Ok, so I am posting the entire personal rant that posted as news story in our database for all customers to see. It was mentioned in my post yesterday: http://www.codeproject.com/lounge.aspx?msg=4386900#xx4386900xx[^].
As per Slacker's request:

[redacted timestamp] Yeah, I've unhidden myself from you on Facebook. I love the Punk Mince issue. Dan wants to take photos of me in my lederhosen for the fashion issue... I haven't trimmed my beard in a month! Partly because I forgot my clippers at Neil's, partly because I'm curious to see how long I can let it grow before it gets ridiculous. It's be rather neat if I can keep my keys and Oyster card in it. Job hunting? No no no, but what I need to do is manage my anxiety better when it comes to it. I work with lovely people, that's very important, and I don't dislike my job. I have an element of interest in it... Re: my friendships, yes, there may be an element of truth in it. You remember my nightmare involving me and them in a boat and how I'm always the one chucked out of it because there's no space? But how do I communicate that feeling with them? How do I make it work? But making a fuss over [redacted name] all through his birthday should have mattered, no? Nathan and I spent most of the day together on mine, it didn't matter too much that out of the 30 people I invited to come to the pub that evening 5 came... Well, okay, I do wish more had come, but the ones that came were terrific company. Okay, a wee panicky [redacted name] moment here though - sometimes one has to express it, let it out in the open so it can die, rather

[redacted time stamp] than supress it - ... I was showing Nathan something on my iPhone last night when a text from a friend to whom I'd talked to a month ago about being a little bit down sent a message on WhatsApp and it showed on the top of the screen as Nathan held it and you could see the first line that was 'Just thinking of you ...' as we hadn't spoken in a while. I hope Nathan didn't think it's someone I'm bumming ...! Ack. It's going so bloody well with Nathan, it feels so much more natural at the moment, and he's being much more open with me, I'd hate it if something small and stupid like that ruined it ... Do you still want to move to London?

That's weird... yeah I did get my Pink Mince, and I just saw you on the page now. I guess you can't see me though? Might be for the best! Have you unhidden yourself from me? *peeks under rock* Your beard is very long. So is mine. Are you going to start job hunting again? I wish I had a new job every year! Please god let me get my novel published, at least I might get a job at an agency or something. Re your friendships, I think your lack of self esteem means that

you don't think people will actually care if you cancel or shirk an engagement, when in fact they will, of course they will. Might there be some truth in that? [redacted name's] birthday: half of his friends cancelled. More than half. It ended up with just me and [redacted male name], i.e. his boyfriend and his flatmate. He was gutted. I was hurt cos I'd made such a fuss of him all day, but of course that wasn;t enough, why should it be? It was very sad. Also he hates birthdays and I may have persuaded him to have the meal in the first place. Oops. You're a great ambassador for this city! [redacted full name and phone number]
