There are loads of blank books for recording things like your family history, autobiography or daily journal prompts, but are there any designed to help you build an actual scrapbook of a year in your life? Like where it asks about books you read, photos of trips you took, "paste ticket stubs here," etc?
Like a Wreck This Journal, but creating instead of destroying. I need a Build-Your-Own-Scrapbook tutorial, basically. Or, since I can't go back in time and take this class, are there any websites with template ideas? (of actual content, not just designs)
Inevitable alternate question: have you ever made a scrapbook, or known anyone who has? Discuss.
There's a mixer at a bar for students at my grad school. It happens once every week, and this is the first one.
Pros: I'm new, living in a city and I'm feeling just a (tiny) bit lonely. I think should try to be proactive about meeting new people (I haven't made many friends yet), and this could be a nice way to do that. I enjoy going out and a bar event might be a fun way to get to know my classmates and loosen up over drinks.
Cons: The bar is about an hour away from my place on public transportation, so it is a bit of a pain getting there and back.
I'm also feeling kind of socially drained. We had a very lengthy orientation. I had lunch with a group of new people today and I've signed up for another event tomorrow. It's been a lot of small talk and 'team-building' type exercises for the past couple of weeks, both of which I find exhausting.
There's a lot of people at my school and so it will likely be crowded tonight - mingling with such a large crowd of people might not be the best way to make friends at all.
If you were in my situation, would you go out or stay in tonight?
I remember making absolute soul-filled wishes as a kid. I sometimes lol at what my life would be like, had I been granted those wishes as a four year old.
I would now be married to Bo Duke and living in a pink, pink castle with several horses. If Bo Duke turned me down, I planned on marrying the lead singer of the Bay City Rollers as backup. (Yes, I realize I'm totally dating myself here.)
