The most obvious question one asks before setting their pen to the paper, or fingers to the keyboard in this case, is, "Why write a journal?" I asked that question just after saying to myself, "Guys don't write diaries." I rebuttal my socially normative, masculine attack on pink books latched by gold lock and key with images of old sages and savants reflecting on their lives with a pen and paper, sitting by the fireside in comfort, their mind thundering images, voices, and sensations of the past. So I begin a new venture in my life, namely, one where I can digest more of my experiences by reflecting on what I thought and how I felt after bumping into someone like you. This ought to be interesting!
