Column: Diary

For several years now, it has been happening to me that I have not been able to find the right diary for myself and, especially for business matters.

Is it really so weird that I haven’t found the right one in the flood of all sorts yet? I may be too demanding, but all possible meters of drinking water and the like do not even happen to replace what I really need.

"Make it yourself!" A statement heard many times, which of course is not completely irrelevant.

And I got it. For a few years, I even drew myself, adding tables, pages, monthly, weekly, and daily layouts. I was looking for solutions that would suit me and everyone who reviews new diaries every year. And interestingly - there are more of them every year. They grow like mushrooms after rain.

So far I have not found the one I would say - this is it! Or rather, I almost did, but unfortunately it was only released in a one-year version. And so I am again at the beginning of the search for the perfect one.

What bothers me most about all of them is that they are more or less all the same, made on the principle of foreign diaries that shine out and promise omnipotence, and in the end the interior is the same as something I saw ten years ago in foreign online stores. And even then the layout didn’t suit me, so how would I do now.

Last year, I took the time to design it in Publisher, but in the end I found that I was missing a few things that I couldn't add - without being seen from afar, so recklessly from the beginning.

I drew a few basic pages this year, but I made things so complicated that I almost graduated in printing. It’s nice, I admit, but without good visuals it’s almost impossible to print for a whole year.

And what now?

Yeah, nothing. I will test my spatial performances and hope for the best. Maybe I even succeed. I am glad that I recently received a daily planner as a gift, which I will be happy to use, because I am sure that I have not (yet) found the right way to prepare an ideal diary.

Otherwise, the meaning of art is creation, right?

Artistic greeting. Mateja Hocevar
