Lots of changes these past five years. Turned 40 a few months ago. Going up for tenure this Fall. I have new family members and mourn several of my old family members. Life goes on, I suppose. More liberal than ever, but still living in a red state. Sometimes it feels very unwelcoming. I try to be polite in conversation on current events. But I cannot seem to keep from making my position known. Sometimes I wonder if I'll be overrun with pitchforks and torches.

After the LJ_strike-through I tried DW and IJ, but the fandoms were not as deep. Friends from LJ moved on, as did I. I hung out on Tumblr and, more recently, Imzy, but not in a really sociable way. I'm not sure what the fandom rules are, anymore. I've been observing and reblogging but not really interacting. My fault really. But, RL. I don't produce fan content. Just encouragement and a deep gratitude for those that do.

I almost deleted my 2012 posts, but I decided (obviously) not to. It's good to realize you've grown and your position on many things have changed. If you're interested, ask me about my feminist agenda. 😼

My current interests:

Technology

Politics (Global and national)

Tony Stark (a crush from the 80's)

RDJ (an admiration from the 90's)

Star Wars (Lord)

Dragon Age (Still writing mods for DA:I and still trying for a perfect playthrough on Nightmare)

Fantasy

Science Fiction

Empathy and kindness in the face of the unknown

Non-canon Platonic and/or Sexy-times Relationships

I have recently been contemplating things that begin with "C."

One group of "C's" has to do with my ongoing graduate degree at College and the difficulties I have faced in dealing with a Colleague:

Counterfeit.

Challenging.

Contrary.

Conniving.

Conceited.

Cowardly.

Cop-out.

Conspirator.


Another group of "C's" deals with a more personal Challenge:

Christ-like.

Christ-follower.

Christian.

Conscious.

Conscience.

Conspicuous.

Convincing.

Compliant.

Chosen.

Child.

Confidence.

Contentment.

Command.

Censor-less.

Co-exist.


My final group of "C's" is actually comprised of one "C":

Compromise.

If only more people were open to Compromise. What happened to self-sacrifice? What happened to empathy? What happened to perspective? Where did they go? Why must we deal with extremes? Why can't we Compromise?

This journal is mostly for me. I have another DW account, [personal profile] swlover  , but I worry too much about social obligations when I post on that one. I plan to use this journal for personal musing.
