At around the end of the year like in November and December, you will find varieties of "techo" at many shops and we are just absorbed in choosing which one is a favorite for the next year. We take one by one in hand and look into them one after another carefully whether or not it is the best. Some like small ones, some big ones , or daily schedule, or dairy, or just a notebook with plain pages ---there are lots of kinds, indeed.
I've been choosing the same brand for more than 10 years but this year I picked up the different one since I come to enjoy writing anything happened like you do in your diary and keep jotting down anything which I find informative and which I don't want to forget. So I chose one I can fill out one page for a single day. I enjoy making my "techo" very interesting vision-wise. I took some pictures usually with my cell phone camera and I print out on sheets of small stickers. It's fun. Here is the Japanese "techo" site I like.
(my pages --- confidential)
To tell you the truth, I never be a good writer and every year many pages have been neglected in blank. But this time I think this hasn't occurred to me yet. I've been writing every day! Incredible!
In this world of IT, we can make the best use of computers or cell phones to save any information on the web. But it is true on the other hand people are more likely to enjoy the analog side of daily life in writing and drawing.
Do you have your own notebook which you love to keep it around with you?
