This is a copy of my LiveJournal bio.

…for now, feeling as though my own brain were unhinged or as if the shock had come which must end in its undoing, I turn to my diary for repose. The habit of entering accurately must help to soothe me.

Yes, I have tricks in my pocket, I have things up my sleeve. But I am the opposite of a stage magician. He gives you illusion that has the appearance of truth. I give you truth in the pleasant disguise of illusion.

To begin with, I turn back time…

Only instead of turning back time to the 1930s, I turn back time to the age of the Internet where LiveJournal was the primary means of connecting with people, local and far-flung, when real names were not required, before America had a black president or a woman and a reality show host ran for president. When landlines were cool and common, when sending letters was not so rare a thing, when the Internet hadn't been overrun with cat memes (although I love them so) and partisan posts on Facebook with comment-thread black holes.

Having been on LiveJournal over a decade, I have had many, many iterations:
  • In 2002, I was [ profile] what_you_got. Back in those days, you had to have an invite code; mine was provided by [ profile] jordandoucette.
  • Sometime in 2003, I opened this journal under the handle sixties_child. Until sometime in 2004, I posted regularly very public and detailed descriptions of my abusive household. I deleted most of these posts following a call to Children's Protective Services. My mother compelled me to delete these entries. I wish I had not and that I'd only made them private.
  • In December of 2011, I was reborn as [ profile] quietpathos.
  • Owing to its anonymous nature, I have always been very truthful here.
  • Despite using a pseudonym in handle and name, Tom (or more accurately, Thomas) is actually my name. I'm an open book.
  • I would desperately love a Permanent account for no reason other than the status. I know that nothing in this world is truly permanent except the promise of death.

This is the Internet manifestation of the room of my own. Friends only; comment to be added. I usually add almost anyone who has similar interests.

I don't update that frequently, but that may change.
