firesea: self-portrait

by the way

Yes, I've been defriending a lot of people lately. I'm trying to cut down on the amount of time I spend online, which is disproportionally weighted towards LJ. I've been handling it for a while with a separation between "people I read" and "people who read me" filters, but it's too much hassle to maintain.

So the standard disclaimer applies: it's nothing personal! And if you've been cut and are really sad about it, let me know. It may well just be because I haven't seen you write anything in a while or some such.

It's awkward. I feel like I shouldn't even want to make a post like this, apologizing and making disclaimers for my private whims and preferences, that it's catering too much to the passive-aggressive behaviors that I've been working very hard to prune out of my life. But such passive-aggressiveness is somewhat inherent to the nature of the medium (which probably contributes to its great success as a drama propagation device). It's enough to tempt me to leave it behind entirely, were it not for the fact that this is the only way I keep in touch with a lot of people I care about.

Anyway. Back to packing.
