(Bullet) Journaling/ Planners and Diaries Thread Anonymous 105685

Post about your journals and journal inspirations here!

Some icebreakers:
- What made you start?
- What do you usually use your journal for? creative writing? expressing thoughts? organising? making collages/moodboards?
- What kind of notebook do you write in?
- Do you do daily logs, weekly logs, monthly logs?
- Do you mainly use your journal for improving organisation or personal expression? or both?
- Where do you get your journals?
- How often do you write?
- Do you have a preference with what you write with (favourite pens/stationary)?
- Do you prefer keeping your journal minimalist, or do you prefer decorating or drawing in your journal?
- If you decorate your journal/planner/diary, what themes do you normally go for? and what do you usually use to decorate (gel pens, wasabi tape, markers)
- Any favourite stores/companies to get all your journals and journaling goodies from?

>What made you start?
I wanted to understand myself better and just be able to vent because I lacked anyone to talk to. Work out my issued basically.
>What do you usually use your journal for? creative writing? expressing thoughts? organising? making collages/moodboards?
Expressing my thoughts and writing about my day
>What kind of notebook do you write in?
I usually buy 200 page 5 subject spiral notebooks with pockets. I keep pictures and drafts for letters in the pockets, stamps, drawings, etc. Its nice and practical, but sometimes I press plants in books (I find a lot of 4/5 leaf clovers) and tape them to the cover.
>Do you do daily logs, weekly logs, monthly logs?
Daily, usually an hour or 2 a day
>Do you mainly use your journal for improving organisation or personal expression? or both?
Improving
>Ehere do you get your journals?
Drugstore
>How often do you write?
Daily
>Do you have a preference with what you write with (favourite pens/stationary)?
I like getting fine point skilcraft black pen sticks. They're my favorite.
>Do you prefer keeping your journal minimalist, or do you prefer decorating or drawing in your journal?
I decorate the cover, but I keep the pages for writing. I doodle in the margins a lot though.
>If you decorate your journal/planner/diary, what themes do you normally go for? and what do you usually use to decorate (gel pens, wasabi tape, markers)
Nail polish, plants, sometimes pictures
>Any favourite stores/companies to get all your journals and journaling goodies from?
Not in particular, just what's most accessible, and whatever will last me the longest. I go through journals fast, 2 months to fill up a big 200 page 5 subject book is what it usually takes.

I spend so much damn time on this I've contemplated publishing some of it one day on leanpub under a fake name and just changing up the details. I used to post my enteries online but stopped in favor of traditional diary. People enjoyed reading them, it was nice that somebody got something out of them.
Anything to justify the insane amount of time I spend on writing.

This seems more like a /feels/ post tbh

>What made you start?

Needing to vent my feelings and to have a reference to my past self and memorize experiences I liked .I have a lot of diaries and journals. I have around 6 real ones (I started the first one when I was 11, and after a 4 year old break continued writing diaries). And about 8 digital ones, first 3 of which were lost due to my pc being a retard. I miss those the most, it's the most important timeline for me
>What do you usually use your journal for? creative writing? expressing thoughts? organising? making collages/moodboards?
My current physical journal/diary I use mostly for writing stories based on my life (like alternate universes), venting about certain annoying individuals and rambling about self improvement and self care. My digital ones are for my limerence, my encounters/memories (those are the words I use when referring to meeting people worthy of remembering them), a lot of times I ramble paragraphs upon paragraphs about the same topic, mostly about my limerence lmao. Also one is dedicated to documenting my dreams.
>What kind of notebook do you write in?
The ones that I find aesthetically pleasing the most, when I'l have my own money I'll order some online. The digital ones are in microsoft word.
>Do you do daily logs, weekly logs, monthly logs?
I don't have a schedule, I just do in accordance to what is happening to me. Interesting dream? Write in dream logging diary. Need to write down self care tips? Physical diary, the list goes on.
>Do you mainly use your journal for improving organisation or personal expression? or both?
well, I almost never think about improving my organization. In fact, diaries are the most organized thing in my personal space rn.
>Where do you get your journals?
Stationery shops…? idk what they're called in english.
>How often do you write?
Depends whats going on in my life. I havent wrote in months, i think. I hit a plateau because nothing interesting is going on right now, not even dreams. I have 1 thng I want to write about though but I'm procrastinating.
>Do you have a preference with what you write with (favourite pens/stationary)?
I like to write with thin (but not extremely thin) dark blue pens. I hate the thick ones
>Do you prefer keeping your journal minimalist, or do you prefer decorating or drawing in your journal?
I used to draw in my journals a lot. I still love the 2 notebooks I taped together when i was 11, I glued my drawings and quotes inside it was so edgy. Now I just write, with short comics/illustrations to laugh at when I reread. Still remember that caricature did of myself wen I was at my lowest.
>If you decorate your journal/planner/diary, what themes do you normally go for? and what do you usually use to decorate (gel pens, wasabi tape, markers)
I just drew with the same pen I was writing with
>Any favourite stores/companies to get all your journals and journaling goodies from?
No, I couldn't care any less tbh. As long as it does the job and the notebook is comfortable and pretty.

This is what my current notebook looks like. Nowhere near as aesthetically pleasing as any of the pinterest pictures but I like how shiny it is. My handwriting is pretty wonky and hard to read it's not english btw so don't even try to decrypt lol for other people but I consider that a god thing. I cram as much text into them as possible, as I said, no decorating.

Lol, keep trying to label everything with some unnecessary psychiatric term instead of just accepting people are different and passionate about different things.

I'm honestly interested in reading your journals, just to know what you write about for 2 hours every day.

This is so cute! I remembered your post when I was taking a walk yesterday and found a few Ginko leaves. So I took them with me and they're drying right now, I'm also going to tape them on my journal's cover.

Anonymous 106446

2-3 journals a month depending on the size and how much i can write

i don't talk about my writing until its where i want it and its done. currently im really annoyed at all of it. I'm sick of this and I want to throw my stuff at the wall. This seems like a good place to vent.

Usually this kinda thing doesn't last long but I'm sooo tired of writing about this present topic I just want it to be done for gods sake.
