Bullet Journaling


Have y’all ever read about bullet journaling? I stumbled upon this on Pinterest (of course!) and thought it looked so fun! It's basically a form of agenda planning or scrapbooking. It's a fun little hobby. I'm not always in the mood to do it, but sometimes it's a fun escape to work on while watching TV or listening to music. 
There are tons of page ideas on Pinterest. I like to make lists in mine and keep up with books I've read and movies I want to watch. I just completed my summer reading list and thought I'd share that page with y'all. I also finished a movies to watch page and a "one word month" page. I love the idea of the "one word month". You simply create a monthly layout and then write in one word for each day that you would use to describe that day. I think this is so fun to look back at and see what your month was like. Since it's May and I'm a teacher, my month is filled with all sorts of CRAZY! :) :) 



As y'all know, I love reading all year long, but summer reading is extra special! That's when a lot of new releases come out and since I'm a teacher, I use summer to catch up on all my favorites because I have time to really concentrate on a book and not have a million and one other things on my mind. I always make a list of books that are being released in the upcoming months, so I included that in my bullet journal. 



I love the idea of keeping lists in the journal to keep track of things like movies to be watch. I did a page for this and then colored in the ones I've watched. I realized after I colored these that since they were pieces of popcorn I shouldn't have done multi colored! Oh well!

When I posted a pic on Instagram a while ago, a lot of people asked me what kind of journal I used. I don't get super technical with this hobby. I just use a plain ole regular notebook! I found this cute one at TJ Maxx and bought it because it reminded me of Mean Girls and who doesn't love Mean Girls. The movie, not actual girls who are mean! ;)

Pens are the key to a good bullet journal page! I just bought these sharpie art pens at Target and LOVE them! They don't bleed at all!


My all time favorites are the Staedtler triplus fineliner pens, but the Sharpie art pens may just surpass them!


After reading this book, I decided to try out these next two types of pens and I really like them too!
