Some of us are journalers! Even during the toughest times in our lives, we journal on, whether it's just to cope or to prove to ourselves that we are actually in fact experiencing what is happening right now. This series came directly from Laneia's brain, much in the way Athena was born from Zeus's head, and so while we hope to have further contributions to this series from Autostraddle team members down the line, it is Laneia who's starting us off! The concept? We are presenting, without commentary, excerpts from our journals during one of the worst years we've experienced. (It can be any year! Just our personal worst!)
Thank you for bearing witness to some of our most vulnerable moments. You might wonder, dear reader, ...
