Ugh, bullet journaling

Surely a friend of yours has mentioned bullet journals or you have come across it over the vast realm of the internet. You’ve probably watched a few YouTube videos on the topic and left it forever, dazzled by all the colors and thinking you could never reach that high level of artistry.

The bullet journal is actually much simpler than that. It was designed as a personal planner with the benefit of you being able to use it at your own pace. You can actually make it bright and stunning with intricate brush-lettering and all the other bells and whistles, or as simple as you want. In fact, when Ryder Carroll came up with the bullet journal in 2013, it was designed to be minimalist until people started spicing things up.Image result for bullet journal color index

But… Bullet journals are for women!

My new bullet journal setup

The time has finally come to move on to a new bullet journal. With (almost) no space left, I had no choice but to start a new one.


I am very excited about my new bullet journal as I am finally moving on to a blue Leuchtturm1917 (By the way I’m still googling how to spell that one).  Continue reading “My new bullet journal setup”

Compromising with your blog

So today I will be talking about compromises. Not compromises between you and your physics test (ie. I’ll do 1 minute of learning for the test tomorrow instead of none), but proper and fair compromises.

Recently I’ve had to come to a compromise with this website because I never spend enough time on it, and when I do, it always comes in short bursts of energy that are uncontrollable. So I finally said to myself that it’s ok. It’s a blog, and I’ll post when I have time. No one’s life depends on it, so its fine. The compromise was that I spend time on the design and make sure it looks great.

In the end I was quite pleased with my decision and I try to post when I can. I usually post about whatever going on my mind at that particular moment, but I’ve recently done a lot of tutorials, especially on the bullet journal, a radical way to organise your lifestyle and stop procrastinating. Believe me, this is working for me and I am slowly working my way to getting all those boxes ticked.

As for the design, I’ve changed the theme and colors, and I am quite pleased with them. For my featured images on my posts, I use Canva, an amazing tool for creating aesthetic designs lickety-split (I just love that expression)!

Making the bullet journal personal

Do you ever wonder why you just can’t get your bullet journal look nice? Why you can’t master that perfect brush lettering? The problem isn’t you, it’s your bullet journal. You need to make a bullet journal that works for you. A nice-looking bullet journal isn’t going to work for you if you only look at it once a week. This isn’t about an aesthetic BuJo. It’s about what works for you.

Using tabs to organise your bullet journal

One of my great discoveries in the unconquered world of bullet journaling is the tabbed layout.

Tabs are a great way to organise your bullet journal into sections that are easy to scroll through. I use them a lot for spreads I need to see quickly, such as my year in pixels spread.

Unsure of what bullet journals are? Not to worry! Just head right over here to a post explaining what this new concept of planning is.

But… Which ones do I use?

My February bullet journal layout

The time has come again to turn the page of the calendar and prepare a new bullet journal layout. I took a while doing mine and got (a bit) delayed.

First of all, I had to decide on a theme. I left the title page blank and turned the page and started figuring out which colors I would use. As a watercolor-obsessed, that involved taking my watercolors out and testing the different color combinations I could mix up. Continue reading “My February bullet journal layout”

Keeping a bullet journal movie collection

The movie collection in the bullet journal is the best way to keep track of the movies you’ve watched and the movies you want to watch. There are a number of ways and designs possible, and you can design with your own if you want (Ooh, customisations!).

If you aren’t sure what a bullet journal is, head over here for an in-depth explanation on how it works.


In this post, I’ll be covering 2 designs: the popcorn layout and the filmstrip layout. Both are quite easy to make and don’t require too much time.  Continue reading “Keeping a bullet journal movie collection”

Starting with the Arduino

During many phases of my life, I’ve tried and failed with programming. A project I tried a few years ago was building an online social network using HTML and PHP but I never got to finish it. I tried out Android Studio a few months ago but I never really did anything with it. I even tried coding this whole blog myself but I eventually gave up and headed over to the safe haven of WordPress. I’ve got a folder named ‘UNFINISHED PROJECTS’ where I put all those half-finished projects when I don’t have anything to do with them anymore. So the next step? Starting another half-finished project, naturally.

For Christmas I got an Arduino starter kit which comes with all the things you need to start building projects with it. Unfortunately the book it comes with is in Swedish, so I’m having a hard time understanding that but luckily I live in the 21st century and there is a thing called the ‘internet’ which has a lot of helpful forums and websites on the topic of the Arduino.
