Bigger Manga Volumes

For me, my monthly habit of purchasing manga volumes has practically stopped. Nowadays, I go to Barnes & Noble to just look for interesting series.

It has been one month after I made the commitment to write in my journals more frequently. Luckily, I remembered to add the date to each entry. Turns out I wrote every 1-3 days, which is not bad considering I expected an entry once a week. Overall, I managed to write 16 days out of the past 31. Wow! Looking back on what I recorded and what I experienced, I can confidently say that all those articles and blog posts about the benefits of daily writing were right.
