Hello fuckers. [Oct. 13th, 2016|05:37 am]
Expatriated Zulu and Charming Negress

There's a lot of shit I could/should write about. Politics, of course. Current culture. Social justice efforts. And personal shit too. Health, friends, experiences, renovating this house.

But a combination of ennui and hummingbird brain syndrome (if that is a thing) means I confine my (questionable) wisdom to Twitter these days. 144 characters, zip, boop, lost in the scroll of blatheryblahblah.

Frankly, any time I consider delving into the creation of a long-form screed, I get this internal defeatist telling me "eh, why bother? No one's gonna read it. No one's gonna care. You're not gonna be helping anyone but your ego. You're not gonna make a difference no matter how much effort you put into it."

So I don't.

I have been struggling to update my LJ for similar reasons, but I started trying to write things now and then because I was going crazy with it all in my head.

Even if no one's reading, I am happier to have written it down.

I love LJ, but Twitter is easier.

I stopped LJ for a while, still find it useful to vent, but I also like to keep up with folks who still use it.

I may not have anything to say but I read it.

And hello to you, too. :)
