I’ve been thinking about starting a journal… especially since I’m about to make a huge transition. I’d like to be able to read what I’m going through five, ten, and twenty-five years from now.
But, I’m terrible at keeping journals. I mean, between College Prep, my Tumblr, my Twitter, and Prep Talk… I basically have a journal. Even some of my emails and gchat conversations could be considered some serious journal entries.
I would like a little bit more of a personal reflection. You know what I mean? There are thoughts and fears and other emotions that I want to be able to capture, remember, and record.
Does anyone else journal? Do you have any tips, tricks, or advice?
Also, truth be told, I also want to journal because I love the way journals look. I would be hesitant to decide to do a digital journal because it might feel too much like blogging for me. I would need to do something in a hard copy. I’m under the impression that actually writing my thoughts versus typing them.
I think I could manage this “One Line a Day” journal could work for me since the commitment level is lower. But I think I would run into the problem of not capturing my real emotions.
I love fabric covered journals, they’re gorgeous and pretty and everything a journal should be. The floral print on this one is super great.
This Orla Kiely journal is a little bit more fun. The hardcover is a good option for me since it would travel better and hold up when thrown in a bag.
Who doesn’t love the quirky Archie Grand notebooks? They crack me up. Totally worth collecting, let alone writing in!
You can’t go wrong with a classic Moleskin!
