7 years and counting

For almost seven years I’ve been writing in my Livejournal account. A couple of nights ago I decided to venture through it when a friend of mine had asked what Harry Potter movie we had seen together. I knew I would’ve blogged about it, so I went through the month I figured it’d be in, and voila. I read about what we did that day, the night before, the night after.. etc.

It was sort of melancholy rereading my own private thoughts. Some of it was a bit depressing to read (see: breakups) but majority of it made me miss being 18-20. I wasn’t really careless or anything, but I definitely was more confident with myself, and happy with my life and where it was going. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to imply my life isn’t what I want it to be right now, but it does have a few negatives that I’d like to work out.

I’m also going to start job hunting again. Though I’m still really unsure about that. I love being a freelance webdesigner. It’s an awesome feeling that I can bring in all of this income on my own, and that I am my own boss. But it’s not a reliable source of income that I can get back out on my own, to pay all the bills and rent. Right now I just pay rent, and the rest of my money goes towards whatever I feel like buying.

My other goal is to start keeping up with this website more. I’ve got a new design that I purchased from Jacky because it was ridiculously cute, so whenever I can get around to tweaking it, that’ll replace this garbage. Hopefully a new design can inspire me to blog more too. I’m thinking that I’ll stray from the usual personal entries, and post more about projects, tutorials, and other useless shit I find on the internet.


  1. HAHA I know what you mean about being able go look back at your blogs/LJs and see exactly what you did on one specific day YEARS ago! I do that too! 😛

  2. I wish I still had my blog entries from seven years ago, but I tend to delete all my entries whenever I feel like I am not sure what I have written (for some reason I am deadly afraid that everything I write on my website will be used against me somehow)..

  3. I wish I could read my old blog entries from years ago. Well actually I can read some of them using the Internet Archive but still that’s not the same. And I wish I could finally figure out how to customise LJ because every time I try to it loses some of its functionality and I have no idea why. X_X It’s great that you have a high enough income to pay your rent, and it’s great to be able to be your own boss. 😀 Good luck with the new design, I’m looking forward to seeing it.

  4. I’ve had a livejournal since 2001, and I love going through my old entries. I love looking back and thinking “why did I do that..?” and “wtf was wrong with me?”, it’s always fun. I love reading about my old crushes and break ups, it’s so weird to read how I thought about it then.

    Good luck on the job hunt, although being ones own boss sounds nice. I’d like to find a better paying job, but I am too content and used to working at Target to do that just yet.

  5. Oh, is that the one she was talking about on Snark? That is definitely incredibly cute. 🙂 Can’t wait to see it up!

    I know what you mean about the melancholy-ness of previous LJ entries. I go through that every few months myself. 😛

    Lots o’ luck on the job search, I can see why it would be frustrating for you because of the freelancing freedoms. Maybe you’ll find a flexible job that will still let you keep that freedom! Always nice to hope. 😀

    I’m glad you blogged, I’ve missed your posts. 🙂

  6. Good for you for keeping your entries thus far!! I can only find my most private thoughts in my actually hand-written journals that has been scattered everywhere. I can only find bits and pieces of daily events through saved html files, but not all ways. *sigh* how I wish I stuck with my domain at those times.

  7. Hey there! Hmm, I do like the blue of this, though! I’m curious to see the new design, haha.

    Yeah, sometimes I do that…but for me I feel so immature whenever I read stuff like that. However, you are older so I am sure that has something to do with it, ha. I hope everything goes better from now on! Take care :]
