    For and At, those are important distinctions. I think I could manage reading through some of those now. I know when I read through my old online journals, I was sad for my past self, but did not feel sad now. I know I need to be very far removed from events, from the passing of time, in order to read with a clear head.

    This is very profound. You really have changed quite a bit by that statement. So very proud of you.

    I got rid of my old journals, while it is possible I could learn something about myself, I was afraid that if I should die suddenly my children, husband, or parents might read them and it would definitely alter their perception in a negative way. Not worth the risk.

    This is why I don't keep handwritten journals. I live in a very nosy house.

    This is why I write everything in code. Code being my really crappy handwriting, which no one can decipher.

    Yes, I see what you mean. Parts of my journal might shock some people. I guess I'll have to do my best not to die.

    This reminds me, not to be morbid, but I have often thought that I should leave instructions for my husband about getting word to this forum if I should die suddenly. You guys mean a lot to me, I would hate to just disappear.

    My journals had as much of the "good/fun" stuff as the other. I was a different person then.

    oh gosh Paula, I would be devastated, don't die! (duh)

    My handwriting literally changes by the minute. In the same sentence, you can get loopy, spiky, and block. In the same word, you can get both print and cursive. English teachers hated me.

    I went to Catholic School, my handwriting is perfect, very pretty, almost caligraphy. Then got a degree in design, so I have an architectural type of printing. Both are very readable.
