On December 7th I decided to swear off twitter and plurk (outside of plurks tagged with tf or obviously about [community profile] thoughtformed). I wasn’t sure if I could do it, so I didn’t say anything when I made the decision, but as it’s been more than 21 days, I think I can safely say I formed the habit of not regularly checking those sites anymore. I realized I had an unhealthy obsession with checking them all the time, so basically: It’s me, not you. I hope we can still be friends. Etc.

I’ll still respond to @ messages and DMs on twitter, and any @’s and pplurks on plurk because I’ve got email notifications turned on for all four of those. I've also got text stuff for twitter enabled, so we could even use that like text messaging.

I know it's kind of awkward and weird making an announcement about this, but I also really really hate it when people disappear from social media with little fanfare and then you just wonder about them for a long time, so... yeah. Also, it really has been a conscious decision, so it felt like a conscious announcement needed to be made. I'm so addicted that I don't think I can use the websites without getting full-blown obsessive again; even checking plurk for tf stuff feels dangerous, but I don't want to miss out on plotting things!

Anyway. End of year meme!!!

01. What did you do in 2011 that you'd never done before?

The end of year meme. I was going to tack on this "fandom" end of year meme but it kept asking me questions about the fandoms I planned to get into. Am I the only one who doesn't EVER "plan" to check out fandoms? I'll watch TV shows, yeah, but I never go into a TV show/movie/book/etc for the sole purpose of fandom. Fandoms find me. So there.

For previous years, please see: 2006, 2007, 2008, & 2009. (Older years will be locked down again in a few days. Honestly can't remember what I wrote in them, kind of too afraid to reread.)



01. What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before?
Quit my job! That was pretty monumental. I mean, I quit Sonic (fast food place) to go to college, but I don't think that's the same as quitting my post-college job. Oh, and I also navigated NYC by myself! Took a train to Long Island all on my own, navigated the train schedules and everything. Had my own clients. Hailed a cab. Quite a few things, I guess, but the job thing was really the most important.

And all the rest. )

2008 year in review.

1. What did you do in 2009 that you'd never done before?
Met [livejournal.com profile] yamapea. Flew alone, all on my own, no study abroad/travel group to meet up with, bought the ticket without anyone else's help. Went to karaoke. Graduated college. Held a full-time job. Began repaying school loans.

2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Didn't make any last year. I would, however, like to make some for this year:
(1) Eat healthier
(2) Cook one meal each week
(3) Exercise regularly
(4) Aim for happiness
3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
My cousin Anna is pregnant! Does this count...

2009. )

1. What did you do in 2008 that you'd never done before?
Voted. Lived in an apartment. Lived in a foreign country. Spoke a foreign language in something other than a classroom setting.

2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
My resolution is always to lose weight, and yeah! It actually happened. I don't think I'll be making any resolutions for this year though. I never bother to actually think about them.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
Yes, my cousin Amy (a daughter, Ava) and Liz (a daughter, Randi Marie, WHO THE FUCK NAMES THEIR KID "RANDI" I MEAN SERIOUSLY WHAT THE FUCK).

2008. )

Fireworks have started, so I guess that means it's time for that end-of-year meme. I wasn't actually going to do it, but you know what, it's a good way to keep track of how you've grown. Here's last year's, if anyone is interested to see how I've changed. And now: 2007. )


Also, um, I've made an flist cut. I missed out on checking my flist for two days and had to do a friends?show=p&skip=50 and I'm always sort of frightened by that. Please feel free to take me off your flists even if I've kept you, because after all, the New Years is all about making a fresh start. It's always defriending amnesty day on this journal (I know this is overused and stereotypic to say but whatever), and it's even moreso today. Also, I'm planning on keeping my lj mostly public, so don't worry, you aren't missing much if I've defriended you!
