My default icon was a Christmas tree, so that tells you how long it's been since I've been here. But, like I said in my last post (in November!) I just haven't been on LiveJournal. Tumblr is my go-to site these days, though lately I've been staying away from that because it's much easier to get spoiled for things (*ahem* The Avengers *ahem*) than it was on here, and I don't want to be spoiled for that particular movie.
I just can't give up LiveJournal, though. I've thought about deleting this account, or deactivating it, or whatever, but this is the place where my love for fandom really cultivated. This is where I found a group of people who loved the unpopular ship on a soap opera and met some really great people because of it. This is one of the first places I really felt I could be myself, not the people my friends and family thought I was. It's a very special place for me and I just can't end it yet.
My real life is going okay; my job, though part-time, is one that I love (and that's a first for me). I'm just worried that there's no full-time position in my near future, since the only way I would get a full-time job is if my boss left. And she's made it clear she's not leaving until she retires, which is in about 2-3 years. I don't know if I can wait until then, and as patient as my parents have been with me, I'm sure they want their nearly 30 year old daughter out of the house sooner rather than later. So, if nothing changes in the next year, then I'm going to start looking for new jobs. That way I'll have enough experience in this position to find a similar one.
I've been playing a lot of Sims 4 lately; ever since the expansion pack came out it's been my obsession! It's so much fun and I've also been really into watching Let's Play videos on YouTube. If I had the equipment, time and inclination to do so, I would probably start making my own. But since I don't, I'm probably going to be starting at Sims Tumblr page to post pictures. It will probably have my username erikssiren in it, so if you want you should come check it out (I will probably post a link here, if anyone's interested).
Until my next update
