Filling up journals as proof of my meager existence.

Flip Through of my Book Journal, February 2108

I got this journal from Ex Libris Anonymous– it was made from a book called Little Navajo Bluebird by Ann Nolan Clark.  Join me as I flip through my month of February including lots of Valentine’s nonsense, 90s inspired music and collages, and lots of blackout poetry.  I like my Book Journal and I would be open to using one again in the future.  I encourage any of you readers to check out Ex Libris Anonymous for your next notebook.  Warning: Book Journals are not Sharpie or Copic marker friendly.

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.
