This merits its own post for me:

I just realised that since I was 13 and got a livejournal, I've been looking at people's ElJay's and admiring their layouts, friends, communities, icons, moodthemes, post styles...

It struck me that my livejournal has become like those I used to look up to. I have these amazing friends I love so much, I frequent and am accepted in communities for a range of my interests, I figured out how to use layouts that I adore, my grandmother and a friend bought me a paid account for fantastic icons, I discovered how to use moodthemes, I post in a manner that I love reading later...

This made me very happy. So here's to you, 13-year-old livejournal virgin self. You'll get there. It takes a few years, but you'll get your online community of love and rainbows. Keep at it. :)

Woah 13 years! I am in awe. I just discovered this place a couple months ago. It's still overwhelming:)

You do have some amazing icons :D

Ohh, not quite 13 years! I've had one since I was 13, so...wow, about half that! I can't believe I've been on here for 7 years, ALL of my adolescence. That's pretty fantastic!

Thank you. :) I spend far too much time collecting icons. My collection is large, and I cleared it a year or two ago!

aaaahhhh. Just a little difference there. I must have read it too fast. STILL that's impressive:) I was just thinking about adding some stuff to my profile...are these layout sites for unpaid members? Do you have the links on your profile?

Been around a while but never got the whole layout thing quite figured out :P

If you ever want any help, let me know. :) There are some good communities out there with free layouts and guidance on how to use them!

I'll keep that in mind. My main problem is my laziness really..
