This is going to be a brief rundown of just my planning and poem for the week, as I somehow managed to fall down some stairs (stone cold sober, not on my phone) and currently have my arm in a sling.
This is going to be the first week that I use my bullet journal alone for my school organisation, so this week has more space for homework tasks than for actual events (because, let’s be real, my school doesn’t allow us to have a life outside it).
I also found last week that it was tedious carrying around a school-issued diary and my journal, hence my decision to transition to just the journal – it allows more personalisation and space manipulation, so I can fit more useful information about tasks in.
This week’s poem is “I do not know who I am”, a critique of the culture that tells children and adolescents that they are required to know who they are at a young age, and have a plan for where they’re going in life. The requirement is not that you know who you are, exactly, because that will change as you learn and grow and live. All you need to know is what you believe in; what you will fight for, stand for, live for, die for. And it will change – but you must learn to hold yourself to consistent values before you can learn that they will change as you do.
A quick favour: if you liked this post, please share this! You may not think so, but I’m just starting out and every little helps! I am keeping the Skull Sessions as a staple, so if you did like it, please drop in next week to see more of this content.
Look to the present with the future in mind, and to the future with the past in mind.
What is a skull session? A skull session is a meeting for discussion and sharing information and ideas, which is a pretty cool way to sum up what I’m trying to achieve (yeah, yeah, my emo teen is coming out I know).
