Volume 16 Complete!

I finished my 16th journal this week! I bought the notebook from Barnes & Noble when I visited the US in 2013. It's just a Picadilly with lined pages, I bought a couple as they were reduced in price. The cover was plain but I added the sticker, picked up at Dragon Con in the same trip.

Start: 10th May 2015
Finished: 28th July 2015

Ugh, I still miss After Forever. They were one of the first bands that I saw play live and I still get obsessive about Decipher. Floor is such a great singer. I'm glad she replaced that girl (not Tanja, the other one) in Nightwish (Yay for two Duth bands in your journal BTW, haha).

Part of me gets so annoyed at Nightwish sometimes! I didn't go on their last tour because I wasn't impressed with Anette from the tour before that. Then they announced Floor and tickets just sold out so fast.

Have you seen the live version of Ghost Love Score they put out? Epic.

I can imagine that being an enormous bummer. I've never seen Nightwish play live. I wish I had seen them when Tanja was still lead singer.

I have! It's from the Wacken Open Air 2013 recording which I listen to when I'm cleaning haha. The entire recording is awesome.

Do you know Floor's work with Ayreon? It's also awesome (Ayreon is awesome in general though. Link to a song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eshhko4KLW0 ).

Beautiful entries, as always!

I really like your idea of using the solid green washi as grass. I had a similar problem of what to do with mine. It's strange because green is my favorite color, but I'm never happy with my green tape and usually end up taking it off (and wasting it). Your grass and tree look adorable!

I'm with you on Mad Max being poorly named, though I guess 'Fury Road' was as close they could've gotten to calling it Furiosa. I love that movie! I've seen it 3 times now, and would see it again if the cinemas were still playing it. This entry could have literally been written by me, right down to the sign off (hello, fellow Becky!)

Ugh, allergies are the worst! My throat gets super dry, but my eyes and nose water like crazy. It's the worst when I'm at work and I'm trying to talk to a customer and think I'm crying or melting or something. It's annoying to know that it's your own body that's causing the symptoms. Do you get the watery eyes bit, or just the scratchy throat?

Definitely do the Space Needle! I live not too far from Toronto where there is a similar tower and it's gorgeous! I don't know if the Space Needle works the same way, but at the CN Tower if you pay for the restaurant, you get the rest of the experience without the fees (the glass floor, the terrace). Plus, you get the added benefit of sitting in a restaurant that has a gorgeous view of Puget Sound and the Rockies (and it spins).

Again, lovely entries!

Thank you!! Ugh, allergies are the worst. I get the itchy throat and constant sneezing.

I'm always at a bit of a loss with what to do with plain washi, patterned stuff seems to work better for decorating.

We're planning on doing the Space Needle at some point. I'm only there for 6 days and we have so much to pack in! Fortunately, my friend lives there so we can be as efficient as possible with where we need to be on each day.

What a gorgeous journal, I am so grateful for the little peek that you provided us. I love the sticker on the front and the page with the tree. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.
