I started to keep a journal 14 years ago today. Happy birthday to my journal. To celebrate this momentous occasion, I am doing something I may regret. I am “digitizing” my journals, one entry at a time, 14 years to the day after they were written. And I am doing it on a publicly accessible blog. Micah says I am doing the world a favor by allowing them access to my adolescent thoughts. I’m still on the fence about that one, but I’m sure it will provide some good laughs — at least until I can’t take it anymore and abandon the project entirely. Or until various members of my family plot my demise. To them, I apologize in advance. I was young.
