Who knew that having a journal would make me feel happy and fulfilled?  Before I started to do bullet journal (also known as Bojo), I thought that writing what I felt on a piece of paper or in a journal was foolish of me to do. With the amount of homework that we get at school and the after school activities that we students have, there was no time for me to sit down and write things. Let alone, organize and make an agenda from scratch.

 

Then, while strolling through Pinterest and Tumblr, I started liking the idea of a bullet journal. There are many types of journalism, but this one just blew my mind. It is worthwhile to have a journal where you can write anything that you want, instead of worrying about the limited space or just how inconvenient the agendas bought at the store are. You can have an “agenda” just made to fit your needs.

 

This type of journaling was created by Ryder Carroll, who wanted an agenda where he could put to-do list, have space to write notes and information. He wanted something where he could keep track of the things he is doing, things he has done, and things that he will do. I think that this is a great and unique way to have everything in one place, instead of having different notebooks to put phone numbers,  to-do lists, and even doodle notebooks. This format combines all of these things. Not only that, this type of journalism is a way to keep track of our lives , and it is customizable. You can have it really simple or go all the way with doodles in the margin and even washi tape.

 

As a teenager, I sometimes feel like I forget things that I needed to do, things that I already had done, and things that I was doing. That is why I felt that this system was good for me, and I wanted to give it a try for a week, to see the results. I was going to have to make enough time to keep my journaling spreads up to date and for the ability to customize it to fit the things that I needed to remember. And let me tell you, at first I was really stressed because I wanted it to be perfect. But that is the thing, bullet journals are not perfect, they should be able to show who you really are, in a book and in a creative way.

 

All you need to get started on a bullet journal, is a pen and a notebook to write in. So why not give it a try? You might be surprised at how awesome it can be. By doing this I have felt on top of things, I feel organized and my thought are at the palm of my hand. Bullet journal is an amazing thing to try, so what is stopping you?
