When it comes to the Bullet Journal are you a Traditionalist or a Customiser?
I’m a little of both. I like a little colour for finding what I need at a glance. And I like the 21st century digital option of deleting and rewriting notes like I can by typing on my iPhone, but obviously, in an analogue format.
My brain often runs faster than my hand can write manually. Too many years of typing what I want to say… Consequently my spelling, grammar and handwriting in general can be truly appalling! (at 00:15 I leave the ‘P’ out of A-P-R-I-L! sigh). I Bullet Journal because, even though typing for me is more efficient (speed, spell check etc), I retain more info if I make notes the old fashioned way: pen to paper.
Enter Pilot Frixion Erasable Pens and Highlighters. What a life saver!
Make a mistake? Erase it and and keep going like it never happened!
Change your mind on your page layout? You don’t have to wait another month for a second attempt, you can make your improvements now.
Need to move an appointment? Don’t scratch it out (I hate how that looks), erase it and move it to a new date.
But what if you like to colour code your tasks and reminders like I do? If you go over an erasable pen with a regular highlighter its no longer erasable…
WELL, Pilot make erasable highlighters too! Bloody genius.
A closer look at these pens and highlighters is on its way, in the meantime, enjoy the video.
[Side note: I film all my YT videos on my iPhone. Partly because its become an essential tool in my every day life and now a human/digital hybrid (cyborg?) extension of my arm. But, also, when viewed on a mobile device like so many people do these days, when you look down into your phone, your view is exactly my view. You become the one sitting at my desk, eating my cookie and experiencing things first hand.]
