This is my first real entry in more than a decade I believe. There was a point I was just using this for reference numbers since no one read journals. Since Gaia is often used by people who are looking for a creative outlet, I feel like journals could be a really great feature to Gaia, if utilized properly.
I have used this journal for some really deep personal moments in my younger life. And no matter how sad, how grievous, I will forever treasure the humanity of my younger self trying to process through a Gaia journal entry while sharing with her friends what she was going through (Many friends from high school were on here).
And perhaps I will do that again in the future, but I have really been hankering to write fiction again like I did many years ago. I'm hankering to write everything too. I'd love to start a short story on here. I know it wouldn't be great because I am rusty and it's been a while since I studied the writing process, but it would still bring me great joy. I also feel it would greatly exercise and sharpen my brain. I can see the difference from when I was in college to now, and I can't stand feeling like I have dumbed down. I always prided myself on intelligence. Anyhow, I will probably link my journal in my signature/profile when I get the ball rolling.
Ciao Gaia Peeps!
