16 Personalities

OK, so this came in my newsletter based on my Defender personality. I’m gonna take a break from book-blogging and get to know myself better:

Currently Reading: Dot Journaling

Dot Journaling: A Practical Guide by Rachel Wilkerson Miller

I succumbed. Been on the fence for quite sometime. As in bullet journaling, not the book.

I keep a journal (journals, over the years. Few were dotted ones, before “bujo” got popular. I bought it because it was on sale), currently an orange Moleskine and a big spiral “Nickelodeon” notebook (I’ll post it next time), but it’s something I write in full sentences, with minimal doodles here and there. Apparently you’re not supposed to do too much of that (writing in long form) when  it comes to dot/bullet journals.

So I stumbled upon, flipped, and skimmed the book at the bookstore today. The ideas were brilliant. I then joined a few Facebook groups for more (used to be IG, but I don’t do much IG nowdays) inspiration and I’m helplessly hooked – though I know not for long, because, well, I’m 37 – and I have had a few things figured out, and one of them is my journaling style and habit. Going full-on bujo won’t be possible, but it’s worth the occasional sin.

Back to the book. Even though it would be nicer to read and reference it in physical form, I decided I didn’t want to carry too many things around (I already have a journal and a Kindle in my bag) so digital it is.

Do you do bullet journals? I’m curious. Show me.
