5-Year Journal

I've always liked keeping a journal. The only problem is (as seen here and elsewhere), I sometimes suffer from writer's block and lack of creativity. Whenever I'm going through a problem in life, I can't stop writing, because writing is one of my coping mechanisms. However, when everything is going well, or just a little on the boring side, the pen stops.

I'd like to push past this and force myself to write through all experiences-good and bad-but in the meantime, the 5-year Question a day journal has caught my eye. I've seen the 5-year journals before and I think they are a great idea. This journal prompts you with a question a day, on multiple topics, for 5 years. It would be fun seeing how your answers change through the years. But, another aspect I like is the new random topic to write about. This journal has very little space, but the question might be the little spark that you need to write a more substantial journal entry or essay.

Definitely an item I can see myself buying in the future.

Jessica Pratt

I recently stumbled upon the music of San Francisco based singer, Jessica Pratt. Her voice seems to be of a different decade, 60s or 70s perhaps?  Beautiful and haunting. Definitely worth a listen.
Her album just came out November 6.

This is the first track on the album: Night Faces

On Halloween night I went over to my friend Kati's house to watch scary movies. Halloween is usually the only time that you will see me watching a scary/horror movie. I'm such a wimp! We didn't dress up, but Kati's dogs did. They looked adorable in their jailbird and skunk outfits.
