After reading about it for a few minutes I realized I’ve done it for years. Basically, it’s using a freeform book to jot down lists, notes, or ideas. I’m a serious list maker, and honestly wouldn’t have been able to cohesively move or go grocery shopping without my planner. I often also take sermon or Bible notes in my "bullet journals". They are almost always with me, so I often have them to refer to.
Putting everything into a bullet journal sort of makes it into a keepsake for the years to come. It can be little things like everyday lists, or monuments seen on a trip, or plans for a project. You can also include things like bucket lists and goals, and remarks and quotes on life. I even code or rough code in them sometime. Last summer I was stuck on a stopped train for about an hour and rough coded a cipher for an app. Though it never came to fruition, the idea is in easy reach should I ever want to resurrect it.
Happy Friday! In my attempts to decide upon a topic for today, I bounced between a few ideas. I wasn’t feeling the crafty mood very much this week (and I’m running out of spaces to decorate in my apartment), so I decided to attempt a no-sew turn your old T-shirt into a new shirt. Now I can sew, but though this idea looked interesting so I attempted it. Sadly, I didn’t put many of my engineering skills to work and it ended in an absolute disaster. No form of adult-ing always goes smoothly. Second time around, I tried to make a reusable bag out of a T-shirt. This was a success (and there is a tutorial at the bottom), but while browsing my Pinterest I came across this new idea called bullet journaling. (Read more below to find out what it is!)
