Wow! September was an incredibly busy month. I filled two whole pages with to-dos. For reference, I usually total out at around six or seven. This month I had thirty two (blurred for privacy, of course)! And out of those thirty two, I had only ten unfinished tasks that I will need to move to Octobers to-do list. Which, I am excited to say, will be the start of my second bullet journal.
That’s right! After having bujo’d for one full year, I have officially filled my first journal. And while that doesn’t seem too impressive, I cannot stress how beneficial keeping a bullet journal has been. If you are a person, like me, who suffers from a bad memory, procrastination tendencies, and daydreaming, trust me; a bullet journal does wonders to keep you grounded in reality and on top of your shit.
Switching out journals is a little scary, since so much of my life is in the old one, but I have found that sometimes it’s best to keep the past in the past.
With that being said, Rest In Peace old bullet journal, and good riddance to some of the most trying and challenging months of my life. On to bigger and better things!
The journal that I use is super basic. It’s a dotted moleskine that you can find online here, or in any of your local Barnes & Noble’s. I usually opt for black for that classic Indiana Jones look, but the universe just wants me to have colored journals, it seems. I was stuck buying a teal, and now a beige journal. Although the colors are growing on me. I’m actually quite fond of the beige one.
Maybe I will make a post going into more depth about my bullet journaling adventures. So stay tuned for that!
So as September comes to a close, I look forward to my favorite month of all. October. Hoping it’s a little less hectic and a lot more adventurous.
Thanks for reading! How have your Septembers turned out? And how many are officially ready for the fall? I know I am!
Take care, and don’t forget to take your medications!
