Please talk to me here if you would like to be added to my friends list. I'd like to know a little about you before I add you (like what we have in common, perhaps)!

Some random facts about me:

1. LGBTI civil rights and gender equality are important to me.
2. I'm agnostic.
3. I love kitties! <3
4. I love art.
5. I'm childfree. Strongly pro-choice, also.
6. I'm interested in various books/games/anime/tv series (usually fantasy or sci fi or horror), ancient history, psychology/social sciences, and economics.
7. I am interested in ethics. Perhaps the closest thing to my way of thinking would be some form of hedonistic act utilitarianism (the most ethical action is the one that brings the most happiness, and the least suffering), but I'm also fond of elements of social justice theory (human rights) and virtue theory (if only a jerk would do X, don't do X).
8. I'm Myers Briggs type INTP.
9. I'm vegetarian for ethical reasons. (Most of my friends are not, though.)
10. I'd be a Slytherin in the Harry Potter world.
11. I'm not super political, but I'm Socialist.

You can probably figure out from that if we'd get along or not. For the most part, I don't bite! :P

So we have a mutual friend and I decided to click on you, as I am trying to (re)build a strong friend base here at Dreamwidth. I really appreciated the comment you left her, which is what prompted me to see about you.

What we have in common:
Definitely LGBTQIQ oriented. I am straight, but I live in an area that is very pro-rights and I love that my neighbors are awesome. I think everyone has the right to be who they are without judgment.
I'm not sure if I'm agnostic, but I am definitely NOT religious. Religion is controlling and insane.
I do love kitties, too, but I don't have one :( I have a bunny , though. Does that count? lol
I love art in all forms.
I'm not childfree--I have a daughter, but I thought for sure I was going to be childfree, so absolutely no judgments if you choose not to have children (my journal does NOT consist of ridiculous meanderings about motherhood).
Love books, love sci-fi, love ancient history, philosophy (I'm a total geeky nerd and PROUD)
When I took my Myers-Briggs Test in my Career Assessments class, I was ENTP, but I was only a 1 on the extrovert scale, which shocked me that I even remotely scored anything near extrovert, because I am not extroverted at all.
I'm not a vegetarian, but I do love animals and feel that they should definitely be treated ethically and I only eat local, grass fed beef and free-range chicken and turkey. I don't eat pork at all.
Not sure which I'd be in Harry Potter, so I'd better not speculate.
I hate politics and am an anarchist.

I think we would probably get along quite well, but I'll leave it up to you to decide and no hard feelings either way. :)

We have a lot more in common than I saw on the Summer Fun Friending Thread! Here's my abouts:

-Though I am a white, cis, hetero woman, I am an ally to everyone who is not any of those things: LGBTQ, non-white people, etc., etc. I believe that everyone is equal and that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
-STAUNCHLY childfree. I don't even really like being around them, though I will make exceptions for my friends' kids--even though I STILL don't enjoy them very much.
-VERY into social sciences. Was originally a psyc major, but dropped out of college. I still read about social sciences often and try to keep up on things.
-Occultist. Into most things paranormal. I'm an ecumenical Pagan. Again, I believe that all people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. People have the right to believe whatever they want, but they need to play nice with others. ;)
-Many fandoms, but I am not a gamer.
-Animals. My life revolves around my animals.
-Ethical vegan, but like you, most of my friends and family are not, and I don't get int people's faces about it.

Me, too!

I had plans to go through my PhD, but I ran out of money. At first, my parents were financing my education, but they couldn't anymore, so I did it on my own for a couple of years until I just couldn't. Even back in the 90s, I did not want to get caught up with student loans. Do I regret that? Yes and no. More no. I think about the kids graduating today, and it just breaks my heart to know that they will be snowed under for many, many years. I don't know how most of them are going to make it. :( I did not want to be in that situation. Things are bad enough for me, financially, as it is.

Thanks. I'm not always sure I took the wiser path, because my job prospects aren't good. I think that's more employers being pricks because they can, though.

When I look at everything, though, yeah. I dodged a bullet.

I'm sorry you didn't get to grad school. You're right, though: School loans ARE predatory. The whole system needs to be revamped.
