Andrei in the office

Weekly administrivia and warning:

More new people to the board to list:

1_aga: Someone I discovered on another board. The fates tried to prevent us from interacting and we beat the system.

kebechet: Who I can not begin to extol the coolness of!

The forthcoming warning is that a flurry of administrivia posts is about to roll. Mostly filtered, but if you're on several of my filters. You'll get a bunch. If you're not on my filters. This will be your semesterly chance.

Administrivia...

As my schedule has started to lighten and I've added and dropped several people from my lists. I'm doing a quick check up.

I'm hoping to start posting more again. Also, due to reasons involving the fact that my LJ is now being viewed by ... more people than intended, I have to make more of my posts filtered for a while. So here's your chance to get added/dropped from the filters. For those newer to LJ who don't know about filters. Here is a link to the faq.

Below is a list of filters I keep for certain posts. Please feel free to either tick off on the poll or email me at my LJ address if you'd like to be added to any of these filters (some have some pre-requisites) (Poll responses are hidden so you needn't worry about your responses being seen)

I'll be posting briefly to all my filters to remind you if you are on that filter and to give you a chance to drop off of it. If you don't at least get one from "People" then you need to notify me :)

It makes me uneasy that it makes me uneasy that...

I am in the midst of writing a post to my S&F filter. It's something internal to me.

It's my way of fighting the monsters. The monsters (in this case) are the things that gnaw away at who I am. The things that make me uncomfortable being the me that I am.

I like operating with a clear conscious. Gods know I have done more than my share of dumb things deceiving myself that something was okay. So, I've learned to listen to my inner voice and my gut when doing things. Trying not to act out of habit but out of intent.

This would all be great... if all my inner voices were on my side. :)

Oh, ye who now reach for books to see if Andrei is Psychotic...tosh!

Everyone has voices of doubt in their head. Voices that keep you from making the best progress. Voices that keep you safe and secure, even when you don't need to be. Sometimes they are on your side, they mean well. They are the voice in your head as you're about to jump out of an airplane, screaming, "What the F*#$ are you doing! You're gonna get yourself killed!!!!" They're the ones that tell you not to talk to the person in the bar because they are gonna just say, "no."

You fight these voices. And you learn more about yourself.

So... when I find something that annoys me, irritates me, or makes me uncomfortable. That's when the magickian in me rolls up the sleeves of my robe. That's when it's time to go dragon hunting.

More forthcoming as I face this new dragon.
