5 Advantages Of Creating A Bullet Journal

Combining organization and journaling into one neat book.

5 Advantages Of Creating A Bullet Journal

One of the most popular trends within the past two years has been bullet journaling. The official Bullet Journal website describes it as "a customizable and forgiving organizational system." It combines a planner, to-do list, journal, and sketchbook into one book that is organized in a simple way. While some may see it as a weird way to organize your life, there are many advantages to starting this system.

1. It allows you to customize a planner.

While some planners are super cute, bullet journals allow you to completely customize the style of your planner. You get to create your own look and allow for more space for events and assignments based on your need. Also, you get to make it look super cute with doodles.

2. You have no restrictions on your creativity.

While the journal can be a place to organize your events and assignments, it can also be a place to make creative spreads. The photo above is a spread commemorating May the Fourth. These kinds of spreads can fit in with your bullet journal because there are no restrictions on what you can do in your journal.

3. It is incredibly easy to set up.

This official website includes the steps that will help you set up your notebook. Obviously, your notebook does not have to be set up completely the same as the website describes. However, it will give you an easy starting point to begin your journal. If you want to try something different, it is easy to find other methods that other people use.

4. It can help you to keep track of your habits.

A bunch of people use bullet journals to help keep track of things they should do daily like take medicine or wash their face. This acts as a reminder and helps you recognize your habits and what you should do more often. It can be anything as simple as just tracking your cups of water and can help you ensure that you are doing everything you need to in your daily schedule.

5. You are able to keep track of everything and keep it in one place.

While it acts as a planner, it also acts as a way to organize your thoughts and ideas. It's supposed to be a place where you can write down any idea that is in your mind during the day. Many people have pages dedicated to movies they want to watch or books they want to read. It can be a place to jot these kinds of things down and keep it organized in one place.

Overall, having a bullet journal has been one of the best things that I have personally done. It has helped motivate me and keep me on track as well as help me organize my various events over the summer.

I have enjoyed learning how I like this system and figuring out new things that work for me. I encourage everyone to look into trying it because it honestly brings a new point of view on your organization. If you do look into it, recognize that you do not need any fancy paper and pens, just a notebook and pen and a way that you can organize your life.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
