While decluttering my bookshelves this week, I discovered (and I suspect many others out there are guilty of this same thing) that I have about 5 different journals, and most of them are only half filled. So in an effort to consolidate, I've been transcribing my journal entries into Word and will probably put them all together into one of those self-publishing books you make make/order online (it's a tedious process, if anyone has any better ideas, please lemme know).
Tonight I finished transcribing my journal that covered my first summer at Philmont and all of hair school. I can't help but laugh at some of the things I wrote as an 18-year old. Here are a few of my favorites:
"The past few weeks I have been working hard @ being nice."
"Well I must not have been praying enough, because I didn’t get the Red Lobster job."
"If there is a fire, I want to be here for it!"
"I don’t like being a mean person, just some people…"
"Today I cleaned the Yurt some more, did moulage on an advisor, hid him in the woods, then went on a hike to the top of the ridge."
"I feel that I am SO immature. And the worst part? I don’t know what to do about it!"
I can't believe that was 6 years ago. I still write in a journal to this day, and I'm curious to know what sort of things I say now that will make me laugh in 6 years. I guess I'll find out in 6 years.
