when i started this space 10 years ago, i never imagined i would see a 10 years later. over the past 10 years, everything of any significance, and even much without any at all, has been religiously documented here, whether publicly or privately. this space started with a somewhat suicidal intent -- if i didn't pass the a levels (how stupid it all seems now) -- but livejournal played a huge part in saving my life (though, of course, God did the most). which is why i pay for membership now that i have the financial freedom to do so.
i won't be as quixotic as to imagine this space will see me through another 10 trying years; but one can hope, and we shall see. happy birthday, dear journal. :)
