I haven't been posting as much on here in the past year about my personal life, aside from some piped Twitter updates. Part of that is because much of my life is my job nowadays, and I'm not always comfortable talking about work details in a public forum (and while I use filters now and then, I've found that when I have to start locking things down, I just end up talking to people directly). Another part is that I don't often boot up my laptop at home anymore, when I have free time. However, talking to some podcasters at Dragon*Con about airing their personal lives (George Hran, Soccergirl, JC Hutchins and Evo Terra, specifically), I decided that I do want to get back in the habit of writing about my life. It's a stress relief that I enjoy, and it helps me to look back on my life and have some perspective. I've had this LJ for five-is years, and I still find it has utility.
One of the things that this blog has caused is a sense of quasi-celebrity that has only increased since I started work at WW. I've never quite gotten used to people coming up to me who now who I am and what I do without me knowing them at all. However, I realized that I am becoming more used to it: it's something I can anticipate and roll with easier than I could a year ago. I think my retreat from my LJ was a response to my initial disquiet, but it's time to get back on the horse.
Just something bouncing around in my head today as I sit at he sick today, playing with my iPhone and feeling disappointed and frustrated with people.
