wow... i just spent way too much time reading entries from 5 years ago... so crazy.
i'm really glad i wrote so much detail in here. i think it helps me remember things i probably would have forgotten.
so many things have changed yet so many things are still the same.
I have been slowly going through old entires and making lots of them private. I wrote about a lot of dumb stuff that I don't want my 12 year old step daughter to read about. I tell her not to do this and that, and try to teach her good values, but I can't very well do that if she's reading old journal entries where I'm doing everything I tell her not to do. She's at SUCH a crucial time in her life, and sometimes it seems like I'm the only person who cares about what happens to her.
