New friends wanted
Birthday: September 11
Location: Nashville, TN
E-mail: helloabsalom [at] gmail [dot] com
Religion: I'm a seeker
Interests: reading, writing, crafting, birds, crystal healing, tarot, sci-fi of all kinds, exploring my spirituality, going to live concerts, collecting vinyl records and comic books, playing video games, medieval history, renaissance fairs, and spending time with my wonderful fiance and adorable dogs
Music: I love all kinds of music. Here are some of my favorites: Bjork, Pokey La Farge, The Kills, any Jack White related projects, The Flaming Lips, Deftones, Karen Elson, Daft Punk, Pink Floyd, Seasick Steve, and sooooo many more.
Movies: Star Trek movies (old and new), Star Wars, Batman films (minus the terrible Batman Forever and Batman and Robin), Harry Potter films, Rushmore, The Royal Tennenbaums, Christopher Guest's films (Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, A Mighty Wind, etc.), Drop Dead Fred, and The Wall movie are just some of my favorites.
Books: Anything by Neil Gaiman and books by Alison Weir. I also really love the Harry Potter books, Ender's Game, and Star Trek novels.
TV: We watch a lot of t.v in this house. We love The Walking Dead, Star Trek reruns, Family Guy, Friends, Fringe, Modern Family, Arrested Development, and my favorite show of the moment -- Adventure Time!
Handwrite/Typing: I typically hand write all of my letters. I guess I prefer that, but if you'd rather type that's fine too. I know all too well what sore hands feel like! Maybe you can just write me a tiny little handwritten note on your typed letter? ;) Yay compromise!
Length of Letters: I have verbal diarrhea most of the time so my letters can get on the long side! As such, I'd prefer a pal that wants to write a lot as well so I'm not doing all the "talking." I find that I'm regularly telling myself to stop, so my letters aren't painfully long. But they're definitely not one pagers. I'd say somewhere in the range of 5-15 pages depending on my mood.
Sending Gifts: Maybe as the friendship progresses we can swap crafts or small gifts.
Time till Response: I try to be as speedy as possible, but I work about 45 hours ever week so it may take me until the weekend to get to it.
Age of Penpal: 25-40
Where Do You Want Them To Be From?: Anywhere! You can find friends in any part of the world.
How Long Have You Been Penpaling?: For over a decade
How Many Do You Want?: I guess as many who are interested in writing to me.
What Are You Looking For In a Penpal?: I really want someone who can relate to me and who's interested in what I have to say. My letters can be a little stream of consciousness so I hope I can find someone who doesn't mind if I'm a little scattered from time to time. It'd be neat to find someone I can talk to about my spiritual quest as I explore different things. I want someone who's open minded and not judgmental. :)
Please feel free to message via LJ, leave a comment or send an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Current Mood: hopeful

Looking for new pen pals :)
It seems I've lost about a third of my pen pals during this past year or so and because of that I am looking for a few new pen pals.-Name:
28 (but I'll turn 29 this month. *yay*)-Location:
Student at the university of Southern Denmark. Religion (religion history) is my major and history is my minor. I am currently working on my M. A. thesis which is a mix between folklore, religion, history and social science, i guess.-Main interests:
penpalling, gardening, living a low-impact life (though i don't want to go extreme with this), learning (about) languages, history, religion, reading books, crafting (knitting, crocheting, polymer clay, collages, decorating notebooks/boxes/other items.... etc), stamp collecting and a lot of other things... :)-What genres of music are you into?
My fav genres are black metal, death metal, folk/viking metal but my fav bands are the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, the Doors, Deep Purple... I also listen to some punk, pop, electronic music and rock.-Favorite books:
I love all i've ever read from the Danish author Kenneth Bøgh Andersen (he writes fantasy and horror stories), but I also really like the Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan (some day after i've graduated from the uni, i will finally find the time to read the complete series!) and the Spook's Books by Joseph Delaney. Besides fantasy i prefer to read
non-fiction books. I am currently reading a book about fossil finds in Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire but have also just recently read books about mindfullness, living green, slavery, horror comedy movies and... i guess this indicates that when it comes to non-fiction I am open to almost all themes. LOL.
I am currently really really interested in pre-Christian Scandinavia, Scandinavian folklore and green living-Favorite movies:
The two all-time fav movies are "Nosferatu" and "Freaks". I do like b/w movies a lot (especially the horror-ones) but i like a lot of genres. I like horror movies a lot (though I've had this accidental ability to avoid some of the VERY famous ones like "nightmare on elm street" and "friday the 13th"), i also love a good (well... bad. LOL) action movie, comedies (in the "genre" where "Ace Ventura" and "Kung Pow" belong), some fantasy movies, lots of thrillers and... recently i've found a liking of old war-movies.-Describe your ideal penpal:
My ideal penpal should be willing to write long letters (i personally write letters that usually are 10-25 pages long), he/she must write handwritten letters (i always write by hand), he/she must be ok with the fact that i sometimes am a bit late (though never more than about 4 months) with my letters as sometimes other things in my life are more important than writing letters (this of course also means that i am perfectly fine with my pals being a little late with letters from time to time, too), we must share at least some interests ( i find it really hard to write with people i have nothing in common with) and he/she must be ok with the fact that i can sometimes be very direct and honest in my letters (i've had some bad experinces with this before so i need to make this clear. I never ask about something or make a comment just to hurt my pal.... i do it because i am interested in the answer and i am interested in getting to know my pal better). Oh, and I need my new pen pal to be ok with the fact that i rarely write questions in my letters, so just comment on whatever you want to in my letters :D
I think this is the main things in an ideal pen pal for me. This also hopefully give my new pen pals an idea about what "kind" of pen pal I am. :)-What age do you want them to be?
I'd prefer them to be about 27-32. If you're older/younger than this and think that we could really get a good friendship still, please convince me to be your new pen pal ;)-What sex do you want them to be?
Either-What country do you want them to be from?
Anywhere, really. :)

penpals and traveling journal
Right now I am really only looking for email/livejournal pals until I can find a job. I am unemployed/SAHM. I been doing a little babysitting neighbors kids for a little extra cash. That's only on occasion like when they can't find anyone else to baby sit they will pay me. Anyways, I am 28 years old and into: paranormal, hautings, vampires, werewolves, faeries, dragons, writing, hiking, camping, etc.
I plan to start my version of a "Traveling Journal". If you want to join then email me (email@example.com) and let me know and I can give you my address. In my version of the Traveling Journal I am not going to be sending a notebook for you to do what you want with. Instead, take an 8.5 x 11 printer paper and decorate it up (both sides) with something about your area. (example: postcard, explain postcard if possible, movie theater ticket, newspaper clipping, pictures you have taken of the area, etc. Do a little explaining if possible.). Use stuff that explains your area and it's heritage, etc. tell me how many people live there… birth to death ratio… or whatever. I think you get the point. I plan to post all this to my livejournal page.
Please be sure to write your first name (at least) and where you are from (state, town, country).

Seeking Friends, Could One Be You?
Music: Linkin Park, Sarah Brightman, Breaking Benjamin, 30 Seconds to Mars, Hans Zimmer, Journey, Zen Meditation Music, Avril Lavigne, Amy Lee, Demi Lovato, Annie Lennox, Sarah McLachlan, Maroon 5.
Books/Writers: V.C Andrews, Anne Rice, the Batman Files, Susan Kay's Phantom, the Silver Metal Lover, J.R.R Tolkien.
Movies: the Last Unicorn, Batman Beings, Dark Knight Rises, the Avengers,1776,Classic Horror Films,/Horror Movies, B Movies, The Conspirator, 90 Disney Movies, Legend, Labyrinth, Jumanji, Jurassic Park, Clue: the Movie, the Princess Bride, the Blues Brothers 2000, the Mothman Prophecies.
T.V Shows: Batman the Animated Series, the Twilight Zone, Fear Factor, Gargoyles, Law and Order Franchise Series, the X-Files, the Outer Limits.
First of all. This is a new journal but I am not new to LJ.com. I am 30 years old. Talkative , open and, free spirited. I am very sensitive and I care a lot about my friends. Including my online friends. I take my online life as seriously as my offline life. I like to help my friends and be there for them. So if you are not looking for someone who is a little over bearing at times, then I'm not the right person for you. I am looking for long time companionship , friends. I enjoy chatting and long emails. I tend to write a person several times a day. I can sometimes message a person up to fifty times a day. I know that sounds crazy but I do and I'm not sure if I can really help myself, if I get "stuck on you", or attached to you. I just really like to talk and try to be there for my friends. Just be aware that I can be a lot though for most people. I do have some health problems, along with issues with paranoia and stress related health problems. Nothing that can't be worked out though with understanding and compassion though.
I am looking for someone who just wants friends and who can still put time in an online relationship like they do with their offline life. I know that's asking a lot and for most people online life is like a second hobby for them. For me it's one of the few ways I can really socialize with people though. I am really not that picky, so long as we can work through issues and that sort of thing. I just want friends but good friends and friends who won't just leave me because we are having problems.

A tad existential melancholy
E-mail: skygazerlily at yahoo dot com
Religion: Here's where things get tricky-- well for me at least-- I don't really believe per se in anything, I consider myself an Agnostic Nihilist (nihilist in the existential sense)... really part of me actually wants to believe in things. I sometimes read books on angels, psychic abilities, I'll often look into the meaning of something that could be a symbol. I'm into the tarot, fortune telling cards (etc), the paranormal. However, I am on the fence for it all. An ex-friend of mine a long time ago, we discussed these things... how there is a difference between what we want to believe is true (or what we wish was true) and what we believe to be true *sigh*... so who knows about me... and religion or even spirituality. I believe in possibilities! I am into Pagan/New age-y stuff sometimes as well, studied it for 6 years and it still has a place in my heart! I want to get into ghost hunting as well... so that says something, to gather evidence and not to "disprove" that ghosts exist.
Interests: abandoned buildings (I honestly really have no friends and this isn't something I'd do alone but I have an interest in exploring them), the paranormal, nature, piercings, vampires, quotations, and video games (Wii), listening to music, watching movies/TV on Netflix, chatting/texting, playing around like a child or with childrens toys (which at this age I still love), wandering around the woods near my house picking up trash (with rubber gloves mind you) -- seeing what I can find (I plan to get a metal detector) and I plan to make "faerie" houses to place into the woods when they're clean, not that I believe in them... seems like it'd be fun though. I can be a tad unusual. From the interests from this community-- also love faeries, pointed ears (I'm considering the surgery to make mine pointed or get some fake ones to wear for awhile), mermaids, dress up, rainbows (double, circle, etc)
Music: Within Temptation (insanely love and listen to way too much), Tapping the Vein, OTEP, The Birthday Massacre, In This Moment, Massive Attack, Conjure One (some songs), A Perfect Circle, Smashing Pumpkins, Flyleaf, Delerium (some songs), "One Moment More" by Mindy Smith, Dryer, Fever Ray, Robyn (new), Kerli
Movies: What Dreams May Come, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Silent Hill, Nightmare Before Christmas, Pan's Labyrinth, MirrorMask, Labyrinth, Legend, Interview with The Vampire, The Neverending Story, Ultraviolet, The Fifth Element, Underworld, The Fountain, The Invention of Lying, Wristcutters: A Love Story
Books: I love Francesca Block and pretty much all her novels. Spook Science Tackles the Afterlife, A Certain Slant of Light... I love reading non-fiction from the new age section, books on the paranormal, etc.
TV: used to be Ghost Adventures, Ghost Hunter, Paranormal Witness, The Dead Files, Bones, Criminal Minds, The Amazing World of Gumball.... but I don't watch TV anymore really just watch movies on Netflix but this gives you my taste in T

New Pen Pals
Location: New Britain, CTSingle. No kids. One dog.
Just because I have no kids or no man/woman (I am bisexual), I do not mind hearing about them, so feel free.
I would also like to say that I am incredibly open minded, and do not think someone hyper-religious would approve.
Additional note: If we were pen pals before, and I disappeared, please give me a chance. Know that my life had taken some major changes in 2010, and I am a new person, for better or worse, and would like to begin pen palling again.
Language: English only
Interests: knitting, cooking/baking, watching movies, reading, Netflix
Music: It would take forever to list everything in my mp3 player at the moment. I'm always looking for someone new...so feel free to send me a message that simply reads "check this band out"...but I will google any artist you mention and will give it a listen.
Movies: to list them all would take forever...PLAYING BY HEART, BROKEN HEARTS CLUB, BEST MEN----not THE BEST MAN...big difference, SWEETHEARTS, GIRL INTERRUPTED, GIRL, AMERICAN BEAUTY, AMERICAN PIE (the first one), HARRY POTTER (all of them), LIFE AS A HOUSE, MYSTIC RIVER, THE PRINCESS BRIDE, THE NEVER ENDING STORY, LABRYNTH, HOW TO MAKE AN AMERICAN QUILT, STEELE MAGNOLIAS, STELLA, PETER PAN, BEACHES, REALITY BITES, HIGH FIDELITY, CHASING AMY, JERSEY GIRL, DOGMA, HI FIDELITY, CATCH AND RELEASE, SHREK, LILO AND STITCH, RENT, AVATAR, THE LAST SONG, NICK AND NORAH'S INFINITE PLAYLIST, EASY A, GOING THE DISTANCE.
Books: : STIR-FRY, FACE AT THE EDGE OF THE WORLD, LOSING IT, THE FUCK-UP, THE HOTTEST STATE, I HOPE THEY SERVE BEER IN HELL, WORD FREAK, REMEMBERING BLUE, JEMIMA J , SUMMER SISTER, PINK SLIP, GOOD IN BED, LIFE IN THE FAT LANE, THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER, anything by Debbie Macomber---but especially the BLOSSOM STREET and CEDAR COVE series, an array of cheesy teen novels, anything by Nicholas Sparks, anything by Jane Green, anything by Arthur Nersisian (although it must be said that Nersisian is an amazing writer but an absolute douche in person), anything by Scott Westerfield, the TWLIGHT saga, the HARRY POTTER books (especially the fifth one). I tend to read about three or four books a week, although ths year it's a lot less. If you're interesed, at the moment I am reading Tucker Max's new book A**HOLES FINISH FIRST. So far, pretty classic Tucker Max.
TV: I don't watch TV, yet, at the same time, I am addicted to certain shows, most of which are no longer on the air anymore. Thank goodness, again, for Netflix. I just finished Season 1 of "Parenthood", which I loved...can't wait for Season 2 to end so it becomes available. "Drop Dead Diva" and "Gilmore Girls" are other favorites..."ER" (every season) is at my local library, and I keep saying that'll be my way of dealing with the snow if I don't find a new job before I get to watch it all. However, next on my list for TV shows is actually "Ugly Betty". If I do actually watch TV, it's usually stuff like "How I Met Your Mother", "Big Bang Theory"...and I am dying for the day when all the seasons of "Cold Case" become available on DVD.
Handwrite/Typing: I have to handwrite at the moment, as I don't have a printer, but I don't mind either...it actually takes me longer to handwrite mainly because I am recovering from a neuro disorder that makes writing hard.
Length of Letters: at least three pages, double sided
Sending Gifts: I am broke right now...which is why I can only have US pen pals. Therefore, I won't be sending much other then letters right now, but if we get to that point, it's all good.
Time till Response: at most a week
Age of Penpal: over 18 please
Male/Female: either is fine by me
Where Do You Want Them To Be From?: US only
How Long Have You Been Penpaling?: on and off since I was 8
How Many Do You Want?: 3, maybe 4...I don't know yet.
What Are You Looking For In a Penpal?: Someone who I can relate to...yes, it's very important to me that we have something, anything, in common. Be it crafting, reading, movies, string of bad relationships we can vent about, camping...anything. I just want someone to talk to, and who will talk back.

Current Mood: nostalgic
(i'm not sure that it's allowed to do this kind of post in this community but if it's not then i hope the moderator will delete it)
I made a new community that is about pen palling and snail mail and stuff like that. it's not a community about finding new pen pals or sell something snail mail-related. among other things we talk about problems we have with penpalling and we post pictures of things we want to swap (not sell) or newly received letters/packages that we are really excited about.
this far the community has only been up for about 12 hours so we only have very few entries and members still.

Name: Liana, or just Lilly Current Mood: hopeful
Birthday: June 28th
Location: East Coast, US of A
Religion: none really but I like studying Religions
Language: English, German (as my native one), started to learn Russian, but not fluent at all
Interests: Letters, Fantasy, Books, Crafting, Flowers, Internet, PC Games (mostly Fantasy based MMO's such as Aion)
Music: take a peek here: http://www.last.fm/user/Ashlaran
Movies: well, i mostly don't watch TV which includes movies, unless it's one that could really touch my heart. The last movie I watched was called "Stalker" by a Russian director, who also made the original Solaris-movie. I did enjoy Pi, The Perfume, Lost Highway,.. well mostly movies that are not Hollywood-based, often drama-ish but not in the classical "love/heartbreak" style.
Books: oooh Fantasy (just finished a book called "Beauty" which I can only recommend to read), Science Fiction, and then also books that give me some knowledge of the world (Psychology, History, Literature studies)
TV: like I said, I don't really watch TV but if i stumble upon something, it has to do with discoveries, often the BBC ones, since they are just amazing :D
Handwrite/Typing: I do handwrite since i have a ton of stationary lol
Length of Letters: Oh that depends on what i have to say, but I tend to write 2-3 pages minimum, depending of the size of the paper (and with 2-3 pages I do not mean little sheets of sanrio paper, I am talking about real stationary ^^)
Sending Gifts: That depends on what I am working on craftwise, but if there is something that I liek to share, I will send it to my friends.
Time till Response: the longest would be a week, but it depends if I travel or not, but if I travel, I normally bring writing stuff with me.
Age of Penpal: somewhere around my age would be nice, but of course I can't expect that, since I am not a person that thinks about age that much. It depends if you are mature, but also kind and funny. So the real question actually would be, what kind of people do I look for ;)
Male/Female: I tend to have female penpals, but I do like males as well. I might add, I am not looking for a Romance.
Where Do You Want Them To Be From?: anywhere, even avalon ;)
How Long Have You Been Penpaling?: oh since like I was 8 or 9.
How Many Do You Want?: just a few, maybe 2-3, maybe 5. I am not looking for quantity but rather quality
What Are You Looking For In a Penpal?: well as I mentioned earlier, I would love to find a mature friend, maybe someone around my age, but not a must. I would like to talk about books, crafts and philosophy besides daily things, so if you are interested in those topics, that would be great!
So, if this sounds good email me, I don't bite :)
