ONE MONTH since I moved all my TV entries + a few fanfic ones over here and tried to make myself stick. I've rounded up 20 friends, a half-dozen communities, left a hundred comments and received nearly 50 (any number above "zero" still thrills me), gotten perfectly acquainted with LJ-cuts and am no longer afraid to use basic LJ terminology. It's no longer just a cross-posting place; I'm writing my entries here and making Xanga almost an afterthought. I have a few things on here that aren't on any of my Xangas. 30 days later, this is home, and I like it.
It feels like I've been here much longer, though. The speed with which I catch myself up on obsessions is a little scary. Shouldn't be surprised, given that it took me about a month between learning that CSI fans even existed online...to being all caught up on 5 years of canon, throughly knowledgeable about and supporting GSR, and aware of all major fan sites & fic authors... (Voice: 'And that was the beginning of her current love affair with discussing TV online...pity, I had finally tamed her X-Files obsession around 2003...')
It also makes me wish I had been a little more clever in choosing a journal name. I picked it only because I didn't know what I was going to use it for, but thought I might store fic here, and I wanted it to be recognizable (i.e., identical to my pen name). I'm not sure I particularly like my pen name anymore, but you need it to understand the initials, and I'm really quite attached to calling myself "RS." I just wish I had a prettier name in my URL. Oh well.
And those are all the rambling thoughts I have, at least until I feel like wrapping my head around CSI Miami.
