Nickie's Nook turns Four

When a good friend gave me an invite code for LiveJournal, I don't think either of us realized how important blogging would become as important as it is to me now. It was just a place to write about my day. If I went back to read my journal entries from then, I would probably have a different view of things.

So much of my life has changed, and I honestly feel like a different person now, which is pretty much expected, going from 16 to 20 years of age. Blogging is more to me now than it started out as being. I honestly just wrote whatever I wanted to then. Now, I try to do purposeful journaling, meaning that it is all personal, but I try to think about one topic, or a few topics to see if I can make sense of them. Other times, it's more of a place for me to share things. And a lot of times, it's a lot of both, or neither.

Blogging has been a good addition to my life. I've made friends through it, and I've learned a lot through it. It's pretty amazing, when you think about what technology allows me to do. And it's amazing how something as "precise" as a computer can enable such raw humanity to express itself.

Re: 4-years-old
Well, congratulations! I think that all of your posts are meaningful, even if there isn't an exact topic associated with the entry. The bottom line is you're getting your thoughts out which we as your friends can read to keep in touch.
