I have always liked keeping notebooks. Sometimes they served a purpose sometimes not so much. When I come across a notebook from days gone by I sometimes get lost in the writing and am amazed at the changes in the person who wrote these things and the person I am now.
This is funny because, not too long ago, a graphologist friend of mine told me that folks who print (especially in all capitals) do not value or appreciate other people and do not like to have anything at all to do with them. So I hope the graphologist is looking at this and re-examining her own assumptions ...
Love, love, love this. I'm sure I'm about the 1,436,952 person to say this - but I have to get back to this kind of noodling, too. I used to fill 3-suject spiral notebooks with cartoons and writing. I wrote (cursive - look it up) loooooooooooooong letters to my BFF that sometimes took a week or more to finish, also accompanied by illustrations and cartoons (I used to draw! What happened to me?); or book-length love letters to my college sweetheart/subsequent husband (no longer applicable, past sell-by date). Now it's just notes and lists (still in cursive - I have nice handwriting). Thanks for the hedgehogs in sombreros -- and all of it.
I needed this today =) I'm having one of those crabby nothing-is-freaking-going-right-gahhhh!! kind of days and watching everyone else around me rock to the top of the freaking hill while I haven't moved an inch was starting to take a toll. Now at least i'm laughing ;) and i'm still freakishly proud of my friends and family for THEIR success! <3 thanks for this post! =) and the hedgehogs
Love it! I have seen way too much of the other in my lifetime - made me cynical & trying to learn not to be - have been trying for years! :-)
Who coulda predicted that a bunch of stick figures on some loose leaf could have such a powerful message? You amaze me EN. Well done. Thanks for the note about the pic not being to scale too. I was seriously wondering about that.
What is this "pen" of which you speak? Seriously, you should do all of your posts this way. It was better than a bucket of margaritas.
I just realized I have a serious Pilot pen fetish. They're figging everywhere. Desk, drawers, bag, home... if they made Sharpies I think I'd be in serious trouble.
One of my favorite posts you have ever written! I want to say something else cool and insightful here, but... Yeah, this is awesome! Thanks!
We seem to forget that asking the question "how can I help make your life easier?", while weird, actually makes more sense than "me, me, me...". But it only makes sense if you really believe it. Love this one Erika.
You look better (as in "cuter", not so much "healthier") in yesterday's video. But WTF, this is also the real you, brilliant message and all.
