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.

I'm not trying to cause drama now but do you even read my posts? Do you know anything about me? Cause if you don't just let me know and we can part ways.

You know?, maybe its just me, but you seem to be perpetuating the drama, you leave a comment, singling yourself out, bringing attention to the event when you should be trying to erase it. If you wanted to contact Aubrey without the wrath of her other friends, then my guess would be that you would have contacted her by email or other means outside of livejournal.
Nothing against you, per se really, but when you set yourself up and then attack the people that were only taking your bait? Its like fishing for drama.

You should have kept it between the two of you then instead of doing this in a public forum. There is e-mail, chat programs and several other methods of communication. Failing those, you could have created a LJ filter that only the two of you could see. Take responsibility for what you're doing already.

I know that this is a late reply but.....
*claps hands* thats EXACTLY THE POINT I tried to make...

thank you.
its like walking up to a group of people, bringing up a "secret" between you and one of the people in the group and then YELLING at the other people standing RIGHT THERE for taking interest in the conversation.

That icon pic is so cool. *grins*

*nods* I would have done the same thing if anyone else had spoken to Aubs that way. I'm very protective of the people I care about.

I tend to be protective, but am sure that my friends can take care of their own business... but when someone starts drama in a PUBLIC (and yes, our journals are public, damnit) area, AND it involves one of my bestest friends? well even mild-mannered Andrea will speak out.
