A Name for Yourself- ‘Journistic’ An Answer from the Past

Some writers’ names have becomes adjectives: Kafkaesque, marxist, Orwellian, sadistic. If your name (or nickname, or blog name) were to become an adjective, what would it mean?

This name has just flashed into my mind, ‘journistic’, it expresses a curiosity and willingness to find an answer for the question. Life is a journey, we were born to live it and now ask yourself where you are in the journey, are you at the end? The middle half? Say that life expectation is around 80 years old, that means I have lived one fourth of my journey.

I could still remember the day I rode my first two wheels bike, graduation from junior high school, and when I was still going to the ladies room with my mom. Time flies so fast that I could barely catch up with it, a boy was pushed to grow into a man, with all the responsibility he have to take.

Back into today’s topic, the term ‘journistic’ I mean would suit into a phrase like, ‘I have a journistic lifestyle’ which means I have a habit to search for meanings in life, or to travel and look for interesting events along the way.

How would you use this ‘journistic’ adjective?
