I’ve got what I consider to be a “weird” hobby (or habit?) – writing in notebooks. I consider it weird, because I have no practical use for notebooks – other than my “bullet journal” set up, I don’t really write down anything of substance day-to-day. And yet, it’s an extremely enjoyable thing to see my personal font jump out just right from the page.
OK, the picture I just included is a little on the messy side. But what I hope it illustrates is just the right balance of colour and shape of the letters that seems to look…”right” on the page. This is the part where I consider my hobby / habit weird. I don’t spend as much time writing things out as I used to, but finding the perfect paper and perfect pen (or sometimes pencil) for that paper is fantastic.
Every now and then (and now is one of those times) I go on a little quest to figure out, “what can I use my varied selection of notebooks for?” The question is often unanswered, because either I give up or the feeling just fades away before I get a chance. Predominantly I use it for planning my day or writing things down I don’t want to forget. But that is purely functional – I actually want to write something out rather than use a planner.
So my search has started. At the absolute least I will probably start writing out my blog posts by hand before typing them out here. Ultimately, I would very much like to use up the notebooks that I’ve spent good money on 😉
