I've started bullet journaling. For awhile now it's been ALL THINGS JOURNAL, so why not explore another popular form of journaling?
There are many many points of inspiration along the Pinterest trail, and I get inspired by the categories and the page set-ups.
As far as Camps go, I'm falling into the Creative one (as opposed to purely planning). I want my bujo (the shortened form) to reflect my interests, and I want these pages that I want to look at, and respond and add to. It's difficult to say at this time what-all will be included in it, but my best guess will be trackers of various goals and projects, lists, and whatever else grabs my fancy in the moment. The top priority for me with this right now is PLAYING and EXPERIMENTING.
So, on with the show! Some pages I've done so far...
Quotes are a popular thing for bullet journalers to include in their book. I dig Ben Franklin, so I devoted a spread to his quotes.
I'd done a pageful of doodles a while back that I'd called "Robots & Groceries". The theme sorta tickled me, so I used it again for this page.
I'm not a big fan of grocery shopping (although I AM a big fan of groceries). Pretending I've been programmed to do a task in some weird way makes it better/ easier. Whatever works.
The Key page in bullet journals where journalers list the symbols that they're using seems to be a common element, so I decorated the page with key drawings.
Man this was fun to do!
Lotsa bullet journalers have pages devoted to their viewing habits. I liked the idea so created this version. Since I'm a child of the '70s, my television sets will always have KNOBS and RABBIT EARS. It's like my telephones will always have curlique cords and rotary dials. It might seem like I'm being kitschy, but really it's just that I am middle-aged and set in my TV-and-phone-drawin' ways. ¡Que lastima!
Another standard in bullet journaling is the "Brain Dump". This is where one jots down, in bullet format, all the THINGS TO DO and IDEAS and other stuff vying for attention in the old noggin. Later on this info can be deciminated to the proper lists and action plans. Since I am nothing if not literal, I drew two versions of a brain dump. I've got other ideas for other brain dump pages that I want to fool around with...
I want to make sure that this bullet journal doesn't become All Work and No Play (cuz we all know that that made Jack a Dull Boy), I made a spread with ideas for how to be nice to myself. I tend to err on the side of being a Human Doing and not a Human Being (see robots, above), so I'm working (there it is again) on making relaxing a regular part of my life.
So that's what I've got thus far!
Are you bullet journaling? If so, what are your important pages/ headings/ lists?
Do you have some suggestions for pages you'd like to see me tackle?
I'd love your input and ideas!
Thanks for stopping by!
