We love bullet journals. But even more than that, we love the people behind the bullet journal. Welcome to our Featured Bullet Journal series – where we give you a peek inside the brains, and journals, of some cool people. Want to get featured? We would love to have you. Learn more here.
Today we are chatting with Aleysha from Decaffeinated College Student.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what prompted you to start a bullet journal?
I was already using a blank notebook to keep track of assignments and test, a bullet journal just made that a lot more organized.
Why do you bullet journal over other planning systems?
It does not get boring because I can always try something new and change it up. Also not wasted pages if I don’t use it a lot for a few days.
What are your ‘can’t live without’ tools for bullet journaling?
A pencil, eraser, staedtlers, and a ruler. (Editors note: see our favorite supplies)
What is one piece of advice you have for someone just starting out?
Keep trying new layouts even if you think you found “the one”. I notice that I often switch back and forth between layouts.
Where do you go for bullet journal inspiration?
I started on Tumblr, that’s where I got the original idea of an actual bullet journal. Now Instagram is my go to source.
