Yes, I did it. I decided that it was worth it considering I use LJ pretty much daily. And it's not like I have a buzzing social life to spend my money on.
I still have 85 days of paid time left (with 78 days of extra userpics) which I can now give away to someone. Anyone want it? after_thought16 - want to experience the joys of a paid account?
Now I just hope I'll be able get a job soon and start making some money. Preferably working with children. For the past couple of nights I've dreamt about being back helping at primary school. I'm so happy to be there, but then I wake up and feel very disappointed that it was just a dream.
