I'm a newbie, I joined LJ a few days ago, mostly to make friends. I've been lazy & not actually posted in my LJ yet, but I'll get round to it! Anyway, here's some info:
Location: London (UK)
Vegetarian for about 4 years. I became a vegetarian gradually, I only ate chicken and fish for a few years, and became fully veggie when I was about 14. I never really liked the taste of meat, and knowing what it is and where it comes from.. it just ruins it for me. I can't eat meat without visualising the dead carcass it came from. I just find it much more pleasant to eat veggie substitutes. I'm not gonna lie or front- I'm not huge on animal rights, I'm certainly not an activist, I respect others decision to eat meat. I guess what I'm trying to say is, I'm veggie more for myself than for the animals.
Music: Mostly rock/metal, but I also have a place in my heart for pop & rnb. Some bands I'm currently obsessed with include Finntroll, Ensiferum, Children of Bodom, Korpiklaani, Elvenking, Billy Talent & InMe.
Movies: I'm a horror freak! Stuff like Saw, Hostel, Halloween.. I also love a good RomCom and some action movies.
Books: I'm just gonna get this out of the way.. Twilight? YES! I'm one of those girls. Don't say I didn't warn you. Virginia Andrews is my favourite author though, I'm also a fan of Clive Barker & Stephen King.
Other random interests: Writing, graphics, art, music, dance, shopping, cooking (veggie food of course hehe), camwh0ring, foruming, tweeting & anything that allows me to sit at my computer all night.
