It took me all night, but I finally finished transcribing the entries from the first (of three) notebook of my paper journal. The entries span from August 26, 1989 through August 20, 1991. It was interesting, albeit embarrassing, going through all of those old entries. I hadn’t read through the journal in a long time. It’s interesting to observe which parts of me changed and which parts are basically the same. And it was kind of fun reliving my first, awkward romantic and sexual experiences. I don’t think 12-14 year old Mitch imagined that 33 year old Mitch would be single, vegan, and have 7 cats. Well, maybe the cat part — even back then I read Cats magazine… Like every teenage boy… Right? Right?
