Something, though I can’t put my finger precisely on it, has come over my being within just a few days. My hours, as of late, have been one’s dedicated to my studies and thoughts regarding morality, and more particularly, the life I have been striving to maintain for quite some time now. Hardly any of my time is wasted. I have set my standards high and have given myself many goals to accomplish within the last 72 hours. I have specifically worked diligently to purify my mind of negative thoughts while filling my soaking brain of all that is good: knowledge and wisdom. My days here in London are fulfilling. I have made strides as a young man and as a bright scholar.
I am feeling strong mentally and enlightened. I am sensing a personal transformation happening within me. I can feel the momentum growing; it’s like a snowball rolling down a mountain in a snowstorm. I plan on continuing my newfound path of independence and morality. I am slowly perfecting my character. Rome was not built overnight.
