Car retrieved.

$1395 later, I can drive. It's a bit too close to the holidays for me to do too much though. Reconnecting with family is taking up a lot of my time, and I've been a bit under the weather to boot.

I want to get more organized. Tumblr's got me trying this bullet journal thing, and I really like it. However, I haven't found a format that I really click with yet. Furthermore, if I miss one day, I find I miss a whole week or more. You really have to put a lot of effort into remembering each day. Or at least I do. I should program an alarm into my phone maybe...

Subete ga F ni Naru was really good. I'm sad its over, but the series really can't be expanded on. Nearly all exposition, but its amazing.

I am kind of comfortable just accepting that I want attention now. I used to think I was above that, but sometimes its okay to be human.

Car in shop

Car in shop probably until Tuesday. Repairs happening. In other news, lots of knitting!
Working on a blanket, large yellow stripes with thin purple stripes between.
A Honeypot, which is basically a basket with pockets. It will be purple and gray.
It must be a purple month.

I have no idea how to use new LJ. This is weird. I can only see like, 3 posts in the communities feed. Are they just inactive? Is something weird going on?


Business as unusual

Husband turned over the ic domain to me. Im building up a stock of climbers chalk bags to sell in The Wall, and on SM&SC. (unless contract prohibits, i do have multiple styles) Im still floundering for things i can make consistently and be happy with.

That being said, I'm very excited! Maybe, if im lucky enough, i will not need a "job" anymore. Thats what everyone hopes. I need to find more things to make. I need to invest in a few things.... And where does money come from? Catch-22!!

Writer's Block: Anti-bullying month

This is a weird topic for me. Its never going to be easy for people to talk about. For me right now, I even have people on this friendslist I would consider bullies, so for me to post this, it would have to be vague.

There's a difference between pushing someone to do something because they're being passive but legitimately want to, and shaming people into doing things you want because you want them to. I feel bad, but occasionally I will just be absent from the world and the internet because I dont want someone talking me into something. I am working on being a stronger person, but its difficult. So I guess... The person who is my biggest bully... will know who they are when they read this. And I know this person will never see it this way. And I know this person will find a way to make me feel bad that I can't handle it, and that its for my own good, or whatever.

(no subject)

I don't think I'll be on LJ much anymore. I haven't used it in over a month. I won't be continuing my paid subscription. I was really only on here for the lolita. And... I'm not terribly interested in continuing to be part of some of the communities. I still love the style, and all the friends I've made on here. I love my local community, and I love EGL in general... but I think it's come time for me to face that I've never finished anything. I sewed a few things, sure... I never really finished a lot of projects I planned. I'm not sure why. I will still keep this account so I can continue talking with my friends... but please don't expect me to post an update here.

I will probably be posting more to my wordpress blog, and to tumblr... I have a twitter. I have a plurk. I just don't really need a livejournal anymore. I've been trying so hard to fit into communities, and I ended up changing myself into something I hated and couldn't live with. I'm doing this for me. Things are looking up so much more since I distanced myself from this place.

So this is it.

LJ, we're breaking up.
