I have been keeping a journal since 2006, which, I believe, was my last year in Wales. I really love writing and drawing in them because they are something that I do just for myself and I know nobody else will ever read them. Sometimes I really look forward to the end of the day so I can sit in a half darkened room and listen to music while I think, draw and write.
Every year I use the journal’s first page to write my new year’s resolutions. I think about what I want to write carefully and I take my resolutions quite seriously, referring to them throughout the whole year. I already have my new journal and while I was thinking about what I want to achieve during 2013, I was looking at the things I wrote exactly one year ago today. Some things I managed to do, some things I didn’t, but overall, I’m happy with how the year turned out.
