The Value of 10 Years of Journaling

Louis Savalli, a regular reader, reached out and inquired about guest posting here. When I took a look at his site, one thing that stood out to me is he's been journaling for 10 years. I asked how his journaling has evolved and what he's learned, and this post was born. Here's Lou -

We all do what we think is best in any given situation. Even if those actions or decisions fail, we'll often repeat the same actions again and again thinking that the results will be different. Yes, this is insane. So what's missing? How do these patterns happen?

We all have the patterns in some area of our lives, maybe subconsciously… which brings me to the point of this article: the value of keeping a journal.

I kept a personal journal for ten years, 1998 to 2008. The journal made me an observer to my own life. Re-reading entries, I was blown away at how obvious my patterns were.

I first started journaling for a class project. My writing style was raw – I’d say things like “This happened and it sucked… screw everyone” or “So and so came by and I felt amazing.” Though rough, this was me learning how to express myself - literally the baby steps of my writing career. Over the next couple months, the writing began to flow easier and I started delving into truly personal emotions and experiences.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Second Impression (I'm back^_^)

On The Rocky Road To Nihon

It's been quite a while, hasn't it?

2 weeks since the last post. Oh well, I'm not going to make any excuses, let's just go straight to the point, which is "Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance".

I'm a subscriber to PS+, and I gotta admit, it's a lot more comfortable than going to a shop and buying a game. And It's also quite a deal, minding the fact that I wasn't so keen on the actual/last generation of consoles. Well, we do get a lot of good games every month, and by being a Vita owner too, I get +even more shit to play. But I digress. The new spin-off to the one of my favourite game series is a really, and I mean a really great game. It's made by Platinum Games, the creators of Bayonetta and many other great titles, and it does deliver a giant dose of adrenaline. If I was to explain that game in one sentence, it would be "Holy, fucking, shit.". This game is the definition of cheesy, comic book and internet awesome. We have everything here. Cyborg Ninja Warriors, Giant Robots, Swords, Epic Bosses and a security guard otaku. The graphics? Top Notch. I was amazed, that PS3 can pull something like that off. It was running mostly in 60 FPS, I experienced slowdowns in really intense moments (And I mean Intense to the power of intense) and I had a script freeze that forced me to do a Boss Battle once again, but these things didn't ruin the experience for me.
