Ever changing web presence [10 Jun 2009|03:31pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

I don't really post here that much, mostly I log in to check other people's journals.  Recently I've been working on having a larger web presence, but not hiding behind this old name. I've got my author website(hydypaige.com) up and running and hosted in real web space, though it is still going through some major revisions to look like it wasn't designed by a grade schooler. I've got a personal wordpress(username hydy) blog as well, just started today, with a quick, excuse the mess while I get this going post, as well as a rather long post about my first week on the pH Miracle program, eating alkaline for my health. I'll be keeping my HydyP LJ going, but this one and ravonlocke are pretty much going to be dead, though of course, I'll be using this too continue checking up on everyone.

David Eddings passed away last night at the age of 77.  I loved his books, he will be missed.

“I must learn to love the fool in me - the one who feels too much, talks to much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laught and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my fool.” Theodore Isaac Rubin

It's been awhile [27 Feb 2009|09:45am]
[ mood | contemplative ]

So, LJ asked me if I wanted to restore the saved draft when I opened this window today, and I was curious... it came up with a single sentence: "2008 was an incredible year."  Apparently I was going to do a New Year's post and forgot. Oops. So let's start there. 

Last year was pretty incredible.  We moved into our own place, got involved in a Lot of different groups, met a ton of new people, got involved with some of them, too. Went to conventions and parties, learned and explored. I did a lot of writing over the summer when I set deadlines for myself. Got to see my family a few times. Visited Boise for a short time. All in all a very good year.

This year, so far, has been full of changes. The new club has opened and I've become part of crew. Rich is going through a lot of changes in his life.  I've been sick and now have once again injured a rib from said sickness. I broke my car on an ice pile and had to leave it in the shop for two weeks. We're moving to a cheaper apartment in April. Rich is looking for a new job, I'm pondering changing careers... I had decided and put up my resume to start to look, but then Rich got laid off and I freaked out and backed off, but now my boss is threatening to take me off head cashier with unnamed, and possibly part-time consequences. My Mom is waiting on her final appointment, which may put her and Dad in the UP for the rest of their lives. My sister-in-law is going to have her third child later this year. And several friends are in a state of change right now, too.  Change we can believe in, Mr. President?  I guess this is the year for it.

Writing is good [06 Sep 2008|10:22am]
Sometimes it just takes writing it down to get it out, to see the truth, and to let it all just flow.

Finding my way [20 Aug 2008|10:30pm]
[ mood | content ]

A weekend of family and forest has righted me again. Things are clearer now and I can see where I'm going. I have goals and plans to meet them. I have good family, good friends and a good life. Nothing is ever perfect and few things are ever easy, but sometimes you just have to keep on pushing until you make it through. I've climbed back onto the path and I am happy. Onward and upward and forever spinning, spinning, spinning... Cuz if you stop, you'll fall off the Earth. ;)

Need to recharge [14 Aug 2008|11:08pm]
[ mood | drained ]

Spinning, spinning, spinning.

The fair was really good, getting outside, into humanity, something 'normal.'  Or as close as it is possible for me anymore. I didn't eat anything deep fried, maybe I should have. ;) 

Wrote a few good pages the other night, too. But it still scares me. I shouldn't be afraid of my own writing. Shouldn't worry about what people will think. There's internet TV playing behind me, a father of a writer died, but left a letter admitting he was afraid that his son wasn't exaggerating when he made terrible fathers in his books.

Things are crazy.

I remembered my Grandma on the way to work, nearly four years gone, and I was nearly in tears over remembering the last time I saw her. 

I was going to go to a bonfire and a drum circle this weekend, but it got canceled. I've been wanting to go lay in a field somewhere and stare at the stars, but I was happy to settle for a roaring fire. No luck.

The Internet [10 Apr 2008|11:13am]
[ mood | contemplative ]

Read some people talking about the internet and it's effects on their lives and relationships and got to thinking...

In the beginning there were email pen pals in Grade School.  I don't remember much about them, but the letters were short and only one person typed them up each week. Then there came Juno, and I emailed my two best friends in Middle School. Then there came Dragon's Gate, and I was a little fairy-type creature on AOL who coveted shinies above all else.  I met a few strange people on AOL, but mostly I talked to my High School friends.

Then came College, and Monarchy, which became Evernight before I finished. I met loads of people on this game, from all over the world.  We chatted, we RPed, we went to war together.  We had Bashes where we actually Met each other. This game took me on trips to Boise, Reno, Raleigh, Florida, England, and Australia. I met people, stayed with people, dated people.  It was a wild ride that eventually led me to my marriage, but not until After.

I stopped playing the game my senior year, though I still visited the forums until I graduated(and maybe once a year since). After my trip to Australia that summer,I stopped talking to people from the game as well.  I got a new ICQ, and now I just talked to people from Home and from College.  I picked back up with a couple people I'd met at Evernight, but only if I'd met them in person.  My life became re-entwined with one of those, and we got Married.

Then came WoW.  I met people who I didn't know, but mostly I played with my RL friends(or Rich's friends, anyway, but most of them became my friends).  I didn't like people I didn't actually know.  I was highly intolerant of their requests for help.  I liked the game, agreed to play the game because I could play it alone, I didn't have to help those strange people I didn't know.  I feel like the cranky old lady of the guild, but I don't play much anymore, so I don't mind.

Through the last few years I joined a few communities. This one, for instance, under a few names, but no one I don't know has found me here, no one comments but a few select friends.  I picked up a couple Monarchy friends again on here, ones I'd met IRL, and a few people important to my friends. I joined a writers community, but that didn't last long, their anger and arrogance drove me away from reading their posts. Though it did land me an editing job before I left. I don't do the networking sites, though I log in to Rich's MySpace to check on a couple friends about twice a month. 

All in all, the Internet has been important to my life, but it never became my life.  It has always been a medium to communicate with far-flung friends, and it has brought some very important people into my life.  Certain parts of it were addictions for a period of time(years, really), but I've come away from both without much damage and with some good experiences to look back on, and a small handful of friends. The internet is very important to me, as a tool.  A tool that has shaped my life for the better.

New Graphic [22 Mar 2008|12:17am]
[ mood | discontent ]

I desperately need a new header graphic for my website.  It seemed like a good idea at the time, but the colors are really awful the more I look at them. Anybody wanna make me a new one?
