In my defense, I did fill a separate journal for my 18-month mission. At least I have that. But overall, not impressive dedication for a girl that enjoys writing, eh?
Reading back through this record has brought me to three conclusions:
- I'm emotional, bipolar, and dramatic at every single age. 17? 25? Pretty much the same.
- I'm ridiculous. Simply ridiculous. There was a 5 day stretch where I went from considering marrying one guy to pretty much being in love with another guy. Oh, Jackie at 20... you can wear a person out.
- I've learned a lot in 13 years, mostly from stupid mistakes. But valuable lessons still.
So I'm glad it's filled. But as I said in an entry back in 2002, may my posterity not think I'm psycho.
