Am I doing something really really stupid?

Filed under: life — letslucky @ 9:58 am

I’m often pretty paranoid about what I let people know about me. Altho controlling information is always fraught, I do it all the time anyway. Especially with personal information, like my mood.

And yet here’s this blog where I’m laying it all out, raw.

Am I doing something really really stupid? Will this blog come back to bite me in the ass? Do I have to do it anyway?

I pretend to be an artist sometimes, and introduce myself as “I’m a writer!” when really all I write are technical manuals. But still. I’m driven to confession and catharsis and spilling my guts here. Is this what I’ll leave behind because I’m not capable of anything coherent, like, say, an actual book?

Heard this on the radio today and it’s just what I’m feeling. But with better words, because they’re from an actual artist.
2 AM and I’m still awake, writing a song
If I get it all down on paper, it’s no longer inside of me,
Threatening the life it belongs to

And I feel like I’m naked in front of the crowd
Cause these words are my diary, screaming out loud
And I know that you’ll use them, however you want to

— Anna Nalick, “Breathe (2am)”
