Daylogs are damn therapeutic
Say what you will about them. I'm not pretending that daylogs are the best things on e2. I somewhat fit the profile of I don't Daylog but I'm Daylogging, most of what I daylog is angsy bull or stupid happy stuff. I don't like diaries. I don't know why. I think they're against my religion, to tell you the truth. Samudaya and all that, though I'm not sure that's a good reason.
It feels good to get it out. A diary puts something on paper, but there's something about sharing that makes you feel better; I suppose that's why people talk to psychiatrists instead of fairly interesting walls. The only real difference is that the wall won't say "Mmm hmm" while it's doing its crossword, and the wall probably wouldn't overmedicate. Daylogs are a happy medium, like a wall that will arbitrarily assign you some arbitrary numeric value that you can pretend means something.
I am stressed. It is 3 in the morning. I need to get out some frustration in a somewhat meaningful way that no one will really take too seriously so I can go way overboard on what I'm feeling. Ahh... I'll write a daylog.
