Let’s face it: Classes can go on for ages. You may be left wondering Wait, what in the world is this teacher talking about, again? and, What’s for lunch? But here’s another way to count down the hours: keeping a doodle journal with a friend, or multiple friends. It takes passing notes to a whole new level. Plus, it’s a productive way to space out. The pages you’re about to see are from a journal we (Isabel and Ana) passed back and forth.
For your doodle journal, you can use any notebook at all, though maybe not the same one you use to take notes for, like, chemistry. We suggest customizing the cover with all the cute and colorful stickers and washi tapes you can find!
Decide who gets the journal during which class periods and when the handoffs should take place. When it’s your turn with the journal, there are no rules.
Draw the cuties in your class, imagine your friend’s next #ootd, illustrate your English notes, keep a list of things you don’t want to forget…like that THING, remember?
Don’t forget cute self portraits and secret notes! Wrap the day up with doodles that scream, “SCHOOL’S OUT,” even if it is temporary.
Want to make sure your pal doesn’t miss the dreamy scene you’re seeing as you stare out the window? Draw it! Quirky substitute teachers make excellent muses. Eclectic lunch boxes double as still-art subjects.
Voilà! You’ve got a graphic novel in your hands to cherish and giggle over forever! ♦
