How My Bullet Journalling Style Has Evolved

Skinnyhobbit was recently asking about my bullet journalling setup, and now I'm finally getting around to writing about it. I've journalled off and on since I was a kid. I didn't journal every day, just when I felt like I had something to say, and it was basic narrative style. I kept my old journals… Continue reading How My Bullet Journalling Style Has Evolved

2020: New Year, New Bullet Journal

Here's my lovely little man Peanut alongside my 2020 bullet journal.  It's hardcover, and quite a bit bigger than my 2019 journal.  It's got lots of sparkle on the front, which is cool, particularly since I'm entirely unartistic and there's nothing fancy about what I put inside (aside from stickers). I've kept a lot of… Continue reading 2020: New Year, New Bullet Journal

Planning My Next Bullet Journal

As another bullet journal is getting full, it's time to start thinking about what my next one is going to involve.

Bullet Journalling… Continue reading Book Review: The Bullet Journal Method

Here's what I've got laid out in it so far: Each month gets two one-page monthly calendar overviews; one is for tracking mood/emotions, and the… Continue reading New year, new bullet journal

2018 year in review: Health

Depression does a number on my recall ability, so I turn to my bullet journal to help me look back on 2018 from a health perspective.  The chances of my illness ever going back into full remission seem very slim at this point, so I think it's probably better if I set aside hopes of… Continue reading 2018 year in review: Health

I’m in Love – with Bullet Journalling

While I'd heard of bullet journals before, it was a post by Alys at Alys Journals that finally got me sufficiently motivated to give bullet journalling a try, and vacation seemed like a perfect time to take the plunge.  What I realized as I was getting started was that it's actually much how I used to… Continue reading I’m in Love – with Bullet Journalling
