And for the first time in years...
... here I am back at LJ. Maybe it's a new year thing, who knows, but I've thought more about coming back here. I remember when this was THE thing and it seemed more interesting to read others' longer posts. I never check Twitter because it just seems like an endless series of name drops and retweets and nonsense, but hasn't FB become that anyway (not excluding my own failures in that regard)?
At the very least, I want to try and keep track here - for my own health - of my drinking habits. There's something to the idea that writing down how much and how often might actually curb that behavior somewhat. Just want to spend less time with alcohol in my system.
Also want to get back to my reading habits, which have been positively abysmal the last few years. When I can't even be bothered to read a book by Steven Pinker, whose stuff I used to tear through, then it's time to change things up.
Not to mention, my ability to write my own thoughts coherently has also degenerated. I've got a lot of work to do to tighten that up.
But the best part is, almost nobody hangs out here anymore, so I don't really have to answer to anyone regarding what I write here. The two folks I see who still post here are probably the most centered when it comes to understanding and adult perspective and I can't really see either of them giving me crap about what I write. :-)
So.... forward, to the past!
(And for the new year, I've only had two sips of Prosecco since 2013 ended... might go get a small glass right now.)
