First Half of the Year

Well, I've decided to try a post from my phone with several pics. We'll see how it goes.

I have had the same journal from January through July 1st. I left the last two pages empty because it was good timing for my next journal.

So, here are some pics from my first half of the year

Inside front cover. Pic of me and Loretta from when she came out for our first visit.

I seldom draw in my journals, but sometimes it hits me. Extreme drama with (now former) friends.

A majorly fun event for me. Sorry it is sideways.

An amusing altered postcard and me using a Spongebob tablet page. I tried to match what I wrote to Spongebob's facial expression.

I put these pics in my journals on occasion in the hopes they will catch the next reader off-guard, and make them laugh. :)

My entry about that big equality movement on FB.

Sometimes I write in colored ink.

A card from a student.

Me trying to diagram a silly "What if he likes me?" moment.

Sometimes I use this format when I don't know what to write. It gives me direction.

A card from a swap.

Me cutting a toxic person from my life, and the timely quote that popped up on FB the same day.

The dance card from the Victorian dance I attended.

My first 8th grade class. I wrote 18 pages detailing a bit about every 8th grader I taught.

Cute text between me and Rocker Kevin.

A windfall!

The final stats for the fire that was pretty close to home.

A cool postcard.

A good letter from someone about the book "Orphan Master's Son".

I saw Joss Whedon's version of Much Ado and decided to put some quotes in my journal.

In a desperate attempt to fill this journal that I felt was taking eternity to fill, I wrote 4 pages worth of quotes about Patience.

Highlight if my summer thus far.

And the lowest part of my summer (so far).

So, there you have it. I don't really like the journal I've just started, so hopefully I'll fill it quickly.

Okay, first off, that's a really neat journal. Where did you get it?

I like how you structure your journal. I may borrow a few of your ideas for my own. *g*

I got my bigger journals from Walmart, initially. They are big "Plan-A-Head" journals. But they are $10 bucks at Walmart. Walgreens has the same ones for $7. So, when I buy them (which I haven't for awhile since I have 5 or 6 ready to be filled) I'd go to Walgreens.

I have LOTS of those journals so that my journals all have the same dimensions, but look different.

Steal away! A lot of my journaling has been "stolen" from here and other journaling sites. :)

I've got a variety of shapes and sizes for journals, because I usually go with whatever grabs my eye. Plus, the shape/size of the journal also is kind of indicative of my state of mind when I started it.

And yay! I love finding new ideas to use for both my paper and electronic journaling.

I like that I can read the pages and remember us talking about these events in real time... It's interesting reading your personal thoughts on the same. :) plus I like all the extras thrown in as usual. ;)

Is the next journal one that you bought while I was there? It kinda looks like it. :)

You bought one of those journals as well. :) It was up at the bookstore in Denver.

I thought so... But I didn't want to assume and be wrong ;) I'm using one I got while out there too currently.

I love all the color in your journal! And how you vary the size of your writing. And all the quotes! (I love collecting quotes in my journals - isn't it funny how sometimes the most timely quote appears out of nowhere?) Very fun!

Well, if it makes you feel better, here is how the race goes:

See zombies? SPRINT! (not as frequent as you think depending on the race)

See obstacle? Do it. (lots of crawling, usually though glorious mud)

Rest of the time? Walking/chatting with those around you. *laugh*

At least that's how it was the past couple years for me. It is incredibly fun. There are some people who take it more seriously, but for the most part, it is people enjoying themselves and the zombie genre. :)
