NAME: Marina

AGE: 2017 minus 1985

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: video games (old school stuff, like Super Nintendo, PlayStation, PlayStation 2, GameCube, Nintendo DS, even some newer stuff like Nintendo 3DS), anything Metroid, old school Final Fantasy (like before FF7), survival horror games (early Resident Evil, Haunting Ground), I'm obsessed with purses (Coach, Vera Bradley), animals (omfg I LOVE DOGS!), books (though I have too many in my possession that I've yet to read), mathematics!! (I love all the calculi), science, anything that is the color pink, purple, or electric blue (my favorite), credit/finances (I've been in banking for 7 years), college (if I were rich, I would go back to school in a heartbeat for the rest of my life because I love learning!), languages (I'm a native speaker of Spanish and briefly tried my hand at learning Mandarin Chinese), music (I have played piano for many decades. I can read and write music. I've composed music. More than anything, I love listening to modern music that I like and playing it on the piano by ear!)
Honestly, you can head on over to my profile and view my interests if you'd like a better idea.

LOOKING FOR: People who are active and who have been on DW for a long while now. Preferably over the age of 21, though I'm not terribly picky as long as you're over the age of 18.

ANYTHING ELSE?: Not interested in drug use of any kind. Listen, I go to a lot of raves and music festivals often because I like having fun like anyone else. But I do it mostly sober, 'cause honestly? Fuck drugs. I hate what it does to people. If you do it, cool, but it's definitely not my cup of tea. I'm also not particularly interested in reading about religion or politics. Or rather, I'll read about it passively to learn more about it, but don't come to me looking for a debate or argument. Don't try to recruit me or convince me any which way. I'm not about that. If you need to know, before adding me- I'm an irreligious Deist who is against organized religion but still believes in a god or higher power (and karma) as well as anything backed by SCIENCE. I'm a disgruntled millennial who hated Trump but didn't like Hillary, because I was definitely Feeling the Bern, and now I'm disappointed that I can't buy a house because of avocado toast, and yes Global Warming is fucking real. So now that that's out of the way, you can make your own decision on whether or not we'll butt heads or get along. But to be honest, I rarely discuss any politics or religion in my journal. Usually I write about work, friends, or other personal life events. I pretty much treat my journal like a personal diary. But be forewarned: I curse. A LOT. Because I'm honest, blunt, and passionate. To quote, "I do not spew profanities. I enunciate them clearly, like a fucking lady."

ALSO KNOWN AS: Well, I was on LiveJournal from 2002 until recently, but I hate them and won't accept their new ToS. So that's that. RIP LJ. I joined DreamWidth back in 2010 and never looked back! I'm very happy here with my friends, and look forward to meeting new ones!

So, I joined DW about a month ago after being on LJ and various other websites since 2000 (!). I've been getting back into the habit of writing privately, but I'm starting to miss the social aspects of online journalling, so...here we go.

NAME: Simone

AGE: 29

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: Singing, playing piano and autoharp, krav maga, trying to become more like Brienne of Tarth, cross-stitching rude words and passive-aggressive slogans, progressive Judaism (I'm an atheist but it's complicated), going to concerts/gigs/operas, attempting to learn German, radical feminism, asexual visibility, online roleplay (Pokemon).

LOOKING FOR: Anyone who is interested in adding me based on this inadequate but possibly-too-lengthy summary post. I don't expect comments on every entry, tit-for-tat, or comments for the sake of commenting. I'd prefer to be added because you think we could get along. I'm not super active and not always the best reader/commenter in the world. I will try my best, and will usually comment if I have something to add, but if you'd prefer someone who will comment on every entry (and especially if you're very active) you may not want to add me.

NOT INTERESTED IN: Twitter feed dumps. Fanfic journals. Misogyny, anti-semitism, racism, etc. Since I'm aromantic and asexual and childfree, I probably won't be able to connect much with blogs that are mainly about crushes, dating, relationships, marriage, bringing up kids, etc. I don't mind, but it might make me less likely to comment.

I WRITE ABOUT: Day-to-day life, maybe some memes/quizzes/etc that people can steal (expect increasingly sarcastic and ridiculous answers, especially if I get bored halfway through). Probably nothing political or controversial until/unless I get comfortable, but I might sometimes post about current affairs (I live in England, for context) and musings about whatever's on my mind.

ANYTHING ELSE?: I'm on the autistic spectrum and have a history of depression and anxiety, but I don't tend to write about those things. I live alone, I have a full-time job that I love, and a cat whom I also love. Most of my hobbies revolve around music. I have a singing teacher, with whom I'm working towards exams, and I recently got into an opera company. I'm part of a Jewish prayer band, although we're not that active right now. I'm also trying to build up some experience as a solo performer.

Music: A mix of "classical" (well, more Romantic-era...ask me about my favourite composers...), opera, symphonic metal (Nightwish are my all-time favourite band), dark cabaret, industrial, movie/game soundtracks, musical theatre, swing (1920s - 50s), electro-swing...mostly big and epic stuff, but I also like a cheesy pop playlist on a dreary morning. There's not much I won't listen to.

Movies/TV: Marvel and DC movies, some horror and sci-fi, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, etc. Not hugely into TV but currently up to date with Outlander, American Horror Story, Supernatural, The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. I also enjoy Bobs Burgers.

Other stuff: Portal, Pokemon, FFVII, the Civilization game series, Welcome to Night Vale, Cards Against Humanity, surrealism, tattoos, vintage aesthetics.

Also known as: Some of my friends think I'm GLaDOS. I'm not confirming or denying.

ANYTHING ELSE?: I lost the account info for my old DW. I think it was AdorbzFangirl or something. But yeah. I figured it was better just to start over. Keep in mind too, that I won't be very active. I'm pretty much limited to my dad's computer (on occasion) to my iPad Pro. My laptop stopped functioning properly, and if Apple can't fix it... it may be a while before I can get another one. :|

Oh! I forgot to mention that I'm autistic. There's a good chance I won't reply to other people's journals. It puts a lot of pressure on me and my social skills. I'll do my best to post on yours, but I expect the same in return. :3
So yeah.

[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, and BTS. 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 and BTS! ;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. (._.);;
