But I'm really annoyed right now.
Last night, at 9:30, I wrote a whole post about blogging in general, but then parental restrictions kicked in and my WiFi cut, so I planned to post what I wrote last night today. But no. Nothing saved. NOTHING. So now I have to make up for yesterday's post somehow. Maybe I'll rewrite it. Or I'll do something different. *sighs*
Anyways, this last journal entry should be something to celebrate I have (well, I will have written by the end of today, hahaha...) twenty-eight journals entries; most of which were posts to this blog, but there were also a few (and will be a few more) that I wrote in a different place. Don't worry though. You peeps didn't miss out on anything, because they were mostly rants.
So what have I learned in writing (to be) twenty-eight journal entries?
Well, I've found that original ideas are difficult to think up. At some points, I wanted to go to some random generator online to come up with an idea with. Sometimes, I wanted to steal off of one of my friend's blog. I didn't do either of these though. I just kind of started typing away until I thought of something interesting to write about.
I also found a sort of stressful sort of enjoyment in doing this. Stressful because this is for a grade, but enjoyment because I enjoy blogging and writing. I was kind of irked because my teacher said that poetry did not count for a journal entry, but I mean, my poetry is in prose, so I hope that counts. I'm glad that I somewhat revived this blog.
I've learned that writing does not simply improve overnight. Well, I already knew that. It's more of how I understood through this whole journal entry thing that writing takes a long time to develop. During these four weeks, I not only wrote new posts, but I also looked back on some of my old posts. Can I just say... Wow, I was so cringe-worthy all those years ago... I noticed frequent spelling errors, horrendous grammatical mistakes, and my diction was just... Ew. Of course, my diction is still "ew," but I'd like to think that has improved. Because obviously, I'm so much more sophisticated now... Pfffft...
Some of you peeps may be wondering, "What will you do from here? Will you keep posting?"
And the answer is...
Yes! But I won't be posting every single day. I'll post once a week, probably on a weekend. The only exception would be on the first week of the month, where I'll do a SOTM and QOTM.
Here's to a new journey, guys! Hope you peeps enjoyed this experience as much as I did!
