relax, its just a phase

6 March 1978

alright? i'm phantomlimb, or "neil" to people who know me.

i live in my own little world for much of the time, a place where other people are just minor distractions and nowhere near as interesting as whatever nonsense i'm thinking about. despite my age, i'm still not really sure about life and how i see myself... maybe that's the reason behind my blogging. i want to record my evolution of thought on a range of subjects.

i'm not sure if i'm a pessimist or an optimist. when asked if the glass is half full or half empty, i'm inclined to believe it's just twice as big as it needs to be.

anyway... i enjoy making new friends, but because of the likes of facebook, myspace and twitter, livejournal isn't very popular anymore. livejournal is more for people looking for a little more from their social internet experience, and that's what i'm trying to offer.
