First the Pander fan group brings all of the zinesters out of the woodwork...then alicetiara reminds me about the el jay. It's funny, because zines and the LJ world were two communities that brought me so much happiness back in the day and for the last year or so they were practically non-existent in my life. Now that I'm done with school, I'm ready to change that.
But I won't be coming back under this user name. It doesn't really describe who I am anymore. Yes, I still go on breathless rants that leave me red-faced, but I'm a lot calmer and a lot more at peace than I was before. I may even delete this one, if only because I am not really sure I want the reminder of my old life hanging around the interwebs like that.
Anyway, how are you?
I am doing very well! I'm like all grown-up and shit. Brian and I got hitched, we are buying a condo together, and I have a job that gives me health insurance and free internets. How about yourself? How have you been doing?
I'm sorry that it wasn't! By the way, I never did call you back about meeting up for lunch, which is totally lame on my part. If you are still interested let me know.
However, I thought I saw you at the Publix in downtown several months ago. My fear of looking like an idiot kept me from saying anything.
The new lj is soalivesofree, by the way.
I was just today wondering what happened to you!
I'm doing well: married, back in school (currently avoiding research paper by skimmin' LJ) just got done throwing a GIANT party based on Vesuvius destroying Pompeii...
In short: busy, bone tired and wondering what to do with my life that integrates my intense need to enact positive change with my need to be creative. And also I'm pretty fucking happy, when I am not stressing out about what path to take next.
Let me know what you come back under. I looked into changing my name too. (Naughty bee's are all the rage, every fetish wear costumer has a version. I'm over it.) However I am too lazy and when LJ told me I needed to pay money to edit my username, I decided it was too much effort for such a triviality.
LJ wants to charge money just to change your name? LAME-O.
I'm glad to hear you are doing so well, too! What's your research paper on? And also, I am OBSESSED with Pompeii and Vesuvius. I made a web site about the ruins for a humanities class a couple of years ago, and I had a blast while doing it.

That is so funny - you kind of summed up my dilemma in less than a sentence. It's not a bad dilemma, I think. My guess is that if we follow our hearts we'll be just peachy. :)
The new LJ is soalivesofree, by the way. Add me when you get a chance!
:) I thought of you recently, and thus can take credit for your return to LJ. Congratulations on your marriage, degree, and life in general! I'm glad that you're happy.
As for me, I've moved in with my manfriend and his cats, finished my master's degree, and working at a temporary job while hunting down my dream job. Not a bad life at all.
