For this post I chose to share something I work with. This is my bullet journal. I started it when I moved to Arizona in August 2019, it started as a practice journal because I was working on my masters in Oboe performance and wanted something physical to track what I was working on. Through the pandemic it evolved into a home for all of my ideas.
It is the first place that I started collaging, where I created my first vision board, where I found a way to track my life. It is the first time that I learned how messy projects are and allowed myself to mess up. It houses my first notes about arts research and mind maps of where projects can go. It is a sketchbook, where I’ve drawn out logos and doodles. It catalogs so many to-do lists over the last three years. It is a journal, it is a planner, it is a calendar, it is a canvas. As I have evolved as a person this journal has been with me every step of the way and as I look back at the pages I can track how my interaction with the arts has changed.
Below are some of my favorite pages as well as examples of how the journal has changed.
