I feel like all truly bad confessions start like this but... I swore I was a person who would never have a live journal. It's not really that I think they are such a bad idea or even that I thought I wouldn't really enjoy keeping one, but I saw it more as a contradiction. The thought of a person keeping a public journal just seems strange...like isnâ€™t the point of a journal to be private, to have no one elseâ€™s opinions to worry about. I always thought live journals would inevitably lead to insincerity in what a person was writing. I guess this isn't really true for all people but I was (and sort of still am) fairly sure it would be for me. In any case, I have fallen to peer pressure and started one. I can't avoid it any longer because it seems that all of my friends near and far have one. In a time when I don't get to see the people I love quite as often as I'd like to I guess it just seems practical and kind of fun. Hopefully my preconceived notions about live journals will turn out to be wrong. Either way, I have conformed which is something that I have always prided myself in not doing. At least I can say the thing I broke down on wasnâ€™t sex, drugs or that fast lifeâ€¦just a live journal.
I will try to update this baby as often as would make it entertaining and no more than thatâ€¦God knows my life is not exciting enough to maintain anyoneâ€™s interest daily. Weâ€™ll see how it goes. For now take care and I will fill you in more later.
