Over the past few weeks, I got into journaling, specifically bullet journaling. I started drawing, lettering and always seemed to be watching bullet journal videos on Youtube. I created a reading journal to document my reading journey. I may not the best at it, but there is just something calming about doing it and in a few years, it will be interesting looking back.
One night last week, I felt a bit down about myself with constantly being rejected and decided I wanted to create a new journal to document my job search journey. So I ended up ordering a notebook at 3am. Here’s the thing, when an idea pops into my head and it refuses to leave, I will go after it. Also I tend to make spontaneous purchases when I am sad.
But the more that I thought about it, I realized I wanted to have a journal documenting this new-grad time, not only the jobs, so that in a few years I could look back on it. Also, I wanted a reason to draw because I enjoyed it. I wanted to track finances, things I am grateful for, stories about my dog, grad school applications [when that happens], music that I am enjoying, tv shows. So thats what I did.
All I used were:
- Cleverfox Dotted Journal 2.0
- Sakura Pigma Micron Pens
- White gel ink pen [white detail]
- Crayola supertips [here and there]
For October I wanted to have a masquerade mask theme because it is classy and beautiful. The problem was I could not get ideas because it was not a popular theme. So I improvised using the little that I had.
And that’s it. I am proud of it and can’t wait to start using it. Now I am wondering whether or not I should start sharing it though I doubt anyone cares.
