Q&A a Day by Potter Style
“This journal was created to help you make a time capsule of the next five years of your life in the simplest way possible. You can start at any point in the year. Simply turn to today’s date and take a few moments to answer the question at the top of the page (or don’t answer it; this is your journal). When you finish the year, move on to the next section. As the years go by, you’ll notice how your answers evolve.”
I love these kinds of journals that offer up prompts to get you thinking and/or get your creative juices flowing. Q&A a Day takes a very simple approach to this. Each page has sections for five years worth of answers (you write in the year yourself for each section) below one question at the top of each page. The questions range from very simple things like “What was the last TV show you watched?” to more thought provoking questions like “Are you hesitating?“.
The book itself is also quite simple in appearance. The color and texture of the cover give the appearance of a book covered with a paper bag. (Am I showing my age, remembering when this was required for school books?) The pages are gilded with gold, something I LOVE! It adds a little elegance to the otherwise simple little book.
It is a bit on the small side. It measures 4.25 by 6.25 inches. I do wish it were a little bigger to give you a bit more space to write in your answers to the more thought provoking questions. There really is not room for any in-depth, wordy answers.
Overall I really like this journal and am looking forward to working on it over the next five years. I think this could be a good gift for young teens who always think the here and now is how things will always be, so they can see for themselves how things change in time as they work their way through the journal over the years. Anyone of any age who likes to keep journals would likely enjoy this one.
