A mixed journal

Hi there,

It's been a busy week, no time for writing blogs.. but I'm here today. After two weeks of journaling with a fountain pen, I made a recap so far... and can tell you that it's been really challenging for me. This is just not the right thing. To write poetry with a fountain pen is fine but journaling, just takes ages.... and I cannot slow down my thoughts so I can keep up with them. That's why I just decided to quit, not entirely but just to go back to my laptop. (I hope that makes sense)

Here's my journal
It's a lot easier this way. I cannot entirely give up to "type". So anyhow, don't want to bore you. I made up my mind and it's FINAL!!! and I am not ashamed to say I still journal!!! Life is too short not to write about meaningful moments good or bad, doesn't matter. You learn from mistakes!

Thanks for reading!
I'll post again some time. Make sure you are subscribed to the email feed to get my posts into your inbox!

old vs. new journal // thick vs. thin paper // rough vs. smooth

It's weekend, a long weekend here in Austria as we have the day off today.. and boredom increases too ... Almost a week ago I was excited to start a new journal. After more then three years of journaling on my laptop, I wanted a change and 2012 represents a major shift, a big change in all aspects so I wanted to start to journal this year with my fountain pen. I bought quite a heavy book without lines. I tend to write on usual notebooks that have smooth paper so I am used to these type of notebooks and my new journal is different... it feels different when I write on it and... I'm picky.. I just don't like it.. and if I don't change it I'll forever complain how I dislike it, so I'm not even so much behind to rewrite the first few entries (which will feel a bit silly) but I have to.. :)

I'm not sure how long this "changed choice" will outlast but I'll see it in the next few decades and regret it later (joke). What do you think is better, smooth paper or rough paper?

Feel free to share or discuss it with me!
