OCD

There are a tonne of things that you probably don't know about me since I update this blog oh-so-often (sarcasm, much?) Well, amongst many of the inconsequential details that make me, me, one that stands out is my need to organize every-fricking-thing. I like to call myself the maker of lists or planner of events. I like things in order. I like them planned. Be it an Iftar party or a last minute lie about homework (in which case I come up with a background story leaving no loopholes) You get the picture, yes?

So imagine my surprise when I discover the art of bullet journaling.
To imagine 22 years of survival without this simple tool of organisation. I've lived my life as an early man, a nomad. Not anymore. I'll have none of it.

If you've been living under a rock just like me, here you go,
According to bulletjournal.com, "The Bullet Journal is a customizable and forgiving organisation system. It can be your to do list, sketchbook, notebook, and diary, but most likely, it will be all of the above."


Simply put it's a book you dedicate to organize your life and make it efficient. It can be as flexible as you are or as rigid as you want it to be. You could include everyday things-to-do, books to be read, movies & series to be watched lists, habit & grade trackers, goals, what not!

Currently, I'm on a notebook hunt, looking for the perfect book that will make a lovely b.journal. Once I find it and start bullet journaling, I'll have a better idea on how it works and maybe then I'll be able to shed structured light on this concept. There'll be a comprehensive colour coded key, index, so many lists, and trackers *heavy breathing* for now, let me of ink and page that journal!

*Cue how to bullet journal Youtube videos*

See you on the other side!

Do you bullet journal? Or do any other kind of journaling? Please, please share your tips with me.

  3. Yes! I started a bullet journal in January and love it. It's so convenient to organize it as I need it (for example I need a ton of help to know what is due when, so I have a monthly as well as weekly overview for each month). I just need a thicker journal :D

  4. I love jotting things down. Would love to read your experience on it. I am thinking about starting a bullet journal after reading your post. I have so many notebooks, it is high time I put one of them to use. :)
    Happy journaling. :)

    1. Oh, you should start! I'm still in the process of discovering what works for me and what doesn't. Will do a post as soon as I figure it out a bit better :D

  5. lately life has felt so so overwhelming and there's just been so many things to do, blogging wise, creative projects, school, uni apps etc. and i honestly felt like i'd explode - bullet journalling has been an absolute godsend, not sure how i'd have kept on track without it!

    safah| oh, how i wander.
