This is my first time using and creating a bullet journal. And I already love it! I’m convinced of its usefulness in tracking, organizing, and journaling. I feel like journaling is something that you don’t see a lot of in bullet journals. But I love to keep a diary of important days or events in my life. The great thing about a bullet journal is that it’s up to me! I can do both. It’s a blank canvas for my needs. Whether I need to journal one week, doodle the next, or keep an agenda, all of these things are possible when I’m the one designing its features.
Something that I grappled with before embarking on this process, was the fact that the bullet journal and materials aren’t exactly zero waste. But besides the journal itself, I already had all the materials. I didn’t buy anything except the journal. In this way, I’m using what I already have. As for the journal itself, I plan to keep it for my entire life. It has value to me in documenting important events of my life, my thoughts, and generally keeping a record that I can refer to in the future.
I’ve been scouring Pinterest for ideas and inspiration. After drafting on scrap paper, I came up with this set up for my 2019 bullet journal. I went with a clean, easy design and especially love the future log I came up with.
Resolutions and Goals
Do you have a bullet journal? I’ve found I’m really enjoying the process of designing and doodling my life.
