Recently I did a little experiment in which I journaled for 30 days. Well-spoken people with blogs, Youtube channels and prominent social influencer status claim journaling gave them deeper, more profound insight into their minds, as well as helped them sort out their thoughts in a stressful and/or difficult time. After becoming emotionally invested in … Continue reading I kept a journal for thirty days.
Working on my book has taken over the majority of my life. It feels good, like how I used to work creatively in university, and I've missed the atmosphere a lot.
