The Failure of Facebook and Futility of Maintaining a Blog

I suppose the title is a bit of a misnomer; Facebook hasn't really failed me and the blog is fine, neither one simply fits my current need. As it turns out when you're more than marginally damaged in the head you need a more out-of-the-way space to rant and rave, so I dusted off my LJ login to do precisely that. I haven't really had a chance to dump my thoughts out to really examine them, and as a result it feels like sometimes I can't sort them properly. Not that I currently have much to say at this EXACT second, I'm just at work and avoiding my tasks. I'll have more to say later, but at the moment I'm just trying to get a post in to finally cross this to-do off of my personal list.

In all seriousness I guess I do occasionally need a journal, which this site is more suited to than anything else I currently use. I have my doubts about the long-term viability of LJ these days, but it'll do. It's not like I have anything monumental to say, I just feel like saying it - and while I certainly don't mind putting things in a publicly accessible location, it just doesn't feel right for the social dynamic of Facebook. I'm in one of those weirdly transitional moods; a time when I feel like so many things are changing and the potential for awesomeness is high - I just need to get my shit together, be more organized, etc.

Weirdly enough that organization always felt most effective in journal form.
