I am a recent graduate (AH! That still sounds weird) of Emory University. I am a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala. Cue unoriginal but mandatory disclaimer: The contents of this blog are mine personally and do not reflect any position of the United States government or of the Peace Corps.
I used to keep a journal and I realized that I am awful at maintaining one but I absolutely love going through them years afterward. I don’t share the link around, but I do frequently scroll down to see some of my older posts. The best way I can describe it is this: you know when you’re going through your closet and come across your journal from the second grade, or that letter you wrote to yourself in middle school? You open it up and read it from cover to cover and have this warm and fuzzy feeling inside, because although your handwriting and vocabulary have immensely improved, your personality is still there. You relearn things about yourself. You get to see what things were important to you. But most of all, you see how much you’ve changed and how much you’ve stayed the same. That’s what this blog is to me.
