I had been in need of a new journal for a while, something to just write daily events in. My favorite journal to date has been the I Can’t Sleep Inner Truth Journal by Knock Knock. It was just a fun journal. I liked the quotes and colors even though it was quite bulky at 7 x 9.5 inches.

Another previous journal that I tried using was a Northbooks notebook. But found it was not ideal for journaling (at least for me). The notebook itself is a quality notebook, which I will probably do a review on in the future. But the pages didn’t lay flat so it was hard for me to write in. This bothered me since I couldn’t use the full page and my pen would be uneven while I wrote.

For journaling, the paper quality is not as important to me. But the binding should allow the pages to lay flat so I can write from edge to edge. A bonus if it looks pretty, but everything else is optional for me. This is one of those journals I just want to write in and forget.

This pen has a fine point tip of 0.38mm, which works great for me. Since my writing is a mess when I’m brainstorming. The thin lines really helps with the readability after.
