Describe yourself in five sentences or less:

Top 5 fandoms: If I did in general, I'd list a thousand. Currently: Black Sails, Sense8, Medici, Outlander, Poldark
I mostly post about... My life, my books that I'm trying to self-publish, my PhD, the odd fandom post when I've a reason to flail.
My last three LJ posts were about... Real life biz.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I try and post once-twice a week, and try and comment as often as possible. I used to be able to comment on every single post but real life is a demanding lady and I've been swamped of late.

Hiya, also living in Ireland! Care to be friends? If so, please add me and I will do the same in return!

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a cat lady (just kidding, I only have two; no but seriously, give me the space and time and I'm a cat lady) who loves traveling and never quite manages to save money because traveling is where it's at. I'm very into turning to a healthy lifestyle lately in terms of food and fitness right now. I've also been more and more concerned about educating myself on environmental and societal issues. I teach English as a FL and I feel like I'm pretty boring. There will be no fifth sentence, or will there?

Top 5 fandoms: They tend to change a little depending on what I just watched and I'm not really into fandoms per se, it's more about things I really love at the moment. Right now, it would be: From Dusk Till Dawn, Captain America (movie version), Halt and Catch Fire, 12 Monkeys, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. But I love so many more things. A complete list can be found here!
I mostly post about... real life stuff and tv.
My last three LJ posts were about...christmas cards, tv, real life stuff which is a good indication of how I roll.
How often do you post? How about commenting? It depends. I'm on vacation right now so I post less than when I actually work. I try to post once a week and I tend to comment a lot but often, it also happens once a week in a bulk.

Name: Arwen
Age: Very nearly 40, eep!
Location: Inverness, Scotland
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: Instagram: celtic_rose2312

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Almost 40-year-old Scotswoman, still trying to figure out how to do life, with varying degrees of success. Legal secretary, overthinker, amateur writer, daydreamer, introvert who somehow acquired a ridiculously busy social life, fibromyalgia and depression sufferer, occasional pagan, avid reader, fashionista, social liberal. Romantically inept, eternally sarcastic, slightly surreal, a little bit goth, hopelessly messy and permanently tired.

Top 5 fandoms: I'm not really a fandom person and that's not something you'll find in my journal.
I mostly post about... My life - the good, the bad, the funny and the stupid. I also take a bunch of photos of the scenic parts of Scotland. And my shoes.
My last three LJ posts were about... Daily life stuff, my clueless ex and a whiny rant about my health and general inability to do life.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I'm trying to get back to daily posting and regular commenting, after a very up and down year.

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

I'm just here to say that Arwen is on of the most consistently interesting/funny people on my flist! :D

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I currently work in Healthcare IT, which is a drastic change from my former job in Accounting IT. I have a BA in psychology, but I decided I liked the IT industry a lot better(and bonus points that it pays a lot better too). I am a huge foodie, gamer, health junkie, and Netflix/Hulu binge watcher.

Top 5 fandoms: Nintendo, Pokemon, Final Fantasy, and Young Justice. I don't have much of 5th fandom right now.
I mostly post about... Mostly real life stuff. I'm currently planning my wedding for next August, so sometimes I write about that and my opinions on any good video games I'm currently playing.
My last three LJ posts were about... My former emotionally abusive job. I moved onto another job last week, which has been great so far. Sadly, I haven't had a minute to post about it.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I try to post once a week, but with the holiday's that has been a little challenging. I should be back to my normal routine after Christmas. I read my F-list entries daily and I comment when I have something to add to the entry.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a language geek, a translator by training and an EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teacher by vocation. I'm a keen amateur photographer and an avid book reader. Also, a wife and a mother to a two-year-old. Travelling is one of my favourite things in the world, unfortunately I don't have enough money or free time to travel as much as I'd like.

Top 5 fandoms: I'm no longer very fannish in my journal, though I got on LJ in 2005 because of fandom. Actually, I do miss the golden days of LJ-based fandom a lot...Anyway, if I had to pick my main active fandoms these days, I'd have to go with Rivers of London, Sherlock (BBC), costume dramas, Bron/Broen (The Bridge), Line of Duty and Games of Thrones.

I mostly post about... I talk about my daily life, work, my family life and what I get up to in my free time. It's not exactly riveting stuff but it's certainly authentic. I quite often post pics, because I love photography even though I'm not a pro and I have less time to devote to it than in the past. I really like playing tourist at home and try to bring the 'explore and enjoy' mentality I have when I'm travelling abroad even in my daily life and the area where I live. I often post about books. I don't post a lot about the tv shows I'm watching, instead, because there are too many good tv shows and not enough hours in the day to watch them, let alone write about them...

My last three LJ posts were about... a long weekend away to visit a friend, a huge catch-up post on what is going on with me, a few funny snippets from my English classes (I teach teenagers).

How often do you post? How about commenting? I post at least once a week. I comment almost every day, as I check my flist daily on the go (I'm very grateful for the LJ app, no matter how crappy it is).

I suck at gifs, sorry! So I'm adding something I feel is important.
What sort of LJ experience do you prefer?: I adore reading about people's daily lives, I met so many interesting people from all over the world on LJ through the years (have been on here for over 10 years) and I think this is a truly enriching experience. Some of my best RL friends come from LJ! I firmly believe LJ has made me a better, more open-minded person. So, I'm not looking precisely for people who are exactly like me (even though a few common interests are certainly helpful). Mostly, I like LJ friends who are active and interested in sharing and making a meaningful connection.
You sound lovely! Based on what you've written, I think we'd be good LJ friends.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Simple girl from a small town with one green light. Loves her cats way too much, has dogs and loves them too. Colin Farrell flows fluently from her mouth. Blood flows through her Dr Pepper stream. And currently pouting like a 5 year old that got their favorite toy taken away that Finn Balor did not come back to Roadblock last night WWE.

I mostly post about... How I am feeling (dealing with Fibromyalgia my good days and notso good days), silly cutesy things my boyfriend does, books I am reading and make you want to read too, music I listen to too much, things I buy at Target/Barnes and Noble (usually books and music)- I have a no posting about work rule unless a customer is a total asshat and I want you to see how ridiculous they were and what I had to go through, and WWE wrestling things I am a superfan.
My last three LJ posts were about... My ovaries and the bad roads, JFK's assassination and what I asked Santa!Dad for Christmas.
How often do you post? How about commenting? Used to be daily but lately has trickled down to 3-5 times a week unless there are birthdays. Comments I am guilty of geting way behind on, sometimes I am just too tired to come on the computer at all or I just come on to update quick and shut it down then other days I am feeling really great and I spend hours doing things and getting caught up- so I will always check in on you it just might not be right away but I value what you have to say and I do get back to you and I do see what you are up to ♥

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.

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.

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

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!)
