Have you heard of Bullet Journals? People on the DL called it BUJO. I still call it bullet journaling. I’m not advanced enough for nicknames.
Getting into Bullet Journaling has a sharp learning curve. And spending frenzy.
There are a lot of pens. Lots and lots of pens. There doesn’t have to be, but then what would the fun be in that.
We have a new router that helps keep out websites unsuitable for lovable little families like mine and it turns the internet off the kids’ gadgets at 10pm. If they knew how I felt about pens, I think the router would block me from The Goblet Pen Company website.
I got a catalogue of pens in the mail. It was my favorite thing in the mail all week. My daughter asked why anyone wanted a catalogue of only pens. I couldn’t begin to explain. I simply said, “Because they’re so pretty.”
So now I have an excuse to have many wonderful pens. I can make amazing pages that keep me organized. It’s perfect and wonderful. Except that when you first set it up, you spend a lot of time deciding which pages you want in your journal, and how to design them and if your handwriting should be seen by anyone else.
This isn’t my first bullet journal, but like I said, there is a learning curve. I was using it as a general calendar. I want it to be more than just a list of appointments. I decided I wanted to use it to keep track of my goals and to keep track of my goals and how I’m doing with them.
I’m not doing very well, but that’s for another day.
And I decided I needed to buy sparkly horse and cat stickers.
