Regarding John Green

I love John Green. 

I mean, I devour Crash Course videos.

my notes on Crash Course Philosophy

I watch his vlogs. I love hearing his thoughts on subjects.

I have John Green quotes in my journal.

I read books he recommends.
But I haven’t read any of HIS books.

Is that awful?
I feel bad lol. I feel like I SHOULD read one of his books.

But every time I see them I’m just like:

I know I do not want to read The Fault in Our Stars.
I'm kinda leaning towards reading Paper Towns....

Are there any of his books you'd recommend?
(BESIDES The Fault in Our Stars..)

Calendar Journal Pages

(Jeepers! I thought I had only missed posting last week but I'd actually missed two weeks? o.O)

Once upon a time.... 
          I actually kept proper diaries/journals. I'd sit down at the end of most days & write about what I did, thought, & felt that day. But I felt less motivated to do that as I got older & eventually my journalling became very sporadic. 

My journals became more lists, poems, quotes & notes and less a record of my days.  

I still missed having that record tho, & at one point I started making lists of all the important things that had happened that month. 

Sometimes it was hard to decide what was important enough to include on these lists. And I wanted to remember things like when I last talked to someone, or if I mailed something... so I started keeping really plain calendar pages in the back of my journals too. 

And then I discovered  Kate Crane's art calendar journals. My calendar pages been like that for years now. 

 Sometimes I don't have time to do the background or anything in advance & then my calendars are pretty basic & just doodled as I go along.


Lately, I've been splitting my months up into 1-2 weeks at a time & getting more inspiration from planner pages (even tho mine are all done after the fact & not used for planning at all lol)

Do you keep any type of journal?
