My LJ has gone a bit odd and it's a bit quiet. I know a couple of you are finding the same thing, so I thought I might attempt to make a public post and a sort of friending frenzy (this may or may not work especially as I am posting this on a Monday morning). So yeah, you know the drill. If you want friends feel free to make a comment telling us all about yourself and have a look through to see if there is anyone you think you might like to be friends with.

Can I ask that you make a post on your LJ and link to this (if you are so inclined)

I'll start

My LJ  friends describe me as follows

[livejournal.com profile] resuscitation
A lovely person with a good sense of humour and great personality. Her journal is easy to read and mcmurphy79 is also a regular commenter. Definately someone to add if you get the chance.

Tina writes with unflinching honesty about all aspects of her life. She is open, non-judgmental and supportive; and someone you won't regret adding to your friends list!
stpdsxyflndrs:
mcmurphy79 is ardently kind and fervently passionate about everything lucky enough to be in the scope of her life. She is fun, raw, honest, and open; she is beautiful without realizing the true extent of her radiance. Her posts make me laugh, cry, think, and reflect, and her comments are always comforting and understanding. I feel quite honored to know her, and if you add her, you will too!
[livejournal.com profile] ellierachael
My friends list wouldn't be the same without mcmurphy79. Funny, genuine and honest, she's someone I regard as a true friend

I'll play :o)

Middle aged (55) married female historian (also a qualified special needs teacher but no longer teaching) of working class origin and complicated ancestry. I travel a lot and am a photography nut, so post a lot of pics. Most people think I'm sane(-ish)

I keep my blog f-locked due to certain things in my personal history that some strange people might not approve of, but if you're broad minded and free of the usual prejudices, -phobias and -isms, you might just like what you see if you ask to come on board :o)

I'm Hannah, 27, living in rural Scotland. Happily unmarried (but not single) attachment parenting mama to one little boy. Hippyish liberal type, vegetarian, into reading, crafts, writing, drawing. Just trying to live a simple, creative life & question conventions instead of mindlessly following them.

Oh, and even if you don't want to be LJ friends with me, you might like my book blog: http://whathannahread.wordpress.com/

I'll give it a go, my flist is quite quiet these days too!

I'm Claire, 28 years old, living in the north of England. I'm an analytical chemist (read crazy chemist) and work providing chemistry support to power stations for one of the big 6 UK energy suppliers. I absolutely love it and the small department I work in means it feels less like selling out. There's a lady I work with, who I get on really well with, but she tries to shut me out of the work, so I'm dealing with that and posting about it at the moment.

I have a boyfriend, Rob, who does marketing for the same energy supplier. We're currently long distance, he's about 100 miles away. He's the woman of our relationship bless him! He's lovely and the sweetest man I've ever dated, but I'm terrible with relationships, not very romantic, and overanalyse everything (via my journal)!

Sadly I also have a massive crush on my bad-boy boss (I should write that it's never going to happen, nor would I actually want it to), and I write about this quite a lot. Trying to get my head around ignoring my stupid brain and doing what's best for me and also for Rob.

Other things I like are: salsa dancing, going to the cinema, I've just bought a new flat and I'm going to be working on making that my own, girly gossiping, drinking/going out on a Friday (I promise all my entires don't start with "oooo I was soooo wasted"), I'm a runner and am currently training for a 10k, I do talk about work a bit and sometimes I get to travel round the country to different power stations.

I'm pretty practical but think my journal probably gets my hormonal woman side, so I probably would fit with either side. I always read my flist and comment quite a lot (I usually have something to say!). I think my journal has been a bit difficult to comment on at the moment, especially if you don't know me, but I appreciate people reading, and like reading people's journals in return. I don't mind people telling me I'm an idiot so would welcome brutally honest friends!

Hello, I'm 28 year old Northern lass living in London. I'm a freelance web designer and I love bears, photography, and all things Russian. My journal isn't as interesting or exciting as it used to be, thanks to phobia issues, which means I complain about that and the NHS pretty often. Just a warning! Aside from that, I like to share photographs and.. that's about it. Oh, and I read a lot. I talk about books quite often, too.

Hello! I'm a nearly 33 year old Swedish girl who lives in a suburb to Stockholm, Sweden. My name is Katarina, but I usually go by Kattis. I live with my boyfriend since 10 years and we are now about to start our own family. I work with kids at a kindergarden. I'm pretty introverted and I'm sure plenty of people think I'm shy, while in reality I'm not.. I just don't care to talk unless I have something to say.
Some of my interests are literature (fantasy, chick-litt, every day modern stories.. I'm an avid reader and read a little bit of everything), photography, movies (I watch a huge variety of genres and like anything from romantic movies to horror movies), cooking, traveling, shopping, taking daytrips, history, music (mainly indie and singer/songwriters), going to gigs (even if I don't do it as often), writing letters, watching tv (I follow a lot of shows, or try to.. Greys anatomy, Gossip girl, Vampire diaries, Desperate housewives, House, True blood, Supernatural are amongst the ones I watch these days and an old favorite of mine is Buffy the vampire slayer.) I collect Blythe dolls and post about them once in a while in my journal, but more than anything my journal is like a diary and a way to keep up with penpals and online friends about my daily life.
I'm looking for people who update somewhat regularly and who is genuinely interested in getting to know me & will comment to entries once and a while. It'd be nice if we have some things in common, but you don't have to like everything I do. I keep my journal friends locked so do give me a shout if you feel like we'd get along and I'll add you back.

Hello, I'm Steph, I live in Yorkshire with my partner and cat in a house we bought about 6 months ago.

I've been on LJ for about 11 years now and I post about the general things that happen in my life, and I post a lot of pics.

I'm self employed mainly but atm I'm doing some extra part time work for a local company that makes sushi. I love food, and I'm just starting to learn about baking cakes.

I'll add you and hope you add me back?

Oh I am glad that you have made this post as my flist isn't as it used to be :).

Well, my name is Sarah and I turned 36 today. Being closer to 40 than 30 isn't a particularly nice feeling but I am sure that I will get used to it.

I live in the north-west (near Manchester) and I will be moving in with my fella in the next couple of weeks. Well, as soon as I have packed all of my stuff up. We have three cats and we fuss over our furbabies far too much. As cats go, ours are fabulous in every way possible.

I have been a primary school teacher for the past twelve years. I love my job but it can annoy me at times. I try not to whinge about it too much.

I love to cross stitch and have just joined a crochet club. We are all the same age and meet in local pub and spend a huge chunk of the time talking about men. We are trying to increase our numbers and are planning several yarnbombing projects in our local town to make it more prettier. If the Knitting Nora's can do it and avoid getting arrested, then so can we!

I also like going to the theatre and gigs. I love bands such as The Horrors, The Hives and the wonderus X Ray Spex.

My other hobbies include mystery shopping and market research. Now, I know that this isn't exactly a rock n roll hobby and does cause the odd eyebrow to rise when I mention it but I love free stuff and shopping vouchers. OMG shopping for free. Who can complain about that?!

Thanks for instigating this! I was just thinking of hosting a friending meme, too! (Heh, I think at this rate, all that remains of LJ will be friends with one another - and that's a good thing!)

So, I'm Melissa, 29. A Southern California/L.A. girl through and through. I'm a publicist for various restaurants and also am a music journalist. I currently write for PopMatters, PhantEye and BandCrab.

Music is my life, so if you're into Smashing Pumpkins, Weezer, Green Day, the Beatles, Belle & Sebastian, riot grrl bands, Fiona Apple and similar artists, we're going to get along just fine!

I also dig: Parks & Recreation, quirky indie films, thrift store shopping, being sober, going to the beach, traveling, collecting postcards and playing board games.

Hi there! :) Got here from [livejournal.com profile] promiseoftin's journal.

My name's Natasha, I'm 21 from Argentina, currently living with my dad and a cat that it's not ours but we still feed him and take care of him, was studying Visual Arts last year but dropped out because of personal issues and I was supposed to start with Software Development this year but I still haven't because of reasons beyond my powers.

I like a variety of tv shows, that include BBC Sherlock, Supernatural, Doctor Who, Misfits, Community, and others~, music (obsessed with Florence and Metric at the moment), cartoons, books (although I'm a reaaally lazy reader) photography and films, especially those with Christian Bale or Michael Fassbender in them.

I also rant a lot and have a terrible grammar so I apologize in advance for that.

My name is Kamila, I'm almost 28y.o. and I live in Warsaw, Poland where I work in one of the rail companies, dealing with trains' schedules (and I love it!). My main interests include travelling (some people say I'm obsessed with it as I'm always on the way or planning where to go next, I've just came back from Armenia), photography, penpalling, reading, watching movies + TV shows, music, wasting my time online, langauges, seeing my friends and so on and so on.

Dave - 35 year old male. I see myself as very intelligent and good looking. I may be deluded.

I have been on LJ for nearly 11 years now and my journal has gone through various phases: - a way to meet people, a place to write stories, an online diary, a place to debate, a detailed description of what sandwich I ate for lunch(in many way the most interesting phase). Mostly now it seems to be a weekly-ish update with a few photos thrown in for good measure. It could all change in future I guess.

I hit "post" and then realised that was a shit intro and says virtually nothing about me. I was not aiming for enigmatic and mysterious. I don't like talking about 50 Shades of Grey. I drink my coffee black. Patti Smith is my jam. Er. I am the assistant editor of a music mag/blog. Last night my boyfriend and I couldn't sleep because we're pretty sure we have a mouse in the bedsit we live in and we could here him niffing about the bin. I have named him Fairway Frank. (If you don't get that reference, I don't want to know.)

Hello! I'm here via a prod from [livejournal.com profile] idiosyncrasique.

I'm Laura, known as Ripley, 29 and living in Cambridge with partner Tom (Inq) of seven+ years and my two cats, Gambit and Glyph. I'm not the most frequent updater but I read my flist often and I think I'm OK about commenting :)

Other stuff about me: my LJ is mainly about stuff that sticks out about my day-to-day life. It isn't always riveting but it's mine. I'm a grad student, introvert and avid reader, into papercrafting, mail art and swapping, crochet, knitting, roleplaying games and LARP, video games, Buddhism, and reading whatever I can find all over the internet. I have slightly off taste in music - favourites include James, Vangelis, Profondo Rosso, Savage, Allister, Idlewild, Green Day, A Fine Frenzy, Roxette, The Beautiful South and The Housemartens, and all sorts of other artists of varying genres - I recently got into Vocaloid music and Florence + the Machine.

I have ME and some mental health/spectrum issues going on, so I'm not always the most shiny happy person out there, but I think and hope that under a slightly crotchety exterior I'm nice enough.

I'm looking for new friends that don't mind getting to know a massive geek who's interested in almost anything people have to say. Interests in common are a bonus but not necessary and I look forward to meeting you :)

Heya, I'm Ingrid, 25 and about to make the leap from Oxford to Newcastle to start a Masters in Museum/Art Gallery Studies having hit a bit of a brick wall with trying to find interesting work. My current interests are reading, zines, letter writing, cycling, trying to do Couch to 5k, music and music festivals. I'm vegan, so I talk about that sometimes, post photos now and then, I'm in a long distance relationship with a guy from Manchester so frequently travel about, and in general I talk about feelings whether they be good or bad. :)

Hi! I am Marta, 30, italian. I am on LJ since 2007, but haven't updated as much in the past years. I am now back for good to keep a regular account of my days. I am a part-time office worker. I am a part-time university student. I am working through my third uni degree, this time in kingergarten education. I aim to get a master in special needs education also. I already am a social worker, but it seems to be an unlucky profession in my country, so I am just trying my luck with education.
I am in a long-term relationship with my high school sweetheart and we'll hopefully get married next year. Don't you worry, if you add me you won't be bothered with endless wedding organizing lists and ramblings: I am not one for partying and I am not looking forward to being at the centre of everyone's attention. Still I am looking forward to being my boyfriend's life-companion!
I am a penpaller, even if I am always late with replies, I am a bookworm.
My journal is mostly about school, job, family, my boyfriend, friendships, books and trips (I love to travel!).
If you like you can add me. Thanks for reading. :)

Hello!

My name's Louise, or Moominlou as I'm often referred to, and I'm fast approaching 30. I have the various trappings of grown upness, like a mortgage, but I still get childishly excited about things like Hallowe'en and Christmas. I also have nostalgia for the good old days of cartoons. Thundercats, ho!

I live in Birmingham (but originally from Nottingham) with my husband Adam and kitties, Aragorn and Hardy.

I work for a law firm as an Intelligence Researcher but my heart is in wedding planning. I loved planning our wedding and now I keep a wedding blog until I can get the course fees together to do a wedding planner diploma.

Passions include films - favourites include The Crow, The Last of the Mohicans, The Lord of the Rings and The Fountain. I also adore my superheroes and I'm a big fan of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, Avengers Assemble and Kick Ass.

I also adore fantasy and gothic art and have a rapidly growing collection of art books.

Music-wise, I consider my taste to be quite eclectic and can be found listening to music ranging from Beethoven, Kate Rusby, Epica, Patsy Cline, Emilie Autumn, VAST, Bon Jovi, Paloma Faith....

I'm a bit of an El Jay dinosaur and have kept this journal since the angst ridden days of 2001. I update quite regularly and enjoy interacting with people so I try to comment on people's journals as often as I can and if I have anything relevant to say!

Hi! I'm a 29 year old female from Iceland, although I'm currently living in Denmark where I'm studying anthropology. So for the next few years I'll be spending my winters in Denmark studying and summers in Iceland working. Work being office work for the Icelandic Equestrian Association.

I love to travel, I can't go a day without listening to music and one of my favourite things to do is take long walks and take pictures of cool things I come across. Also, superheroes are rad.

I've been quiet on LJ this summer due to a broken wrist (only typing with my left hand took aaaages) but I'm getting better and I'm ready to delve back into the wonderful world of LJ.

Other interests can be found on my profile as well.

Hello! I'm Silvia, 27 (not for long), Italian that now calls London her home. A short summary of my recent life can be as follows: frustrated with my own country, I used a MA in Comparative Literature as an excuse to leave my fair country never to return, and land to a place I've loved with a passion since I was 15. I somehow ended up working in marketing and fundraising, in various arts organisations and now charities (I'm actually about to start a new job). Taken by academia nostalgia, I'm also currently considering a certificate in psychology (don't ask).

Things I like include: theatre, literature, books, costume drama, London, rock music, eating out, yoga, tea. You may find all of this in my journal, mainly diluted in everyday ramblings on everything that crosses my life and my mind.

I've been on LJ for almost 7 years (JESUS, where has my life gone?!) and I cannot begin to tell how much I love this place. I try to update every day or almost, and I'll keep doing so even if everyone migrates to Facebook/Twitter and I become the last person to do so.

Hi! A couple of people on my flist have linked here so I figure, why not? I'm Alice, about to turn 23, about to move to Germany (from the UK originally), about to start work, about to move in with boyfriend in our very own flat... yeah I guess I'm on the edge of a whole load of big life changes at the minute!

I like to use LJ to write about my day-to-day life and I would say I'm an active writer and commenter. My interests are travel, languages, photography, food and knitting. I'm a pretty positive person, although sometimes I rant about things I try to make the best of everything, and I'm always up to try out something new.

Anthing else you wanna know, ask away!

mcmurphy79 I'd like to add you if it's okay?

I'm M., female, 25, currently finishing my Masters in Human Rights and living in Kampala, Uganda.

I've been pretty busy over the last year and I've often used livejournal to post about work, but I'm trying to be better.

My interests include travelling (I'm always planning the next trip and would hop on a place much more regularly if it wasn't for money), African Politics (although I don't tend to post about this), reading, photography and normal-people things like hanging out with friends.
