I try to keep things around here pretty light, but also helpful. But sometimes, you gotta let loose, have a little fun, and laugh.
It’s been a rough couple of weeks around The Petite Planner Household. Sick kids, sick man (even worse), and all the spring cleaning guilt. Plus, I’ve added to my workload with a second blog and therefore second social media. The struggle is real, friends.
Anyone who thinks blogging is easy… well, introduce me to them so I can learn their secrets.
Anyways, today’s post is all in good humor. Tell me in the comments how many of these you can relate to.
19 Signs You’re Probably a Bullet Journal Junkie
1). You’d Rather Stay In on a Friday Night
The cocktails might be flying and the lights flashing a few blocks down, but nothing beats a fresh journal page and your favorite pen.
2). You Spend More on Pens Than Clothes
Because who needs nice clothes when you can sit at home in leggings and an old t-shirt and doodle your heart out?
3). You’ve Spent HOURS Drawing Succulents
It’s the hottest trend! Everyone’s doing it.
4). You Correct People when they Say Midliner
No, hunny! It’s Mildliner. *Double check packaging for the fifteen thousandth time*
5). Your Husband Has Blocked Amazon on All Devices
But you’re not sweating it because you still have Google, and Google will tell you how to bypass that shit.
6). You’ve Looked Up How to Pronounce Leuchtturm
Because if you’re going to be a bullet journal junkie you have to know how to say the name of the notebook you use, right?
7). You Know that Bujo doesn’t Have Any Relation to the Adult Entertainment Industry
I might sound like a dirty slang word, but it’s just a word for your notebook. This might be disappointing if you tell someone you want to show them a picture of your bujo.
8). Your Facebook Feed is Full of Pictures of Journal from all the Groups You’re In
Aunt Nancy got a new puppy? Well, you’ll probably never know because you’re too busy eyeing that habit tracker Jill posted five minutes ago that’s getting 100 likes.
9). When Ghosting Doesn’t Have Anything to do with Dating
Ghosting is bad no matter if your dating or journaling. I guess you have to pick your poison on this one.
10). There’s No Shame in Sharing Your Period Tracker with the World
The wonderful world of womanhood is fully embraced on pieces of paper daunting Shark Week lettered in bright red ink.
11). You Haven’t Posted to Your Personal Instagram in Weeks
Because you’re too busy creating and posting pictures of your bullet journal on your other Instagram account.
12). You May Have Forgot to the Do the Dishes
Because you were busy creating a cleaning spread in your bullet journal. Don’t worry, babe. I’ve got dishes and laundry on the list for Tuesday.
13). You’ve Secretly “Borrowed” Stickers from Your Children
I see you. I feel you. And I got your back. Your secret is safe with me.
14). You Know that Pens are Individuals, Too
Just because they are both 0.5 black fineliners does NOT make them the same pen.
15). You Get Very Anxious When People Borrow Your Pens
You watch every word they write, being sure they aren’t pushing too hard. Re-cap it! Okay, now give it back!
16). If You Were Playing Kings Cup and You Drew the Categories Card, You Would Say Brands of Pens
And you would probably win in the first round because everyone else can only think of Bic. Meanwhile, you have at least 20 brands ready to roll off your tongue.
17). A New Notebook Pretty Much Means a Fresh Start to Life
Everyone else is waiting for the New Year for their fresh start. You’re just waiting for your new Leuchtturm to show up from Amazon.
18). You’re Exceptionally Cautious of Anyone Drinking Near Your Bullet Journal
*Husband comes over oh so sweetly to give you kiss in the morning, coffee in hand, and you shield your journal like you’re in Game of Thrones*.
19). You Can Write Monday Better Than You Can Write Your Own Name
They say practice makes perfect.
