    Strangely So...

    I'm still an ackward person online or off. But, here I don't feel quite as ackward. There's a lot less "small talk" and better stories online. I feel more myself online because there's more of a social ease in the online environment. I feel more willing to talk and share than I...

    Hell if not then I won't be keeping tonnes of

    blog sites anymore. I express myself more online. Although I admit I do anything to keep my photos odd looking to avoid getting caught, behind the images writes the real me. And I write to my heart's contentment. Avoid getting caught, yes. Because I also rant here about people...

    It's Easier

    It's a lot harder for me to talk about things than it is for me to type about them.

    This is soooo true. I express myself in ways I

    never could irl and can indulge in it. But, honestly, one of the things I like best about it is other people are the same way. Obviously, it's limited, but there's the potential for so much more sharing without the complications of real bodies, families, spouses, jobs, etc.

    It's easier to express myself in text.

    Plus no one knows who I am.

    If the people I knew in real life knew what I

    liked I think they would hate me or something. I like strange things. Nobody knows about my obsession with masks. Plus I get to meet people with similar interests as mine.
