• Hi - if you have tried to donate and found that it hasn't worked please can you hit me up in PM? (Freya) I am trying to figure out with paypal what the issue is and they are asking for more data. It doesn't seem to be affecting everyone. Thank you so much :)
  • Hi - It is possible that I have figured out part of the problem with the donations. I believe that if you try to use paypal balance or your debit/credit card that should work now. Bank transfer still seems glitchy. If you try with a card and it fails please can you let me know? Fingers crossed that part is resolved though. Thanks so much for the support - Freya

Does anyone else use a bullet journal?

I started one this week and I’m obsessed.

In case anyone doesn’t know what it is, I’ll throw some links down at the bottom of this post cause it’s AMAZING.

I’m using mine as a planner, a journal, as well as a tracker for things like shows or movies I want to watch, books I want to read, my period, my mood, etc. As well as pages like “Today I’m grateful for”, or positive affirmations.

I’m very excited about it and I’m interested to see what it does for my mental health.

I had one last year but it was horrible for my perfectionism (just thinking about it makes me uncomfortable). I cannot do it if it doesn't look perfect and if I'm not consistent. Some weeks I wanted to draw a lot, while others I didn't have the time at all even to write all my appointments. So I stopped in April/May and this year I bought myself a normal agenda. I'm not saying I won't go back to it one day when my depression is better though... I still find the concept amazing :)

I think it definitely works better for some people than others. I’m a perfectionist too but am learning to fight the thoughts of, “Its not good enough” or “It’s not pretty enough” or whatever. So far I’ve been keeping up. I want to add more collections tho so we’ll see if I get anxious about it or not

at least that's what I keep telling myself!

Thanks for posting about it @CBunny9, I'd never heard of it and it sounds like a good way to keep on top of things. I'd need to convert it to an online thing as I'm not one for writing things by hand. I use OneNote a lot to try and keep things organised, might try and apply some of the principals to that.

Well I officially started mine but it’s sloppy as hell and in a lined note book. It is a spaceship notebook though so that’s rad. I really enjoy it so far. What kinds of collections do you have in yours?

My bullet journal is literally the thing that helps with my anxiety. I'll make sure to write everything in there and use a digital calendar for appointments and places I need to go. I can't imagine not bullet journaling. Not to mention, it's so relaxing making all the spreads.

Sorry to bother again but would anyone want a bullet journal thread where we share ideas and pictures and discuss our bullet journals? I understand if no one else would find this interesting but I’m kind of proud of mine and I want to talk about it and share ideas but no one around me knows what a bullet journal is *dunno

Sorry if this is a really bad idea, I’m just tired and bored and current working on it so I thought I’d ask *dunno ah

I think it's a great idea! Bullet journaling got some of us is more than just pretty aesthetic and staying organized. Like for me, I cling to that and calendars to eliviate anxiety. So certainly make it if you want!
