Having a bullet journal can get a bit overwhelming very quickly. You have all these wonderful ideas or save
hundreds a few pins from Pinterest, and in no time you’re up late still designing a page that realistically you’re not going to use. You lose track.
Once I’d tamed my excitement, I drafted in pencil ten pages I’d like to have in my journal. These pages were outside the weekly diary sections and sat at the back of the book. That way, they were definitely segregated into the “fun” area.
Although I’m confident I’ve got the main body of my journal set out, I’m still finding new things to track that I think would genuinely come in handy.

The important thing I’ve realised about having/making a Bullet Journal is not to make it too serious. Sure, create a diary or planner section but why not create some fun pages. I have several different “fun” pages drafted out at the back of mine, but today I started my ‘Weekly Doodle’ spread. I love it. #StationerySnapshot
These are far from what I currently have in my bullet journal, however they’re there to show you the endless possibilities to making your bullet journal perfect.
