A look back at my Dr. Nbooks

Today I finished another paper journal. I've kept a paper journal since I was eleven, and the journals have accumulated with time. At this point the boxes of journals (two at this point) have gotten disorganized and needed a huge overhaul. So I told myself that I would take all of them out of the boxes, arrange them on my bedroom floor, snap a photo, and organize them properly in their boxes--this time with feeling.

Here are the two boxes in question. The box that isn't quite full contains the earlier journals, which is the main reason I wanted to give the boxes an overhaul.

The cover of my very first journal. The first twenty-five or so journals are all titled with the Keep Out general scheme.

The very first entry. Appropriate to write about notebooks? Maybe not, but that's what happened. I still write in cursive now, but it's a little less bubbly these days.

All my notebooks, including the new one.

Another fun fact: I spotted Sushi for the first time on the cover of number fourteen. I didn't see Sushi mentioned inside a journal before then, but to be fair I only skimmed a few pages. The nickname Sushi showed up much more often after that.

This kind of massive rearranging probably won't happen too often. I predict that it won't happen until at least 100 journals, which should take at least two more years. So unless I move again I won't have to drag all these journals anywhere after packing them up again. Huzzah.

I absolutely love looking at all of those and being able to pick out which ones I remember you carrying.

I should post this to Facebook and see if they can do the same.

If I had all my diaries it would cover the years 1968 till 2011. I burned my diaries from 1968 till 1977 when I left Calif. many years ago-now I just have diaries from 1978 till today-if was to spread out all my diaries it would take too much space-cool pictures of your diaries-I wish I had my diaries when I was 17 years old till my early twenties-well keep writing-peace Jonny
