Journaling

4.06.2011
I've been writing in a diary of sorts since I was in first grade. I don't know why I keep them. Don't know why I felt a powerful urge to write, to save and continue, but I did. It's the saving part that gets me the most.

Why on earth did I save them when I can't read them? I mean really can't read them. Every entry circles around some douche bag from my past who's done me wrong in some sort of way. If a stranger were to find my collection he'd think I was a boy crazy loon that did nothing else with her time except for fawn over jackasses. For that reason alone, I don't read. I can't help but write...but it's easier to purge than it is to devour in this case.

I recently read an article I've been saving for too, too long from Oprah's email blasts. The article was a look at her journaling through the years. My jaw dropped and my mouth's corners curled into a smile because that woman--my shero--used to write EXACTLY like me. If Oprah was a journaling boy-obsessed twat like me and still turned out OK then so be it, I'll stop beating myself over the ish I've splashed across the pages.
