So freaking stressed out (-75ish)  
I could name a ton of things! Instead, I should really stop writing right this minute and get some exercise in and see if that helps.

I think that LJ is pretty dead now. Even the most active communities I frequent only have (at most) a post a day. And that's rare. I'm sad about the death of LJ.

I think the people that still read this thing are either

a) People I now communicate with more frequently on twitter
b) People I talk to on the phone/ text more often than any of us post on here
c) People I've met through LJ and have no other means of communicating with
d) Stalker family members

Sadly, group C has probably dwindled down to one or two people! And I think some of group D is on twitter now too :P

See? I didn't have to get a facebook to watch LJ die! Or a tumblr!

I am kind of curious, though. Who still reads this thing? Shoot me a reply if you are! This is not some emo dramapost. Sadly, there are easier ways to post photos online now. Sadly, there are easier ways to keep in touch.

And honestly? Since the last year+ has been about massive life changes, I've been re-evaluating a lot of my relationships. Why would I feel like I need to blog somewhere other than here to talk about weight stuff? Well, I felt like it was too boring for here. I felt like my friends wouldn't want to read about it. I felt like they would get tired of it, and annoyed. It shouldn't be that way, though. I'll probably keep my blog on the diet site and use that to accomplish journal-related goals. The site is kind of ghetto, but even it is better than LJ about photos. Sheesh. I'm still boycotting facebook, though.

But yeah, weight loss stuff?

Well, I've officially lost 75 now. I'm noticeably smaller than when I got married, which makes me think maybe it's time to pull out some really old stuff and try it on. I've revered all marriage weight gain, and some of college weight gain. I'm working on reversing freshman year weight gain, and then I'll be done with all that and ready to maintain. One accomplishment that has been nearly as huge as the weight loss is the fact that after a year, mom finally said good job like she noticed I changed something :P It's not that we have a bad relationship. We don't. We just don't have a very close one.

Honestly, though, if Celine is the only one that still reads this... you and I talk all the time on the phone/ txts :P

In totally unrelated news..

I'm not really watching TV much anymore on the bike. My ipad fits ok in the book holder, so I've been doing a lot of reading! Especially the free stuff you can get that is in public domain :P I figure.. if I'm going to be stuck in one place for 45 min, I should at least find a way to make it fun. Well.. being sweating and pecking at a touchscreen isn't that much fun, but enriching? Yeah.. the bike is pretty enriching. We'll go with that.

Anyway, got a bunch of free Lovecraft, so I'm reading some good 'ol American horror. After I finish this, I've got a Rudyard Kipling short story collection I'm going to start on. There are a lot of classics I've never touched, and I feel like I could really do myself some good to take the time to read some of this stuff. The best part about short story collections is that I can usually finish 1-2 stories per session. Some of the longer ones have taken me 2-3 days. Those are the worst, though. After investing two days into getting through some novella, it's hard to wait to finish it. Especially when it's getting interesting! (The Dunwich Horror took me 2 days+ some extra non-bike reading, because it got good and I didn't want to wait a day for the ending :X The Shadow Over Innsmouth, thankfully, finished neatly in two biking sessions.)

I read this shit! and I post here! And we talk all the time by phone and texts!

Facebook for me is my totally fake life of fun and happiness 24/7. Lj encompasses some of that, but I also use it for personal stuff whether good or bad. I like that facebook lets me do photos real easy without the intermediary photobucket. Although photobucket quality and size is whatever I want, and facebook is shittastic quality.

Also I can write sooo much more here. You write like 2 sentences and facebook is like THAT IS ENOUGH TEXT. STOP WRITING. GO PLAY CANDY CRUSH NOW.

I'm still around, but I think it's just a desperate hope that things might pick up again someday...

I still check in here, but usually watch for posts from you on Twitter. Do you know almost all of our families are on Facebook. All from Grampa Behnkes and my side are there. I have all of them in one group that is just family and then I don't always have to go to the whole facebook to see what everyone is doing. Your Mom is on there. Also all your cousins. aunts and uncles too.

Re: Facebook
I know! I am very anti-facebook, though :P
