When you pay close attention to things, you will notice a lot more about human behavior. For example!
You can tell when people are truly in love when you see that they are attracted to their partner’s maternal/paternal sides. Don’t you swoon when you see the one you love tenderly taking care of a child? Why does this fascinate me? Because it shows that we are, in fact, animals. We’re nothing but mammals, crazed on our need to reproduce.
It’s worrying, but it is also funny.
It gives me a sick feeling on how un-individual we all are. Sex crazed organisms, nothing more. What is this life? Why am I here?? Damn it all

Over the coming months, I'll be publishing several journal entries a day in chronological order. I began journaling in 2007, when I was eleven years old. Even then I wrote as though I were archiving my life, collecting details about my world. As I grew older, journaling became more of a description of my emotional world.
I am an aspiring creative nonfiction writer who is producing very little since graduating college this Spring. But with this unusually thorough account of my entire adolescence, I feel as though I have been given a gift that has been under my nose this whole time.
This is a practice in forgiveness and vulnerability. It is also a way to laugh at myself.
