Not much to report regarding the past few days... except the fact I seem to have done some damage to my right hand as a result of too much scrolling.:/ You know, going through pages of job ads on a daily basis etc. Well, if I am to be totally honest, I've been doing even more scrolling in the evenings, while going through Tumblr.;) The thing is, other sites I frequent (like LJ, for example) have mostly text content with occasional images - so you go down the page relatively slowly. Tumblr, on the other hand, contains mostly images with occasional text - so you pretty much keep scrolling all the time. And, as I have just found out, repeatedly making that tiny, specific motion with your middle finger (*LOL*) over extended periods of time can result in some swelling/inflammation at the base of said finger.:( Typing doesn't exactly make it worse... but it doesn't help either. So I may keep my entries here brief for a while as I try to give my hand time to recover. (And yes, I've taken a break from Tumblr, NOT from perusing job ads - because I am a motherfucking ADULT, dammmit. *sulks proudly for a few minutes* ;)

I also seem to have added three new people to my friends list as a result of a "friendzy" promoted by [livejournal.com profile] meathiel. It was totally unplanned - I hardly ever participate in those things - but seeing as my flist consists mostly of abandoned journals I can't make myself remove "in case those people ever come back", perhaps it wasn't such a bad idea.:) After all, reading people's journals is my favorite way of socializing (not even kidding here, though you may perhaps wish I was...:P). So... hello. Welcome to my strange little corner of teh interwebz.;) My life is very much in flux at the moment, and I devote a lot of attention to various ways of dealing with the uncertainty of change (my growing interest in holistic healing and spirituality seems to be a huge part of that).

In other news, autumn has arrived - and I'm not sure how I feel about that. On one hand, saying goodbye to the latest tropical heatwave is a relief; but on the other, the end of summer always feels kind of melancholy to me. It's the Seasonal Affective Disorder - SAD for short (same as Standard American Diet, which is even sadder, if you think about it). In addition, I might soon need to shop for some new clothes & shoes - though it is rather uncertain whether I can actually afford them, without another cash infusion from my parents. Which is also kind of sad, for other reasons.

I will stop rambling now. I promise I can talk about interesting stuff sometimes. Other times, though, I prefer to read what other people have to say.:P And so, good night.

I love to socialise through LJ as well although I haven't done much of this lately I know as I was in the USA for a few weeks. I thought of you when I dropped by Chicago :p

I'm sorry to hear about your hand :(

It's good that you have added some new friends. I took a look at the frenzy but it's not public.

Have you ever done any sightseeing in Chicago during your visits, or do you just see the airport? ;)

My journal is friends only but the friendzy is public. Here's the link:

Yeah, I think I might have inadvertently cured myself of my Tumblr addition...;D

Nodded my head at this bit: .."also seem to have added three new people to my friends list as a result of a "friendzy" ... It was totally unplanned - I hardly ever participate in those things - but seeing as my flist consists mostly of abandoned journals I can't make myself remove "in case those people ever come back."
I've seen a dozen or so of those friendzy things and never participated. Not sure what prompted me to this time, but I think likely it was the solitude of LJ. Until gaining the noobs, I had about 4 active LJ users on my list, when once it was like 30. And those 4 are only active about once every couple of weeks.

I'm really glad I did it, though. I've gained some new friends and hopefully it'll blossom into good things.

Hmmm... I probably have about 10 active users now, but none of the original ones I friended back in 2004-2005 are still among them. It does make me feel like an LJ dinosaur...;P
