::waves to new friends::

::waves to the world::
I think I missed my calling as a pageant queen sitting upon a float in a parade.
Anyway, I'm having much fun with allzugern
's friending meme
and making new friends along the way. For this reason, I shall share some info about me.
I've done a list of random facts
before, so I'll build from there. If you're really interested in knowing all you can about me without knowing anything at all, well, click on that link.Moving on...
My stances on the following:Defriending/Friending:
No one ever needs my permission to either friend or defriend. No one is obligated to friend me because I friend them. I friend people that I find interesting and/or enjoy their fandom creations. I also never want anyone to be afraid to defriend me either. People's interests diverge, life goes on, whatever - no need to explain yourself to me here. I also don't cut people from my friends list for not commenting enough or any of that stuff. No worries. Do whatever you need to and I will understand (unless you're like a handful of people that I'm very close to off livejournal too, then i'd probably be saddened if you dropped me ::eyes hollyhearth
::)Wank, Drama, and what that means for my journal:
Based off the above, rarely if ever do I defriend someone. And though I've never been put in this position as of yet (because I seem to play it smart and pick the cool, mellow folk to befriend), I want to make this clear: I don't tolerate the drama and wank and basically ripping apart of other people (that are not celebrities deserving of mocking - for that is a different thing) in a public forum. I outgrew any interest in that sort of crap when I was in junior high. I don't expect everyone to get along, but I expect people to respect each other and just...you have a problem with someone handle it with that someone...in private...without dragging all of livejournal and the internet into it. Part of the reason I manage to avoid wank and such is because I just move on. Maybe that's harsh, but that's what it is.
And yeah, that's basically the only thing you could do that would make me suddenly be all, "argh...I cannot bear to have this person on my list ever again!"
I must admit that there is always a good chance that I won't even know if you caused problems unless it's freaking HUGE. Because I seem to miss almost all the wank out there. I live in my own little world and apparently miss all the fighting/wank/drama in fandom. So yeah. I'm always the girl three weeks later going "what big crack happened?"Filters:
I have two filters. One that's just my friends list minus communities and one that's people who wanted to read my original novel excerpts as it progressed. If you want to be added to that, you can, but I haven't really posted anything lately. So yeah, I read my friends list sans filters, so at some point I'll have to overcome my compulsion to keep adding people - but y'all are too damn interesting. I can't help myself.Comments:
Comment as much or as little as you want. I do try to comment on my friends list - some more than others based on whatever is being posted - and I'm working on getting better at leaving feedback for any story that I enjoy. Sometimes I forget. Also, please feel free to disagree with me on things, provide constructive criticism, whatever so long as you do it in a polite manner. ( More all about me...in list form... )
I think that about sums up how I work, if such a thing is possible. I am "a crazy nut" as the six-year-old in my life is prone to tell me. I am also "way too obsessed with two guys making out" according to the boy in my life.
Oh, my main rule: have fun! Enjoy yourself! Embrace my insanity!
Otherwise, what the heck you doing here?
Ciao amigas! I'll be borrowing estrella30
's pimp hat and cane in a few to do a post of some links and such, but otherwise, have a good day!
