I'm a slave to the system I inhabit. To my good and bad habits. To my have-nots and my have-to-have-its. I'm a civilized savage.

This is a step-by-step guide to using LJ cuts.UPDATE (2/17/2016):
LJ updated its interface, and the "Rich Text" tab is now called the "Visual Editor" tab. Despite the interface and name change, the steps in this guide still applies. I will not be updating the tutorial itself, since it's still pretty much the same.( the lj-cut guideCollapse )
I hope this helped.
i haven't been around these parts much lately, except when posting for aday comms and for other modly duties, and the occasional peek into fandom news and downloads. i have decided to use this account now for merely fandom purposes, and will not maintain this lj any longer. you might still see a few posts here and there, but these posts would be fandom posts (essays, fan accounts and the like) which would be crossposted to communities anyway, so there would be no need to keep this lj friended.
keep in touch, guys. i'm on aim, msn, y!m and plurk. (and since this post is set to public, you can just comment if you want to know my usernames.) :) comments are screened.
i haven't been around much, and when i am, i barely comment. there's been lots of things going on, the good outweighing the bad, and for this i am truly grateful. it's the little blessings that keep me going — friends and family are love.
in the next few days i'll update about my life in the last few weeks, the good and the bad, and the fun and the sad.
i've been meaning to do this for a while because i know i suck at being around lately. let this be a friends cut in reverse
: if you feel like you should remove me from your flist for any reason, you should go ahead and do it. it makes me sad that things had to come to this, but i'll understand, and there will be no hard feelings.
i've been pondering quite a bit lately, and idk lol. must be rainy weather.coming soon:
photos and stories of my new short, red hair, and of limdo_luciel

i woke up in a good mood today, thinking of posting something rambly and fun.
then i read zephkun
's journal and learn that one of our longtime friends has tested positive for lupus.
we've all known each other since primary school, and i've loved her forever... it just seems so surreal — idk. i feel like crying but no tears are coming out.
i promise to be strong for you, frascella. please be well. i'd give you my health if i could. i'd give anything to make it better.
Lee Sungmin, Super Junior
So Shinn and I were discussing how we hate how Sungmin is portrayed in fanon, and it made me think. I'm all for AUs and stuff (which could allow a bit of out-of-character-ness — LOL I have no other word for this, sorry. XD), but I like AUs best when the boys are still grounded to their actual personalities. This is where the portrayal of Sungmin in most of fanfics, AU or otherwise, annoys me most of the time. He is often written as the cute, bunny-loving creature that's just, idk, sickeningly sweet. It annoys me because there is more to Sungmin than just pink. ( Analysis, WTF. XDCollapse )
hello to the new people on my flist! ♥ i hope to know you better! :) yay for new friends.
as the cold causes the coffee to condense
but not before the caffeine short-circuits
a silent storm raging in a cup,
bottled-up emotions disguised as foam kissing the mouth.
drink up, crush the cup, and move on—
(same time tomorrow?
here is your sandwich, to go.
here is poem one of a series (which i'm calling "rush hour") that revolves round everyday life, using coffee and cafes as metaphors to my madness. ._.
now i need to write the tabloa i owe ginny and the rest of at a standstill's chapter 2.
i realize that this is how i love. i writewritewrite for the people i srsly adore. and i realize that i would end up writing fic or poetry for (or about) everyone on my flist sooner or later. this one is for kuro, whom i love dearly, and whom i terriblyterribly miss.
(a remix of
'to the sea
and it's like a hammer to the heart
(this is how it breaks)
when the world takes
for granted, and that
i take the world for less.
songs (secrets) spilling
against unforgiving stone.
but there is absolution
and there is nothing else worth having but your heart.
