One month anniversary

Okay, technically that would be tomorrow, but more than likely I'll forget to mention it tomorrow --I've been actively using Live Journal for a month.

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.

*THROWS CONFETTI* HAPPY ONE MONTH! LOL.

Well... it's not too late to move all your stuff again. LOL. Make a new journal or what not. But I totally understand the hassle... I paid to get my LJ name changed. XD

Ooh, I like confetti. :D

And as for moving...yeah. It took 8 hours last time. Not happening again, unless there's an "insta-import" feature. And even so...I'm not big on change, so I'll probably be here forever.
