I do not feel the need to share much about who I am now. This blog is about who I was.
For roughly the past 6 years of my life, I have been keeping a journal. It has taken various forms (Composition notebook, Word document, Livejournal, DiaryLand way back when …), but it has never been completely public. I have written only for myself.
However, I guess that is about to change. I don’t really know where this will go or where this blog will take me, but I do know that I am interested in memoirs, memory, journaling, and narrative psychology. Because of that, I’m going to start posting my journal regularly – only it is going to be 4 years behind present time. The names are almost always changed, and I have tried to leave out specific locations.
New? Start at the beginning.
I hope that readers will be able to relate to this or benefit from it in some way. I also hope that growth is visible in my journal. Although it may seem trivial at times, whatever I wrote was genuine and important to me then. I suppose you could consider this the diary of a typical teenaged-girl growing up in a city in the U.S.
