JOURNAL (Noun): a daily record of news and events of a personal nature

First off, I post A LOT. That's not everyone's cup of tea, so I feel like I should warn, up front. I spend a lot of time cooped up in my bed/house. When I get bored, I post. When a thought crosses my mind, I post.

That said, my journal is a pretty even mix of real life and fandom. The real life stuff is friends-locked, but my fanfic and recs are open to everyone. I have Lymphedema, Rheumatoid Arthritis and several other chronic conditions. I sometimes use my journal to vent. If you're not into that, that's okay, but if you'd like to get to know the parts of me that aren't fandom-related, feel free to friend me. I usually always friend back. In another life, I was scoopchick, in case I seem familiar to you.
