Confessions of a notebook addict
I just can’t help myself. I love notebooks. I have carried a notebook around with me ever since I was a kid. I use them for everything – journals, notes, clip files for make-up and photography projects, fashion inspiration, travel, and everyday to-do lists. Although I’m all wired and fancy with my MacBook Pro, iPhone and iPad, none of which I could live without either, there is one small part of me that still remains old school. I can’t seem to give up my Moleskine notebook. (Yes, specifically a Moleskine notebook, because I have tried a dozen and come back to the same one every time). They are small enough to take with you everywhere. There are so many options. There is a history behind them. They look good. They just work for me. And yes, I have also tried every note taking app in an unsuccessful attempt to go paperless and join the 21st century. I’m not saying I’m mad at them. I’m just saying I’m still in love with my notebook, and still keep finding reasons to carry one. I like the feel of pen and paper and the exercise of physically writing, scribbling, doodling and seeing my thoughts in front of me. It keeps me sane, organized, and happy, and that’s good enough for me. Owning a Moleskine kinda makes me feel like I’m part of some sort of secret club (except that it’s not really a secret, and a lot of people actually belong to it too and think the same thing). That being said, I’m not about to give up my iPhone any time soon for anything less than a better iPhone. So don’t get any ideas. See. Digital AND Analog. Happily ever after.
Thanks for stopping by and have a nice day!
