My 2017 in LJ

How long has this feature been on LJ?

EDIT IN JANUARY 2019: Wait, so the image automatically gets replaced with the next year's version every year? Lame. Luckily, I have a compulsive tendency to tag nearly every number in every entry regardless of importance to the subject matter, so I know from this that my actual stats for 2017 were 102 entries posted and 1,145 comments and likes received. Unless the comments and likes thing was just comments last time.

Whoa, fast commenting! :)

Anyway, yeah, I figured it was just added today but I wasn't sure. I don't think I knew about the similar 18th anniversary one until a few days afterward. :)

LOL! I had just logged onto my friends feed and it must have been pretty close to when you posted too. I thought the LJ anniversary one was pretty cool too.

You should read the news post about the little infographic. Boy are people salty over it. I get not wanting LJ to feel like Facebook but I honestly don't think it's like Facebook.

I'm not going to read the news post. The comments would probably make me depressed again. :(

I like Facebook (though not as much now that it's become a lot harder to avoid posts I don't like reading, like political ones), so I don't mind this or LiveJournal's likes feature. :)

On the other hand, I can't say I'm fond of LJ having hashtags now (well, not now now, but whenever they added it, which I think was this year) because I personally feel like hashtags only belong on Twitter. And it's annoying that uses of the # symbol in old entries/comments are often automatically made into hashtags, even useless ones like #1 or #9 - I've actually been replacing number signs with sharps in some of my entries/comments (e.g. ♯1) because of it. Even this is just a minor annoyance for me, though - I definitely wouldn't leave LJ just because of it. :)

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
