I'm still (slowly) working on that Mystrade fic. I'll finish it one day, I promise. For the moment, I'll just share an LJ infographic that makes me sound ancient. XD

Ah, the good old days... )

I did it. I imported all my LJ entries on Dreamwidth. I will still be using LJ as my primary journal, but seeing how many problems that site has had lately (even last night, ffs), having a back-up makes me feel a little less worried. This is my first crossposted entry. Yay?

It feels weird using DW after all this time on LJ (this year will be exactly 10 years I've been on Livejournal). My paid account expires in September and I really don't know if I'm going to renew it. I read somewhere that paid accounts will be changed, something about paying only for the options you use and if that's the case I'll only pay for extra icon space, because that's the only service I use. That and the custom mood theme. But, just in case, I started deleting a few icons, the old ones I don't use anymore. As for the rest, well, we'll see.

Aaand LJ starts off the new year with a spectacular fail. I'm getting the occasional comment notification but I haven't been able to access the site for days. I still haven't replied to the comments on my H50 fanart, I'll do that as soon as LJ gets back to normal. I should really back up my entries over at Dreamwidth just in case.

Dear flist, if you can read this: HAPPY NEW YEAR! I spent New Year's Eve at a friend's place, I finally met her two kittens and had a nice, quiet evening. I don't have resolutions and, unlike last year, I don't really have anything to look forward to. Most of 2012 revolved around the summer workshop, while I don't have anything planned for 2013. I feel a little hollow compared to last year, but I guess you can't have that level of excitement every year, right? I just hope things at work will get better. A new, better-paid job wouldn't be bad either. I like this job, but the situation has become ridiculous. So fingers crossed and may 2013 be a lucky year!

Well, thank you for messing up most of my albums LJ. Especially the one I used the most, which disappeared along with a few others. Now I will have to waste HOURS to try and find all the pics you scattered all over the other albums. Not to mention all the preview pictures are gone (can you even have preview pics with the new scrapbook?)

Also, having sub-galleries was a very useful feature, having a "Concerts" folder containing subfolders for the specific concerts was very neat. And of course you went and deleted that, so now I have 50+ folders all over the place.

No, really, well done LJ, well done.

And I'm not even complaining about the 28 pictures that got lost in the process, it feels like a tiny loss compared to the rest of this mess.

I have a cute little blue dragon on my profile page! Thank you, [ profile] malfoy_manor12! :)

I may be a guest in a program a friend of mine hosts on a web-radio. Nothing's sure yet, we came up with the idea just a few hours ago, but if I do, I'll need the help of my flist when I put together the playlist. I already have a few songs in mind, I'll keep you updated on how things evolve. :)
gothikmaus: (*pout*)
...and then LJ exploded.

So, the recent comments page drama. LJ has gone through a lot of changes in the years I've used the site and I got used to all of them. If I have to be honest, I quite like the new comments box design. I don't mind not having a subject line because I hardly ever used it, but I can see how that will be a problem for kink-memes and comment-fics in general: people have developed a way of prompting/writing/posting based on a certain site structure, only for said structure to change, apparently without a reason.

Personally, what I really don't like is the disappearance of the "Preview" button, because I get quite OCD when I post comments and I have to check and double check them, even if I don't use html but just plain text. And the visual way of choosing icons is confusing. The idea of seeing the icons is nice, but having them in alphabetical order would've been better. Or at least not shifting order depending on which one you last used. While I wait and see how things evolve, I'm using a custom comment page. Which I don't really like, but it will do.

People are saying they'll leave Livejournal and switch to Dreamwidth. I've been using LJ since 2003: I started my blogging adventure on Deadjournal, because you still needed invite codes to create a Livejournal account back then, I cross-posted on both sites for a while once I got an LJ-code, but when my friends on DJ stopped posting, I abandoned the site: I had no reason to keep checking DJ and it wasn't worth keeping 2 identical blogs. I don't want to do the same thing again. Livejournal is my happy little fannish playground, where I write, I post fanart and I interact with people with whom I share the same fannish obsessions. I will leave only if my whole flist leaves.

But after reading this I became a little paranoid and since you can create a DW account without an invite code this week (and that can't be a coincidence, right?), I got myself one just in case. I'm [personal profile] gothikmaus over there too. Hopefully that page will stay nice and empty. But you never know.

Isn't my new mood theme the sweetest thing ever? >_< Found at [ profile] cute_moodthemes.

It's finally sunny again. If I can manage to make my inner teenage fangirl shut up, everything will be fine. (Stop being a hopeless romantic sap, you silly girl!)
gothikmaus: (Na gut)
I was fed up with black and grey, so, new layout. And my new default icon fits my current mood perfectly. A few days ago, after much thinking over, I decided that, if I want to work in the events/music field, I'll have to try everything, even things that are utterly hopeless. So I sent my CV to KKT. Yes, the agency that manages the tour of Die Ärzte. Hey, I sent my CV to the biggest agencies in Milan, why not to KKT?

Of course five minutes ago I got an email telling me that for this year they are "bereits voll besetzt".

I am not surprised in the least. Na gut...

Other than that, my first day back to work hasn't been too bad so far, there's still little to do and tomorrow's a holiday. Bah.
gothikmaus: (Bela - In Goth We Trust)
The other day Gabe (you know who I'm talking about), told me that someone proposed to him to become a professional gigolo once. Enough said.

I finally made a new layout. It pretty much reflects my current mood.

And a meme stolen from [ profile] schwimmerin.

01. Think of the first word that comes to mind when you think of me.
02. Go to Google Images and search for that word.
03. Reply to this post with one of the pictures on the first page of results (don't tell me the word).
04. Put this in your own journal so that I can do the same.

I found it quite hard to think of a word for her, the first things that come to my mind when I think of friends are images and sounds and smells and shared memories, but rarely words. I'm weird.

PS My throat is sore. D:

Message to Sammy: I'm very, very sorry, but there's no way I'll be able to finish your story by tomorrow. I've had a shitty and busy day at work and it's going to be equally as shitty and busy tomorrow, I need to rewrite the beginning and I really don't feel like doing it now, all I wanna do is go to bed and lose consciousness.

I fail at life.

9:15 AM: I turn on my laptop, all happy because there's very little to do at work these days and I have all the time I need to write more fic, and check my email. 23 unread LJ comments. What the fuck, people!? XD

Anyway, a few months back I heard a quote from a book ("La fine è il mio inizio", by Tiziano Terzani), it was about discovering cities not through tourist guides, but reading old books in which the story takes place there, and for some reason that reminded of Farin. I wanted to find the quote and send it to him once he starts getting emails again (probably in a couple of days, when DÄ go on tour for the festival shows), but I can't find it anywhere! And it's too late to actually read the book and find those lines on my own, it's almost 500 pages long, I'm far too lazy to do it before I leave on Sunday. Me and my damn procrastinating. Oh well, I'll just read it when I'm back from Prag, find the quote I need and send it to him next autumn, he'll surely be receiving emails during his solo tour.
