Steph's LJ turns 10 - Vox Audita Perrit, Literra Scripta Manet....
The heard word is lost, the written letter remains...
Steph's LJ turns 10
This journal turned 10 years old today. So let's start with an appropriate celebration gif:

It took me half an hour of sniffing around on Tumblr to find a gif that would somehow sum up the celebratory mood and be relevant to this blog. Internet, I am seriously disappoint at the lack of Ian Hart gifs online, the 'TROLL IN THE DUNGEON' moment excluded. I've had to settle for another long-time crush, Stephen Colbert.

I created this blog when I was 2 months into my last year of high school. I can't bring myself to go back and look at the posts, becuase I cringe to think of the way I talked then. I do remember that there was a lot of fangirl squee and quizzes in that first year. And there was angst about other assorted things such as exams and Andrew, the guy I was seeing on and off at the time. I've matured rather painfully since then...I sometimes feel embarrassed at how I used to write back then, but eh. It's the way a teenage girl talks.

In the 10 years after that, I've completed my undergraduate degree, did my honours and after 6 years of working part-time in bookselling, finally got a full-time job last year. Of my 9 nieces and nephews, 7 were born over this decade. I also dealt with the death of my younger sister- it has been nearly 5 years since she passed away, and I still feel her absence, particularly when I'm posting here since she herself was a blogger and commented on these posts when I allowed her to.

Hm, what else....I suppose this has been a relatively quiet corner of the blogging world. Only a few people I know IRL this place exists, some of them found it by accident and some people I gave the link to. I don't really talk about my current employers here....I think if they knew I was blogging, they wouldn't be so well disposed to it, so when I have updated, it's been fandom stuff and other areas of my life. Not that my job is really worth discussing....it's a desk job, and there are moments when I have to sit back and think of $$$ to keep going.

I would like to think I'll be continuing with this blog in the years to come, even if I don't post frequently. Livejournal is still my first port of call when I get home and turn on my laptop. I still read comms and yes, all of you on my friends list. I don't comment, but I am still reading. I hope I'm in a different place for the next milestone....I'm not unsatisified with my current lot in life, but I think I could do better, and I will work towards that, even if it takes baby steps. And as the past ten years were, it too will all probably be documented here, with a bit of luck.


(I like to think Chaveulin's reaction is how everybody reading this self-indulgent waffle feels. SORRY GUYS! :D)

Current Music: Boy and Bear - Golden Jubilee

It's been a long ten years.

And we've still only shared breathing space for all of 5 minutes in that time. :)

Here's to another 10 years of quietly existing in the outdated section of the blogosphere. :)

Congrats! :D I should make some gifs once I get back on Tumblr (I gave it up for Lent). I got on LJ just around the time when The Hound of the Baskervilles w/IH and Richard Roxburgh came out...that honestly feels like FOREVER ago.

I'd complain about never hearing from you anymore, except you post more often than me. Oops.

I can't stop staring at dancing!Colbert. It's...hypnotic.
