happy 20th livejournal anniversary to me :)

This is it... exactly 20 years ago today I started a Livejournal. I was a college senior. I had just turned 21.

Wow, hi, I'm here. Alright, I might as well announce that the only reason I opened a LiveJournal account was that everybody else around seems to have one and I'm starting to feel left out. I have a "deadjournal" now I guess - it's in a composition book I got at Wal-Mart for $.60 and I use a ballpoint pen to write in it. Or I could use my $1000 computer for the same thing. Horray for technology! - my first entry

The voice is strikingly familiar. The spell check was not as integrated. Today's browsers would remind me to change it to "hooray". The enthusiasm is shinier. I had absolutely no idea what the future held. Everything formed slowly, and was written down here for posterity's sake. It's been a record, it's been a tool to sort out my thoughts.

I am grown up now, aren't I? I wonder what entry has that?

Here's to many more, livejournal. To the whole community of friends, to whoever helps on this site now and then... thank you thank you thank you!
