Name: Niina, but I have a problem with names - I don't see how I'm supposed to identify with a string of letters my parents chose for me without even knowing me yet.

Age: Turned 24 on January 11th.

Location: Kajaani, Finland... from which you may conclude that English isn't my native language and thus I'm prone to making mistakes.

How do you identify?: I'm... queer? Can I just say queer? 'Cause I don't like to further categorize myself because everything is fluid. A year ago I thought I was going to transition but now I'm not so sure. Assigned female at birth, lived as a girl most of my life, but have always felt uncomfortable in that role. When it comes to sexuality, well, I'm married to a man but I tend to think of myself as panromantic and kinda sorta asexual. Not 100 % asexual but somewhat.w

Interests/hobbies A myriad of things!

  • Gardening! I started a gardening school last autumn, but due to my mental health issues (clinical depression, borderline personality disorder, anxiety disorder) I had to give it up.

  • Interior decorating! Once upon a time I wanted to turn it into a career, but really, I'm not good enough at it to even consider it.

  • Professional organizing! I'm just getting started on that career. I blog about it, and I'm currently overjoyed that my website is the fourth in Google when you Google my name!

  • Cats. I and my husband have one. A black boy called Hiili ("coal" in English).

  • Dogs. We have one, too. A Siberian husky girl called Voltti ("volt" or "somersault" in English).

  • The Internet. Obviously. I have blogs (yes, plural; I have an interior decorating blog, a plant blog, a Tumblr blog, a professional organizing blog...

  • Astrophysics and astrobiology. I'm terribly at physics and biology, especially physics, but I find it interesting.

  • Playing Skyrim and The Sims 4 (on Xbox 360 and PC, respectively). That's our hobby, really: we sit on the sofa, I spend time online and my husband plays Skyrim, and then we switch. (My husband plays a lot more games but I haven't gotten interested in, say, Lara Croft games.)

  • Reading. I'm currently reading about Feng Shui to incorporate that into my professional organizing business. Because the more I learn, the better I can serve my clients.


Favourite books: I've read a huge amount of books (learned to read at the age of four, so that's twenty years of reading for me) and it's always super difficult for me to choose a favorite. But The Lord of the Rings has stuck with me the longest, plus the Potter series, and everything by Jodi Picoult. I'm a writer myself, and I try my best to read as many different kinds of books as possible.

Favourite films: I'm not too into movies. But I've loved The Lord of the Rings, American History X, Fight Club, Klass, Zero Day, and a bunch of documentaries. What's that one in which ducklings jump from the tree? That scene is ADORABLE. I want to rewatch it.

Favourite music: My Last.fm will tell you more.

What would you like to send/receive?: Letters, mostly, since I'm kinda poor and can't afford to send packages overseas. At least not too often.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone who thinks we might have something in common. I'm not too into the whole "you must be between x and y years old" thing because I don't think age is all that matters in a friendship.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: No preference. As long as your English is understandable, I think we're good to go.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Anything's cool. Except liquorice.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Umm. I would like a letter talking about what's up in your life, with a bunch of random observations of the world and yourself, plus something that would be easy for me to reply to. Like direct questions.

Anything else you'd like to add?: I tend to be SUPER awkward at first, so... I'm sorry if I end up scaring you. XD Also, this Journal is only in Finnish so if you're looking to friend me, you'd better learn Finnish. ;)

[identity profile] hahns-girl.livejournal.com

Name: Christy

Age: 21

Location: Scotland

How do you identify?: I’m not big on labels, but if I had to apply one I would probably consider myself a lesbian woman but I have had sexual contact with guys in the past.  Still, I am primarily attracted to other women.

About me: What to say?  I am currently enjoying the rather long summer between my third and fourth year of university.  I study law at Edinburgh, and have a bit of a love hate relationship, i.e. when it’s stuff I enjoy, I love it, when it comes to referencing essays, I hate it.  I’m generally a calm person and enjoy staying in just as much as I do going out.  I’ve never been the most confident person I know, but I do try not to be too shy.  I love animals, especially my cats, and I take waay too many pictures of them.  I enjoy going out for drinks or something to eat, especially since apart from baking cakes and making desserts, I suck in the kitchen.  I love the friends I have, but am always happy to have more.  My friends would probably describe me as a little mad, loyal and funny, which all things considered isn’t too bad! 

Interests/hobbies: Writing, reading, watching TV, going out for random excursions, going for drinks. 

Favorite books/authors: Dean Koontz, Philippa Gregory, Tess Gerritsen, Kathy Reichs, Oscar Wilde, Ian Rankin, Scott Lynch, many of the classics...I’ll pretty much read anything that takes my fancy

Favourite Music:  I’ll listen to almost anything, from rock to pop, country to classical.  I play violin so I guess I have a bit of a weak spot for a gorgeous string melody.

Favorite movies/TV shows: Doctor Who, Grey's Anatomy, Rizzoli and Isles, Law and Order SVU, The Good Wife, ER, Harry’s Law, Prime Suspect, Hot in Cleveland – pretty much any courtroom/cop/medical drama, but then I also love a good chick flick (as predictable as they can be) or a comedy.

What would you like to send/receive?: Anything really.  I do have to confess, I have a bit of a love for snail mail with nice stationary and stuff but I'm up for e-mail too and would love to send postcards occasionally or little trinkets, mixed cds, handmade stuff, doodles etc. 

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone, so long as they're open minded.  Someone who likes to chat about all the random little things that make them smile and the things that interest them.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Anywhere! But I should point out that I only speak English.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Not that I can think of – just nothing too weird, I suppose. 

What would be in your dream letter or package?:  Something to make me smile, whether that’s a long letter ranting about some random little thing that bugging you, telling about something you found that reminds you of old times, or just what was going through your head when you last walked through the park, or sat in a coffee shop because it was raining outside and watched the world go by.  Maybe a few pictures, some little doodles or a trinket of some sort?

Anything else you'd like to add?:  “No need to hurry. No need to sparkle. No need to be anybody but oneself.” (Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own)

Name: Catherine

Age: 19

Location: Florida/USA

How do you identify?: I'm a cis-gendered female who identifies as Panromantic/borderline asexual (grey ace). I tend to lean toward being polyamorous, but can be monogamous.

Interests/hobbies: Writing, reading, baking, cooking, drawing, painting, cycling, hiking, community living, roller skating, canoeing, kayaking, free thought, puzzles, and probably a lot more that I can't think of off the top of my head.

Favorite books: Flint, Starborn, I Am J, several unpublished books that I've had the pleasure to beta read. I can't really remember the names of many books I liked enough to make the favorites list. Mostly I like fantasy, sometimes sci-fi, an occasional western or romance.

Favorite films: The Dark Knight (and pretty much any other Batman movie I can get my hands on). The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum. Oceans Eleven, Oceans Twelve, Oceans Thirteen. Limitless. Underworld (all of them to date). Treasure Planet. How to Train Your Dragon. Happily N'Ever After. The Crow (and sequels). The Talented Mr Ripley. Catch Me if You Can. Big Eden. Tipping the Velvet. X-Men (sequels). Equilibrium. Captain America. Lucky Number Slevin. The Saint. Blood and Chocolate. Shelter. Maurice.

Favorite TV: Dexter, Sherlock,

Favorite music: Basshunter, Evanescence, Nightwish, Lacuna Coil, Coldplay, Owl City, etc. I also listen to classical music sometimes, but given that I only really listen to it while writing or painting, I don't really know what artists. I just turn on a classical station, or a movie soundtrack, and then paint/write.

What would you like to send/receive?: Emails.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Anyone. I mostly read and write in English however. While I can read German passably well, and write it a little bit, I'm not to sure how well I would be understood, so it's probably best to keep correspondence in English. If you want to attempt correspondence in German, then by all means, but you have been forewarned.
Those are the only two languages that I speak at all.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Viruses. Seeing as it's an electronic form of communication, I don't see much else that someone could send that I couldn't just delete if I didn't like it.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Interesting conversation about common interests, or about being queer. Things that make me laugh. Or just somebody's thoughts and feelings about life in general.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts") Please do not send me anything against my vegan lifestyle, e.g. food items containing animal products or things that, well, aren't animal-friendly, e.g. leather, fur, etc. Much appreciated.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: I love handwritten letters and hand-drawn illustrations or hand-made things. They make me happy. Art trades, mixed CDs/mixtape trades, book trades... I'd be thrilled if anyone were to be up for that.

postscript: Sorry if I don't reply right away (to comments, I mean)... and for not browsing the community more. I have work tomorrow morning and must therefore go to bed NOW if I want to function at my best. :) <3

Favourite films: Hot Fuzz, Shawn of the Dead, Star Trek, O! Brother Where Art Thou, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Little Miss Sunshine, Spirited Away...This is actually a bit of a hard list because I don't really watch movies/like-like movies. I'm more of a television girl.

 Name: Jazzi

Age: 19 and 1/2

Location: Indiana

How do you identify?: I haven't quite figured this out yet.  I am female and closer to femme than to butch.  I am attracted to people who are intelligent, kind, and share my social and political values with little regard to outward appearance.

Interests/hobbies:  I like to knit, write, read (obviously), send obnoxiously full envelopes, record myself reading poems and poetry onto cassette tapes, draw badly, stare at the cute girl in my feminism class, and cuddle with people who are having a bad day.

Favourite books:  Wicked, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, and Mirror, Mirror by Gregory Maguire; A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray; Trickster's Choice by Tamora Pierce; Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling; The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood; Possession by A. S. Bayatt; The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova; Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle; Full-Frontal Feminism by Jessica Valenti; Yes Means Yes by Jaclyn Friedman and Jessica Valenti; The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir; ... A lot of other things ...

Favourite films:  I haven't seen as many movies as I wish I had.  I love children's movies because I believe that the relationships are so much more believable, the humor is more light-hearted, and because I very rarely leave feeling badly about myself.

Favourite music:  I like music that is light-hearted and upbeat, generally speaking, especially folk.  Again, I am not as well-versed in music as I would like to be.  Some of the bands I listen to frequently include Mumford and Sons, Sunset Rubdown, Iron & Wine, Josh Ritter, Kimya Dawson, The Bird and the Bee, and Andrea Gibson.  (Does spoken word poetry count?  It has lyrics ...)

What would you like to send/receive?: I can knit hats and scarves, I write stories and poems for people, I make awful paintings, I tear things out of magazines, and I can record myself reading stories for you.  I'd like to send tangible letters and gifts, but I would also be okay with e-mail, since it's faster and more convenient for some people.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone who is kind, has an interest in arts and/or politics, and wants to send and receive mail from me, naturally.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?:  Any at all

I'm kinda bored, so I figured I'd run through this again :D I'm really not big on letter-writing, since I'm kind of swamped with schoolwork and I'm really bad about sending things out in a timely manner (seriously, the only way we get rent in on time is because we send it in online XD), so I'm mainly just looking for email buddies and/or LJ friends :)

Name: Georgia

Age:
16

Sydney, Australia

How do you identify?: (sexuality/gender)
Lesbian/Female

Interests/hobbies:
I have seven days left until I start my final year of school, so that's a time suck. Besides that, I'm musical, I play the piano a lot. I've really gotten quite heavily  into my photography this year which has been amazing. I love to bits putting on a record and sitting down with a mug of tea and a book.

Favourite books:
1984 - George Orwell, The Virgin Suicides - Jeffrey Eugenides, The Outsider - Albert Camus, Atonement - Ian McEwan

Everything directed by Wes Anderson and Sofia Coppola, adore them both dearly. Plus good old Monty Python films and Mean Girls. Toy Story 3 brought me to tears, three times. Big fan of Skins and Mad Men, too.

What would you like to send/receive?:
Start with e-mail? I'd love to work up to snail mail! 

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?:
Well, I think I'd prefer to receive mail from somewhere far away. Not restrictive, of course. English speaking, please.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?:
I'd be really interested to hear from someone American or maybe from somewhere in Europe?

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts")
Non restrictive. Nothing that will arouse suspicion/get me arrested, I guess.

What would be in your dream letter or package?:
I'd love to just get a stack of photographs, of everything you do in a day. I'd send you mine, of course. That's my dream.

Anything else you'd like to add?:
I'm not out, if that makes a difference. It shouldn't I hope. I can't wait to hear from you!

Name: Kailey (Kay)

Age: 17

Location: Colorado, US

How do you identify?: lesbian/female

Interests/hobbies: lately, i've been working on a photography business (portrait photography, senior pictures for twelfth graders currently) (have a deviantart link!), and i write (it's ...very natural and beautiful to me, i don't think i'll ever be able to stop writing even if i want to or how much it drives me crazy) -- and read, quite a lot. i'm also getting into cooking (vegetarian/vegan style) and ...hm. i don't know, is jumping around on the outskirts of different fandoms a hobby? or playing with my ten cats? xD

Favourite books: Enchantment by Orson Scott Card is one of my favorite books of all time -- i love his writing style and most of his other books, including the Ender's Game/Shadow series. I've also really liked Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto and After Dark by Haruki Murakami. um, other authors i like include F. Scott Fitzgerald, H.G. Wells, Tamora Pierce, Alice Hoffman, Kurt Vonnegut... this gives a pretty good idea of the kind of books i like, though i'm always open to recs ♥ /reads a lot.

Favourite films: Hayao Miyazaki films, Miracle, R.E.N.T., Slumdog Millionaire, ...i'm not very good at remembering films i've enjoyed, but i tend to like indie & foreign films that leave an impression -- like Caramel or the Japanese film 46 Billion Years of Love (46億年の恋). more recently, i adored Inception (i like that kind of adrenaline rush -- the Oceans Eleven type strategy solving WILL THEY MAKE IT AND OH THEY ARE CLEVER! rush -- rather than a horror movie type of rush.) I also enjoyed the first half of Fight Club? /dies. And tv-wise, i love Scrubs, have watched all of Friends, am developing a strange crush on House, and ...watch design shows and cooking shows all the time with my family.

Favourite music: the best place to look is probably my last.fm. (currently 'good time' by leroy is stuck in my head/trying to become my theme song xD) i like all different types of english music (cobra starship, tegan & sara, lykke li, shakira, metric, jason mraz, stars, dragonette, the beatles, marilyn manson, eminem, loreena mckennitt, placebo, sam sparro, MIKA, modest mouse, bush, beck, tricky, marina & the diamonds, m.i.a., matt nathanson, etc etc/all genres), jrock (miyavi, alice nine, gazette, kirito, etc), kpop (epik high, big bang, dbsk, super junior, after school) and other genres like classical music, celtic music ...i'm open to just about everything and i love it when people share new music with me. (: I REALLY WANT TO LEARN MORE FOREIGN MUSIC, i've been exploring spanish bands, but i'm curious about others as well!

What would you like to send/receive?: i'd like to start with emails (PM me and i'll give you my email!), i'm more comfortable getting to know someone before i give out my address, but i'm a huge fan of handwritten letters. they're so personal and special and really give you a sense of who the person is. so eventually, handwritten notes/long letters and photographs/trinkets would be lovely o:

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: i'm fine with anyone! i can only speak english fluently and i would love to speak to people who know spanish - i'm not even at conversational level (i took spanish for about a year and a half; i can read it reasonably well but have trouble responding/building proper sentences :/) but i'd like to learn more/just really admire the language. also, i do tend to get along with older friends, better, but i'm open to meeting anyone.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: any country is fine! i like learning about different cultures, so variety is nice o:

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts") since i'm asking for emails to start with, nothing that i can think of!

What would be in your dream letter or package?: my dream package would be a stack of letters from different days of the week, along with little doodles or sticky notes, things that have meaning or make you smile, and little trinkets - like, the fortune from a fortune cookie or the leaf you found on the ground that caught your eye. I DON'T KNOW, I'M DORKY OKAY. 8|

Anything else you'd like to add?: i'm currently recovering from a serious chronic illness (CFIDS), so i'm not always sure how quickly i'll respond to emails, but i think that's part of the beauty of penpals - the letter stays and waits for you to answer it, unlike talking to someone in person or over instant messaging. and letters are personal in a different way o: also, i'm re-posting this (with a few alterations), and i want to apologize to the previous people who contacted me; i was going through a huge amount of personal struggles/changes in my life and wasn't able to keep up contact. things are settled down a bit more now (and i've recovered from my illness a bit more) so i have more energy for this (:

Here I am, reposting.  My old entry is here, if you're interested.

Name:
  Melanie

Age:  19

Location:  Missouri, United States

How do you identify?:  It's complicated.  We can discuss it later.  :P

Interests/hobbies:
  Music, video games (sometimes), art (more looking at it than creating it, these days), movies, writing, researching/looking at Wikipedia, reading (sometimes), people watching, vinyl (you know, records), typewriters, similar "old" things, yard sales (I'm a total old lady), defacing/destroying clothes, punk rock...  I spend most of my time just sitting around listening to music/on the internet/playing Sims 2.  It really is riveting.

Favourite books:  A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess, American on Purpose by Craig Ferguson, Nineteen Eighty-Four  by George Orwell, Rotten: No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs by John Lydon, Touching From a Distance by Deborah Curtis, Mysterious Skin by Scott Heim, On The Road by Jack Kerouac, anything by J.D. Salinger, anything by Charles Bukowski, anything by Chuck Palahniuk...  I've been getting into The Beat Generation, lately.  I like reading about people's life stories, too.  I'm not into young adult books at all, really (don't even get me started on Twilight).  My library's somewhat lacking (I do live in Missouri), so it's hard for me to find really great books, unless they're insanely cheap on Amazon, haha. 

Favourite films:  A Clockwork Orange, Control (2007 film), Mysterious Skin, 1984 (1984 film), Bad Education (La mala educación), Zerophilia, Fight Club, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, The Adventures of Sebastian Cole, Snatch, Lock, Stocks, and Two Smoking Barrels, etc, etc.  I watch a ton of movies, but it's been a while since I've seen something amazing.  I'd love to swap some suggestions, though.  :D

Favourite music:  My last.fm page.  But if you lack ambition, here's a summary:  Punk rock's my life (to put it simply), but I generally listen to stuff from the 70's and 80's.  I'm real into post-punk and glam rock and ska and electronica and stuff like that.  You probably really should click on that link.  Some bands I like, though:  Joy Division, David Bowie, The Clash, The Fall, Wire, Bauhaus, Public Image Ltd., The Cure, Richard Hell, Gang of Four, Televsion, Buzzcocks, Iggy Pop, The Vibrators, T. Rex, Sex Pistols, Dead Kennedys, Tricky, Tiga, Violent Femmes, Serge Gainsbourg, The Specials, Psychotica, Glampire, LCD Soundsystem, etc (not in that order).  If we have simliar taste in music, I do like to talk about it quite a bit.

What would you like to send/receive?:  Emails, IMs (I can be pretty slow to reply and boring, but if that's your thing...), mix CDs/mixtapes (when I get a good cassette player/boombox-type thing), snail mail... If you live outside of the US, though, I'm probably not sending you any packages.  I'm lazy/cheap.  And my handwriting's hard to read, so I prefer to type letters on one of my typewriters.  But really, that's subjective...

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?:  Anyone who's willing to put in the effort.  :P

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?:  Anywhere!  I'm really interested in Canada and the UK, so.... yeah.  But anywhere's great!  :D  (I only speak English, though.  My French is really too pitiful to carry on a conversation.)

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?:  Uh... food.

What would be in your dream letter or package?:
  Art/writing.  You know, something created.  Handmade things and all that cal.  I get attached to weird little things like erasers and office supplies, too, so that could work.  XD

Anything else you'd like to add?:
  I'm pretty slow to reply sometimes.  Slow as in like, 10 days.  So, sometimes I might need a little nudge to get going.

Picture:
  All of my pictures suck/are a couple years old.  (But if you do a little cyberstalking, you're bound to come across some.)

I'm Zora Hurst, but you can call me Zoe.

I'm nearly sixteen.
I live in Iowa City, Iowa--my mum works at the universit ywhich is famous for writer's workshops and liberalism.

I'm a mystery... Attracted to both genders and I fancy myself a bit of a cross-dresser, though, being a teenage girl, it come off as a bit rock grunge.

I read a lot, but music is my calling. I play the bassoon, the violin, the piano and the string bass. I fence, foil-style... I'm a music whore.
Jonathan Safran Foer is an amazing writer, I've read all of his works, a well as most of Tolkein, Vonnegut, Bierce, Zola and Saki.

I adore Rupert Grint; Driving Lessons is always a favourite, I'm a sucker for Adam Sander and Will Ferrel films--I'm also a superhero junkie, mad about Spiderman and Teen Titans, Batman: The Dark Knight was sinfully deligtful. Inception gave me chills.

LA ROUX! FLORENCE + THE MACHINE! AQUALUNG! MUTEMATH! THE DOORS! MINUS THE BEAR! QUEEN! TROUBLE OVER TOKYO! MICHAEL RABINOWITZ!

I'm willing to send stories, letters, music recommendations and (probably poor, as will be reckless) advice.

Willing to recieve anything from anyone.

I read/write english (of course) a bit of French also-- I'm not fluent but I'm not completely useless.

No pictures unless I ask, I'm not willing to part with mine easily either, so it may come off frigid, but I'm trying to ease the pressure.

Just intoduce yourself, tel me something strange; the color of your socks, how you like your eggs, a pair of shoes  you wold kill for... Anything, really

Warning: I've a horribly religious mum, so if you don't get  response as quick as you'd like, just know I'm finding a way to get around the constant hounding.

Am off to celbrate the greatest of weekends: Labor Day,

Zora Hurst
