Journals

I filled my journal!
I started my journal on March 13. And I just finished it. I wrote all over all 76 pages of the 11x9 inch journal. Remember it, it was pretty. The Wanderlust Journal.


My next one is pretty too. It's also from Anthro, called "golden prose journal". What a lovely name. I love the unlined handmade paper. It reacts just right to ink. And it feels soft, like conditioned hair (unhealthy obsession?). This one is 8.5x6 inches and only has 76 pages. I'm excited about it. It's smaller, which means I will probably end up writing more frequently but with less depth. With my big journal it turned into half an hour a couple times a week. I'm ready to go back to ten minutes nearly every day.




I'm hoping to finish it before I go to college in August.
I like starting a new journal with starting a new chapter. Sometimes, when I need things to change, I get a new journal. It's very therapeutic.
Someday, I would like to be the girl who carries her journal around with her everywhere. But I'm not ready to do that quite yet, because it's too scary. If it got out of my possession, I would have a meltdown bigger than 2008.

  1. I just saw this at the store today and it is super lovely. I have started carrying two journals. I small one with me all the time and then a larger one for when I feel like pouring my heart out.

    And I totally do the same things. New Chapter in life new journal. I figure it will make it easier to find things later on. Like.... oh that time i started college... it was this journal!

    And I think your awesome and I am stoked for you!
