the back of the journal.

my best friend’s birthday is coming up and i wasn’t sure what to get her, so i thought i would take a tip from the high school days and make her a journal. since i had so much time on my hands back then, i used to churn out these composition books faster then you can say “wow.” they aren’t the best in the world, but its nice to put something together to show people that you were thinking of them. i’m not totally artistic or anything but i like showing people that i care.
but also, can we talk about the outrage at the PRICE of a composition book though? i remember they used to be under a dollar when i would do these back in high school, which was about 5-6 years ago. i couldn’t find one in SF less than $3! i understand that because we don’t have target or slave mart [which, more power to us, i think] we can’t get the cheapest price sometimes but i just think that’s insanely outrageous.
this journal also marks my move toward trying to be more creative with my time. i used to spend all these hours of the day taking pictures, making journals, writing, drawing, collaging, sewing in journals and i just don’t do it anymore. considering my abundance of time until school starts [well, maybe less so now that i have a meeting with stuart tomorrow and the paper goes into production early next week…], i want to try and get into the swing of creating more things. and in the midst of this last night, i came up with a slogan:
“more art, less angst.”
its a little impossible to try and live with one and not the other, but i think i’m going to spend less time complaining and more time with my hands.
once doug gets up, we’re off to the ysl exhibit at the de young that i have been dying to see forever. and now its free, thanks to my awesome brother who got me a membership for my birthday! and even better is the fact that he’s coming to see me in a couple weeks! :]
