I’m excited. I’m getting back into keeping a regular journal. I think I may actually keep it up, too.
I’ve decided for my journal this year, I am going to write down at least 1 thing I am thankful for that day, as well as something I learned that day. It is important to me to make sure I’m always learning. I’ve also started using the prompts from the One Minute Writer when I journal. It helps me to practice my writing skills, and to remember memories I wouldn’t otherwise include in my journal. This is definetly the most fun I’ve ever had keeping a journal!
Here is (part of) my journal entry for today:
January 15, 2009
Today I am thankful for “Honey-do” lists. Steve told me that he likes it when I leave him a list of things to do while I’m at work. And if I leave him a list, he does everything on it. It is fantastic! Today he cleaned up his clothes off the floor, washed our sheets… and I actually can’t remember what else, but he loves to be helpful and I love him for it.
Today I learned… the word adjuvant. Well, maybe. We’ll see if it sticks. It is a pharmaceutical term which means taking one agent to change the way another agent works. I’m also learning that my supervisor is lazier than I thought!
Today’s one-minute writing prompt is “If you could be the best in the world at something, what would it be?”
I think I would be the world’s best cookie-maker. Fancy frosted sugar cookies, jelly-filled thumbprint cookies, oatmeal cookies with the perfect ratio of cranberries to white chocolate chips to pecans. I would make cookes that made tears dry and tummies rumble, that made little eyes grow big and dark eyes sparkle.
