Journal

Over the years I’ve been involved with the fandom I’ve kept a blog of sorts whose posts are spread all over the place. The majority of my posts are somewhere in the archives of Herpy.net plus some additional posts at FurAffinity and SoFurry that aren’t exactly mutual in selection. There are even some entries that are exclusive to this website. The level of disorganization exhibited by my online journal is staggering to say the least. It’s been quite an undertaking, but I’ve collected all of them and have given a complete chronological listing below.

Be warned, most of them deal with a number of personal issues stemming from my issues with depression and defeatism. Many of these journals were written while I was seeking therapy and even more of them were written in a period of time where I was constantly facing threats of potential homelessness and ongoing debt and hunger. They don’t exactly paint a happy story, in other words, but they do tell the story of my life after all. The story does have a happy ending in that I am much, MUCH, better off now than I was during the bulk of the period of time these journals cover.
