I’m a firm believer in setting realistic expectations, so I just want to start this by making sure no one expects frequent entries. Also, while we’re at it, you should not expect them to be particularly thoughtful, insightful, lucid, logical, or even interesting.

I’ve been meaning to keep a journal for a long time, have even started one several times, and I can never seem to stick to it. But maybe it’s like the flip side of smoking (on average, it takes 6 tries to quit) and maybe the sixth time is the charm.
