From time to time I Google my name to see what links show up. After sorting through my findings, to make sure nothing too inappropriate is accessible to those outside my circle of friends, I go to the sites that have made my info public and I either erase whatever they have on me, or I make the info private. Then I Google once more, using my email addresses and usernames and again change setting or erase info.

Today (and I don't know how I didn't find this before), I found my old Friendster profile. Perfectly intact and untouched since 2003, I felt as if I had discovered some rare gem, a little piece of the past, a personal time capsule. 

Sometimes I feel as though I haven't changed over the last 10 years. Sometimes I wonder if I've matured at all, if I've grown in to a better person and advanced in life. But, when I find things like this 7 year old profile and I read how I interpreted myself and my life back then...I realize I have come so so far. This is exactly what I needed today, by the way, to get me motivated and moving in the right direction. 

Annnnnd for shits and giggles, I decided to copy and paste my profile here before I go to town on that baby and delete it foreverrr...
