Reading old journals

I’ve been sitting here tonight going through old journals I’ve written. I sit here and laugh sometimes, at moments I wonder who this person was? Was this person me? I wrote of beginnings, many beginnings. Of endings, almost as many. Then I read the last page of one of my journals that I ended on June 21st, 1993. Hmm maybe another idea, maybe take quotes from my old journals from years ago, once a month, we’ll see. This is what I wrote.

Well, the last page at last. Always my favorite page. I’ve been thinking of how to end this. My English 101 teacher Dr. Campbell believed the last phrase connects with the entirity of your writing. But this won’t mark an end to my writing, I’m sure there will be more to write about in the future, and maybe one day I will be looking back and reading all these pages, and this page. I wonder what my life will bring?

Beginnings and Endings

The beginning can be awkward, interesting, easy, quick plundging us into involvement. Endings are usually wise, very sad, stressful, and functional. The end is always yet to come. But I have today to laugh, cry, shout, love, and be myself so I’m not worrying about an end.

Thought that was cool that I found this old journal of 1993 tonight. I think I have about 14 old journals now.

  1. It’s nice to have something to reflect upon, see where you were back then. You may not remember that person but at least you will be able to see where you came from.

  2. Sometimes I cringe when I read my old journals. What was I thinking? But they are good time markers of where our heads were at different stages in our lives.

  3. You know I should go back and read some of mine I would freak myself out I bet.

  4. OMG Dude….we r on the same wavelength… last post was about old journals also!

  5. I’ve written many journals, but I’m afraid to say that they were “censored”. I didn’t write honestly, I wrote about the happenings in my life, but not about my true feelings concerning these happenings. I wrote what I thought a future reader might like to see, not what was really going on. So I’m disregarding most of these journals.

  6. what is that picture a drawing, photoshop, or that thing in the mall where you sit and it draws a picture of your photo?

    its good

  7. Like A&C, I am curious what generated that photo image of you. Was it a software manipulation from photoshop or by chance is that an actual sketch of yourself from a photo?
