I’m self-admittedly a stationery addict. I love to collect journals and most of them are just collecting dust in a corner because I still don’t have a use for them. But this post is for the ones I am using currently. I should really do something about my other ones lol.
I love using this notebook as my bujo. The pages are smooth and are easy to write on. The paper is really thin, so I can’t use copic markers on them, but regular pens and highlighters are great with them. I like the spiral bound because I can rip out pages that have mistakes on them.
I use this journal to jot down sermons from church. I love to doodle my sermon notes so this blank journal is perfect for doing that. This this is the second Leuchtturm1917 notebook I’ve used for this purpose. The pages are numbered and I can write down which sermon and when it was preached. The only reason I wouldn’t use this journal for my bujo is because I can’t rip them out >.<
This is where I write notes from my Bible reading time. It is a ruled notebook unlike the other two I’ve mentioned. The layout is simple and I love how there is a date section at the top and plenty of room to write titles.
Basically, these journals help me keep my life together, both spiritually and mentally. Allowing God’s Word to have precedence and being able to write it down and meditate on Bible verses.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.
When I first heard of the bullet journal was skeptical to how it worked. How could one possibly make a planner so flexible? I was interested because I could never make planners work for me, whether it was app or it was one of those expensive and pretty Kate Spade planners from Chapters. I always found that I would run out of space to write everything I wanted in traditional planners and I hated typing everything in my phone. So I just gave up trying.
So when I found out about bullet journalling, I would watch videos on bullet journalling and scroll through studyblrs on Tumblr admiring them. I wanted to start one but could not bring myself to do it because of the commitment until recently… (very recently). I found out a close friend of mine had started bullet journalling a couple months back. I looked through her bullet journal and finally was inspired to put my admirations into action.
Today I would like to share some of my bullet journal spreads and some ideas I’ve started implementing. (Even though I literally just started)
One of the biggest issues that held me back from starting was that I’m a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to customizing my personal things. I just could not decide on fonts and styles and ended up ripping pages out continually. Once I just settled and got over it, it became much more enjoyable. Ideas of different things to add in my journal kept on coming.
I encourage anyone who is looking into bullet journaling to start! It really is as flexible as it claims to be because honestly, the only thing the bullet journal is limited by is your imagination. Grab a blank journal and just start! Get over your mistakes and just go for it!
I hope to post a bit more when I had more of journal filled, like daily spreads and some fun logs I’ve set that have yet to be filled in. 🙂
