This episode topic probably isn’t a surprise to anyone as I’ve been super into the 2022 Hobonichi release! I looked back and the 9th order I’ve placed from the Hobonichi store — my very first was in the spring of 2014, and I haven’t missed a release since.
Though the pandemic definitely had me foray into about 334 other planners, I do have deep love for the Hobonichi product line, the store, their design elements, and more. So this episode is dedicated to Hobonchi info, with a sneak peak at my favorites in the 2022 release.
Link to the store is here! On the top left, you can toggle between English and Japanese. And on the top right, you can choose your currency! I don’t think this was always an option, and I am actually used to looking at a Hobonichi price points in yen. But great that they have this option – I’ll use it next year!
Error note: I went through the various options for purchase, including the A6 English, A6 Original/Avec, A5 Cousin/Cousin Avec, and the Weeks. I forgot the relatively newish Day-Free! The Day-Free contains monthly layouts and then blank (grid) pages, without specified dates at the top. This is the bullet journalist’s answer to Hobonichi (if said bullet journalist can tolerate Tomoe River Paper).
It is a long weekend over here. I have been spending it with the kids. It has been a bit of a lonely + depressing slog at times, and not as bad at others. That said, I am finding myself really needing some positive things to look forward to. I’m feeling kind of sad and empty and I think it’s just . . . not enough positive things on the horizon. I know in these ‘uncertain times’ we can’t plan too much, but I need more than I currently have. Trying to work on this.
I am on call starting tomorrow for the next week so . . . I guess that will be a distraction, if nothing else. I really want to work on staying positive and calm (a lifelong project) so wish me luck.
