Bullet Journal List Spread Ideas

One of my favorite types of spreads to create in my digital bullet journal is list spreads. I find creating list spreads to be a creative way for me to compile my thoughts into so sort of order. Every list spread has a purpose, whether that be somewhere to make a to do list, packing list, or just a fun spread where I can be creative. In this blog post I will share some of my favorite list spreads that I have made in the hope of inspiring you for your bullet journal. As I mentioned I plan digitally using an iPad and the application  GoodNotes  and  Bargain Depot Stylus 2 Pack  from Amazon.

Bullet Journal Spreads For Book Lovers

If you have been following my blog for the past year, then you will know that I made a resolution to read and review a book for every month of 2018. When it came to organizing my book lists and my progress while reading, I had to create a few different bullet journal spreads for everything to do with books.

Since the basic idea of this spread is so simple you can easily make it your own my adding different plants or nicknacks to the shelf. You can also choose to color in the bo

October Book Review: The Bees

My Reasons For Reading This Book My mom read this book a few months ago and just raved about how imaginative and creative this book was and said that I had to read The Bees by Laline Paull .  Content of This Book This book follows the life of Flora 717 a sanitation worker, the lowest of the low in the ranking of the hive. It quickly becomes apparent that she is not like the other bees. As the book progresses trouble surrounding the survival of the hive. Flora begins entertaining her curiosity which starts to get her into trouble. But her qualities of strength and courage lead her to be able to help the hive in ways that a sanitation normally would not be able to do. Flora breaks the most scared law- questioning the Queen Bee's fertility. The hive is run in an ancient societal way in which everyone has a class or a ranking and the Queen is the only one who can breed. 717's adventures take her outside of the hive and into the really world where she is faced with challe

Tips For Slowly Going Paperless

Over the past few months I have become more and more interested in switching from paper to electronic. My reasons for doing this are due to the fact that I have learned from my courses ( I am an environmental studies major) of the benefits of using the technology that I have versus purchasing new notebooks or other paper products. In the following I will describe the small changes that I have made and any suggestionss of how you can do the same.
