Q & A a Day
365 Questions: 5 Years: 1, 825 Answers
For several years now, I have been keeping, what in the old days would be called a diary. Today? I don't think we call it that, but that is what it is and I can't think right now what else it is called. If you do it online, there's a site called 280daily.com that you go to to talk about your day. I'm in my third year of this and it is so interesting to look back and see what you did the years before.
So, when I saw this book available for review, it totally piqued my interest. This takes the 5 year diary on a different journey. There is a page for each day of the year and at the top of the page is a question. Each year on the same day you answer the same question, but the interesting thing will be--how will you answer it each year? Will it be a different answer? The same answer? How will it reflect how you have changed from one year to the next?
I'm thinking there will likely be room to record other significant details about the day if you want to as well. Some of the questions may not apply to me and so I can skip them or address someting completely different, but from what I saw a lot of them will be applicable. Let me give you a few examples:
January 1: What is your mission?
January 12: What's your favorite accessory?
January 17: What's the oldest hing you're wearing today?
February 11: How did you get to work today?
February 23: What's the most embarrassing purchase on a recent credit card statement?
April 12: Write down a new fact you recently learned
June 8: What makes you miserable?
July 27: What can you smell right now?
August 24: Write your recipe for creativity
December 30: List what you've eaten for the past week
December 31: What is your most cherished memory of this year?
My biggest dilemma will be deciding if I should just open the book and start now or wait until at least the beginning of a month, if not a year to start. I'm thinking I might be brave and just start because there are some big things hopefully happening this month and it might be nice to have the perspective on there to follow up on in the next five years.
I'm very excited about this book: Oh by the way? It's a nice hardcover book with glittery gold edges so it feels fancy and sophisticated and the pages do that little creaky thing when you open them the first time. Definitely a keeper.
