… that I haven’t written in my (physical) journal for ages. I’ve kept a journal since third grade, and I don’t think I’ve ever gone so long without updating it.
Sure, I’ve been busy, but I think it’s also because I no longer need such an outlet. As a journalism student, now I get to write every day about topics that fascinate me and inspire me to learn more about my community and the people that live in it. In some ways, then, it’s like I’m still writing in my journal - except instead of filing the entries away, I’m sharing them with others in the hopes of fascinating and inspiring them in turn.
