So, now that I'm not in shock from recent events, I've given some thought to this whole journalling thing. It's ended up being as much trouble as joy - while it's great to get feedback on thoughts, it's lousy to end up being stalked. Livejournal has inadquate security controls, in my opinion, so I'm not going to be writing here anymore.
Besides, most of the people on my friend list are in the DC scene, with which I suddenly have a far lesser tie.
So - I'm going to be keeping all my writing private from now on. I wish I could go back and make all previous entries here private, too - but LJ doesn't allow for that... and it's too tedious to do by hand.
It's been real. But I'm off. Take care.
