cranky, stressed, annoyed, frustrated


I finally got around to quitting support. I've been meaning to for a while, but wanted to wait until I could send email so I didn't have to open it in a public cat and have it moved. Also I wanted to write some long cranky thing about how things had changed in my time there and how I was uncomfortable volunteering for a for-profit business. In the end, I just wanted to get it done, though. Oh well.

I'm trying to spend less time on internet stuff in general. I want more time for other things. I'll probably start dropping some of the communities I'm in next. I can't bring myself to unfriend actual people, but I can handle ditching communities. I want to spend more time out in the real world or working on my various craft projects. I also want to spend some time getting in better shape. Mostly, I'm sick of internet drama, and how, in the end, every 'net community is top-down with one person at the top calling the shots. In real life, a group of people who hang out don't always have an absolute "leader". but rather usually they have a core group of people, any one of which can decide to leave and/or be a dick without ruining it for the rest of them. I like that model better.
