I began this journal in 2004 & was heavily into it through 2006. After which I let it basically languish, only posting a couple times a year. I have recently decided to return. However, as I revisit it, I am appalled by the level of high angst running through old entries! Hopefully, this time round i'll take myself less seriously and have some fun!

Most of my entries are now "friends only" but I heart making new friends, so comment if you wish to be added!
