Writers are precious about their materials.
But some of us are way too jaded to write in a journal that says,
“CARPE DIEM” or “YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL” or “BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.”
I need my journal to be as much of a fucking joke as I am.
So, I wrote, designed, and printed stickers that say the kinds of things I want
displayed on my journal cover for the world to see. They range from
“brilliant soliloquies” to “an affront to God,” and none of them say “carpe diem.”
