I really used to love LJ before the big fade-out some 7-8 years ago and I've missed it a lot as it was. Connecting with people based on 1) text and 2) interests, having interesting discussions with people I've never met, and being able to easily determine which content to show to which group of people – that was awesome. I strongly hope DW is going to be as active as LJ once was. For the past several years I've been using my LJ account as a diary, but looking forward to using my DW account as a tool to interact with people.

Name: Raino

Age: 37

Location: Northern Europe

Gender: Female

Languages: I'm mostly writing in English. Occasionally a vent in Finnish.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Speculative and prone to obsessing about various topics from vintage romance to moon landings to antique lace machines to 9th century squatters in Tikal. Very much into science fiction. Monogamously married mom who daily interacts with others in the exact same life situation to the point of suffocating of similarity, so very interested in conversing with people who've made different life choices. Environmentally concerned and striving to make a positive impact on the world.

I mostly post about: Aesthetic observations. Far-fetched theories on cultural things. Trying to understand myself or other people. Particular obsession of the moment.

I rarely post about: stuff I could put on Facebook ie something that's readily connected to my day-to-day life.

My last three posts were about: Enjoyable feeling of being a foreigner during a recent trip, some bitching about other people's parenting (this is the first and hopefully last time to do that, so please don't worry it's my main interest!) and some thoughts about aesthetics of smoking.

How often do you post?: irregularly, a couple of times a month.

How about commenting?: Yeah sure! I've got so much pent-up commenting energy!

Hey, you seem interesting (I mean I don't know much about lace but it's one of those things like embroidery where some day I will make the time to learn) . Add?

9th c Tikal squatters sound fascinating

Thanks for taking the chance to post here.

What a post-apocalyptic novel that would be....

Highly creepy, and wonderful, images this brings to ind.

Can you point me to a book about this topic?

From: [personal profile] jesse_the_k
Oh, that's doubly creepy!

So when you write your book about them you'll have the market to yourself.

Sounds like we've made very different life choices (my post if you're curious), although Tikal caught my eye. XD

There does seem to be a lack of Mayan historical fiction in the world, or else I've just not looked in the right places. I may have to figure out where in my day I can stuff time for research for NaNo. XD

I'd love to be friends! I'm a work-at-home bird mother (parrots) and I own my own business. I'm environmentally conscious and love to garden :)

Garden space is nice for the occasional garden urges! It sounds like a happy medium!

I'm glad we met! I hope you're having a great week!

Cool. I've been meaning to do a "great SFnal AUs in fanfic" rec list, and now you've given me the perfect nudge.

I enjoyed reading a bit about your experience in Japan. I've also been and can relate to some of those feelings. It really is such a different place. I loved it and hope to go back someday :)

I'm definitely interested in adding you, if you don't mind?

Great! Added :)

That's awesome! My husband and I went when we were living in China so it wasn't so bad to fly from there but definitely really far from where we live now.
