Figured out why I couldn't switch icons or click links or send twitter replies -- my new virus update automatically blocked all social media. WHAT THE. What even is the point of a computer without social media??
Say, also...is there any version of LJ Archive, or a similar program that still exists?
AND ALSO. I want an icon that says "things change" -- anyone feel creative?
New Year's Eve is a weird holiday. I always think there should be big plans and there never are. Sometimes I'm ok with that and sometimes I'm not. This year I have zero plans and am kind of bummed about it. Mostly I really just wish I could be at deirdre_c's house, eating fondue. But instead I'll be snuggling with Max, watching Frasier on Netflix. I mean, for me this IS a good time, but it also happens to be what I did last night. Not very special. Alas.
When I get moving here in a few minutes, I'm going to the grocery store to get the stuff to make Southern Style Slow Cooker Vegetarian Black Eyed Peas Recipe to take to my parent's house tomorrow. Wish I could think of a special treat to make myself for tonight, but nothing sounds good.
OK, enough wallowing. When I read this entry again years from now, I want to remember that Sunday night I had a really fun (and delicious) dinner with zubeneschamali. I want to remember that yesterday I had lunch with a dear friend. I wasn't looking forward to it for various, selfish reasons, but we had a blast. I want to remember this stack of cards on my desk that I need to acknowledge, and the stack of cards next to it that I want to send. I want to remember love and peace and happiness.
Do you make New Year's Resolutions? Some years I do, and some years I don't. Not really feeling the need for it this go-round. 2013 was a tough year for me in my work life. In retrospect, I can see how I contributed directly to those feelings and I'd rather like to avoid them in 2014. If I want things to be better, I have to make them better. Give in, get along, let go. Be brave. Things change.
I want there to be New Years Eve fic about Jared and Jensen getting tipsy on champagne and kissing at midnight.
Love you guys, now and always. Here's to 2014! *clinks glasses*
