Am I a farmer now?

I joined the FFA... sort of.

I spent my first hour on fail_fandomanon. I actually sort of figured out how it works, etc.

I have really enjoyed these past few days of dreamwidth actually being active in some ways and not just shouting into a void.

I got a job today! My first teaching job. It's not official quite yet, and it's 45 minutes drive. It could be better, but it could be so much worse. I feel like if I can stick this out for a year or two, I can save some money, pay down some debt, help my parents, and figure out where or if I want to move to a more metro area. It's in a beautiful rural area, and I live in a small city (50k). I would like to go somewhere with more opportunity and more nerdy social outlets, but int he meantime, I love the landscape here. I don't want to feel financially or socially pressured to move just for the sake of moving. I am blessed to get along with my parents and I don't especially want to leave them or our dogs when I don't have an interesting or especially safe or comfy place to land.

I'm considering whether or not to institute some kind of minor locking of my entries, but also I am l-a-z-y and don't want to have to change gears every time I make a post.

This is a line just so that every line-break in this post doesn't start with "I."

Congrats on the teaching job! You're going to do great. It definitely sounds like staying where you are, for the moment, is a good idea. I live with my parents and don't feel any urge to move out either, though sometimes people will be like, "Don't you want to get married someday?" UGH.

I'm not really into real life socializing; I'm too awkward.

It's kind of fun to imagine what kind of legends would be told about you if you were a cryptid XD "They say she hunts in the night for wifi signals..."

Cryptids are sooo cool. A fic should be written where all the main characters are various cryptids..

Congrats on the job!

If you go to your settings, there's the option to change the default privacy settings of entries. All of mine are f-locked by default because I am also too lazy to do it manually.
