The last few days... interesting, certainly. Don't feel the job of trying to lower my stress has worked though.
Mum grumbled at me a bit yesterday, saying I spend too much time online. Probably true, but as I've mentioned in posts before, there's someone whose company I enjoy a great deal and who desires to meet me to see if the same feelings we display online are there in person. So obviously when I see her online I enjoy talking to her, and I guess that's a little selfish of me, being inconsiderate to the family, and I need to stop that.
A few friends aren't exactly having easy times of things... but to some of them, there's no words of advice. They'll get through it. Life does go on, and if things go wrong, but you think you know how to make it right, it's far easier (and better for your morale) to dust yourself off and prepare to try again, than tell the world you're a failure.
What I want to do... is edit my livejournal (and friends page) so I can set it as my homepage, and use the space at the top currently used for blurb, to link to things I use. Google, a few main favourites I use, and so on. Links whose URLs won't change and I go to frequently. I'll have to ask a few people about this.
I feel I've hit a bit of a lazy spell. I actually think... the more the idea of just going to visit my friend (and finding a B&B near to her for a few days) intrigues me. I think my family would feel insulted though. After being told I'm not around them enough, if they find I'm not near them to ring in 2004, they'd be displeased. It seems a family tradition to show a lot of care for this, yet I'm never too bothered with it. I think London's inability to organise a decent celebration to ring in the new year makes it seem less interesting to me.
Now, I shush.
