I purchased a paper notebook in the hopes of journalling regularly, but it never gained much traction. My hope is that keeping a commonplace journal will be more sustainable.
Commonplace books (or commonplaces) are a way to compile knowledge, usually by writing information into books. They have been kept from antiquity and were kept particularly during the Renaissance and in the nineteenth century. Such books are similar to scrapbooks filled with items of many kinds: sententiae (often with the compiler's responses), notes, proverbs, adages, aphorisms, maxims, quotes, letters, poems, tables of weights and measures, prayers, legal formulas, and recipes.

Since I just finished watching Ted Lasso again with my family the first five entries are going to be my favorite quotes from the show. This should help me build momentum.
I'm off to make my first entry.
