This serves as another reminder to myself that people from various circles actually read what I write on here.
I tend to use this place as a place to vent, so there are a number of rants that I keep unlisted but are still public for whatever reason. However, I needed to remind myself that I can’t do that anymore – what is private should remain private. I became quite nervous when someone, presumably from one of my classes, found this blog, so I finally have decided to take the initiative to mark all of such posts to private, out of respect for those I choose to discuss about, before what I write becomes a weapon against me. It is very true that once information becomes public, it is extremely difficult to control. So, I’ll restrict public posts to expository writings about technical subjects, as I have been doing thus far.
In real life, people see me as a leader, although I have suffered greatly from self-doubt and fatal mood swings since high school, in a time when I perceived myself as having little to lose. It has become clear today, however, that my opinion is highly valued.
Despite anything I write, this blog is here to stay. But please tread lightly if you decide to comment – it’s difficult to remember what I wrote three years ago. And remember that if you do post a comment, I read it even if it is “pending approval” – approval simply decides whether or not I decide to publish it.
