There was a time when you didn't just spew your feelings out in awkward Facebook statuses for the world to ignore. In the early days of the Internet, when you wanted to share something that was just too emotional and deep for a simple Myspace post or an away message, you took to Live Journal. Many prolific and competent bloggers of today got their start complaining how their crushes didn't notice them and extolling the virtues of Sum 41 on Live Journal. We're pretty glad that Live Journal has given way to far more digestible modes of expression like Tumblr, but we will forever treasure the platform that allowed so many of our friends to embarrass themselves with long, rambling emotional essays they instantly regretted posting on a public forum.
