After 5 months of bullet journaling, I thought it was time to catch you up on how I have been finding it!
So I decided to try and do bullet journaling properly for the summer months just to see if I could actually do it. So far I have really enjoyed the actual process of doing the bullet journal but I found that as soon as I got busy I didn’t use it and reverted back to my tried and tested methods. Old habits die hard. I tried to mix it up a bit every month just to keep things interesting and see what I actually liked doing.
Here are a few photos of my bullet journal. WARNING! I can’t draw! Everything in here was very simple to draw. I’m proof that a bullet journal doesn’t have to be complicated.
I think the thing I enjoyed most about bullet journalling was actually the sitting down and just drawing, painting and generally being creative. It was particularly nice on weeks when I was busy to just relax and unwind doing something therapeutic. Although I would never have ordinarily done this. That’s one part of this experience I’m definitely going to carry on. I also felt like I was getting more adventurous as time went on and I felt more confident in my ability to actually draw.
I don’t think I am going to continue the bullet journal now that I am back at uni because I am just so busy all the time and the methods I’m used to work so much better for me. I suppose I’m just too stuck in my old ways. You cant teach an old dog new tricks.
Has anyone else tried bullet journalling? If so how did you find it? Let me know what you think!!
