I hope that keeping a journal will inspire me to lead a more interesting life. That is one of my goals for my LJ, to be a sort of feedback mechanism. If I don't have anything interesting to say -- why not?

Another goal is self-expression. It's a challenge to come up with something every day, and to try not to repeat myself. I hope that by showing different facets of my life and personality, a portrait of myself will appear. I've no idea what that portrait will be like. I have a very strong impression (correct or not) of the personalities of other LJers, but it is difficult to be objective about oneself, I find.

More new family tree info: my mother's mother's maiden name was Cooper, and she was Scottish (born in Aberdeen). I didn't know my mother's parents very well. They lived in England; I spent the summer there when I was 14, which was the only chance I got to know them.
