I'm lost...

So I'm currently using a small journal for my text journal. But some times I feel very  limited, I can't draw in it, because it's so tiny. I recently bought a huge graph lined journal. I'm debating on finishing the first journal. I am so OCD that I have a million blank unused journals and have never finished on. So, what do you think I should do. Finish the one I'm at now, or go for both.

I want to draw so The huge graph on is great, plus sometimes I have a million thoughts racing in my head that the small one is just to small. I'm not sure what to do. The small one is so pretty its a foil covered one from Target. and the big one is this one...

What do you think I should do. I'm leaning between two options.

Finish my foil covered one first. Then go on to the next.

and

or using both, one for drawing and longer entries, and the small one for blah days./

But as I'm OCD and like things in order, I'm leaning toward the first just to keep my thoughts in order... hmm :/

The thickness is why I think I want to finish my tiny one first. But as you said, the bigger one, for more in depth, probably when I have days off, and nothing to but journal.

The bigger one we have is too big to carry around almost huh:? Do you carry your's around?

No, I don't carry mine around. When it comes to personal journals, I think it's best to keep them at home where they're safe. I always keep a small notebook in my purse incase I want to remember something, but then I write about it later when I get home.

So I decided to leave the other journal. I find myself being more creative and it's a lot easier for me to cut each page in half for smaller entries, instead of feeling like I have to use a full page for one entry. I think I my carry around the small one for notes about my day, phone numbers, etc. just so it wont go to waste.

Once I've written in it for a week I'll post some pictures.

I just realized this journal really does have 500 pages. :S I still like it though.

Looking forward to the pictures. :0)

How far into yours again are you?

600, that's a lot, almost 2 years worth minimum. How nice it's going to be to have 3-5 years all in one book? It's the only reason I WANT to use it, to kind of have a "Story of my Life" deal..

I'm on page 192. I've been using it every day since December 1st. Some days I only write a page, but others I try to write 2-4 if I can, sometimes more.
