I was just introduced to bullet journals by a friend. It is a concept that I had never heard of, even though I have been keeping a journal and updating my online calendars forever.
To be completely honest, I was a little hesitant to try it. I mean, who needs one more thing to keep track of?
Then I started researching it. While the concept may look a little convoluted, once it is set up there seems to be so much potential to create a system that works for you.
So the few, very few, who take the time to read the classroom blog may wonder what this topic is doing here. Simple, students and adults all need be organized and we simply do not have the time or energy to carry around what seems like a million planners, phones, etc.
And no. I am not suggesting doing away with your phone. If you are a family that needs to coordinate schedules, one shared calendar app is extremely helpful. But I really do like the idea of having a personalized calendar, to-do list, and journal all in one location that doesn't depend on a charger or require me to open up 3 different apps to accomplish my goals.
Here are two different links that I found to be helpful. I will try to post pictures of my journal later, but these sites should be able to get you started.
