piranha: red origami crane (Default)
after taking a break for a while, i am going to be reading LJ again, but i think i've finally got to start using filters for groups of people, because it now regularly becomes too much, and then i have to stop entirely for a while. damn.

of course it doesn't help when i decide to look at my profile (which i only do once in a blue moon when i think i should change something) and discover i've been friended by new-to-LJ snigglers, and then trawl their profiles and find more snigglers that i didn't notice before. so now there's more people to read: [livejournal.com profile] betonica and [livejournal.com profile] offcenter_wc and [livejournal.com profile] masaiwarrior and [livejournal.com profile] owned_by_2_cats and [livejournal.com profile] la_penguinita (who friended me ages ago, but whom i didn't then recognize because I AM A RETARD -- the paramour recognized her handle right away). the paramour, who is unfortunately much more easily missed here than on usenet, is [livejournal.com profile] mayaknife, in case anyone wants to read zir obnoxious posts.

i still can't figure out who [livejournal.com profile] lynn_massa is. is that just more evidence of my retardation, or does she post-date my ssm participation?

*moves [livejournal.com profile] snigglers to default daily filter*.

my life remains very quiet, which is a good thing. this june has been the nicest i can remember for a long time; warm enough to wear tshirts but never too hot, and lots and lots of rain or just overcast days. the hermit is happy. i am not growing any new annuals this year, so no vegetables either -- the landlord said he'd bring a backhoe in to dig a ditch at the property line, and that carries a high risk of destroying my small vegetable beds, so i am sparing myself potential grief by not even getting started. everything in the front, and the memorial gardenlet is well-established perennial or self-seeding annual, so i've not done anything but weed. yay. the fruits of hard labour in prior years finally -- i've moved so much before living here that this rarely happened, so it's cool to enjoy it now. i've convinced the landlord not to take the apple tree down; i hope that works with the back hoe. it'll probably lose some branches, but i don't care as long as the main shade remains.

i've been sleeping better since banning the cats from my room, but it's still not good; i remain tired pretty much all the time. i am sorta dreading summer because heat will make it worse. but then i've also told myself that it's not really predictable, so maybe this time i'll sleep great when it's hot outside. *snrk*.

still monomaniacal about japanese. it's fun to rewatch anime now that i had watched before starting to seriously learn japanese; i do actually understand significantly more now, even though it's still mostly single words and sentence fragments instead of entire sentences. learning how to conjugate verbs has made a huge difference. i am very slow to acquire vocabulary due to the depression-related memory dysfunction; i have to look up a word many times before it sinks in, but i am determined not to let that stop me even though it frustrates me to the point of tears at times. i'm going to try and write vocab down by hand as well as typing it into my own dictionary list; that might help anchor it better.
