This Journal Is Now Friends Only.  


Finally made the switch! With all the recent goings-on that have been happening at teh el-jay, I figured I would be a little safer this way. And the idea of random people reading my posts who weren't on my flist was starting to get to me.

But if you happen to stumble across my name, and see things in my userinfo that you think we might have in common, just leave a comment, and I will probably friend you back!

ETA: Well, since it's another year and all (woot 2010!) I decided to go back and read this, and things have changed somewhat, so it's been updated to reflect that!

1. I am a fangirl, and am not ashamed to admit it! I squee over just about anything, from Faramir to Snape to Chopin. My main fandoms are Harry Potter, Merlin, Lord of the Rings, and 24, though I am interested in others that I simply don't have time to write for. I'm much more a fan of gen and het than slash, but I don't bash characters and pairings.

2. I am a fierce Democrat, and while I don't make political posts often, I can be quite opinionated, so if this kind of thing easily offends you, you might want to stay away. Although I haven't made political posts in quite a while--graduate school has forced me to cut back on the amount of time I used to spend reading news, so unless it's important enough to warrant a headline on Yahoo!news or CNN--or unless I catch an episode of the Colbert Report, I probably haven't heard about it. Sad, I know...

3. I graduated college in the spring, and am now a first year Masters student in Piano Performance at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I have an awesome piano professor, and have fallen in love with small-city life. Chances are I will be staying there for a while after I graduate!

4. I am very friendly and open to meeting people of all kinds, so please don't be shy! If you'd like to add me but we've never talked, I love making new friends as much as the next person, so I will most likely add you back, even if we don't have that much in common! I love meeting people who have different interests too =)

Hello! I found your name through fanfic.net (I'm Voldie on Varsity Track over there) and ended up at your LJ. We're both nerds, juniors at university, and avid Faramir/Eowyn fans, it seems. Add back? :)

I just stumbled across the first chapter of Walk No More in Shadow. I'm wondering if there are more chapters to this story and if so how I can access them.

Thank you!

Hey there, I'm glad to still be on your f-list! Thanks for commenting on Rosie's pictures - isn't she absolutely too cute for words??? I can't wait to have her in my arms to snuggle and cuddle. I've been doing very well, thanks, and I just can't WAIT to get my Rosie. More details on Aspen, please!!!

Hi! I just read about you in your profile and your decision to be a friends only journal.

I think we'd have some things to talk about, so... friend me?
NotThatGirlalexajohnson on September 16th, 2008 03:02 pm (UTC)

of course, i would love to friend you, and i look forward to getting to know you!

just out of curiosity, how did you find me? :)
marissa: pic#74760478abitofadork7 on September 16th, 2008 07:23 pm (UTC)
Okay, awesome!

I was looking through my friend's profile- I forget who- but it lead to another that lead to yours.
Partly: Smilepartly on January 14th, 2009 09:02 pm (UTC)

I'm here via the 24 Frineding Meme. *waves* Just wanted to let you know why I friened you and where I came from.

My Lj is not very busy, mostly fandom and some real life. I generally don't talk politics, but don't mind if people do.
NotThatGirl: never surrenderalexajohnson on January 14th, 2009 10:56 pm (UTC)

*waves back*

yay 24!
i'm looking forward to getting to know you! :DDD
elkebabyelkebaby on February 15th, 2009 02:22 am (UTC)
well, yours is one of the best "friends only" posts I've read--you get right to the point & are friendly. :) I would love to be friends, and in reply to your post I give you:

1) I too am a fan girl--started with Harry Potter, moved into QAF, and now I'm mainly Stargate Atlantis...but I really love it all, especially the well written stuff.
2) I am a democrat, and I enjoy reading political posts, even the ones I don't agree with.
3) I am no longer in college--sadly without degree still (maybe one day I'll go back, but I won't hold my breath)...long and boring story as to why I didn't finish, but basically I got bored with it, then very ill, and am trying to pay back medical fees (which probably will never happen, but we'll see...) {There! You've gotten my sob story, we can totally be bff, right?) :P
4) While friendly, I tend to be a lurker, but I do try to comment when I enjoy a post/story/rant...

**giggle** I can't believe I typed all this out...my gosh!
NotThatGirlalexajohnson on April 13th, 2009 03:23 pm (UTC)

wow, i'm so sorry it's taken me so long to respond!

but i'd love to friend you back!

welcome to the insanity that is my world :D

Hi! I'm Liz! I saw your comment on a 24 friending meme. I love Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and 24 as well! We also share a friend (Stella - simplyobsessed). Add me back?
