I could think of some more positive ones!
INTERESTS & HOBBIES: Ice skating, reading sci-fi/fantasy, anime/manga (particularly josei manga), arts + crafts (crochet, watercolor paints), roller skating, visual novels, watching Let's Play videos, old jrpgs and indie games, Neopets dailies
I don't actually engage in most of my hobbies that often these days, aside from ice skating and possibly rollerskating. :( What can I say, I'm not such a motivated person... Lately, I've been watching some tv shows: GoT, Insecure, Bojack Horseman, and Rick and Morty.
LOOKING FOR: Random musings, journals whose authors have similar interests
WHAT I'LL JOURNAL ABOUT:
  • Long, ruminative posts which may exhibit anxiety or depression but hopefully some that just talk about what's been going on in my life.
  • References to coding, software engineering, and the Silicon Valley because it's a part of my life.
  • Some short, mundane updates about my current status.
  • Dating, whenever that happens.*
  • Maybe some posts discussing media or literature I've been consuming (books, anime, manga, tv shows, movies).
  • I might write about politics or culture if there's something I need to debrief about.**

POSTING FREQUENCY: Probably not that frequent -- I find it hard to manage my time and therefore find it hard to find time to write lengthy, unwieldy posts. But when they come, they might be long to make up for it! ;)
CONFESSION: I've never gotten a tattoo and don't have any piercings***, BUT I secretly want to get a cartilage piercing and double lobe piercing. You know, so I can connect a chain from my helix to my lobe**** :D and just put some studs in my lobe in the other ear.
I'd also love to get a tattoo, only I can't think of any image of enough significance or appeal to me that I'd want to put it on my body. :( And I don't want to just have a random tattoo for the sake of having a tattoo.
It's a confession because I have a very straight-laced appearance to-date, by the way.
OTHER: If you can't tell, I'm a fan of footnotes.

* I don't go on dates often.
** I'm a feminist and believe in social justice (natural consequence of attending a small liberal-artsy women's college).
*** The standard lobe piercings I got at 8 healed up after I left them alone when they got infected.
**** But I won't actually do this because I hear cartilage is a pain to pierce due to slow healing, and I hate fuss.

Me right now, at 23 - second post, example of rambling you can expect

Feel free to check out my interests to see if we're a good match.

ANYTHING ELSE?: This account is just my sewing account, nothing 'personal' per say. I am currently working on moving my cosplay stuff over to this dreamwidth account from my LiveJournal account. It is quite a slow process so please bare with me. Also most of my costumes are MERMAIDS! *ahem* I have a slight obsession. ;p

Subscription/Access Policy: Mostly friends-only, but I'd love to add anyone who shares similar interests!

Interests and hobbies: Right now, my main fandom is Hey! Say! JUMP/Johnny's Entertainment groups. I also like anime (Cardcaptor Sakura, Noragami, Sword Art Online, Owari no Seraph, Kuzu no Honkai, Kimi no na wa, Sukitte ii na yo, etc.) and video games (Persona 3 + 4 + 5, League of Legends, Overwatch, Animal Crossing, Harvest Moon, etc.) , but my interest in those are wavering a bit. ;w; I passively try to become more fluent in Japanese, so anything in the language has a chance of piquing my interest, haha. Other than those things though, I don't have too many prominent hobbies, as I'm a student and I have a retail job, so I don't have too much free time. :<

Looking for: Anyone with similar interests, mostly HSJ/JE groups! ;w; I used to be on LJ back in the day and had a blast connecting with others in the same fandoms, but I've been having a hard time finding friends on DW. (._.);;

NAME: Samantha
AGE: 49

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a scientist and a teacher but nothing like you imagine when you hear those two words. I'm the sort of walking contradiction who wears flouncy dresses with leather jackets and biker boots. Think of me as another cute blonde woman at your peril - my passions in life are physics, engineering and mechanics closely followed by tasty baked goods, especially cupcakes. My brother says my motto in life is "she's beauty, she's grace, she'll punch you in the face" and he experienced many of those punches when we were in the single digits!

Top 5 Fandoms: Doctor Who
Justice League
Star Trek
Star Wars
Anything with George Clooney in it
(I also love to watch bad sci-fi to mock it!)

I mostly post about: I've not really posted much but I'm expecting I'll post about science, books, dresses, rugby, shoes, science fiction and cupcakes. I will definitely talk about my family - mostly my husband and girlfriend.
amyvanhym: (lightheaded)
[personal profile] amyvanhym
ASL: 33/F/Canada

Interests: I write. I've been writing fanfic off-and-on for 20 years, though all of the fruits but the latest were long ago flushed down the Internet's vast series of tubes. Like so many, I'm sitting on a pile of original stories in the prewriting stage, to which I'm willing to devote the rest of my life, starting tomorrow. On the side I draw and vid a bit. I'm interested in politics defensively: I support freedom of expression and can be described as classically liberal. I don't meditate or read as much as I should, though I maintain a shrine and I collect books favoring weird and scary ideas: sci-fi, horror, philosophy, science, some fantasy. Poe, Lovecraft, Dick, Wells, Adams, Vonnegut, Wilde, Baum, more. I tentatively embrace psychedelics. While I can only play the piano a little and I only sing when I'm in the shower, music is the air my brain breathes. I love to dance: no partner, no rules. I like symphonic, progressive and neoclassical metal (in that order), also symphonies by themselves, and lots of other music. I've seen Nightwish in concert twice, met them once, and will be seeing them again next year. I enjoy browsing and curating at DeviantArt. I've got some more interests listed under my deviantID there.

Fandoms: In the past I was hugely into XFiles, Final Fantasy 8, Torchwood and Doctor Who. Now it's Stranger Things and Game of Thrones. I'm currently studying The Picture of Dorian Gray, as I'm working on something related to it. I've spent thousands of hours playing vidyagames whose fandoms I've never touched. I'm always in love with an evolving handful of actors, who are able to do beautifully in front of millions what I must do alone in the dark. The latest is Kit Harington, because I just found out we have the same favourite book: Nineteen Eighty Four (Orwell's prose is an essential nutrient). Also because of the pouty face. Is Jordan B. Peterson a fandom? I'm in that one too.

Why Dreamwidth: I grew up on angelfire and LJ. Currently I find most online places, especially social media places, to be impersonal, divisive, anti-intellectual and vulnerable to the tyrannies of moderators and majorities. I'm sick of likes, I'm sick of upvotes, I never really 'got' reblogs, and I'm sick of once-chronological feeds now being reordered by propagandistic, panopticonic algorithms. I'd rather have my discussions influenced by participants than by points awarded by uninvolved spectators and bias-confirming AI. It seems to me that online friendships have widely been replaced by online clans and mobs, and that self-interested conglomerates are deliberately feeding these divisions for financial gain. It sucks. It's alienating. It's suffocating. It makes me lonely.

Personal life: I live in a rented house, down the road from a university that I dropped out of a decade ago due to its corrupt and incompetent Humanities department and my own need to ogle gay guys while drunk and high. I have a beautiful long-haired muscly fiancee, two squishy chirpy cats, and a vegetable garden full of cucumbers and cherry tomatoes. I might be getting married in October, not that there's money for a wedding. I collect cheap makeup and temporary tattoos, I make peasant skirts and curtains out of bedsheets, I shop at Goodwill, I pay buskers. I get around on a bicycle and I move very heavy things around for health and hotness a few times a week. I'm estranged from my family of origin because my parents, especially my mother, were abusive toward me when I knew them. I may not be a team player but I don't weild torches, pitchforks or molotovs either. I manage intense emotion by articulating its causes as accurately as I can. I am undisciplined and unemployable. I have been misdiagnosed with several mental disorders by inept and greedy pill-pushers. I don't have anxiety, I am sometimes afraid because I'm affected by the human condition. I don't play diagnosis pokemon or identity pokemon. I wear the Auryn. My religion is fiction. My god is beauty. My moral compass is moved by suffering, compassion, truth and meaning.

What I'll journal about: I'll probably write more about my mental life than my personal life. Opinions, questions, vulnerabilities, complaints, recommendations, conundrums, philosophies, criticisms. The specifics are up in the air. And I'm sure there'll be more fanfic too.

What I'm looking for: Writers, individuals, creatives, truth tellers, smartypantses, down to earthers and jokers. If you're interested in what I'm interested in we're golden.

Name: Katie
Age: 36
Location: Central Coast California

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I work full time in a doctors office in medical records. I'm in the process of writing the second draft of a book. I love to hike and exercise as it helps with my depression. I love to travel, read, go to concerts and hang out with friends. I also help with the local film festival every year.

Top 5 Fandoms: LOST, Twin Peaks, Harry Potter

I mostly post about: Work, depression and trying to keep it balanced, my writing, hiking, my niece and nephew, travel, books, music, and throw in a touch of sarcasm.

I rarely post about: Politics (It's okay if you do. I probably will ignore that part of your entry.), When my depression hits, I try to talk about the positive and not the negative side of it.

My last three posts were about: My friend's page. I am just getting started into journaling again. I was big on Greatestjournal and Insane Journal. These days my IJ friends page never moves. I miss the connecting.

How often do you post? As often as I feel like writing. It could be 5 times a week more or less.

How about commenting? I will comment if I have something to say in the post.

Description
I'm a gamer by trade. Not really, just an IT peon who posts regular updates on my gaming habit. I'm also a grad student, so the updates will slow once the semester begins again.

Top Fandoms
Do games count? Warcraft 3, Jedia Knight Academy, Guild Wars, World of Warcraft, and Minecraft.

I mostly post about

Video games, reviews, suggestions, and random journaling about -- you guessed it -- games. I might start talking about board games later in the future. But it's all video games now.

I rarely post about

Politics, religion, family, etc.

My last three topics were about

Playing LOTRO, Ark, and Grow Up.

How often do you post?
I posted twice today.

How often do you comment?

Pretty empty for now. Would like to find friends to chat about games and music.

Final notes

This journal is no good at personal dialogues on journals, which I think most people want. If you think, "Huh, this guy seems nice to get to know." Send me a PM, and I will send you my regular journal name.

My last three posts were about: finishing writing my 60th novel, top 10 shuffle, comedy show I went to

[personal profile] mrs_patootie
name. Bloo, but Mrs. Patootie is fine. :) 
age. twenty-seven
residence. Georgia, USA

i post about.
My life, usually. I'm kind of a wreck and worry a lot about things that worrying just isn't going to fix. Writing about those kinds of things helps me really analyze my problems. I'm also really into subscription boxes (because I'm laaaaaame), so I'll post about those too. :) (Currently I'm only subscribed to Pusheen Box, Sanrio Small Gift Crate via Loot Crate, and Ivory Clasp.) I may also post about my marriage and my son, as well as all those other little tidbits that happen. I'm currently in the process of trying to quit my job, so I might ramble about how stressed I am about this. ...I'll also post a lot of pictures. 

Sometimes I go to marches or reveres protests, and I may write about those. This year I went to the Women's March on Washington, the Science March in Atlanta, and a local reverse protest for Planned Parenthood. 

i really like.
Cats! Real ones and cartoon ones, Hello Kitty and Pusheen being my favorite. I love fashion - particularly minimalist goth, 80s, and anything a little funky or odd! I'm really into makeup, but I'm such an amateur that it's painful. I collect salt and pepper shakers. :) I really like Asian dramas, especially the funny ones. I'm teaching myself how to be a better cook! I'm really into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially the tv shows. I like vampires because I'm still twelve, I guess. Buffy and Angel are my heroes. Paper crafts have my heart. ♥ (My profile has a nice list of my favorite shows and movies! :D) ...I'm also a bit of a gamer - primarily PC, but I bought a PS4 earlier this year and have only recently started using it. MMORPGs are liiiiife.

please add me.
If you're really into reading boring journal posts, then you should def add me. Add me if you also write about your day to day life, your personal life, or you write about any of the things we have in common. Add me if you're younger or older! Add me if you just want to make friends from different walks of life - or even friends from the same walk! Add me if you love cats! Add me if you're a parent - whether you're maternal or not! Add me if you like fashion - any type as long as you're not a jerk about it. :) Add me~
