So... HAI.

It's been a while and I've let a lot of my paid features go by the wayside. TBH, I just haven't had a lot of time online, and Facebook and Twitter work fantastically for my short attention span.

But, I'm still around here from time to time, especially for moments like these.

Not much has changed with me, still the same idealistic, tries-to-hard-to-help-others at my own expense, impulsive self. Same cycles - love, burn, move on. And put on more weight, but if there's one thing I know, it's that each bullshit moment is temporary.

Things at work are awesome; I really dig my job and I'm happy living on the river and totally stoked to be in Daytona.

Sparky temporarily moved in with me in June and told me Sunday that he's moving closer to Orlando. Was really pissed off about that, but then I remembered the serenity prayer:

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.



Which means if someone's going to be the same old flaky dumbass, there's nothing I can do about it - or rather, I shouldn't even bother trying to change it.

On the other hand, I have my own healing to do, and I'm doing my best to let go of others' issues and focusing on myself.

Hope things are good with you all. Hope people still use LJ.

LJ only gets better, methinks, and I do love FB too, for the more day to day things.

I just cannot warm to Twitter, the conversations are almost impossible to track and follow, every time I go there I get confused, things just move too fast and I just am too busy to try to keep up.

I feel so bad for ignoring LJ- I try to check my flist now and then so that I'm not TOTALLY behind, but I just can't do it like I used to. I only post when I feel like I MUST.

I miss you! I'm glad you're having a good time with things. And I'm glad you tweet often. I really don't know what I did with myself before I had one of those.
