In a few weeks, I will need to stop dithering and make a decision: will I use an analog or digital planner for 2019? When I started my current job at the library, I had a Bullet Journal system in place, which satisfied my two primary drives: recording notes and ideas by hand, because IContinue reading “Analog or digital planning for 2019?”
I’ve introduced FunkyPlaid to “Detectorists” and I’m enjoying it even more the second time around. Writing from: my study in Portland, Oregon. Listening to: that great theme song again.
I’m experimenting with some additions to my Bullet Journal, some functional and some just for fun.

So far, I’m doing pretty well. (But let’s notContinue reading “Days 189-207 of Project 365: Sleep deprivation.”
