I'm sure everyone remembers, if not had, Livejournal. Livejournal got me through college, and the two or three years post-college, aka my Meredith Grey phase. Interpret that however you may.
Suffice it to say, right before I deleted my Livejournal, I went back and read some of my earliest entries, and holyfreakingshit was I dumb. I had so much second-hand embarrassment for my 18 year old self that I barely got past the first few months. Then I skipped ahead a couple of years to sophomore year of college, when I started to have problems with my boyfriend at the time, whom I dated for four years (with a break in the middle-- that should have been the end). Holy overshare Batman. Then I skipped another few years to the time when I was seeing, and then trying to get over, a guy I'll call crazystupidemowhinywannabeartist. That's a period of time I'd like to just erase. So... I did. It felt like throwing away or burning an old diary: slightly painful, but liberating.
That being said... this blog will be different. No more oversharing of my *deepest, darkest secrets*, no more silly, stupid quizzes, "no more tears, no more tangles." I just want to have fun and hopefully connect with some people!
