Nearly finished with my current journal. Now I need a trip to the store to find a new one, or I’ll have to keep my next one (at least for a while) inside of a plain lined notebook. Would be fine except I love to write in pen rather than pencil, and the notebook pages are too thin and let the ink bleed through, preventing me from writing on the backside of the page (which annoys me)
I guess I will have to se if I can maneuver a trip into town soon. ;D
Have been putting of writing for the last few days… so much is going on I don’t really know how to put it into writing, or I didn’t. It’s quieter today so I’m going to get to working out whats going on with me this last week. Been needing this release here.
wrote in my journal today, one page. Thought it was only two days since I last wrote in it, but it had actually been since tuesday! Ooops. But I got some good writing in, as well as ranted about how I’ve been feeling (pms sucks) and now I feel a whole ton better. Didn’t realize how much I was missing it until I wrote in it today.
So for English 11, as the largest part of our semester grade, we have to turn in a portfolio of our best work. Literary analysis, author biography, short story, sentence diagrams, words we now know… the works. We also have to do 16 journal responses. I’ve done 4 so far, yesterday, and will be doing another few more after I write this.
Besides that, I have been writing in my journal daily again, and I’m getting back into the hang of it. I almost feel like I can wrap up this goal and call it finished, but I think I will leave it on until I have a new journal to replace my current one – and replace this goal with my goal of “fill a journal”
Wrote in my journal just now. So short on time right now; what with homework and make-up work and christmas looming on the horizon. And today, I have chores and dinner to do before I even get started on my homework. Somewhere between all this chaos I have to find time to sleep! And clean my room before christmas eve, and I have no idea yet when that will be happening.
Busy now, so leaving with this update. So glad I remembered to write.
Also, 14 1/2 pages left in my old journal. Hopefully this lasts until the new year!
A Journal Jar is a project I’ve been wanting to get to doing for a while now. So I looked up a bunch of prompts and invented some of my own, and I started writing up and cutting out slips of prompts to go in a journal jar. I also found a perfect jar to put them in… a glass honey jar, so while I wait for the honey to be used up so I can use it, I’m putting my slips in a ceramic mug on my desk instead.
Haven’t written in my journal yet today, but I will as soon as I finish this entry here. Have been looking forward to it all day.
Didn’t get to writing in my journal yesterday, but just finished todays’ entry. Almost out of space in it! Once this journal is filled, it will have been the first one I will have ever filled completely. Granted, it’s taken forever and I’ve restarted multiple times, with huge gaps inbetween, but it is getting done.
I wrote in it, “I missed a day of journalling. I don’t think I’m going to stress about that too much” and I’m not. I won’t beat myself up for the missed day. But, I’m not going to call this finished yet. Not until I feel like I don’t need an incentive to keep writing, when I can, will I call this goal achieved. But I have a feeling that will be soon. Journal-writing gives me such an amazing feeling after.
two days in a row of journal writing. I haven’t actually written in this journal since the day before school started… its been a few months. I know during the summer whenever I had a rough patch I wrote about it and calmed myself down… and two weeks ago there was an incident that had me upset, and I automatically wrote like, 3 pages trying to sort myself out…. letting myself know what was going on in my head, and deciding how I felt about it. It’s really calming and it does help me.
I love the feeling of writing pen on paper, the boldness of the black ink, the way it feels so much more intimate than writing something in a word document or in just a regular notebook. I’m almost out of room in the journal I’m using currently. So I’ll mention the idea to somebody, see if I can get one for christmas, otherwise I’m out to buy one soon after. This is a habit that I relied on for awhile and I think I just really need the space to reflect and plan. My way of telling someone my problems without actually burdening someone.
I am just super excited to get a new journal I love to write in and fill it in to the finish… the one I am writing in currently is almost finished, but I’ve started it 3 different times. Its over a year old… and I only consistently used it during last summer anyway, before then it was less of a journal and more just notes on stuff I should do. So I want to finish a journal start to finish.
Once I fill this journal and buy a new one, I’ll retire this entry and start a new one – fill a journal Sounds like a plan to me
(haha rambling abound. I do this alot, hence why 3 months or less and I pretty much filled a journal, I average about 3-4 pages an entry, sometimes more. Todays was hardly 2 pages, I was suprised to run out of things to say)
