Hi everyone, you might have noticed that I have started password-protecting one of my entries. Please let me explain this new kid on the block.
As the readership grows, I’m aware that I’m putting myself out there for even more people to see/judge/point fingers at/laugh with/cry with/poke fun at. This blog started out as an online diary to keep up with what I’ve done during my time in London, and yes, it was and still is a useful tool to document my journey and keep in touch with my loved ones back home. I’ve always liked to keep it real on my writing, and I’ve shared some parts of my life with everyone who has come by to read what I’ve been up to. However, my life is not my own, and it is, needless to say, intertwined with others around me; hence, I have found it difficult to share things that matter to me without compromising the privacy of others and that of some of my thoughts. As such, I have always skimmed the surface of things, enough to reveal the crux so that I can share my ups and downs, my adventures and life lessons, but I could never share everything in its raw entirety as this would be done at the expense of others. And erm, yes, I suspect there has been
a stalker some unwanted attention in the equation too.
As you can imagine, it isn’t very telling of what started out as an online diary and a means to share my life with the closest friends, when I have to exercise partial censorship, so I have decided to protect certain entries, if I need to, when I have to, and keep them for the eyes of my tight circle of family and friends. Of course, if I am up to no good, I’ll have to shield my too-cool-for-adults stories from my parents’ eyes, sorry Mum and Dad…..or if I bagged an impulsive buy that would make my husband, M, frown, then sorry M, you’re outta the loop!
I hope you understand. Rest assured that I’m not going to omit a personal touch to everything I write, everything is the same, I’m just putting a little extra into this blog, so I can make it a full-fledged online diary for me and my loved ones, just like how I wanted it to be. That said, dear friends and family members, please write to me if you want the passwords, I’ll pass it along if I’m comfy! And please don’t take offence if I don’t, I’m just being temporarily arse-y. =p
