Cringing at my old Livejournal Entries

Soggy wet feet and new shoes

As I keep mentioning, I have been blogging for a really long time. Over the years I had nicknames, domains, and even an old Livejournal. Today I’m cringing at my old livejournal.

I found it the other day and I have to say, it made me so happy to see it again. I also felt pleased that it never got deleted or my account got taken away for not using it.

What am I talking about? Well back in the day when people were starting to catch on with this whole blogging business, there was livejournal. A free community where you can easily write a new blog entries and have people from other journal comments and share your posts. Back in the day I was addicted to this, sometime updating two or three times a day. It was very popular and it had quite a big community.

There was a period of time in my life in my early 20s, when I writing in this that I was unemployed and I had no idea what to do with my life. I also lived at home with my parents and Richard (who was my boyfriend at the time – now my husband) moved in with us.

I stopped writing in this once I got a full-time job at my old retail job. You know, real life soon started to take over. I also eventually brought a domain and wrote in there instead – only for the whole thing to be hacked and making me lose everything!

Anyway, I decided to share some of my old entries and for the next few weeks that what I’m going to do. I’m opening this up and sharing it with you guys. Who would you like a little nosy look at the younger livejournal me? Off course you do and when I was reading this the other day, I was properly cringing at myself. Who was that person? And that person needed a hug – badly!

This week shows entries of me just starting my retail job and going about with my life.

Enjoy and please excuse the spelling and grammar mistakes.

 

*Phew* February 02 2008

What a week! *phew* Thanks god it Saturday. You see my week ends on a Saturday night and start again on Monday, so yeah I get Sunday off. Fun Fun fun. But work has been busy and I feel like I kind of let you all down by me not posting daily *oops sorry*. I’m here now.

I promise myself I wouldn’t post my first proper blog entry about some rant at work or some girl annoying me but then I thought sod it so I will rant about it. Now I’m sitting here, I don’t want to, I’m having a change of heart, I don’t want a whole blog filled with work rant.

On to other business: I’m having a little bit of a dilemma. I can’t decide what to do about Sunday, I’m having 3 options:

1) Stay at home, be a total geek and flog my clothes on ebay to raise that extra bit of money.

2) Wake up early and go to the gym and having a morning swim, be really knacked after worth and ends having a meal at a pub.

3) Go up to central London and go to John Lewis department store and use some vouchers I have – which will go toward a new ipod I really want or wait till next month.

Part of me thinks I should go with 2) but my heart is kind of into going up to central London. But then again I also want to save my money because I know I won’t have enough to last me the month. Doing 1) is looking lovely but I know I just be really fed up and there no guaranteed anyone would want to buy my crap.

Another reason I’m having this dilemma is, some friends of mine are going on a 4 month ‘worldwide’ holiday trip (lucky bitches), and there a leaving drinks and club after worth.

Now the drinks I can handle – but going to a club after worth, hmm that what I can’t decide.

I have a mild case of social anxiety, I’m really shy and I find really hard to talk to someone. I’m trying to fight it; I’m trying to be more confident. My worried is that if I agree to go to this club (which isn’t that far from home but it still a journey) I be left out in the cold, from what I heard loads of peoples are going but my worried is that they would all ignore me or go off with someone else. I feel like it a little outside my little bubble.

Plus, I heard even getting in really expensive, I don’t even want to think about how much drinks would cost. And how would I get home, last time I went out to a club -taxi fare was stupidly expensive.

Do I really want to spend all that money and anxiety on one night? But then I don’t want to let my friends down. I can’t decide – I really can’t.

Plus, the money I would use if I do decide to go out, I could use to enjoy a night meal or a DVDs with my boyfriend and buy a new ipod.

Advice peoples.

Anyway I hears keys turning into the locks so yay! My boyfriend home. Catch you guys later….

cringing at my old livejournal

Aug. 8th, 2007

Well my states of mind anyway…

Judging by my last post entry, I was in a very bad mood. I was angry with work more than anything else. I was annoyed how someone has this attitude with me all last week and I was generally was unhappy, Its all came to head one day and I just felt terrible when I came home. I thought the best way to express how I felt was by writing and I have to admit I did feel a lot better after worth.

I think I feeling like I’m stuck in a mud right now. I’m planning to go to college/uni next year and right now I’m feeling like I’m not progressing at work and wanting a year to go by so I can do my college/uni course.

Its a little light at the end of a tunnel for me which I’m hoping the light will get bigger as the month go on…

I’m also annoyed as I can’t find a decent wordpress layout for here! If anyone know of a pretty wp layout/themes let me know! and yes! I have been all through Google thank you!!

 

Sweet word of mine. Apr. 1st, 2007

I’m seriously and utterly Bored!! Ok I had a week off work, I have played on computer games till the early hours of the morning, read every books on my book self, baked half a dozens of cakes and shopped too much.

Now I’m Bored. Can’t find a themes that I like on lj now. I want to get a paid account but it now $5 a month. I actually just been having fun read all my old entries on here – damn I use to be such a ljholic, i would write about the most random and stupid shit. I need to do more of that – write random shit lol.

While reading an old entries, i realized i forgot to enter http://www.nanowrimo.org/ last year. I enter 2005, didn’t complete my story but i made a promise to myself i would finish – 2 years later i still hasn’t. I promise i will complete my story this year.

misscutie.com is really pissing me off, well the ftp part. It doesn’t seem to want to connect, Grrrrr i really want to start up misscutie again.

I need to rejoin bebedawl board, i do that today. I miss the olf folks 😉

Blah i’m still bored. I could watch the devil wear prada i suppose. *shrug*

So have you got any news of gossip?

 

I’m too lazy for my own good. Mar. 25th, 2007

At lot of peoples at work ask me

“so Anna, what do you do in your free time?”,

I trend to shrug and say

“not much, sleep, eat, drink and play too much computer games.”

That isn’t very active is it. Heh.

No it isn’t, and I have to admit it does depress me a little. I know I do need a hobby, a hobby to enjoys after work. Playing on computer games all day isn’t simulating, it doesn’t get the brain ticking. Before working full-time i use to say ‘writing’ was a hobby, an activity to get those clock in my brain ticking.

So hence, this is why I’m writing today, if i can write one post then i have overcome this hurdle. I would want to write more and then find activity to keep me interested.

I also giving up the idea of a ‘blog magazine’ for now as least (gotta take it one step as time.). So now i’m just going to have a normal blog, a Personal blog, where i write crap and write whatever crap come into my head.

Also I missed giving out my url address to peoples – kinda like a business card.

Right then. what been the bizz with me.

Out partying and drinking too much…

Naaa… not really, but having said that my store does have very often ‘night-out’, the Tuesday of last week there was a ‘AGM’ which has a presentation from some top manager of my company then free food and a disco afterworth. Needless to say I didn’t drink too much. No i didn’t! Honest. Don’t listen to anyone at work.

I am addicted to final fantasy xll, i would play on it 4-5 hrs straight. I’m a real big geek!! the graphic i think is superb and the games itself is good fun – Buuut the story is a little lame and it a bit annoying level up your character.

I am planning on buying ps3 sometime soon.

Moving on….

I dyed my hair dark redish with ginger/blonde highlight. I would show pictures but having computer problems.

Computer problem, too many to say but I’m very lucky I’m able to type this out without it crashing.

My 5 usb port all refuse to work, restart for no reason, sometime won’t let me go online….

When it not working and I’m bored with computer I now trend to read books. Re-reading Sweet valley high by francine pascal because i miss my old teen books.

I’m still with Richard by the way, he still somehow fixes into this little routine. Did i mention we now have a flat together? No. well I just did.

Don’t want to go into details.

That pretty much summed it all up folks. Anyway nice chatting to you and i hope this be the first of many new posts/ blog entries.

Ciao

 

The Wheel of life.  Jul. 24th, 2006

Ahhh my life is a routine. It like an endless wheel that keep turning over and over again.

I wake up, go to work – do anything from 6 hrs shift to an 10 hrs shift. Come home, spend lovely quality time with fella ♥, we then cook food and then before bed we watch a dvds.

Weekend I either go shopping or stay at home and play with my doggys.

That it.

Not that I’m complaining. Much. It just…i don’t know i miss waking up and spending my endless lazy day with richy. The job I’m doing is a little boring. But the money is good.

I will not complains. I’m start to make friends now which is nice, not friends but you know peoples to chat to in the canteen. So I can’t really complain.

Oh I’m miss spending my days with richy but my manager (who is really sweet) book me to work some weekend so i get day off during the week – Yay! 🙂

I will not complain; I must keep telling myself that.

I might book an appointment to the hairdresser this weekend. I want to colour my hair either a light purple or a dull blonde :/

I dunno i now hit a mental block. I really lost a lot of motivation since working both offline and online.

I don’t like it one bit.

I really am in love with Tori Amos ‘beekeeper’ album. My fave album on my ipod. Oh and Sandi Thom as well.

 

I hoped you enjoyed this and I shall be doing some next week.

    Lol, it is so fascinating to find old diaries and read them through years later, cringe is the word that comes to mind for me. Online opens up a whole new world of just how embarrassing it can be. It’s good to look back and appreciate how far you have come.

    This is so hilarious but inspiring! I’ve been writing and blogging for ages as well and this is exactly the way I feel when re-reading them *cringe*

    I have started this year to ‘Capture the Moment’ and keep a sort of a ‘livejournal’. I am blogging regularly into this journal, as a way of relaxing. Very therapeutic to write my thoughts down.

    It’s crazy how much we change, isn’t it? I used to have a site similar to LiveJournal (can’t remember the name of it right now) and if I could go back and read some of the things I wrote, I would be so embarrassed! Oh well… we live and learn, right?

    I’ve been writing a journal since forever (and it’s neat when I find one when cleaning and spend hours combing through my thoughts from so long ago) and also have been blogging since 2005. Off and On I should say. Just really got back into it 6 months ago consistently. I always laugh at myself when I read my old entries on Blogger where I started. I never did LiveJournal though. Great post.

    That’s actually really cool that you’re posting up some of your old entries. I too had a livejournal account and take a peek at it every so often. It’s amazing what one talks about when they are younger.

    Did you actually go to that party or opt out?

  • Milena
    16th January 2017 at 4:16 pm

    I love looking back through my old journals and those old small blogs I had. I laugh, cringe, you name it (my stuff was pretty lame, but oh well). Sometimes it’s great to look back on and think about how far we have come in writing, our lives, and our blogs!

    I did this a couple of years back. It was so embarrassing, that younger side of me. The ideals I had, the way I behaved. There was some good there, but I struggled so much with depression and LJ was my outlet. 😉 Great looking back on some memories with you!

    It seems hard for you to decide and having a lot of complaints when you were in your teens. You should be enjoying life and live with it to the fullest.

    16th January 2017 at 10:38 pm

    It’s funny how different we can be only a few years later, isn’t it? I was never on livejournal, but I have had SEVERAL blogger accounts over the last decade or so – some of which I’ve pulled and lost forever, and others which are still there but thankfully not something other people can see. They are pretty cringy too.

  • Cherene Saradar

    A number of years ago, I found a diary I’d kept in middle school. Ugh! It’s amazing- and embarrassing- to think that I actually thought those things. What that should do, I suppose, is give me some perspective now, a little humility. I mean, what will I think it 10 years when I read what I’m writing these days.

    I remember that I kept my diary or journal that was from my high school and when I reread it again I laugh too hard because I never realized that it was me who wrote it.

    I don’t had my old journal I think it’s gone Glad that you kept yours and it’s hilarious that you reread it.

    Looking back at old posts is a fun idea. Although, I would probably be tempted to “fix” things with what I know now that I didn’t know then.

    I think this is the cutest thing! It’s so fun to take a look back at the person we used to be! That’s why I keep journals, it’s so nice to look back and remember memories, people, places, etc.

    Ahh I found my blogger from like ten years ago and it was so weird reading what I wrote.

    This brought me right back to the old blogging days! I think a lot of us had a livejournal or the equivalent at one point; thanks for sharing a bit of yours with us!

    I do it sometimes and to be honest am always suprised at how good I was at it and am still at it, it gives me that drive to do even more… it is a good journal practice.

    Haha – this is such a fun experience! Talking about fun, good old days yet awkward stuff at the same time – I have found one of my old (paper) journal. I was not sure if to cringe, smile, laugh or just burn the thing while reading it haha.

    Haha it’s like reading through an old diary! I deleted my first two blogs, so I can’t go back and read them. But I can read the first posts from my current blog, and that’s still a little cringe-worthy. 🙂

    I’m sure we all have posts that we’ve been trying to hide from the world from our old blogs! I think it’s pretty fun that you’ve shared this with us and it’s nice that you’re preserving your livejournal too!

    Cringe worthy is very accurate when it comes to old journals! I almost feel that way about Timehop too!

    You’ve been blogging for a long time! I, too, feel a little strange reading things that are from so long ago… when so much has changed. Thanks for sharing!

    When I look at my old posts, I’m always like “oh man.” You’re brave to share yours haha!

    Journaling is great – although looking back on some of the entries you make can make you laugh at how far you have come and changed as a person. I am great that you write in a journal!
