Here we are, week 6 of Wreck This Journal, and I’m at such a breaking point right now. OK, maybe not a breaking point, but kind of a standstill. A standstill for wusses. I’ve discovered that I am so embarrassed to do anything weird & public with the journal (like walk it)- or even ask someone to wreck it for me (like one page instructs) – that I just completely, uh, stopped wrecking. For a week. A week! That’s why there was no entry last week, although I came up with various excuses that consciously convinced me that they were the real reason I wasn’t wrecking (although subconsciously I knew better). So I’m still on the “safe” pages, like the ones I wrecked this week (which can’t even be all pretty like they usually are, because Picnik is stinking today & won’t compress my photos! Grr!):
Even though the stamp page has been covered, it’s way too neat & orderly for me. I have a feeling that I’m gonna keep piling on the stamps until we’re officially done at the end of the month.
I could not figure out how to cover the hole at the bottom of my funnel, so the water kept pouring through. I finally stuck my pinky finger in there, filled it up, & drank the water as quickly as possible before it all spilled out. I think I probably drank a quarter of what I poured in there. I was such a water chaser.
I never put my jeans in the dryer (unless I’m not interested in eating or breathing the next day), so I had to dry my page on the drying rack. I liked having it there.
I have so many random items in my purse that I decided to limit myself to the garbage that was in there. As you can see, I had a cold recently & practically live on Orbit gum. I really like the empty pack of gum that I glued on the left page, since it sticks out of my journal & makes it look extra wrecky.
Now don’t get me wrong, dear readers & fellow wreckers – I am having fun with my wrecking! But, I hate to say it, I’m getting bored. I want to go outside & rub the journal in the dirt! I want to live by my Wreck This Journal mantra of Make a Mess, Michelle & do it for the world to see. OK, that last part is a lie, but I do want to take this to another level & I have to get over this shyness (which I’ve never experienced before ever. Really. Not once).
So I’m going to promise you this: this week, I’m going to make myself do whatever page I turn to. I’m not allowed to pick & choose this week! That’ll show me.
