Q&A a Day: Five-Year Journal

#UD8132     $16.99

What song is stuck in your head? What are you looking forward to? What makes "you" you? Who is the craziest person in your life? What word did you overuse today? What was your prevailing emotion of the day? What's the last dream you remember? Who is your nemesis? What new activity have you tried? Who would play you in a movie about your life? What is your motto? If you were a literary character, who would you be? In three words, describe your love life. Where do you find joy?

The Q&A a Day Journal asks you one question a day (see the examples above), and then asks it again exactly one year later, for five years. Just jot down your daily response and, half a decade later, you'll have a fascinating chronicle of "you" - the changes, the constants, the big events, the little nothings. What a unique and clever diary! See Q&A a Day for Kids here.

            What an simple, easy way to capture yourself! Every day, for 5 years. I work 13 hour days and it is a delight to stop and answer a question that reveals me, for myself or others later. Shortly after starting mine, I bought 4 more for my daughters and the men they love. They're thrilled. A great gift for you or anyone!

                I'm a critter of extremes, sometimes making short lists, sometimes writing pages and pages. This compact volume helps me to write some notation every day, sparking longer entries in a personal journal, encouraging me to write at least something every day. Wonderful way to see your changes in focus across time.

                    Comments about Bas Bleu Q&A a Day: Five-Year Journal:

                    I am finding this product to be thought provoking. Since it is, in essence, a 5 year daily diary of personal answers to the question of the day, I do fill in the small amount of space allowed daily. (I would be very interested in knowing what method, if any, was used in determining the question of the day.) While I usually am able to put down my response in the space allowed, I sometimes wish for another line or two. I think about what I am going to say before beginning to write, but can not always complete what I wish to enter in the space allowed. However, I do realize with the objective of getting 5 years' worth of answers on a single page, space is at a premium. I have been doing this for two months now, and I look forward to the question that will be asked each day. A thought provoking item indeed, and one I am enjoying very much. I can't wait until a year is up, and I start the second one with comparisons of what has gone before.

                        At last! No more journaling guilt! This is the daily record that will finally get you recording daily. I love the Q&A format -- so easily keeps me on track to write just a wee bit every day. Now, instead of a huge blank page facing me each night, I need only gather enough strength and thought to fill in a few short lines about an already-decided topic. I am really looking forward to seeing the flow of answers over the span of five years. What a cool concept! I bought my daughter the kids' version, and she loves filling hers in each day, too.

                              I was just told that the recipient of this journal is really enjoying writing in it each day. She can't wait for 2019 so she can look back at what she is writing today. It seems to be breeding optimism for the future. Great idea!

                                Purchased the QnA journal for holiday gifts and liked them so much that I purchased one for myself. Quality is excellent; sturdy, easy to write on. Prompts are original and will be wonderful for reflection throughout the year and looking back. Perfect gifts any time of the year, for travelers, students, new parents, old grandparents. Anyone who appreciates the written word will enjoy this journal.
