Quote Du Jour:
"If anything is certain, it is that change is certain. The world we are planning for today will not exist in this form tomorrow." - Philip Bayard Crosby, author.

I don't know how it got in here and I don't know how I'm gonna get rid of it, but the gnat-like bug that keeps flying around my computer screen must die... or at least get the hell out of my room. It's driving me crazy. I've done it all. I've swatted and squished but the little rascal is still here. Ugh. ((0044))
It's getting harder and harder to use these damn aliases in this journal.

And I've been giving a lot of thought to popping the hood of this journal and doing a little work. It started at the first of June as a way to vent a lot of stuff... It turned into a fairly decent record of my life... And now, some of the days, it doesn't make a lot of sense. It seems that it just serves as something to make me write stuff about how life sucks. And life doesn't suck. I'm really very fortunate. But you would not think that I think that by reading this journal. I'm just not real sure what this is supposed to be anymore... or what I want it to be.

Is detailing every event of my life that exciting? I don't think so. Is filling every page full of my opinions on life that exciting? Probably not. Am I writing this for myself or for the few folks that stop by? It should be the former... And if I'm writing for myself, what's best for me? Writing about my daily life in minute so that I can look back and see what I've done... or writing about whatever is on my mind and in my heart... so I'll know the feelings and thoughts I've had?

Maybe my friends are right... I do overanalyze things. ((1720))

Should I be real?
Should I use folks' real first names?
Do I have the dumbest aliases of any journal on the web?
What should this site represent?

I don't know.

I may have some extra time to think about these things. Classes start on Wednesday. I'll probably wait until Tuesday to drive down and check into the dorms. The problem with checking into the dorms is that I want a private room. I had a private room last semester. And I'll probably have a private room this semester. But even though I asked for one and there is plenty of empty rooms to give me one... They will assign me a roommate regardless. I'll then have to wait around for about a week with in a room that I won't stay in and with a roommate I won't keep. I'll go down and fill out a card and probably get reassigned to a private room. Isn't that a hassle? Because I know that I'll probably have to move once I get to school, I don't want to take anything big and heavy down there at first. My computer falls into the big and heavy category. In other words, there may be a week or so without an update. I'm not sure how I'm going to do it yet. I have no plan... except that I plan to "wing it and sling it." Regardless, it will give me time to think about what I want this journal to be now that I've vented. ((1736))

I've been saving this link and figured I would post it here so I could delete it from my quite lengthy bookmark list. You should find it a tad interesting if you like to surf on company time... Don's Boss Page ((1816))

Who doesn't love a purity test? Yes... those are the things that can confirm what your parents have long since suspected... that you are corrupt. Anyway, here is a page full of purity tests. I took the test at the top of the list (the 100 point purity test). I was 37% sexually pure (63% sexually corrupt). The average purity level for the test was 56.5%. Oh yeah. There is something to write home to mom about, huh? heh, heh. ((1822))
I had bookmarked several journals and have been checking in on them every now and then. I'm trying to find a few new ones that really interest me. During my search, I've come across several journals that have moved. Their index pages now say something along the lines of, "if you want to know the new URL, e-mail me."

Is that an attempt to find out how many loyal readers there are? Or is it because the journal has been discovered by someone the writer knows. Either way... why would you do that? Most journals are on web rings anyway, so folks can still find you without e-mailing you... and if you are ashamed of something your write online, you shouldn't have written it in the first place. ((1841))
