My greatest discovery so far, this year has to be the bullet journal.
Towards the end of last year I did what I always do and thoroughly conducted researched to find the perfect diary. I called myself a diary snob because nothing conventional I found in the shops satisfied exactly what I wanted or needed in a diary. I made some really good discoveries (like The Happy Planner) and found some excellent resources for goal setting (Passion Planner)! At the end of my investigation I declared myself a Moleskine virgin and decided to opt for their Peanuts diary.
By the time, I was ready to purchase the said Peanut diary, they were pretty much sold out. I was devastated and thought I would have to settle for a conventional diary. Thankfully I decided to browse the offerings per foot, in the shops and eventually I found a diary that matched my theme for the year!

My Bullet Journal
I haven’t posted about my bullet journal or bujo for short, mainly because I was still trying to find my grove! But after seven months, I am sure it is about time I share a bit of it right here.
I’ve used the bullet principle at work and at home and it has really made a difference in my day to day tasks. For some reason, when I write something down, I tend to follow through on the task, some days go by and I have (should have and hadn’t) written anything down and that is okay.
The system is forgiving – note my failed tracker. The system allows me to try something new every day. Really, it suits my personality!
For my second Bujo, I bought a blank visual art diary from my local art store. Partly because I want to try and finish my second journal by the end of the year, partly because I want to try the blank pages before I purchased a dotted journal for the new year.
