Since investing more effort into my blog, I haven’t really been much for journaling, but it’s something I did all my life, really. I have quite a collection of them that I plan to do a video about sometime.
I haven’t done it in a really long time. At least, not consistently.
My current journal has been a mishmash of like everything and I’ve been using it since July 2012. It’s a little over half-filled.
Well, I’m changing that.
It’s nice – great, even – to have this blog and YouTube and Twitter to spout all my random thoughts on, but the things you feel compelled to write and the things you feel compelled to share are of two separate minds. I don’t wanna weigh down my followers with negative shit, personal memories, internal strife or ramblings where I try to figure out what I am thinking or feeling or trying to say.
One of the things that makes this particularly exciting is the fact that I’ve started taping things into my journals as well to give it a scrapbookish quality that meshes well with my scatterbrained thought processes.
Eventually, I’ll start a dream journal because those things are fucked up, but I think it’s important to have somewhere unpublished where your most private thoughts can go. For no one’s viewership but your own.
What are your thoughts on journals?
