I suppose the existential and very real LJ drama of the past week means that I should make an inaugural dreamwidth post. I did move everything from LJ to here; I'm a bit of a digital hoarder, which is WAY BETTER than being a real one, so let me have this. But I am trying to think of this as a bet of a fresh start and will try to post more. Writing is cathartic, and I should take advantage of a platform that allows me to do it easily.
It was interesting, in looking at my LJ, to see how much of my life it encompassed. I started that thing in 2004. And it's interesting to take stock of where I am now, and what's different. Some of the things that are the same are sad (still depressed about my love life or lack thereof, still sort of lonely), but a lot are good - I love learning and challenging myself as much as I did then, and I'm still up for new adventures. The things that are different are all pretty great. I'm about to finish my second year of law school! I've fallen in love with health law and I'm actually pretty good at it! I have great taste in margaritas! My taste in Premier League teams that can actually win shit is not good, but whatever!
For the most part, I like the person who I've become, and I think the 15 year old me who started that LJ lo those many years ago would be pretty pleased.
Possibly less pleased that her 27 year old self had an exciting Saturday night of watching a documentary about wine fraud and then getting into bed at 9 p.m. But I did love 15 year old me's habit of wearing glasses with clear lenses because she thought it looked cool and intellectual, so we're even.
