forgive the intrusion - you probably have a vague idea of who I am, or at least whom I know... for a few days in the not-too-distant past, you were my personal nemesis, so I felt obligated to hate you.
Only today did I read through your journal, inspired, I suppose being the best word... inspired by recent events. I see that you're not all that different from me in some regards (innate loneliness, non-triumphant childhood), but in others you've got your wings on straight and you're flying right... congrats on being articulate without pretense, and generally avoiding the sudden desire to spit blood and breathe fire, as I do - I overcompensate with anger for the lack of more rounded emotional wherewithal... basically coming from the same generally traumatic past. So, take this as you will, on some level your character is quite inspiring.
If you don't mind, I'm adding you to my "friends" list.
