Buying notebooks, or anything for that matter, makes me really happy but the happiness that I get out of a purchase is more often than not, pretty volatile. Rubs off almost the exact same day.
The great thing is, some of the things I own really give me an overwhelming sense of gratification a half or year or so of keeping it.
I bought this notebook last year in one of my trips to Manila and I’ve been using it whenever I feel like writing or when I need somewhere to keep skinny ideas that I hope I could turn into full bodied ones somewhere along the way. I take it on trips and I scribble on it when I’m in a different city or just extremely bored at home. It’s also the keeper of my failed and unfinished attempts at things. But it actually amuses me to flip through it and remember the things I’ve tried doing in desperation. HAHA.
I think everybody should keep a notebook. Even just one for now until the rest of our lives. For something extra you could look back on in addition to the millions of photos of the food we’ve eaten. haha
