Guinea Pigs: Me and Bozzie

About this LiveJournal.

February 20, 2012: Due to annoying Russian spambots, I've disabled commenting on my LJ for the time being to non-friends. So if you want to friend me, please send me a message and let me know you're actually a real person. Heh. Thanks.

What you should know before friending me.

Guinea Pigs: Me and Bozzie

So I haven't been here in forever. And honestly I don't think I can come back here. It sounds dramatic to say this, but I met Robyn through this site and being here without her just...hurts. Still.

I met a lot of awesome people through Livejournal, and I haven't been around in ages and I don't even know who IS still around. But for those of you who are, or who are kind of, or who are interested in reconnecting with me, I've moved over to Insanejournal. I do mostly RP over there, but I've decided to try journaling there, as well.

There aren't as many layout options as there are (or were, I don't really know anymore) here, but you do get 100 free icons for every account. So if you need a code because you want to join, give me a shout and I'll help you out with one.

I'm galaxyofmuses over there -- though the name will be changing as soon as I can settle on one that feels right.

So if you want to chat with me or read my thoughts, etc, go here. :) Hope you're all well!

Tomorrow is Robyn's birthday.

She would have been twenty-five.

I feel the need to do something to mark the occasion even though she's not here, but I have no ideas. Maybe you guys do. Do you have any songs that make you think of her...? I'd like to make a playlist.

Exercising Updates.

I walked a mile yesterday on the treadmill in 24 minutes. Not great time-wise but I'll get there. I have to keep reminding myself that this is only week 3 and my body is just not ready for more advanced stuff yet. I had been walking/lifting weights six days a week and resting on Sundays but I had to take a day off from both today because I was SO sore. So I got up and did 25 minutes of yoga instead.

I'm on this site called Fitocracy, which is really awesome and you can get really helpful advice and encouragement. Are any of you also on there? If so, come friend me at :)

Very sad about the bombing yesterday, but trying not to focus as much on it today as I did yesterday. I think I was shaking for about five hours. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with the victims and their loved ones.

I almost didn't do this, this year. Heh.

Make a post (public, friends-locked, filtered... whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV"). The important thing is to make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) can get in touch with you. Your home address is not required!
Make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ so that the holiday joy will spread.

Surf around your friends list (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now, here's the important part...

If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes one person's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use - or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free - do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf - to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not - it's your call. There are no guarantees with this project, and no strings attached. Just... wish, and it might come true. Give and you might receive. You'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

If you need my address, let me know.

Also, if you want to exchange cards with me, drop me a line here, and tell me! :)

So I'm part of an online scavenger hunt called GISHWHES, along with fourteen other people on my team. Just by going here and pledging to do ONE random act of kindness before 2012 is over, you'll help me in this venture! My email address (which you'll need to complete the pledge):

Also? If you leave me a comment saying you pledged, I'll throw all of your names into a hat and draw a winner and three people will win a prize of some kind. Could be a mixed CD, could be jewelry I've made, could be something else.

So help me, maybe? :)

Help me be creative?

So I have a training I'm presenting next week (on Wednesday). I usually give out prizes during this training, but this time I want to do something a little different. I'm wanting to put together small de-stress kits for the seven people taking the training. Sort of along the lines of this. But while it's cute, I'm wanting to put together something a little more useful and more creative.

So if someone was going to give YOU a de-stress kit, what would you hope was in it?
