Life is a strange combination of crazy and monotonous. I mostly just work and go home and work again, with a little bit of sleep thrown in (though I've been sleeping like crap).

But things I have recently discovered I enjoy:

* Hockey! This is very strange for me, and yet there it is. THEY ARE ALL JUST TOO ADORABLE OKAY. And it's nice to just stream the games onto my computer and ignore the world while it's on, so. My work is partners with the Orlando Solar Bears team, and [ profile] imthelobster and I are getting free tickets into a game this coming Tuesday, which should be fun. I'm expecting the seats to be crappy, but whatever, we're getting free food too :D

* Knitting! This is less surprising. What is surprising is that I have finished several things and am still working on it, though. On Superbowl Sunday there was a big sale at one of the local specialty yarn shops, and [ profile] lonelyarcher and I went and spent way too much saved a lot of money! I got an interchangeable circular needle set that I AM IN LOVE WITH, along with way too much yarn. I'm on Ravelry, if anyone cares about that sort of thing.

* Doctor Who! Which doesn't even surprise me, let's be honest. I always knew I'd love it, if I could just get around to watching it. I'm near the beginning of Martha's run now, and we've been circulating between mainlining that, re-watching all of SG-1, and trying to keep up with currently running shows as well. We watch a lot of tv...

In any case, I always say I'm going to try and keep up with LJ again, and I never do... but I still read my friends list! It's just hard when hardly anyone else updates anymore, too. We shall see!

This so much. And I try to update a non-LJ blog, but writing is hard for me lately. If we could just get all of LJ onto hockey, knitting, and sci-fi shows...

I suck at non-LJ blogs. Like, I use tumblr and such, but that is so not a space to post long, personal entries and such (at least not to me).

I should start posting photos of my knitting though...

I have been having the same experience with Doctor Who. I'm about a season past where you are, but I'm really enjoying it! Let's get more people back to LJ... I tried to get into tumblr because it seems like all my friends are using it, but it's so relentlessly, unapologetically public that I can't stand to actually post anything, and at the same time it's so regurgitative (which is probably not actually a word!) that reading it gives me a headache. LJ for evah!

I actually really love tumblr, it's just a completely different type of platform than LJ.

I think the things that tumblr is good for are the things that I am not interested in doing on social media, so it doesn't work for me. Great for artists, though. I know a lot of awesome artists who promote their work on tumblr.

I keep forgetting to check my flist lately. Hopefully I can get back to both posting and checking. (Right now I'm more or less succeeding at my goal of posting at lest once a week.)
