    • Hey guys~
      As the most popular activity you all wanted, I made you guys that prompt thread and will help you guys update it until you have a proper keeper. ^-^ I figured though since Nano is nearly over, we'd wait till December 1st to kick that thread off right! That being said, Nano is nearly over. It's been a long, hard month but it's not too late to get in last minute points for your house. I believe in you guys and good job to those of you who have participated!!

So I'm currently in Germany, studying abroad, and I've been here for about a month and I went to Hamburg with some friends today and literally walked all day, but I have so much restless energy. Like I feel like I can run a mile. Also, everything closes at like...7:30 in the little city I'm living in, and Germany is closed on Sundays, so there's nothing I can really get done tomorrow either (which I love but also I wanna go out and go explore stores and stuff).

Also, question. For those of you who have done travel journals before, what's the best type? I'm currently using a hardcover journal, but I've only done 12 pages, with nothing more than like...a postcard glued a few or some construction paper but it barely closes. It's a nice book, so I don't want to ruin it and want to get a new journal for it, but it has to be one that postcards will fit on.
Or should I just get a binder and some page protectors, and put stuff on colored paper? Or would that look stupid? I don't bring it with me every city I go to, but in April I'll be going to London and Scotland and will be bringing it with me (but I'll also have a tiny suit case with me).
I really do like those snazzy journals with the little elastic bands that hold several different types of paper and they have the leather covers, but I can't find any in stores around here that are big enough and I don't want to order one online because then I have to wait for shipping and more importantly, have no idea what address to give them because it could be the house address or the office address for the study abroad program I'm using, and it's just a hassle. So suggestions?

  • @AlmightTallest
    have you thought of getting a photo album maybe and using it like a scrapbook for your journal? like one of the sticky ones like this one or this one?? you can stick photographs, postcards and write on paper and stick them in. unlike normal photo albums, there's no set size to the things you put in except for the size of the pages. i feel like if you're inserting a lot of paper sort of goods, it'd be a good idea to go with a binder or photo album, as those are made to hold more paper than there's already in them. with the sticky photo albums you can find them in a faux leather easily, but idk how available they are over there. they used to be the only type of photo album back when my parents were growing up and i've always thought they'd be good for journals and scrapbooking lol.

Looking for a 1x1 partner

Wed Feb 20, 2019 10:58 am

Had an idea for a 1x1. Wondering if anyone here'd be up for it.

2 extremely shy people (1 male, 1 female) writing diary entries about each other. They are deeply in love - confirmed soul mates. They either work together or they go to the same school.They never see each others diaries.
The only mandatory characteristic for each character is that they'll be too shy to ask the other person out.

Message me if you're interested.
