4 Reasons To Bullet Journal

Because Bullet Journaling is a much better planner than your iPhone calendar.

4 Reasons To Bullet Journal

If you've talked to me at all over the past four months, you've probably seen my little black journal that almost never leaves my side. Now, even though I'm not keeping a diary or making a journal of all the things I hear during the day that I could turn into a short story or poem, that little black journal is still really important. That's because I've recently put myself into the family of bullet journalists all over the world.

Bullet Journaling is basically a fancy way of saying, "I'm making my own planner out of to do lists and trackers." I've given up on Erin Condren and Lilly Pulitzer for making the best planner, and now I'm doing it myself. If you're finding it's hard to keep your life on track, and regular planners are hard to keep up with, here are a few reasons why you should also start your own bullet journal.

1. You can make it however you like.

Even though there are general guidelines for bullet journals, ultimately the bullet journal is something you create and you work on until you're absolutely pleased with your layout.

2. It's just a bunch of "to do" lists

Which are a whole lot more satisfying to check off than just writing your tasks in a planner.

3. You can keep track of anything and everything else

Even though my bullet journal is mostly to-do lists, several Bullet Journalists also keep track of their reading lists, weight loss goals, bucket lists, their mood and anxiety levels, memories, and many other pieces that they want to keep at their hand's reach.

4. It will definitely keep you organized

I had the hardest time before the bullet journal keeping up with my assignments, all the things I needed to get done that weren't school-related, and knowing what I was doing at any given time—and all of that is because regular planners just didn't work out for me. The Bullet Journal is the best system I've ever come across for actually motivating me to use it daily, and I couldn't be more thankful for that.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.
