I just love being able to move on to the next journal.
It's satisfying being able to literally close one chapter of your life in the palm of your hands and move on to the next chapter, or book even. I really wanted my experiences at 21 to be exclusive to one journal. I mean, I even engraved the number 21 on the cover, along with three adorable ladybugs.
I bought the yellow one 2 months ago when I was in London for a week. I usually buy a journal based on the sayings engraved on the front because I want the cover to serve as a reminder whenever I open it. Age 22 onwards, I'd really like to stay inspired and ambitious and avoid being a soulless, working adult.
I made the journal just a tiny bit more special by engraving a bee on the cover. Here's the weird thing that happened the day I picked up that journal from the shop—a huge BEE appeared on the floor of my kitchen.
NONE of the windows in my flat were open... but magically, out of nowhere, a fat bee appeared on the floor... Now if only I engraved a Chanel handbag on the cover.
