Right, this probably isn't the place for me to advertise anything, but I'm going to anyway, because screw the rules.
Basically, I'm looking for more penpals (I've got a few already, but the more the better, and I only speak to one on a regular basis these days). I'm signing up to LetterSets and see if anybody responds to my ad once I post it (the admins need to verify my account which I made about five minutes ago). I'm worried people will think I'm too boring since I don't really have very many similar interests to everybody else I know... although that is kinda the reason I'm doing this in the first place.
I want to learn more about people in different countries and their culture and the like. I also really need something to do with my life right now because I've finished school until September, was unable to get a summer job, and all I can think about is how everybody in my family is arguing with each other and a lot of my friends are doing stuff without me because they think I'm a kill-joy. I need a break and someone to talk to. I don't care what you're interested in, anything is good for me.
I really hope I can find someone who adheres more to my interests, even if that seems difficult (then again, this IS the internet), or even just someone who will listen to what I have to say. I used to speak to quite a few people on the internet before and I lost touch with nearly all of them, though that was really my own fault (y'know, that thing I was getting pretty upset about a few journals ago). This was also a time when I was on really good terms with my school mates and most other people in my life. Now, it just kinda feels like everything's falling apart and I'm getting more lonely. Don't get me wrong, I can cope with being alone (I am am a bit of a lone wolf, after all), but it's nice to have somebody to talk to, and somebody who doesn't know your whole life story.
Eh, anyway, I'm rambling again now. I'll see how the website goes. I'll try and respond to people who I think I'd get along with and put my own ad on there and see if anyone gets back to me. Wish me luck! Oh, and if you ever want to chat here, too, I'm around pretty much everyday so feel free to drop a note or something. Honestly, it gives me something to do and hearing from people really does make me feel better and motivates me to do even more with my life (being bored and having nobody but your mother to talk to can be really demotivating sometimes).
Also, I really need to get that camera. Photography is something I can do that will help me relieve some boredom. I'd love to not have to pay nearly £300, but my phone can only do so much and the replacement I got for my old camera is awful
. My five-year-old compact digital takes better photos than that, and, as I said, I'll want to use the new one.
