How about this one? Here I am writing my first scoop of the day. I feel I have not written in my diary for days although it is not exactly true. I have been writing – not as much as I would like to an have done so in the past. I am busier now—a—days. It works for me. The past several months, beginning January 2017, has had its ups and downs, but I am still here as often as I can. In fact, I have not had any reason to write in my diary as much as I have done so in the past as well as be online every day. I have been enjoying reading and TV time once again. I rarely watch regular TV anymore as I no longer have the cable box, but I do have the cable app on my ROKU system along with Hulu, Pandora, 3ABN, and a couple of free movie apps. I have been binge watching CSI: Criminal Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami, Castle Rock, and other TV shows lately. Now that Dr. Phil has resumed a new season of his show, I am doing my best at watching the daily program at 4 PM CST if my cable app does not have any issues, but yesterday and today, my cable app is having issues.
Prologue or Just Another Entry?
Okay, someone/anyone who reads my readable diaries at DD1 and DD2, may find me a little bit odd or wondering why I am writing a prologue so late in the game and for a diary. Well, it has come to the realization of my own life that I am doing this to protect myself and others who are in my life today, tomorrow, and in the past. What I write and share in my diaries (that are readable) are my own thoughts, feelings, and experiences, and they are only one-sided or told only by me. I do not mention names in my diary – initials only to protect those I write about and permission to use names is necessary when it comes to writing a book or story about them. It is just common curtesy to ask for permission for using a person in a story. Writing initials in a diary pleases me just fine as well.
Why am I writing a “prologue’ now? I am just asking others to respect my diary and entries and be aware that I did not create a diary for my entries of thoughts, feelings, and experiences to be abused or used by others in any way. My entries will be considered copyrighted from this day forward. Also, I read other DD writer’s diaries as well and respect their writings of thoughts, feelings, and experiences. I want the same respect, and in the past, I have come across some real doozy comments come from people who are not even members of DD. Spam messages is what I have come across as a member of DD ever since I began writing in an online diary and today I am happy to say that has finally quieted down for me.
I consider a prologue while others may call this another entry. I can see it both ways. I observe all the time and feel like I am always sitting on a fence seeing both sides of everything around me when it comes to that point in my own life. Being an observer is a job that can have its ups and downs. Knowing what to do at times is the tough part of being an observer, and in the past to present day, I have had my share of observation ups and downs. Some days I just want to scream, cry, and sleep it off while other days I want to dive into what I am doing with gusto and have at it.
I will have a copyright symbol on all my entries from now on. Please respect my wishes.
