What You Appear to Be
Lauren Christine Gleason

According to Machiavelli (see the applicable quote to the left) a person can be seen as one of two things: "what you appear to be" and "what you are." My purpose, when you visit this webpage, is to show you both aspects of myself. Consider this webpage as a mental notebook for all of my thoughts and discoveries that do not require prose to explain. (Times listed are in EST.)

What to do when you have three other things that need your attention equally? Ignore them all for an hour and write a diary entry, of course!

Have you ever read the comic strip "Heart of the City?" If you have been to my webpage in the past you might have seen one or two strips posted there. It is really funny. Go and read a little about it in my new diary entry.

I forgot to post an update last night when I added a new diary entry. It seems IPPD has returned in full force and I had to mention it, despite the promise I made last month.

If there's one truth in internet diary writing it has to be "tell it like it is." When I look back at my old diary, Shrews's News, I realize that I made everything sound wonderful even if I was miserable. No more. So today my diary entry describes exactly how I feel today - terrible! Want to know why? You have to read to find out but the reasons aren't all bad.

An early Valentine's greeting is now available in the form of a new diary entry.

Want to read about what I have been doing for the past week? Well then my newest diary entry probably isn't the best place to look because I deemed my recent activities too boring to discuss there. If you want to read other thoughts of mine check it out!

I now officially have a summer/fall co-op with Boeing! And I only had to wait three months for the offer. Go read about the cirumstances in my new diary entry and a few other things that have been on my mind lately.
