Okay, here is a real first entry!
I decided not to import my entire LJ here, mostly because there is something vastly relieving about not having a journal that starts with my freshman year of high school (but instead the summer before my senior year of undergrad; I'm sure it will be just as embarrassing in a couple of years).
I'll be using this journal in basically the same way I used the LJ: fandom talk, real life talk, talking-with-people, &c. One of the nifty things about Dreamwidth, though, is the seriously wonderful access/subscription feature: not only does the loaded word 'friend' come into it nowhere, but it makes organising things a lot easier -- such as this thing I want to try where I'm going to more or less divide up the fandom talk and the real life talk. The idea of separate real life and fandom journals hurts both my head and soul, because there is probably no way I will ever be able to actually separate real life from the fannishly tinged, but I think I can probably at least get away with an unlocked-locked dichotomy. The unlocked content will therefore be reviews and meta and silly picspams and links and fic; the locked content will be all the real life stuff (at the moment, mostly job and grad school dithering). If you're just here for the fannish stuff, feel free to subscribe and lurk happily away; if you want to know me and my dithering real life ways, come say hi.
I know pretty much everyone subscribed to me right now is a refugee from my LJ flist -- so I'd love to take a headcount. LOOK A HEADCOUNT POLL.

how are you using dreamwidth?
If your content is mirrored from LJ, I will probably filter you off my default flist and read you over here instead; no matter what you are doing, if you are using Dreamwidth as a reading list in any way, feel free filter me off your default flist also and read me here instead.
I think that's all the housekeeping right now. Guys, isn't this place still shiny?
