I used to write all the time. Mostly about my day and the few things I did here or there. I have journals upon journals of life as an adolescent, embarrassing admissions of crushes and obsessions. More interesting reads on culture and culture shock as I studied abroad. The monotony of a real job and the newness of a marriage. And then I just haven’t been able to write much the last few years. As a kid your life is constantly changing and growing. It doesn’t stop as an adult. But we become more ingrained in routine and expectation. God forbid we stop growing or changing – but we often fight it tooth and nail.
Lately I’ve felt like I actually have opinions about things. Or I want to have opinions on things but need to read and sift more. So that’s my plan for this space. To talk some of it out, to bring some of it up and to engage with others (maybe). Or maybe I’ll just write a lot to myself and hopefully figure a few things out.
