That's why we stay away. Over here on this prettier side of the internet. With the ethical admins and laudable dedication to accessibility.

That said, how have you been doing lately?

Not gonna lie, the only reason I've stuck with LJ this long is for rp purposes. But all the people I currently play with are totally up for jumping ship over here now!

I've been okay, myself. Excited about Christmas even though we have no money for gifts. It's the decorating that gets me happy. Family's been a huge source of stress, between my aunt and her issues, and my mom's seizures coming back over this past month. A whole year free, and then they came back.

How've you been?

Huzzah! Perhaps you can point some of them towards [community profile] aather. Even if you don't app, it's fun to follow and read.

I read about the seizures! Oh my gosh. I hope they go away again. (Such a bad year for some people; some of our old neighbours sent a card saying how their house flooded twice (on the second floor) and three family members were diagnosed with cancer. :( I-I CAN'T COMPLAIN ABOUT ANYTHING AFTER READING THAT...)

I've been continuing to slowly adapt to the working life, which mostly seems to consist of perpetually denying myself sleep, learning to get along with a dress code, and missing actually learning interesting stuff. Though that might change in the very near future; I don't want to say too much yet, but I'll let you know if it does. I will say that I don't miss having homework in the slightest.

AND I'M READING SCOTT LYNCH I GUESS? I am so obsessed with these books now, they're beautiful and hilarious and filled with more delicious snark than I can process.

Any new series you've gotten into or that have caught your eye? I tore through Madoka and Ouran and I'm bouncing in my seat waiting for Korra and Brave to come out.

I thought you'd already read/watched/whatevered Ouran! I'm surprised to hear this. I tried the first episode of Madoka but I'm having a really hard time getting past the squished faces in the animation. I dunno, it bugs me. Uhhh mostly I've been rewatching really old classic anime, like Sailor Moon, Utena, and NGE. (Outlaw Star is next!) I'm afraid I haven't done anything particularly interesting otherwise, or gotten into anything interesting, but I am SUPER excited for Brave oh my gosh.

I did watch Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai when it was airing, and if you haven't seen it yet (I can't remember) I would recommend it.

Also ugh, I will be happy when this year is over and we have a hopefully healthier year. My grandpa's cancer is doing well, at least? It keeps coming back, but it hasn't spread or gotten worse, and he's adjusted much better to treatment. Double ugh at working. No job for me lately, out in the middle of nowhere, but I'm going to try to branch out further and see if there are any jobs worth the gas money after Christmas.

And I will check out [community profile] aather at some point!

...You know, I might have, but I picked it up late last year at the very earliest, so not that long ago. The series only properly finished a few months back, anyway. Aaaand I read all of Kimi no Todoke. A-all of the feelings.

Never heard of that one; I'll check it out. I also want to look into Michiko to Hatchin as per a friend's recommendation. I also still need to watch Paprika.

That's something, at least! Hopefully things get better.
