The Nerd Journals

Filling up journals as proof of my meager existence.

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.

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.

Choosing a new journal for autumn

For me, the satisfaction of completing a journal and the excitement of beginning a new journal comes with the in-between stress and anxiety of choosing the next notebook that I will use.  My favorite season is just around the corner so currently, I am waffling between these five earth-toned and autumn feeling books.
