Writer's Block: Give me a sign
If your astrological sign has changed, do you think your personality more resembles your current or past sign?

LJ is also WAY late to the party considering the Facebook freak out happened a month or two ago.

No one's sign changed because the people who are the extra sign have always been based on the AKA the Sidereal Zodiac and the Western Zodiac purposely left Ophiuchus out many a moon ago because it was easier to divide twelve signs into twelve months versus thirteen signs into twelve months. Plus, I researched astrological signs a while back because I wanted my characters to be as fleshed out as possible and already knew there was a thirteenth, so it didn't came as a surprise and if I had posted about it, I probably could have made the meme. Aw.

I'm much more Aquarius than I am Capricorn, though. I procrastinate. I'm eccentric and stubborn with an overactive imagination that keeps me awake at night because I'm afraid of the space between my bed and the wall because I had a dream that my dead brother lived there and was going to pull himself out. I have no interest in what's trendy and can be unrelentingly analytical. I'm absentminded in some regards, but can usually recite facts long forgotten when in a debate or argument. I don't like showing emotions and I enjoy spending time alone.

As promised.

I didn't change the phrasing or fix grammatical errors. I deleted a couple of paragraphs when they don't apply to the matter at hand.

Disclaimer two: Pictures don't do this place justice. Even when it's fully lit, it's like there's a dark cloud. Some of these photos have been edited to either make them visible or because for some reason most of the photo was black.

Rumors of haunted happenings:

Posted: Tue Jun 13, 2006 4:01 pm Post subject: I live in the Mill I have lived n the Canton Mill Lofts for about 3 years now. My fiance's grandparents worked here when it was still an active textile factory. They told his father stories of people getting sucked into the machinery, people losing limbs b/c of the machinery, and a huge fire that happened in the basement. According to his grandparents, the fire trapped over 100 people in the basement, all of whom were killed. The site is also an Etowah Indian burial site. Back in 1922, when the builder picked the site for the mill, many local tribes because upset, and it was said that they put a curse
n the land for the white man's desecration of their cemetaries. I don't know how true all of that
is, but weird stuff does certainly seem to go on quite frequently. Ever since I have moved in here, I have had the most vivid dreams. I have also been awakened out of a sound sleep to people whispering in my ear. It sounds like two men and a woman. I can never make out what they are saying though. I have seen the man in the overalls, as well. When I get out of the elevator and turn the corner to go down my hall, I can see him to my left sometimes, going thru an open doorway. Things have inexplicably shot off the shelves of my desk, and sometimes in the middle of the night I can hear glass breaking in the living room, only to find that nothing has been broken.

Facebook post - I have personally experienced something that was quite odd at the Canton Mill Lofts in Canton, Ga. I was staying with a friend of mine there and I kept hearing a ball bouncing down the hall right outside the door of the apartment we were staying in. I repeatedly kept checking the hallway, coming out the door and STILL hearing a ball bouncing down the hall to my left very closely. Something is going on there and it should definitely be investigated. But it could be incredibly hard considering that most of the residents are twenty-somethings who may get a kick out of messing with the investigation. I'd love to know what happens though!

Review of the complex - ... And the one thing that REALLY freaked us out was that we heard the place was haunted and one night me and my husband were sitting on the bed watching television and my cd flew across the room out of no where, and i guess it depends on if you believe in that kind of stuff to make you think it was real or not but i do. So, if ou want a nice place to live i wouldn't go here.

My neighbor who was a fire fighter told me stories about his rolling chair moving around the apartment. It would be in different places when he came home and when he woke up in the morning. He was adamant about it and he was a very no-nonsence type person. There was another guy on the bottom floor who talked about thinking his roommate was there and she ended up not being there but he had talked to someone. I personally had no real issues. I hated the walk from the parking lot to the place whenever it was raining and I had to carry things. But it was not a big deal. I lived on the 2nd floor and I could hear my neighbors having sex and it was like I was in their room! It was soo loud! I was living there by myself with my cat so it was not a big deal. The week I was moving out, mysteriously a pair of my underclothes were found hanging in the bathroom and I never ever hung them up on the handle on my bathroom drawer. I was really embarassed because I thought that someone must have come into the apartment to show it or did work and did not tell me that they came in. The maintenance guy said he did not come in because my dog was barking, but I have no dog, so I have no idea what happened there. The day that I decided to go to the office and tell the manager what happened, the power kept flickering on and off during the little meeting we had. Another lady said that her little boy had an imaginary friend and kept talking to an invisible little boy. Then she said she walked into his room and saw him playing with a little boy in period clothing (as in a child that worked in the mill before child labor laws were in place in early 1900's).

Every plastic bowl you see is a leftover container I bought, used once, and never got to use again because he's ruined them/lost the tops.

Let's begin our journey.

Ryan's room is a loft, so it doesn't have a door or full frontal walls. That curtain is up to block out the sun and Homer doesn't approve of his fuckery. You can see the beginning of the mess of his room, but you wouldn't think it'd be that bad.

Wishlist memememememe.
Step One:

* Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

* If you wish for real life things (not stories or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

* Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two:

Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

* If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use—or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free—do it.

* You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf—to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not—it's your call.

* There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

I copy-pasted this from fresh_paint's journal. Here's the way I see it: All these people will boycott LJ for a day or do something equally pointless; why not take a minute to do something that proves you're a good human being?

Apparently, an "artist" named Guillermo Vargas recently tied a stray dog up as a display in a gallery and starved him to death as a "statement" on the state of the world.
