Up, up, and away!

It has been quite a while since I posted here on LJ. More than a year, actually. Trying to figure out why, I think I sort of associate it with some unhappy times now. I have an icon that talks about LJ drama, there was literally enough of that going on that someone designed a userpic about it and I felt like I should adopt it. Needless to say, that kind of thing got really old! The sad part is that LJ is pretty cool, it's much more customizable than a lot of other stuff out there. Anyway, I'm going to try to give it another chance. The other big reason I haven't written much is that things have been so sporadic in the last year. After the economy went downhill, I wasn't working and I've been feeling ill for some time. Not really fun to write about, so I never logged in.

There have been some good things, I tried to post stuff to Flickr pretty regularly. My dad retired after 38 years in the ministry, he had a nice send-off from Holy Cross back in June. My brother got married in July, he & Jen had a very nice ceremony. Jen is going to school in Missouri, so I haven't had a lot of time to hang out with her, but she seems like a cool person! Also moved the Summit City Fencing Club down to St. Henry Community Center & Catholic Church over the summer, we have practices down there on Paulding Rd nowadays. Pretty nice facility, I'm hoping we'll be able to bring our membership numbers back up in the coming months. Started hosting "game afternoons" a few months back, having people over every few weeks to hang out and play board games. (Once Dad retired, weekends were a lot less stressful since he didn't have to preach and I could more easily accommodate guests!) Had a nice birthday in November, my buddy Andrew came up to visit and we hung out that Sunday. Another big reason I'm trying to get more into LJ again is that, as a joint b-day/Christmas present, my parents paid for the lion's share for a new Dell laptop! I sold my old desktop to my dad, so between that and the gift, it almost totally covered the new computer, which has been very useful.

Anyway, I guess those are the highlights. I still log into MySpace every once in a while, but my big thing lately has been Facebook. It seems like a ton of people I used to know are on there, it's been fun to reconnect a little! Feel free to "friend" me if you're on either or both of those! I've made promises about communication before and haven't followed through, so I'm not going to do that again, but hopefully I can be a little more faithful about this kind of thing in the coming weeks. We shall see. Hope all my LJ friends are happy, healthy, and wise!
