Time for a few small repairs
Quoting album names or song lyrics in journal entries may be cliche, but in truth, right now my life really is about everything in transit, and I've come home (so to speak) with a mission.*

Everything's changing. Change in apartment, change in employment status, change in relationship status, change in the family, change in life goals...change in me. Some changes were made for me (like the end of my clerkship term (sigh), or my sister's pregnancy (yay!)) and some changes I've decided to make for myself. To that end, I'm wiping the slate clean in a lot of places, including here - with a new design, new entries, and, for now, a "just me" lock on all many of my old entries. I may go back and unlock some when I have some time, but for now, this is easier.

If you enjoy reading my journal, don't worry; I expect my new entries will be a lot like my old entries - after all, I'm still me - but after over six years, maybe it's time to metaphorically go to the store and buy a new blank journal to write in. So that's what I'm doing.

And now...back to our regularly scheduled programming.


* Thank you, Jack's Mannequin and Shawn Colvin.

ETA: OK, I'm going back and unlocking some things...

Aw, I'm going to miss the chillas.

Well, I'll probably go back and unlock some old entries later. Just for now, this was much easier for a clean start.

Anyway, I totally have new chilla pics I need to post. :)

*toasts* here's to blank journals!

Yay!

Yeah, I did a mass-private of my journal just after I moved to Toronto. Sometimes, it's just the best thing to do so you can move on without having to actually erase anything or relocate.

It's nice to start over a bit.

Eep! I will miss the ability to see old-school foresthouse.

Never fear, new-school foresthouse is pretty much the same. :) Also, I'll probably go back and unlock some of the more public stuff when I have time...

I like your old entries, and I hope you open them back up sometime. But I do understand the need for housecleaning and a fresh start sometimes! *big hugs* Here's to the future!

Thanks! :)

Welcome back! I was beginning to wonder if you'd dropped off the face of the planet, or if I'd pissed you off with nagging and been blocked.

Hope everything's (more or less) ok.

Hey, yeah - no, you didn't piss me off, and I'm sorry I didn't call you back. I got your message too late for Friday, but thanks for reminding me!

Everything's ok, just making some changes and reorganizing things. :)
