Bullet Journaling

With Michelle Fischer, Recruitment
Whether you need to get a better handle on your to-do list or want an outlet to relax a bullet journaling can help. But what exactly is a bullet journal? Think of it as a next-level diary for not only writing but also drawing. Instead of blank, lined pages, a bullet journal page contains sections to log daily to-dos, keep a monthly or weekly calendar, jot down notes, track both physiological and mental health, and record both short- and long-term goals. Come to the commons, grab a journal page, a marker, relax, and journal.
