Name: Bunch
Age: 23
Location: England.
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I only share once I know people a lil better :)

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a young woman who recently moved away from her hometown and started university in a new city. This is a pretty huge move for me because I've spent a long time battling with mental health difficulties and have always been reliant on my support system in my hometown. I'm studying social policy and my career goal is to work within the third sector, maybe as a policy researcher. The worst thing about my new city is that I miss my two beautiful kitties who live at home with my parents. I'm fairly introverted in real life but I love connecting with people online.

Top 5 fandoms: I'm not actively involved in any fandoms but in terms of things I really like: Hamilton (and all musical theatre!), Parks & Rec, Brooklyn 99, Disney, Crazy Ex Girlfriend
I mostly post about... Adventures in dating! Adventures in university! Adventures in living alone in a big new city! I post at least one photo with each entry because I like photos.
My last three LJ posts were about... Dating problems and university
How often do you post? How about commenting? I used to post everyday but that was really difficult to keep up with. Now I plan on posting 1-2 times a week. I go through my friends feed a couple times a week and comment as often as I feel I have something to say.

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far:
Wanna be friends? I had a brief glance at your LJ profile and saw you like Dragon Age (yay!) plus we share a birthday :) (Different year though, I'm 26.)

Name: Jen
Age:31
Location: NJ, previously NYC.
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: Maybe when we're closer.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Basically, I'm a professional animator for TV turned SAHM. My husband and I used to live in NYC but recently moved to New Jersey to start a family. I pushed out a kiddo and he's now almost 9 months! My journal is fairly mundane since I'm not working right now, it's a lot of me posting about my kid and wondering how time has flown by so fast.

Top 5 fandoms: I like a lot of things, but I'm not really into fandom. I have no interest in reading about fandoms, fics, etc. Only life. However, I love the tv show Hannibal, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, Stranger Things, and all that good nerdy stuff.

I mostly post about... my husband, my baby, my clever cat Booker, adjusting to being a SAHM, and in general my boring life semi-trapped in NJ. I am really freaking boring. I don't think I'm selling myself very well. Uh, I post a lot of photos? Mainly iphone camera photos, but occassionally, I'll post pictures from my real camera. I'm making a 2017 resolution to do that more often. It'll still probably be a lot of baby or cat though.

My last three LJ posts were about... Baby. Baby/Husband. Korean food with my friend.
How often do you post? How about commenting? For someone who has such a mundane life, I sure do post a lot. It ranges from every day to every two days. I started this journal in 2001 and never left.

I'm looking for people who do what I do. Basically active LJers that post in elaborate detail about their lives, no matter how boring. Bonus if there are pictures involved.

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far: Uh, I guess this gif of my weirdo cat and my husband in a dinosaur mask will suffice.

omg what is happening in that gif LOL.

Name: evelyn_b
Age: a little older than my teeth etc..
Location: LJ
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: Not so you'd notice. One night I got drunk and signed up for Goodreads, but I don't remember my login information.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I read a lot of books. I have too many books in my house. I love a lot of things.

Top 5 fandoms: L. M. Montgomery, golden age detectives, more or less optimistic sci-fi, and Doctor Who. It probably won't become a fandom in the strict sense, but I am currently reading The Count of Monte Cristo for the first time and it is the best thing ever. I'm just a few books into my quest to read all of Agatha Christie in publication order.

I mostly post about... Weekly posts about the books I've been reading. Every now and then I do a meme or a fic exchange. I keep meaning to say some stuff about TV because I love TV almost as much as I love books, but I hardly ever get around to it.

My last three LJ posts were about... Books, books, books. I'm nothing if not predictable.
How often do you post? How about commenting? Post at least once a week, if nothing prevents me. I used to be better about commenting regularly on most of the posts on my flist, and I hope to get better again. I comment as I post: almost entirely about media, seldom to never about real life.
I'm signed in as enchanted_jae, but I post book reviews at another LJ, chez_jae. About the only thing I post there is book reviews (I wanted it separate from my fandom journal!). If you'd like to be friends, we may mesh better there. I read mostly cozy mysteries and urban fantasy.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a chronically ill (Crohn's disease) PhD candidate in archaeology trying to stumble through my dissertation with minimal fuss. Writing and cosplay and crafts are some of my staple hobbies, and I've recently gotten back into drawing after a lapse of several years. I've spent terrifying amounts of free time playing rpgs since getting a PS3 for my birthday in 2015, but I try not to think about that too hard. Garden witch.

Top 5 fandoms: I usually only focus on one or two fandoms at once, but here are some recent ones: Dragon Age, The Raven Cycle, Shades of Magic, Rat Queens, Vampire Chronicles

How often do you post? How about commenting? Once a week maybe? I haven't been great at commenting lately because I've been really busy, but I do generally make an effort.

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far:
Archaeology sounds very interesting, although I know grad school can be difficult.
What do you grow?

Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: This is where I share the most.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a procrastinator who is still trying to graduate from college.

I like photography, painting, , anime, manga, animation, knitting, crafting, baking, growing plants, dancing, creating stories in my mind (with a bad plot :P).

I prefer monster/scifi/horror movies to anything dramatic (icK!) except sometimes there can be a little drama in my fanfic reading (as long as there's a happy ending).

Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I only have goodreads out of those.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I live in Chicagoland and work as an attorney. I go through periods of voracious reading and then not picking up a book for months and months. I have an inordinate love of corned beef and cabbage, dislike pie, and fear bees. I love traveling, but don't do it nearly enough. I watch and follow a lot of news. Others have said about me:

"You are unapologetically you and that's admirable."
"You have a lot of old school beliefs for a liberal"
"Your exhuberant enthusiasm for corned beef and cabbage is kind of endearing! :D"

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm an assistant editor for a magazine and a former English major (and continued bookworm). I enjoy reading, watching movies, trying new types of food, and obsessing over the things I'm a fan of!

I tend to be pretty positive and agreeable most of the time.

Top 5 fandoms: Doctor Who, MCU, Sherlock, British comedy.

My last three LJ posts were about... What I did with my friend over the weekend (watched Captain America movies, mostly) and various work parties; what I did over the weekend and meme answers for an end of year meme; an old photo of me for the same meme.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I try to post roughly once a week/four times per month, and I try to be a frequent commenter!

Age:32
Location:Missouri
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I don't use my tumblr, Instagram or twitter that much. Goodreads is: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/3331021-abbey

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm not always very chatty but I think it depends on the person. I'm a worrier. I'm also friendly to everyone but I can also be reserved. I am a library clerk and I've been working there for about 10 years going on 11 years soon. I still live at home.

Top 5 fandoms:Orphan Black, Harry Potter, Stranger things, The Walking Dead and the super hero shows (The Flash,Arrow,Supergirl and Legends Of Tomorrow)
I mostly post about...Real life stuff. Work, family/living conditions. Whatever I'm worried about and it's just usually the same stuff over and over. I try to talk about fandom stuff when I have stuff to say.
My last three LJ posts were about...my evaluation, friends cuts (because I recently did one) and just a post to wish someone a happy birthday
How often do you post? How about commenting? Sometimes, I post a lot and sometimes, it might just be once or twice a week. It really depends. It's rare that I post more than 2 times in one day or post 3 times in one day. I comment whenever I have something to say. A lot of times, I don't know what to say. And I've been using the 'likes' (the hearts) a little bit.

Age: 25

Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: -

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I am a practical nurse who works at a sub-acute unit. I like learning about people from different cultures and backgrounds. I love food and drinks (tea, wine, beer, cocktails), I think I am a good person. My friends would say I'm understanding, patient, and weird. I like snail mail or email from time to time.

Top 5 fandoms: Oh my gosh.. Many to mention on this one. I'm interested in many things but not too invested enough to be a fandom. I have so much on queue too but I do like: A Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, The Office, Parks and Recreations, Star Trek (trying to finish it), a bunch of retro anime, and more nerdy things. Dystopian books or shows, Marvel (Xmen, Avengers, Deadpool).. I'm trying to get into more so share me! I'm open
I mostly post about... Life, work, reflections, thoughts. I'm not the type that would post about a day to day life thing (from what I ate in bestfriend or if I showered.. you get what I mean haha).
My last three LJ posts were about... a thought dump about my parents, work life and my boyfriend, and a photo of a hiking day.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I comment more than I post. I post a minimum of once a week. Maximum 3 times a week. Sometimes more than that. I do read from everyday to every other day or two. I usually say if I'm in a hiatus that would last a certain time. I'm an active commentor and I do my best to get to know my friend list. I believe that one day, I might stop Livejournal and could make lifelong friends. Who knows!
