this post has been un-sugar coated.

yes, i hath returned. i couldn't completely delete my journal, anyway, although i became so unenamored with things in livejournal and my circle of 'friends' that i had to do .. SOMETHING. and since i couldn't even stand to look at aubkabob any longer, i deleted it.

what triggered it, you ask? (i knew you would.) basically, after working 50-60 hours a week over the holidays, getting little to no sleep, and stressing out over going back to school after a 12 year absence, things were a bit strenuous. you will remember, too, that i was working so much that i even pulled an almost 24 hour shift, getting little sleep, and going in for another however many hours. i put in over 40 hours within 3 1/2 days at one job, neveryoumind how many i put in at the other job, too.

shortly after my last post on the first, some of you had the GALL to tell me i was an awful friend because i hadn't been reading your journal, or responding to posts or responses. one person occasionally, i could understand, but suddenly many of you were coming out of the woodwork to tell me what a horrible person i was because i wasn't stopping in my busy REAL life in order to pet and pamper your egos.

you know what? i have a life. granted, my life isn't overly exciting, but it is a LIFE. i do adore my online friends greatly. i feel closer to some of you than i do to most people IN this real life i lead. however, the way i tend to my journal... remember. it is MY journal. i have stated several times that even in good, slow times, i can tend to take up to six months to respond to things. if you don't like it? there's the door. i will not be offended if you delete me because you feel that we don't have enough interaction. i WILL, however, be offended if you decide to attack ME.

i'm certain that things will certainly change now that i am in school, too. last week, i worked 42 hours from 330 pm to late night, as WELL as went to school from 7 am until noon, EVERY DAY. my life is now consisting of only work and school and very little sleep. i'm certain that the topic of my posts will change, too, as i have realized that i actually REALLY like this school thing, and thusly will be blabbering about it quite extensively. if you don't like it? again, defriend me, and no offense will be taken.

this post may seem harsh, and for that, i do NOT apologize. this is also not geared towards one person, but towards all of you. if you do not like me and how i keep my journal or deal with my responses, this is your easy way out. i have zero time or emotions to devote to pampering your asses. if you are willing to take me as i am, good and the bad, and are able to have civilized conversations, by all means, feel free to stay.

Screw them, they need to get out of the house more often if your posting or lack of commenting bothers them that much.

glad you're back! I figured it was the stress of your busy schedule... some thing having to give.

you know me! i just LOVE to burn the candle at both ends and proclaim how fabulously busy i am.... until i get overly stressed out and curl into a ball and hide from the big scary outside world.

it's a vicious circle, it is.

Welcome back
I got worried when your journal got deleted, mostly because you had been working insanely hard for a while and I was worried the lack of sleep gotten you sick. This is the bad side with "internet friends" when they don't show up on IM/delete their journal or whatever. You often don't have any other way to contact them to make sure they are ok. I haven't known your for that long, but I enjoy reading your entries.
I'm sorry about the drama, I will have to say the opposite. I'm amazed that you found the time and energy to post at all with that schedule.
I wont lie and say that I don't care about comments to my journal, in fact I love them :). But I don't *demand* them!
Good Luck with school, I think school is fun, but it eats all your time.
When somebody delete their journal I'm most likely to keep them for quite a while to see if they come back.

I was out of town and when I got back I saw your journal was gone, so I figured I missed something. I'm adding you back onto my other name (miasays). I've always loved your journal, and I totally understand how you feel. There are people here who become obsessed with LJ and don't realize that people have life OFF of the computer. I got deleted by 2 people while I was on my HONEYMOON. Guess they can't tolerate me staying at a hotel without internet access.

Talk about WHATEVER you want (duh, you don't need me to say that lol) and fuck the naysayers.

I was wondering what happened to you and what prompted you deleting your journal. I have added you back since you have reinstated it if that is okay?

We all have a life outside of LJ. It looks to me that you have a very, very busy life right now. No one should fault you for not commenting. That is just silly.

I don't always get around to commenting myself. With being a full time working wife and mom of 3 kids, in the best of times it is hectic and the worst of times it is pure chaos. Believe me, I understand where you are coming from time wise.

*hugs*

Holy drama queens, batman.

It's just LJ people. If somewhere along the lines, you cultivate some friends through it (yes, I consider you my friend)... then that's fan-freakin-awesome.

But if you're using LJ to pick fights and cultivate enemies... then you need to GET OUT OF THE HOUSE MORE OFTEN. C'mon. (that's aimed at the trouble makers, not you.)

And I"m still really drugged up, so if I'm not making sense then.... what's new really?

i figure that those people who are more willing to sit around and stir up that sort of stuff really have nothing better to do. i mean, really. if there's something that is irking you online, generally the best thing about it is that you can SO walk away from it for awhile (or choose to ignore it completely) instead of taking someone's bait and reducing yourself to their level.

i've had many people on my friends list start fighting MAJORLY with each other, and end up stirring the pot so that a lot of other mutual friends end up defriending one or the other and taking sides. i've always REFUSED to do that. i'm so glad that i did, as i have a wonderful band mate because of it.

sort of related to the original topic. ha.

I'm so happy you're back...those others...well, I deal with them if you want me to...ya know what I mean....*wink*. You take the time you need for work and school...when you make a post, I'll read it with enthusiasm...if there's something in my life I really REALLY need you to know, heck...I'll write you a snail mail. Because then I know you can read it while you're walking to work or something.

*hugs*

the other people are bastards and deserve to be treated as such!

yes, my dear, always know that my snail mail is ALWAYS open to you! aubkabob@livejournal.com.

thank you so much for hanging around all these years, my dear! i love you muchly!
