I haven't been active on LiveJournal for a while (obviously), but I now have a Tumblr account, at alunclewe.tumblr.com, and I have been active there recently. Well, sort of active. More so than here, anyway. Though I suppose it wouldn't be possible to be less active than I have been here.
In fact, it was in while writing a new Tumblr post (my longest one yet, I think, and one that in many ways perhaps seemed more like a stereotypical LiveJournal post) that I mentioned my LiveJournal and thought to look back on it and saw how just long it had been... and decided to write at least one last post here. Well, I say "last", but I don't entirely preclude the possibility that I may post again here from time to time, but it's likely to be infrequent. You can follow me on Tumblr if you want (slightly) more frequent updates as to what I'm up to.
In the meantime, because it sort of summarizes some of what I've been doing lately, as well as the backstory of how I came to make this post in the first place, I'm going to copy the entirety of my latest Tumblr post below:
I feel like I may have already used the above title in an old post on my long-fallow LiveJournal, but even if I did, it can’t possibly have been as true then as it is now.
(Incidentally, looking at said LiveJournal now for the first time in years, I’m... rather aghast at what happened to have been the last post on it. I ought to make at least one more post on my LiveJournal, if only to bump that rather embarrassing post from the final position and redirect any lingering LiveJournal “friends” to my Tumblr...)
So I haven’t updated my Tumblr much lately, and have missed yet another character update for Teras Terrace as well. I’ve missed the last two weeklyartchallenges, and came very close to missing the one before that, and am going to miss the current one as well, seeing as the deadline is two hours away. The truth is... I’ve been absolutely swamped with my new teaching job. I thought I was busy last semester, with my teaching credential program, but it turns out to have paled in comparison to how busy I feel right now. Between preparation for classes and grading, the job has kept me busy nearly 24-7, and I’ve been getting a maximum of four hours of sleep on weeknights. I’ve just had no time for anything else. And I feel terrible.
I’m going to go on, but because I don’t usually use this tumblr for such personal ranting (that is, stereotypically, what LiveJournals are for, I guess? Maybe I should have posted this there?), I’m going to make this the first time I put the bulk of a post behind a cut...( Keep readingCollapse )
