...if your LJ "friend of" list doesn't show me anymore. I suppose we've drifted apart in interests or personally. Could be you have bigger and better things to read about than my silly movie reviews and sometimes too-in-depth and dramatic recountings of life with my family, or boring progress reports on my "inferior" artistic electronic music endeavors or home improvement work. Maybe you have a personal problem with me, though I don't have a personal problem with you, which would explain why I kept you on my friends list; I was interested in your life. Could also be you defriended me who-knows-when long ago and that my own "friend of" list has grown smaller as a result. There are tons of reasons to speculate on and I'm not going to assume anything concrete, for every person I removed.
For whatever reason, I have more and more realized this journal is mostly just for me and I'm not utilizing LJ for it's big networking-with-others potential. I don't know how to swim the seas of millions to find even slightly kindred spirits in LJ, and they haven't seemed to find me either, in these 4 years on LJ.
I want to change my LJ name as I'm not obsessed with Joey nearly as much as when I started this thing. And people who have no idea what it means ask why I call myself a "fat one". But that costs $15. Though I don't want to lose 4 years of journal entries, I may just save the archive to my home PC, close this down, and start a new journal somewhere else. I can't imagine spending $15 to have someone point, click and change my name, when I could just start a new free blog instead.
So, no hard feelings if you in turn remove me, and I hope there aren't any hard feelings that I removed you. I wish you the best in life and all the happiness and sparkliness you can handle. Those of you still jointly friended with me or anyone remotely interested, I'll keep you posted on where/when I'm switching over to another blog!
