The Nerd Journals

Filling up journals as proof of my meager existence.

Coffee & autumn journal flip through

Join me as I drink my morning coffee and talk about my most recently filled journal (my foxy journal) and a couple of other random things I have been wanting to show you.

I don’t think the freebie promotion is going on anymore but Fat Head is the site that I got my emoji stickers from. If you find a link for a free emoji sticker, please let me know and I will update this so other people can get the stickers.

Want to play Subeta with me? This is my referral link (we both get a bonus if you use it), if you don’t want to use it you can also sign up here and add me as a friend- my username is Stellar.

Well Inked Unboxing

Thank you to my new friends at WellInkedBox for letting me try out their subscription service.  It arrived quickly, it was packaged beautifully and I am so excited to try out the products that came inside. Please continue reading this blog post for more information about each of the products (from the cardstock included in the package) in the order that I talked about them in this video.

Limited Edition TWSBI Eco Unboxing

EDIT: a note from John of Lemur Ink slipped out of the packaging when I was tossing it in the trash just now- this is INDEED a fine tipped nib (instead of extra fine, but I think I may have messed this up in my video ANYWAY). So I’m really glad I got the fine- the XF would have been WAY too tiny for my preference. Thanks for reading my update. 🙂

Finishing my Foxy journals, starting my Eccolo

I recorded a quick video update today to let you know that I met my goal of completing my Foxy journal in time for my birthday.  Today I am starting my Positive Thoughts journal by Eccolo* (*this is normally where I would link you to where you can purchase the same journal, but for the love of all that is good I cannot find to order online*) while drinking all the coffee I can suck down.  I hope everyone reading this has an amazing day.

Drink coffee and chat about journals with me

I woke up early this morning and drank a pot of coffee before anyone else stirred (well, except for maybe my sleepy companion, Hera).  In this video, I talk a little bit about my current journal, which journal I may use next, and also a bit about the future of The Nerd Journals blog and YouTube channel.  Thanks for joining me for a chat, my friends.

Why do you date your journals in the year 10,000?

I first discovered the Human Era calendar in December 2016 from the YouTube channel Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell.  The idea of adding ten thousand years to our calendar to acknowledge how far humankind had come truly resonated with me.  To pay my respects to my ancestors who hunted and gathered their way to developed agriculture and buildings is important to me, so I respect them every day when I write in my journal and begin the year date with a one.  I recommend checking out the video below for more information.

Microbus Journal Part 4

Hello friends, I hope you are all doing well.  Today I am posting the final installment of pictures from my Microbus journal by Peter Pauper Press.  I hope you have enjoyed the pages that I have selected to share with you on my blog.  Before my birthday next week, I’m going to be completing my current journal and I look forward to sharing some pictures with you from this book, as well.  In the meantime, I have been trying to figure out the perfect journal for the next chapter in my life.

Microbus Journal Part 1

I’ve been putting off posting photos of my Peter Pauper Press Microbus journal because I wanted to post all of the pictures at once.  I guess I underestimated how busy life can be and how long it actually takes to edit photos (especially if you’re not certain what you’re doing, like me).  Instead of putting it off any longer I decided to go ahead and release pictures in batches.  Without further ado, here are ten pictures from my recently completed Microbus journal.
