The Kmart across the street from my apartment is closing ;w; I knew this was inevitable, since it's pretty much guaranteed that the whole Sears/Kmart corporation is gonna go under eventually, but I'm still so sad. I was desperately heartbroken when the Kmart of my childhood closed a few years ago!!! I thought this one was safe because it's consistently busy....I guess I was wrong ;w;

I'm trying to look on the bright side and take it as a time to do some dead & dying retail photography (like I did when Toys R Us was going out of business) but still!!! I didn't want it to end like this...I'm not ready to say goodbye D:

I have a weird fixation on Kmart (not Sears though, just Kmart) brought on by hours and hours reading about dead malls & etc. But now I'm in too deep; the highlight of my last trip to NYC was visiting one of the Kmart locations there. It was fancy and I had loads of fun! I took a million pictures like a huge dorky tourist :D

But now I'm just like fuck fuck fuck why is mine closing??? We actually do a fair amount of shopping there because it's literally across the street and well priced. They don't always have what we need but they have a lot, and I'm just...sad ;w;

Day 4 | Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them.

I've been trying this a lot, actually, since I've rejoined Dreamwidth, and it's been nice!! I'm also gonna use this space to just talk a little about how important fandom friendships have been in my life. Outside the internet, I cosplay and go to cons, and most of the close friends I have now are people I met because I went out of my way to meet new people while at cons. Hell, I met my wife through a friend I made at a con, and if that doesn't show how important meeting new people can be, I dunno what does!

Online, I actually tend to be a little more nervous about talking to people, but in the past few years I've really put forth the effort to meet new friends through fandom. And I've gotten some fantastic experiences out of it :D
