No Frills Bullet Journaling

Here is my first bullet journal, started 4 years ago this month! In the four since since I’ve started this system (I’m currently on volume 14) I’ve made some really beautiful spreads and pages using washi tape and zendoodles and brush markers and stickers and hand lettering…and…and… You get the point. But most days? 99% […]

Fighting Bullet Journal Insecurities

I’ve been bullet journaling for almost 4 years now. I first started writing about it on my personal blog and got enough traffic about it that I started this site over here so I wouldn’t confuse any people there for information about bullet journaling when I started to write about boob sweat and politics. (If […]

The Year I Try Time Blocking

I am trying to get a handle on the choas in my life right now. I don’t feel like it’s permanent chaos (a lot of it is related to a potential move or other temporary projects) or else I’d make some changes to remove some of it. Instead, I’m just trying to figure out how […]

Happy 3-Year BuJoVersary To Me!

(Yes. I did just make up a word. Why do you ask?) Do you see that volume number right there? That’s 001. That’s my FIRST official bullet journal. I say “official” because I tested the system out for about a month with a $5 notebook from Target and immediately knew: THIS IS MY JAM. My […]

How My Bullet Journal Helps Me Run

Last year I successfully completed running my first 100K with the help of my bullet journal. I have a bit of a chaotic life, so strict training plans have never suited me. So, I printed up a basic plan I found online and just tried to keep my weekly miles above the recommended goal. Beyond […]

My Secret Confession: I like Mondays.

Mondays. It’s so cool and trendy to hate Mondays, but you know what? I like them. I like them A LOT. First of all, weekends are exhausting in our world so Mondays tend to bring calm again. But also? That’s the “start” of my week when I’m planning so everything is fresh and full of […]

Halfway!

I’m not deliberately trying to make my bullet journals last a certain amount of time…actually, quite the opposite. I like the freedom the bullet journal system gives me so that if I suddenly need 10 pages for notes on a project at work, or a volunteer obligation, I can use them! 10 pages right there! […]

Stepping Away From The Computer

I’m a lot more reliant on the computer for my spreads in my bullet journal than I’d like to be. I know this is mostly because my handwriting is terrible, but it is also because I’m just enough of a perfectionist to hate lines that aren’t straight, but not enough of a perfectionist to get […]

December 2015 Vertical Calendar Page

Well, I’m still working the layout size for these vertical monthly pages. This has been a project I’ve been working on to provide vertical pages to those who prefer that over my standard horizontal, but also I wanted something I would use on the printable – hence the DECEMBER coloring page. As always – I […]

Shortest. Trial. Ever. (Plus a November Bullet Journal Printable!)

If you follow my bullet journal instagram you know that I was trying something new this week: Week-In-View planning pages. And while I loved making the spread and I love looking at it, I have missed having my brand new daily pages every day so I had to wake up this morning and do a […]
