Possibly the most important thing I learned from Sandman is that you don't have to stay anywhere forever. You can just walk away from it all.

After I walked away from a community that was making me miserable last year, I waffled on what to do with my other journal on LJ. I didn't delete or defriend anyone aside from a couple people that no longer updated, but I didn't update either, and only posted to a couple of communities where I felt comfortable doing so. But I'd still see posts from people I never wanted to talk to again when I checked for updates on my flist. Finally tonight I deleted the thing, bookmarking places I still want to check in on, and I'll join up some places if/when I make a new one over there.

It feels good. It feels free.

In other news, I haven't progressed further in Vagrant Story, played some Legend of Mana for a while, tried to replay the .hack//GU games but stalled (may return to it, dunno) partway through vol. 2 because of sudden reading binge. Tore through some Discworld, Queen's Thief, Circle of Magic, Hunger Games, and am still going strong. Still reviewing Sandman for Mark Reads, am nearly finished with Brief Lives. Somehow, writing down all my many thoughts and feelings on it is making me less prepared for what's to come. How the hell does that even work? Need to squeeze in The Tempest somewhere, as prep for the final issue.
