This will be updated throughout the year! Comments & conversation much appreciated. :) I had a lot of fun with my 2013 Scrapbook and I LOVED keeping track of it all. I'm a huge list person so in a very geeky way, this is fun for me. Anybuckets, the only thing I regretted about my 2013 Scrapbook was not using a table. So this time, tables! And I even made borders for it! Definitely put more effort into organizing this one. I like it!

Hi all. After a lot of wiffle-waffling, I've decided to come back to LJ. For awhile I was seriously debating leaving the site, but I want to keep at it for a little while at the very least. There is no way in hell I'm going to be able to go back and catch up on all your entries, so if there's anything important I missed, please let me know in a comment below and/or link me to relevant posts. I have been updating my scrapbook, which also updates the "last updated on" date in my profile, so I'm sorry if that confused anyone (as obviously there weren't actually any new posts so it probably looked like I was filtering or something).

As much as LJ etiquette tends to frown on this, I'm also going to kickstart my comeback with a friends cut. I simply don't have the drive or dedication to LJ that I once did, and I need LJ to not feel like a chore if I'm going to give it a fair chance. I want my flist to be smaller for a lot of reasons but I'm still sorry to come back only to say 'bye' to some of you. The people I'm cutting are either a) people that I feel do not read my journal any longer or b) people whose journals I have been struggling to read. Or, in some rare cases, c) I feel like we never really connected and you were probably added from the last friending meme I did so I was waiting to see if we ever clicked.

I've been on LJ a long time guys and the sad fact of the matter is, when you've been on here as long as I have you begin to see patterns in your interactions; you have to accept that there are some people you just get out of sync with, if indeed you ever made a connection at all. That being said, this is NOT a "comment and I'll keep you" post. If your username is listed below it means I have a reason, or reasons, that I just don't think we're really friends on here. I don't think I've ever done this sort of cut (where I inform you, rather than give you an option) and as much as it makes me sad and squirm-y, it needs to be done. I apologize in advance for any hurt feelings, although I don't think there will be many. Plenty of the people being cut I also am in touch with via other mediums, which is awesome, so please don't take this as a "I AM CUTTING OFF ALL COMMUNICATION WITH YOU EVER" move. I am totally more than willing to continue talking via email/snail mail/Twitter/FB/etc! Just for LJ purposes, I need a more intimate flist. I have way too many usernames right now where I see it, and have to stop and go "uh, who is that again?"

Stealing this idea from pretty much all of you ever (seriously, how many of you have already made posts like this? I saw SO MANY. Link me if you have one!)

Books or TV that are re-watches or re-reads will be indicated as such. All TV will only be listed once the series is completed, rather than listing every single episode I watch of anything. The LJ section is starting as of Jan. 3-ish rather than the first, because I changed up everything before I had decided I would keep a 2013 Scrapbook. Oh, and the music section will only be music I got hooked on, as I listen to WAAAAAAAAAAY too much new music to keep track of it all.

★★★★★ Adored it-- new fav.
★★★★☆Liked it a lot.
★★★☆☆ Was good but probably wouldn't re-read/watch/play (it lacked a "wow" factor for me)
★★☆☆☆ Wasn't a fan.
★☆☆☆☆ Couldn't even finish it or wished I hadn't.

I've made a lot of mistakes in life. I've often been accused of being unrealistic, of trying to orchestrate things in such a way that doesn't make sense to anyone else but me. I will never regret, however, removing myself from the lives of those to whom a relationship with me was no longer productive. My curse, more often than not, is fully comprehending the bigger picture even when I don't want to. I've cut ties with a lot of people over the years, both in RL and on the net, and a lot of them didn't understand or at all appreciate it. Most of them, I never let back in. It's simply easier that way, and I don't regret it. Removing myself from a situation where I was personally detrimental, and seeing that reality affirmed after a few months of no contact, I can't bring myself to be sorry. Sorry for the loses, and the sacrifices, but not the act itself. I don't do goodbyes. This is especially true of goodbyes I know won't be allowed to escape my lips if I ever dared utter them. So yes, I'm brutal and probably a little cruel by simply cutting off contact, but I know from experience how terrible it is to be chained to someone without even hearing the click of the lock. I won't apologize for allowing those that needed to grow a chance to actually do so, even if I was the only one who saw it.

This isn't regret but it is a generic sort of upset. I've always been highly retrospective, and fairly adept at figuring out what people do and do not need. It doesn't make the realization that what someone needs is for me to disappear a happy realization. I very rarely want to cut myself off from people, but sometimes it truly is necessary (and I don't mean that in a "I'm a terrible influence and soul-sucking" sort of way).

I have the sort of personality that makes me... an invisible crutch. Very few realize that they're using me as such but I can tell... I can always tell when *that* line has been breached. I don't know how it happens, or why, but it does.

I deserve all the contempt, anger, frustration, and hurt feelings from the people who get no explanation or warning. Just like I won't say that I'm sorry, I don't ask for forgiveness. I don't deserve it but I do what I do out of genuine concern and caring. I always have.

So, to the many of you who still follow this journal (plenty I'm sure without me even knowing) know that, above all else, it wasn't your fault. If you hate me and feel betrayed I understand that, and see it as more than justified. But I will not apologize for doing what had to be done.

Also know that, no matter how it appears, I do miss you.
