I blog again

Hey. I go by so many names now that I don't know what to introduce myself as anymore. Most people know me as Mike. Among the people from the last two companies I've worked for I am known as John or Johann. Among family I am known as Mikki. You can call me either of those names, but call me Mikki and you better have proof that you're related to me by blood.

I've been blogging since 2002 when I was a high school junior, encouraged by my classmate Angela and Mitchie who was a senior and my superior in the Cadet Officers Candidate Course (COCC). Aside from the writing part, I also enjoyed the designing of my blog and even that of other friends' who also eventually got into blogging. I changed blog names and domain hosts many times until I decided on Lee Flailmarch, which is an anagram of my name. I tried Tumblr and briefly became part of YouTube's vlogging community until I had enough of seeing my own face and hearing my own voice while editing videos that I decided to just stay with Blogger.

Though I have my archives here, I won't be making them public. They're like old photos—a lot of them are silly and painful just to look at, so I'd rather just stack them in a box somewhere. There's a great possibility I might think of my future entries the same and decide to stack them in a corner of my account too. But even if they're silly and painful even just to look at, one thing I want to make sure they are now is honest.

And so I blog again.
