Is anyone still here?

This entry might be lost in everyone's... what? Dash? Newsfeed? It's been a while since I've been to LJ, but since when did they call that thing a Friends' Feed?

After clearing out the cobwebs and cringing at a younger, but no less foolish, past self, I find myself looking back at this LJ account with nostalgia. Despite whatever embarrassment I might feel at my teenage self, I'm going to keep the ridiculousness of a teenaged Vex on the internet.

(And I'm sure that when I look back on this entry four or five years into the future, I will think that I sound helplessly young and that I should just never put anything of myself on the internet where people can find it and use it against me.)

It always horrified me when I come back to an old friend with their journal purged, or a cherished fanfic to find it deleted off the face of the internet (The Death of Narcissa Black, anyone? Does anyone know where copies of it exist? Bueller? Bueller?)

Some updates.

Updates!Collapse )

If you're still lurking, if you have any updates to tell me, even if we can't keep in touch, please please do so. Comment, or shoot an email (simply_vex@yahoo.com).

Perhaps I'll get more into LiveJournal again. Perhaps not. But I have been treasuring the afternoon I spent rediscovering a girl who wrote far more freely than I do today. I reread her work like she/I was a stranger.

And perhaps she was/I am.
