This year, I've decided to try keeping a bullet journal. I have limited artistic skills, which kept me from starting one before now, but I've decided to just do what I can and focus on using the journal for organization and memory-keeping. I used to keep a daily journal when I was in high school and college, and that made it easy to keep track of the major events of my life and when they took place. Now that I don't do that anymore, I feel like a lot of memories are lost unless I happen to post them to social media and they turn up on Timehop a year later. So I am using a big blank book I've had hanging around for probably ten years, the crayons my mother-in-law gave the kids for Christmas and an old box of colored pencils that desperately need sharpening, and I'm ready to jump in and see how it goes. I'm planning to track daily tasks and important events, as well as important days of the liturgical year, my reading challenges, and the books I read, but I will also include occasional short paragraphs documenting important ideas, moments, and memories.
Swipe to see samples from a few of my pages: key, 2018 future log, reading challenges tracker, list of books read in 2018, blogging ideas, and my first weekly spread of the year.
