Doesn't quite have the same ring to it as State of the Union, but it'll do for my purposes.
Just flagging up a wee change of direction for this currently languishing journal. This was my fandom journal, when fandom meant HP, then I went off abroad where the combination of low amounts of web access, always, always using computers in public and almost always having someone reading over my shoulder because "ooh, shiny, English stuff" meant my fandom time was soon none-existant, and actually...I didn't miss it too much. And now, well, I don't really have any HP stories I want to tell, and I don't have the energy to get back into fandom actively (which really means writing), especially not with the final year of my degree coming up.
What I do miss, however, is writing full stop. And having also recently rediscovered Star Trek (thank god for Sky One reruns *g*), I kinda want to focus on other things for a while. So, expect more original writing (mostly reponses to those daily15 style communities), expect a bit of Star Trek, expect perhaps very small amounts of HP, expect me talking about movies and such that I've seen and liked. If you're not loving it, feel free to defriend. After a year teaching reluctant French teenagers English, I assure you that my ego can take it. *g*
And the real life is still happening, over at jess_strasbourg
So, yes. I'm back. Sort of.
