I am 31 and French, I am currently undertaking a PhD at the University of Cape Town on marine biology and climate changes. I have started writing as a teenager my moods, my pains and doubts in short stories and poems. I have never stopped but nowadays writing is as much part of my work as laboratory work. Writing fan fics or original stories is for me therapeutic, it's a good and safe way to evade reality. This journal would be as much a way to record my stories as a place to concentrate my thoughts. It would be great if others would react to some of them and we could start a discussion.
