I remember reading an article (in some women’s magazine, I think?) about a person who bought a new pair of white Keds every time they felt they needed a fresh start. I think I do the same thing with Moleskine journals.
I’ve been using Moleskines for nearly five years. I’ve used them as agendas, daily planners, travel planners, travel journals, sketchbooks, scrapbooks, pensieves, quote journals, reading journals, video planners, to-do lists, school notebooks, work notebooks… you name it.
But not once have I filled a Moleskine cover to cover.
There isn’t necessarily a problem in that. It’s remarkable how freeing and motivating it can be to start fresh with a new notebook. Yet I can’t help but feel some regret looking at all these half-filled journals. In each of these is a forgotten idea, an abandoned project, moments of losing motivation or losing myself.
I really don’t like New Year’s resolutions, but I’ll admit that I started a new Moleskine today and I’m quietly setting a goal to fill the whole book.
Do you do something when you need a fresh start?
Bad Feeling #46:
that awful in-between; at the end of a holiday before real life begins, when someThing is over but the next Thing hasn’t yet begun, when the past is a comfort and the future is unknown. being unsure. wasting time not being as happy as you could or should or would be, and how much worse the Bad Feeling gets when you realise how little time you really have.
Do you ever email something to yourself, then see the (1) new email thing pop up and think ‘Ooh an email!’ then think ‘oh yeah that was me’ and then feel a little sad and a lot stupid?

I’ve changed my tumblr name from jesstobesure to shakes1327. It made no sense to be using shakes1327 everywhere on the internet except here.
