With a bullet

    The advent of 2018 spurred me to keep a bullet journal.

Basically, a bullet journal is a notebook in which you organize your life. It employs a series of basic symbols that are applied to tasks/notes/et cetera, including the simple dot/bullet that indicates a to-do. The basics of bullet journaling are laid out here.

I’ve taken up this practice because I want to spend less time looking at screens, and because there’s deep satisfaction in having a physical object that tells the tale of your days. Who wants to print the archives of their Google Keep account for posterity?

Naturally, bullet journals appeal to crafty and arty types, the folks who like to doodle and make scrapbooks. The format is loose enough to encompass just about anything a person can create with a pen. Wish I had the skill to make mine prettier. (Bulleted) note to self: sign up for drawing class…

If I stick with this practice, maybe I can teach it in the makerspace. It would be amusing to invite people into the digital lab to learn this analog system.
