Epic Shit On The Internet

Inaugural Post

Welcome to the sister community of our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1609208522720053/

If you've been missing LJ, and want to do something instead of just complaining about it on Facebook, we're here and we're doing something about it.

Consider this community an ongoing Friending Frenzy™ -- here you will find active LJers who want new friends and are going to fill up your friends feed with actual entries of substance and not just angry political memes and pictures of cats.

Only one rule - be nice or be gone. Anyone stirring shit will be made to lick the spoon.
pink flower is pink

& your friends, they sing along.

Hi! I'm Heather, I've been an active LJ user for over 15 years, in that time, my list has fizzled out! I'm looking to add a few like souls. I do keep my friends list fairly small as I do like to get to know my friends and vis versa!

Location: A small town in North Carolina.

Gender: Female.

Languages: English.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Happily married to my high school sweet heart. We share a "darling" 4.5 year old little boy lolol. I have 3 "small" senior dogs, 2 beta fish, and 5 pet purple pincher hermit crabs, no joke, I spoil them too! I love to read, nap, watch shit TV, blast music and dance badly, and (flower garden). I am very open minded, non judge mental, and have a great sense of humor!

How often do you post?: Almost daily! I don't tend to write massive posts but if I do have a lot to say, I will break them up into small posts.

How about commenting?: I do read my friends list and if I can something worthwhile to say, I comment. I don't comment for the sake of commenting.

About me: I do suffer from mental illness since 2003 (but I think as far back as childhood) and I'm not ashamed of it anymore. I'm diagnosed with OCD, bipolar depression, and anxiety / panic disorder with a side of agoraphobia. I am, however, stable at the moment. I was once a practicing nurse but I'm now disabled due to said illnesses and migraines.

I'm anti Trump #notmyprez by far, but don't really care to read political rants. I also don't like to read fan fiction. If you post a lot of pictures, that's cool.

Very fond of mommy / gardening friends but not a requirement!

I do come with the rule, if we don't mesh, no hard feelings on either side!

If you think we'd make a good fit, please comment, please don't just randomly add, sometimes g-mail eats my comments!

hello, everyone. i'm returning from what was, essentially, a 9 year hiatus.

hey all. i'm looking to make some friends on here. my journal is mostly friends only, but feel free to add me and i'll add you back. i shamelessly copied this introduction survey from Zhelana.

Location: pittsburgh, pa

Gender: male

Languages: english, spanglish, and igpay atinlay.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: i used to be fairly social, but nowadays, i limit my irl social circle to about 5 people. i spend all of my time working or actively avoiding work. i have a couple of dogs-- a husky and a german shepherd mix. i find grammar kind of nonsensical. shamefully, in my past, i was a member of the grammar police, but i've come to realise that if the recipient understands the point, why bother?

Top 5 Fandoms: hitchiker's guide to the galaxy, community, firefly, futurama, and back to the future. honourable mentions: arrested development, chuck, star trek: enterprise (it really deserves more credit than it gets), star wars, spaced, the increasingly poor decisions of todd margaret, the MCU, the DCEU, sherlock, the flash, and so on. i hate leaving things out.

I mostly post about: random memories that fly into my head so i don't forget them and my reaction to things i've seen that day.

I rarely post about: i dunno. religion? gender issues? like defining a negative, this is a tough one to answer.

My last three posts were about: the tesla model 3, getting drunk 12 years ago, and how my political views changed from 2004 to 2012.

How often do you post?: i post in spurts. now i try to post at least every other day, but averaging the last 5 years, i post like once every 3 months. i'm trying to fix that now. i've all but abandoned facebook, so let's see how that goes.

How about commenting?: that remains to be seen. i just got back into LJ. my friends feed was literally blank because so may people i used to be in touch with abandoned LJ. i used to comment regularly. i hope to do that again.
Original - smile

Name: Zhelana
Age: 35
Location: Atlanta
Gender: Female
Languages: English and a little Spanish

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a writer and a photographer living in a small house with a husband, two dogs and two cats. I collect things like tshirts and stuffed animals. I like audiobooks while I drive, which I do a lot because I'm in the SCA. I have a youtube channel unboxing lootcrates. I have schizoaffective disorder, but the mood symptoms are largely dealt with with meds and it's mostly just psychotic symptoms now.

Top 5 Fandoms:
seaQuest DSV, Firefly, MCU, HP, Star Trek


I mostly post about: Day to day life which currently includes a partial hospitalization program, writing, volunteering at an aquarium and zoo, as well as volunteering reading to a 3rd grade boy at his school. I'm learning to play golf, and learning to play the recorder. You may eventually get youtubes of me playing the recorder. But first I need to learn how to read music. lol. I go swimming fairly often. I'm in the SCA. Occasionally I get off my but and go to Synagogue. I'm a photographer. I also talk about what I'm reading, which at the moment and for the foreseeable future, includes reading the entire Bible one chapter a night and summing it up in a few sentences of "WTF?" once a week on my Wednesday reading meme. I also post music every Monday, and writing every Tuesday, and unboxing videos every Saturday. I'm also in the middle of a 365 day meme, which will not actually take me 365 days because I keep skipping questions for being too stupid to bother with.

I rarely post about: politics (although every once in awhile it comes up), my husband's dysfunctional family,

My last three posts were about: Weekly reading meme, my partial hospitalization program, taking the dog to the vet, and writing, considering starting a 101 in 1001 list.

How often do you post?: Daily

How about commenting?: I read every day, multiple times a day, but I'm not always the best about commenting. I'll comment if I have something to add, but I won't comment just to comment on every single entry (and tend to get annoyed with people who do that)

AGE 31
LOCATION Edinburgh, Scotland
PERSONALITY TYPE INTJ-T (emphasis on the second T)
MARITAL STATUS Married.  Been together for a good 12 years now, one baby and one cat.
EDUCATION Kicked out of high-school weeks before my final exams.

SEXUAL ORIENTATION Predominantly straight, probably like a 1/2 on the Kinsey scale.

I’ve also got a tumblr, Instagram and other such things, my username is usually corbiecorbeau – I tend to switch privacy settings off and on quite frequently for these things because I can be really iffy about my online presence.

FAVORITES
BOOKS Divine Comedy, Paradise Lost, Dune trilogy, Frankenstein, Dracula, anything Spike Milligan, David Niven’s autobiographies, anything Poe, anything Lovecraft, anything Pratchett, Sherlock series – this list is pretty inexhaustible.
FOOD(S) Carbs.
INTEREST(S) Reading, gardening, loud music, writing though it’s a hobby I’ve really let slip over the years. I really love fashion and fangirl over Alexander McQueen and Yves Saint Laurent; I’m not ashamed of my growing collection of designer handbags and dresses.  I’m a total ‘graveyard tourist’ - love history, medical history, all the ghoulish stuff, my dad and I both like to go and visit commonwealth war graves and talk about how sad it was how young many of them were. Big fan of old Hollywood and the old hammer horrors and have a particular love for Vincent Price, David Niven, Jack Lemmon, Peter Lorre & Gregory Peck.  I'm also a keen but shite photographer and I write haikus about things which annoy me.
MUSIC I love a lot of classic gothic rock, post-punk, shoegaze, indie/indie-punk, black and death metal, some gangster rap, some punk, some pop, etc. Love Bauhaus, The Cure, New Order/Joy Division, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Idlewild, Opeth, Burzum, My Bloody Valentine, Lou Reed, Nick Cave, Daft Punk, NIN, Tool, The Libertines, Gogol Bordello, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke,Tom Waits, Amy Winehouse… List is massive.
SEASON Not winter.
FANDOMS I don’t take active part in any fandoms but I really enjoy Supernatural and their fandom is most joyous. I’m also a big enjoyer of Star Trek and I loved True Blood and I don’t give a damn who judges me for that!


LJ
I POST  mostly rants and moans!
I POST ABOUT A lot of my posts are about my health and dealing with doctors/consultants and whatnot – I have some memory problems after a bad reaction to medication a few years ago so I tend to use my LJ to keep track of things.  The rest is just boring stuff about my every-day life and daft rants because I am easily irked by life.
I COMMENT If I feel like I can reply with something semi-relevant.
I LIKE FRIENDS WHO are interesting, share a lot of common interests, I can learn something from, are friendly!
THE LAST 3 POSTS I MADE WERE ABOUT

* “Oh yay I’ve had my cat for 5 years!”
* “Oh no! My cat’s been in a fight!”
* I went a bit mental spring cleaning.
DON'T ADD ME IF You don’t like swearing or shite banter. That’s all I have to offer.

Hello

Name: Regis
Age: 38 
Location: Outcrop, PA

Describe yourself in five sentences or less:   I am a kid trapped in a 38 year old gay man's body. Bing bipolar doesn't help. I live with my Dad and it has it's ups and downs. Then there is my Family I speak about but rarely see because I seem to be the black sheep of my family.

Top 5 fandoms:  Star Wars, Friday the 13th, yaoi, Marvel Comic Movie Universe and A Nightmare on Elm Street

My last three LJ posts were about: Hot Guys and Rambling nonsense about my life... so far.

How often do you post? Almost every day

How about commenting? I try my best...

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far:
Firefly - hope

Zhelana

Name: Zhelana - I mean, I have a legal name and all, but even my real life friends call me Zhelana. Only my parents and husband call me Danielle - although some call me Dani, mostly at Temple.

Age: 35

Location: Atlanta

Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I have a goodreads and facebook and IG and twitter. I'm happy to share them if we become friends.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I am a fat, disabled, bisexual, uncomfortable female who doesn't really feel male either, and who is happily married with two dogs and two cats, but no children. I write, volunteer at Georgia Aquarium, volunteer reading to a 2nd grader, am in the SCA, take walks while playing Pokemon Go, golf, swim, write pysanky (google it - it's awesome!), and still shoot black and white film, which I develop myself in a darkroom downtown. I have a masters degree in Latin American history, but I failed to get a phd because I failed my foreign language exam. I am a Jew by choice, and am currently studying for my bat mitzvah. I am the author of that December meme that goes around every year - the 31 day one that starts "a photo of yourself taken this year."

Top 5 fandoms: I still actively write for seaQuest DSV. Also love Firefly, Star Trek, Star Wars. The final spot should probably go to sports (football, hockey, soccer, baseball, olympics), but I'm not in fandom for that inasmuch as I don't like RPF and won't write it (except for occasionally doing mean things to Donald Trump in seaQuest fanfics!)

I mostly post about... Day to day life, then I have a series of weekly posts I make including Music Monday, Crafting Tuesday, What are you reading Wednesday, an A-to-Z challenge, and questions from the book If: Questions for the Game of Life.

My last three LJ posts were about...My earliest memory, a rambly post about my vet not calling me back, postseason hockey, writing, my dogs being sick or hurt, I ran out of all my meds and can't get more until the 24th, but weirdly I feel better so I'm wondering how much I need them, and the fact that Saturday is the 30th anniversary of my grandfather's death, so I'll be going to temple to remember him. and a post about how I almost became a marine biologist but failed chemistry so I had to change my major.

Don't add me if: You think people on disability are just lazy.

How often do you post? How about commenting?: I post every day, sometimes multiple times a day. I comment when I have something to say. I do read every day, at least once a day, and usually multiple times.

Posts: my journal is semi-private / locked because of personal posts. in the past, i've talked about my mental illness, gender identity, poems i've written, and relationships. i also have tumblr dumps, music, and the occasional drop of screenshots regarding whatever 90s anime has caught my interest at the moment.

i'm more liable to comment on other people's posts than to expect them to comment on mine, as long as i have something substantial to say. i don't post as often as i used to but i still read my friends list. if you want to add me, comment here or send a private message ♥
