Looking Back [Nov. 7th, 2011|04:38 pm]
J. M.
All the activity in turimel's journal in this past week has had myself looking to see what people from the fandom are left on LJ. Not that I would want to be active in a fandom, but it would be nice to see the people again. I really wish I had started looking back a year ago, before slipperieslope left us. Sometimes it's hard to stay in contact with others when your interests begin to deviate so greatly.

I'm back in school full time, still trying to finish my bachelor's degree. I've also finally moved into a sleeper room on campus just to avoid the long commute from the suburbs everyday on public transit. I'm lucky that I live on a floor that has a lot of other people in their mid twenties to early thirties and everyone is friendly and talkative. This has forced me to be more social and I've started to carve out my own niche within the community.

If anyone is still around and reading this, I would love to catch up. I have neglected this place for so long that my journal appears abandoned. I'm going to try and work on this and we'll see what comes of it.

Hi! *waves* I'm still here. Not as active on LJ as I used to be, but I still log on now and then, and I am happy in a new (to me) fandom: Supernatural -- the Dean/Castiel pairing.

Yes, many of us drifted away to new things which was part of my problem. I see you have started to post other things in just the last two days! Hopefully I didn't make you feel too bad about LJ. :)

Nope, I've been thinking about trying to post more often for some time now, you just gave me the push I needed. :)

Hola!! It's nice to hear from you again. :) I'm still on lj and still plugging along in a couple of different anime and TV fandoms.

Hello! Yes, the few times I've logged on to see how things were going at your school. I think one of my favorites was your students actually tapes themselves goofing off on their project. I can't imagine how hard it must be to try and handle them all.

No fandoms here but yo. :P

I try to post at least a time or two a month, sometimes more sometimes less. Jeff reads LJ a couple times a week but he rarely posts (8 whole entries this year!).

I'm actually working on it. Essentially, I'm giving my reliable people the hours they want and the unreliable person is on part-time, with the intention that I am hiring/transferring in a second part-timer. If there is a point that I feel like I'm working too much, I'll just take a vacation day. Or bother a part-timer to cover a shift. I do have one person from another store who simply just wants to work 2 days a week, that's it, because we are her second job. I can work with that! :D

Yeah, it was just a general blanket statement as I really haven't interacted with anyone on here for a long time. I'm sorry to hear work is still so bad. At the theater they hired too many people and gave them too few hours so that everyone fought over shifts to cover. I know that's not much better for trying to get good employees, but would upper management let you hire a few more people?

I don't post at this journal very often - I'm trying to feel comfortable doing so but it's hard. Most of the time I post at abject_reptile. It's nice to see you again. :)

It's wonderful to hear from you again! I think you're one of the few people I know that appreciates "library porn". I've had to move to a place that Will not accommodate my walls of bookshelves, so many of my books are being kept elsewhere. I neglected my librarything account for a while when things were crazy this past summer, but I think I've caught back up. I usually try to cull back when I hit 1,500. It's so great you have room for so many more.

I should have room but at the moment my brother is storing dozens of boxes, old computers, and who knows what else in my rec room and garage. They'll be there until he sells his house. Kindle has somewhat reduced my need to buy the 'real thing' (only because the books I want to buy are generally rare and available for free download) and Pinterest means that I can stare at book covers and whatnot even if I don't own them. :D

It was so nice to see your name on my friendspage again. I'm still around, still involved with fandoms.

Hello! I love all the kitty pictures you post. I joined kittypix just to see more pop up in my list. :)
