Does anyone write in a journal anymore?

It's hard to believe that something that used to be so common is now so foreign: writing. With a pen, thoughts into words, flowing, on paper.

The last time I wrote on paper was when I was in Spain, living in a dorm with only one working computer on the other side of the building. I found myself writing down thoughts a couple of times on nights that I just couldn't sleep yet. Or when I had no one to talk to about intimate things that I just couldn't share with people I had just met.

That was two years ago. And before that? I can't remember.

I miss it now, though. Because there are some things too private to write on a blog. And there are some things too real to type on a machine.
