random -- ljing


I did something that I've been too wimpy to do for a long time -- I removed from my friends list some journals of people I know in real life. I was too afraid of hurting feelings for a long time, but you know what? Just because I don't click with them journalistically doesn't mean that we can't stay at the same level real-life-ly. And treating journals differently based on whether I have 'real-life' connections with them or not is just dumb.

I also removed some journals of people who haven't posted in months. I felt guilty about that too, but who's to say they're coming back? I left notes in their journals and hopefully if they do come back they'll look me up.

The past two days I have been busy and feeling yucky. Aunt Flo showed up in the middle of work yesterday, and then I spent my whole first day at work. (Usually Ben pampers me, massaging my belly until the cramps disappear (yes he has magic fingers) and bringing me water and coffee and food and all that wonderful stuff) I've been completely uninspired to do more than read LJ, but no worries, I shall go on a 'commenting spree' soon. I promise I'm not ignoring anyone. And I have loved all of your wonderful comments lately.

I have some in-ter-e-sting posts percolating in my head, but they will have to wait until I actually have time and rest.

Oh, and I got valynn's postcard, yay! Pretty and purple-y, it will look wonderful in my collage! And thank you so much for the sweet things you wrote, I am so happy to have you as a friend too. When I got the card it totally blissed me out -- yay mail! Yay Valynn! Yay delightful words! ;-)

I'm just getting to catching up on commenting. Sorry that I've been kinda absent too.

As for deleting people, I think it's cool that you have the guts to do that. For me, it causes so much drama unfortunately that I just keep them. I do filters if there's something that I need to say that needs to stay away from them. Which at the time was all my journal. :/

I feel bad when I unfriend too :-( Even when their journal is deleted.

I want you to know that I think you're a wonderful person and I do like you, but I just didn't feel like we fitted together. I never know what people want -- some would rather you say nothing while others want an explanation. But I hope I didn't hurt your feelings.

funny, i started my period today. i always find it veddy veddy interestink how people who are close friends online even end up in similar cycles. i had seen it happen in real life friends, even in coworkers, but online? nifty.

although with as close as faetal and i are, and with as long as we lived together, we never synchronized our bleeding.

'cause our spirits our linked, our bodies can't help it. Maybe you're why I've been more regular (period-wise)! That's nice. *giggle*

yeah... I don't get how people can take LJ so lightly, but whatevah!
