disco star

(no subject)

I knew that my eighth anniversary with LiveJournal was coming up, but couldn't remember the date. I started my first LJ on February 8, 2001. It still blows me away that eight freaking years of my life is chronicled in virtually one place.

I started reading through my first entries, where I talk about checks over a grand for payday, drinking rum and diets and tequila almost every night, cat fights, hungoverness, a boy that I greatly crushed on, etc. My writing ability is nil and it's written in almost a very teenagery way. I know that I'm a very different person now than I was then... just read the posts I made April 3, 2001. It includes whining about my boyfriend leaving (though in retrospect, reading the posts I know that it was doomed and that all the signs were there), slacking off at work, and freaking getting pulled over for drinking and driving. (I still stupidly feel I was let off the hook because I seriously turned on the water works and was wearing a tank top minus bra.)

Thank GAWD I've grown up.
