Alive!

I definitely still use this LJ, even though it seems like most of the world has abandoned LJ in search of social media for those with shorter attention spans. I'm getting back into furry and doing my best to reconnect with old friends, so leave me a message if you'd like to talk again, or if anyone has any interest in hearing me blab about my life!

There really needs to be a form of social media that forms a nice medium between facebook and live journal. I want to have more interaction other than the quick sentences that facebook provides, but also would like something that appeals to the low attention span and general laziness that I and the general populace suffer from.

It's rough finding ways to keep up with furry friends without staying on AIM all the time.

I exist.

It should be noted that I do in fact still live. That being said, let's continue.

In many ways, I do in fact miss livejournal. While its probably better that I don't have an immediate outlet to vent about any minor peeves and small irritations in my life, I do miss the thought stirring conversations and the large amount of feedback that I could receive about my current thoughts and wishes. Facebook is restricted to a sentence or two at most, and at times, your thoughts are easily swallowed among the throngs of other hourly updates.

I'd like to think I've grown, matured, and found less drama in my life in the past 5 years. Unfortunately, the only substantial gains have for the most part been found in the latter category. I find my outlook on life, and my current 'wants' and 'dreams' change on a daily basis. About the only convictions that stay strong in my life are the ones about things I don't like.

In reality, I still have no idea on what I'd like to do with my life. I'm almost 27, and working a full time easy-mode job with good benefits, but no future. I refuse to get a degree without a strong direction on which way to lead my life, and for the past decade I've been unable to figure that part out, at least in terms of a career. I'm not even sure what to say about that. I don't know if I'll ever figure it out. At some point, I'm going to have to find something more substantial, but I guess only time will tell.

So, while I'd like to say that this will be my stirring re-entry into the livejournal community, knowing my will power and attention span, I foresee this being short lived. My attention span is short, I'm easily distracted by many things, and often try to take in much more than my brain can process. Hopefully I'll follow through slightly and continue reading friends pages and maybe updating here and there, but I'm pretty sure that a lot of people have either left LJ, or removed me due to inactivity. I suppose only time will tell.

Wow, I sound like a whiney douche in my old posts. Though to be fair, I guess I kind of am. Now a days I think I'm more of an angry ranter than a whiney insecure kid. Not sure that's a great change. First post in 32 weeks. Go me.

Opportunities Missed

I know I haven't posted in a long time, though I don't think that a lot of people really missed my sporatic updates. I also don't blame them, as I have done a poor job of keeping any of my social relationships healthy. I'd like to say this will change, but I don't know if that will happen.

I'm writing this post before I lose the urge to, as I feel it's important. Have you ever felt like there was a moment in time that was meant to happen for your life? Like something was there, ready to click, and so many other things would fall into place? I feel like I had one of those moments in my life, and I missed it. It was there, and it passed... and my life has been stumbling ever since. Today I found myself thinking of one person in particular, whose friendship I've underappreciated and greatly missed. It's been a few years now. Our lives have led us different places, and we may be too far removed now to even kepe in contact, much less connect like we used to. All I can say is... I'm sorry. I'm going to try my best to track you down and keep in touch, assuming you'll still let me. I have a lot of catching up I'd like to do.

I should make a facebook, I need all the help I can get social networking. Something to force me to keep in touch and be here. I'm going to be re-tuning this journal to reflect who I am and who I've become. Right now, it represents me from about 4 years ago, which is very very different. No friend changes should occur. Here's to a new design, a new chance.

Edit: Wow, the planets aligned and as soon as I posted this, I was able to immediately get into contact with said person as they logged onto AIM for the first time in a while. Just... wow.

Keeping up with the news in the world only leaves me endlessly infuriated and stressed out. The injustice is everywhere, and leaves me both motivated and paralyzed. I submit.

I bought an ipod nano, one of the new ones. The touch was nice, but too much ballyhoo and not enough substance. Not worth the tag, and the nano was more of what I was looking for. So far, I am pleased.

So something possessed me to call the Apple store and ask if they had any touchs in, less than 2 hours after I visited them. I was told they got a shipment in AFTER I had visited and was told they wouldn't have any til next week and that they just literally sold the last one while I was on the phone with them. The fact that I am 10 minutes from this store while at work makes matters worse. I should just give up until they're really retail available. Will probably save me a lot of stress, frustration, and disappointment. Bleh.

Sorry, I've been busy.

Today, I noticed someone had hit my car sometime in the past week. Wonderful. Not dent, but a large paint scrape, and I mean large. Like a foot long on the side of my bumper. Fucking fantastic.

I found out they were selling Ipod Touchs early, and I booked over to the Apple store to try and get ahold of one, but they were all gone already. I got my hopes up for it, and that just adds to the suck. I noticed the scrape as I was getting in my car to go for said Ipod, so it's like a double blow. Hopefully this day will turn around somewhere.
