5 Topics To Bullet Journal About When You're Bored

And want to do something productive.

5 Topics To Bullet Journal About When You're Bored
Andrew Miller Photography

Long ago, in a Starbucks within a mystical city, there was an unproductive woman starring at her journal, wondering what she could fill her time with. Minutes droned on as her brain turned to mush. All of a sudden, she began to think about her favorite veggie sausage and how she managed to go a week consistently peering in her freezer only to find an empty package set there as a reminder.

How can one be a productive addition to the adult workforce if she is unable to manage shopping for veggie sausage? So she began to write her grocery list, and didn't stop at that. Below are the top five subjects to write about in a bullet journal!

1. Shopping List


This is simple but can be beneficially time-consuming as well as entertaining; for you have the ability dissect your weekly food intake, and regulate it in an orderly fashion that provides you with the resources to save money and only buy exactly what you need.

I love doing this, because in addition to just my grocery shopping I include my other food/drink spending at coffee shops and other fast food joints, that devour my paycheck and minimize this with wallet-friendly alternatives.

2. Daily routine/ To-do list


For those of you with downfalls in the same areas as me, such as remembering to write down important details in your agenda book, the prospect of scoping out your workload, academically as well as personally, can tremendously help to relieve stress and prevent you from taking a second to stop and scratch your head.

3. Simple joys in life



Whenever I'm feeling down and forget what life is about, I find it uplifting to sit down and ponder the small aspects of life that often slip by unappreciated. Just look around you, whatever it is, your family, laughter, the air, there is a never-ending supply of goodness all around, and sometimes are you need is to pick your chin up and experience it.

4. What you have achieved and where you want to go


Self reflection is a critical part of comprehending cause and effect and the power oneself has in their life. This type of bullet list can help discover accomplishments that you forgot about, or point out the lack of achievement you've seen toward your goals. Either way, self criticism and praise shows you where you came, where you wanna go, and the steps you are taking to get there.

5. Books you want to read and places you want to see


Never forget that education is the backbone of our human society, and a way to preserve knowledge to aid future generations. Learning should not stop at school, and it's important to find your educational niche and topic you crave to dig deeper into. In the same manner, travel is all about hands-on experience, and provides a deeper understanding of a concept that cannot be entirely absorbed through the pages. So pick up a book, and get out there into the world!

What you did sounds dumb to me

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
