Movies that you're looking forward to this summer: I want to see Mad Max, though that's already out. Not sure what else, I'm a bit out of touch with movies anymore.
Books that are on your summer reading list: Go Set a Watchman, and I'm trying to decide on a few things I want to re-read.

Are you traveling this summer? If so, where?: Visiting family.

What type of friend are you?
What type of things do you post in your journal?: talk about social media, fandom things, musings on writing and literature, make social commentary (outside of the internet), among other things. I've been getting nostalgic lately, too, so expat 90's things. I also sometimes get into RL stuff.

What's your friending policy?: I've never understood this question. I WILL say that I'm looking for people with common interests, as well as those who enjoy a good conversation.

Anything else we should know about your journal?:

The random
Name three random facts about yourself:
- I sometimes dance or sing to the music in stores if no one's watching. I think it's a crime that it isn't socially acceptable.
- I used to be afraid of the Energizer Bunny. I still say something's wrong with that thing.
- I think pity is just as bad as apathy, and in a way it's an inversion of it, because you're using someone else's problems to make yourself feel better. Gross.

What are your hobbies?: Reading, writing, indie films, history, art galleries.

3. I'm very clumsy & accident prone. I'm always falling down! I've broken my right wrist 7 times. Two summers ago I tore so much skin from my elbow I nearly had to have surgery to repair the tear. I currently have two black & blue toes. I'm a mess lol.
