I’ve been using a bullet journal since about the middle of May. It took some experimenting, but I finally figured what I liked, and what I wanted. Every month, I lay out my goals, and write down who’s birthdays are that month, and what events are happening.
July is no exception to that rule. But I’ve tried a few different things this month that I really think are going to help!
Before I started writing for July, I did a June recap – which I’ve never done before. I recounted all of the good things that happened, as well as the bad things. I wrote a little memorial paragraph for my friend, Sam, who passed away on the last day of June.

I didn’t know you well, but you were a good friend. You made senior year interesting, and my 3 hour break that one semester a good part of my day. I’ll miss running into you.
I think this is a good way to end the month. Going through and recounting all the good and the bad. I helps to kind of consolidate everything that happened into one list. Maybe it’ll help you learn something. Or teach you to look on the bright side!
This has helped me tremendously! It helps me keep my dates in order, and make sure that I don’t miss anything!
Another new thing I added this month is a list of favourites and posts! I wanted to try and do a Monthly Favourites video every month! Now that you know about my channel, I can tell you!!
Last month I tried to do a cute mood tracker of turtle – it didn’t turn out so hot. But this month, I decided to revamp it! I turned my mood tracker into a dot plot type thing. I like this one a lot more. It’s simpler and easier to use! The top rating is ecstatic and then it goes to meh, before dropping down to sad. being able to rate between them it great!
One of the new things I’ve tried this month, is a weekly planner. I haven’t really figured out to use it. But I’m determined! We’ll see if I use it next month!
This week is a little longer, because I started on an awkward date.
Finally, we get to the daily spread! This is always changing for me. I can never figured out which type I want. So I’m still experimenting with those.
And that’s my bullet journal! It helps me stay organized and keep my stuff in check! It also helps me plan my day. I don’t know how I ever went without one!
I’ve never gone through my spread before, and I’m hoping I did it right!
What do you think? Do you have a bullet journal? What do you do to keep organized?
Thanks for Reading!
