Journaling Tips ☯

my journal is my baby.    


literally.

I started another journal this year and its one of my goals to finish it. I am currently more than half way done!!!! I have never ever ever finished a journal before, although I have started plenty. I am actually so proud of myself. A ton of my inspo for it has been tumblr. There are blogs on tumblr just for notebooks and journal writing. I'm not even joking, I could spend hours on those blogs. I have always liked the idea of journaling. Being able to come back to a journal and see how much has happened since must be amazing. I really want to experience that holy heck i actually finished a journal look at me look at me!!! feeling. I stared my journal in March and I have taken it everywhere. Even to school because you never know. 

my current journal


1. Keep it near. On your bedside nightstand, a shelf in your room, your backpack and even your purse are good journal places. Although, if you take it out of your house just be careful you don't loose it, because that would be horrible, you know, if someone else read it. If you have snoopy siblings, roommates or parents you probably will want to hide it. Be creative with your hiding places! Also, be very cautious if you do decide to bring it to public places.

2. Do what you want to do with your journal, not what you see other people do. Your journal is for yourself. I know those journal pages you see on tumblr that have collages look cute, but just make sure you ask yourself if that is really what you want to do. If you want to do collages, then you do collages! If you want to incorporate your art into your journal then do it! If you want to keep your journal writing only, then do it! There are no actual rules for journaling.

3. Jotting down dreams is good for self evaluation. A least that's what I think. If you write own your dreams right when you wake you can evaluate them later to see if you see significance in them. There has to be a reason why you dreamt what you did. I have always liked writing down my dreams, mostly because my dreams are super weird. Some of my dreams even gave me inspo for writing subjects.

Dream Series #3

a rewritten dream of mine from Saturday January 15, 2011

 It's the morning of New Years Eve and a fresh, sunny day. A mild breeze is blowing and the sun is shinning bright. I'm with my mom running errands. I'm smiling; I like spending time with my mom, even though it's just small errands. We were getting stuff ready for tonight, we plan to go to someones house for tonight, with the usual family members.

*

The firework display has died down and we are sitting around a bonfire in the front yard, drinking hot chocolate. I bring my legs up onto the chair I am sitting on and cuddle into my soft, warm blanket.

"Did you see that?" my 19 year old cousin, Rudy, said as he got off his chair and stared into the night sky.

"What, some stray fireworks? I didn't see any just now" my aunt Jane said as she joined him at the front of the yard.

"No, it was moving blue lights. They were going fast," Rudy didn't take his eyes away from the sky.

"You're ridic-" my younger sister started to say, but was cut off my older brother.

"They're over there!" he exclaimed as he pointed to a spot in the sky. We all followed his pointing. Sure enough there were three bright blue lights, in the formation of a triangle, moving rapidly in the sky.

We all stood up and watched as the lights zipped through the sky in various directions at a high speed.

"It's definitely not an airplane. They don't move that way," my uncle, Steve, told us as he got out his phone and started recording.

"They are UFO's!" Rudy spoke up again. I had always believed in aliens, I just never thought that I would see an actual UFO.

The lights stopped and seemed to grow in size.

"Are they..." my mom started to say.

"They're getting closer!" Steve said as he stopped recording. We all slowly started to step back.

"Hurry! In the house!" He added and we all scurried inside. We watched from the living room windows as the lights grew larger and brighter. The lights grew really bright so we all backed away from the window. Pretty soon a blue light flowed all through the house. I went and stood next to my mom and siblings, more frightened than I have ever been before.

*

I woke up in the living room, the sun had already risen. Rudy rubbed his eyes, he just waking up too. We looked at each other in confusion and started waking everyone up.

"What happened last night?" my sister questioned all groggily. I remember the firework display and drinking hot chocolate, but nothing after that.

"I don't...remember" Rudy paced around the room looking at the clock and cable box. The cable box said it was 7:56 a.m.

"My watched is stopped at 10:32 p.m. What happened?" My brother said, just as confused as everybody else.

"You guys..." Steve stood at the doorway, looking at his phone. He entered the room and sat down on the couch.

There was a video on his phone from last night. There were lights in the sky, and then the lights started to get closer, which is the last part of the video. He scrolled past the video and onto a picture. The picture showed all of us laying on metallic tables in a row, with lights shinning down on us. In the corner of the picture is a grey, bald figure, with two large round and dark eyes, staring at us with a small knife in its hand.

Sunday Funday (not really)


  • This week has been quite the same as the others this summer. I worked on posts, drew some things, read through some magazines, made collages, read parts of books and took some pictures.
  • While I was playing with my little cousin Wednesday I accidentally bumped my arm on to the fence in my yard. It hurt so much. The bruise wasn't that noticeable but it still hurt like crazy when I touched it. There was a small bump on my arm too.
  • I think I've mentioned this before but lately I've been on StumbleUpon, under the paranormal interest, of course. This website shows you web pages having to do with the interest(s) you choose. You 'stumble upon' new web pages. Lol.


I hope you all have a marvelous week! Let me know in a comment below what websites have been your boredom go-to lately.
