see, the problem with facebook is that just isn't enough room to fully express yourself with pissing off your thousands of "friends". here on lj, i had my truest friends. those that i could say anything to, be in any mood, and they were there with loving words. it was acceptable to sniff someone out before accepting a friend request. maybe because it wasn't such a network. you feel obligated to add people to your facebook even if you don't know them b/c they may trash-talk you to a mutual friend. anyway, it's petty and silly and i'm already tired of writing about it.
i wonder what friends i will make here, if any. i got lucky back in 2002. i was already friends with a group of girl on a forum when we jumped into lj. now i start alone. perhaps that's the best way to start.
oh, lj, how i've missed you. i've been editing and formatting my old ljbook files (2002-2006) and have become quite nostalgic about the community of friends i had then. sadly we have all parted ways since then. tis a shame. i truly miss the days when you'd meet someone new and the questions was, "do you have a livejournal?" instead of, "are you on facebook?"
