Do you journal

I've been thinking. I really want to get back into journaling. But I want to do something more then that. I mean, I really always have in some respect.
I write down where I went who I went with in my daily 'todo' list type journal. Sometimes I add sketches and ticket stubs, but I don't always include feelings and words about the day, and even more rarely photos.
But I really think this might be the way to go. Something that will be both functional and still capture life.
Do any of you do that? Got suggestions?
Here is some past snapshots into my 'todo' list.
I use a Franklin Covey todo list model for the most part (at least that's where it started), I don't always used to priority stuff though, I'm not always good at that. I suppose I just have a running 'priority list' in my head. But as I get older...I start thinking that maybe this is also something I should be more cognoscente of.

I used a computer journaling software for a while. I don't remember what it was called. I wasn't a huge fan. But I am feeling more and more drawn to journaling lately. I think something is just missing in my life, you know. A good girlfriend to really bend the ear of. Don't get me wrong, I have some great friends and I do bend their ear (although I probably bend Chris's more then anyone elses). But I'm just missing that one person who will kinda get it all. I don't know that I've ever had one of those, perhaps the journal has always been that for me.

And the journaling probably isn't hurt by the fact that I LOVE paper and notebooks. :)

  1. The true answer is that you will be marrying the man that you love and want to spend the rest of your life with. Don't obsess about stuff that you probably won't remember anyway.

    Remember to breathe and enjoy yourself.

    That being said.... simply walking with happy music (whatever that may be) on your ipod should help immensely. Wake up an hour early every day.... do you 45 minutes of walking wherever that may be and shower and feel more productive all day. You'll feel better about yourself and sleep better too! I need to take my own advice :)
