It's not dead? According to my friend page it is. I remember when Livejournal was all there was, and having a Myspace was particularly uncool. Ahh the days before Facebook.
There's a community long dead but still there in spirit ms_paint. I got my start as an artist there. We had good times, from 2003 to I would say 2008. Until everyone seemed to move on. It was a place to post crude and offensive rudimentary ms paint drawings.
I've also had my share of friends, greatly admired, and even meeting three of them on adventure plane rides to other states multiple times. Livejournal you could say inspired within me a spirit of adventure that rewarded my risks in getting to intimately know people.
I hadn't thought about it before this post, but come to think about it, a huge chunk of my personality, and things I consider valuable within myself are a direct result of livejournal. Wow cool.
My real name is Ari. I'm 27. I'm a student, and artist, a traveler, a writer, a lover, a friend. Livejournal is not dead, that is proven to me by the activity in this community!
Friends I would value are ones that write long winded posts about nothing really, but find ways to write nothing beautifully. Anyone with humor. Artists. Photographers. and beautiful girls who don't pass a certain threshold of annoying.
here's 2 pictures of mew and some pics of my artwork
