Hobonichi Flip Through Catch-Up Video: May – August 2017

This year I started using the Hobonichi Techo planner for the first time, and to motivate myself to keep up with it I declared that I would post a video every month of my planner pages. There’s no better way to make yourself do something than to declare to the world that you’re doing it!

Well, once ~thesis crunch~ was in full swing, I found that I simply didn’t have the capacity to stick with my promise, and ended up missing a couple of months of Hobonichi Flip Through videos. But now that I’ve had time to catch up on some entries, I’m fulfilling my promise by resuming my Hobonichi videos!

If you find yourself interested in journaling but intimidated at the thought of filling it out every day, this video is for you. I went into my video hiatus with the full intention of catching up so that every single page I missed was completely filled out… But that definitely didn’t happen. 5 years ago I might’ve scrapped the whole thing after a single missed day! But a few blank pages shouldn’t detract from the pages I have filled out, so I’m not going to give up!

Do you find yourself with missed days/blank pages in your journals? Let me know I’m not alone!

About Anne Lee

Also known as apricotsushi. Anne can be written with the kanji for apricot (杏), and sushi was the most quintessentially Japanese thing I could think of when I was 13, resulting in my goofy, albeit memorable, nickname.
