Hey :o) After quite a long break from livejournal, and after dealing with years and years of being unhappy with myself, I've decided that I had better start making changes to things in my life that I am unhappy with. I'm nine years out of high school, and the things I promised myself I would do, I didn't, and the things I promised myself I wouldn't do, I did. My regrets lie almost wholly in the social arena - I've been exceedingly shy and far too introverted for my own good as long as I can remember, and my Cub, fzks_cub has a similar story. We have recently began making efforts to change our old habits of hiding away from the big scary world and everybody in it. We've also just started a weight loss routine; we will be journaling about these and many, many other interesting and fascinating things. Please feel welcome to check out my journal. I think I've started to make good use of the tag feature, so that should be a good way to quickly navigate the more recent entries.

I'm not making this journal completely friends only, but some of the juicier subjects will probably be. I've enjoyed making new friends here so far, so I hope you'll add me to your list and check out how we're doing. If you're not on my friends list and would like to be added, by all means please comment on this entry and let me know. I've also set up a naughty filter for which we have quite a few things planned, in addition to what's already up there. Reply to the entry beneath this one if you would like to be added. Replies to both of these posts will be screened, so don't do what we did and be too shy to say hello, or a welcome back :)

I think it's worth mentioning that I really do regret not being better at making contacts here the first time around. If you've ever met me online or in real life, or if you've ever posted a reply to my journal and I never responded - I am sorry, that was impolite and rude and wrong of me. Pretty much 100% of that came from being too afraid to respond. There are so many great people here and I wish I would have been better at interacting with you all the first time around. I'm genuinely hoping that I can get a chance to make up for those mistakes and to do things right this time.

Looking forward to getting to know each of you!

I'm on the left, fzks_cub on the right. Say hi.
