    6 Bullet Journal Spread Ideas For Students

    One of my most used items at university is my bullet journal. I love planning this way because I can customize a bullet journal spread for my specific needs. My bullet journal keeps me organised and in turn, helps me get all my coursework finished and handed in on time.  If you already have a bullet journal you will know how much it can aid productivity. One advantage of the bullet journal system is how it can be customised for your specific needs.  Today I am going to share 6 examples of spreads you can use in your bullet journal which can help you stay organised at university. These spreads…

    FranNerd Yearly Planner Review & Haul

    FranNerd is an illustrator and designer currently working in New York. I originally came across Fran on YouTube about 5 years ago where she makes videos sharing her illustrations and life. Over the last few years, Fran has been working on a series of planners. And I’m here today to review version two of her Open Yearly Planner. Honestly, I’m so excited that I can actually do this. Like I said I’ve been watching Fran’s videos for years. It’s been fascinating watching Frans life over that time, moving from Belgium to Hastings and then on to New York. FranNerd has documented this whole process on her YouTube channel along with…

    How To Migrate Into A New Bullet Journal

    We’re now over half way through the year which means it’s time for me to migrate into a new bullet journal.

To the point where I’ve been using my bullet journal religiously for the last six months and have to migrate into a new bullet journal. This is really quite unusual for me. I tend to regularly change up my planning style. Sometimes this comes from wanting a change. Other times what I need out of a planner can change. I don’t see the point in using a dated planner…

    The Best Planners For University Students

    It’s the end of summer, which means it’s now my favourite time of the year. Back to school season. Okay, that’s not entirely true. Starting a new course or going back after having a full summer off can be stressful. But it also gives you a perfectly good excuse to buy a new planner. Today I’m going to share what I think are the best planners for students. All the planners I’ve mentioned in this blog post are ones I’ve used at some point in the past at college or university. Some I found more helpful than others. But this is a good place to start if you’re a university…

    I Tried Using A Sketchbook As A Bullet Journal

    Previously I’ve written about how you don’t need a special notebook for bullet journaling. In one example I’ve shown how it is possible to bullet journal in a lined notebook. Recently I’ve noticed that university has changed the way I use sketchbooks to document my thought process. So this made me wonder something. Is it possible to use a sketchbook as a bullet journal? I’ve been bullet journaling for 5 years, at the beginning I only used my bullet journal to organise my time. As my bullet journal method has evolved I’ve also changed what I keep in my bullet journal. In the past, I would keep my lecture notes…
