I really am a blog junky. I love reading blogs. Mainly about design and about food. One of my favorites is Cocina Marie. She is a childhood friend, though more of my sister’s than mine. She is also a lawyer who has turned into a foodie, cookbook writer, wife and mom. She may be practicing a little law too, but she doesn’t talk much about that on her blog. A blog about practicing law would be pretty boring, given the attorney client privilege and all. Recently, Marie highlighted an idea that I am taking on myself.
It is a memory book for five years. Each page has a day of the calendar year with space for all five years of memories. This makes it easy to compare your memories on a given day from year to year.
At first, I thought I would wait until January. Starting a memory book mid-year seems weird and disorganized. But then I had a bad day and thought about the book, and how nice it would be to log goodness in my day. And so I decided to start it, and write a line everyday of something good that happened–my highlight of the day. In theory, this will make me focus on something good everyday. And lately I have needed it. Our office moved up north, which means a commute to and from work. And the commute is to a rather depressing location in the middle of office building/cubicle land. It sort of sucks the life right out of you. Except it is just work–not life. I need to focus on the good in life. And this book is meant to help.
Here goes nothing.
Expect a report in 5 years. Maybe sooner.
