My Online Journal

Today’s MVB prompt is Journaling!

Blogging is, of course, a form of journaling, especially with some of the very honest poems that I have been posting. Offline, I write a lot more poetry, usually at least 4 or 5 poems a day, in response to prompts and/or what happens during my day. I also write in a normal journal daily, which I have been doing since December of 2007. 

Part of the reason why I put so many poems about depression and stuff on here is precisely because I don’t know most of you in person. Some of my “real life” friends also read my blog, and it can be a bit awkward. For example, this conversation occurred a week or two ago:

Friend: “How have you been lately?”

Me, because I seem to be unable to lie: “Uhhhh….”

Friend: “I saw your blog post.”

Me: “Yeahhhhh….that….”

I also put a lot of Jesus-y poems on here because I am very happy to be a Catholic Christian. Yes, my life is messed up, far from ideal, but Jesus makes it better; when I have no hope, He is the hope. ❤

I think it’s kind of funny that those are my top 2 topics: depression and Jesus. I think the topic that wins third place is coffee.
