Don't look back at it

Okay, I had the terrible idea yesterday to read every single entry from my commune days in hopes of finding good stuff to post on the Twin Oaks Journals page.

Bad idea! Bad, bad idea! Not only was it physically exhausting to read a computer screen for so long, I was also left with a very sore neck and shoulders. I took a bath last night with epsom salt, baking soda, and eucalyptus oil which really has me feeling better today. Gonna go some hip and shoulder opening yoga today during my lunch break at work, which will also help get me loose again. On top of the physical stuff I also was left in a pretty crummy mood, though there were lots of fun things that I read about as well such as walks in the woods, pond time and swimming, cooking meals, hammock hangouts, holidays, dance parties.

Getting ready to start school again soon - August 17th, only 11 days to go! I'm looking forward to being more active again, instead of just driving to work where I stay seated all day. I'm actually excited about walking around a college campus again. What's even better is that my classes are only on Wednesday and Thursday nights, so I can continue working for the time being, which I need to do. I'm also SO JAZZED on having a student fitness center at my disposal again - time to do some water aerobics! I'd been running and doing yoga, but my joints couldn't really handle it, plus I ended up with some awful bursitis in my hip. My doctor recommended swimming/water aerobics, so I'm excited that I'll actually be able to do it.

Blogs are weird. Reading back I'm amazed at how much information I gave regarding my sex life and my sex drive. I was practically obsessed with sex and had no chill or awareness of the concept of TMI. I think it also speaks to how the internet/livejournal/online blogs weren't so big 10+ years ago, knowing that this blog would probably never be seen by folks other than my "friends" made it feel okay for me to name names or be really blunt about sex, drugs, etc.

No idea how open I'll be going forward. I'm extremely paranoid now about the online world and would hate to lose a job or something like that just bc someone found this lj and discovered that I used to be a slutty hippie.

I was just thinking about how paranoid and stifling the internet has become now days, like it's purpose is to snoop and spy on others. I was having a rough day yesterday and I never feel all that comfortable on any of the regular social media sites to post about real life things.. So I popped up livejournal, was amazed to see it still there unchanged and wrote myself an old school emotion fueled post! It felt great. I haven't felt brave enough to go back and read my old posts though. I'll leave that in the grave for now. Good to see someone else on here within the past year though.
