Project Description

I have been intermittently keeping a diary since 2002. I had hoped to find a way to use it to improve my life, but it became a place I mostly only wrote when I was experiencing highs and lows. I cannot stomach reading it, but after several years hiding from the world and from myself I am looking for new possibilities. I want someone to read my diary, interview me, and tell me who they think I am, and who I could become. The diary is now about 300,000 words long. I don't know how long this should take, but the kind of person who can do this is probably someone with lots of friends who come from a wide variety of different walks of life, having a deep and abiding interest in what makes other people tick, they must be compassionate, honest to the point of being blunt if necessary, and a fast, accurate reader. Evidence of your understanding of people and the human condition is necessary.

The average college student reads at 450wpm, so the reading part should take about 12 hours, but it will likely take longer because you'll need to take notes as you read and reflect. I'm estimating 25 hours to complete the reading time. You will need to ask me questions as you go and condense your views into a something I can take action on. I'll estimate 10 hours for that. So that makes for a total of 35 hours, give or take.
