Crazy how today would have been my third anniversary with Dee and that I gave his current love interest advice on their relationship? Weird.
Tonight is a bad night. I’m so lonely I can hardly stand it. I just miss Daniel so much. I feel stripped of all my energy. I feel incredibly indifferent. I just want to feel something other than nothing. I can’t even cry anymore. I’m all empty.

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.
