So I’ve wanted to do a blog pist about my Bullet Journal for a while now, so I thought why not kick off (my) blogtember with my journal post?!
A friend of mine inspired me to take up Bullet Jounraling when she would carry hers around with her at uni. It looked absolutely beautiful and so much fun, so I decided to let her talk me into it. I didn’t know much about ‘Bu-Jo’ing so I joined the Facebook group, which still gives me so much inspo now.
So what is a Bullet Journal? Well it can be whatever you want it to be! There are no rules. You can use your journal as a tracker, a diary or a doodle book. I generally use mine for life admin, like writing in dates I need to remember and trying to originate myself better (which I need a lot of help with!)
I’m not saying this is how you MUST do your journals should you ever wish to take it up, I’m just going to share mine with you and I hope you like it! 🙂
My journal has dotted pages, which is very use and I think it looks a lot tidier than lines or squares. I use all sorts of stationary, including fine-nibbed felt tips, washi tape, stickers, stamps, postcards- anything!!
Honestly, my washi tape collection is obscene so I won’t show you everything. (Maybe I should dedicate a whole post to showing you every roll of washi tape, and hope you don’t fall asleep) (you would).
However, I also do weekly spreads for the nitty gritty events like the dentist and over-time I may have worked. In the weekly spreads I also do weekly trackers with sleep patterns, and anxiety levels throughout the week. I also record my habits and goals, which is a really useful thing for me to do when I have panic attacks or get ill or anything, I can look back at my habits and see what may have changed.
Some of my favourite pages are just random ones where I’ve stuck in some pictures or saved a cinema ticket after seeing a film I’ve enjoyed. I went a bit crazy in this one… I wanted to save the cinema ticket but loved the film so much I decided to dedicate a whole spread to it. I’m also planning on doing this for some of my other fave films!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post about my journal, and I hope it inspires you to maybe take up bullet journaling too! If you’re interested in it, have a look at the Facebook group, I guarantee you’ll be inspired! https://m.facebook.com/groups/815967298418820
