I’ve always been an organized person. I’ve had planners for as long as I can remember: I think it’s reassuring to have a physical place where you write all the things you have to do and the appointments/ events you have to attend. Last year, I came to a point in my life, however, where I was not satisfied with a planner. I felt like I didn’t have enough freedom to do whatever I wanted. That’s where bullet journaling came in.
I’ve been following bullet journaling youtube channels and Instagram accounts for a few years now but I always thought I could never have one because I wasn’t good a drawing and my calligraphy wasn’t pretty. Then I read ”The Bullet Journal Method” and I realized that the whole point of bullet journaling is not to make your bujo all pretty, but to make it functional. That was kinda life-changing for me, not gonna lie.

Something I love to do in my bujo is trackers. I feel like they keep me accountable and remind me to do things more. The sleep tracker has helped me to realize how the amount of sleep I get affects my mood.
There are a ton of different ways you can do your weekly spreads. This spread what the first one I tried back in September. I kept using it until January and then decided to change it. That’s the beauty of bullet journaling: if something isn’t working for you, just change it.
