I never thought I’d be blogging for such a long time and my focus has definitely changed from having a blog I wanted people to read to something I mostly just use to note my thoughts down or vent anger. There are many posts that I would rather not see any more and I have deleted a handful of posts over the years. I have also modified a number of posts to remove references, place names or people, even though I have never used anyone’s real name if they didn’t want me to.

It has also gotten me in trouble with friends before when I blogged about something and they thought it was related to them. All but one time it turns out I wasn’t actually referring to them. On the other hand I have received great advice in situations when I needed it.

I have met many great people through this blog and has a whole am incredibly proud of it and especially that I have kept it up for this long.

Huh.
