Activity List  
I'm hoping to get a new copy of the Happiness Project by Saturday, since I gave the first one I had away to my dear cousin.

But until then, I'm using this journal (as well as a physical one) to record some daily goals to get my off my butt and active.

I'm trying to set small daily tasks that I usually am not good about being committed to, and at least one big task a day. So far, brainstorming small tasks that aren't part of my chores and errands:

-Clear the apartment at least once a day. My apartment is funnily shaped, with twists and doors and hallways and it's easy to get it clogged up.

-Read a beloved series or chapter of a book. I no longer buy manga the way I used to in the past, but I have a pretty good collection of some excellent titles that deserve revisiting.

-Watch one good movie. Or this could be every other day. I'm on a WWII movies kick these days.

-Work a little bit on a small, side project. As of today I've started typesetting for our scanlation groups myself while we get new typesetters and editors.

Let's see how that goes.

I've got this, 2012!  
I'm putting this on my journals rather than plurk since I'd like to go back to this entry later in the year. Plurk is too scattered for that.

So here are my resolutions for this year. I'm keeping them short since I don't think I could handle a laundry list:

-Cut toxic people out of my life, online and offline.
-Be nicer to myself. No mean comments or putting myself down.
-Get in shape. I'm finally at my ideal weight so I'd like to stay healthy, as well.

I think I've done well with my past resolutions for 2011, so here's to 2012.

I started typing a mean spirited entry hours ago, but then my laptop died and I was too distracted by other things to get back to it.

Perhaps that was a sign. This is now my first post of the new year.

I have a perpetual case of wanting people to like me. Or rather, I'm scared of not being liked by others. This has, understandably, caused me grief to no end considering it led to my fear of confrontation, as well as have people walk all over in some occasions. Earning people's fondness makes me feel better about myself. Lately, however, it's been people's ire rather than their affection that's only been getting to me. Being liked no longer felt pleasant.

This has mostly to do with the friends I've lost in the past two years. Over the past year I've been so starved for affection that I gave my attention with abandon. What I got in return was inconsideration, ingratitude, and just plain hurt. I've allowed myself to look away from those who were just using me. I'm wary and weary now. I know how cold and isolated I act sometime, but I'm weary of those who like me because of a picture, or how I RP, or just fandom. I don't think I have the heart to forgive everytime, and I don't think I have a heart big enough not to be bitter.

I never meant for this entry to be so bleak, but I need to be honest with myself in order to get better and work harder at it this year.

I know I've been quiet as far as livejournal is concerned. I haven't abandoned my journal! I have, however, been too busy with travel and school to make a worthwhile journal post.

I'm going to be crossposting from my DW journal for the time being, and making LJ specific entries from time to time. I'm not leaving LJ as a service, but I'd like to be more available to friends who are either on DW or have left LJ. Or simply don't have me friended on LJ.

I'll also try to catch up with commenting to everyone.

And since this is posted on DW to begin with. Everyone, this is Sapph!

It's that time of the year again. Meaning, I'm bored and getting rid of stuff. I have several items for sale in case anyone is interested.

Friend List Sort Cleaning  
Basically I removed:

-Dead journals that haven't been updated in forever.
-Abandoned journals or inactive ones.
-Journals with no shared interests with mine.

Also, along with the following:

-I comment to your journal but you don't reply to my comments.
-You never or rarely comment on my posts.
-We don't talk anymore.

No hard feelings, I just wanted to sort things out. If you feel this is a mistake, please let me know.

Journal clean up  
I haven't done this in over a year. I'm removing journals that haven't been updated in forever, and those I feel I'm intruding on. No hard feelings. It's just how things are.
