The last time I was here was mid-2019. A lot's happened since then - some of which is going to be in this blog, some of which is going to be in an as-of-yet-uncreated vent thread. I'll probably link it in here when it's done, just for ease of access for myself so I don't neglect ever doing anything in it like I would probably do otherwise. [Space Reserved For Vent Thread Link!] Before, when I was here, I kept my interpersonal interactions to a minimum because I felt that moderating a forum meant I should maintain a business-like veneer at all times. While that served me well for dealing with troublesome situations, it also meant I was more reserved than I should've been, and I never quite got the backup and help that this forum provided, except in very small doses in the Caring Void. Let this be a post to say that I'm done with pretending to be professional all the time. I want to talk about things I want to talk about - like, hey, I just got a Tumblr for the first time as of last month; isn't that wild? The site's on the decline or whatever and I'm just now getting there! It was actually being on Tumblr again that made me want to come back. I browsed Seebs' page and a few other members that I could remember, realized how much I missed everybody, what a better state of mind I was in compared to when I left, and...well, that's that. I came back. As a final note, let me say that I understand that it's been almost four years since people've seen me, so if you feel uncomfortable with me moderating something, please tell me so. I don't expect to instantly receive trust from people who don't know me as well as they do someone like Rigel or Re Allyssa, so if I overstep bounds, please let me know.
