See part one here.
And then there was YouTube. Ellie had made mention in another post of the BuJo, that there was a Facebook community dedicated to the BuJo and other style planners as well as videos on YouTube. Why, oh why did she point the way to that particular rabbit hole? The shiny was blinding! I still can’t go more than a few hours without checking out one or four videos.
The video posted at the end of Part 1 was just the tip of the iceberg. There are thousands. And I watched only a few before my ADOSS kicked in.
I switched to a Moleskine journal (see that post here – note how simple those first embellishments looked). Most of the journals on YouTube are these pristine, neatly laid out, carefully designed artistic wonders. But because I have ADOSS, one too many ideas catch my attention and I want to try them ALL. Toss in my outside the lines, bass-ackwards approach to life and what you end up with is this…
A hodge-podge of my spin on BuJo techniques, layouts, and methodology. While my monthly calendars – that I produce in Publisher – are the same for June, July, August, and September, my weekly and daily layouts change considerably from month to month.
As I mention in my Moleskine BuJo intro post, I’d just joined the Nerd Fitness Academy so I was all about being able to incorporate my new fitness habits into my BuJo so I made a tracker to use for the month of July. Mind you, it was early June. I’m sure that at this point it’s no surprise that I changed my mind about using it just a day or so before July was about to start.
You can guess where this is going right? I’ll give you a hint…
…Part three coming soon
