I’ve began journaling again with the goal to be more myself and open. For that reason a completely private journal isn’t as satisfying, but my previous friends seem to be inactive.
I’ve had LJ for over 10 years now, but I made past posts private.I’m 24 years old, a black woman, I have ADD, and a bit of social anxiety. The social anxiety developed during my college years, and I’m forcing myself into social interactions quickly to combat it. I recently became an actuary, but I actually hate it, so I’m quitting my job within the next month and traveling around Europe. I’ll be re-locating to Chicago, so my blog will be heavily dedicated to all of this happening.
I’m ultimately trying to better myself and learning how to do the things how I want because I got sick of always longing for something due to fake rules I created for myself.
I will probably update frequently, but don’t expect everyone to always comment. I’ll probably indulge in LJ weekly with comments on my friend’s list, I try to make sure it has substance instead of commenting to be seen as active.
