On Blogging: Why the emo?

In the past, I've tended to only write online when I was feeling particularly emo, depressed, cranky, pissy, or otherwise unhappy. I've had my livejournal for five years (almost exactly, in fact) and while looking back at it is both enlightening and entertaining, it's also depressing and more than a little embarassing. It doesn't exactly showcase my proudest moments, and while I suppose it does offer a snapshot of a few pieces of my journey, it's most certainly not an accurate reflection of my life.

So, inspired by an amazing single mom, a vivacious bohemian butterfly, and a practical, big-hearted atheist, I'm starting fresh. I'm embarking on an exciting, scary new chapter of my life, and I think it's worth writing about. And while I don't promise that I'll never be cranky, whiny, bitchy, or unhappy, I hope to be far more likely to share an abundance of wonder, contentment, satisfaction, and joy.

That's my hope.
