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.

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 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 it 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 journal… Continue reading I’m in love – with journalling
