(Thank you to satya for originally posting this picture of two of her adorable cats)
I post when I can, sometimes I'll post every day for a week or more, other times I might post once every couple of weeks. I usually talk about my day-to-day life, my job - which I do not hate but don't particularly love, the men in my life (or lack thereof), music, friends, plans... you know, the usual kind of stuff.
I read my flist as often as I can - not often enough for my liking but what can you do - and comment fairly frequently, equally I appreciate comments in return.
I like to talk at length about issues I feel strongly about, but then, who doesn't?
I love good music. By that I mean rock and metal, classical, big band/swing. Some of the bands/artists I can't get enough of at the moment are Frank Sinatra/Dean Martin/The Rat Pack, Rammstein, Queens of the Stone Age, Deftones, Tool, Metallica, Led Zeppelin and last but not least Joy Division. I'm a bit obsessed with the latter recently after watching Control.
My favourite film is Good Will Hunting, but I'll watch anything featuring Penelope Cruz or Matt Damon, or anything that involves a bit of thought - I will never willingly sit down to anything featuring Jennifers Aniston or Lopez, Adam Sandler or Nicholas Cage.
I read as much as I can, my favourite writers are: Paulo Coelho, who has such a way with words that sometimes I want to cry; Stephen Fry and Ian McEwan. The last book I read was McEwan's Enduring Love, and my next challenge is to start - and finish - War and Peace, this year!
I've just turned 31 (well, 3 months ago).
I am single, although for the last year adn a bit I've had a thing for a friend in work, who also likes me (or did) but won't get involved in anything because we work together.... hence the (half-hearted) job search! More info on this/him lies within....
I have travelled a bit, and hope to travel some more before too long. My favourite place I've ever visited is Pakistan; the people are so friendly, so welcoming, can't do enough for you, and the country is beautiful. At the top of my list for next places to visit are Canada and North Korea (yes, you read that right!) bith of which I'm hoping to have visited by the end of 2017. Tibet is also very high on the list.
When I wrote this (updated today, Sunday 5th of June 2016) my ultimate goal was to "buy my own apartment and then get a cat, after that we'll see."
That was 2 years ago. I now have a cat! YAY! I don't own my flat but it's as good as - the type of tenancy I have means the flat is mine as long as I want it, and I will never have hefty repair bills like I would if I owned a property.
So, that's about it.... add me as a friend and read my journal and if you don't enjoy it I won't be offended if you decide to leave.
Good luck to you.
