Painful journey through the past, editing is.
I'm going back, and any entry which is remotely personal, I'm locking up on the "friends only" list. I edited that list, too - thanks to Sayurisayuri I now realize that you can only read my friend entries if I have decided that you are my friend. So ... that list got edited.
So anyway - I'm going back and changing all my old entries, except for the most general (or worthwhile ) entries, that remain public. Going through this process means calling up each entry in order to edit it, and change it to "friends only". Which means that I can't help but re-read a lot of them... the ups, the downs. And the things that meant an awful lot to me - that still do, in fact - but are relegated now to the past.
I can't edit my past, like I can edit my journal - no matter how much I might wish to.
So, if you're a public reader, and you want to keep reading - you've got to get an account and then ask me to list you as a friend. Sorry for the inconvenience. I used to write in a way that was generic enough for anyone to read, I thought. But it turns out many of my thoughts here are rather personal, and there are people I don't want sharing them. Some things will remain public, I suppose - just the light and breezy entries, the funny ones. Not that there have been many of them lately, but I suppose it's not too ridiculous to think that there might be some again, in the future. Hopefully soon.
Till then, I edit.
