I've been on LJ more than ten years now, and my journal has evolved in that time. I used to write mostly about games I've played (FFX, FFXI, WoW), then I expanded into role playing/creative writing/fanfic, and now I post more about real life things and only now and then dabble back into older themes.
I'm a middle-aged white woman, a failing-but-never-giving-up cook, in a seemingly never-ending battle with my weight, and by profession a technical writer/editor.
I unofficially take part in 50bookchallenge (to read 50 books a year), but because of my lack of free time, I set my goal to 25 books per year instead.
I take great joy in posting wacky/strange/WTF?! images, sometimes sexual but never gory. They're always linked or behind a cut (never displayed outright) and I always use NWS warnings -- I read LJ at work and I know how important it is to have a work safe friends list.
It's a strange feeling to try to describe yourself to others; I haven't made a post like this before. I hope I'm succeeding at both fairly representing myself and making myself not seem like the most boring person on the planet! :)
