I used to have no filter at all. I was comfortable with everything about me and felt that everyone else should be too. So I would answer any question put to me, no matter how inappropriate. Now, I am oddly private about a lot of things. And I can’t decide when it is the right time to disclose things about myself. So I answered with the preceding list when asked to come up with 10 things people might not know about me. I tried to make them kind of parallel to what other people had posted. Then I felt like it was sort of personal and thus belonged in my personal journal Then I felt sort of oogie about posting it in a more business-oriented context and deleted my post from the board I originally banged it out on the keyboard for. But I’m leaving it here.

Only it is the internet. And you never really know who your audience is online. This makes writing anything sort of creepy.
