98 Days till 2017

Wow! I cannot believe we have only 98 days until the end of the year. It doesn’t feel like it has been that long since this year made it’s grand entrance. I am not going to begin reminiscing about 2016, I will save that for December but I am going to start looking towards 2017.

There are so many places I want to go and things I want to do, that I need to start preparing for them now. I do not expect to do everything in 2017 but I want to do something. One way I am going to start doing this is by keeping a “Bullet Journal”. if you have no idea what a Bullet Journal is or a “BUJO” as it is sometimes referred <<< Click Here>>> or search Pinterest. There are thousands of examples on Pinterest.

I have been reading up on them now for the past few months and I really like this idea. I have been doing something similar to this for a few years just not as organised.There are many ways of keeping a Bullet Journal, whether it is a note book or sketch book. You can by specific organisers, filofax or diaries. So, I have decided I am going to start with an A5 Ring Binder. It is not quite a conventional Bullet Journal but I think it is going to suit my needs better. This is because I feel this will be more practical for me. I love notebooks but I always get distracted by them. I fill half of it up and by a new one and want to start writing in that. Then I start jotting down writing ideas, brain storming, useful information and before I know my journal has got lost.

Not sure whose Bullet Journal this is but I really like it. 

In the run up to 2017, in the 98 days we have left. I will be preparing my version of a Bullet Journal. This will hopefully give me a use for all the stationery I keep buying and also an outlet for my excessive need to design things on Word and Photoshop.
