*pouts* I can't join this one! I'm going to do my very first swap (the 30-something one), which ends its sign up at the same time. Hopefully there'll be a second round, because it sounds like a fun swap

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

I'm waking up again and see that war on screen again
And it makes me want to go and hide
This world is full of misery, the anger is too big to see
That's why I had to dream this dream
