Bullet Journal 101

Declaimer: I am in no way, shape, or form an expert on Bullet Journaling. This post is here to help anyone who is struggling with the concept or is in need of some guidance. Thank you.

What is a Bullet Journal?

A Bullet Journal is a customizable organization system. It can be your to-do list, sketchbook, notebook, and diary, but most likely, it will be all of the above.

Some Bullet Journal Terminology:

Key- explanatory table of symbols used to aid in the finding of similar subjects/events/or notes

Weekly Spread- a week shown out over the course of one or more pages listing out events, notes, pictures, lists, etc.

Index- a list of names, subjects, etc., with references to the places where they occur over the course of the journal

Month on two pages view- two pages where on one page the big monthly events are listed and on the other is an overview of the month

Daily to do list- a list that changes day to day where it contains the activities or goals of that specific date

Migrate- to move a task that was not accomplished or finished on the day that it was intended to another day

How do I get started?

Step 1) Get a journal, notebook, planner, binder with notebook paper, basically anything that will allow you to write a copious amount in one organized place

Step 2) Use pencils, markers, pens, highlighters, or any form of writing utensil that will let you jot down your notes, plans, or daily schedules

Step 3) Find a design, links for some of my personal inspirations will be linked down below, or format that suits your liking. If any of those aren’t your cup of tea don’t feel like you have to choose one, make it your own and have fun!!!

And my running tag for Bullet Journal inspiration:

Step 4) Decorate, decorate, DECORATE!!! This, again, is completely optional but don’t be afraid to spice up your journal with anything you like. Stickers, magazine cutouts, ribbon, washi tape, jewels, sequins, pictures, sticky notes, basically anything that you like!

  • What I use: I use sticky notes, washi tape, flags, and stickers

Step 5) Start your journey to a new style of organization and planning!!!

Picked up a box of Buffalo Bore 440 Grain Lead Flat Nose .500 S&W ammo for my Raging Bull 500. Going to take it to the range and see how it goes. I’m not overly concerned about the recoil; I’ve already shot my Thunder Five which is a .45-70 Govt snub nosed revolver with a 2″ barrel. (GRH)

hi friends! sorry I haven’t posted any original content lately. I’m on summer break so not much studying going on over here (praise the lord).
ANYWAYS…I did restart my bullet journal in a different notebook because my old one just wasn’t doing it for me.
I (finally) got a job and decided to make a spread of my work schedule so I’d thought I’d share it!
let me know if you guys wanna see any more of my bullet journal :)
wishing you all a peaceful and successful week
best, maddy

Bullet leaving barrel at 1 million frames per second.

The velocity with which the bullet exits is known as muzzle velocity. It is around 1000 m/s on average. But higher muzzle velocity is also acheivable.
