How many times have I attempted to write those words and continue for a few years, jotting them down every day? The closest I've gotten to a daily (or nightly) journal-writing session is when I was five; it was a Hello Kitty diary. I wrote about my "secrets," namely ones like, "My friend beat me at arm wrestling today, that means I'm WEAK!" (For some reason, as a five-year-old, I thought I was the strongest girl in my class and probably thought I had superpowers, as well.)
I'm also taking a journal in my English class, and usually I have nothing to write. Living in a small town, I lead a somewhat mundane life. My entries usually consist of: "Dear Journal, I have nothing to write again." So I plan to use this journal to keep track of my thoughts; those strange ones that occur to me during the day that I forget by the next.
Here are mine for today:
- I wonder if I could write an inspirational speech?
- What would my alternate-universe-self be like?
- Do alternate universes exist?
- What's the fourth dimension like? The fifth? Etc.
I didn't have that many, but they should appear in greater quantity and quality soon.
I also wanted to comment on a book I'm reading: Slaughterhouse Five. I absolutely love it, especially the symbolism and interesting stories.
That about wraps it up for today. How do I end a diary entry? I'll try this.
