I started this journal when I was 16. I didn't think much of it, but I kept writing, and now I have a more-or-less unbroken record of the last 10 years of my life. Most of it is excruciatingly embarrassing. But I believe in embarrassment, and I think it keeps me honest, so I won't touch a word, nor will I ever make any of private. I suspect it's of little interest, but if you are interested, have fun. (I never got the hang of making online friends- but by all means, talk to me anyway. As for the few people I know in real life that read this- feel free to call me out on shit. And hi mom.)
