I have once again decided to venture into the world of journaling. This seems like a good way to look back on what I’ve done, remember my thoughts and educational experiences and learn from where I’ve been. It also is a good way to take notes on life. Often, the biggest challenge for me is choosing a platform for these sorts of things. I frequently end up with lists scattered all over because I use whatever platform is handy: a post-it, a tablet, an email to myself, the notes on the my iphone, the notes in outlook, a checklist app on my phone…who do truly organized people choose? A notebook is the most fun to write, but long hand is slow compared to typing. A hard drive is a terrible idea. The internet is appealing because you can access it from everywhere, but it seems so impersonal…and I run the risk of feeding my apparent internet addiction. I’ll have to remember to ask Bryan if this counts or not. This journal isn’t necessarily for the world, but for me.
Ok, so what brought on this action of creating a journal today? I’d been considering it for a while, but know that I habitually drop out of this sort of thing. Maybe it was a meeting at work, maybe it was finishing a book on marketing, maybe it was aimlessly staring at wedding pictures into the evening.
