Looking through my old journal entries

I was going through some old files the other day – namely, all my journal entries for 1997-1999ish. Man, there’s some messed stuff in there. I was thinking about packing them up into one file and sending them, uncensored, to my mom, since she seems to want to read everything I write. I don’t know though… I found one entry where I was really mad at her. I look at it now and realize that I was angry at everything at that point, but I still think if she read it she might feel bad and I don’t want to do that. So maybe I’ll take that one out and send everything else to her. It should take her a few days or more to read it. I’ve been considering making them into some kind of printed bookthing… but I don’t know. It might not be very interesting. Hard to say. I’m not Anne Frank, after all.

    i tend to operate on a what-she-doesn’t-know-won’t hurt-her policy with my mum. imho the best thing would be to keep that entry out of the pile, otherwise she might get upset over something that happened so long ago, which isn’t necessary. 🙂

      Hmm. yes, that’s pretty much what I was thinking. Now to see if I can find it again…
