(it's been a while since i posted on not private. there are reasons, which friends who also know me in RL know. if you want to know more, hit me up on IM or something)
So, I like reading other people's blogs. Even (or perhaps especially) people I've never met or only met once or twice. As time goes by, and the words flow across the screen, I get to know them. Dreams, weaknesses, fears, elation, and loss all in 12pt font in my little bedroom. Maybe I'll never met these people, but I still have a personal interest in their lives. I'm sad when they slowly stop posting as often or switch to a platform I don't use.
But what I'm trying to say at this midnight hour, is that I admire them. I adore the reams of their lives they record and share, the shifts in writing styles from morning, noon, and late at night. To me, looking at these people is like looking at facets of humanity.
Or something. Have I mentioned that it's way past my bedtime? Hence the florid prose. It's hard to stop and judge what looks good when I get tired.
So what I'm leading up to, is that I've been inspired by cesperanza and astolat's 30 day journaling thing. So I'm going to try it. This might be the third or forth time I've decided to do something like this (and the the fact I'm doing it half asleep might not be good either), but I'll never be able to do anything if I didn't keep trying.
Today, I went to the farmer's market, and bought lots of yummy things. I'm also getting worried by how much I've been enjoying microgreens
. They're expensive, but oh so tasty, and I indifferent enough to most leafy greens that any type of green I do
like should be added to my diet. Maybe I should try growing them myself too? idk
Also, I got my pre-order of Vienna Teng's latest album today. There's a stream of it here you can listen to
(legally!). It's a more message oriented than her previous albums and her sound has changed a little, as musicians tend to do. I wish there was a little more in the way of piano ballads, but I like it. Especially the first song, Level Up.
Ah, fandom wise? I'm back into FFVII, for the first time in a few years. So far I'm planning to make a moogle dog coat (my Mae-dog needs something
for Halloween!) and have been poking at fics.
