hogwarts_elite has a getting to know you meme going that is super fun, and you do not have to be a member to partake! But I want you to be a member anyway, so after you go do that, you should go fill out an application to be sorted. And you should be a Ravenclaw. Just sayin'.

Hokay. I am going to make this journal friends only because a] I wanted to make a banner, and b] it kind of creeps me out when people are reading about my life and I don't know it. Comment if you're not on here and want to be added. My friending policy is that I'll add almost anyone who shares some interests with me, but I reserve the right to de-friend if we end up not having much in common or not clicking at all. It's nothing personal, I just feel bad if I keep people on my friends list and all I do is skip over their entries.

If you're new to my friends list, feel free to read my intro post. You can see it once I've added you.

So I've been on an friends-list-reading hiatus for a long time now. A little over a month. After a few weeks I constructed a filter of people I was very close to and have been reading that, but until today I hadn't read my regular, unfiltered friends list. I tried that today, and it was overwhelming and unpleasant. This has led me to make a decision I've been pondering for quite a long time now - I've done a massive friends cut. Not just a little one, a big one. If you were cut and are hurt/confused/pissed, here is a list of different reasons I decided to cut people: 1) The only thing we have in common is fandom X and we have never spoken of anything else. I am no longer interested in being active in any fandom, so this wouldn't be the basis for a very good relationship. 2) Your posts consist solely of Twitter updates. 3) You hardly ever post on your journal or comment on mine. 4) I've been skipping over your posts for months because the content doesn't particularly interest me.

I'm sorry to people I've recently friended in H_E friending memes for saying I wanted friends and then a few months later deciding I needed to cut down on friends. I hope you won't take it personally, because it's not. I didn't de-friend anyone because I have a personal problem with them. I'm sorry to anyone who's offended, this is just something I needed to do so I could feel like my friends list was manageable once more. I wish you all very happy internet lives, and if we meet again in some community somewhere I hope you will not hold this against me. You are all wonderful people.

All that being said, I'm officially returning from hiatus.

Second post today! This post only applies to people living in the U.S., so if that is not you, feel free to skip this. I know lots of people are probably tired of all the election talk, but too fucking bad. I really care about this, so I'm going to subject you to it. Also, if you really are that tired of it, it's all behind a cut so you don't have to hate on me. If you are not voting tomorrow (and have not early-voted), NOT COOL. My pretty awesome boyfriend wrote this post that I am blatantly stealing. But what are significant others for but to steal from? That's my theory, anyhow. Plus, I agree with everything he says so it works. The post is geared towards people who wouldn't want McCain as president but are not voting, as the title suggests, so if you like John McCain this doesn't apply to you.

How John McCain Could Win the Election.Collapse )

ETA: I made the post public, so if you feel like linking, I would love you forever! The more people that see it, the better.
