Growing Up Introvert

Image Credit Introversion is "the state of or tendency toward being wholly or predominantly concerned with and interested in one's own mental life".  Some popular writers have characterized introverts as people whose energy tends to expand through reflection and dwindle during interaction.

If I Could Tell The World Just One Thing, It Would Be…

All my life I have meticulously kept detailed writing notebooks chronicling my entire life experiences since childhood.  All the trials and tribulations, triumphs and defeats, rumors and truths; pretty much everything that floats into my mind has been recorded in my notebooks. Since the dawn of the Internet, the idea of sharing my story in gory detail (i.e. copying the contents of my private journals to an anonymous blog) has been something I have taken into serious consideration lately.  I have seriously considered publicly announcing the details of my childhood sexual abuse, including...

Situation-Based Note Taking

The following is an overview of my personal note taking methods, based upon the situation, and more specifically, how long I will need the notes to last.  This system has evolved over the course of many years, and is presented here out of a combination of simplicity, scalability, and necessity. This list of methods explains the medium on which the notes themselves are recorded.  It all depends on exactly how long I need or expect the notes to be available, specifically, a very short time, such as Kim Kardashian's marriage to Kris Humphries, or a long time, such as the duration of the rest...
