AN: This is the final chapter... I'll let Sam explain.

Dear Journal,

I think this is the last note I'll write in a while. Maybe I'll come back and write more later... maybe not. It's just that, there's so many interesting things going on in life, but I don't know how to put them down on paper. How can I express my joy, my wonder, with this medium?

Life just is really good right now, and while I might have things to write, I just don't feel like writing them. I have no motivation, and there is almost no point. I've been so afraid of forgetting, I've forgotten that it isn't about remembering the past. It's about living the present. And if something is really that important, I will remember it regardless of whether or not I've written it down or not.

So here, in this journal, has been my life, for about the past 22 months. These have been the events I've bothered to write down. There's been more to this past 2 years than just what's in here, but that's for me to know.

You need to live your own life, and I need to live mine. I want to live in the moment from now on, not spend it trying to capture the moment. So maybe I'll change my mind and write more later, maybe I won't. Either way, I'll be okay.
