A bit about me in a generic sense:
I'm young and foolish but striving for maturity, though I'm told that sometimes one is simply doomed to act like an idiot until one outgrows it. I'm geeky, gleefully idiosyncratic, and prone to Having Opinions.
I use LJ and dreamwidth primarily as a means of participating in journal-based fandom- to comment non-anonymously, to join fannish communities, and to keep track of my favorites. I don't often post things to my own journals, but when I do, they're usually random musings on whatever I happen to be pondering, links to things which have piqued my interest (ooh, shiny!), or occasionally whining/bitching/venting my spleen- there's nothing like trying to rationally explain one's petty drama to a hypothetical audience of relative strangers to put it in perspective. Very occasionally, I feel compelled to get up on the proverbial soapbox and pontificate for a while- better here than on a streetcorner downtown.
I only friend people with whom I've had a modicum of intelligent conversation*, either on- or off-line. If I friend you, it means that I like you, and I'm okay with you accessing my contact info and friendslocked posts. If you want to friend me, you're welcome to; I won't auto-friendback, but I will interpret it as an invitation to get to know you a little better.
I'm not snobby. I don't bite. I've had all my shots. I'm just a little shy about handing around my contact info and things. Pseudonymity is a Good Thing.
*for internet/fannish values of intelligent conversation- a couple of comments back and forth, containing actual words which convey ideas of actual substance, is plenty.
