Since school has started again, I decided to write a post about my “student bullet journal”. Going back to school is not the most exciting thing there is, but I hope my post and journal ideas make it a bit more fun!
As you guys know, I am keeping a bullet journal to make my life less chaotic (and also because I just think it’s pretty and awesome). First I was afraid it was going to take to much time, but actually it doesn’t take that much time, so if you’re still in doubt about starting a bullet journal: IT IS VERY EASY AND IT DOESN’T TAKE THAT MUCH TIME.
But of course you can also just buy a pretty pre-made planner. In that case, here are a few of my favourite planners:
- Bando planner 2018 DEFINITELY MY FAVOURITE!
- Get To Work Book
- The Happiness Planner
- Seize The Day Planner
- LiveWell Planner
After you’ve checked those planners out (or not, it’s up to you), I’m going to give you a look into my monthly student planner.
- First of all, I started with a “cover”
You guys probably noticed my cover is on page 161, this is because I split my journal up into two parts: my personal planner and my student journal. The first 160 pages of my journal, I use to plan my personal things.
2. My time table
3. Monthly log
Here I write down important tasks, events and deadlines.
4. Weekly logs
This is a little bit more detailed than my monthly log. On these pages I write my tasks and events for every week (like “study page 2-34” or something).
Also, I keep track of my weekly goals and I use the little space that says “notes” to write things down I have to remember but don’t have a specific date (yet).
BUT my favourite part of my weekly spreads is definitely my “study log”. I use this to see how many hours I have studied every subject per day.
As a student, you have to get enough sleep so you can keep focusing. BUT you also need some friends and a social life. That’s the reason why I made this page, so I can find a right balance between sleeping , studying and hanging out with friends.
If you are creating a bullet journal yourself, I would recommend this because it helps a lot to get a nice overview on your sleeping pattern.
6. Expense tracker
Another MUST HAVE FOR STUDENTS. You probably all have a limited budget and to much places around you to spend your money at…
This is how I keep track on my monthly budget and make sure I don’t starve to death every last week of the month!
There you go! This is how my student bullet journal looks like! Of course there are no specific rules, so you can add some other things or leave some things out of your bullet journal if you want to. I hope you got some inspiration if you have a bullet journal yourself (or otherwise I hope you just enjoyed reading this post). If you got some ideas/advise/questions, don't feel shy to share them, I would LOVE TO GET SOME ADVICE AND CREATIVE IDEAS!!! Also, please let me know what you think. xoxo Sarah
