I'm always on AIM and I check my journal often, so I'm very accessible. My journal is usually a place for my objective writing, and I usually save personal conversations for AIM (though I will post the occasional rant on my LJ once in a while). If someone shows me that he/she is interested, I open up very easily and can strike up a friendship.
I'm trying to think of a compelling reason to be friends with me or go out of your way to talk to me. I suppose I'm not that boring, and I try to keep the self-pity down to a minimum when I'm in a conversation. I can be a pretty good conversationalist if you give me the chance... Anyhoo, If you would like another friend, IM me (aim: Rodanside) or reply to the post. Toodles :)
