Bullet Journals

Fairly recently, Rachel and I started bullet journaling.

(Is that a word? Journaling? It is now.)

It was something that we always wanted to do, especially since both of us are on Pinterest and see all the pretty and extremely fancy bullet pages that people create to help get their lives in order. Our pages are nowhere near as fancy, but the few we’ve done have suited our needs.

I have a weekly spread for the rest of the year, mainly just to record blog posts for both this blog and Double Jump and a Word Count Tracker page. And, at this point and time, the Word Count Tracker is still blank.

I have been writing, of course, usually just small scribbles in my notebooks when relaxing before bed, but I haven’t been cataloging the amount of words in my journal. What I should do is date every little box I have on the tracker to try to write everyday on my WIPs instead of just sporadically, and color in the boxes on days that I actually write and don’t write. Like, have an angry red or sad blue on days that I don’t write.

Anyone else do bullet journals?

Of Diaries and Journals

In my last year of high school, one of my good friends had gifted me with a notebook.

The notebook was light blue in color and featured a simple little cat with a fish. The cat (and, subsequently, the notebook) was fondly called, “Jeffury,” and it was always with me for the rest of the school year where I scribbled in it during every free moment I had. For the next few years, the name Jeffury was attached to every journal I had written in.

These journals consisted of stories, fanfiction and original, and just everyday rambles about school, work, family. I would always find the time to write in them while in school, both high school and during college.

However, when I left college behind, so too did I seem to leave journal writing. Jeffury VI has been half full for years now. I’ve continued writing, of course, both typing and longhand, but for some reason, writing journal-style has become lost to me.

I wonder, has anyone else simply grown out of certain ways or styles of writing? We all improve the more we practice and write, of course, but to see how one’s style changed like evokes both awe and a bittersweet nostalgia. I have bins full of notebooks, some full, some empty, some in varying degrees of in between. It’s always nice to take the time every once in a while to relax and write longhand, isn’t it?

How about you? What do your notebooks look like?
