Changing My Default Icon and Facebook

I'm about to do something incredibly unusual for me.

I'm going to change my default LJ icon.

I have had my "disgruntled cats in food" icon for years. YEARS. More than likely seven years at the least, as I remember coming up with the idea when I still lived at home with my parents. I've flirted with using other icons, since I have slots for 204 thanks to my permanent account. But it never lasts.

However, last night I was browsing for icons for chewbob, and I stumbled upon seeitbloom, who makes hands down the most beautiful icons I have ever seen. And then I found an icon, buried in one of her posts, that I knew I had to have. And the more I looked at it, the more I knew it had to be my new default.

This decision is tough for me, I always worry that people won't recognize my posts without my limehat cat icon. And I've had it for so long, it's almost like it defines me in some way. However, I've only just started posting again after a really long break, and it sort of feels like a new era of LJing. Plus, this icon resonates with the person I feel I am now. It's a girl waking up in the woods, and it reminds me of Myschievia and the freedom that event provided me with. (I wrote about it a little more in depth on Facebook.)

Speaking of Facebook, I'm taking a break from it for now. I recently went through some stuff and I'm working on distancing myself from someone, and it is tough for me to do that when said person is constantly showing up on my Facebook feed. I don't want to remove them as a friend, so I'm just going to disconnect for a while. I've turned off all my e-mail notifications, so if anything is going on in Facebook land that you feel I need to know about, you know where I'll be. Right here.
