Started off on LJ in 2003, made a backup account here a few years back, mostly private entries. But I have always missed journaling and since LJ's decline I have tried to check back from time to time. Now seems a good a time to post regular viewable things again. I've been away too long. And I am a bit burned out on Tumblr's infinite scroll of furtive, supercilious voyeurism devoid of ample conversation unless it be to cut other people down wittily (or not, as the case may be). I have made friends there, but on the whole...That being said it is nice for noveling inspiration, and staring at photosets of beautiful, misty trees and Harry Potter gif sets. (The links to mine are on the side bar if you are curious.)

But this is really the only viable sort of platform/community for recording daily or weekly events and engaging with folks at length. Other sites appear to be designed with the objective of prohibiting or making communication intimidating or convoluted.

See my profile and/or sidebar(s) for my interests. If you've somehow wandered across my journal and you don't mind some fandom flailing, random daily life ramblings, and occasional writing and music madness, please feel free to friend me, and leave a comment below so that I know who you are! :)

So, I guess I'm going to start using my dreamwidth, because I've had this account for ages, and I logged into my LJ because I felt like writing again, only to find that I couldn't get into my account because I have to grant access to the Russian Federation?! Anyway, I'm going to spruce my dw account here and make some icons, and start posting again before I'm adding people and having them wondering who I am. I believe we're mutuals on tumblr (which I'm also getting tired of)? My blogs there are gryffindoridiot (formerly teenie-scamander) and professorlupins.

Hi! Well, I don't always have something to post daily either.

I thought about putting a post like that up on tumblr too, but trying to drag people away from their reblog crack isn't as easy as it seems it should be. Some of the people I suspect are our mutuals on that site do have accounts here, but they've never used them, or used them once.

Agreed, and plus, seeing what people reblog isn't the same as seeing what people may write about. It's an entirely different thing. I think it was 2004 or 2005 when I started my LJ. I loved that site until they sold it.

Yay! I can't even remember how I came across your journal last night, but I was so happy to see someone from that other place posting here. :D

I've added you to my reading list! I'm also a language nerd/cat lady. :D

Hi. I saw you make a sane comment about journaling and we have some shared interests. I, too, want this to be a happening place.

about me

I'm a mad translator with a degree in Comp Lit and assorted languages. Writing a novel and studying violin. (The story has been flailing along for the past couple of years. I think that the Scrivener research file is larger than the actual text.)

I live with a rather naughty ginger cat. Is there any other kind?

I love tea, loose leaf teas, teas in sachets, all sorts of teas and COFFEE. The more legally, addictive stimulants, the merrier!

Music and books are my life. I basically live in a closet-sized library with a container garden. I occasionally sleep. <3
