Love Me, Love My Bullet Journal

Remember when I used to hate-watch Bullet Journal videos last year?

Bimonthly Goals: July to August

(A glimpse into the future.)  Now that I’m back from my break, I’d like to talk about a few things that I’ve learned about myself in the last two weeks.  I decided to start with a Bimonthly Goals post because I needed a fresh start after the disappointment I faced last month. It goes without saying that I didn’t meet
