Been working on back logging entries from LJ onto Dreamwidth, since I didn't crosspost a lot of them. Still have a lot more to do, but it's getting there. Working on changing my theme to one I like, and updating the info page.

The state of the world has not gotten appreciably better in the last several days. There have been hopeful things coming out of Ferguson, but then there was more violence last night. The mainstream media has been largely ignoring the crisis (outside of MSNBC and CNN), so the majority of my news I'm getting from Twitter. That... is not cool, America.

Got back from a week long trip yesterday, and very thankful for that, since we were getting on each other's last nerves. We spent a few days in Asheville, NC, and then drove back to MD along the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Skyline Drive. It was really gorgeous, but I am not someone who can hike days at a time - or even do strenuous walks - so I was completely worn out. The only reason I was able to go for as long as I did was because I actually have kept up with the fitness regiment, so my legs were a lot more fit. But so much time in close quarters with the family meant that we could not escape each other, and my dad and I got into several arguments. He apologized for the last one, seeing as he outright said that maybe I shouldn't have come on the trip when I said it would be better for me to get home Saturday and have a day relaxing before going back to work on Monday, but still, it goes to show that there are limits to our familial interactions. We were arguing over the fact that he wanted to stay one night more and I didn't, so that meant that I shouldn't have come on the week-long trip. Thanks, dad.

We did have fun, though, and I'm glad I went and got a week away from work. Problem is, now I don't want to go back.
