Strange thoughts...

Alright, I've been thinking a lot today. I just got done reading some of my old journal entries on here and I am really suprised at all of the stuff I recorded and it made me ask, the all annoying question, "Why?" Why did I write about it? Thought clarification? To facilitate memory? Some of the things are so painful and are things I'd rather not remember, so why did I record it? Maybe it helps me to appreciate things better. Maybe it's just therapeutic at the time. Maybe it's to help me see how much I've grown, and changed, and adapted. I don't think I had any of these thoughts in mind when I wrote it all... but it's hard to remember exact thoughts and motives from more than 2 years ago. Still strange though...

This sprung on a whole chain of thinking. What would other people think of me if they read them now? Because I feel like I should edit the youth out of them because some are so immature and I'm almost embarassed. Yet, I feel they should be preserved to give the most accurate picture. Surely, people wouldn't judge me by something from 2 years ago, would they? This is a disgustingly educational experience.

Speaking of educational experiences, does anyone remember cursive? In like, 3rd grade our teachers told us that we would need to know how to write in cursive and they assured us that after we learned how, we would never print again. All papers were to be written in cursive, all legal documents were cursive... and all I can say now is WTF? I don't think I've ever written anything in cursive. Maybe it's just the time frame in which we were growing up when computers replaced everything... but still. Who writes in cursive? Seriously... I feel cheated. It's kind of a lost art; penmanship counts for nothing these days and I admit it, my own is terrible. I wonder if they even teach kids cursive anymore or if they just show them how to sign their names.
