Hello! ♡

Name: Kody
Age: 21, turning 22 next month!
Location: Hawaii, USA
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. (._.);;

Hello world

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.

It's a long 'un

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.

Any Gamers in the House?

Age
Mid-twenties

Location
Midwest, USA

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.

How about commenting? I always comment in return of those who comment on my posts

take a chance on meee? (insert ABBA playback :-))


NAME: Samy.
AGE: 38 going on 29. :-)
INTERESTS & HOBBIES: I read a lot (mostly SF and fantasy, the classics, fact books and fanfic. So much fanfic :-)), I like doing art, play the guitar (poorly), take photographs and sometimes I write some fanfic too. I travel both for my job and for fun, so I post about some of that as well. My top fandoms are: Star Trek (TOS/AOS), Marvel's Avengers, Hobbit/LotR, Lois McMaster Bujold's "Vorkosigan" series.

LOOKING FOR: I am looking for people interested in making friends/who share some of my interests. I'm a recent emigree from livejournal and it's a bit lonely on here right now, for me.

ANYTHING ELSE?: I've written a longer post about myself here.

HEY HEY HEY

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~

Hello All!

NAME: Sara
AGE: 27
COUNTRY: Pennsylvania, USA
INTERESTS & HOBBIES: I love to read, go swimming (it's summer right now), eat ice cream and s'mores, take pictures, oh and watch tv!
LOOKING FOR: Some new friends!
FANDOMS: My main fandom right now is the Marvel Universe and Riverdale (Bughead). I also still love Harry Potter and love to read good Marauders fic although it is hard to find. I used to be very into Gossip Girl and The Vampire Diaries but as they've ended the fandom around them has quieted. Oh and Doctor Who. I haven't watched it since Eleven, but Ten/Rose will forever make me cry.
FAVE MOVIES: Pride & Prejudice, The Avengers, Kick-Ass, Push
FAVE TV SHOWS: Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23, Arrow, The Good Place, Parks & Rec, Stranger Things, Agent Carter (GONE TOO SOON), Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Teen Wolf
FAVE BOOKS: The Circle, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games
OTHER THINGS TO KNOW: I love to travel (but have only been outside of the US twice). I love macarons and could live off of desserts & chocolate if needed. I've been sorted into Slytherin on Pottermore then into Gryffindor when I had to re-create my Pottermore account. I definitely think I have a good mix of both of the houses (I'm very resourceful, but if I can't find a light for a dark tunnel, you can bet I'm the first one going through). I love to write fic and make icons/wallpapers for my fandoms and I'm looking forward to doing these things again.

Hello people!


AGE GROUP / GENDER: Early 40s & F

COUNTRY: USA

LIKES: Creating. Daydreaming. Paddle boarding. Vegetables. Goats. Horses. Chickens. Music.

DISLIKES: Politics. Religion. Hate.

MY STORY: I'm an artist. A creator. A starry-eyed optimistic. I'm an introvert, a smart ass, and I say fuck a lot. (Don't worry, it offends me too) I live on a very old farm with my husband. I have muddy boots, painted fingernails, my own business, and a large collection of bungee cords. My writing style fluctuates greatly with my moods. I reserve the right to not make any sense at any given time as well as the right to make you think that six totally different people are writing in this journal. I even entertain myself in that aspect. Just go with it.

Sometimes I write well thought out entries. Sometimes I just type shit and hit post. It is what it is. LiveJournaler since 2003, imported here 2017.

I'M INSPIRED BY: Color. Nature. Compassion.

LIFE GOALS: Avoid growing up. Stop running with scissors. Get taxes done early. Don't go grocery shopping when hungry.

RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME: I can say the alphabet faster backwards than I can forwards. I can't whistle. I love bananas.

looking for friends far away from social media.

Name: Fallon Sousa
Age: 21
Country: USA
Subscription/Access Policy: Whatever goes/whatever you feel comfortable with, but please no under 18's.

 Interests:
The X-Files, cats, coffee, aliens, life.

I like to post about: Mulder and Scully and how they are the OTP, occasional personal stuff. I love my cats and if I can figure out how to add a picture, maybe I will. I drink a lot of coffee and I complain about that.

About Me/Other Info: If you Google my name, you will see I have written erotica not related to fandom, penned a movie script, and graduated from HS (lol) I'm queer in some way, still figuring out the specifics, and I'm a liberal. No trumpsters, sexists/racists/homophobes please. As long as you are a nice person I'll be nice back. :) I'm also mentally and chronically ill, so you might see stuff about that but not too much.

I'm a 33 year old Scottish woman, trying to get my journal groove back. I'm a mum of three boys from teen to newborn, and work in healthcare but (thankfully) I'm on maternity leave just now. I mainly write about daily life, the struggles and highlights of attempting to adult and parent and be healthy as a highly strung, stressed over-thinker who doesn't like herself most of the time.  

Wow, I sound fun.  Should I mention that there will be wine, gin and chocolate?

I was obsessed with my Livejournal back in the day - I started it back in 2003 and even though I've only dipped in and out of it in recent years, writing is still very much how I make sense of my life and my mind. That's why I'm trying to reignite that obsession I once had...though it's difficult with increasing grown up responsibilities and shrinking time of my own to put pen to paper fingers to keyboard.  But I know I need the chance to record snatches of life as it flies past, and an outlet for when my mental health takes a dive. 

I swear and I like to write no-holds-barred.  I'm very liberal and support choice - be that choice of who you love, choice over your reproductive options, or just the freedom to chose what you're going to watch on telly tonight. I'm doing my Masters in weight management so I try to live healthily through fitness (like dancing and weight training, albeit on a very beginner level) and healthy eating, but more often than not find myself alone amongst the crumbs at the bottom of a packet of biscuits. I'm book obsessed (mainly literary fiction and never fantasy, chick-lit, or much sci-fi), love a good tv series (Mr Robot, Stranger Things, The Handmaid's Tale, OITNB, Top of the Lake and Homeland have been recent highlights), and sometimes I even get out to see friends.  Some or none of this may come out in my writing.

Along with a lack of time, I guess part of why I've lost touch with my journal has been my shrinking friends list.  It's hard to make time to update when it feels increasingly like you're just shouting into a void. So I'd love it if anyone out there who is in a similar place in life or who is into similar things would like to take a punt on my journal.  I wont promise a very active journal but I am going to try, and I'm also going to try and be a good friend in return.

It's a good job I've been with my husband for ten years, because I'd suck at filling out a dating profile.  Feel free to swipe left (or is it right...? I'm not on Tinder).

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm extremely new to DW but I have been roleplaying for years. This is awkward because I really don't like to talk about myself. I much prefer to immerse myself in whatever I'm writing and keep things mostly IC unless we need to plot. Bandom/celeb RP is my jam and often played Travis McCoy on Livejournal, as well as William Beckett and Justin Bieber. Check out my journal for more info.

Top 5 Fandoms:
2006 Bandom RP Era Music (if that counts as a fandom and yikes that sounds old)
Anime
Harry Potter
True Blood
Tie between Pokemon and Final Fantasy X


I mostly post about: Until I get comfortable here, I may not post about much. I am so used to only using journals IC that I often forget that I can have one for myself.

I rarely post about: Eh I'm an open book once you get to know me OOC. I just prefer to keep posts IC.

My last three posts were about: RP, reconnecting with long lost writing partners, and storylines for my Travie McCoy muse.

How often do you post?: In my personal journal? As needed. If I join a RP community, probably weekly.

How about commenting?: I love commenting and interacting, for sure.

Hello! Like many people, I'm a longtime Livejournaler who's working on making the switch over to Dreamwidth. But I've had my journal there since 2001--that's pretty much my entire adult life! Change is hard! In order to help me shift my focus over here instead of over there, I'd like to see if I can establish a more active group of DW-friends. Let me tell you a little bit about myself and my journal.

About me:
My name is Katie, I'm 38, I'm queer, and I'm female. I'm a writer and writing tutor by profession (I write fiction and book reviews; I tutor high school students and beginning creative writers). I grew up in the Hudson Valley in New York State, and currently live in Philadelphia. I live in a very old house with my girlfriend of eighteen years and our two cats. I love to read (favorite writers include E.M. Forster, Marilynne Robinson, Virginia Woolf, Pat Barker, Ursula K. Le Guin, George Saunders, etc). I also like cooking, baking, canning, and food preservation of all kinds; hiking and bird watching; gardening; swimming; watching baseball.... I'm a rather typical introvert and lead a fairly quiet life. I drink entirely too much tea.

About my journal:
I began my LJ as a reading journal, and still often post informal book reviews and thoughts on whatever I happen to be reading at the moment. In addition to writing about books, I often post about food and the projects I undertake in the kitchen. Sometimes I use my journal to track goals. Sometimes I write about the things that are going on in my life. Rarely (very rarely) I share my writing. Sometimes I post about art, or the creative process, or a quotation that caught my attention. I tend to post about once or twice a week. There are often photos. I keep my journal friends-only, but if any of this sounds interesting to you I will be happy to add you so you can check it out. No harm done if it turns out to not be your style after all!

What I'm Looking For:
Like I said, I'm transitioning from using LJ as my main online home, and am looking for a more active friends list here on DW. I like genuine connections and interesting conversations. I'd love to meet people who share my interests, especially fellow book-nerds who want to geek out about literature with me. Outdoorsy folks, creative folks, thinkers, makers, teachers, learners.... I can't promise to be the world's greatest commenter and I don't expect you to be either, but I would like to talk to each other at least occasionally.

Say hello! Let's get to know each other!

New Dreamwidth Friends?

  Name: Bones
Age: 21 (almost 22)
Location: Boston, MA
Gender: Female
Languages: English and a little Spanish

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm fairly new here, but not new to fandom. I write fanfiction and I fandom-hop without rhyme or reason. I'm currently in a lot of small fandoms, and I love to add more, so feel free to try to get me obsessed with your favorite fandom. IRL, I'm a sleep scientist who doesn't sleep enough. I talk about my girlfriend a lot.

Top 5 Fandoms: 
I'm going to cheat, but in my defense, I am in so many fandoms...
Small video game fandoms (Oxenfree, Stardew Valley, and Primordia)
Boku No Hero Academia
The Goblin Emperor
Harry Potter (always... never hop away from this one)
Haikyuu!!


I mostly post about: Fanfiction, logic puzzles, fandom things. I'll probably start posting about my life at some point, but those won't be public

I rarely post about: politics, specifics about my work.

My last three posts were about: A logic puzzle and some fanfiction exchange/challenge stuff.

How often do you post?: Not much right now - I'm new here. But I imagine I'll be posting at least once every week, if not more.

How about commenting?: I'm good about commenting when I'm feeling social, but sometimes I don't have the energy. I like making friends and being friendly though, so I try.

Fannish Interests: I read fic, I write recs, I comment, I squee, and I fangirl. I plan to write more meta and reviews in the future. A long time ago I used to make icons.
OTPs and Ships: Oh god, please, don't force me to write them all down here. :D I'm a hopeless multishipper with countless of ships and OTP's. Let me direct you to a list. I give you the ships for the fandoms I've mentioned above. Get ready, long list ahead!

I absolutely love historical romance novels so everything by Elizabeth Hoyt and Lisa Kleypas is an autobuy for me. "The Green Mile" by Stephen King. Generally most of the books by Joy Fielding and Mary Higgins Clark.

Music: I love music and I listen to almost every genre. Classical, rock, metal, ambient, alternative, music of all eras (especially 80s/90s. Those funny disco songs always crack me up lol), blues, even country, German Schlager, eurodance. I know no shame when it comes to music.

Games: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (It's my second life.), Alien: Isolation, Anno 1404 & 1503, BioShock, Dragon Age: Origins, Far Cry, Left 4 Dead etc.

Comics/Anime/Misc: Dragonball Z, Gundam Wing, Bleach, Death Note, Ranma ½, Inu Yasha,
Cowboy Bebop, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Banana Fish, Bronze/Zetsuai, Angel Sanctuary, Skip Beat and a lot more.

Other Info: I was sorted into Slytherin. The hat let me decide between that and Hufflepuff, so I told him that I liked green better. :D I'm an ISFJ. I love nature and animals. Long walks in the nature make me feel all happy and content. I could watch grazing horses or cows forever. I have four cats and wish I had a dog again. I have a sweet tooth. I love bodyweight excercises. I like to laugh until I cry and my belly starts to hurt.

My journal is 90% fannish stuff. You've probably noticed that I'm a slash fan. I also have a couple of incestuous ships. Just saying in case you didn't know and react shocked. I don't hate on ships.

I'm looking for other like-minded (fannish) people with whom I can squee and, if the occasion arises, have insightful discussions with. LJ was my main residence since 2006. But with the rescent ToS fiasco I don't feel at home there anymore. So I've decided to move into my DW and make myself comfy here. All that is missing is you. So, let's be friends! :)

I love reaction gifs, so I wrap this up with one, just because.

I'm here!

NAME: Keelo or Hannah
AGE: 26
INTERESTS & HOBBIES: reading, dogs, witchy stuff, art, photography, business, food,
LOOKING FOR: I'm mostly looking for people that write about their everyday life. I am not into any fandoms though i dont mind people that are, i just don't want to read about supernatural or dr. who everyday on my friends page. I like raw and interesting people. If you're a grammar nazi don't even bother because my life is always going 100 mph and i dont have time for proper grammar in my journal. I'm usually updating between grooming dogs and checking in clients.

ANYTHING ELSE?: I used livejournal for years off and on. I made a new livejournal recently but had a hard time keeping up with it and making friends. This is my second attempt, i actually like how dreamwidth is set up much better than how livejournal is right now.

Well I'm a dog groomer. If you like doggos you should probably add me! I will post pictures of dogs and grooming related stuff. I started showing dogs at age 9ish. My first salon job was at age 16. So this has been my whole life. I have competed my dogs in confirmation, flyball, agility, and started with k9 freestyle but then just decided my dog had had enough. I have three cats and three dogs ( two corgis and a little mutt-butt).

My fiance ( i normally just call him my husband) is an alcoholic who is trying (slowly) to recover. i post about that a lot. Most people would say leave him but, excuse me, if my family left me the first time i messed up i would be worst off. So i try to help, be supportive and we take it one day at a time. We have a child who is 7 years old. Me and my husbands roles are switched, he is more of the care giver/homemaker and i am the provider and worker. He is also Asexual so i might talk about my adventures with that.

Other than dogs and family, i enjoy reading. I might give book reviews on occasion. Also always up for suggestions from other YA fans. I read to escape my own reality because i'm constantly crunching numbers and planning events for my business or managing my family. It is my one time i stop thinking about everything else. I can play the guitar but seriously have not picked it up in 4 years or so. I love music! folk, indie, bluegrass kinda stuff is my sweet spot but i do enjoy other types of music as well.


Anything else you want to know? Just ask!

wolfpack82

 NAME: Jamie

AGE: 35

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: penpaling(snail mail!), reading, crafting, playing computer games(not the online WoW type stuff.  Hubby is so into that), watching TV, blogging, swimming, spending time with my son and hubby.   I write stories, but they're not good. Just a hobby.  Used to write X-Files fanfic back in the day(who remembers geocities on yahoo?).

LOOKING FOR:
I am a stay at home momma, stuck here with no car.  I just want to meet new people, talk and chat to people that are not my son.  No one who lives around me is in my age bracket and once I married and quit my job to have a child, my "friends" disappeared. No "horney" blogs.  Fandoms are fine, just not over the top

ANYTHING ELSE?: I am disabled, so there are going to be stuff in my journal about that.  Don't worry, there aren't any "woe-is-me" in my journal.  Already wrote those out over a decade ago.  Can't change what happened, just have to keep moving forward, right? Essentially it's going to be a "whats on my mind" or "what happened today" or "this is so rad(whatever qualifies as rad)" type journal

ALSO KNOWN AS:  I have an LJ too.
