Year Long Project
A little while ago, I decided that I wanted to start a little personal project.
I’ve always been ridiculously obsessed with notebooks, journals, etc. since as long as I can remember. I blame the show Doug for it’s wonderful influences on me. So I’ve got this one really super wide, college ruled notebook by 5-star that I found in my room. Completely new and unused. I thought to myself, why not fill it?
So since then, it’s become a goal of mine to fill every single page of that notebook within a year of the first entry. I’m going to fill it with thoughts and stories that I’ll be comfortable with literally anyone reading.
Now some of you may be thinking, why is this any different than blogging? In fact, it’s kinda worse since it’s not even on the internet for others to read, right? Well if you are thinking that, I do have a sort of weird justification for it. Writing words, by hand, with a pen, on paper. That’s something that no keyboard, touch screen, website, or any other modern technology can change or completely replace. I like taking the time to hand write thoughts. I write differently by hand than I do typing because it takes so much longer.
That, and my other reason for doing it is because each entry so far has been an average 6 or more paragraphs, so I figure not too many people on Tumblr would want to read them xD
So yea, that’s my plan. A message to whoever is reading: Try this out. Maybe not for a year if you don’t want—try a week. Or a month. Make some goal that involves physically writing down what you’re thinking because it’s a helluva fun experience.
