Back to School Friending Meme Extraordinaire!

I have always wanted to do a friending meme in my journal! Why? Because friending memes are super cool, and I am not gonna lie, every time somebody posts one, I think, "Damn, I should have done that."

So I am doing it now! The entry is public, so please, share!

Copy and paste this into a comment and let your colors show! *

* We here at the [livejournal.com profile] rhetoricians friendstravaganza experience make no guarantees regarding the caliber or quality of potential friend candidates, only that she has some awesome friends and wants to share them and make some new ones!

Of course, for this to work, it has to be shared! Here is a link to the HTML code for the sharing portion of our fair meme!

ETA: The HTML code should link back to this entry now! I am a huge derp. Please post away! (there might be a spare "div" in there but if you just delete it it'll be A-OK).

Name (or what you go by on LJ): H (I use my real name in my journal)
Age: 25
What zodiac sign are you? Do you put much stock in that sort of thing?: Capricorn. Yep, I think there's got to be something to it; too many coincidences not to be!
Are you in any of the Harry Potter landcomms here on LJ? (HiH, H_E, etc)? What house? Ravenclaw @ both HiH and H-E.
Location: Upstate New York, but I'm moving back to Atlanta in 2012. I just can't with this cold.
Job/year in school: Senior. I'm sooo ready to be done!
Favorites lightning round!
Interests: I changed this question because I'm terrible at movies. I always see them way after the come to DvD and then I never remember seeing them. So my favorite interests instead: Birds! Owls and magpies especially. And cats! Yoga, fitness, self-improvement; astrology, esoterica, folklore, superstition; logic, physics, trivia, etymology; reading, writing, daydreaming, creating; livejournal, etsy.
Books: Let me link you to my Goodreads (http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/1284151-h?ref=header). There are too many to list. Obviously I love Harry Potter, but I'm also into reading a lot of historical non-fictions, other non-fiction, ASoI&F, etc.
Video games: I play Wow (not as much as I used to). It doesn't really crop up in my posts, but I'll catch your WoW references and lol at them with you if you post about it.
TV shows: Grey's Anatomy, QI, Community, GoT, Big Love (I know, I know); I used to watch True Blood but it's recently gotten too weird even for me. I also watch the news! (And Rachel Maddow)
On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being "what the fuck is a fandom?" and 10 being "I love so many fandoms!" how much is your LJ an expression of your love for fandoms?: 5. I don't post fanfiction, but I do woe about not getting into Pottermore yet. (WHERE is my letter?!) I generally keep most of my fandom stuff to fandom-related communities and not my journal, but when I do post things to my journal, it's generally filtered.
If money was no object what job would you have?: I would be an artist, and paint all day (oil) then I would be a novelist at night. I would love to be published, and spend at least one week on the NY Times Bestseller list (even if I was near the bottom). I know everyone says they want to be a writer. (Anyone doing NaNo? Always looking for new NaNo friends!)
What does the subject matter of most of your LJ entries seem to focus on? (eg: real life, fandom stuff, writing, graphics, etc): real life, humorous things that happen, my cats, the bf, college, writing thoughts, my self-improvement scheme, fitness, ranting, and some politics/activism/fandom/religion (of which you can choose to be filtered out of). I try to keep things interesting and I don't post huge images outside of cuts or walls of text at all. :D
What are you looking for in a new friend? Do you care about how often people comment?: I do care, to an extent. I look for people that I can get to know and who will be true friends. If we don't interact through reading each other's posts and commenting on them, I don't see how we can develop that friendship, and I don't want a bunch of people on my friendslist just to boost my numbers. Mostly, I'm just looking for people who will be interested in what I post about, because I will do my best to be interested in your posts. If this sounds like you, comment and let's see what we have in common :D
Please close your comment with an awesome gif or funny picture.

Don't be this fish! Be frenz!

One of my friends suggested I look at your meme, because she thought we'd get a long pretty well. I'm in Ravenclaw @hih to :) and I use to play WoW all the time! I just don't have time for it right now while at school. It makes me cry inside.

Want to be friends?

P.S. I LOVE YOUR FISH! I'll catch him for you! Then we put him in a tank and he'll never get away again! ;)

I love historical books! What's your favorite century? I think I like all the centuries, but I love the Regency period the best. Mind if I friend you?

I don't think I have a favorite century, but I definitely love the medieval era, especially plague times.

Of course!

Can we be friends? I am a huge history nerd, love cats, and just started playing WOW a few weeks ago, but I really enjoy it! I also like oil painting, sadly haven't done any lately, though.
