5 Bullet Journal Layouts You NEED To Start Using

Bullet journals are one of the latest fad hobbies. From pages of Youtube videos to hundreds of pins, bullet journal-ing has taken over the crafting scene.

Why? It's simple, yet creative. Organized, yet artistic. If you're looking for an aesthetically-pleasing way to schedule your life, bullet journaling is the way to go. In a basic sense, bullet journaling can be anything you wish it to be. It can serve as a tracker for your hobbies or latest goals, a calendar for your weekly appointments and assignments, or simply an outlet for creative expression.

Whichever way you choose to utilize your bullet journal, here are five layouts you need to try at least once!

1. Weekly Spread (a.k.a. the calendar)

This is the most basic bullet journal layouts because it's something we're already used to - scheduling in a calendar! With a dotted or graphics notebook, you can easily connect the dots (or corners) to make straight lines. Break down your weekly spread by the day or the week depending on your daily needs. This daily spread is on a Friday with a water tracker, to-do list and other notes. Weekly calendar spreads can be really creative or modernly simplistic depending on your mood and lifestyle.

2. Mood Tracker

If you're struggling with staying positive throughout the day, or just want to know how your feelings fluctuate, you can design a mood tracker in the pages of your bullet journal! This creator made a planet with a geometric design along with 10 different moods. In my bullet journal, I created two boxes for each day (morning and evening) with three simple moods (positive, negative, and neutral). I highly suggest anyone who deals with anxiety or stress to utilize this bullet journal layout because you can see progression. If you take away anything from this article, remember that bullet journals reveal progress, time and effort!

3. Goals

This is another simple layout for bullet journal beginners. Create your goals, write them down and see progression by filling in a picture, shape or checkbox as you accomplish things. You can focus these layouts around the seasons (like Summer!) or events (birthdays, holidays, back-to-school). Goal layouts can be completely random, too. Typically, these layouts are extremely artistic and reflect the primary goals you have - this creator has summer goals, so she used flowers, warm colors and pretty fonts to spruce up the page.

4. Favorites

Another way to document your life is through favorites - favorite food, favorite music, favorite outfits, favorite movies. If you like it, why not bullet-journal about it? This creator wrote about her favorite k-pop artists and songs for the month, but you could keep a running list of your favorites. This layout is also perfect for adding other elements, like photos or doodles, to represent each item. Again, this can be as simple or as difficult as you intend! For lengthier favorite layouts, consider taking more time to design and organize the pages. This will make it easier to add more favorites in the future!

5. Notes

Yes, we dread going back to school and writing boring lecture notes, but if you bullet-journal your dreadful math homework, it'll make studying go by so much quicker! If you find yourself drifting away while studying, add color and dimension to your notes. This bullet journal layout is very organized, due to its note-like nature, but it doesn't have to be boring. This creator used a blue color scheme and interesting fonts to portray her math notes.

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
