I have to say Tommy I was genuinely inspired by this writing. I started writing my third year at University when the buildup had become too much for me and it quickly became my therapy. You are a good writer and I will most likely be going back and reading some of your older entries. I've been an on and off frequenter here for a while--it's just a place I always end up coming back to.
This inspired me to write and I don't know if you want to call it a memoir or what but I just dumped out 1400 words starting from the beginning of my life. It's been a long time since I have written in my journal. For more than a year now the entries have all been similar--I can't seem to get out of this funk. Maybe trying a new avenue on the writing will change my perspective a little.
Thanks for writing here, I look forward to reading more of your posts.
