I recently went through my childhood room, cleaning and packing. And I was surprised to discover that I have always loved writing. I mean, I should have known that since I love writing now but it surprised me because I forgot how much I wrote as a kid. I found dozens of journals, some complete, some half written in. And I found this stack of notes with all sorts of writing on it. Name of a song. Random phone number. A quote. A list of cds. A Japanese word I learned. A date. And just any random thing I wanted to write down. I probably would have benefited from a bullet journal back then but I just used these notepads. It was weird to reconnect with my younger self and to remember all the things that used to be so important to me but aren't important anymore. It was like meeting an old friend you had forgotten how much you loved because you haven't met them in so long. Strange.
