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!

Size 12 is Not Fat by Meg Cabot

[personal profile] archersangel posting in [community profile] books

This is one of those books that I went back-and-forth on even put to the list of books to rent from booklender.com, much less actually putting it in my "impending" books list at the site. I kind of regret it.

It feels like it's two different books. One is about a former teen pop star that got dropped from her label after wanting to sing her own, more serous, songs instead of the "bubblegum pop" stuff they wanted. Then her mom ran off to Argentina with her manager and all of her money. Followed by her finding her fiancee (in a boy band at the same label) cheating with the latest (20-something) pop sensation. Because she has no money she has to move in with her ex's brother (who's the black sheep of the family) & take a job as an assistant director at a college dorm.

The other is a murder mystery of the "cozy" kind. I prefer cozy mysteries (where they don't go into gory detail & are light on sex & violence) but this one was kind of "fluffy" except for a knock-down-drag-out fight at the end.
Also at times if felt like it was trying to be a third book about how being a size 12 is not fat & is the size of the average American woman, you know. And if you don't know, you should.

Over all I had a hard time getting though it & would've quit it, but I wanted to see who did it & why. Seriously doubt I will be reading the others in the series.

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.

Cross-stitch Tuesday

[personal profile] glinda posting in [community profile] cross_stitch
I knew I'd missed a couple of weeks of checking in but I hadn't realised it was nearly a month. Anyway things are starting to take shape! I'm starting to be able to see where other parts of the design will fit in. The places where the leaves will slot in for example. And I finally, finally got to actually put some purple in - when I picked this design all those years ago, I was under the impression there'd be a lot more purple involved than there actually is...

Progress

I am actually a little further on with the design than this picture shows, but not by very much. I started in on some pink, but I haven't got very far yet. Hopefully next week's post will have some actually fairy in it!

Hi there! Pleasure to meet you all!
