How I was feeling. Feeling lonely after moving to a
new city. Told story of my epically "being dumped".
Private thoughts towards political issues. A tweet
from a date. I've posted long blog posts about
terrible breakups and details about one-night
stands. Failing on a date. Setting ﬁre (accidentally) to
my own house. Client woes. Notices of hair growing
in unusual places. Anniversary of my brothers
death...it was out of character. Being a new mother
and how that felt. Details of my sex life. When I got
engaged. A blog about the death of my son.
Thoughts on troubles I was having with my wife. Being
in an open relationship. Infertility struggles. That I
was not proud of what I've done in the past 10 to 20
