It's time you make your own calligraphy time-lapse video. There are plenty of courses online that teach this beautiful art form and one such course is this.

Learn The Artsy Form Of Journaling

Sometimes, it is important to collect ones thoughts to maintain mental positivity, and one of the ways to do that is journaling. It's not entirely similar to maintaining a dairy.

This course will take you through the process. All you need is a plain book, few colors, and your creativity.
