List maker, List maker… tell me your dreams. Bullet Journal

Being born in August makes me a Virgo, and according to the stars it makes me: Virgos are always paying attention to the smallest details and their deep sense of humanity makes them one of the most careful signs of the zodiac. Their methodical approach to life ensures that nothing is left to chance, and although they are often tender, their heart might be closed for the outer world.

From a very young age I chose books and pens over any other toys.  And to this day I will rather be hanging around in the stationary shop than in the clothing and shoe shops. The attention to detail part only come in to play in my photography.  In general I am more introverted without my camera than most.  I love being by myself, but I love people too.  So writing this blog is one of the ways I try and put myself out there. Journaling is used to organise all the stuff in my head that I don’t necessarily want to share with someone else.

And since I left school I bought a new year planner/ diary every year and it never really felt like home…

So when I learned about the bullet journal on youtube, I was hooked.  After 2 months mine is not at clean and cute as the ones I’ve seen, but it is so totally me and really changed the way I organise stuff in my life.  I write, paint, draw, make a list for everything and glue stuff in.

I’m already planning on my next journal that most probably will be a DIY Travelers Journal. I have this very old leather cover my father made me and I would love to repurpose it into something I can use on a daily basis. If you are not familiar with the Travelers Journal Craze think Bullet Journal / Scrapbook and Diary on steroids.  Maybe I’ll do a “page trough” when I have it finished and this could be my first Youtube video on my channel.

If you haven’t tried it have al look at the video on the journal that started it all.
