You Win (Happy Birthday to Me)

July 23, 2002 Leave a comment

I’ve been feeling a lot of peer pressure to start writing in this journal again. C’mon people! It’s only been since November of last year when I left you hanging during the final week of my big trip. I have my notes from the trip and perhaps I will write about it, perhaps I won’t.

Writing about the traveling was useful and entertaining to me when I was alone. It kept me feeling like I was sharing the trip with friends and family. Once I was literally on a trip with another person, I didn’t have the same urge to put it down on paper. What goes on the road stays on the road? Not like any of THAT went on this road, but you know what I mean.

Today is my 31st birthday. Now I can’t even pretend to be in my 20s anymore.

I resolve this year to write something in this journal every day, be it a long essay or a lousy poem. Feel free to come along for the ride.
