Or that's what I'm telling myself anyway. In truth, it probably is a diary but if I call it a diary then it's all doomed and I'll never write anything in it because for some reason that would make it more serious. So instead I shall call it my summer journal.
I've been writing entries, scrap-booking and collaging pages in this particular book since the end of April and decided to make it a "summer journal" seeing as I seem to be particularly busy this year. Perhaps I'm soppy and nostalgic or maybe just rather forgetful but I love looking back through my old journals. There's something so tangible about reading your own narrations of things which you once perceived to be of the utmost importance. It's highly likely that you'll forget about various things that you never thought you could forget about and, if you don't leave some trace of that memory, then it could be lost. I'd very much encourage anyone to take up journalling. Don't set yourself any restrictions or targets, use it when you want to and use it however you want to. Mine is part diary, part scrap-book, part art experimentation and part to-do list book. Put everything and anything in!
Now that it is August, it's pretty strange to look back at the diary entries and stress fuelled collages that I made in May when my GCSE exams were beginning. I can't believe how stressed out about the mocks I was though, HA they were nothing in comparison to the real deal! Although, I think there's going to be few more apprehensive scrawlings in my journal as results day approaches *gulp*.
Also, in other news, HAHAHA what a flump my attempt at a weekly summary post series has been. Where is #2 of The Weekly Nutshell I hear you say? Well, the thing is I kinda forgot and then I hadn't posted anything after the first one and so errr I'm not keen on having them right next to each other and erm yeah... Basically I'm a disaster at organising things. Deary me I need to get my blogging more organised sooner rather than later! Goodness it puts me to shame. Well perhaps there'll be one next week? Paha lets just wait and see.
Bye for now lovely peoples,
