So, as you can see, I imported my much-neglected LJ to Dreamwidth. It's been a chance to read over my entries and reflect, as I was basically using my LJ to keep up with my friends list. My profile is so hilariously out of date. I guess it's as good a time as any to do a life update...

1. I'm now a fully qualified secondary school teacher and am working part time at a girls' school. There are ups and downs as there would be anywhere, but generally I'm loving it.

2. I've gotten back into reading in a big way and I'm following several Youtubers who focus on books and book reviews.

3. I'm no longer as fannishly inclined as I used to be. I haven't written fic in over a year and I don't read much fic either since I got back into reading several novels a month. The last time I had a fandom slump like this it took falling into another fandom to get me out of it. Maybe that will happen. I'm still into the MCU but I feel pretty burnt out on the canon and the fandom became such a nasty place for a while. Send me back to 2012, at least then we only had the annoying Loki fans and Superfamily to deal with.

4. That said, I get hit with major Sailor Moon feels every few months, it seems. I will take this fandom and Haruka/Michiru to the graaaaaaaave. I know Crystal got renewed, but I don't know when it will be airing. Hopefully this June, like previous seasons. *fingers crossed*

5. There's... not really much to say. I'm working, I'm still with The Boyfriend, my life is finally at a point where it feels pretty stable. But I do feel like there's something missing, like on the days where I'm not working I'm sort of... drifting. Maybe it's the absence of fandom? I definitely feel like I need some sort of personal project or goal outside of work. Every year I go in with lofty ambitions, and then I just drift from place to place.

I feel you so much on all of this. I've gotten heavily into original fiction and conlanging again and in fact am trying hard not to default on the one and only fannish commitment I've made this year, a Be the First fic.

Good to see you, and I'll definitely be reading along wherever you're at. :hugs:
