Friends Only

For a long time, this journal was publicly available, but after several years, it is now friends-only. I guess I just didn't want to be so paranoid as to lock everything down, but I've been convinced (by a boot to the head) that it was probably the smart thing to do.

I'm a little sad about this, because I've always liked the slightly exhibitionist aspect of putting my life out there, the boldness it took to say "Here I am, and I don't care what anyone thinks." I tend to be fairly reserved in-person; it was freeing to be able to put things here and know that complete strangers might be interested by the things I say.

Maybe eventually I will revert this journal to semi-public. Perhaps certain things should remain locked, things I wouldn't want family members or coworkers to read, but everything else can come back out of hiding.

Until then, feel free to leave a comment if you would like to be added as a friend. No current friends at the time of this posting will be booted. And of course, I do reserve the right to refuse friend requests. I doubt it will be an issue very often, but y'know. Just for the record.
