I feel like a magpie sometimes, like I just gather up bits of other people's ideas and make a nest out of them, re-arrange them till they look like something else.

I have a very sad story... I accidentally deleted my main account! So, I've decided to start over, but it's a little lonely. And now I am on a hunt to find all my old friends. Glad to see you again for sure! :)
