    Girlll, I loved this post! It was so helpful to get an insider look at your lovely little bullet journal. It’s so adorable!!

    I started mine a while ago, but haven’t really been keeping up with it. This post has gotten me totally re-excited about it, though!! I’m going to do a new set up and steal some of your ideas for sure.

    I think pretty pens are pretty important for a bullet journal. One of my friends was saying that if her journal didn’t look aesthetically pleasing, she wasn’t going to be motivated to use it, and I was like SO TRUE. Making it pretty = a total necessity, which means you need all the pretty studyblr pens, no?! 😉

    Love the calendar idea! I like having everything spread out for me as well, which is why I think I’m going to snag the calendar, instead of just having the listed dates like a typical journal. Also, yes to tracking habits!! I want to drink more water, blog more, and exercise regularly, so those are all things I want to add. One of my friends (same girl I quoted above lol) also tracks her productivity- with a little smiley face if she felt good or not- and I love that idea too!

    Basically I LOVE YOUR JOURNAL. Can’t wait to re-do mine!!!! Also, shoutout to all the pretty studyblrs, omg. Love all that inspiration. <33

    This looks so coooooooooooooooooool! I tried to start a diary/journal at the start of this school year but I haven’t really been keeping up with it recently which I really need to start doing again. I hope you can keep up with this better than I did!

    This is just beautiful! I’m not good with keeping up with journals (I don’t even own a planner!), but this definitely is a lot more creative and personal than using a regular notebook! Also, can I have you writing?? Please 🙂

    omg xan you know i’ve been waiting for this post for ages and it’s everything i wanted and more! i loved getting a sneak peek into your bullet journal! your pens and layout is so pretty! my journal in comparison is very bare (or maybe minimalist if you want to be more complimentary). i watched the bullet journal video but felt like it was a little excessive so for me my bullet journal is essentially a glorified to do list. i don’t really haev monthly views or future logs as i have a separate planner for that (also since i would say 80% of events for the future etc i have to remember are school deadlines and i have an academic planner for that so it’s just easier to throw in the 20% not school with the school as well) but i have a habits log too for every day and i suck at keeping up with them too haha. though i haven’t really been good at using my bullet journal lately , this post really inspired me to get back into it.

    I had no idea what a bullet journal was, but now I’m officially obsessed! No joke going to start one soon 🙂 This post is so inspiring, and your handwriting is to die for. I think this is definitely going to help me manage my time better/be more motivated to do things in a timely fashion instead of last minute. So excited to start!

    I just started using this today. i tweaked it a little bit to fit my lifestyle better, but I really like it so far. Very helpful post and I now feel the urge to go buy some colorful pens.

    I’ve been searching for a suitable planner/notebook system that I think should work for me, so it’s pretty timely that you decided to share your bullet journal system! Though I don’t think I would stick to it for long because sticking to a legend would require me to think too much about how best to set up and then I’d keep second-guessing myself. Lol.

    I loved this post, it was very informative. I’m planning (hah, get it, planning) on doing my owl bullet journal, and I really liked your layout.

    This is just…gah, MARVELLOUS. I’ve never managed to persevere with writing a journal. It was my goal for 2015 and…ha. I didn’t even crack a journal open. -_- I LOOOOVE how this is set out though! TEMPTING.

    Wow! I’ve been meaning to check this out for a while, and I’ve got to say, this looks exactly like something I’d use. Your handwriting is BEAUTIFUL, btw.
