So I came across this little notebook that is actually from Jamaica – I used these notebooks throughout high school as subject notebooks. I filled this particular notebook with stickers from when I lived in Medford, Oregon. I wrote my desired Nickname on the cover of the notebook. The notebook then traveled back to the States with me to Atlanta, Georgia where it lived in storage while I moved to England and then New Zealand. I can’t really remember when I was reunited with this notebook, but looking at it now – the stickers falling off the page, the puffy aliens, the unicorns and rainbows, the 80s phrases – I am transported back to those days. Collecting stickers that expressed my passions, traveling with my sister on the bus to Ashland and going to stores filled with stickers, then putting them in albums, trading them with friends, decorating with them. Simpler days, happy days, True nostalgia.
