Love You LO - Long Journaling

mi sono sempre piaciuti i journaling molto lunghi (stile Wilna), ma non ho mai saputo veramente cosa scrivere. mi viene difficile mettere nero su bianco cose molto personali anche per il fatto che spesso pubblico i miei layout su internet. dato che il journaling lungo mi piace soprattutto per un fattore estetico, tendo a scrivere testi di canzoni, di scrittori o poesie che rispecchiano il mio stato d'animo (ma non sempre) e che quindi mi permettono di ottenere l'effetto desiderato senza espormi troppo.
I've always loved long journalings (Wilna style) but most of the times, I don't know what to write. I feel embarassed writing down my feelings knowing that they will be red on the internet by people that don't know me at all. the solution could be easy: not to publish my works online! you're right. but first, I don't share ALL my layouts on my blog. they're just a small part. then, I must admit that I feel embarassed also knowing that people who know me very well (like my family and friends) are going to read my personal stuff face to face. so, what I came up with is simple: I don't write MY words, but I use other's words to express my feelings. lyrics, poems, book's portions that I love etc. this way I feel comfortable and I know that people will give less attention to it!

in questo caso ho preso in prestito le parole della bravissima Susanna Casciani. potete leggere le sue meraviglie cliccando qui.
in this case I used Susanna Casciani's words. she has a blog where she share poems and little stories that she writes. I literally love everything that she writes. even if you don't understand italian, you can find her blog by clicking here

Window LO

Journaling says "But I love you and I believe that one day you will come around but can you tell me how do I always end up being the girl at the window..."

no particular meaning but I love that song by Bruno Mars and it's good to write down words like these sometimes..
