I don’t know about you, but I have a ton of TV shows that I am interested in. There are shows that I am currently watching, want to watch soon, or want to watch again one day. I like to keep a running list of all these shows for quick reference. Why, do you ask?
There are many times in my life when I have reached the end of a show and asked “What next?”. I don’t have cable, so I can’t just flip through channels. Besides, I don’t like that kind of watching experience, anyway. I like to watch my content with purpose, not aimless boredom. If you want to cut the cord, having a streaming stick is great because it is less expensive than cable and it lets you get more of the content you want. I use the Amazon Fire TV Stick to access many of my shows, and it’s great! I only use it to watch TV, but I know you can use it for a ton of other things, like gaming and music. It even comes with a remote! And you get a bunch of free content if you are an Amazon Prime Member (get a 30 day free trial here), which is always excellent.
Of course, when I’m looking for a new show, I could flip through Netflix until I find something I want to begin. But I’m a little picky, and starting a new show is a real commitment if I end up liking it. I like to have at least one friend recommend a show before I’ll watch it. The bullet journal is great to use to track your TV shows. If you have it on you all the time (which I do), then it’s easy to jot down some obscure series for later. This helps me jump right into the next thing without falling into a “showhole”. This also keeps me from rounding back on an old show and watching it for months because I didn’t know what else to do. While I love going back and watching old shows, I prefer to do it as a choice rather than as a last resort.
Having a list written down also reminds me to keep up with new seasons of shows that I love, like Game of Thrones. Of course, I’m absolutely losing my mind over the new season that’s starting tonight. It’s probably my favorite show ever. I actually only jumped on the bandwagon around the end of season four, but I have ravenously consumed every book, show, and fan theory since then. I started watching it because so many people recommended it that I finally broke down and saw the first episode.
If you have somehow held out and not seen Game of Thrones yet, I would wholeheartedly recommend this series. If you have HBO, you have access to the wonderful world of Westeros. If not, you can find any of the 5 seasons online here. You sweet summer child, you.
Having lists to keep track of little details will help save you a lot of trouble. The same system is great for restaurants to try, books to read, movies to watch, or music to listen to. No matter what, the bullet journal has your back so you don’t have to constantly keep track of all those tidbits that would otherwise take up room in your noggin. I’m telling ya, the bullet journal is the Swiss army knife of the organizational world!
