FCJ #1: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling was the first book in my First Chapters Journal (FCJ) Project. I used Diamine Aurora Borealis in my Pilot Kakuno with a fine nib. Why did I choose this book? It seemed fitting to start my FCJ Project with a childhood favorite: Harry Potter and the […]

Intro to First Chapters Project

What is the First Chapters Journaling Project? The First Chapters Journaling Project is quite simple. It’s a journal that I’m keeping with handwritten copies of the first chapters of my favorite books. I started the project in April 2021 primarily as a way to explore my newfound love for fountain pens and inks. The idea […]

Hello September!

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Honestly, I feel like I’ve gone on a journey with social media, journaling, and reading the last couple of months. It’s been quite the roller coaster. My personal life hasn’t changed. (I’m still in dire need of a vacation.) My reading is still very off and on. But my […]

Stalogy Editor’s Series 365Days Notebook Review

Hello June!

Well, June kind of just snuck up on me. I was entirely not ready for this. My reading stats is still super terrible, but I’m not all that upset about it because I’m still interacting with books on a daily basis. It’s just in a different way… View this post on Instagram A post shared […]

Hello, May!

Review: We Are Not Free by Traci Chee

Review: We Are Not Free by Traci Chee

We Are Not Free by Traci Chee was a tough book for me to read. Not because it was a terrible story or anything, but because it was hard to read about people that are culturally like me having to go through the horrors of WWII. We don’t talk about the forced relocation and incarceration […]

Review: The Way You Make Me Feel by Maurene Goo

Review: The Way You Make Me Feel by Maurene Goo

The Way You Make Me Feel by Maurene Goo was a sweet YA contemporary about relationships and how the more invested you become in something or someone, the more emotional risk you have in that relationship. I’m going to be completely honest… I was a Rose in high school. I never had a meltdown that […]

We’re Nearly Through a Quarter of the Year

Can you believe it’s almost April? 2021 is both flying by and moving at a snail’s pace. I feel like the days drag, but I also feel like time is flying by too quickly without much getting done. If that makes sense at all. I’m really struggling to find the motivation to do things these […]
