I'm a very private person, but on the other hand journaling is supposed to be freeing and how am I supposed to make friends in here if I don't expose myself (metaphorically speaking)?

I'm not really 99, I just feel that way sometimes. I'm monogamously partnered with a younger guy since 2008 (the age thing seems to be my issue, not his) and we get along stupidly well. He's very sweet, but has wicked social anxiety. A lot of my journal entries are about our dull and domesticated life.

While at work I'm a suit and tie kinda guy who gets paid an obscene amount of money to work less than the average joe. In my spare time I am a movie junkie, read a lot, mostly US history, but some wellness stuff and some fiction (my favourite fiction authors are Douglas Coupland,Pete Lefcourt, and William Deverell), I like sports (baseball nut, but I like hockey and football too. I am a fan of the Seattle Mariners, San Jose Sharks and the New Orleans Saints). I used to run marathons and hope to again someday, I immaturely collect comics (DC superheros), and I love to travel except when I do too much of it in the course of my work.

I take myself too seriously at times, and one of my biggest faults is seeking the approval of others, but I'm working on it, so bear with me. Journaling is like my therapy.

I have this weird obsession about US history, especially Presidents, especially the obscure ones like James K. Polk, James Monroe, Franklin Pierce, James Buchanan, Zachary Taylor, John Tyler, Chester Alan Arthur or Warren Harding. No idea where that came from, but if you want to discuss their presidency, get ready for an mountain of useless information.

I don't smoke, drink or use any illegal drugs, and I enjoy the company of people who can face life on life's terms. AA is a big part of my life, but I try not to be preachy about it.

I believe that life isn't about finding yourself, it's about creating yourself.

I believe that love isn't something you fall into, it's something you grow into.

I can't dance to save my life, but I wish I could.

Sometimes I have this amazingly strong sense of self and sometimes I feel very lonely.

Um, what else would you like to know?
