delight: girl with camera; text "replace fear of the unknown with curiosity" (see you later innovator)
From: [personal profile] delight
DW username: [personal profile] delight

Preferred pronouns: She/her.

Other platforms (please specify): Not really. I used to Tumblr but it got too big and I had too little time for it. I have an AO3 I don't use, too ... OH, I'm a big big tweeter. [ profile] pseudelight

Active/primary interests or fandoms: Public health, neuroscience nerd stuff, small book fandoms (mystery, space opera, I have been forcibly dragged into liking traditional fantasy in some cases even though it's not really my jam), writing original stuff (and other people's original stuff), Dogs. There's some TV I enjoy but I'm only really fannish about books if I'm being fannish at all.

If you've seen me around, it's probably because: I used to RP a lot, and I'd love to find a game on DW that meets my likes/wants/needs but have totally failed so far. Otherwise odds are you probably haven't, I'm not really in fandom per se.

I post about: Books, esp. mystery and sci-fi. Life, more specifically a lack of it. Public health things. Quotes and silliness. Battles against chronic illness and OCD. My own sci-fi writing, one of which has an actual release date, under lock; similar with work/research stuff. Links to shiny things.

I post/check my feed: At least once a day, for reading. I've been worse and worse at posting because of a combination of busy and depression mire and the thoughts I have disappear once I get near someplace I can post them. Trying to figure out fixes for that, since I'd love to be more active!

I want to find people that post about: Books, life things, roleplay. Positive energy stuff. Their dogs. Dragons. Links to pretty or thought provoking things. Things they are proud of and other positive energy. Materialistic "look what I bought today"s. Original fiction.

I am most interested in interacting with people on: DW.

My blog is: Selectively public; anything identifying or talking about family things gets locked, as well as any content headed toward publication.

Anything else you need to know about me: I'm exceedingly, outrageously, pathetically shy and nervous. I love connecting with people, but am afraid of everyone in a legitimate strong overpowering way, so if I'm not commenting, it's because I was too timid to. If you like 'I read this' comments, I can do those. I'm autistic with all the trappings it contains, but very proud of it; I was diagnosed with Asperger's in 1994 as a very young female child (something that Did Not Happen) and my experiences with autism and life have therefore been very different from that of many people, so my framework on a lot of things is different. Also I do not engage with any political discussion, ever. I need a new intro post.

...NERD STUFF? *subscribes back*

And high-five from another Asperger's who isn't embarrassed or ashamed of it.

Hi! I identify very much with the love of connecting with people and being terrified about it and am intrigued by your mention of small book fandoms (I'm always on the lookout for more books to read). Adding you.

I don't necessarily write anything that interests you, but I'm working on an MPH and have Lots Of Feelings about public health stuff (particularly: perinatal mental health, adolescent ANYTHING. And am doing a dual Masters in Social Work, so mental health in general at both clinical and populations levels + trauma/PTSD/PTSD which gets misdiagnosed in middle-grade kids as ODD and ADHD, etc.)

I'm doing my MPH right now also and have a focus in mental health as well, so clearly we need to be friends anyway. :) Though I also have a lot of pre-grad-school field experience and so many words to say. I thought about the MSW myself! But my school doesn't actually have an MSW and I'm running out of spaces to put more debt.

Hello! I'm a scientist and fellow shy person who loves talking about science in all its awesome forms. I don't post much in the way of science stuff (well, except to whinge about experiments/lab/etc.), but I love getting into conversations about it with fellow nerdy souls. =)

Shy, neurodiverse (ADHD/dyslexia), neuroscience-type dog and horse person here. I teach college biology. Clearly we need to be friends, if you don't mind that 75% of the time I'm too shy to comment on anything even though I read and liked it. Mind if I add you?

p.s. super congrats on the book!

I'm super shy myself, and I am also fine with comments that are just like "hi I read this!" Or an asterisk, or something. Otherwise, I'll just assume you read everything. XD

I'm a student in biology so I'm very interested in your "nerd stuff" and also all things sci-fi (congrats on your book!). I don't mind even monosyllabic comments, I mean, 'I read this' is a totally legit comment to me :)

Mind if I add you?
