Who is she?
I'm Red. Like the colour, not to be confused with the name Fred! I'm a nineteen year old girl living in Stoke-on-Trent in the West Midlands, but I'm a Southerner. It's pronounced Gr-arse, damnit! =) I'm studying English and History at Keele University. Slacker subjects really, as I have no idea what I want to do with the rest of my life! After being a Black Books fan for a couple of years now, I'd quite like to open my own shop, but who knows. Right now I'm busy figuring out myself as a person and living the crazy partying, drinking university life!

I try to have vaguely interesting stuff to say when I update my LJ. I like paragraphs so I try not to post many "GIP" and one liner posts. That said, I do spend a lot of time squeeing about Doctor Who!

Can I add you?
I tend to accept friend requests just about anyone, providing you look like you're a regular user and we share a few similar interests. However, there are reaons I may not accept you.

1) It helps if we have something in common. If one day I make a lovely batch of icons and you like them so much you friend me, that's sweet - but can we have something to chat about please?

2) If most of your entries and comments are comprised of textspeak and dozens of LOLs. It's annoying and I can't be bothered to try to translate each of your entries.

3) If you appear to have a problem with homosexuality. I have a lot of gay friends and in my anti-labelling stance define myself as "sexual". If you can't handle me talking about teh gayness in Real Life and in fandom, don't bother adding me.

- Red

Hi Red

Sorry, I have only just seen that you friended me, I friended back as soon I saw.

A couple points I just want to say upfront though - I don't refer to homosexuality all that much in my journal, if you dig around you will find a few references or hints about it, and some of the entries are kind-of anti-homosexuality. I'm certainly not a gay rights activist or something, by the standards that most people would consider from that term. With that, as with many other things in life I tend to live by a philosophy that I can't change how I feel but I can change how I react to it - how I react to it will not always be the same as other gay people will react to it. Having said that, we did meet via the LBGT and it is a part of my life, so anything that is anti-homosexuality is aimed at myself as well and not intended with the express desire of causing harm to others. Having got all of that out of the way, if that's alright with you, given the angle that I'm coming from, I hope we can still be friends becasue I really liked you :-)

Also, I'm not completely out in my journal, a lot of my f-list know but not all, and I do have a public journal so please will you bear this in mind if you comment in my journal? Thanks.

Hellooo! Thanks for adding me! I get where you're coming from and it's totally fine.. and I'll be aware when commenting in your journal! 'Course we can still be friends :)

So.. yeah! How's your summer going??

My summer is going well thanks, not much is happening, but it's much better than last year (in a nutshell, mum got married, we moved house and stepdad got cancer, all within 3-4 weeks of each other - Crazy!) But my stepdad is going back to work shortly and out biggest stress at the moment is about deciding which holiday we will go on, so that's cool! I've spent the evening writing my CV, the prelude of course to looking for a job and that's about it. It would be nice if it stopped raining quite this much, but I suppose everyone is feeling that. How about you, how's your summer going?

Yikes! Looks like you have an eventful year then! So you're Stepdad's going to be ok? If so, then good!! :) Where are you living at the moment? I moved back to Stoke two weeks ago and am trying but failing to get a job and thus panicking about paying the bills!! But it's pretty fun being back!

I live with my family, but that's still in Newcastle. Last year was pretty crazy but this year is ok, my stepdad has been in remission for more than 3 months and he is going back to work either next week or the week after.
