Sarah's first suggestion was DONT GET ON PINTEREST - but I did it and died but to save you, here is my pinterest board with some of my most faves. If you're brave, you may go off yourself *coughcough* wouldn't recommend it.......
then I ordered THIS notebook with THESE gel pens off of Amazon. The spinal bound notebook was like YES OKAY IM BUYING THIS LIKE RIGGHHHTT NOW. cuz I need my bullet journal in sight, open and on my desk. Otherwise, I promise you, I'll never use it!!
When it came to actually writing in the book, I WAS SCARED K. To calm myself down, I grabbed my laptop - at first I was thinking "oh I'll just listen to music and give this a try" but then I opened the pinterest pins I liked and basically sat there copying and EEP before I knew it MY BULLET JOURNAL WAS COMING TOGETHER.
- music + headphones
- notebook and pens
- good black pen that doesn't bleed
- and like some time (HA I KNOW RIGHT)
and even tho I thought this thing was going to be so stressful NOPE. not even close. I LOOVEE sitting there are doing this artistic thing each weekend.
So, what I'm doing right now (bullet journaling is AWESOME LIKE THAT you can change it up whenever you want) is a monthly calendar with goals and a dotted fill in the blank what I've completed each day. (pic 5)
Then I make up a weekly planner each week (pics 3-4). That's where I'm allowed to be the most free in whatever I like. I have a sleeptracker, DIY projects I want to do, blogpost ideas, what's going on each day, appointments, birthdays, movies/books each week, the weather and also IF I EXERCISED. hahaha
and I promise you the only way I'm getting it to look this nice ARE BC OF THE DOTS. It's all counting and dividing, ending up with rather straight and clean lines. obv my journal isn't perfect. but eeeeeeeeep I LOVE IT SO MUCH. also all the colors from the pens are legit awesomeness.
GUYS I ALSO JUST FINISHED SARE'S BOOK - im dead thats all k
do you bullet journal too?
