Has Using a Planner Stifled My Journaling Habit?

I’ve been a fairly consistent journal-keeper since high school (oh, those angsty poems!), but over the past few years that habit has fallen to the wayside. My present journal was, if I remember right, started two years ago! It’s a 5-subject notebook, and I’m not even half-way through it. That’s not normal. Last week IContinue reading “Has Using a Planner Stifled My Journaling Habit?”

Selling My Prized Possession

Because I’m in a pretty big financial “Oh, shit!” situation right now. It’s one of the limited collector’s edition of Ciro Marchetti’s Gilded Reverie Lenormand that was self-published before US Games mass market edition. It was given to me a few years ago, and I’ve been too afraid to use it (it was slightly usedContinue reading “Selling My Prized Possession”

Revisiting the Bullet Journal

A year or so ago, I tried out bullet journaling (bujo for short), but it was too chaotic, disorganized and repetitive, so I went back to my Filofax.

More than anything else,Continue reading “From Bullet Journal to Filofax”

Happy September!!!!!!

Oh, thank goodness August is over! I really had days wherein I wasn’t sure I was going to make it through the month, and the last few days seemed to drag, as if teasing me with the relief that is to come but was still just out of reach. I know many are sad aboutContinue reading “Happy September!!!!!!”

It’s Time for a Filofax Break

I’ve been using a Filofax ever since I stumbled across the wide world of internet Filofax lovers, and it’s been a love – hate relationship from the get-go. First, I ordered what I thought was a personal size Metropol, only to discover that the seller was wrong and it was actually a pocket size. AboutContinue reading “It’s Time for a Filofax Break”
