Just a note to let anyone who's watching this journal know that I've now friend-locked the blog instead of keeping the entries private. Sorry about any inconvenience. I was going through a very rough time in my personal life, and wanted to lock a majority of my online presence away.
But I'm working on changing the privacy settings so all posts (except maybe a select few, which have been deleted) should be accessible to anyone I have friended. If you need to be friended, please comment to this post and I will do so ASAP.
