I love the idea of pen and paper. I love holding and smelling the physical paper... the aesthetic... however, as an aspiring minimalist, I don't love the paper clutter... and I prefer typing rather writing with a pen. I'm not overly enthusiastic about my handwriting, and I like the neatness in typing. I used to keep journals, and in my early decluttering stages, after reading through them, I got rid of them. I processed my life through writing... but now I wanted to live in the present, not hold on to my past.
