Instead of spamming social media with things I find, I’ll do a weekly post with some of the things that get tangled up in my brain. Or hair. Really, it has a mind of its own.
Midori Travelers Notebook review from a man’s perspective. I love color, but when it comes to journals, notebooks and planners, I like for them to be plain. I get easily distracted, plus I want the option of decorating vs not decorating a page to my taste. There are so many reviews for the Midori out there that are covered in stickers, washi, scrapbook paper and other paraphernalia, and while they are beautiful, I feel like you can’t really get the bare bones essentials of the notebook from them. I liked this review for that exact reason. It’s to the point, without any sparkles. He also put together a pretty good video with suggestions on how to improve your handwriting. I see many people in the planning/journaling community concerned with their penmanship.
Questions posted to the NYPL pre-Internet. If you’ve ever been in the business of providing information to others (be it as a teacher, customer service, librarian, etc), I’m sure you have a list of oddballs. While you’re on a roll, look up Richard Lederer’s “Anguished English“.
Tim Hawkins is one of my favorite comedians. He has a book coming out. In a world where cussing, adult themes and body parts are a source of hilarity (which in general, I have no issues with, though it can get boring when it’s the main source of material), it’s good to find someone who doesn’t need them in order to be awesome.
Have a great day!
