So I've obviously been terrible about updating again. It's been for a few reasons, all of which I'm very aware of, but it doesn't seem to make much difference. For one, it's been summer reading at the library, so I've been very busy at work. But I think more importantly are two things going on at home. Firstly, I've really made an effort to not get on my home computer much. I'd developed a very bad habit about coming home from work, where I'd often been on the computer all day, and just getting on the computer again for the rest of the evening. But secondly, I've been doing a daily journal this year. A lot of the time, once I write about my day in my journal, there just isn't the impetus to write it all up again for LJ.
Of course, part of it is not really being involved much in any kind of fandom, either. I was doing pretty well with making icons for theiconthrone
there for awhile, but that's fallen off my radar, too.
I continue to miss LJ, especially my first couple years on here; I miss having messages to respond to, and having assorted amounts of fun. I don't know - it just seems more difficult for me lately to make the time for it. I always go to bed each night thinking of all the things I didn't get done; there just isn't enough day for me anymore, it seems like.
(It doesn't help that I feel guilty for not keeping up on y'all's blogs. Like, if I can't make the time to stay up-to-date with what's going on in your lives, what right do I have to post anything here and expect any of you to read it? I have the oddest social media-related anxiety sometimes, IDK.)
Anyway, I'm going to try (again, as always, ad infinitum) to be a bit more dilligent about checking in at least weekly. I need to, like, set aside one day in particular for LJ stuff. Maybe that'll work, heh.
