Awww, this seems fun! :)

[02] Age: 20-something. xD
[03] Location: Germany ♥
[04] Occupation: Photographer & Novelist

About Me
[05] What are your interests & hobbies?:
Interests There's so much! Photography. Writing. Books. Nature. My dogs & pets.

Hobbies I write. I read. I take photos. I bake. I cook. I sew. I knit. I crochet. I quilt. I paint. I draw. I doodle. I garden. I decorate. I walk through the woods. I play with the dogs, bunnies and guinea pigs. I blog.

[06] What are you passionate about? About life in general. ♥
[07] What's the current song your listening to?: Jacks Mannequin's newest song, which I adore.
[08] What are your favorite:
Movies Hocus Pocus. Horror movies in general. Bridget Jones. Philadelphia.

Books It would take me hours to list them all. I'm one of the biggest bookworms you will ever meet. xD

Tv Shows Dexter. ♥ Golden Girls (I grew up watching and loving this show & I still watch the DVD's!) Law & Order (all of them). Vampire Diaries.

[09] My role model: My mom is my role model. She's always been an incredible person and I always looked up to her. She taught me everything I know about life and people. She gave her all to raise me and my sister and I'll be forever thankful. I know she's up there in heaven, watching over me. I miss you so much, mom.

[10] How would others describe you?: Quiet, yet talkactive once I get to know someone. :) Very nice, polite and honest.

About the journal
[11] How would you describe your journal? What do you write about?: Everything. I vent and share everything about my life and the people in it. Life has been super hard for me the last 12 months, because my mom passed away in June 2010 so I talk aout that quite a bit. I post lots of photos, too.

[12] Anything special your looking for in a friend?: Honesty. That's all that really matters to me.
[13] What turns you ON or OFF about somebodies entries? Meme's. There's nothing wrong about meme's but it's a big bummer when all people do is post meme's. I also don't really care about reading nothing but party, alcohol/drug related things. I'm against alcohol and drugs.
[14] Is there an age limit or any other else specific before friending you?: People should be at least 20 I think. I'm very mature and my posts show that, too. SO I guess younger people could get quite bored with me. xD

I'm looking for friends, not just another random person on my flist. I want to get to know everyone the best way possible. I have no problem with removing someone from my list when I get the feeling they just added me to up their flist number.

Etc. Etc. Etc.

About Me
[05] What are your interests & hobbies?:
Interests Arts, fashion, cosmetics (specially make up :)), books, musics and, well, politics. I live in a third world country with a lot of corruption and major problems, so I can't help but have this interest because it's so revolting :(

[06] What are you passionate about? Traveling <3

The Basics
[01] Name: Adrienne
[02] Age: 28 (I love shocking people with that number given I'm often mistaken for years younger.

Hobbies Playing the Grand Theft Auto Trilogy over and over, dying my hair bright colors, writing, yoga.

[06] What are you passionate about? Advocacy for understanding of Introverted persons like myself. I want the extroverted world to understand that introverts are not shy, rude, cold, living within a shell, or even boring. I'm tired of being treated like I have a social disease because I choose to speak when I feel like I have something to say. It's almost worse when I do say something, or if I *God forbid* swear or make a witty or snide remark, how SHOCKED people are that I showed any semblance of a personality.
[07] What's the current song/tv show your listening to?: )
[08] What are your favorite:
Movies If you take nothing else from this list PLEASE take time to watch EAGLE VS SHARK! If you hated Napoleon Dynamite, you'll love it. If you loved Napoleon Dynamite, you'll love it even more because it's essentially a Dynamite-esque film set in New Zealand with a female protagonist and a superior script and great music. I also dig Run Lola Run, Better Luck Tomorrow, The Shrek films *never saw the fourth*, Once Were Warriors...

Books I've found it difficult to get into books lately, not that I don't enjoy reading. However, I really love short stories/reading short story anthologies. One of my favorite authors is Banana Yoshimoto.

Tv Shows I LOVE the new Looney Toons show on Cartoon Network. Yes, new! They're written with the same style of humor as Animaniacs (witty, subversive.) Full House, Fresh Prince, What Not to Wear, Travel Channel. The older I get the more I find myself liking dumb MTV shit like Viva La Bam or The Wild Boys. I also got really into Miami Vice after playing GTA: Vice City.

Music artists Incubus, Björk, 80's artists, Paramore, Deftones, Tool, Electronic music artists.
[09] What is your cat's name?: Tubbs, named after Officer Ricardo "Rico" Tubbs of Miami Vice.
[10] How would others describe you?: Shy (which I hate). Cute (which I hate even more but stating such only makes people say that makes me even cuter.) Funny. And I've been told twice recently by two older co-workers that I seem "artistic", lol.

About the journal
[11] How would you describe your journal? What do you write about?: I try to be funny as I write about my observations on life to varying degrees of success. I've been trying to make it interesting by adding more photos and generally trying to make my life look more interesting than it is, lol.
[12] Anything special your looking for in a friend?:Someone with unique hobbies/interests/lifestyle. A similar sense of humor is always a plus. It's also nice when people update frequently (which I've been trying to do lately.). I also like being nosey so I like journals filled with photos :D
[13] What turns you ON or OFF about somebodies entries? I like people who post in a way that shows they are in love with life and have a way of describing everyday things in fascinating ways.
[14] Is there an age limit or any other else specific before friending you?: Not really. I don't act my age myself, so...

Etc. Etc. Etc.
[15] Post something funny here or any other info {Jokes, gif}: A bear and a rabbit are taking a shit in the woods. The bear asks the rabbit, "do you have a problem with shit sticking to your fur?" The rabbit replied, "no." So the bear pics up the rabbit and wipes his ass with him.
