1) I am 100% for the strike against LJ regarding its infamously bad decision and newest broken promise (you can read all about it on the main page). I may be not affected by this latest "improvement" but I still know a screw-over when I see one. Making money's one thing; becoming a tactless corporate giant incapable of proper communication is another. Let alone the fact that they obviously don't give a damn about the people on here or ANYTHING that's been promised in the past.
So, where will I be on the 21st? That's right--NOT HERE.

In a happier light:
2) DRIVING IS SO MUCH FUN!! I'm finally confident about my abilities. Also, Ari fell asleep while I drove us to work one morning. Would you say he's comfortable with my driving yet, lol?
I pick up my car Saturday--YAY!

3) SPRING BREAK IS EVEN MORE FUN!!! Thus far, there have been so many wondrous memories that I wish I could collect them all and store them in a box somewhere. All these marvelous times, all in a row! Plus, it's only Wednesday!

4) I LOVE ARI SO MUCH and he makes me so happy and I feel as if I could explode with joy!

Have you seen this? http://darkrosetiger.livejournal.com/373663.html Looks to me like the strike is all ready having an impact, and it hasn't even started yet. :)

I didn't even know there was a strike let alone why for...*has been blissfully unaware...and when it comes to company things I'm completely lost*

My spring break starts after Friday but on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday I have to get up and start musical practice at 8 AM

The 24-hour strike starts at 8 tonight, regarding this:

Basically, when LJ had made the basic, plus, and paid accounts as the three account types they had PROMISED that ads would never be forced upon free users (in fact, past April Fool's site updates have said they'd make ads everywhere, for the shock effect--just to show how horrible most people find them on LJ, whose reputation is one of a site that's ad-free). They are breaking this promise now and a lot of us are really pissed.

Not to mention how the new "owner" is seeking to exploit LJ as a money-hungry corporate entity, rather than a community full of happy customers as it used to be.
