002. don't stop believing.  
For those who know me, you might notice something different. I have completely decided to purge everything that I have previously written in this journal. No, I didn't just mass change the settings of each entry to private, but deleted every single entry (which was close to 400 entries accumulated in the past 5 years).

Why would I do such a thing? I decided that I needed a fresh start because I feel like I am a new person. While deleting the entries, I was reading through what I had written over the years, starting from high school all the way to college. Some of the entries made no sense to me; they seemed like a lifetime ago.

And it's true...they are from a lifetime ago. I'm not the same girl I was from high school: I grew up and grew out. This is a new beginning.

What you will see from now on is me trying to find my place in the world. I have a lot of goals and hopefully, through the entries written here, I will document everything that happens to me. I want to be able to read this journal and see the progression of my life as I step out into the real world and become a part of a bigger picture.

With that said, I am going to be keeping all my friends from before the purge and I have also opened my friends only post to accept more friends if we have things in common. I still have the same interests, but am going to be having a different blog style. Some posts will be public and some friends-only. If you do wish to leave and would like me to remove you, please feel free to do so, no hard feelings. :)

Let's see how this goes, everyone.

a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside a bitch: alexis bledelbubblyrory on September 27th, 2009 04:06 pm (UTC)
I know exactly what you mean. I did that awhile ago for all the same reasons. I looked back at all my entries & I was like wtf...
So it's awesome you're doing this! :]

It's so weird and funny to read those old entries, because it all seems like forever ago. XD

Thank you!

Thank you! You should do it too (it's such a release). I'm going to rename to ~extraordinarys, but I want to try to find who has ~extraordinary and use that instead. :D

I just did the same thing a little while ago, a fresh start is nice :)

oh yeah we've been friends for awhile but I don't think we've ever talking or anything! Hopefully we'll become better friends :)
~j: cyrus; i could almost see it.voirs on September 27th, 2009 09:53 pm (UTC)
I agree, it is. And I hope we can be better friends too! I'm going to try to reconnect with everyone because I felt like I never really commented much. Hopefully this school year I will have time to do that!
