10 Habits And Events To Track In Your Bullet Journal

Everything you need to do, all in one place.


Bullet journals are the ideal creative outlet for the tracking and planning obsessed. They allow you to come up with your own designs, fonts, layouts, and more while still being productive. Of course, all of these things can be tracked on your phone, but setting aside time each day to update your bullet journal allows you more necessary space away from technology. With that, here are 10 habits and events to keep track of in your bullet journal.

1. Your spending/saving 

Yes, most people can see this through their banking app. But, when you have to write down each thing you are spending your money on, you become more aware the next time you are making a purchase that you will have to write the item down in your bullet journal. This can really help you decide if you need the item or not.

2. Your mood 

Tracking your mood can help you see possible trends or patterns around certain times of the month or days of the week.

3. The birthdays of your friends and family 

We've all forgotten someone's birthday. Not our proudest moments. A solution is to keep a tracker like the one above and remember to check it at the beginning of each month.

4. Books you want to read 

A bookcase tracker is such a cute way to keep a running list of all the books you want to read. Then, each time you complete one of the reads, you can color in the spine.

5. Your skincare routines 

Tracking your skincare can help you stick with a certain routine. For those who already do have a routine, it can be really helpful to remember when you did the steps that you don't do every day, like exfoliating or doing a face mask. It can be destructive to do certain parts of your routine too often.

6. Your sleep 

Like a mood tracker, this can help you to see certain trends in your sleeping during certain weeks or months.

7. Your to-do list 

This is just an organized way of keeping track of everything you have to do. You can organize it by deadline, by priority or by anything that will be useful to you.

8. Your water/food consumption 

In tracking your water consumption, you will probably feel more inclined to meet your daily goals in knowing that you will be able to physically color in the water drops or mark in your personal way that you completed the task. On the other hand, not having to write down that you ate chocolate will probably help you to not consume food that really isn't necessary.

9. Your workouts

When and what you worked out and for how long is important to keep track of. It allows you to see when you did cardio or strength training, and helps you to space out certain exercises.

10. Your goals 

Like the above tracker shows, writing down your specific goals and tracking their progress really helps you to focus on them and make them a priority.

Keeping track of your habits, life events, goals, and other things can be a really interesting thing to look back on months or years later, to see how you were living at a certain period of your life. Even more important, tracking these things allows you to see where your life is at, and can help you to change it for the better.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college 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.
