Hello, hello!  I hope you're staying safe and healthy, both mentally and physically.

Today's post is about one of my newfound loves, bullet journaling.  After years of struggling to find planners with layouts that I liked, I decided that the best alternative would be making my own planner.  I will say that I was a little intimidated by the bullet journal inspiration that I found online--some people turn their journals into literal works of art, but I can barely draw a tree on a good day.

However, the creator of the original Bullet Journal, Ryder Carroll, intended bullet journaling to be a way for people to practice mindfulness through intentional organization.  In other words, if my journal promotes productivity and intentional living, it's perfect--even without the flawless calligraphy and art pieces.

Without further ado, I'll take you through my August spread.  The theme is inspirational quotes, as I start my third year of college at the end of the month, and I want to encourage myself to have an optimistic mindset.

Supplies Used
Hard Cover Bullet Journal in "Sky Blue"
Hard-Tip Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen (used for all black lettering)
Pastel Purple Tombow Dual Brush Pen
Gold Foil Washi Tape
Black and White Grid Washi Tape

The quote above is actually a Pinterest image that I printed and pasted on the page.

I kept the above page quite simple because I use it only to keep track of the days in the month.

For each week, I divided the weekdays into two columns.  The column on the left is for listing scheduled events and activities, while the larger column on the right is for tasks.  The "Due" box is where I list assignment deadlines and exam dates, which definitely start to pile up during the academic year.

Let me know if you have questions about how I set up my layout (e.g., grid measurements, etc.).

What is your experience with bullet journaling?
