2023 Week 40, 41, & 42 - Weekly Notes
Missed last two weeks, as I’m going through the LYT workshop. I decided to cease publishing anything until I complete it.
Now that it’s the last week, I’m turning my attention back from my PKM to this website again. My goal is to publish once a week. 🤞🏼

When I kept up my journaling experiences for a decade, some days, I’d let it all out on paper. Take my thoughts and feelings and let them bleed on paper. Sometimes I’d come up with barely anything. Other times, I’d pour my heart on the page.
