LiveJournal anniversary retrospect
Domain LiveJournal.com was registered on April 15, 1999. The same year, the cult movie "The Matrix" was released and the 6 billionth inhabitant of the Earth was born in the city of Sarajevo. The Backstreet Boys were three days into the release of their biggest song I Want It That Way.
My overall Live Journal experience has been positive I never knew it was Russian until recently. It is probably the best thing to come out of Russia since vodka. There seems to be no political interference on the non-Cyrillic side. As their user base is global, I couldn't understand why they would only have a single currency store.
Why I started this journal here.
started this to write more, but I forgot what brought me to Live Journal.
After I rekindled my love of the Backstreet Boys, it inspired me to write regularly in late 2020. This blog is now multi-purpose as I write about all of my interests.
I am glad I started writing regularly again because it t is my best mode of communication. When I was shy, it gave me a safe outlet. A professor thought I was more expressive in writing, and I probably still am. Talking gets me too excited so it can be overwhelming. Therefore, I now understand why I had been diagnosed with a mood disorder instead of an anxiety disorder. They may have seen my anxiety as a symptom rather than the root cause of my problem. I have experienced it sometimes, especially when I am overwhelmed with the need to talk. Even though and my newly acquired assertiveness, I need to learn how to channel it properly. I think public speaking is too formal for me. Academic writing was a weakness that made me question my writing ability. I have rediscovered the joy of just writing for pleasure.
