should be sleeping

It's 10:43 and I should have tucked myself into bed 13 minutes ago, but alas, I'm sitting at my computer. Just did a round of blog checking. I love the blogging community. There are such wonderful people out there. I know, there are the creeps as well, but the majority are nice people just wanting to leave their footprint.

Reminds me of the chat room I used to frequent in the early college years. It's odd to recall that I never had email until I went to college. I'd never been on the internet! Computers were for typing up reports and playing very simple computer games. Who knew you could meet people from around the world, even talk to them in real time? I was hooked.

I miss those days. I used to spend hours chatting with friends that I've never seen in real life. Yet them often knew me better than those I interacted with day in and day out. There is something that anonymity does for you, it can let you be yourself, the you that you keep shushed the rest of the day. Granted, you can also pretend, but I find people don't unless they have some reason (and not always a good one).

So this post is dedicated to all those blogger friends and chat room friends of today and yesterday. Thank you for bringing your honest and open selves to the internet. Thank you for being so nice to me and my slightly twisted way of seeing the world. You are wonderful and you enrich my life. I hope I can do the same for you.

Here's my footprint, wear it well.

Very well said. I have often pondered this, and am amazed (and thankful) that I get to meet people from all over the world, so different from me (and many so much like me).
