BuJo (Vol.1)

I used to keep a diary (or journal if you're from the other side of the Atlantic) and sometimes it was quite detailed. But I stopped doing it quite a few years ago now. I think partly because even if I had a boring day it would take me 15 mins or so to write up my day and thoughts and while looking back at them now they were okay to read I felt those 15 mins could be better spent. Or something like that.

But I have missed it in some ways; it was always nice to be able to go back over events (and dates of when they happened).

Over the last few weeks I've seen a few people on Twitter mentioning Bullet Journaling. And the idea has piqued my interest. As well as my previous love of writing a diary journal thing I'm also a bit of a sucker for a list. So the idea of BuJos seem good in both ways.

I've been on a few websites looking at how it works and think I've got to grips with it. But it is a shame none of the websites seem to have a single page 'cheat sheet', which surprises me as the websites suggest the idea is a bit clunky - and it's not really.

After a quick look at the websites today I realised I had a spare empty notebook so I thought I'd give it a go and see if I can keep it up. At least after a fashion.

If you are interested have a look at the BuJo website.

I may well put up a 1 page cheat sheet/background up here at some point soon.
