Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm closest to a Slytherpuff, and I love cats, crocheting, knitting, music, books/reading, the colour pink, and drawing. I have a degree and certifications and nothing to show for any except soul-crushing debt and mounting cynicism. My life goal is to befriend every and any animal I can.

Top 5 fandoms: Kpop, anime, and super heroes: EXO, BTS, Mamamoo, DCU, Yuri on Ice
I mostly post about... music, my feelings (usually frustration and/or rage), and current events like environmental threats and other politics
My last three LJ posts were about... The most recent is a song I like, which I do most every Monday, then an upset rant over the DuckTales reboot, and then a note that I'd sent out holiday cards.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I usually post at least weekly but try to comment more frequently, unless I have nothing substantial to say.

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far:
I just woke up.
Hooray cats, music, books, and cynicism. Also anime and rage. Friends?

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I am socially awkward, perpetually confused, a trifle weird and scared easily by loud noises. I'm also very introverted, binge watch shows too often, and try to exercise every day.

Honestly though, I would love it if I could burrito up in a cozy blanket all day, live in a pillow fort in the middle of a huge fully stocked (and closed) bookstore, and have things I need/want magically delivered to said fort. While I'm dreaming of things.... I'd also like a trained unicorn, one that can help keep out unwanted beasties and monsters, as well as take me to appointments and such. Oh, and a glitter bomb alarm system, since glitter is the herpes of the craft world so ain't noone gonna try to break in. XD

Top 5 fandoms: Not really a fandom person, but right now I do enjoy 'Big Bang Theory', 'Z Nation', DC TV Shows, the world of Harry Potter, and quite a few 80's TV shows/Movies.

I mostly post about... Random personal life tidbits and nonsense. Pet blatherings. Some meme type things. Pictures I've taken of said lifes tidbits and nonsense. Occasional creative bursts, or shopping adventures. Pretty basic life stuff really.

My last three LJ posts were about... Deer in the snow, Christmas decorating, and our kitty Bongo.

How often do you post? How about commenting? I have been posting about one or two times a week lately. I may post more often in the future, but right now that seems to be the go-to number.
I try to comment when I can think of something to say, but go a long time with out commenting sometimes with out realizing.
I am not a great match for people who need comments for post validation and affirmation. Commenting frequency varies with me quite a lot. IRL it would be called being a 'good listener'. Oddly enough, that doesn't translate the same with written words. XD

I am definitely adding you :)

Top 5 fandoms: Harry Potter, Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sailor Moon, Utena, Game of Thrones.
I mostly post about... Work, books, politics, life, mental illness/bipolar II disorder, quite a bit of navel-gazing.

How often do you post? How about commenting? I try to post once a week. I comment on every entry I have something relevant and useful to say.

My last three LJ posts were about...
2 were about returning to LJ on a regular basis, one was about exercise.
How often do you post? How about commenting?
Well, I guess we'll see. I hadn't been active here in some time, but I'm giving it a go because I've recently been energized by the Livejournal is Alive meme. Hopefully much more often, and in place of posting on Bookface.
A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far:
errr...I'll get back to you on that one.
I know, that Live Journal is alive thing on Facebook has me going, too. But, I haven't posted since August, my LJ is Friends Only, and like a spazz, I forgot how to add people you don't know in here.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I very much prefer the live and let live principle. I read a lot. I mostly don’t talk politics, but lean strongly left. I think I’m fairly openminded and even if I’m cis-gendered and heterosexual, a large part of my friend circle is not. I like to sew and historical costuming.

I mostly post about... Fanfiction. Life (f-locked). Other fandom-related stuff
My last three LJ posts were about... A fanfic meme, writing woes and writing woes (Yuletide is upon us.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I post several times a week. I try to comment often, but it depends on time able to spend online and if I feel I can say something of value.

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

Historical costuming, all the fandoms I like, and a lefty! I'd be particularly interested in seeing your costuming projects.

Friended you, so you can take a nose on my journal. You don't have to friend me back unless you like what you see.

(If you like costuming and Versailles, here's a post of a costuming event I went to in Versailles. Might get your interest!)

Location: England.
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I only go on tumblr very, very occasionally and not on the others.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less:
Old British TV fan who tends to be an evil cult of nice member. A terrible fandom enabler.

Top 5 fandoms: Classic Doctor Who (do watch New Who, but am more fannish about classic), Adam Adamant Lives!, Shakespeare's Histories (First Tet really), Sapphire and Steel, Blake's 7.
I mostly post about... Fannish stuff; my rl is dull and routine. Fan fic, the odd bit of iffy fanart, what I've been watching/reading.
My last three LJ posts were about... What I've been reading, Yuletide, fannish bingo and Fandom Stocking, which isn't representative but it's that time of year.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I average about two posts a week.Good at commenting as long as you don't expect half a book as a comment!

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: SJW aware type person who is involved with zines and diy events in my city. Try to do loads of creative projects and not get too down about my day jobs of which I have two now. One is a nice job in a library two days a week. I'm vegan, heavily into podcasts, love reading, music (indie/indiepop/that sorta thing), I make zines and most of my social life is revolving around people I meet through that. I moan a bit! I talk about mental health candidly. Erm idk what else I write like I speak, I want to try and use lj again like I used to... so new people and content will hopefully help :)

Top 5 fandoms: Zines above everything. ER (Used to be an active Carby shipper on a board anyone else out there?!?!?!) Buffy. this year I watched Gilmore Girls so have been into that. Also currently watching for the first time: the sopranos and the wire. I currently watch transparent, Louie, broad city, girls, orange is the new black... that sort of thing.

I mostly post about... Whatever is going on in my life at the moment.

My last three LJ posts were about... I'm doing a December meme. My journal is always about real life stuff and the odd meme or post about something I'm doing elsewhere on the internet. I don't post about fandom on lj and am not really into reading about it on lj - sorry, I know!

How often do you post? How about commenting? I try to comment at least once a week, often more if the person updates more. I used to update loads! I haven't so much since I switched to a new journal earlier this year. New Years resolution?

I'd like to be friends :D

Name:
I teach, so I'm very wary about blogging my real name!
Age:
46
Location:
London, UK.
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc:
It's LJ only for me!
Describe yourself in five sentences or less:
Geeky academic artist and animator. I teach at a University and I'm just coming to the end of a PhD. A bit of a workaholic. I love travelling, (67 countries so far) especially to places with lots of interesting history, architecture and good food.

Top 5 fandoms:
I like sci-fi and fantasy: Harry Potter, Babylon 5, Blakes 7, Dr Who and Farscape being some of my favourites. I used to draw a lot of fanart for Game of Thrones (before it was televised.) I don't post about fandoms though, but I do like a measure of historical re-enactment and will post up photos of myself and chums dressed in Regency or 18th Century clothes. However, my interests in re-enactment focus more on dressing up, going to Balls, drinking and being a bit of a twat rather than proper re-enacting. (Which is actually pretty authentic for balls.)

I mostly post about...
My work, mostly the research side (the possibilities for animation and virtual reality to help people severely ill or in great pain and distress.) My artwork (mostly cartoony stuff.) Lots of photos of my mother's new Sausage Dog. Travelling to places (I went to Iran last year, which was amazing, apart from the painful lack of beer and getting hijab-rash.) My clumsy attempts to learn German, French and Hungarian. Dressing up, visiting odd and sometimes secret places in London. Oh and ranting. I am incandescently enraged about Brexit and will periodically kick off about it, usually triggered by the latest idiocy from the UK government. If you think Brexit is great, (or you think Trump is great) stay away. Oh, and I swear a lot, sometimes for comic relief and particularly when ranting.

My last three LJ posts were about...
I've been drawing a Hungarian Advent Calendar, with an animal illustration and its Hungarian word, 3 pics every three days more or less. An excitable post about my research, and a waaaah post about my language learning.

How often do you post? How about commenting?
I post almost daily. I've abandoned Facebook and I suppose I'm trying to use LJ more as it was used looong ago before everyone ran off the the world of likes and links. My posts are mostly text with accompanying photos or illustration. I do LJ cut long posts though. I like to comment. It may not be a great comment, but it's a comment!

Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I have a blog at http://notafraidofstripes.blogspot.com/. I have an art website at http://www.amygreenan.com. IG is amygreenan. On Goodreads as Amy Greenan.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I am a queer who has been in a hetero, monogamous relationship for almost 17 years. I am an artist and I paint and do graphic design. I love all animals, but especially cats and we currently have three girl kitties. I have been developing my skills as a runner and starting to get into weight lifting – I love to challenge myself physically, even though/because I am fat.

Top 5 fandoms: Hm... Not really any, to be honest. I'm sure this is wrong but nothing is coming to me right now.

I mostly post about... real life stuff. My LJ is like a perzine of old... in fact, it is an extension of the zine I used to make, Highest Population of Rock Stars. Art, design, running, gym stuff, cats, relationships, neuroses, movies, books, annoyances, triumphs.

My last three LJ posts were about... Labor Day weekend; a random bullet list of thoughts (positive and negative); and being stressed out and an INFJ analysis.

How often do you post? How about commenting? I have only been posting a few times a year lately, but have been dying to revive my LJ fully. I need it in my life. I can't post things elsewhere that I can post here. I am a pretty good commenter in general – I like reaching out to people!

Age: 22
Location: Canada
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I don't have the attention to maintain other social medias.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less:
• I'm just here for LotR.
• I watch a lot of documentaries on true crime, and the unexplained/eerie stuff.
• I really, really, really love books.
• I binge watch shows and then forget about them, until I binge watch again weeks later.
• My dog is the most important thing to me.

Top 5 fandoms: LotR/The Hobbit, Game of Thrones, X-Men... does Shark Week count? I'm really drawing a blank for this lol
I mostly post about... A bit of everything, because it's usually little things that happened throughout my day.
My last three LJ posts were about... 1) pictures of my dog in the snow, 2) thefridayfive questionnaire, and 3) work, books, and Hue box.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I try to post at least once a week. I check my f-list and comment daily though.

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far:
Okay I add you? I liked that you mentioned X-men and I've been an X-men fan for a while. I love to read too.

I do have to warn that my LJ is boring AF, mostly lists of things to be grateful for. What else? I'm a fangirl to various drag queens, casual fan of many sci-fi/fantasy shows, loved LOTR but for some reason never got fannish about it.

Age: 39
Location: Florida
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: Goodreads! Yes!

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I am a married mom of two awesome daughters, and I work as a transportation planner, a job I love 90 percent of the time, which is pretty amazing. I have tons of hobbies, and I volunteer, mostly through our synagogue where I am chairing and reinvigorating our Social Justice committee, because: 2016. I love having ongoing projects, whether it's to learn something, to track something, to better myself, or to better our community/tiny corner of the world. I don't sleep much.

Top 5 fandoms: Does it make me a fuddy-duddy that I resist claiming to have fandoms? I just want to really, really like things! :) I love Harry Potter (we are reading Chamber of Secrets with my girls, aiming to finish on Christmas Eve when we'll watch the movie and have treats like butterbeer and rock cakes!), all things PBS (give me my Old Lady Shows all day long! Downton Abbey, British Bakeoff, Poldark, etc!), Game of Thrones, Broadway (Hamilton! Good god!), sewing/quilting/reading/tea-ing (can that be a fandom??). Apparently I love parenthetical interjections too...

I mostly post about: everyday life, struggles, celebrations, memory-keeping efforts for my girls, recipes, travels.

My last three LJ posts were about: missing LiveJournal, a mother-daughter gathering that was thanks to a LJ due date community, a dream that shook me up (wow, that's not going to sell me...)

How often do you post? How about commenting? Not often anymore, but I desperately miss this journal and communities here and am determined to increase my journaling. I try to comment to let folks know someone is reading and cares.

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far: Too awkward searching for appropriate GIFs at work...
Would you be interested in becoming friends? I have a post here, but am a fellow fuddy duddy-er as it pertains to fandom, Broadway/Hamilton, Harry Potter, and PBS enthusiast (Poldark has been on my to-watch list for so long!). I also took a peek at your Goodreads and it seems we have some similar tastes :)

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: (copy+pasted from my ao3 profile) I'm an eccentric fangirl/boy who enjoys reading and writing fics, prompting, and promoting things that I love. I'm multi-fandom and multi-shipper. I live in the USA and am of legal age. Married, bit of a homemaker and a catmom. Writing fanfiction has become my passion.

Top 5 fandoms: (pressure so many fandoms)
• X-Men (new ones like First Class, DOFP, & Apocalypse. Cherik trash)
•Harry Potter/Fantastic Beasts (good god all the rare slash/ace!Newt ftw)
•The Hobbit (multi-shipper like no other)
• Star Wars (pretty much all around).
• Game of Thrones (all about the Mormonts)
• Others: Star Trek AOS, Sherlock BBC, Cabin Pressure, MCU (including tv shows), Deadpool/Spiderman, Doctor Who, Dragon Ball Z, Fargo FX (Wrenchers)
I mostly post about... Fanfics (which are all public posts), rl (friends only), and pimping things like big bangs, fic exchanges, etc (public)
My last three LJ posts were about...
• britchell fanmix i made
• rl update
• fili/kili fic i wrote
How often do you post? How about commenting? Post multiple times a week. Try my best at commenting. Sometimes I suck and just lurk, other times I comment on all the ljs I can.

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

shitty quality but I couldn't really find any other good ones. btw i would be kylo ren.
May I add you? What caught my attention was that you mentioned X-men. Been a fan for ages, mostly of the animated show and the movies.

A bit about me - My LJ is boring AF, mostly gratitude posts. I'm also married and a bit of a homebody. And a fangirl to various drag queens, lover of reading books, casual fan of many sci-fi/fantasy shows.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Late 30s SWM; cat whisperer; sports fan; sci fi/fantasy enthusiast; comic book geek; childfree; Libra; bookworm; very spiritual; offbeat sense of humor; laid-back personality.

Top 5 fandoms: EC Comics, Star Wars OT, Terminator series, et. al.
I mostly post about... Daily life; volunteer work in which I participate; spiritual journey; movies watched; sports; pretty much everything really.
My last three LJ posts were about... Various
How often do you post? How about commenting? Usually 2x weekly on average

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far: Busy in the morning, but settled down now.
Name: Anna
Age: 38
Location: San Francisco
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I have a Tumblr but only use it sporadically, and I have a Goodreads, but never post anything there, just use it to read people's reviews (my own are on my LJ)

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: A talkative hamster, easily amused. (The rest, I think, is pretty evident from subsequent answers.)

Top 5 fandoms: Yuletide-sized SFF book fandoms (Rivers of London, Vorkosigan Saga, Vlad Taltos/Dragaera), LotR as my One True Fandom (although I'm not active in current Tolkien fandom), Fantastic Beasts reminded me that I still have a lot of feelings about Harry Potter apparently, and Discworld has somehow emerged as my gauge for friending people on multi-fandom memes (totally cheating here, but whatever :P)

I mostly post about... Everything -- day-to-day stuff (work, kids, family get-togethers), travel reports (with eventual pictures), personal memes and fandom memes, book write-ups. Currently in the middle of the annual ramble/AMA meme.

My last three LJ posts were about... Overall: exotic fruit adventures, and where in Middle-Earth I would choose to live, for the December rmable meme; work frustration and trying to counteract that with a positivity meme; the month I spend in Oxford on solemn pilgrimage 20 years ago. Unlocked - favorite Babylon 5 moments (also for the December ramble meme); thoughts on the new Rivers of London book, Doctor Strange, and Ghostbusters 2016; thoughts on The Three body Problem and some other books + X-Men: Apocalypse and Star Trek Beyond.

How often do you post? How about commenting? In December, I've been trying to post every day because of the year round-up meme I'm doing (and managing about 80% of that), but my normal average is about twice a week. I read my flist daily, except when traveling or otherwise AFK, and coment every day or two (I don't comment on every post, but I do tend ot comment every time I have something to say, which tends to be a lot).

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far: Currently on vacation, so the icon adequately describes my day :)
Your posts always lighten up my f-list, so here's my recommendation. :)

Age: 37
Location: Massachusetts
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: meh, not really, it's here and facebook

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a married bisexual woman. I have a 10 year old son-he is very bright, a great student, a great kid overall but can be really difficult to deal with as he can be very defiant just for the heck of it. I enjoy cooking, NKOTB, talking about family, bitching about the complications of being bi and married. My son and husband can be quite the challenge, so you'll read a lot about them. I was a cook for the past 12 years or so (went to culinary school for 2 years), but I am going back to school for psychology soon, which is what I wanted to do out of high school, but never finished.

Top 5 fandoms: NKOTB is really the only fandom I need. LOL. Maybe I'm getting old but I just don't have much more than that (unless food and cooking and drinking are fandoms)
I mostly post about... My family, my daily life, what's going through my head. Feelings that may be kind of angsty for my age, but I guess I never grew out of that.
My last three LJ posts were about... Babies (don't want another, I was just talking about them), a tattoo I just got, and my son. I was also recently trying out a poly relationship with a woman and my husband, and that did not work out, so I talked that out that for quite a few entries, but it's died down now. Not happening again in the forseeable future.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I post almost every day-sometimes I'll go a little longer but not more than a few days. Commenting-if I see something I can relate to or have something to contribute I'll comment.

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far: Okay, I don't want to say I'm old, but I just am...nearing that age where I can't figure out some things, so if this is a pic and not a gif, I'm sorry, okay?

I...um...seem to have lost my ability to even post pics.

My last three LJ posts were about... chronic pain; motherhood
How often do you post? How about commenting? i've been on lj for many years but have never been a super prolific poster- 1-4x/month or so. i comment whenever i feel i might have something to contribute. please add my journal if you would like! i love getting to peek into the lives of other folks.

Name: lost_spook will do. You can call me Spook if you like, but not Lost.
Age: 39
Location: UK
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I'm on tumblr, but only rarely (here, if you like, but honestly, once every so often I post or reblog screencaps or gifs from ancient British TV or film and that's about it.) Also lost_spook on AO3 and DW.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I run an annual commentfest called "Obscure and British". It's named after me. (All right, I'm an ex-children's librarian, currently chronically ill, which is one reason you won't find so much rl stuff, because it's amazingly dull. I love fandom, but don't take it too seriously.)

Top 5 fandoms: FIve? I'm obscure and multi-fannish and always falling in love with stuff! My One True fandom is Doctor Who (all of it) and other perennials are Blake's 7, Press Gang, Sapphire & Steel, Adam Adamant Lives! & OUaT. My interests page should give you more, though! I don't post a lot about some, but it's always nice to have someone who shares a niche interest whenever it does come up.
I mostly post about... Fannish things, writing memes, exchanges, what I've been watching (sometimes even what I've been reading), family history, random things (my wheelie bin gets nicked every once in a while; I tell my LJ every time), fanfic, icons, recs, going on and on about TV made out of cardboard and the actors I love in it.
My last three LJ posts were about... (Ignoring the birthday posts) Some fannish writing things (Yuletide, dw_allsorts & fandom_stocking), Five Random Recs, and a random amusing couple of quote from two books.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I post from about once per day to once or twice a week, depending. Mostly somewhere in between that, and I try to comment, unless the post is about things I don't know. I like to get to know people by chatting about shared fannish interests before I feel comfortable sharing rl things (although I don't filter down my posts) so sometimes it takes a little while before I can comment on rl stuff.

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far: I'm not sure my day would be worthy of any sort of gif? It was; it was fine, what more can I say?


(Because fave Doctor is always valid information.)

Hi, long time admirer of "Obscure and British" here and I love what you do for LJ fandom community. Your journal seems interesting too. Mine might be an acquired taste, but here's my ad: http://ellipsisms.livejournal.com/67683.html?thread=3589219#t3589219 Give it a try?

Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: only goodreads, and I'll give it to you if I friend you - if I can figure out how to give it to you.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a disabled veteran with one husband and four fur kids. Don't let that scare you away; I'm mostly content, and things are going good for me. I collect things like stuffed animals, t-shirts, and model dolphins. I love photography, and enjoy painting sometimes. I am looking forward to Hanukkah dinner with my parents. :)

Top 5 fandoms: seaQuest, Firefly, MCU, HP, don't think I'm in any other fandoms. Maybe XMen?
I mostly post about... real life. I don't post much fandom - just one post when new movies come out, plus a weekly reading roundup. . Sometimes I talk about football and hockey. I'm trying to get more involved with the SCA so if I'm successful that will come up occasionally. Photography comes up a good bit. Every week I post a question from the book "If: questions for the game of life" for my flist to answer. I'm in a program for disabled veterans, so that comes up when I actually bother to go.
My last three LJ posts were about... Recently I've talked about my swim lessons, setting goals for 2017, my dogs, going to the photography lab, meeting some friends at Starbucks for a write-in (in December, we decided in November to continue this one year round :D ), going to the gym (which admittedly won't continue after December because I'm not rejoining the gym), and playing Pokemon Go
How often do you post? How about commenting? I post daily, and comment when I have something to say. I'm trying to get better about commenting, actually, and I've had some success with that.

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

Best gif! It reminds me of an ancient and classic Pink Panther episode. I'm sorry to say that it doesn't look like we have much in common, but I hope you find a lot of other nice people here. :)

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a stay-at-home Mom with a p/t job at a grocery store in the evenings. I binge watch any series that gets my attention (Dexter is the current one) and I'm addicted to Netflix. I write fanfiction, and most of it is romance/drama with lots of sex scenes. I also love true crime shows such as Homicide Hunter and Web of Lies.

Top 5 fandoms: House M.D. and Back to the Future
I mostly post about... My life in general, i.e. what's going on at home or at work. Or both.
My last three LJ posts were about... I don't remember. LOL.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I only post when I feel like I need to vent about something, or I want to share some news. I will comment on my friends posts regularly though.

I feel bad about trying to make new friends right before I disappear on holiday but let's see where this goes.

Name: Amy
Age: 38
Location: NC
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: Those are f-locked but I have them all

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a single mom to two teenage boys (one in college, one in high school) and 4 animals. I work 2 jobs so free time is very scarce. I'm socially awkward and shy until you get to know me. Once that happens, I never shut the hell up. New friends are love <3

Top 5 fandoms: Only 5? There are way more but Gotham, Sons of Anarchy, MCU, Chris Pratt and everything he's ever been in and will be in, Black Sails
I mostly post about... Real life, my family and work, the animals (one of them is a snake so if you're snake-squeamish I am not the friend for you), my jobs, fandoms, just whatever I feel like posting. Also you should know that I barely have a filter, one of my jobs is manager of an adult novelty store, and I talk about that job. If any of that bothers you, I'm not the friend for you.
My last three LJ posts were about... a mix of the usual x 3
How often do you post? How about commenting? I only use LJ when I'm at the office so I try to post once every week day. I comment as often as time allows when I have something to say. I'm about to go on holiday from the office until January 3, but I'll monitor comments and add anyone who wants to be friends - I can borrow the shop computer. :-)

Describe yourself in five sentences or less:
I prefer live music over clubbing, the outdoors over shopping malls and I'm into animal rights. And I like to make it short, I guess.

Top 5 fandoms: none. Back in the days I was into HP and LotR and I like Sherlock, but I'm not really into fandom.
I mostly post about... every day life bits I find worth mentioning. Often with pics.
My last three LJ posts were about...
The weekend and my day off, including work, a trip to the vet and the OSCE summit.
How often do you post? How about commenting?
I post once or twice a week and comment a lot more, unless I feel awkward commenting on your entries. I don't know why this happens, but sometimes it does. No hard feelings if we just don't click and decide to part ways again.

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far:
I don't do GIFs. Too oldschool perhaps.
