Mostly everything is locked, and I'll not be making anymore posts here.
I am, however, always on Tumblr. :)

Wow. So, hey. It's been a million years since my last post here. Am I still on people's friend lists? (Is that even what it's called, omg?) This website has changed so much since RL and Tumblr sucked me away. I have no idea how to navigate through anything anymore.

I've spent the last few days cleaning out old junk--emails, subscriptions, life. A crazy bout of spring cleaning, I suppose. This journal was next on the list. Though it's not so much cleaning as it is making one final post and just archiving everything. I don't know how many people are still on this site. I feel like a majority of us have moved on over to Tumblr or Dreamwidth a while back. It took epically long for me to even find a proper theme since I let my paid account die (all those userpics I've lost, SIGH!)

But here I am. It's been just a little over two years since my last post--funny that. Life's been an insane rollercoaster of hardships and wonder that I'll really not get into, but I do hope everyone is doing well, and having a splendid 2014--if there's even anyone still out there attached to this account.

I got stupidly nostalgic scrolling through these entries. I spent a solid while there living on this website and hogwarts_elite--God, Hogwarts Elite! The little safe haven I managed to find in the midst of a godawful year. The memories and hilarity from those months are ones I cherish. Who would have thought a simple sorting community could end up being so important, even for that short span of time? Sorting applications, staying up late just for Hogsmeade weekend, the glitter Hufflepuff trophy and cupcakes, HA! So absurd, yet so, so amazing.

I will likely still be lurking in communities and such, though logging on will probably be rarity. This is my last post unless I ever get up the need to blog again. I really doubt that will happen, but who knows? Should anyone ever want to find me for any reason, I moved over to Tumblr.

Adieu, adieu. Thank you for the memories. This was a home I'll never forget.

All of your guys are from H_E except for one, lol, but I'm still posting this here. There is a Get to Know You Meme going on at sorting_elite so come check it out, answer questions, and ask questions if you haven't already.

Also, hi!

If you are reading this right now, you have more luxury than someone in Iran could ever hope for right now. If you are watching TV or a video on youtube, updating your status on Facebook, Tweeting, or even texting your friend, you are lucky. If you are safe in your home, and were able to sleep last night without the sounds of screaming from the rooftops, you need to know and understand what is happening to people just like you in Iran right now.

They are not the enemy. They are a people whose election has been stolen. For the first time in a long time, a voice for change struck the youth of Iran, just as it did for many people in the United States only seven months ago. Hossein Mousavi gained the support of millions of people in Iran as a Presidential candidate. He stands for progressiveness. He supports good relations with the West, and the rest of the world. He is supported with fervor as he challenges the oppressive regime of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

On Friday, millions of people waited for hours in line to vote in Iran's Presidential election. Later that night, as votes came in, Mousavi was alerted that he was winning by a two-thirds margin. Then there was a change. Suddenly, it was Ahmadinejad who had 68% of the vote - in areas which have been firmly against his political party, he overwhelmingly won. Within three hours, millions of votes were supposedly counted - the victor was Ahmadinejad. Immediately fraud was suspected - there was no way he could have won by this great a margin with such oppposition. Since then, reports have been coming in of burned ballots, or in some cases numbers being given without any being counted at all. None of this is confirmed, but what happened next seems to do the trick.

The people of Iran took the streets and rooftops. They shout "Death to the dictator" and "Allah o akbar." They join together to protest. Peacefully. The police attack some, but they stay strong. Riots happen, and the shouting continues all night. Text messaging was disabled, as was satellite, and websites which can spread information such as Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, and the BBC are blocked in the country. At five in the morning, Arabic speaking soldiers (the people of Iran speak Farsi) stormed a university in the capital city of Tehran. While sleeping in their dormitories, five students were killed. Others were wounded. These soldiers are thought to have been brought in by Ahmadinejad from Lebanon. Today, 192 of the university's faculty have resigned in protest.

Mousavi requested that the government allow a peaceful rally to occur this morning - the request was denied. Many thought that it would not happen. Nevertheless, first a few thousand people showed up in the streets of Tehran. At this point, it is estimated that 1 to 2 million people were there. Mousavi spoke on the top of a car. The police stood by. For a few hours, everything was peaceful. Right now, the same cannot be said. Reports of injuries, shootings, and killings are flooding the internet. Twitter has been an invaluable source - those in Iran who still know how to access it are updating regularly with picture evidence. People are being brutally beaten. Tonight will be another night without rest for so many in Iran no older than I am. Tonight there is a Green Revolution.

Barack Hussein Obama, the 44th President of the United States of America.

Seriously, could this day get any more amazing? Today, America woke up to George W. Bush's last day in office, to the inauguration of the first black president in history - we woke up to a freaking new era! Holy shit!! Now when we say "President," we're referring to Barack Obama, not someone who has fucked up this country so bad (and us with it), I am amazed at the optimism Obama... our president (man, does that feel weird to type)... brought with his speech. Wasn't his speech just amazing? I wish they didn't mess up on the oath though, lol. That was a bit odd, and didn't fit in with the formality of everything, but whatever.

Tomorrow is President Obama's first day on the job. I want to see something happen during this four-year term. I want to see change. All the promises and ambitions he listed out during his speech - fan-bloody-tastic. I want to see them in action, and I hope that I do. I have high expectations for him. I think everyone does. I really want to see American rebuild herself and shed away the shit ass reputation she's had for the last eight years. Damnit, I want other countries to look at America like she is at the forefront of the race to improving the world, not lagging behind everyone and slowing all the progress. Hell, I want to be fucking proud to call myself an American. You know? With all the controversy and the bad decision making since September 11th, I want the rest of the world to look at America and say, "Yes!" "She's back!" "Let's work with them!"

And honestly, I'm half scared out of my mind that all this euphoria is going to end so abruptly, I won't even have time to breathe. I don't even want to think about all the possible way things could go wrong. Seriously, I really want President Obama's first term to be brilliant. I want it to be hard and difficult, but I want it to be good and worth it. Damnit, I want to feel like America's finally got it right. We're finally back on track. We're finally doing what we're supposed to be doing. We're finally working with the rest of the world, not against them.

I want to see this era of change. I want to see our new president succeed like no one else before him.

2009 - 2017, baby.
Let's make history.
