hello my friends its nina and for this video we're talking about bullet journals
this video has been highly requested for a very very very long time
so i in no way am a bullet journal expert
nor do I intend to be
but I am a person that uses a bullet journal and
so I thought maybe this video will be useful to someone
so that is what I'm going to be doing today
I'm going to finally show you my
minimalist very simple bullet journal setup
I'm warning you guys right now
my bullet journal setup is extremely simple
to the point where you guys might be like
nina, that is too simple
and you're right
but this system works for me it has worked for
well actually I used this specific system for like a few months now
but it's been very useful, it's helped me be consistent and
it does the job
you can be more complex with your themes or it can be very simple
whatever it is in my life a bullet journal has been very useful
and so I use it every single day basically
if you are like me and you only have two brain cells
then this is the bullet journal system for you
but without further ado, let's get into the video
so first, I'm going to talk about the materials that I use obviously
because we got to start somewhere
so the most important thing is your bullet journal
this is a dotted hardcover notebook
it is this brand
I've used this one bullet journal for about one and a half to two years
I've used this much and I have this much to go
because this is a dotted notebook the pages have literal dots
I feel like compared to grids and lines
this just allows for more creative freedom
and it's just lighter on the eye basically
because you're going to be drawing a lot on this
this bullet journal also comes with an index in the front
and in the back it has this nice little folder
so you can tuck in stickers and whatever you want
so this is the one that I use
and then onto the stationery that I use
I like to have markers
markers are definitely a great part of bullet journaling
it allows for colors and themes and all that
honestly you could just use Crayola super tips or whatever is available to you
these are just markers that I happened to have
and they are dual tip
so there is a nice chisel tip on top
and then a fine tip on the other side
so I like these
Crayola super tips
there are literally like what 100 something colors?
those are great
find whatever suits you
I have other mild liners that I got
I got a nice set of them
the more variety of the better
i have a nice pastel and then more pastels
and then other pastels and then bright colors
and then alongside markers I also use gel pens
these are 0.38 tips pens from Muji.
I like to have different colored pens for different uses
I just have the standard black blue and red
And then also I like to have a ruler
This is a six inch ruler
and this just helps me get those straight lines
you can do freehand, but I don't trust myself
So these are all the materials that I need for my bullet journal system
Everyone has a different system
But if you don't know where to start this is where I start
so now that I've talked about my materials
I'm going to quickly break down my system.
So I do my bullet journal every month
and I basically get it all done in one day
It takes me about one to two hours to do
first I have my month which takes up two pages
and then right after that I have my habit tracker
I'm gonna mention real quick that some of my bullet journal
was inspired by my friend amanda, amandarachlee on youtube
at first I didn't have a habit tracker or a brain dump or any of that but
she inspired me to add those because they're kind of useful actually
so shout out to amanda for the bullet journal inspo
she is literally a bullet journal queen
but after my months I have one page for a habit tracker
I track about nine to twelve habits
is that a lot?
for me no
and then on the page right next to the habit tracker,
I have a brain dump, which is basically a blank page
I just jot down ideas here
maybe like a grocery list
things I want to buy
songs that I found books i want to read all of that
it just goes in here
and then after my brain dump I go in with my weekly setup
I actually do all of my weekly setups in one sitting
just because it's so simple that I don't have to wait every single week to do it
I used to do that but out of efficiency I just do it all at once
You can definitely take it one by one and just do it every single week
and then after I do the weekly set ups
I reserve two pages for my reflections for the month
So this basically serves as my diary for the month
I only need two pages because I'm not writing something every single day
But if there's just one day where I just want to write down my feelings
I will
sometimes i'm a thoughtful person and I like to write my feelings down
so now that I briefly explained my bullet journal setup
it is finally time to actually do it
So the angle is going to change
I'll see you closer to my bullet journal
all right you guys now it's finally time to get into actual bullet journaling
here are my supplies
we're gonna get into this
for august I usually think of like red or green
but I already did green and I kind of wanted to try this nice coraly red color
so I'm gonna go with this
and then these colors are going to be kind of like the accents
I do like to have multiple colors
and then I also do need my gray mildliner
I like using grey because I like using grey
so my header usually takes up two lines because I want that font to be big
So I'm going to just do two lines there
and then I'm gonna write out august 2019
is that how you spell august
I like to write the marker first then I'm just gonna finish it off
it's a little crooked over there, but that doesn't matter
and then I'm gonna drag it out.
so it's just one long header. let's not mess up
there we go
and then with my black pen, I'm just gonna write August
I kind of like to add these hearts to make it look like tiny washi tape
you can also use a symbol for August but
I like hearts
now I'm just going to write out august
And there we go, I'm just going to make it a little fancier
kind of looks like a nice little watercolor effect
that's why I like these markers
now we're going to move on to the tedious part, but it's relaxing for me, which is the lines
So I'm hoping my explanation for lines isn't too complicated
basically the days take up one line
each day's box is 1 2 3 4 5 6 so 6 rows by 6 columns
And then I add 1 2 3 4 5 weeks
because there are typically five weeks in a month
I'm just gonna check real quick. How many days are in August
yes, it's August 6. yes i'm doing this late
is that a problem? no
so fortunately there are five weeks in the month
sometimes a month will have six by accident
but for this month we have five so that's what we're going to do
I'm just gonna have my phone kind of here
So right after my header, we're going to skip a row and then go on
basically one two three the third line you'll see right here
I'm just gonna mark it with a dot
and then I'm going to the last dot over here
we're not going to cross over that's going to look messy
we're not adding anything here
we're going to kind of just separate it
the row for the days is only one row
and then after that one two
three four five six
Five six, yes, and then you'll have four rows on the bottom
and then one two, three four five six
perfect and it ends right here
so this is going to make Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday
I start my weeks with Sunday some people start with Monday
And then that is Thursday Friday Saturday.
so we have our month laid out
So here we go. No pressure
also, if you do know how to free hand go for that
but I do not trust myself
and I want my lines to be nice and straight
we're going to go for it
there we go
I really should not have had coffee my hands are shaking
we're going to do the same thing over here
be careful not to go all the way
because this is only three days
so it's going to end right here
we're going to have this blank space for our goals and future
And then one final line
kind of makes me nervous that nothing's gone wrong yet
messed up a little bit but it doesn't matter
and now we have our calendar
it's seven by five
now back to our markers
we're going to fill two boxes with a color
just like that right in the center
and now I'm going to add a line here and then a line here
and this is going to be our goals and future section
and then on the bottom here with gray
I'm just going to add another little section
here I just like to put in my youtube
and then for the days I'm going to go in with my markers again
and then make little marks for the days
and on this first corner box I'm going to use gray
then there's a little space for the date
this is going to be where the number is
so I like using gray because these days are not part of August
so I'm not going to use a coral-red
and now we're going on with red to do the rest of the numbers
There we go
It is literally the most simple thing
but here it is
now that it has dried a decent amount
We are going to write the days
so from July we have the 28th and then the 29th
and now we start with the first
now I have this little blank space here
and that is where I add a little key or a legend
one is for friends and family
one is for YouTube one is for event/important
so for this month, I'm not going to use these colors
I'm going to use what was available here
so I'm going to use these three colors
I think they are cute
and can you like stay in there, please?
so this is my little key for the month
and you could add more colors for different things you need, but personally
I only need these three to track
but as you can see if it's a birthday i underline it with that color
I am going to kcon on this day
and then this day and this day I'm coming back
and I think for this I'm just going to kind of do it like this
what else did I have going on in August?
I can't really think of it up on top of my head
but this is what my month looks like
It's very simple
but it gets the job done
next we are moving on to the habit tracker
now this part is extremely tedious
now because I did my July setup so late
I didn't fill anything out
but I did at least want to do it
so I have an idea for August
for my habit tracker I track YouTube, Instagram, exercise
vitamins, iron, walking my dogs, watering joonie,
skincare and studying Korean
track whatever habits you want
but this is what I'm going to do
I like to make these boxes for the month as well
personally this is what I like for my eye
so we have four dots and four dots here
skipping a row
and then we're going to write habit tracker
hopefully this fits nicely
nice and symmetrical
so that is our header
going to just make this a little fancy again
I am going to breeze through the step
but basically we're making seven by five boxes again
And then we're making these simple rows for the headers of our trackers
so hopefully you guys will figure out the spacing
but basically I'm skipping one column
and then going in with seven columns here
and then I'm skipping two columns
seven, two
seven, skipping two rows
you'll figure it out
but I am going to fast forward through this part
and there is our little habit tracker
it's so cute
you guys if you guys know how to free hand please do that
there we have our habits
so we are canceling out these days
And then just to emphasize that these days are not being used
we're going to cross them out
now I will show you how I actually use these habit trackers
today is the sixth
so we are on this day
so I uploaded a video on this day
I'm gonna add a dot there
I think that's good for now
so this was our brain dump
it's literally a blank page
but we are going to add this header
and this is literally the easiest page
just leave this blank
you will fill it up throughout the month
now we are doing our weekly layouts
and this is a horizontal weekly spread
we're going to steadily freehand this
so that basically means we're going to skip eight
and then here is the next day I hope
So one two, three, four five six seven eight nine
nine, yes, okay. We're going to continue
god can I make straight lines, please?
oh my god i moved the camera
And that is one week
it is very simple very practical
so we're going to write the day first
I like to make each letter take up a column. So Sunday
so sunday
comma space
and then this is July 28
so it would have made sense to make these gray, but that is okay
and this is basically what I do for the next few weeks
so we finished the five weeks of august
jeez there are so many weeks
we are going to finish with our reflections
and this again is very easy
we are just going to make our simple header again
ahh i keep moving the camera
i'm not-
this is why I'm not a bullet journal channel
august reflections!
now these are just two blank pages
and you can just write whatever to your heart's content
kind of make this like a personal little diary
so that it's not all about just tasks
and then after each month if I just want to add pages of random stuff
there's plenty of space to do it
before the next month
for instance after july
I wanted to make a page on my Enneagram
and so that's what I did because I had space
and then I moved on to August
I guess as an example I will plan out my day today
so first off we have a task
and my first task I guess was
I guess I'll put walking my dogs
although this isn't really a task
I do this every single day
so I don't have to remind myself
and because I finished it, with red I'm going to check it off
I like having a checkmark system
there we go
so that task is done
ooh I do have to change my license plate
I will write that down
film bullet journal video
let's say for instance i wanted to film another video on the same day
but I didn't get around to doing it
because I got tired for some reason
let's see
because I didn't do it today
I'm just going to cross it out
maybe I should have crossed it out with red
but you got the point
and then of course I can plan in the future
so on this day I want to upload a video
so upload bullet journal video
hopefully I can get it up on Wednesday
If it's up on Wednesday, this is right
and then if you just want to write random notes
I just like putting a bullet point there
package came
and then a smiley face
because I've been waiting for this package
and then you could add something for the future
I like to use an exclamation point
sometimes I like to do hearts as well
another smiley face
I just like to add whatever I want
but I did film a bullet journal video someone check this off
and then if I have a reflection
then I will write it down
for instance I'm going to reflect on today
sometimes I like to write down the time just because
if I'm reading this in the future, I don't know
I want to see what I was thinking at that time
and that's my reflection for that day
and then I can add on to it whenever
so now here is my entire bullet journal setup
here is my month
I have my habit tracker my brain dump
I have my weekly layouts which are extremely simple
and then after all that I have my August reflections
and then if I have pages that I want to make
there are plenty of pages for that
and then eventually I will start my next month, which is September
and then after a long one to two hours
you are finally done with your bullet journal for the month
I warned you guys this is very simple
very minimal
but it has helped me for the last few months
And so this is the system that I stick by
also I am highly caffeinated right now
my hands and body and brain were like shaking during this entire video
but we got through it
It really is a relaxing process to do every month
just taking the time to get your life together
plan out what you have in the future
see what you've done
and it's great for my brain cells
but I hope that this was useful for you
especially if you're starting out with a bullet journal
I used to be afraid of bullet journals back in high school
I would try to keep one
but I would over complicate it and not be consistent
but when I was in college, I used a bullet journal almost every single day
I kind of lived by a bullet journal
and I still do especially after college
you still have to figure your life out and all that
whether you like a minimal style
or whether you like a complex beautiful one
full of doodles and all that
I hope that you enjoy bullet journaling
and I hope that it actually helps you
find a system that works for you
and don't be overwhelmed or underwhelmed by a bullet journal
it's there to just help your life
thanks for watching and bullet journaling with me
and I will see you in my next video!!
goodbye my friends :)
