I'm getting deliriously close to finishing my remains of the day journal. It will be the first journal I've ever filled completely before abandoning and moving on. I've been working on finishing up some pages I started months ago but never got back to. Most of them I'm not absolutely in love with but they are meaningful enough to me to finish recording or working through. And it feels great to have them done, like I'm actually accomplishing something for a change.
My favorite thing about this type of journal is all the ephemera and random goodies attached to every page. I've always collected this kind of junk from my everyday life but usually find it difficult to actually work it into my journaling process. It rarely seems to fit or be pretty enough for me. But this journal is not about being pretty but about salvaging, recording, recycling, and remembering. It is tactile and expressive and...well, fat. I can barely close the thing! I think that's my favorite part.
