One type of journal I’ve become fascinated with recently is the commonplace book. I’ve come across people talking about commonplace books before, but I’ve always had the impression that a commonplace book was a notebook where you wrote things you wanted to remember.

    Passion Planner | Thoughts and Review

    I’ve been wanting to write a Passion Planner review for a long time. I first came across this planner right around the time I started college.
