Just between Us

It's been a while since the last time that I've written here. A couple of months is nothing in the grand scheme of things, but substantial enough that I'd like to think that I'm a much different person than I was in January. That's not a bad thing -- growth is something one shouldn't shy away from. I only have about a year until my brain fully matures (what then?), so I'm hoping that the wrinkles that I leave in my brain now are good enough to carry me through the rest of my life.

I'd like to think that I'm a much more understanding, kinder, and gentler person now than I was before, and I strive to be more understanding, kinder, and gentler each and every day.

While we are on the topic, I've been asked why I don't update more frequently on social media or on my blog, and the answer is that I've grown to value privacy and discretion. As someone in my early to mid-20s, my coming of age coincided with the growth of social media as a platform, and I think most people my generation went through the phase of updating every single one of their moments on MySpace and Facebook during their teenage years. Lately, however, I've found that leaving some to imagination brings me more happiness than the other way around.

I do understand that some suitors become curious. If you're one, I deeply appreciate that you're thinking of me! I'm doing extremely well, and I'm happier than ever before -- really. If we're deeply acquainted, feel free to drop me a note every now and then. I do want to stay in touch with friends, old and new. I will continue to write here and on Twitter, so please check in there. The best moments, I believe however, should be kept behind closed doors, just between the two of us.
