I have a list of things to tell you. Random stuff, nothing heavy. Okay, maybe some are heavy. You are a smart boy. I may sound grave, but you know, these days (meaning: 2018), there's a conscious effort to chill. Reading past journals (from 15 years ago!), I discover that this has been my goal for so long. I'm tempted to say "to no avail" because I tend to bring myself down, but I think I've improved a bit over the years. Don't let this happen to you. Be decisive and unafraid. The secret is to know yourself.
