I think the idea that this is in anyway encrypted is totally off base. If the notes are for himself it wouldn't make much sense to have a key and have to take your own message back to your room and use the key to decode your own words. Encryption doesn't make much sense without a correspondent. Much more likely is some kind of personal shorthand. The repeated SE and wld and ncbe could be simple obfuscations that he has attempted to randomly pepper through his text. Most people can't come close to an actual random dispersion of text or numbers in a sequence, our brains just aren't made that way.

The grouping of the text might be something to look at. Ignoring the text altogether does the grouping of the parenthetical statements look like anything? I keep coming back to programming language of one kind or another, but I can't think of anything that would generate strings like that.
