Perhaps it's not too late

I know it's wrong, but I stole a journal from Barnes and Noble. One look at the cover, and I was in love. I didn't take it as soon as I saw it. You see, the pages are unlined. This scared me. It isn't because I'd end up writing all over the place, because I actually write pretty straight on unlined paper. (well... sort of) I was scared because that meant endless possibilities. It wasn't until about five visits later that I decided I'd figure something out eventually. So I took off the bar code sticker and the alarm sticker and I stuck that sucker in my bag. (Out of the view of cameras of course. NOTE: I am a master klepto. Don't try it. Don't!)

If you know me, you know that I own so many notebooks, they broke the shelf in my closet. Granted it's a really cheap shelf, but still. What does a notebook weight? An ounce? [Five actually]
If you know me even better, then you'll know I keep at least three journals at a time. I wanted this journal to have a specific use.

In the previous post, I wrote about how I can no longer create. Well, today my favorite magazine in the WORLD came in the mail. That would be NYLON magazine. If you read it, you know how inspiring it can be. It's absolutely the greatest. It's my muse! So naturally, I was inspired by just looking at a few pages on the inside.

Even better, I randomly came across stOOpidgErl [1] [2] She is absolutely the coolest person in the world (She's also actually a 28 year old woman, not a girl). I won't ramble on about that. Click her links and check out how cool she is. She's everything I want to be someday. THE POINT IS I am getting my creative side back! All I needed was a little inspiration! I am using the new journal to put in random quotes, lyrics, pictures, etc. that make up me. It's probably cooler than it sounds. So I'll put up pics from time to time.

Lesson Learned: It is never too late to get yourself back. (Unless you're dead)
