November Bullet Journal Setup

Hey, everyone! It's time for next month's setup in my bullet journal. I can't believe that this is the second to last monthly bujo setup for 2016. But anyway, I don't really have much to say about this setup (it's pretty similar to last month's), so let's just get right to it!

What You Need to Start a Bullet Journal (Common Bullet Journal Supplies & Tools)

Hey everyone! Today's post is mainly aimed towards people who are new to the bullet journal community, especially people that haven't even started a bujo yet and are still deciding on how to go about this. In fact, I have just started a category of posts on my blog that would be good for bujo newbies in particular. Also, if you're a student and still on the fence about having a bullet journal, then here are several reasons why you should use a bullet journal if you're in school.

Anyway, as you can probably tell from the post title, today I'm going to be talking about what you need to start bullet journaling (and I kind of have two sets of answers for this question). Keep on reading!

How I Take History Notes (AP World History)

School is one of the biggest aspects of my life, so I wanted my blog to reflect that. Currently, my most difficult class by far is AP World History. It's the first AP class I've ever taken, so it's been a bit of a transition from anything else I've done before. There is a lot of information and work in this class, so taking notes is very crucial for me to do well. Social studies classes in general require a lot of memorization and just flat out knowing the material.

I've already taken a lot of notes so far in AP World, so I've gotten my note-taking system down pat. It may seem like quite a bit of work for some people, but the effort has paid off; I've gotten A's on everything in the class so far. In this post, I'll be elaborating on how I take notes for a history class in a way that doesn't require too much thinking (specifically WHAP, obviously), but I've rambled on enough, so let's get to it!

How My Bullet Journal Has Changed in 6 Months

This is a post that has technically been half a year in the making. As of October 1st, I have been bullet journaling for six months! In that span of time, my system has changed and evolved drastically in some ways (and marginally in others). In this post, I'll be talking about those changes that have occurred in the time that I've been using the bullet journal system.

First of all, I've documented all of my previous setups onto this blog. Read them if you want to get a more thorough idea of how I've changed things.
  • #1: April 2016: my first bujo setup ever!
  • #2: May 2016: as I was setting up April, I looked at some of the things that I was doing, and I immediately though, "Oh, crap . . ."
  • #3: June 2016: the transition from school to summer break setup
  • #4: July 2016
  • #5: August 2016: first setup in my new Rhodia Webnotebook, aka bujo volume 2, and going back to school stuff
  • #6: September 2016
  • #7: October 2016
Second, I want to say that my system will probably never stay completely the same. The beauty of the bullet journal is that you can change it to suit your needs. I know that my life will never be 100% stagnant and that there will always be new things in my life that will prompt a change in my planning system. Just like how my bujo is not the same as it was six months ago, it will most surely also be different in six months, in six months from then, and six months after that, etc.

With all of that out of the way, let's get on to the real meat of this post: how my bullet journal has changed in six months!

*Caution: this is a pretty picture heavy post, so be warned!
