I'd completely missed the date but turns out LJ is an adult now! (Well, in France and other countries where you reach the age of majority at 18, I mean). I kept seeing those LJ statistics and, as you do, I had to look for my own which is when I found out about LJ reaching a milestone. As for me, as it turns out, I've been on the platform for 13 years, 10 months and 12 days. Meaning, I've been a part of this community for almost fourteen years. Fourteen.

I'm not going to lament about all that we lost in the past years (or cry over the drastic change LJ has been through very recently), things are as they are and there's not a lot we can change, at this point, but fourteen years, you guys! I was there during the Golden Years of LJ! I remember when LJ was this talkative, vibrant and active community and when Fandom was thriving here. I think I'll always remember it fondly. I've met so many wonderful people here and made such long-lasting friendships. Imagine that some of the people I met early on are still reading this today, some of them are still among my best friends, some of them were at my wedding... one of them even became my wife! ♥

Oh man, I found myself reading old posts (like old posts) and I think I'm going to do that for the rest of the evening! (Since I had to cancel the Sense8 showing at the SériesMania Festival because of Pain *sadface*)

Speaking of trips down memory lane, I saw something on [livejournal.com profile] loki_dip's journal the other day that reminded me of good ole memes from Back Then and I don't think I could find a better time to post it than now :) "Take a screenshot of your desktop". So here's mine - I changed it recently. I'm fairly sure it'll come as a surprise to pretty much no-one who's been reading my LJ lately (yes, it's a Legion one)

Amazing, isn't it?

And, yeah, LJ used to be where it was at.
