My spring semester is in full swing now, this is my third week of classes! With that being said, I’m doing my best to stay on top of my assignments and overall, life. It seemed like I could never get into planning out my days, I would forget assignments and things that I signed up for. But ever since I discovered ‘bullet journaling’ I’ve completely turned that around!
If you haven’t heard of bullet journaling, you can read up on it here. Basically what you do is purchase your own moleskin-type notebook and go to town. It’s completely customizable for your own life! I highly recommend looking up bullet journaling on YouTube, I got completely hooked after watching people talk about theirs!
The first step to the bullet journal, or bujo for short, system is creating a key. This notebook is a collaboration with bullet journal, but I opted out of their traditional key. I like using boxes rather than dots! I also went ahead and put a color code for all of the things that I would be putting on my bullet journal. In case you’re wondering, these are the pens I use!
When I started this bullet journal for 2017, I knew I wanted to incorporate a content calendar type of section for blogging. I got this idea straight from Lily Pebbles’s video on her own bullet journal. I won’t go too in depth with this just because Lily explains it in her video, and you can see from the photographs!
With my actual weekly layout, I like to keep it as simple as I can. I basically just divided each page up into three sections and drew arrows for the dates! I don’t want to spend too much time making my layouts, so the most I’ll do (for the moment) is coloring in the flags and such. I’m really enjoying the slight pop of color!
There isn’t really much else that I do when it comes to my bullet journal. If you want to see a beautiful one, my friend Jenna does a great job of decorating hers! You can see how she’s decorating her 2017 bujo here. If you’re looking for another video for bullet journaling, my friend Nicole also made a video showing how she uses hers!
How are you staying organized? Do you use the bullet journal method, or an actual agenda?
