What is a bullet journal?

Scrolling through Pinterest, I came across something called a Bullet Journal. Continuing with my research, I realized this was a fad a while ago – but really who cares, because Diana just discovered it now so in her mind it is something that is a fad now.

Bullet journal was trending on Pinterest. So naturally I was like wtf is a bullet journal?

The Bullet Journal is a customizable and forgiving organization system. It can be your to-do list, sketchbook, notebook, and diary, but most likely, it will be all of the above. It will teach you to do more with less.

This is pretty funky and extremely fitting for all of us who want to pretend to be organized for a few weeks making new 2018 before we get bored and go back into our 2017 habits.

from what I understand

  • you organize using bullet points
  • the fact that this is a mind blowing idea is mind blowing
  • because you are basically making a list
  • organized by bullet points
  • so? isn’t that like reinventing the wheel?

Now, this is supposed to be something you carry with you AND physically write out – no digital notes here!

The kinds of bullets = different categories of what needs to be done…it is literally almost that agenda you would get for free in school and would only use if your teacher checked to make sure you were logging your homework so your parents could creep and see you actually have things to do aside from passing out in front of the TV.

BUT this thing is fully customization and that is probably why it is such a popular thing to do/use/follow…

The funnest things to buy/do are customizable (<do not think that is a word) because in this world where we all act/dress the same it allows us to feel special.

ultimately, this seems like a way to decompress and reevaluate

When I was in university, I would procrastinate by creating things like this…using pretty colors and organizing.

I do like this idea because it is all about creating goals and focusing on what needs to be completed in the months, weeks, and days to come…perfect way to start off the year.
