Empty Notebook full of memories
I have kept hold of this notebook, which was at the bottom of a drawer. There is no longer any writing in it (the pages that I wrote on to friends have long since been ripped out – probably when I read them again at 18 and was embarrassed by my teenage self).
However, when I saw the book I felt quite overwhelmed by it, as I carried it around with me everyday for about 2 years, and the sight of it is so familiar for me. This far more strongly evokes that time in my life – and is a lot easier to hold on to and a lot less embarrassing than a box of letters!
