I avoided the journal for a while because I failed at finishing it all in December. I came to the realization that it’s not something I should necessarily set a deadline for because that isn’t the point in the journal. It’s an escape, a release and at the same time it’s supposed to be fun. It’s not a project that can have a deadline.
So I picked it up again with something easy first:
More than half of December is already over, and there are still many unfinished pages to go. I think I counted over 90 challenges total and I’m not sure if I even did half that many yet. I want to stick to my goal and finish the entire book of challenges by the end of the year.
I love having someone to go through the adventure with. It makes it that much more entertaining. It also helps to have someone that isn’t as personal attached to the book, who will push you to actually destroy it.
I was pretty distracted last week, so I have a ton of journal wrecking to catch up on if I want to finish this thing before the new year. I wanted to draw you something cool with an endless line, but somehow it turned into a some sort of toddler’s attempt to draw turtles. I don’t know what I was thinking.
After doing the page where I had to bring the book to the shower with me, the book got pretty wrecked. I think that sort of started me wanting to ruin it more, since it already is. I’m finally breaking out of that shell of not wanting to ruin the book. Now I can’t wait to see what is left of it when it is all over.
Here’s another update on my Wreck This Journal journey. I realize I actually have quite a ways to go in order to finish this entire thing by the end of the year, so you might see much bigger posts to come.
Here’s another progress on my journal wrecking journey. I started off by doing some of the cheesy easy ones on my own such as this: Naturally, since music is always on my mind, I thought I might as well right the word a million billion times. Woot, made some shapes out of it too.
I bought Keri Smith’s Wreck This Journal almost 2 years ago with my best friend who also has one. We were supposed to trade when we were done. I found it again recently and wondered why I had not finished it. At first I thought that maybe I had no time, but the truth is.. I’m pretty OCD about notebooks. Despite the title of this journal, it actually hurt me a little at the thought of wrecking my notebooks. As you know, I LOVE to collect notebooks, many of which are empty and wrecking this one was like a nerd opening a mint condition collectible and stepping on it. However, I’ve set a new goal for myself.. I’m going to finish this thing by the end of this year. It will be an adventure, and I’ll blog about my progress.
