OK - I know there's been quite a few of these in recent months, but here's another one.  Following a post by a friend of mine (both real life and LJ), I've decided to host a friendzy.  It's for people looking for active LJ friends, as so many people have now migrated to Facebook etc.  Post a comment, with a description of yourself and what you're looking for - and I'll poach [livejournal.com profile] elven_ranger's sentiments of......keep it civil, dont post links advertising the latest fake viagra, and if you want to be rude to someone, do it elsewhere (I have a delete finger, and I ain't afraid to use it!)   And dont forget to share the link so that more people can join in - spread the word!

[livejournal.com profile] goddessofchaos led me here.

I love making new friends on LJ and have been doing so for 12 years. But I'm always a bit wary when strangers "friend" me on Facebook and Google+, isn't that weird?! I use these sites for different purposes, obviously.

I grew up in San Diego and live in Chicago. I love Ireland, felt like it would feel like home to me, found that it did when I visited and still dream of living there one day.

I love to read. I watch too much TV lately and I think some of it is very well-done and entertaining. I like film, but being a great expense on my tight budget, I don't see many movies these days. Netflix has too many glitches and I am, once again, threatening to drop it.

I've been in administrative jobs most of my working life, but took a job a little over a year ago in a no-kill cat shelter. I work as a vet tech getting on-the-job training. My skill set did not prepare me for this job; love and compassion for animals did. I LOVE IT.

I'm entirely too human and appreciate others who get that we are all wonderful, beautiful, frightful and bothersome creatures. We all fail and succeed by turns and create our lives at different paces and points. I like introspection, but connecting with others is the whole point of knowing myself. To accept my own faults and oddities is to become more tolerant of others, as well. I want "to love." I practice every day.

Hi potential LJ friends!

I'm horrible about doing these 'about me' things. I never know what to say.

The basics:

I'm 35 years old. A professional student who supplements my base income as a ghostwriter and a paper writer for lazy students. I was diagnosed bipolar and have panic disorder and ptsd- but I am doing my best not to let these things define and dictate my life. It isn't always easy, but I think it would be boring without the struggle. I am child-free and will remain that way- dogs are far better than children.

I am an avid reader- will read anything and everything but my favorite genres include historical non-fiction, historical fiction, alternate history, sci-fi, mysteries and biographies.

I write- both fanfic and original fic.

I am a gamer- computer games (WoW, SW:TOR, pogo.com, Civilization V, Skyrim), board games (British Rails, Martian Rails, Iron Dragon, Axis and Allies, chess, Settlers of Catan), card games (Magic: The Gathering, Killer Bunnies, poker).

I am not much of an outdoor person, but I do enjoy archery and target shooting. Other hobbies include beading, cooking, web design, dog training (I am training my puppy to do agility trials) and learning to play the fiddle.

The unmentionables of religion and politics- I define myself as an agnostic pagan. I hate the democrats as much as I hate the republicans. I'd call myself a libertarian but that brings about shades of Ron Paul *pukes*.

I hate writing intros :)

I'm a recently turned 33 year old from Melbourne, Australia.

I love music, reading, photography, travelling and wish I could spend every day doing one of the above.

I live on my own with my cat, Turtle. I work fulltime doing payroll/HR. I'm in a concert band which rehearses once a week.

I spent three and a half years living in London. It was a fantastic experience and one I'm really glad I did. I'm now busy daydreaming about my next trip, which I'm planning for 2014. I know that seems a while away but I'm planning on being gone for three months so need the time to save!

My journal consists mostly of work rants, life, occasional memes (when I get bored and really have nothing of value to say), photos, talk about my family.

Hi everyone! I was sent here by [livejournal.com profile] changeofthemoon and [livejournal.com profile] ghost_light.

I'm 32, female, and live in the San Francisco bay area. I'm a former goth, pagan in passing, and have a wide variety of interests including ballet and fire dancing, artisan jewelry and metalwork, artwork, movies (horror especially), photography, music, cooking (vegetarian, mostly), books (fantasy, sci fi, and everything else), travel, and nerdy/geeky things. I'm known to post regularly, share my retail therapy binges and new hair/makeup things, make occasional rants, and will usually blather on about my jewelry work, the latest TV show or media I'm digging, or the chaos of having a three-year-old on the Autism spectrum. I'm very tolerant of differing views on religion, politics, kids, and everything else...as long as you are, too!

Age: 36
Location: a field in central Maryland.

Music: Metal only - Mostly old Black and Death. Satyricon, Bolt Thrower, Marduk, Horna, Hooded Menace, Entombed, Hypocrisy, Master, Limbonic Art, Dissection, Gorgoroth.

Hobbies: Warhammer - The terrible hobby, filled with terrible people. World of Warcraft - Currently bored and sitting out because Cataclysm is a miserable failure.

I don't do social media, mostly because I'm kind of anti-social. Don't really put much personally identifying stuff out there. Not an LJ for the easily offended. Not friends locked, I don't see the point. I'm occasionally too metal for the room...

Got this from [livejournal.com profile] hellbound_heart it's all her fault... :)

Hi! I'm here through [livejournal.com profile] hellaine. I'm Alex. I'd like to think that I'm fairly awesome. On the Internet, anyway. In person I'm a little shy and reclusive. I love cats, okay? I also love to write, I love to make the mundane and ugly parts of daily life entertaining and even funny, or beautiful, through words. I've had a pretty insane history, the usual LJ stuff - mental illness, drugs, eating disorders, daddy issues. The good thing is, I don't play the victim or dwell too much on that stuff. At least I hope not. I post a lot of pictures. I've recently lost a lot of weight and I talk about that sometimes too.

Meeeeeeeeeememememmeme.

Definitely add me if you're interested in this post or my public entries, and we'll "take it from there" :D

I am so bad at writing intros, but I love making new friends...

Anyway.

Hi, I'm Image (http://Ghost_Light.livejournal.com/profile)Ghost_Light (http://Ghost_Light.livejournal.com). I'm 41 and I live in Alaska with my amazing husband Image (http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=LonelyDumptruck)LonelyDumptruck (http://LonelyDumptruck.livejournal.com/).

My interests make a pretty good picture of who I am. I am a stage manager, director, actor and house manager who holds down a day-job as a receptionist to pay the mortgage until the zombies arise.

My 'journal is pretty much an open diary where I post whatever comes into my head. I post 3 questions (almost) every work day and have a few other weekly features just for fun.

I look forward to meeting you :)

I would love some new friends!

I am 33, I live just north of Minneapolis in Minnesota USA. I have a small home I share with my spouse, our three children, our cat and goldfish. I am a painter, a bookbinder, a poet and a photographer. I am self employed as a wedding and portrait photographer and am working on doing more art concept shoots this year. I am also doing a 365 on toys which you can see at my lj now.

I am also interested in urban homesteading, history, gardening, reading, manga and comics, mythology, sewing and gaming. I have a very limited diet due to celiac disease and a few other issues so I talk about that and sometimes post recipes and ideas. I have a lot of chronic health problems including fibromyalgia.

I'm not sure what else to say! I am a generally open minded person and have had a rather storied life. I feel very lucky to be able to do things that I am passionate about and I work very hard. I'd love to hear about you!

Sewing! Can someone please remotely teach me how to sew?

the hydrahead of me

From: [identity profile] laviemoderne.livejournal.com
I'm sitting on the floor in near darkness. I just got home and ate some veggie and tofu stir fry and I'm having a glass of Pernod. I live in a rain forest jungle on a mountain and it is cold! I should mention that I live in Hawaii. Did you know that it gets cold in Hawaii? It does. In fact, it snows in a couple of places. I drive a Vespa that I brought here from Italy and on my ride home I shivered almost the entire way. At one point I took a deep breath and when I exhaled I could see it.
I'm an unemployed, over educated, former mercenary and I'm currently a full time student again for the first time. I'm a DJ on a radio station. I recently officially published a photograph. I'm a beer snob and I have penchace for quality music. I hate mainstream everything, loath consumerism, despise facebook and google plus, and abhor society and most everyone and everything. I'm eternally pessimistic and depressive, and introspective. I'm well traveled, well read and have made most of my dreams into reality. At night I dream of revolution (except for the past week where I've dreamed of chemistry and microeconomics). I've been a lot of places and done a lot of things and there are pictures to prove it. Add me if you dare but beware, I promise nothing but that which is destined.

You seem interesting and I was immediately taken by your icon and your spelling of "traveled." Not that there's anything wrong with two L's; I just prefer the one!

Destiny? Hm. I think I'd like to read about your perspectives and enjoy your photos for the moment. Destiny will out...if YOU dare.

I write about mental health issues, lgbt, music, food, shopping, and my day-to-day goings on. You can check out my user info, and if you like me, you can add me!

I stumbled here via laviemoderne above; I don't know any of you! But I love LJ and I love having more random stuff to read while I procrastinate at work!

I post at least a few times a week. I think both my friends list and I are fairly active and I'm always confused when people talk about how LJ is "dying." Like, maybe all my LJ friends and I are the most boring people left on the Internet and I just haven't realized yet?!

I'm in my 30s, originally American, but married to a Turk and living permanently in Turkey. Almost all of my posts are somehow connected to Turkey being the most awesome place on earth or intercultural relationships or my love/hate relationship with learning Turkish - "life abroad" in general - although I'm snappy about the fact that I'm an "immigrant," please, not an "expat"!!

I work as an academic editor and sometimes I post about the ridiculous things I'm reading. I am a convert to Islam and sometimes I write about that, too.

My posts are all friends-only, but I'm happy to add people just to check it out, and then if said people decide I'm boring or etc, absolutely no hard feelings, please unfriend me with impunity!

I absolutely fell in love with Turkey when I went in September and would love to live there one day (probably unlikely though) but spend a lot of time reading about it instead. May I add you? I'm a kiwi living in London, UK at the moment.

ersatzkapitaen: Laurence Fox (Fox - Room - Hey You ani)
From: [personal profile] ersatzkapitaen
I don't bite! But I'll join the friendzy none the less. :p

I am Sandy, German, single, in my mid 30s, a self employed tax-accountant and have a diploma in economics. My hometown is a quiet place and I prefer it to the hectic life of metropolises. I want to enjoy life and not be rushed through it. I spend a lot of my time on the computer, both at work and in my free time. Living in this sleepy town, the internet is my door to the world.

I am interested in a lot of things, constantly discover new things that fascinate me, make me think, confuse me, annoy me. They come from all aspects of life so expect a wide range of topics on my journal, too. Hence the title: The Journal Without Purpose. I write about whatever seems interesting or important to me at the time, which can be both totally trivial things and thoughtful texts.

Most posts in my journal are about my life, job, things that happen, about my hobbies... I also cannot resist the occasional meme. I can be a serious fangirl, but I try to mostly keep that out of this journal, I have a separate one for it.

My journal is only partly friends locked so you can go and browse a little. The more personal matters are under lock and key, though.

I most certainly bite...if asked nicely :-)
Katja here, from Germany. Almost 35 (my passport MUST be lying, can't be...) but nowhere near grown-up.
Soon-to be psychopath with a license(I'm a clinical psychologist, currently finishing a post-degree therapist training), currently working in a camp for political refugees both for the money and the experience.

Passionate singer in my free-time, currently starting a new band, also play a little guitar (upper campfire-bard level).
Fave music includes Metal, Indie, Rock and Goth, a little classical stuff and Jazz for the cherry on top.
I read a lot (apart from Psycho books mostly Fantasy, Horror and thrillers, with a current guilty pleasure for those Urban Fantasy (romance with demons, vampires and the like) stuff.

Enough ADHD to make my life chaotic, just enough brains to get things back in order right before they'd explode.

For the rest...just take a look at my profile, ask me anything you want or friend me and see what you get. ;-)

My journal is FO and mostly in English, although I've also started to make the same posts in German again only recently.
Not a huge fan of Facebook (I have an account, but it is basically orphaned). I do indeed read my Friends page here on LJ and comment whenever I have something to say.

I came here through a friend's post - and I'll bite.

Er. No I won't. I don't usually bite. Not unprompted anyway.

So, I'm 43, F, live in Germany, have two cats and a bf husband (have yet to get used to it) and a house with a vertical garden.

I'm a self-employed project manager and biologist.

I love photography and reading, and fantasy, computers, role play games, on paper and in LARP, and all the things in my bio and interests list.

I post between three times a week and three times a day, and I have filters if you go "not THIS again".

And I'd love to make some new friends on LJ. Tadaa!

Wow, reading this friending frenzy is amusing in that there are hordes of mutual friends all friending each other. I guess that's the point right? We're all friends here - literally :) At least half a dozen of my friends pointed me here (and then friended each other)

As for me, I'm Ed, I've rotated the sun 29 times so far, and I come from a land down under, where beer does flow and men chunder, can't you hear, can't you hear that thunder? You better run, you better take cover.

Up until recently I worked in education - as a part time university lecturer. Now I'm trying to figure out what I want to do with my life.

I love music - I have a music quiz on my journal on a regular basis - and I love friendly people. I'm somewhat friendly, and my sense of humour is a mostly acquired taste. Oh, and I'm pretty patient. I'm not one of these nutters who friends people and then de-friends them soon after because of a lack of perceived "connection". To me, that screams of the person not bothering to make the effort to connect to others. Things don't come without trying, right?

So add away!

I like the idea of a) not being a nutter b) not de-friending because of a perceived lack of connection. That's not really in the spirit of the friendzy.

I live in Australia but am originally from NZ. Notwithstanding that fact (lol), may I add you?

Hello, I found my way here via [livejournal.com profile] goddessofchaos.

I'm 31, female, recently married, and have three lovely cats. We live in Australia, but came from New Zealand a few years ago. I work as a lawyer in the field of media and intellectual property. I usually post about my cats, my job, my crafting (cross stitch mainly) and my future plans... I also poke fun at other lawyers and post a fair amount of cat photos.

I've been LJing since about 2004, I think, and have no plans to jump ship to Facebook (how could you LJ on there anyway?) or any LJ substitute. I am in the fortunate position of being able to work mostly from home, so I'm online pretty much permanently (gosh, I sound fun) so I usually post once, if not twice in a day.

I'm a 101 Things in 1001 Days follower, so I also post about that, and I have a separate (public) blog dedicated to my Mission_101 list. I also want to start a craft blog. So much to do, so little time.

Happy to make new friends, particularly with animal people/crafty people/Mission101 people/cross stitch people.

Hi there - I'd really like to add you, if you have no objection!. I work in the lower echelons of media/music/films etc (i.e. I temp as an assistant in various companies). I also have 3 cats - sometimes they're more lovely than others!

Greetings!

I'm a 29 year old female who just moved this summer to the PNW from the East coast. I grew up in Buffalo, NY and I lived in NJ for 7 years previously. I'm in Oregon right now in an MAT program to get my teaching certification out here.

I'm a spiritual "pagan" - meaning I'm not a religious pagan, though I do personal "rituals" and energy manipulation. I'm bisexual with a preference for the ladies, though I am seeing a male at the moment.

I adore kitties and have two of my own fuzzies that give me plenty of amusing stories to share!

I'm an avid reader, and with my 21 credits and student teaching, I've already read 5 books this year, and I'm in the middle of 4 or 5 others.

Sometimes I write a lot, sometimes I don't.. it all depends on how busy things get and how much I have to say. :-D

I post from Dreamwidth and have them cross-posted here, mostly because of all the DDOS crud that went down this past summer.. so I wanted to make sure I had a stable copy of my journaling on a site that didn't have attack issues. :-D

If I sound interesting, let me know and I'll add you. Since I teach, all of my entries are friends only. :-D

I'll comment when I have something to say, but if I am going nutty with school and lesson plans, I'll probably not comment very often. So please, don't add me if constant comments are a requirement for you!

From: [identity profile] whiskeychick.livejournal.com
I crosspost from dreamwidth as well. But I only read at LJ. I'm originally from the motor city and now in the emerald city (and I visit the rose city often as I have RL friends there).

Your second paragraph could describe me (although I'm much older -- 45), although my partner and I went the "marriage" route to enlist in the advantages offered by the institution for such a registration. That sentence was awful, sorry.

No need to comment, I'm more interested in the peek into others lives and developing interests.

Add?

[profile] hellaine got me here.

About me: Writer. Mother. Chef. Motorcyclist. Urban Farmer. Gamer. Bibliophile. Ghetto Mocha Inventor.

I LJ at least during the week -- I use it as my morning pages, because of carpal tunnel, writing in a real journal except for notes can be painful. So I get up all in my ergonomic writing desk and spew it out in my LJ.

I'm also originally from Detroit, A Combat Vet, and a whiskey lover (if the user name didn't give it away).

Would love some new folks to interact with. As part of my new year's "RuLINS" (with nods to Guthrie), my goal is to be more LJ less Facebook.

Feel free to add me.

Cheers.

Crap, I don't remember how I got here. Bad short term memory. :(

I'm Claudia and I've been on LJ for 10 years. I feel like I've changed a lot since I first started here, and the ways I use LJ and the kind of people I friend and keep has changed.

By list is very tiny because I honestly feel I'm doing both me and whomever I friend a disservice if I don't find I can comment on most of his/her entries. I love to comment (probably comment on 95% of entries, no joke -_-) and feel it's the best way to get to know someone. It makes me sad when I add someone and reply to entries and then get nothing in return. So yes, I'm a big believer in replying to comments, otherwise it feels like I'm talking to myself. -_-

I post about what's going on in my life/feelings/etc. I'm married and have two dogs and no kids and I'm not sure if I want any yet. I like to read about similar things rather than stuff about fandom.

I don't mind being deleted if I'm added and we just don't click. There's no drama. I wish it was the same in return, as I've actually gotten some pretty nasty messages from people about being deleted. I used to let people know why, figuring that was a good way of doing things, but no more. Too much drama. -_-

Anyway, please read my 'Friends Only' entry to see if we'd get along. I know I come across as very picky and that's because I am, but only because I want to be the best possible friend and I don't keep people who I find I don't click with. It's just a fact that not everyone meshes. *shrug*

Holy novel.

Found my way here by way of [livejournal.com profile] becofoz...

I'm so terrible at this part...

My name is Amy, mid-20s, Indiana USA...I love hockey, Harry Potter, all sorts of music, books, classic Hollywood, The Wizard of Oz, Once Upon a Time, cartoons and *tons* of other things you can see listed over @ my profile :)

I post daily & I'm looking for active LJ'ers to friend. I mostly post fandom-y stuff, picspams, memes, polls, the-rare-real-life-post. I like to keep my LJ light & fluffy since it's my escape from real life. Feel free to check out my LJ & friend me if we have some things in common :)

Hi everyone! Here through [livejournal.com profile] hellbound_heart, and thanks to [livejournal.com profile] goffburd for hosting this.

So, me, then:

Name: Rath
Age: 31 on the outside, but refusing as hard as possible to either look or act it.
Sex: No thanks
Hometown: Whitby, UK (just down the road and round the corner from Count Dracula, yes!)

Interests and habits: many and varied. Heavy metal is my life and soul but my tastes range far and wide from that starting point, though I'm a power metal and black metal fan first and foremost these days. I play bass, badly, and used to be in a band. I watch pro wrestling, mostly WWE with dabs of TNA, and take it far too seriously (DX/Kliq, Hardyz, RKO, and Miz fan among others if anyone wants specifics). I love the Warhammer and W40K universes more than any normal person would consider healthy, but that's okay because I'm a copyeditor for Games Workshop's Black Library so I'm paid to be this much of a geek about it. >.> I love to travel but frequently don't have the money to do it. I'm a non-traditionalist dark pagan, lean slightly towards animism and I'm a devout believer in narrative causality. I take things in and feed them if they sit on my doorstep and make sad eyes at me (everything from friends to lost strangers to other people's stray fictional characters). I'm pro-queer, pro-alternative, pro-freedom and usually pro-crastinating. I always cheer for the bad guys. I read (and write) slashfic. I have four tattoos and that isn't nearly enough. I'm very hard to shock and I'm always willing to listen if someone needs help. I've been told I'm too nice, but I've also been told I'm forthright. Either way, what you see is what you get...

Favourite bands: Iron Maiden, Dio, W.A.S.P., Lordi, Avantasia, Sonata Arctica, Children of Bodom, Darkthrone, Immortal, Mayhem (everything up to De Mysteriis plus Ordo ad Chao but not the ones in the middle), Morbid (eternal hails!), anything with Tom G Warrior in it, Fields of the Nephilim, Devilish Presley, Goteki, the Doors, T-Rex, and a million more.

Favourite movies: Trick or Treat, Crossroads (not the Britney Spears one, the blues one), Dark Floors, Mortal Kombat, John Carpenter's Vampires, The Beyond, Until The Light Takes Us, River of Darkness, Bubba Ho-Tep, Ghost Rider and more.

Favourite authors and books: Michael Marshall Smith - Spares, Poppy Z Brite - Lost Souls, Janny Wurtz - Wars of Light and Shadows series, everything 40K or Warhammer Fantasy related, Alan Garner - The Weirdstone of Brisingamen and Moon of Gomrath, Susan Cooper - The Dark Is Rising, The Lord of the Rings and extended canon, and Friedrich Nietzsche.

I am cool about being friended or defriended as-and-when and I try to keep my life and journal a drama-free zone, so I'm low-pressure company and like people who are the same way. I don't post all that often at the moment but I'm trying to improve, so new friends to play with would be very welcome!

I'm quite possibly late to this party, but there's no harm in commenting anyway, right? [livejournal.com profile] ellierachel sent me this way.

I'm Bek, though some on my LJ refer to me as Bella which is a very old nickname that's sort of stuck over the years. I'm 25 years old and Australian (and also an Italian citizen). My fiance is a Swiss-born Englishman and we'll be married in November! I met him on a trip to Europe, and between now and then lived in the UK for a year and a half, and will be heading back over there for a few months at the end of the year.

I am an almost-qualified teacher and currently living in a world between temping and receiving my final teaching accreditation.

My journal is just about the general happenings in my life, and my project 365 which I'm doing as a countdown to my wedding. My posting frequency is rather up and down week-to-week but I always keep up to date with my friends page, and attempt to comment on every entry.

I'm very very late but I thought I'd give this a try. I was directed here by [personal profile] ghost_light, as I'm searching for new, active LJ'ers who want to be friends.

I'm 43, married to a Japanese man for more than 10 years, currently staying at my mother's house in Port Angeles, WA and trying to figure out my next direction in life. I've been a college English teacher, a conversational English teacher in Japan, and I've worked at various administrative jobs. I've lived in Japan for a total of 4 years, and just came back to Washington state last April, after the big earthquake.
I'm currently unemployed and stuck in a bad economy, in a small town, and hoping to find something soon. In the meantime, I'm just soul-searching, starting to write a novel, and attempting to re-learn how to play the piano and read music. I love cats, traveling, hiking, yoga, watching movies... and I'm currently into many tv shows such as Supernatural, The Walking Dead, Glee, White Collar, Justified, Dexter, my newest addiction The Vampire Diaries. I mostly write on here about my own life, post pictures of things I see and do, and sometimes thoughts on shows and movies. Hope to meet lots of great people!!

I'm super late doing this, so I apologize.

I'm Deanna. I'm 27, a mother of two kiddos that keep me ridiculously busy all the time. I have a 4 year old and a 1 year old. My husband is in the military & we are both students so extra free time isn't something we are too familiar with. I don't journal as much as I'd like to, but I'm working on that. Right now I stay at home with my kids when I'm not in class or carting them around from place to place.

I grew up a military brat, so we moved around...a LOT. I've been wanting to make new LJ friends, so I thought I'd try this since I've never done one before! :)

I have a lot of interests, just not a lot of time right now to pursue them. In my ideal life, I'd solely work on having fun, taking pictures, enjoying life and travelling.
With my academic life keeping me involved in the sciences, I'll admit that sci-fi rocks my socks.

I use my LJ primarily to talk about real issues that I have. I use other social networks (FB, twitter) to post little bits about my life that are on the happier side. LJ gets my blunt honesty. I figure, it's my journal and I'll use it how I want to.

I hope to meet some new people on here! :)
