It’s refreshing to have a space on the internet outside of social media to share my thoughts and feelings. I’ve been yearning to go back to my childhood— the days of live journal, xanga, neopets, and geocities in the late 90s/early 2000s. Back when I blogged, built websites about Star Wars and Nelly, and created Guilds to make friends on Neopets. Those were simpler, more fun times. Social media used to be so fun for me, but now it’s just draining… everyone putting on this front of a perfect, happy life. I miss the realness of the online communities back in the day. I hope I can make open diary that space. I really need an outlet.
