NAME: Erin
AGE: 33
  • Thrifting and antiquing (I love vintage junk and I'm a bit of a hoarder)
  • Vintage Pyrex and swung vases
  • Lego (my boyfriend and build Lego things and I attend the DC area Lego convention each year)
  • Cosplay (the renaissance fair, the local pirate festival, Halloween, and really any excuse to dress in costume)
  • Road trips (I can't resist an opportunity to go exploring)
  • Jewelry making (periodically I pull out my beads and make earrings...or chain mail if I'm in the mood)
  • Cats (I have 3)
  • Photography (I taking pictures of debatable quality, particularly of abandoned things and cemeteries, but also of my cats, vintage finds, and a variety of other random things. Yes, I do take selfies, too.)
LOOKING FOR: Friends. I honestly have a tough time making friends in "the real world" so I'm always looking for people to be friends with online. I made a lot of good friends on LJ over the years, and I'd like to give it a try here.

ANYTHING ELSE?: I was on LJ since 2004 and my journal there is basically an embarrassing chronicle of my 20s. I figured with all the weirdness going on, now would be a good time to start fresh here. Basically I write about my daily life, adventures, cats, and vintage finds with a smattering of pictures mixed in. I also write about the weirdness that is my family and my past, especially since my mom just died a couple of weeks ago and I wrote this huge crazy entry about her.

I also have bipolar disorder, though I keep things mostly chill with medication, and I work in a university library. Just an FYI in case it matters: I'm a heavy-set chick, and I tend to post cleavage-heavy photos because, well, renaissance fairs.

Perilous pyrex pirate and the scaredy cat... )

Name:  medleymisty ;)

Age: 36

Interests and hobbies: I love writing. I sometimes write original fiction. Mostly though I write Sims stories. Which they are still original fiction, really. Just they are illustrated with pics from the game and they sometimes use game elements as plot points. ;)

I like to research things like developmental theories and psychology and sociology and whatever I need for my stories. I am interested in politics, although I don't think I mean the same thing as people generally mean when they use that word, and I've been avoiding the news for a good few months now for some reason. I can't imagine why. ;)

I think...like I don't mean cheering for my team or caring about cable news when I say "politics". I mean, like...just caring a lot about how we treat each other and how we design the systems that we live by.

I like to take pictures of things I see while out and about. I love other people's photography too, and I've found myself following a lot of blogs on Tumblr that post pics of brutalist architecture and Americana stuff and just random pics of every day things, if that tells you anything about my tastes.

I LOVE cats. I live with a lot of cats, all adopted from rescue groups or found abandoned in our backyard and brought in to live with us.

I also play games other than Sims, like World of Warcraft. The spousal person and I are in a raiding guild that we like pretty well right now.

Looking for: I am looking for new friends and new readers. :) I had pretty bad anxiety on LJ because of some things in the Sims community, but I feel like DW is a fresh start and like I'll be able to actually interact without the anxiety getting in the way so much here.

Anything else? I am very open and I have a tendency to show my bloody beating heart to everyone in public posts, although I am trying to learn about the magic of filtering and locking. ;) I post about trauma and abuse and mental health issues sometimes, and I can get pretty passionate about injustice and things like that. But like I said, I am learning about the magic of filtering, and maybe if you're not into all my posts we could work something out with filters.

Also I imported my LJ, which has entries going all the way back to 2009, and please don't judge me too hard by the older stuff.  I am always growing and learning. :)

Also known as:  I use the name medleymisty everywhere on line. I saw someone else link their Tumblr, so here's my Sims Tumblr. :)  [tumblr.com profile] medleymisty  Also here's my WordPress: [wordpress.com profile] medleymisty
