Video update

Six minutes, basic rambling. Just letting ya'll know I'm alive. Also in which my toilet cycles. Yay for noise that you don't notice until you upload the damn video.

Definitely want to do a video detailing the Lupus story, but given my tendency to ramble, I should, like, outline that shit or something first.

Karl, I saw your update and I've been meaning to get to responding. This is a big, big step for you and I'm proud and excited! Just to let you know, it was seen and I will get to you about it.

It didn't, didn't it? And I didn't hear it AT ALL while I was recording, despite the fact that it sounds like a jet engine in the video. All hail selective hearing!
LOL you probably got used to hearing it. Much like how my noisy furnace kicking on is somewhat invisible now.
Funny how you went from posting every day to posting once a month. Maybe just reflects how quiet and empty LJ is these days?
Yeah, actually, in big part, this.

I was pulling through decades old LJ news updates and whatnot and it was sad to note that you could see, year after year, the site emptying out. Bad management and I would guess just partly the fact that no website stays relevant for decades at a time.

It made me realize that eventually we're all going to have to move, and I have no idea where we'll go. It genuinely made me sad.
I've been poking around Tumblr lately. My first follower was an autistic German girl who reminds me in some ways of you. (Abuse amd self-harm survivor, upbeat and hopeful and compassionate, random and deep conversations, friended me out of the blue within days of starting my blog...)
I've thought of Tumbler, but (1) For the life of me, I can't figure out how to navigate that site and (2) the big layouts with itty bitty text always makes my eyes hurt. What do you use Tumblr for?

And that's really sweet that she reminds you of me! It's good to meet people with whom you have an immediate connection, especially online. (Though upbeat and compassionate, not so much me as of late, but it's beautiful that someone else is!)
Aye, it's required a fairly significant investment in energy to keep my LJ going.

Sad thing is there's really no replacement. Facebook doesn't even remotely cut it, the way it doesn't even show people 95% of your posts.
Dreamwidth seems more stable, so I will keep up the crossposting and commenting there. All my other online homes have died/imploded for reasons, it always happens, but I'm grateful for the LJ folks who have stuck around. I do intend to post/interact more; I know a lot of people jump in and say that, and then disappear again, but I will try not to.

You've had such a horribly rough year, but you are looking much better, and sound like you are feeling, not contented with your dx, but at least able to kind of work around it a bit. I hope you have the energy to continue writing here when you can.
I xpost via DW, but it seems that DW will end up being the final site I move to. I don't know where in the world we'll go after that. :/

And it's okay about not being around - life really does take precedence sometimes. A lot of sometimes. I don't at all hold that against you or anyone. *HUGS*
I have been sucked totally into facebook. There is feedback there. I can converse with people in near real time. I just noticed that I have not posted in months now. Not that I dont have much to say, but I tend to say it all on FB and get feedback on it, rather than just posting it for the KGB to read. lol

Glad to see you up and around.. I really wasnt sure you would be here much longer the way things were going.. .You look good.
