Finding Focus

I’m having difficulty staying focused lately. While I have no problem making very detailed To-Do lists, I’m lacking the time management to actually tackle it.

Journaling in a Moleskine Notebook | What I Learned

I finished yet another blank notebook – huzzah! – this time a Peanuts themed Moleskine. I’ve used Moleskine journals way back in high school, so journaling in one really brought me back to the basics of putting pen to paper. Only I decided to really go old school and try writing with my soft-leaded Blackwing… Continue reading Journaling in a Moleskine Notebook | What I Learned
