I've got my own live journal to depress myself with.
Just look at me,
I'm living proof that,

Live journal? Not those awful Blog Spot thingies that keep on clogging up my search engine results with useless trivia about other peoples lives who I care little about?  
(sorry if that sounds a rather brutal view to take about other peoples feelings but I try to help others feel better about themselves on a daily basis. Consequently, I have heard every tale of woe that has ever been told and so I have little wish to hear more about someone else's miseries or trivia for I have heard it nearly all before. Yes, not all the journals are miserable but in those cases I still do not want to learn about the lives of people who have nothing to do with me and never will do.)

Sorry if that sounds an extremely "anti-human spirit" view but you would understand completely why I take it if you were in my shoes.

As for me, I do not actually keep records or journals. I am not allowed to write down many things in case someone else reads them and I personally do not wish to keep a record of my own depressing existance anyway!   ;)

P.S get well soon Kimmie.  8)

When cities burn and armies turn,
and flee in disarray,
Cowards will cry 'tis best to fly
and fight another day.
But warriors know it in their marrow when they die and fall,
It is better to have fought and lost than not have fought at all.

Well, I suppose it works for some people!

In my experience I keep on colliding with peoples journals when I am searching for specialist topics (e.g. SuperKarting, Aviation etc...) and there entries get mixed up with the results. When I first encountered them I clicked on a site to find a single sentance to the subject I was looking for and the rest was, well, junk (not junk in the sense of the persons writing, its just that it was not what I was looking for.)

As for meeting new friends/people. Well you have got me there I suppose. Indeed, my entry onto this forum was partially prompted by others trying to make me talk to others (I was in total isolation basically, and still am to a degree).  I was so annoyed by their pestering that I joined this forum just to keep them quiet (and because I was interested in the project!) No offence to you lot here, its just that normally I would be content just to look at the posts with a "wish I was there" feeling. Indeed, if I joined on the day I first saw this site then I would be one of the oldest members here! I was going to leave it but I knew they would be hunting to see if I had posted or not so I started and now I know all you wonderful people!  :) I could leave, I am no longer obliged to post but it would be such a waste and would probably offend you all so...

Basically what I am trying to say is that you have all been very kind to me, made me feel very welcome and consequently I consider you all friends.
