epiphanyinblue: (teddie fo'sho!)
With the approach of my 30th birthday, I decided to take a trip down memory lane and revisit my online journals. Of my online journals, this is the only one left standing. OpenDiary went belly up without telling anyone, and I didn't have a chance to do my best to curate my own entries. Even though I didn't post too much there, I feel for the folks who detailed a good portion of their lives (and their families) and those who lost baby pictures and other precious things (short stories, pictures, etc).

Coming back here I didn't know what I'd find. Honestly I could vaguely remember a few posts that I've made and expected to find a ton of cringe worthy posts. Good thing that wasn't the case. :)

It contradicts how I remember the past - through foggy recollections and inaccurate self assessments. Which is pleasant. I ended up reading an email from a friend that I still talk to (but not enough) oh so often that made me tear up as I read it. Of course I copied it and saved it for posterity.

Reading the entries made me feel a bit like the old me, but older and, hopefully, wiser. I am going through a rough patch right now, but I know I have survived worst. I'm determined to get through it. For some reason, I feel more confident after reading my entries. Not entirely sure why, but I'd take it. :)

S sent me a message about hanging out with her in Pennsylvania on my birthday. I don't know if my sister has something planned for me or not (she's been giving me surprise birthday trips but this year she's been silent). Feeling anxious about going it.

PS- I giggled reading the entry about going to Anime USA because I'm wearing the convention shirt right now. :)

I am going to keep a separate written journal other than the one I have now. It's going to be a place where I could record the lessons that I have learned while growing up and how perceptions can change. Then later, I could give it as a gift to my future child/ren just in case they think that I'm too out of touch with their generation.
