Things

2 May

It’s a hard thing, for an introvert like me.  Writing is so natural.  Much more so than talking.  I think it’s because I can edit, delete, and re-write until it means what I want it to mean.  And it’s really easy, sitting behind this screen to forget that everything is just here for anyone to see.

It’s a funny thing about the Internets.  On the internet, words aren’t fleeting.  They are permanent.  Thoughts aren’t private.  They’re incredibly and scarily public.

I love you, internet friends, but sometimes there are just things that can’t be posted to the never-forgetting, unforgiving vastness, the maze of servers, and the unknown copies that the internet necessitates.

So, I’m going back to my old friend, the pen and paper.  Oh, I’ll still be here – there are lots of things I want to share with you here.  But I’m turning back to my journal and my IRL friends for the things that I just need to get out, but can’t post for the whole world to see.

    You should be very careful what you post and share publicly with the world. Privacy is such a sacred and easily lost luxury. It should be protected constantly.
    I hope to read more though, especially since I just found this…
