Heya! I'm a Norwegian Gemini in her thirties. I have a fondness for life, love and humor, and I tend to babble on and on about things, when they catch my interest. I have been online since 1996, seeing the internet develop into what it is today, so different from when I started, and yet so similar.

Currently, I spend too much time on various World of Warcraft related sites..

I am a dreamer, and a romantic who enjoys life. I'm also a kind and caring woman, who hates to see people or animals get hurt. It makes me feel so infuriated and helpless that I can do so little to change the way animals are treated on this planet.

I'm also very concerned about the environment. I hate it when people damage our Earth. Humanity's killing itself, and that saddens me very much.

I am allergic to mean people, to cruelty, and to evil, which makes me sick at heart. I'm also an empath.

I can't stand extremist viewpoints of any kind, but I particularly dislike racists of any kind.

I'm almost completely a pacifist, with a hatred for war. I only consider violence in defense. I have a great deal of respect for Mahatma Gandhi and his ideals. Even if I've never been able to follow said ideals myself.

I don't speak about politics in this journal if I can help it, because I have been burned by one too many flame wars online in the past.

I have a weird sense of humor and a fondness for absurdity and trivia. It is the small, absurd details that tend to stick in my brain.

I am very fond of my friends, and consider loyalty and honesty very important to friendship and love. I have been burned by those I called friends in the past, but I haven't stopped meeting new friends and forming friendships I now can't imagine living without.

Sometimes I have a quite explosive temper. I can get very angry. It takes a lot to make me really angry, though. I do not think anyone who knows me today has seen me truly angry. My own anger frightens me, it is so burning.

I can be said to be very elf-obsessed, being a Tolkien fanatic. I have been a Tolkien fanatic since I read Lord of the Rings at the age of 12. I continued on to read the Hobbit and the Silmarilion. I have read all three many times, and continue to check Tolkien related websites online for trivia and information.

I have studied computer networking, with the intention of becoming a network administrator, but I have discovered that that is not for me. I now wish to become a librarian instead, so I am studying library science, which makes me happy. I feel I have found my goal in life at long last.

I have enjoyed computers since my parents got an 886 PC in 1986. Ten years before I discovered the internet, yet now I can't imagine not being online.

I love to read. One of my favorite hobbies is curling up with a good book, losing myself totally in the world in the book. Unfortunately, schoolwork and other things tend to take me away from that much too often these days.

I'm fond of going for long walks in the forest, and I'd get ill if I moved too far away from nature. Cities stress me out. It wears me out to be around crowds for too long.

As my name attests, I'm at my best in snow, cold and ice. I don't deal well with heat. Yet, I am allergic to cold, ironically enough.

I have an eye for colors, and I love well thought out color combinations and art. It's the artist in me. Even though I can't draw worth beans, I always appreciate the good art of others, such as my dear friend swandog.

I'm not fond of materialistic, judgemental and mean people, being quite open-minded myself. Such people grate on my nerves.

I try not to care what other people think about me, since my friends know who I am. The rest of the world shouldn't matter. I don't have that much faith in humanity. So I take my measures to avoid problems, paranoid as it seems. *smile*

Although it doesn't say so in my interests, I used to be a big Star Wars fan. I still have fond memories, and laugh at Star Wars jokes and fanfiction. I used to be a member of the Darth Maul Estrogen Brigade. But not any more, though.

If you've tried to comment anonymously at my livejournal, you'll see that you can't. I've set it so just registered users can comment. But if you're not a LJ user yourself and want to tell me something, just mail me.

I am also available on MSN Messenger I'll talk to you there if I have time. I'm not always on, but if I am, do contact me if you want. Let me know that you know me from LJ.

I use this journal as a place to talk about things that are on my mind, goof off with silly tests, and just be me. It's a journal of what I'm thinking. I can be quite opinionated, because I hold my beliefs quite dearly. Still, I try to listen to other people. Since my posts are often based around my personal experience, or things I observe, feel free to comment if your experience proves different. I am willing to listen to other people.

The name snowelf comes from the fact that I live in a country with 8 months of winter a year, more or less. Also, I get sick when it's too hot. When it gets above 80 degrees F, I'm melting.

The elf part? Blame Tolkien.

Astrologically speaking, I am a Gemini with Pisces rising and Moon in Virgo.
