I'm a Network Security professional with two grown children and a teenager. I live in the National Capital (USA) region with my third husband, our sons, and three cats. I'm a published technical author in my field and I'm currently working on a couple of different sf/f novels.
This journal has been friends only for several years now. I'm not naive enough to think that this makes its contents "secure", but I think that it covers my butt to some extent to have it this way.
As far as the content goes, this journal is by me, about me, for me. I'm not going to censor myself, and for the most part I'm not going to use cut tags either (exceptions to that would be long quizzes/surveys or lots of large pictures, both of which are pretty rare). If the post is long because I have a lot to say, I'm not going to cut it, so please don't bother asking.
