Introduction post.

Hi, everyone! My name is Becky. I'm 24 and live in a little place called Canada. I'm a psychology student, part-time hostess at a Chinese buffet and occasionally I work as a temp assistant in a law firm. I've been a long time lurker of the community, but was too shy up until now to share. I write pretty much every day, but picked out the pages that I thought looked the nicest from current journal to share.

The inside cover of my current journal. It's actually a shiny gold foil-type paper, but with the bad lighting it looks brown :/ I have a habit of pasting in pictures I like from Tumblr or Pinterest, and this one reminded me of the Greek goddess Artemis (it may be too faint to see, but she's holding arrows). I love Greek mythology, so this felt like a perfect fit. The 'Be Happy' sticker came from a MAMBI set I picked up at Michael's which was ridiculously expensive. I originally wasn't going to stick it there but I had a little accident with some ink. Oops.

The first page. I always start my journals off with a calendar for the month...even if I'm starting said journal in the very middle of the month. To the right we have some very boring discussion about course selection for this upcoming school year (university makes me legit want to tear my hair out), and then onto a spoiler-free review of Jurassic World.

We had a huge storm that flooded a lot of basements in my city, including mine. The first day after the rain, things were fine (we spent all day using shopvacs and dehumidifiers to dry things out), but the second day we started to notice a funky smell. My dad said there was a chance that some of the water was actually sewage water....(Thankfully, it turned out to just be regular ol' ground water). Then I talk about my visit to the gym and calling my boyfriend for a ride home because I was too chicken to ride the bus at night.

Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canucks! My friend at work had a really awful go of things last night, so I've decided that I'm going to bring him a treat during my next shift as a consolation for having to deal with mean customers, a single delivery driver, our wayward kitchen staff, a flooded men's bathroom and a slew of burnt out lights. Then I discuss my medication and possible reasons for why I was in such a grumpy mood yesterday, plus how you can tell I'm in a bad mood by how messy my writing is.

Close up of my writing. My parents are on vacation, my dogs aren't taking it well.

And lastly, the cover of my journal. It's mint green, but in some lighting, my camera makes it look like a robin's egg blue. At the rate I'm going, I figure I should have this journal done by the end of August or early September.

That's all for now, folks! Thanks for looking :)

Your journal makes the perfectionist in me swoon.

Haha thanks! I'm a bit of a perfectionist myself. I'm using this journal to break myself of the habit of ripping pages out if I'm not satisfied with them (I usually write in spiral-ring notebooks for that purpose).

I really like the simplicity of your journal/order/neatness/very nice/your writing gave me good vibes. Keep sharing and writing/journaling.

Gorgeous! I love how petite your handwriting is :)

Thank you! I'm so used to writing small to save space on the page for school notes. Even now that I'm in university and usually take my notes on my laptop, I haven't shook the habit. Plus, now that I've been doing it for so long, I feel like my writing looks messy when I try to write bigger.

I love your icon, by the way! :D

Thank you! I'm all about saving space on the paper if I can :P

I love your journal! Your style is very similar to mine, but your handwriting is what I could only dream of. Lovely!
