Hi, I'm Zhelana. I'm a 35 year old female bodied asexual person type who loves learning new things (my current obsession is golf, and swimming!) playing with her animals (we have two dogs and two cats here), writing (mostly fanfic), volunteering at Georgia Aquarium, volunteering reading to an elementary school student, and I'm kind of fringy in the SCA (I used to be much more active there but over time I've found myeslf less so). I still shoot black and white film, which I develop myself in a darkroom downtown that belongs to a non-profit. I also write pysanky, which, if you don't know what this is, google it. They're amazing. They're ind of a Ukrainian easter egg with cool designs on them. I'm Jewish, and currently studying for my bat mitzvah, which I did not get to have as a child because I did not grow up religious. I have schizoaffective disorder but it is mostly controlled with medication and I feel that it doesn't affect my life too much anymore. I am also the author of that 31 day December meme that goes around LJ every year (it's less popular on DW for some reason but I always see a bunch of strangers doing it on LJ which makes me quite happy since it's something I just came up with for me to do each year, but it seems to make a lot of people happy.

I write about day to day life - mostly the things above. I also have a series of weekly things I write about including Music Monday, Crafting Tuesday and What are you Reading Wednesday. I read my reading page multiple times a day, but how much I comment depends on my social anxiety. A lot of times I'lll start comments then think "no they'll think that's stupid" and not say anything, even though I know that's ridiculous. But at times I can be quite chatty.

I'm interested in reading people who talk about their day-to-day life more than fandom. The only fandom I'm really in is seaQuest DSV, at least so far as still actively creating content. And honestly, the only thing I watch on TV is sports. So I probably won't "get" your more recent shows.
