woolly_socks: me with red hair, and fishnet sleeves, hand over face (Default)

After much procrastinating and dread, I'm about to do a rather large friends list cut. I have to, I'm struggling to keep up and I'm going back to school in a few weeks.

I'm sorry, please don't hate me.

Oh dear. I can understand that though. If it helps, keeping me on won't overload you...I really only ever post my Hugh-related goodies when I have them. Up to you though!

Good to know, thanks. :-)

I'm hating this, so I think I'm going to procrastinate some more.

I'm not sure yet, sorry! I'm kind of in the middle of it and I don't know how many journals I can keep yet.

Oh Noes.
I hadn't thought of that- uni means less WS posts.

I've been intending to do it for ages, but I don't want to! But almost every day I find myself getting behind, and school hasn't even started yet!

WS?

That's so sweet, thank you!

And extra points for mentioning ninjas.

That's a very understandable decision, and in the end it comes down to what's best for you.

I suspect you'll still do so, but try not to stress. I'm sure people will understand.

Man. I just cut it occasionally and leave them to it. 'Friends' lists are misnamed. I don't read the journals of all my actual friends, and I'm not friendly with everyone I read.

Cut me out of your list anytime.

OTOH, if you want to cut your reading list without cutting into others' ability to read you, you could just make a reading filter and leave the flist alone.

From: [identity profile] woolly-socks.livejournal.com
It's different for me. I'm very friendly with some of my flist. I'm finding it hard to cut people.

I have filters, but my favourite one to use is the automatic 'journals only' one. And if people are on that, I will want to keep up with them. I think cutting people is just the only way I can keep it manageable.

you can get rid of me if you like. i live too far away to come over and serenade you with songs from the HCL soundtrack.

Date: 2009-01-20 04:34 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] woolly-socks.livejournal.com
The very fact that you would even pretend to consider HCL serenade makes me want to keep you forever and ever.

This is why I try to keep my flist to under 50 at all times. I procrastinate enough without help from LJ! Also? Communities don't mind if you stop reading them. ;)

Date: 2009-01-20 04:16 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] woolly-socks.livejournal.com
Under 50 seems very reasonable.

And good point about the comms!

From: [identity profile] deliaepigram.livejournal.com
at the risk of being whiney, i think i'd be gutted if you cut me!

comms are definitely the first thing to go when i make cuts. you can always come back if you miss them.

Date: 2009-01-20 04:16 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] woolly-socks.livejournal.com
I would never cut you in a million years!! *clings*

yes, there's going to be a massive clean out of comms.

I am so psyched up about you starting school! Go, you!! Do what you need to do, dearie.

Date: 2009-01-20 03:36 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] woolly-socks.livejournal.com
Thank you!! I'm psyched too. Scared out of my mind at times, but mostly just incredibly excited. :-)

From: [identity profile] arathesane.livejournal.com
Well, I hope I make the cut but I completely understand the need to do it!

I should probably do one myself but the truth is, that when I get overloaded, I just don't check LJ.

School is going to be stressful, and you don't need to put your system under anymore pressure. You need to take of yourself, first. People that really care about you, won't be offended!

Date: 2009-01-20 03:35 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] woolly-socks.livejournal.com
Thank you!

I probably will stop checking LJ when I'm super busy too, but this is a preemptive strike so that won't be all the time.

I know what you mean! That's why I have a "community" filter that I only read sometimes and a "communities I actually care about + people" filter. It's such a chore to keep up! But I'm glad I'm reading flist again after giving it a break for a while because I feel more in the loop!

Date: 2009-01-20 03:29 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] woolly-socks.livejournal.com
I filter too, but the filter I'm using most often these days is the 'journals only' pre-made filter. The one you don't have to maintain! I'm finding I barely any time at all for comms, which sucks. And this is before school starts!

*sigh* My life, so hard. ;-)

Honey, you do what you need to do. If your list is stressing you out, cut it. Even if it means cutting me (and I hope you won't get all awkward if I keep reading and commenting on your lj even if you take me off your list).

*hugs you and your adorable pink hair*

Also, SCHOOL! It's going to be AWESOME! Like you are.

Even if it means cutting me (and I hope you won't get all awkward if I keep reading and commenting on your lj even if you take me off your list).

That's what's making this so hard! My LJ is almost entirely friends only, so cutting people will mean that they won't be able to read and comment on my day to day posts.

*wibbles*

Thank you. You're so sweet. xxxxxx

Cut me and I will never speak to you again.

*ahem* I mean, of course, that I support you in anything you need to do in preparation for going back to school.

I'm totally cutting you for comparing Eleven's hair to Ten's.

Except for how I'm lying because I wouldn't cut you in a million years.

I will, however, continue to skip the tennis posts... ;-)
