I have been consistently bullet journaling since December of 2017. It’s crazy to think that it’s been that long! Since then, I have owned two physical bullet journals and a digital bullet journal through my GoodNotes app on my iPad. Yesterday, I made the purchase of a new bullet journal, the Leuchtturm 1917 Dotted Journal in Nordic Blue from my college campus bookstore. They had an entire display of them and as I walked past them every day, I thought about it more and more.
My digital bullet journal is something I have been using since last April. Almost a year! It’s been a long time since I dabbled in physical bullet journaling. I had all of the materials, like my TomBow dual brush pens and my washi tape, but I wasn’t using them. And as I kept seeing the physical book day after day on campus, I began thinking about it more and more.
I loved having my physical bullet journal. The hours I would spend pouring art and details into it is something I cherish, and with everything in my life being chaotic right now with the pandemic, I wanted to find a source of peace in my life that would be stable throughout everything.
I’ll be starting my new journal in March and have been spending time sketching out the designs for this month. I have been focusing on a flowery theme with rustic and neutral colors. I am very excited to start this again. To celebrate the new journal, I have found some new pens that have some of the best reviews amongst the bullet journal community. The MUJI Style Gel Pen Variety Pack, which I have linked. Amazon had the best prices, but the prices have moved around a lot since my purchase. I got them for about $10, but now the price is showing as $12.75. I would suggest watching the price and seeing if it reaches the desired price within your budget!
All in all, I am very excited about my new bullet journal. I think it’s been a long time coming to come back to my physical journal. I have all of the materials and patience, and now I have the time to dedicate to it to make sure it’s the best design and spread possible. I am grateful for the opportunity to get better with my bullet journaling and look forward to seeing what I create!
