Of Refrigerators and Online Blogs

For a few years now, I’ve been writing a journal book which I let lie around almost anywhere…on the bed, on the floor, under the table, under the carpet, and occasionally…inside a refrigerator. The point is, I don’t keep my journal secretly inside a chest that can only be opened with Davy Jones’ key. There’s not much private stuff in there, let alone Davy Jones’ heart. Basically it is simply a record of my daily life, a reflection of how I’m going so far, and a guide for me to be a better person (a mission that has been going on for so long, but progressing slowly *sigh). So, I decided to put some of my journal entry online. That’s because:
  1. I don’t want the precious lessons I’ve learned get lost inside a refrigerator. My website that I created when I was 12 years old still exists today, so I guess the internet is a safer place than the refrigerator

  2. This blogging stuff is really trendy nowadays, so I guess it would be prouder to say that I have a personal journal AND a blog, instead of just having a journal and a refrigerator

  3. When writing in a journal not open to public, I tend to be narcissistic to a pathological level. Online, people can leave comments, so I would know that I have crossed the line when people start voting to shut down my blog

However, the most important reason is that I want to share with you guys what I have learned. Why? Because I am born to give~ =D
