moon house

All day, the fog hasn’t lifted.

Having so much free time to lounge about while also still having to go to work for a few hours each day, puts me in this strange limbo between freedom and responsibility and the lack thereof.

I'm reading fanfic and writing feedback and writing up summaries for a recs page. I'm writing fanfic and working on a website. (sigrun: How do i create a page?) I'm sometimes spending time (either in person or via AIM/e-mail) with people -- torn between being a(nti)social and feeling like i don’t hang out with people enough. I'm not doing anything with my life in the usual sense (applying for jobs/programs, doing homework, writing essays) but i also think that this has been time well-spent.

I saw Contact. I approve. (Daddy, have you seen it?) Oh, and Dane is in my debt for, what did she say? forever? because i opened her Popcorn Palace bag.
“tiny and insignificant and rare and precious”
“awe and humility and hope”

In other news, there has been a frenzy of anon-comment threads as of late. I dislike and have refrained from ranting. nostalgia_lj recently had a freeforall fandom thread and then posted “ Things I learned from that anon-post thing. ( the collected wisdom of 890 comments ) ” and i’ve gotta say a big WORD to: The only thing more annoying than taking fandom too seriously is telling us we take fandom too seriously.
