 Dear Self,

Next time you decide to put something small like a gift card away for safe keeping, could you possibly choose a spot where you might fucking well find it in the same decade in which you put it away?

Especially if  it is a gift card sort of thing because this two fucking days of looking for it gets tedious.

No love, me.

Dear LJ,  

Hurry up and make your site Blackberry/mobile compatible because typing this entry four times over gets really tedious as did having to fire up the desktop computer and come online to correct the formatting.

No love, me.

Adding insult to injury, there is a Blackberry ad at the top of the screen as I correct this long after I should have been in bed.

Between reading the news, reading LJ, posting to forums, feeding my virtual pets, trying to ignore Gaia, checking email, checking ebay, and all the other fabulously addictive timewasters online, it's a wonder I ever get anything done.

Yahell has been making me crazy because it will not allow me to change my messenger icon.  At all.

The irony... the icon at the top of this journal is the icon I want to use on Yahoo.

I suppose explaining myself would be a good thing.  Not that I am certain I can explain myself about anything, but I can at least try to tell the tale of why I go by the pseudonym Goren.

Maybe it'll make sense.

The truth is in here... )

So, with that all in mind, I chose my pseudonym and my Journal name.  Over time, you might come to know the man behind the mask through the small reveals I will leave in my posts.  You might even think you'll come to understand me, but even here anonymously I will never take off the mask completely.  It's not that I don't want to be known... to be understood... but to let you see me completely unmasked would be to lose what little control I maintain over my balancing act.

And as a final thought, we all live on the razor's edge of life... I'm just aware of my place on it and how deep it cuts.

Are you?

Why do I keep trying to start a journal?

It isn't that I want to share my life with anyone.  Most of the people I know don't even know this page exists and I will likely keep it that way.  Some parts of your life you don't want to share.

So why journal in the first place online you might ask, and I have no real answer for you.

Maybe, just maybe, there's a certain comfort in the anonymity of the dark internet night; a certain relief in letting the thoughts that plague your mind free to float on the cyber wind like a message in a bottle.  Most people will glance at the bottle and keep on passing, some will pick it up, inspect it for value then toss it away.  But there will be a rare few who find the gem hidden in the ashes of another's anonymous confessions - those who see the beauty in not only the grains of sand on the bottle but the message within, however much of a lament the message is.

Somewhere out there, someone is seeking understanding that comes best anonymously.

I can't explain it better than that.
