Day 21.

Today I filled two pages of my journal full with doodles of inanimate objects that I had put smiley faces on.
It may seem like a childish, silly thing to do but it was actually really fun and cathartic for me! It allowed me to concentrate on something that wasn't school work, and the smiles made me happy, too!
I find a certain satisfaction in making things cute, and I think that's another key to my journaling. I'm always very neat in precise in my writing (and creative in my drawing) and I think it helps me access the sides of myself that I don't use in school all the time.
It's like I'm pushing myself, but in a direction that I enjoy being pushed.
