This is my semi-official return to LJ. Before I do anything else, I feel like I need to do this:
I am sorry. I am so, so sorry to everyone I offended, pissed off, or (most importantly) hurt here on LJ or in Real Life. For a really long time I was so desperately unhappy and disconnected from my feelings that I did a lot of insanely shitty things without stopping to think what effect they'd have on others. I have to own that, as much as it's really unpleasant to do so. I'm not trying to excuse my behavior, and I'm going to be working at making amends privately, but I wanted to put it out there into the ether:
I did a lot of wrong things, and that was awful of me, and I am sorry.
I've had this LJ for eight and a half years, and I've been on LJ for a decade, and it kind of blows my mind how much the world and my life have changed in that time. So for everyone who doesn't share a fandom with me any more and doesn't really want to do the whole LJ-friends thing with me now that I'm going to be posting more regularly, I'm not going to be hurt at all if you want to defriend me. My weird post-graduate life is mostly full of K-Pop, getting ready to teach abroad, and doing the prelim work for writing a series of novels. Even I bore me, so I'm seriously not going to be upset if you think I'm a boring boringface. I know.
