I used to parade around that I had a totally open journal, so that just about anything I posted could be read by anyone going to it. Now, it seems like 90% of what I say is friends only.

Funny how life changes.

That's one of the reasons I would change journal names so often. I want to be able to say things openly. Unfortunately you're right...things change and there really is just some stuff you can't say openly :(

Thinking about you a lot today. Sorry I didn't answer your text. Wasn't sure if you were awake and didn't want to wake you if you weren't.

How does that make you feel?

I say that its just apart of life, I had a policy where I'd try to expose everything and then 3 days after I posted anything in secrete I'd let it public but I don't do that anymore. Most things I say in private are either things I don't want my Ex to read and then send back to my mother or that which I really want to express only to those that care. Either way you'd be on that list :D.

I guess that maybe now in my 30's, I have more to lose by allowing it all public, unlike when I was in my 20's.

Makes me feel adult, which is a scary thing.

I think I understand what you mean.

Sometimes I still have the "when I'm golder/grown" thoughts in my head and other times I feel I'm more responsible than most of the grownups I live/work with. "Growing up", paying bills, doing the right things, seems so boring but then again its what I do now but still give me a bit of fright.

P.S. Did you ever get your trees form last winder?

I've recently begun to make a lot of things friends only as well. Largely because I know some of Joel's friends read my journal and it becomes awkward... like... i dunno. I want to have a big fluffy public blog and then an underground very honest one.. thats public, but anonymous to most.

I think it's one more reason why I have so many journals.

Yeah I started making everything private after it seemed like every public post was an invitation to peeps I really didn't want to hear from.

Then after that it got to be a thing of "well I don't mind if these people read about that, but I KNOW what these friends are gonna say if they read so..."
Then I went through "I'm going to post this for my eyes only until I can come back and fix it when I have the time" I never found the time.
Now I just recently have the time but life is such a screwed up and complicated mess that I really don't want anyone reading about it.

Funny how that all works, right?

Most of what I post anymore is friends only. So I understand what you mean.
