Happy New Year! Let's (Bullet) Journal!

Hey everyone, how have you been?

So… I’ve decided to try a few new things this year. One of them is bullet journaling. I’ve been watching YouTubers like AmandaRachLee bullet journal for a few weeks now and I thought what better time to start than in the New Year. I thought it would be cool to document the process and see where it takes me, so here we go!

So, first things first, what is a bullet journal?

Bullet journals were an idea started by Ryder Carroll. It's basically a method of journalling that is meant to help you be productive and organised. You have a key that you use to log different tasks/events and you cross them off as you go. I've looked at some other bloggers and their journals are honestly amazing.

To begin, I had to buy a journal. Now I already have a whole load of notebooks already but apparently for bullet journaling you need a journal with dotted pages. This meant all my lined and plain notebooks weren’t going to be helpful here. After some research it turned out that one of the more popular brands was the Leuchtturm 1917. I hopped on Amazon and got one same-day delivery because I just couldn't wait to start.

At first I was just looking at the pages, too scared to write anything in case I ruined it. 

Then I got the courage to draw in pencil.

Then I mustered the courage to go over it in pen.

And at some point I had this:

It looked alright so I continued on to do my '2019 at a glance page'.

After rubbing out all the pencil I got this:

It's been super fun journalling so far and I'll be adding a new feature called Let's Journal! to the blog. If any of you guys have done bullet journals or a hoping to start one let me know in the comments. I'd love to hear some tips and tricks.
