lunadelcorvo: (Jo Harvelle Badass)
I've been trying to get back to LJ lately (with mixed success; I doubt I'll ever use it or DW as much as I did 'back in the day'), but now it seems it has become a bit of a Russian police state. Lovely. So I suppose I will keep my liberal, democratic socialist, Tantrump-hating commentary here instead. Now the question is - do I delete that journal, or leave it? It sucks b/c I have a permanent account, and this one costs. Like I need another expense these days. Grrrrr.

But OK, then, here I am. :)

P.S. We need new moods! I need 'rebellious' and 'defiant,' just for starters....

P.P.S. Anyone know of any friending things? Anyone out there at all, come to think of it?

I haven't been here much, and it grinds my gears that when I finally decide to try and pick this up, LJ goes and sells out to Russian interests (well, the rest of the way, anyway). So I'm dusting off the Dreamwidth, airing out rooms, taking covers off the furniture, and setting the kettle on. I've imported everything I can (couldn't import and newer stuff, so I reposted by hand), and so my whole history is there. It feels more like a museum than home, but it will feel like home with time.... I will keep reading here, but I will be closing this down in stages over the next couple months.

I'm on DW at https://lunadelcorvo.dreamwidth.org/. If we're not already friends there, please add me and drop me a line and let me know who goes with your username, if it's not the same.



Things I need to remember:
• Asking for help is not, as it turns out, fatal.
• Laughing is easier than pulling your hair out, and doesn't have the unfortunate side effect of making you look like a plague victim.
• Even the biggest tasks can be defeated if taken a bit at a time.
• I can write a paper the night before it's due, but the results are not all they could be.
• Be thorough, but focused.
• Trust yourself.
• Honesty, always.
