Check out all these wonderfully collaged journals from Ugly is the New Cute:
The owner stumbled across these notebooks after she had to empty out a filing cabinet in order to move it:
However what called to me more were the 10+ notebooks & journals from sophomore year in high school through college. I skimmed college years, laughing at how much I liked to use the big words and concepts from Freshman philosophy courses and such. It was fun to read forgotten funny quotes from the ongoing “quote book” of my life. Then I got back into the proper journals of mine from High School. It’s weird, looking at the dates and thinking, hmmm, what was going on in the life of Mir a decade ago? Apparently drama was what was going on. A lot of it. Drama written with the greatest weight and importance attached to it. Some scenes still hold a firm place in my memory, others I had completely forgotten about until this day.
I know the feeling– there’s nothing like an old journal to make you realize that your memory isn’t as good as you thought!
