If you have been following my posts for a few weeks, you may have seen my End of 2017: 7 Goals in 7 Weeks for 7 Days Challenge. To sum it up, I am challenging myself to something new every week for the remainder of the year. I can’t believe how fast these 7 weeks have been flying by! This past week I attempted the Bullet Journal Challenge. I was supposed to try to keep a bullet journal for a week… It was less than successful.
Although I didn’t spend as much time with my Bullet Journal as I meant to, I did still attempt to do a December monthly spread inspired by AmandaRachelLee. I did really enjoy doing this with a nice coconut milk cappuccino and my boyfriend by my side.
PS: A huge thank you to said boyfriend, who actually bought me this bullet journal off Amazon in anticipation of this this challenge! What a sweetie.
Doing the bullet journal provided the creative outlet and relaxation that I get from colouring in an Adult Colouring Book, yet felt much more productive!
I only did a couple pages, so I suppose it wasn’t a complete success, but we are only human and I’m not going to beat myself up over it too much.

These were the two spreads I did accomplish last week. Next year, I would really like to learn calligraphy and try my hand at keeping a bullet journal again. Hopefully, with practice, next time will go much better!
This week was a much needed reminder that you can only expect so much out of yourself sometimes. I am still happy with what I did get done, considering how busy I was with work, blogging and preparing for Christmas!
If you have never heard of Bullet Journalling, and you are a planning fanatic like me, I highly suggest you look up tutorials and graphics on Youtube and Pinterest! It is seriously addicting and some of the art I have seen is absolutely amazing!
