    My Best Friend

    I have just started writing journal for about a week. I write it whenever I am sad and no one was there listen to me. I write everything that was in my mind. Not one reservation. As I keep writing it, I discover something I didn't know  about myself. It feels good every time...

    Why Do I Write So Much?

     Because if there is one thing  technology has taught me. It's make a copy Because you never know if the orginal will get erased.

    A New Introduction.

    Copied from a recent journal: I've kept consistent journals both written in books or typed up online for years now. My first semi-structured Journal started in 2007, but the majority of my personal writing is online, and often posted privately. It's a lot easier to type out...

    I Journal My Soul

    You can feel a journal when you see it. You can hear it calling to you. I imagine it's a little like what love at first sight is like. It happened with the journal I have now and I'm certain it'll happen again when the time is ripe. The moment you see it, you know. It's not...
