Goodreads Profile

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I love to read, I like dark and morbid things, I also like perfume-making, essential oils, massage therapy, reiki, and wearing jeans and t-shirts.

Top 5 Fandoms: This term is kinda new to me, but I guess it means which shows/entertainment I dig? TWIN PEAKS! X-Files, AHS, Vampire Diaries (guilty pleasure), Silent Hill, Elder Scrolls Online, Freddy Krueger, more but I'm on the spot!

I mostly post about: Personal ramblings, books and book reviews, pet peeves, art

I rarely post about: I avoid political tirades and religious debates.

My last three posts were about:

-- Icons I made years ago
-- Caffeine, books, ESO
-- Blood pressure fun

How often do you post? Daily, if not every other day.

How about commenting? I try to comment as much as possible, especially if I can relate to something.

It's been a little quiet around here as the Minority President's administration has become the new normal and has stopped blowing up in a big way every other day. Or that's my impression anyway.

I'm still using ResistBot to tell my Congress people that I support Obamacare and that healthcare should be a right. But I'm starting to feel a little stale on that topic, so I'm probably going to start talking about my support for the EPA because I like clean air and clean water.

I was wondering what other issues folks are talking to their Congress people about. What's near and dear to your heart?

*tap tap tap* .... Is this thing on?

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm an artist / a creator/ a starry-eyed optimistic. I'm an introvert, a smart ass, and I say fuck a lot. (Don't worry, it offends me too) I live on a farm. I have muddy boots, painted fingernails, my own business, and a large collection of bungee cords. This is my fifth sentence.

Top 5 Fandoms: If you want to consider them as such... veg*n food, my husband, marketing/design, cruelty-free living, daydreaming

I mostly post about: Daily ramblings. Farm life. People in my life. Work. Smart ass things I should leave unsaid, so I write them instead.

I rarely post about: Politics & religion. I steer clear of both.

My last three posts were about:
-- Awkward encounters all day long
-- A trainwreck of an issue with a former friend
-- Whacking the fuck out of my leg while feeding the goats

How often do you post? Daily, for the most part. My writing style fluctuates greatly with my moods. I reserve the right to not make any sense at any given time as well as the right to make you think that six totally different people are writing in my journal. I even entertain myself in that aspect. Just go with it.

How about commenting? I comment when I have something to say, which is sometimes a lot and sometimes not.

malgrin: (Default)
[personal profile] malgrin posting in [community profile] 2017revival
Name: Malgrin (online… practically since “online” existed).
Age:> 49 (gods!)
Location: Eugene, Oregon USA

Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I don’t use Tumblr and my Goodreads is primarily just for my own tracking purposes. The last time I used IG, I think I was taking photographs of toilets on the campus of my daughter’s university… so, best to skip.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less however many sentences it takes:
I’m a (re)married woman with two children of my own and three stepchildren - all adults. I’ve got a granddaughter and a grandson who will be born very soon. I love travel, novel / strange experiences, natural medicine and gardening, artistic exploits, music (dark and crunchy lately). I’m expressive. I’m a practicing Pagan/witch. Pagan topics and themes come up in my journal from time-to-time. I’m politically/socially quite liberal (which may also come up from time to time). I’m a technical writer who is studying to be a hypnotherapist. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy. Useful! I believe in practicing gratitude and optimism, though I’ve struggled with a resurgence of depression a bit this year, I’m always trying to sort out how to feel better about my life experience.

Top 5 Fandoms:
I don’t write about fandoms. I’m not a fan of reality. I generally only watch/read things that are fantastical in some way (or are historical). If a movie or show doesn’t include magic, ghosts, elves, hobbits, vampires, zombies, superheroes, etc., I’m likely not going to be terribly interested. If I wanted to watch regular ole cold-blooded murder, I’d turn on the news. That said, I DO enjoy documentaries.

I mostly post about:
My life. My journal is really my journal. General “this is what’s up” posts are shared with friends. Things of a more sensitive or intimate nature are not. I am a very project-oriented person, so I write about whatever project I’m working on at any given moment (could be painting a nightstand, could be starting a YouTube channel, could be sewing a costume).

My last three posts were about:
Dinner with my son (he’s going to look for a new job!), protesting Nazis, and acing my past-life regression test.

How often do you post? How about commenting?
I post about 5 days a week (Monday – Friday / once per day). Once I’ve begun to get an understanding of a person, I’ll begin to comment if I have something supportive or constructive (or funny) to say.

Okay, this is me having a go.

[personal profile] moreteadk posting in [community profile] 2017revival
Name: [personal profile] moreteadk. I don't give out my real name online, unless necessary.
Age: 38
Location: Denmark
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: Angrboda on Goodreads. Don't have tumblr and don't even know what "IG" is.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Happily married to Husband, no children by choice, but two extremely cute cats. Preferred reading genre is primarily fantasy, but also enjoy historical fiction. Hate my job, but although we are wanting for nothing, only one of us working would still be rather expensive. Strongly introvert and quite shy. Immensely enjoying relatively new-found hobbies of cross-stitching (been doing it for three or four years) and patchwork/quilting, and am an ambitious beginner.

Top 5 fandoms: I don't really participate in fandom as such any more. I used to be active in Harry Potter, but although I still love the books, actual fandom activity is behind me. I will occasionally write about things, books, games, films, television that I'm enjoying, but that's about it.
Right now, for example, I've been enjoying "Grace and Frankie" (haven't got very far into that yet), and weirdly have fallen into "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" much to the amusement of Husband. I don't know what it is, it's just so charming. And of course my previously mentioned crafty pursuits. Can crafts be a fandom?

I mostly post about: Personal life stuff, which is always friends-locked. I also try to do 'What I'm Reading Wednesday' posts at least semi-regularly, and once in a blue moon similar for whatever I've been stitching or sewing. (I picked up the idea of a Crafty Tuesday sort of post, similiar to the reading ones, from someone on my flist, I forget who, but it doesn't seem to have taken off. Tuesday is not a good day for it for me anyway. Haven't given up on the idea, though.)

My last three LJ posts were about: What I'm Reading Wednesday (today), What we did on my birthday (about five days ago), and another What I'm Reading Wednesday (one week ago)

How often do you post? It varies. It's not daily, but I tend to have something once or twice a week or so.

How about commenting? I am not a frequent commenter. I comment if I have something to say and feel like I actually have something to add. I do not comment simply for the sake of commenting. Likewise, I don't expect people to always comment on everything. I would much rather have one meaningful comment than ten comments only made for the sake of commenting. If receiving regular comments from flisters is important to you, then we would probably not be a good match. I do reply to all comments I receive, although sometimes it takes me a little while to do so.

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far: To be honest, I don't actually like GIFs at all. I find these constantly moving images distracting and a little unpleasant to look at. I've got a browser extension installed that makes them play once and not repeat, and it's worth its metaphorical weight in gold.

Here we are midweek and so it's time for our anti-procrastination post. What is the one thing that's hanging over you, dragging you down and all those other descriptions that apply? Something that if you just had the oomph to tackle it would fix it and leave you free of its nagging and gleaming with pride at your accomplishments.

Well this is the time to tackle it, you know why? We're here with you cheering you on, because we know you're awesome. So tell us about it and let us know how things are going (and whether you can hear our cheers or see our flying pompoms!).

Good luck team and go go go!

Taking care of the body

Hello fellow Bodies in Motion! Wondering about your stories of healing and recovery. I'm on the road back from a long layoff from running related to overtraining and muscle imbalance, and a major rock fall last September. Without getting into the details of the problems (long, boring, trust me), I finally owned that I'm getting older and simply taking a few months off with stretching just won't cut it anymore. That was a long road of getting past depression of not being able to move the way I wanted, at the speed and with the power I used to.

I hate it when I get the advice from medical professionals or massage therapists to not run, not push it, perhaps take it easier - I found the right mix of body work with an acupuncturist. After a few months of work with her, and on my own (stretching, rolling muscles, and pushing tennis balls into my trigger points at home), I'm now able to do some walk-running, body weight exercises, and the occasional short dyno at the rock gym. I also got outside to lead a few easy sport routes over Easter weekend. I used to be too proud to mix running into my walking, wouldn't climb routes I thought were beneath me, and didn't think strength training had a place in improving my climbing (totally bought into "if you want to climb, then climb!") In short, I was holding myself back with standards that my injured self couldn't meet, standards that were arbitrarily set. After letting them slack a bit, I realized how much I really can do after all, and that I'm on the road back to where I want to be.

What are your stories of breaking and rebuilding? What personal myths did you need to overcome?

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Queer lady person with too many records and not enough shelves for my books. I live in a small costal village, where I work in a museum. I enjoy traveling, cartoons, comedy and petting animals. She/her.

Top 5 fandoms: I used to be all about the fandoms, but lately... not so much! I read fanfic for a handful of fandoms, but it's p chill on that front at the moment. Actually, can podcasts be a fandom? I'm super into podcasts right now!
  1.  all the podcasts
  2.  Harry Potter
  3.  The Thick of It
  4.  Buffy (I'm re-watching the series along with Buffering the Vampire Slayer!)
  5.  Brooklyn 99

I mostly post about: Day to day life, music, comics, books, struggles with anxiety and depression etc.

My last three LJ posts were about: Life update, work goings-on, meeting a cat

How often do you post? It varies a lot! My journal was all but abandoned and updated about 1-2 times a year while on LJ, but putting in an effort to be more active after the move. Going try try to have at least two a week from now on.

How about commenting? Normally fairly regularly, but will vary in accordance to how busy I am irl.

Name: Lee
Age: 37
Location: Indiana, in the Midwestern US. (This disclaimer is included because way too many people think I'm on the Indian subcontinent.)
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: My Tumblr isn't active (I'm just there to read history fansqueeing, why lie) and since my IG is a selfie wasteland I would really rather not give it out to people I don't know well. It's not illegal to ask me for it once we know each other better, though :D My Goodreads needs an overhaul as it has been a million years since I was on there.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I am self-aware, snide, smart, slightly scary, and something of a workaholic. I love words and history and dead things. I basically have two modes: THIS IS INCREDIBLE, I WANT TO BATHE WITH IT AND SLEEP WITH IT AND BE WITH IT 24/7 and "lol no1curr". Sometimes I am a spaz. Sometimes I am depressed.

Top 5 Fandoms: I really don't do fandom in the conventional sense and don't make very many fannish posts. About the most fannish stuff I do is occasionally churn out some Greek mythology fanfiction (I LIEK TEH TROJAN WAR), which is under a cut so you can skip it if you don't want to read it. I'm not sure if history counts as a fandom, but the ancient world, the long eighteenth century, and Tokugawa Japan are three of the great loves of my life.

I mostly post about: Real life, in which my lolmom and my jobs play rather large roles. Mildly entertaining things that someone said or did at work. Occasionally things I wrote, if I'm okay with people seeing them. Sometimes the odd to-do list, if I'm okay with people seeing that. Things I'm reading. Occasionally pictures. Anything that comes to mind, really. I may set up some filters for religious stuff (I'm Pagan, agnostic always, currently not-very-practicing and trying to fix that), but those are opt-in and no opprobrium applies if you're not interested.

I rarely post about: Politics. Social justice (my own interests therein are things like "does everyone have enough to eat? Does everyone have a safe place to stay?", not some of the more extreme things you find on the outskirts of Tumblr). My sex life (one, that's private, and two, I'm usually single and celibate, and pretty happily so). Things that I have been asked to keep in confidence. Things that I don't think anyone needs to know about.

My last three posts were about:
1.) I had a weird dream/here's how my life is going
2.) Hello LJ friends, I am no longer going to be on LJ but you can still follow me here
3.) (OLD) I drew a thing, here is a broken image link from before I switched domain hosts

How often do you post? When time allows. I work two jobs and am at work or in bed a good deal of the time. I'm hoping to be more active here than I have been in recent years on LJ, though.

How about commenting? I comment when I have something to say, and I try to reply to comments I receive. I am not, however, the person who says "hi" or "i leik cereal" just to have something to say, and if you have an emotional investment in MASS QUANTITIES OF COMMENTS, I'm probably not your man.

Age: No longer a teenager; haven't been for a while; simultaneously perturbed and relieved by that.
Location: On an island and north quite a bit.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a long-time fanperson who left LJ in about 2010 after 6 years and migrated to tumblr, but I deleted my blog there recently.
Trying to get a new start in fandom stuff because I miss interacting with new people and I really miss how LJ used to be (which makes DW perfect!). And I'm getting back into writing fic for my own enjoyment.
Outside of fanstuff, I'm a queerdo that's trying to maintain a positive outlook on life! And who talks a lot but has the self-awareness to put most of it behind cuts :)

Top 5 fandoms:
Right now, I'm super into Gravity Falls, The Adventure Zone, and Kuroshitsuji. My long-term favourites have got to be Pokémon, and Harry Potter.

I mostly post about: Well, this is new blog, so I can't promise I'll be consistent, but I aim to post fic, liveblogs, meta, and maybe some fanmixes!
I rarely post about: I'll not write much about my personal life, here, unless it affects me getting online (working and studying at the same time can be exhausting!). I also won't write much about real-world politics, and I'm trying to avoid fandom politics.
How often do you post: On my personal, I've been posting daily since January, but I'm not sure over here. Whenever the whim takes me, but probably at least once a week!
How about commenting: I've been notoriously shy about interacting with people in the past, but I'm trying to get past that and talk more. I welcome comments from other people, too!

Top 5 Fandoms:
Right now, probably Star Wars, Agents of Shield, The Originals, MCU and Kimi no na wa|Your name.

I mostly post about:
Fandom! TV and movie trailers, spec, spoilers and reaction posts, fic and icons I make, occasionally meta.

My last three posts were about:
A fic rec, spoilers for The Originals, an AoS sneak peek and squeeing about a fic exchange; AO3 stat meme and A picture post about silly seasonal snack food in Japan

How often do you post? How about commenting?
I post every couple of days. I tend to comment on fandom posts, less so on personal posts unless I've seen you on the f-list/circle for long enough that I actually feel like I know you.

[personal profile] summerstorm posting in [community profile] 2017revival
Name: Lix / summerstorm / aclassicnotion
Age: 27
Location: Spain, mostly. I travel Europe a lot, esp UK. Hoping to hit the US (LA) later this year.
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: [twitter.com profile] cherryroad (private) + [twitter.com profile] lixhewett / lixhewett @ IG / [pinterest.com profile] aclassicnotion / goodreads / [archiveofourown.org profile] summerstorm and [tumblr.com profile] aclassicnotion but I’m not posting on either very much. Mostly just lurk.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less:
I’m a sort of self-employed freelancer with a dream of being a photographer full-time who currently just does whatever will pay her fairly in the realm of design and blogging (lixhewett.com, fashion & travel). My family’s pretty poor, I’m pansexual and possibly on the aro spectrum but it could be the meds I take for my depression and anxiety. I complain a lot and am happy not as often but spring does bring a bit of joy.

Top 5 Fandoms:
I’m fairly multifandom and have been lurking for the past few years, like, more than anything else just reading fic? e.g. I read a ton of Bellamy/Clarke modern AUs and have no intention of watching The 100. Previous shows I got overinvested in before quitting them are The Vampire Diaries (def quit), Pretty Little Liars (may well catch up sometime), Teen Wolf (I go back and forth because Allison). I also read Marvel movieverse fanfic (esp Captain America centric, let’s not even talk about the latest comics drama because fuck them and their horse).

I mostly post about:
My life, these days. I got sort of sucked into by doing work and my public blog and I needed a safe space, so I came back.

My last three posts were about:
A quick update and open 'ask me anything' type thing, a post about my last work trip to London from the train, and a state of the union type thing on my mental health and various issues.

How often do you post? How about commenting?
I try to read every day and comment every week at least, if I have something to say. Posting is a whole other beast but I’d love to get into a daily short-post schedule so I’m minimally pressured to post and really talk everything out. But I did just post for the first time since mid March. So it can be difficult.

A GIF to describe how your day has been so far:
If you’d asked me this morning when I had to run out to rescue my clothes from the rain I might have been able to toss an OC gif at you because The Rainy Day Women is my favorite thing forever, but truth is I’m not a gif person at all and don’t save them. I’ll occasionally look one up on twitter but that’s it.

I do however love cats.

Do you like food? Do you like challenges?

Sorry about the extended downtime -- the machine's hosed in a way that will take me having about six or seven straight hours uninterrupted to fix it, and between Dreamwidth exploding over the past few weeks and my pain levels being fucking awful and keeping me from being able to sit up for an extended period of time, I haven't had the cope to handle it. I'll post again when I get it back up!
