why hello thar lj


Hello livejournal, my name is Killian, and this is my introductory entry...sort of???

These days I do most of my fandom-ing on my tumblr but I've recently come back here to make personal posts. I missed the organized journal aspect of LJ & the privacy options. So I've returned~~

anyway, this journal is about 30% public and 70% private....barely anyone else uses LJ anymore, but feel free to drop a comment if you'd like to be added :D

mini life update

I can update this or write in my diary, and guess which one is more convenient? XD Someday I'll actually upkeep all aspects of my life, but.....not today, lmao.

Last week I got my first vaccine shot!! Pat got his yesterday and Liz gets theirs tomorrow, so we'll all be fully vaccinated around the same time :D I'm looking forward to a better summer than last year, at the very least!!!

Speaking of that- Liz and I went to the mall for the first time in like, a year, and caught up with some of the employees at the Hot Topic, who were super excited to see us :D The store manager is fantastic and I've actually known her since college, she's been there so long. So that was really nice ;w;

We're once again short-staffed at work because a bunch of people called out and some of our newly hired people aren't as reliable as expected >< So that's been fun!!! Probably gonna have to work an extra day again this week, which I'm super not thrilled about. Just....bluh. I dunno, is it so hard to find people who work out????

In better news, I actually wrote and posted a drabble this week!!! I joined [community profile] chenqing_100 and managed to write something for the first prompt. I'm really hoping I can use drabbles to get back into writing more regularly again, but we'll see. Work burnout has been murderous, and I don't really see it changing any time soon...

(no subject)

In the middle of working on the order, I decided it was time to fix all the images on my LJ account, because....11 am on Sunday is the best time to fix all the fucking photobucket links, sure!!!! Cool!!!!!!!

This involved screaming in frustration because I couldn't find where I had all the customizations for my graphics journal over there. Like. Okay. Cool. I bought a paid account for my main journal, thinking that would let me edit the style layers.


So then I had to also buy a paid account for my graphics journal because....apparently I was just throwing money away when I was 21???? And I thought putting all the images and shit in a custom layer instead of CSS what a good idea????????

drags hands down face

Anyway. I'm gonna try to get back to actually working at work, what a concept XD

icon making :0

Can I just say how glad I am that the art of icon making has not been lost and is in fact, still doing pretty well here on DW? It's inspiring me to actually share the icons I make instead of just....using them....and never posting them elsewhere.... I'll probably make a few more before I post them but like!!! It's good to see!!!!

Currently desperately trying to write, so I guess making icons is just procrastinating in a creative way? XD

flashback survey~~

I found this in the depths of my archive from late 2009/early 2010, and I figured that....I haven't updated this in forever but I should fill out a survey so I can think about how much things have change for me- and so much of it is for the better!!! Old one found here~~

waves at dreamwidth


Fuck I haven't updated since before Katsucon, whoops!! I would like to write a proper Katsu recap but I don't have the brains for it right now :T And I'd really just like to say hi to dreamwidth and post a few minor updates.

-work has been insanely busy but we've had record breaking sales so like, yay
-I got a small part time job at the jewelry studio Pat works at, doing photo editing and listing pieces for sale online
-Liz dyed my hair and it's a beautiful bright red/maroon/purple experience now, I love it
-I started working on a bullet journal planner and I'm already way behind on it, but I'm having fun
-Ritalin has been really helpful but I'm still forgetful as fuck, so that's where I still struggle

Basically I need to get my shit organized but getting my shit organized is a continual struggle where I feel like there just aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done but also have downtime to chill. Ya know, the usual!!

Once I outline it better, I'll return with a katsu update/recap/whatever. It was an amazingly fun time though, so it is good news. I just did a lot at it so there's a lot to write!!!

kh prompts

........good to know that kingdom100 never deletes claims!! I claimed zemyx back in 2006, wrote two things, and then fucked off, because I'm terrible at completing things. But now with the release of kh3, I'm like, super jazzed to write a bunch of kh fic again!!!! So I was gonna just use the prompt table again and complete it as a personal project, but I figured I should see what happened to my claim. And it's technically still active XD

So. Hm. Guess I'll really be back on my bullshit, then XD I found my original post of the prompt table, but I think I'm gonna repost it once I actually start writing. I don't want to go digging back that far every time I need it.

Seriously though. Hoping these adhd meds keep working so that I can actually complete tasks, plz.

A return to writing!

I finally did some writing yesterday!! I've been struggling with it - which happens every winter, but that doesn't mean I have to like it - and failing to even write basic outlines. But yesterday was the breaking point, I guess!! I wrote some juhaku at work and then came home and wrote weird vanven cannibalism, because I like to stay on brand.

Today's my day off so I'm making an effort to type up the vanven at least, because the rough draft is done. The juhaku is....barely started, but I've got a lot of ideas for it now :D

Other than that, I wanna do some more housework. Today I get to up the dose of my ADHD meds and that's prooooobably gonna help. Or at least I hope it will XD Fingers crossed!!

hello february!!

Welp, January pretty much flew by, with work, birthday, and KH3...It was a busy time! Now is the season of....even busier work :T Valentines Day is a wild time for adult stores, for some odd reason.

I beat KH3 uhhhh Wednesday night/Thursday morning? It was like 3 am, okay, and I fucking beat it early enough that the secret ending wasn't available for download yet!!! I was like oh come on, it's the 31st already, gimme what I earned for playing on Proud XD This is a spoiler free post tho; I have a lot of thoughts but I need time to ruminate on them more.

Also, finally did my check in for [community profile] getyourwordsout and mehhh I'm not happy with how much I wrote in January, but it was better than nothing. I always struggle in the winter, but I wanna change that some day. I have some shit I need to get done in the next week.

SPEAKING OF THAT ACTUALLY!!! I started taking ADHD meds yesterday, and I already feel good about it!! I got a ton of housework done that I'd been putting off, without even stressing about it. I'm just on a super low dose for the first few days, so it'll be a bit before I get the full effect. However, I'm very hopeful! I want to be able to do things!!!!!!!!!
