Everybody poops... I mean writes!

So I've decided that I want to start keeping a journal in that 5th grade schoolgirl sort of way. Only not. I'll explain...

I've been really big on the whole preservation of personal history thing lately. Like I want to follow people's grandparents around with a tape recorder. Stupid stuff like that. So i decided that the songwriting thing isn't quite enough. I'm gonna buy another little notebook thing and try to chronicle events/days/feelings that I think are important. Not every day, but now and then. Could be interesting to look back on 20 years from now when I wonder what the heck i had been drinking when I wrote that one lyric or something.

Maybe its because I never really knew my grandparents at all. Maybe its because I've really been a packrat/information freak all my life. Maybe its a latent effect of feeling older. Maybe I've been listening to too much johnny cash lately. But I think i'm gonna start. I'll be posting the good ones (if any) around here so for good or bad i've made a mark on the internet too.

So to get to the true pop philosophy element of this post, I think that just about everybody can benefit from some sort of writing in their life. Journaling, short stories, poetry, songwriting, random thoughts (that never actaully are in fact random), whatever. I know that writing crap out (not necessarily reasoning crap out) really helps process stuff. I probably only think this thought because writing is now a huge part of my life, but I'm just throwing this out there, that I think everybody could gain from it.
