Day Five — Journaling

I should have written about day five on Thursday, but I wanted to try the second half of the exercise before I commented on it. It called for attempting to note the differences in posture and affectation that accompanied different emotional states, in particular negative ones like depression or apathy and positive ones like focus and power and passion, and then to talk with someone about two things, one that you normally feel passionately about and one that you normally feel apathetic about, but to switch the expressed emotion and note the effects. With my experience in theater, I knew what to expect, but I wanted to actually go and do it anyway. The results were notable, because I even started to lose interest in the subject when I was actively trying to be apathetic. I think I know where this is going, but I won't know until later.
