This is what my school notes look like *___*

Hi DA peeeeople! I have a project I want to share with you guys. I will probably post this in my journal again later~ It is something I will be working on for the next 10 weeks and I’m inviting you all to be a part of it :D

The origin of this project began with the word “cancer,” a disease that spreads uncontrollably. Likewise, a thought/idea can act like a “cancer” by spreading throughout our minds whether we like it or not. Have you ever laid in bed late at night thinking about something you regretted? Have you ever wanted to forget something but caught yourself thinking about it? These thoughts are okay!!! Negativity is inevitable but it’s just a part of life that we can learn from and overcome.

I’m conducting a survey to collect people’s unwanted thoughts. All the answers (your answers!) will be compiled into a book I am designing (binded but not published!) The question is:

“What is a negative thought that you can't stop thinking about?(explain why and include your age) 
Answer here. You can submit as anon.

The answers can be about anything from regrets to embarrassing moments to middle school years to songs to disturbing images. It can be funny, it can be personal, whatever! The answers can be as long as you wish; a sentence or a page long (don’t forget to submit your age!) And you can submit more than one answer. EVERYONE OF ALL AGES are welcome to answer the question. Ask your little bro, ask your mom, ask your gramma. The purpose of this social experiment is to show that everyone, no matter the age, is affected by past memories.

You can submit the responses to my ask box on tumblr openly or anonymously! If you’re interested in the details of this project or have any other questions, feel free to let me know.

DONT FORGET YOUR AGE, EVERYONE FORGETS THATTT.

I just sent 2, but the space wasn't enough so it feels like it's missing something (at least for me, like little details of the story).
Just from doing this I got your point, the things I sent dont haunt me anymore but just by remembering what I did I can say those things made me a different person, that I wont make those mistakes again, that making those mitakes are kind of worth it.
Great activity!

Ahh it would be interesting to have it published. Just to see how many people can relate/had similar situations.
This looks fun. Feels good to let something out like this. :>

Oh, my mind is PLAGUED with cancerous thoughts that I wish to set aside for a long time. I feel like submitting but I don't know what I want to FORGET. I think it's because I'm reading too much into the word 'forget' XD. If I forget something then that means I didn't learn anything from it. Like it never happened.

This is a pretty good exercise for me mentally, as I'm constantly plagued by so many negative thoughts that I cannot seem to let go and it's severely holding me back.

Don't look too much into the word "forget". Ot's more like.. what's something you think about often that has a negative effect?

Yeah, I am reading too much into it.
In that case, almost everything. :F
