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.
