I was raised by uppity Southern women and an unusually-successful-with-the-ladies engineering nerd. Do not be alarmed by my strange mix of traditional and modern values.
Livejournal has changed a lot since I first joined in 2002. My life has changed a lot since then, too. I don't write a lot of public posts anymore because I tend to write very personal content. A majority of the people I have "friended" here have seen me through a wedding, a death, a divorce, and several other life-changing events. As a result of seeing how the internet has redefined how people relate to each other I don't open up online like the good old days.
