This past week, a friend reminded me of my old LiveJournal, the web log I kept all throughout college. Reading it was hilarious—a total walk down memory lane that was riddled with both hysterical laughter and cringes (oh, that early-20s angst; oh, song lyrics galore).
It’s funny how I remember almost everything I wrote about, though—from the school papers I was working on to the late-night IM conversations with friends; the sad times (my beloved uncle’s passing) and the happy ones (graduation and my first “real” job). I also discovered that I tended to be a bit more creative in my writing style back in the day, something I kind of miss. Working at a magazine, particularly as an editor, will certainly force you to write more clearly and succinctly—a good thing—but there’s something to be said for a long, semicolon-laden, Virginia Woolfian sentence, too. Hm. Maybe I should start telling more stories here…
Anyway, what are you up to this weekend? I’m finally feeling almost 100 percent back to normal again, and tomorrow I’m planning to take a trip out east to a new-to-me farmer’s market I’ve been wanting to go to for months. The drive out is gorgeous—all green farmland—so I’m going to try to stop and take some pictures, as well. I’ll share them here next week if they turn out.
Have a wonderful few days—and enjoy those extra minutes of golden summer sunlight the solstice is giving us tonight!—and I’ll see you back here Monday. xoxo
