I've never been able to keep a journal. Everytime I bought a diary and started to write an entry, my stories would start out happily and then, without warning, conclude on a completely depressing note, ruining my mood. So, no more of that. But, one thing I have been able to do is email my mom and my emails to her are as close to a journal as I can possibly get. So, I'm going to post them here so I can feel good about keeping everyone at home up-to-date and not become hideously depressed.
