One of the habits that I am most glad to have started last year was buying a hobonichi techo, a fancy planner from Japan. There is a whole community online devoted to people drawing and writing in their hobonichi, using the book to manage their lives but also as a means of recording their lived experiences. Because of the little events like finishing my master’s degree and buying a house, I didn’t manage to fill every page for 2015 but looking at my hobonichi brings me right back to each of those days that I did write something. I am looking forward to another year experienced and recorded.
(For the curious, I do frequently post pages on tumblr.)
