I've told myself that at some point, I've got to go through and rewatch pretty much all the Disney movies that I possibly can---because while I love some of them FOREVER AND EVER, and I'm more familiar with others, there are a shocking amount that I haven't seen in pretty much over a decade (I'm 20 yrs old at the moment, so I basically haven't seen some of these since I was a pretty little kid). And I doubt that I've seen some of them more than once, really. Part of the reason for that is because I've purposefully avoided some of the movies like the plague, the most prominent examples being Snow White, Alice in Wonderland, and Pinocchio, and I did that for various reasons that I'll eventually get into (because said reasons are tied up in my repressed emotions and things that people like my counselor and doctor tell me that I need to deal with). But I figure that, aside from the repressed emotions deal, it wouldn't be fair of me to continue to dismiss these movies throughout my life without giving them a chance to be seen through my matured, more adult eyes. So, here I am. I'm trying to go in order of when they were released, so first up is Snow White.

So. SO SO SO. Where to begin for my first post on LJ? Talking about a book that I've read recently, in this case, The Hobbit!

First, I suppose I should share a little of my logic behind creating this thing. So, as you, the potential reader of this journal, may or may not be aware of, but I am currently suffering through a bout of depression. Now, I'm on meds, and have started counseling and all that, but I've been told by my mother (who inevitably seems to be my chief confidant) that part of my problem is inherent loneliness. I mean...I don't really have anyone to truly gush at in my real life, or anyone to really confide in. Like...most of my friends simply haven't read the same books that I have, or played the video games that I do, or they are simply too far away, and we are all terrible at keeping in contact with each other. Online friends are a bit better in this regard, but are ultimately more distracting. Anyway, so the point is that I'm creating this journal to fully give myself a place to...gush? Vent what's on my mind, and about what I've been doing recently?

The second part of my reasoning stems from the fact that my doctors have told me that it's a pretty good idea for me to start keeping a journal. Pretty much same as above--this would give me a place to exercise any pent up emotions and make me stop repressing things and freaking out and having panic attacks, etc, etc. Plus, I'm physically disabled (more in-depth details will be a topic for another day...), so it's easier for me to type than it is to handwrite. So....tada! Here I am.
