Hello and welcome to my rather “better late than never” 5 year journal update!
Let me catch you up on speed with what a five year journal is – it’s basically a book with 365 questions , for which you answer one question a day for a period of five years. There is of course a bonus question to be answered on a leap day!
I found this project interesting and decided to try it out. You can buy ready made diaries or books with the questions but I decided to make my own by writing in the questions in a good quality notebook that I went and got myself.
The first phase of this project is in 2020 and if all goes well by 2024 December I should be concluding it! I intend to post about it every month until it’s end to take a look at the questions and my responses and how much things have changed over the period of five years.
As always I have taken the questions from Pinterest as well, there are many compilations that you can refer and use for this!
And what are the questions that interest me this month? Well-
The first question was definitely one that took me some time to answer. A lot of the questions that are to be answered are purely dependent on what happened on that specific day, but there are a lot of questions such as this, that come up and make you think back a lot. And this one happens to be one of those. In fact question 1 through 6 can be considered to come under that category.
I’m also very interested in what cuisine I liked so far – I’ve recently taken up an interest in cooking – due to the lockdown forcing us to be creative with our food from home.
I’m also interested in the item that accompanies me the most other than my clothes and of course my health – for which I hope for the most positive response – considering the fact I don’t have that many healthy practices 😅!
