I do most of my updates at school. Since computer access is at a low, low level.
I try not to rattle about the boring stuff in my LJ, but some things stress me and I have to get it out through words. My profile is set to friends only. I always comment back. I'm a graduating senior in high school, and I'm going to have to start off at the bottom of the pecking order in a few months. I'm a little worried about the transition.
I like online friends more than most of the people in my life. I don't take bullshit, and I give honest opinions. It takes a while to get my loyalty, but when you do, it's worth it (but that usually applies to people I meet in person).
I connect to people better when all the bullshit is burned off and I get to see the meat of the person.
