Hi everyone! I switched to mostly posting via DW about a month ago, since it's easier to crosspost from here to LJ than vice versa. I try to be active on both.


NAME: Andrew

AGE: 34

ABOUT ME: Relatively new lawyer (just under 2 years) in Sacramento, California, running a part-time patent law practice while looking for a job closer to my aspiration of representing people with mental illnesses in civil rights litigation. Semi-professional violist, which is probably the one thing I'm most proud of because I'm self-taught on violin and viola. Former neuroscientist. Overall old-school geek. A bit of a news junkie. Living with depression, generalized anxiety disorder, and PTSD. Originally from Texas, grew up mostly in Dubai.

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: My favorite hobby is picking up new hobbies. Things that take up more time and brain space than others include music (classical violist and composer, jazz listener), soccer (played at college level, now just a fan and pickup player), progressive politics and policy, food and cooking, beer and wine, and coffee. I also tend to talk a lot about mental health, from both personal and societal standpoints.

LOOKING FOR: New and interesting people! People with similar interests. People with different interests. People who are works in progress. Mostly looking for people who talk about life; even though I love sci-fi and fantasy, I've never been heavily into fandoms or fanfic.

ANYTHING ELSE? I'm not the most consistent updater lately, mostly for mental health reasons, but I always post at least twice a week. I'm always going to post at least one update on life. And every Friday, I post an obscure classical piece I love, usually from an obscure composer.

NAME: Quinn. Or Felix. It depends on the day and how I'm feeling. I have two names, deal with it. Feel free to use whichever you like most, I like variety.

AGE: 24

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: Coding, zines, digital art, traditional art, talking and thinking about things a lot (so philosphy I guess?) autism (it's my special interest ;)), the internet and how it's shaped our culture, films, books, snail mail.

LOOKING FOR: People who write about their lives and thoughts and stuff. Not really into fandoms or fanfic, except maybe Rick and Morty and Hellraiser. Anyone who wants to trade zines, or looking for a penpal or someone to practice German with. People who were using the net during the Y2K sort of era, as I'm fascinated by the early internet. Anyone with a Neocities. Nerds, geeks, kinky peeps, other queer peeps, other poly peeps, other witchy peeps. People who enjoy examining themselves and the world around them. People who ask questions, people who get angry or sad and aren't afraid to express it. Anyone who would describe themselves as a work in progress.

ANYTHING ELSE?: I'm super autistic and mentally ill, so I write about that a lot. I post rather erratically, either three times a day or once a month, but I'm trying to be consistant.

Hi, I'm silver_chipmunk. I'm a 55 year old librarian from New York City, divorced, mother of one. I like reading fantasy, science fiction, and mysteries.

I have written some fanfiction and posted it on AO3 and fanfiction.net, but not recently. I am involved in Starsky and Hutch fandom for the most part.

I'm strongly liberal but don't frequently post about politics.

I'm not religious but I am a theist, I get most of my spirituality from the 12-step program I'm a member of, Al-anon, for friends and family of alcoholics.

I post every night without fail, so if you're looking for someone you can depend on to be on your reading page without fail, add me!

Hey everyone!  I just did the massive import shuffle from livejournal to dreamwidth, and so far so good.  I was a livejournal user all the way back to 2001, so it was a big move for me to just jump ship and come over here.

I'm looking for new friends on Dreamwidth.  Here's more about me:

Quick Bio:  I just turned 48, but feel and look younger I'm told.  I am a newly single Gay man who recently divorced a man I lived with for 11 years (3 of them we were married).  I'm still healing up from the divorce, but life is moving forward in a positive direction.  I live in Northfield, Minnesota with my dog, Junebug.  She's a terrier-shiba mix who will look like a puppy all her life, and even at 10 years old, there's no slowing her down.  I have owned my own business in some way, shape, or form since 1999.  For 10 years I was a massage therapist and loved the work.  Prior to that I worked in IT/Helpdesk contracts as a Macintosh support tech.  In 2009 I changed the focus of what I do to web design and consulting/coaching for solo business owners and other holistic practitioners.  I love what I do.  Sometimes I also take on a seasonal "day job" that's just fun and outside the box for extra money (need it because I'm no longer splitting expenses with a spouse).

My interests:  Science Fiction (I love going to local conventions), Singing, Karaoke, Tennis (I'm a fanatic!), Web Design, Workflow automation, Outdoor fun-stuff, being in nature, hiking, bicycling, permaculture, Energy Bodywork (I am a Reiki Master), herbalism (I've been antibiotic free since 1996), coffee shops, coffee, vegetarian cooking (I now eat fish, turkey, chicken occasionally but no red meat).

Politics:  I'm seriously all over the map with this, and I don't spew my beliefs right and left like most folks in this polarized paradigm we live in.  I'm a left-leaning libertarian mostly.  I support the 2nd amendment and enjoy pistol target shooting, but in almost all other areas I'm classified as a Liberal.  I'm all for a single-payer health system, and equal rights for all.

Religion:  I'm not a fundamentalist, but I identify as Christian.  I'm most interested in the Celtic approaches to Christianity and the melding of practices with the Druids and their love of nature.  I actually have ancestry going back to the Malcolm clan of Scotland in the 1700s when the clans still ruled.  Clan Malcolm folks believe they are descendants of Columcille, or Saint Columba - friend to the Druids, who brought Christianity to the Isle of Iona in the sixth century.  He's popularized for the saying, "Christ is my Druid." and I kindof like that.  However, my best friend is an athiest through and through, and we get along awesomely.  I have many pagan friends too.  My own views don't require me to convert anyone.  I just get to know people, love people, and that's all there is.

Lately I've been journaling a lot about my divorce.  It's been rough and I've been through hell, but I'm also moving in a positive direction, so those posts are starting to wane.  I write big long reflective pieces when I write, so to read my journal is to know my thoughts fairly well.

Add me if you like what you see. 

-Scott

NAME: Feladrone, or Sam

AGE: 24

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: Reading science-fi/fantasy, writing fanfic, learning German. This year I'm doing the GYWO challenge.

LOOKING FOR: Almost anyone! I just like reading about peoples lives, lol. But I'm especially interested in fanfic writers!

ANYTHING ELSE?: A lot of my posts are about things I'm reading and things I'm writing, but I never post my *actual* writing. I also sometimes post long-ass whiny rants about my life, but anything in the rant category goes under and cut. You don't have to read it if you don't want to.

I've been on LJ for years, but I want to start moving over to DW. I figured I should get some friends so I have a reason to come here!

add me!

ABOUT ME: Salem, Thirty something writer and fanartist who gets way to invested in fictional couples.
INTERESTS & HOBBIES: I like to write, and after a decade hiatus, i am just getting back into the swing of more in depth works.  I also game, so am very often doing two things at once.  I watch A LOT of TV, too many to list, so if you want to know what i watch, just ask.  Forever obsessed with Prison Break <3 <3
LOOKING FOR: Any like minded writers/fanartists/fangirls who would like to chat about fan stuff :D
ALSO KNOWN AS: Salem is my name, but i have really only used psueds for my works.  Most of the time you will find my art/writing credited to itrustyoutokillme.  Its my penname on FF.net, Ao3 and Wattpad as well as my skype name.  On Dreamwidth i am itwontalwaysbelikethis. Previously on LJ, i was artistic_writer (if anyone remembers me!) and so i kept this name on Dreamwidth.  I told you i loved PB ;)

mistressmandoli: (model)
[personal profile] mistressmandoli
NAME: Amanda (aka Mandy, or whatever else you want to call me)
AGE: 29 (damn, I feel old)

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: Lets see... Currently, my TV and computer are focused on the Stanley Cup playoffs, so there's that. I get out and walk 4.5 miles - at least - every day. I have a really good camera, but I don't really use it as much as I paid for it. I'm on this "on again, off again" relationship with WWE, which might be a good thing if I'm off again.

LOOKING FOR: I'm not looking for fancy. Just read through my interests. If you find that you have a lot of things in common, then let's talk. If not, you're probably in the wrong place. Sorry.

[personal profile] zesty_pinto
ABOUT ME:: I'm a thirty-something looking for an excuse to push myself to write more. I tend to use other platforms to take notes of current events, science work, and post inanities. I used to use LJ as a real platform to really hone and express my life in a way that I felt was more introspective and, in turn, also involved me reflecting my own interests off other people to see the aspects that people normally don't get to appreciate in real life. So I'm trying to bring this back into my life so I can find inspiration, maybe do some writing, and/or interact with people whom you can share other aspects of your life with without it feeling awkward.

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: I've been collecting hobbies of all sorts for the years, from MTG to photography (all sorts!) to aquascaping. These days I've been doing some part in a friend's RP podcast using the FATE core system (TBH, all I do is act like an idiot), gardening, reading up news/podcasts, food experiments, and DIYing things around the house. I'm hoping to get back into long exposure work as well once I feel comfortable enough to have the free time for that thing.

LOOKING FOR: Right now, I think as long as you're willing to post on a semi-regular basis, I'd appreciate it. Most of the people I knew haven't made use of their old journals, so I'm trying to meet whatever people are left just so I don't keep staring at five pages of RSS posts for Snopes. If you're into photography and actively shooting, then maybe you'll inspire me to make use of my gear for once or something. :P

ANYTHING ELSE?: I tend to archive dreams as well since I tend to use them for writing projects, usually the ones that try to follow some stream of thought or concept I didn't think about. My profile is also OLD (see icon for example), so chances are you will probably see remnants of 20 year old me as I try to clean up my twenty-something life as I repurpose this thing.
srukle: (daily-blah)
[personal profile] srukle
AGE: mid-20's

ABOUT ME: I am a recent graduate from college, majored in Literature studies. I'm going into my second year out of college and just beginning to work in a full-time job (as opposed to an internship). I write software and openly talk about philosophy and literature.

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: I read, write, and make software. I'm listening to a lot of podcasts lately but am looking at getting back into reading literature (rereading the things I sorta skimmed in undergraduate classes). I also play video games and am looking into getting back into Animal Crossing for Nintendo when it comes out for the Nintendo Switch.

The Mountain Goats anyone?

LOOKING FOR: Conversation. If you keep a regular journal, I'll read it and respect it as yours. I'll say supportive things when I feel like it. But if you keep a more philosophical journal, I may post critical thoughts.

ANYTHING ELSE?: Quakerism. Punk rock. Unix.

NAME: um, K or Cae is fine
AGE: 31 in July

ABOUT ME: I've lived in Japan for five years (mainly Tokyo). I plan to live here permanently and become a citizen when I can, especially after the shit that's going down (ex-American here). I live with my boyfriend of two years, though that has been tumultuous to say the least. Partly because I was recently diagnosed with unchecked bipolar disorder. I don't write about that at all, but since it affects my moods it's good to note.

I remade a DW because I feel like sometimes ranting to Twitter to my three closest friends just feels like preaching to the choir, but I can't find the motivation to actually post. Maybe if I add other people, and make a community here I'll have a reason to post. So currently my journal is empty but I hope to fill it soon.

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: Generally speaking, I focus on anything not based in real life (fantasy, sci-fi, horror). I watch a lot of TV, since it's basically the only English exposure I get anymore. I won't talk about the shows I watch on my journal since I do that on Twitter, but the stuff I write about there is currently iZombie, The Real O'Neals, Shadowhunters, Brooklyn 99, Lucifer, and whatever I'm forgetting. Even though I live in Japan I'm not interested in anime or vocaloid or otaku culture. I DO however pretty much exclusively play JRPGs. I also love animals and science and stupid memes (like Loss).

I also reaaalllyyy love music (electronicore, metalcore, dubstep, drum and bass, progressive, industrial, groove metal...) but finding people with the same interests is like finding a unicorn.

LOOKING FOR: Anyone who writes about their real experiences. I know DW is a haven for RP and fanfic but I can't get into it, I'm sorry.

ANYTHING ELSE?: I'm very extremely liberal (I've been matched with the green party in the last four elections) but I'm also very anti-Liberal™, if you catch my drift. I follow a lot of moderates and conservatives to get a broad viewpoint. If you're one of those people who think opposing views are the enemy, we probably won't get along.

Oh I'm also learning Japanese sign language (JSL) but I couldn't use ASL to save my life.

ALSO KNOWN AS: I've had a lot of journals over the years. I'm pretty sure I first made an LJ in 2001. I have a Tumblr and Instagram I don't post to, and a Twitter that is private so I'm not really big on putting my whole life out there.

Hello, I am Dooriya
Interested in: Photography, writing, birds, you
Would like to meet: Interesting strangers
Additional: Was on LJ for a long, long time. Befriended and was inspired by hundreds of people there, met dozens in real life. Then...it dried up in the tide of social media and re-blogging and other nonsense. But now I see the community behind real connections, art, effort, and interaction is growing again here. That's incredibly exciting.
Add me if: you like weird photos, and/or abstract poetry.

Here's me from back then; haven't changed much:
sheeploverain: (Jim & Spock)
[personal profile] sheeploverain

 Name: Sheepie / Marcy
Age: 35
Location: Connecticut
Gender: Female

Interests

- hanging w/friends and family (I’m very close to my family/friends. We hang out at least once a week),
- writing (I write original fiction and some poetry—tag on journal is ‘my writing’), 
- reading (YA fantasy/paranormal/supernatural, paranormal, fantasy, supernatural, historical fiction—my goodreads),
- biking (mostly on weekends when weather permits),
- arts & crafts (scrapbooks, handmade cards, pottery, picture collages),
- painting (I suck at it, but I like to do those ‘paint nights’ with friends),
- photography (I love taking photos of everything),
- television (fave shows right now: Taboo, Into the Badlands, Shadowhunters, Walking Dead, iZombie, Lucifer, Marvel Agents –profile for more),

- movies (all types of movies… comedy/action/period dramas are top choice),
- video games (obsessed with world of warcraft right now, but also play BF1, Battlerite, Overwatch, COD, SIMS),
- travel (I do not do as much of this as I would like, but trying to ‘up’ the trips I take—I love to hear about other people’s travel).
- I am a huge introvert so I love ‘introvert-like’ activities/interests.

I mostly post about: daily stuff (work, family, frustrations, etc), life, how I am handling (or not handling) the loss of my father, my writing (fiction/poetry/daily prompt drivel) photos if I took any that day/went somewhere, rants/ravings, occasional book reviews (if I really loved something I read), the once-in-a-while show ‘squee-ing’, occasional video game screenshots.

rarely never post about: politics. I rarely post memes, though once in a blue moon I’ll do one of those 30-day-meme things.

How often do you post?: Once a day (90% of the month). Sometimes 2-3 times a day if I feel ramble-y.  

How about commenting?: I do like interacting with my friends list, but I do not comment on every post. Sometimes I really just do not have anything intelligent enough say that will add to what you wrote (I suffer from brain-fart-syndrome sometimes).

Looking for?: People who DO write often (3-5x a week). I find that being on DW/LJ is kind of like a weight loss journey … having a community to share back and forth keeps me going with the writing. If there’s just silence on the other end (reading wise), I tend to get bored and fall off the map myself. I like to read people from all types of backgrounds so feel free to add me! You don’t have to comment here if you don’t feel like it, since I’m notified when folks add.

Some entries are locked, but there are a couple public ones. My profile is also pretty up to date (with a photo).

Also Known As: I was on dreamwidth from 2010-2013 as Sheepie (and other sheepie-like names). Hence my username. I love rain and I have a huge collection of stuffed sheep lol, soooo sheeploverain emerged. :P On LJ I was a version of sheepie in my far past (think 2000 – 2010). More recently, I was m_pav on there.
