I found that, the day that I wore my new Coca-Cola shirt, that I felt that I had compromised my own personal ethics- I wore a shirt with a corporate logo on it. This was the first time in maybe 4 years, and felt awful for violating a rule - a rather simple rule - that I had set myself.

Dumb me. I am wearing those things inside out.

EDITOR'S ANNOTATION [6/1/2003]: I think around this time I started to change somehow - my writing became more "natural" (I edited less) and I began to treat this less like diary, for the most part refraining from any tired exercises in self-pity and the like.
