Bullet Journal 101

You’re probably wondering what this is. Or you already know about this, and you’re checking out my version of it.

So, I’ll get to it directly. Stating the obvious, the Bullet journal, is a Journal, but better than “a journal”. Typically, a Journal is defined as  “a daily record of news and events of a personal nature or a diary.”, but a bullet journal, is a journal that does more than that. It helps you organise your events, tasks, and appointments, very well with your own personal touch.

A bullet journal is something that you can personalise to your will, but there are some ground rules to it, though, it’s your wish to break them, again, ’cause rule breaking is fun, isn’t it?

Typically, a ‘BuJo’ consists of:

  • An Index
  • A Future Log
  • A Monthly Log
  • A Weekly Log
  • A Daily Log.
  • Trackers
  • Quotes

I’ve been Bullet Journaling for about a year. Looking, at the idea, I immediately fell in love with its concept. I’m a typical teenager with mood swings, so I can get super organised, or super disorganised in the blink of an eye. BuJoing has certainly helped me be organised, and seeing other people’s ideas and sharing, everything about it was fun.

You’re probably super confused about all the ‘logs’. Allow me to break it down.

Firstly, you have to pick a notebook. Any notebook would do. Literally, any notebook would do. Some preferences you might want to look at are:

  • At least about 200 pages
  • A Dotted/ squared notebook. (I really wouldn’t recommend a ruled one, but again it’s your notebook, so your say.)
  • Typically, people would use the Leuchtturm1917, or the RhodiaWebNotebook of A5 paper, but seriously, just any notebook that you’re comfortable with would do.

2018’s Bullet journal.

For 2017’s I used an unruled notebook of about 300 pages. For one thing, do not use a diary. Like, I’ve seen people use it, and see then get frustrated and stop midway, so it’s not a great idea.

Moving on, open your notebook and smell that ish. Aah, the smell of a new book. Now grab a pen and write your name on the first page. and some extra details of your own. For example, I wrote a poem of Noor Unnahar’s that tells me how much potential I contain. Then, you will need to write your ‘Key’. This will be a set of symbols, which you will be using for your journal.

Now, skip about two pages (this’ll be your index) and gear up for some real art work. Grab some markers and welcome 2018. ‘Hello 2018’ or your ‘Goals’ or some inspiring stuff like ‘The year of Shash’ (get the ‘The Middle’ reference ;)).

2018’s welcoming.;)

After this is done, you do the future log. The future log, is for making a note of your future events and appointments. Sketch out the calendar for the year, and mark  birthdays, and other upcoming events, as they come by.

Now, for the index. Start marking page numbers , at the right bottom corner. Start page one from the future log. and go on. You will need to mark it with your hand or get a book that already has page numbers.

After the future log, get started with your monthly log. your monthly log consists of, a spread of the month, where you can note down events, for the following month.

monthly log

Next, comes your weekly log. Your weekly log is an overview of the week. Here, you can merge your daily and weekly log, allowing you note down your tasks as well as events, for the day, and also review your week.

a daily log I tried, it went quite well, and helped in better organisation

I only use the merged version of weekly/ daily log, because I generally don’t have a very elaborate day, but if you’re a busy person, you might wanna consider using the daily log to plan better .

Then, come the trackers, Your trackers can be to track literally anything. Habit tracker, Water Consumption tracker, Spend tracker, Books you’ve read, Movies you’ve watched/ wanna watch.  You can draw out these trackers next to your weekly log, or monthly log or track on a daily basis too.

a study tracker I made.

Trackers are a great way to become more organised. You can add inspirational quotes, poems, or even some thoughts and feelings of your own. I sometimes write my own poems in my BuJo, like this one below.

So, that’s all I got. Remember, this is your journal and feel free to doodle, paint, brush letter or do it the neat scheduled way, just give it your personalised touch. Also, if you did try out the BuJo, you can share how it went with me 🙂

Pro Tip: If you wanna share how your BuJo went, to all, you might wanna consider sharing it on you social media, especially Instagram, where you get to see other people’s works too. You can also find mine!



Five Hobbies That You Can Develop As A Teenager.

Being a teenager is fun, you know there’s friends to hang out with, fun things to do, and then, there’s school too. Whilst all this there are so many skills you can develop that’d be fun.

So here, I’ve made a list of stuff that’d be fun to do as a teenager!


Photography is fun and I think clicking pictures that’d last, would be very fun. Being a kid, I hated being pictured, but now I enjoy both picturing others and being photographed myself. It’s just fun, being able to discover your aesthetic, artistic, and creative sense! You can peep my Instagram for some photography.


Are you hungry yet?


That’s me being creative, and trying to picture some biscuits like macaroons. Also, Fingernail game on point. *note the sarcasm*

2. Calligraphy

Learner and Doer of Calligraphy, personally Calligraphy is my stress bust for the day. I just like moving all those delicate brushes through the paper to bring out some beautiful piece of handwriting. It’s just something that one can never stop to develop.


That’s a blending fail.


This is a good one though. Again, fingernails are ugly.

3. Mandala drawing, Zentagle, Doodling

All these three are something that’ll make you creative beyond limit. At least that’s what I believe in. They’re super fun to do and something that you weave on the spot. I’ve started off with these quite recently, and find it extremely enjoyable.


My first ever Mandala. Dear Mandala experts, I’m in for some criticising. There’s millions of ways I could improve.


I know you’re all like, “No! That’s for kids!”, but as far as it’s concerned, even adults can try it. It’s just fun, and a great way to play with paper.


Here’s this cute origami bookmark that I made!


And this one, by my brother! You can find the tutorial here.

5. Music/ Poetry/ Writing

I know they’re all different things, but honing just one of these skills is going to fun enough, and enjoyable, and turns out I’m into all of these.


That’s some poetry by me.

Also, I’m writing something on Wattpad!

The poet.

 “Our hearts are caged, 

and are banging on cell doors​, 

to be let out free, 

to live fulfillment,

and freedom,

to live of love,

to live of rage,

Of colors,

Of fire,

Of magic.”

A tip for over thinkers.

Are you SiCk anD TiReD oF OVerThiNking? Well, here’sthe solution for you…

Just kidding.

Well, yeah I do have a solution, but not for stopping it. For reducing it and being more reasonable about what you think. Or rather, OVerThiNk.


Music is the key. 

Put on headphones and start studying, and you will procrastinate. And as you procrastinate, start thinking about how shitty your day has been. Whatever music it may be, it’s gonna make you feel better.

If it’s Happy, it will give you good vibes and you know, get you to the positive things that happened today.

If it’s Sad, well, just cry it out. Make sure you have some tissues and some ice cream and the Air Conditioner switched on for extra effect. And if you’re a writer, take your journal and write poetry, or just write about the day with maximum profanity.

It it’s peppy, turn up the volume to the highest and jump around your room like a lunatic, well, at least till the neighbors complain what a noisy vermin you are. Or, just start laughing as though your crush just told you a joke. Yeah. I mean, just fake it. Laugh till your stomach aches, or until your younger brother comes to check on you if you’re okay.

Or if you want extra extra effect, complete all your work and go to bed like super early. And then, put on headphones and think. Or you could do the following things:

  • Cry silently
  • Scream into the pillow
  • Cry loudly, and wait for everyone to burst into your room, and then when they ask why, tell them “Nothing.” with a dramatic sniff.
  • Orrrrr, best of all. Take your phone and text your friend/ mom aaand …Rant your butt off. 

The last one has a lot of bonus points, especially if it’s your friend. Cause now they know what a cry baby you are.😂😂

Disclaimer: This blog has been written with a lot of humor. But that doesn’t mean it’s a joke. It’s just humor- ised so my readers can have a good time. And also, follow these without any shame.

 Also, to make you feel better, I do all of these. Be rest assured.


26 puns that are kissable.

You know you’ve failed life when you realize that you have failed to write a pun blog. And be rest assured, puns aren’t simple jokes that you just laugh at and move on. They’re beautiful jokes that are modified to make sure, they have two or more sides to them. 

If you know me well, you’d know that I have a spiritual connection with them. And I can relate to them on the highest spirituality level as possible. So, you have the authoritative stamp by the queen of puns. (Yes, that’s me.)

I know that’s a bad pun. I hope you can bear that.😉

“I know ju lying. It ain’t here yet.”

Gloomy days argon. Chemistrical puns are here​.

I energy. Positive energy. OMG. I PROTON.

What happens when you fart in an art gallery? It becomes a fart gallery.😫😂

Ran ran go away. Come again another day.

Can you change your mind, before getting a brain transplant?”

Are you stoned?

Then the dentist advised him to go to Mt. Brushmore.

Sure. Ring ’em up

And I love you a latte.

But they’re also down to earth.

And he’s getting roast.

Justin Bieber be like “What Do You Mean?”

Ice cube be like, I was water before, I just got cooler.

Don’t be shelfish.

Her voice was horse.

The pen said “You have a point.”



And then the noodle shouted “You IMPASTA, get outta here before you get roasted.”

Dab some soap into your hands and clean ’em up!

“I feel- HIC!- woozy and- HIC!- cheezhy.” said the cheese.


Dumble Door


AANNNND….*drumroll* I love you guys a latte. Have a good daytrogen.


13 Reasons Why ’13 Reasons Why’ is simply badass.

I’ve recently been binge watching 13 Reasons Why, and I have also finished on the book and I find it very intriguing. So, here I’ve put together 13 Reasons Why the storyline is BADASS.

  1. It spreads awareness, and educates people on why suicide is not a way to end problems.
  2. You can sure do some reality checks.  To all those people wondering, I think it’s quite realistic about the world out there. 
  3. Revenge. Well, I don’t think revenge is a bad thing. Hannah’s​ comeback was probably the best thing to do after such torture.
  4. Clay Jensen. For nerds like me, I think Clay Jensen would be a kindred spirit of mine. 
  5. Friends. Its important to choose friends carefully, whom you can have faith on and you know will be by your side at all time.
  6. Don’t believe people. People are mean. It’s completely fine to step back at times and watch before you bring them into your close circle. (Yeah, I mean Justin Foley.)
  7. Move on. Like how Mr. Porter put it, sometimes it’s just about moving on with life, you can’t just dwell on problems.
  8. Those memes. It’s simply awesome that you can also get to the humourous side of the story by chewing on these memes.
  9. Season 2 is coming!! I mean, who doesn’t want another season to watch?? Some stories are so beautiful that you’d never want them to end.
  10. Okay. Let’s be honest. I partly fell for it because Selena Gomez was producing it. And that, sure enough lured many people into this.
  11. The music is awesome. Like totally, I’ve been keeping its soundtrack on repeat for a few weeks now.
  12. The cast of Thirteen Reasons Why. They were amazing, playing those characters so well and really bringing out all emotions. Frankly, at the end, I was almost in tears.
  13. Mystery. Who doesn’t like mystery?? It was a gripping one, with enough elements to keep people going through right to the end.

You’ve changed.

He stared in the mirror. Three years. Three whole years had gone by. She’d gone missing by doing what he was doing now.

She’d stared into the mirror intensely. Thinking of all the hate she’d gotten that day. Her friends, her teachers, bullies, so much to put up with when you’re a teenager. And then, the next moment she’d just gone. Disappeared. She didn’t get sucked in or anything. She’d simply disappeared. 

He was her only true friend. He was devastated when he found she went missing. He’d tried doing the same thing almost a million times now. He thought he’d at least join her. No. It didn’t happen again. She was gone, probably for her own good. 

He just stood there crying. ‘Why did such stuff happen to people with the truest, kindest, and most beautiful hearts?’ he thought. ‘Probably for the good’ said someone familiar. 

Once he’d turned, something had struck him. He just stood there shook by his visuals. What was he seeing?? He stumbled up and touched the image.

Yes. It was true. She was back. Back, like nothing had happened. No change. She didn’t look any older. Just the same as she left, just more wiser. 

And then, they hugged, like there was no tomorrow. They cried tears, though they were out of joy. “Why? Why did you leave?? Where did you go??” he asked wiping away his tears. “Somewhere new” she said.

“What is new?” he asked. “New is new. Some change.” she replied. “She’s hiding something.” he thought. She raised an eyebrow as though she’d heard that.

“I’m not leaving you until you explain probably.” he said. “I have my restrictions.” she replied and got up to fetch herself a glass of water. “What’d you mean restrictions?? I’m your friend. You have to tell me. You don’t know what’s been going on here.” he replied firmly.

She was different now. She didn’t seem to care what people thought about her, though she knew. “Coming for shopping?”she asked, as though she’d just come back from school. “Yeah. Sure. You just came back from a place you claim as ‘new’. I need explanations.” he said harshly. “Sure. If you wanna become like me too” she said and immediately seemed to regret it. “WHAT DO YOU MEAN LIKE YOU?” 

She came closer. “I went through something for being who I am now. Wanna join too??”she asked threateningly. And then I was standing in front of the mirror and staring at it too. I couldn’t stop myself. And then I’d just disappeared out of that place like she had. This time, she was with me. “I can read minds. I can persuade people to do what I want. Join me. I am boss now.” she whispered into my ear. “No. I ain’t coming with you.” I mustered with difficulty. That was all I could manage. She’d changed. I was going to too. 


If I were in Hogwarts..

“Wake up, you git!” Hermione scolded. I woke up and rubbed my eyes. “You came back into my dorm room again?? Who helped you with the password?” I scolded. “I have my sources. Did you get your essay done or not??” Hermione asked enquiringly. “DUH. Stayed up till 11, and completed it.” I replied sleepily. I am known for procrastinating, but I always get stuff done, no matter what.

“K. Coming with me for breakfast now?” “Yep. Gimme a minute. I’ll change.” 

We thudded down to the Great Hall, muttering about our tight schedule. It had been one year since I’d come into Hogwarts. Me and Hermione were best buddies. We were so alike we made people go,  “DAAAAAYYYUUUUM”. But then, there you go, we weren’t sorted in the same houses. I was a Ravenclaw. She was a Gryffindor. 

I mean, that’s ridiculous. How could she be Gryffindor??? She was practically a nerd (like me)and probably the most smartass person I’d ever met. Maybe, the Sorting Hat had gone bonkers, with so many years of hard work.

“See ya after breakfast!!” I muttered and went off to my table. Bah! I hated this. We could not move over to any other table. Your house, your table. You belonged there. You could possibly move over but, I think you might have to handle a couple of hours of detention with Snape. 

After breakfast, I went up to check on my schedule. Great, what a rotten day. Kicking off with Potions. And what’s worse? With the Slytherins!!! I grabbed my Potions book, a couple of quills, some parchment paper, and my bag of vials and left.

As I stepped out​, I tripped and fell headfirst sending my glasses askew. As I got up and brushed off, I heard Draco Malfoy snickering in the corner. I hated that dude. The fact that he was a Gemini too, infuriated me more than Snape or detention. 

I went into the dungeons and sat myself farthest away from Snape. This was the only class I didn’t prefer sitting in the first few rows. 

Luna Lovegood seated herself next to me. That girl, I’m telling you, is such a jerk. Yeah, she makes it look as the Ravenclaw dorm room is made of nerds, who prefer wearing Radish earrings and reading the Quibbler magazine. Nope, first of all, I didn’t like Radish, leave alone Radish earrings. Second of all, I had a better sense of fashion. Third of all, do you even call the stuff in Quibbler, something rational?? Hummphh, no way! 

Snape came in, swishing his black robes, and straight greasy hair. He sure needs a makeover, if he wants to date Lily. (Wait, I’m not supposed to know that if I’m in my first year of Hogwarts. Well then, who cares, that would ruin my joke. Let’s just assume, it’s the rumors, that’s circulating)

We were gonna make a Sleeping Draught today. Bah! I wouldn’t even need one for Snape’s class, it’s easier with him just drooling on about ingredients and how important it is to measure every freaking ingredient.

So yeah, I was just making the potion and then suddenly he was like “You rotten tomatoes. The essay. I forgot to get them from you. Could you please hand them over?” “Essay? What essay??” I asked Luna, who was swirling her potion dreamily. “Oh. Yeah. That one, the one about Veritaserum and it’s effects.” said Luna softly, picking out her parchment, tenderly to hand over. “Huh?? When did he say about it?” 

“Hmm, looks like Lovegood is having a very interesting conversation with her bench mate. Would you like to share it with us, Ms Lovegood?” “Umm. Yeah, sure. She seems to have a small confusion about the essay.” blurted out Luna. “And what may that confusion be??” asked Snape. 

That was all I could bear…I fled out of the dungeons, sobbing, probably knocking out several vials behind me.

I didn’t know where I was heading, but I just ran up  random stairs and headed down several, until I realized two things. 

a) I was lucky to still not have fallen off a stair, because the stairs were enchanted.

b) I was lost.

The stairs led further up, and the way I’d come, was a cul- de- sac! Well, I looked around to see if the place was familiar. Nope, no resemblance to any prior place I’d been to, in Hogwarts. 

I just went forward, hoping that my last words weren’t “When did he say about it??”. Umm, yeah, I went on, like forever, until a spotted a door mat lying in front of a flat wall. Ok, if I’d been in my senses, I probably wouldn’t have stepped on it. But, you see I was terrified.

I stepped in it and boom! I slid down a deep tunnel and then landed in a room. It had a cabinet. I opened it and found two books. “Break with a Banshee by Gilderoy Lokhart” it had the picture of a man with a huge smiling face handling a Brandon Banshee. The other one was ‘Advanced Potion Making’ by Libatius Borage. I flipped through both books. The book about the Banshee was really boring. However, there was some thing familiar in the other book. There were several notes made alongside the text. But then, there were corrections too. Lots of words had been striked out and replaced with the owner’s handwriting. The owner was, the ‘Half- Blood Prince’. I know, it hardly makes sense, but that’s what it said. 

Sighing deeply, I put the books aside, closed the cabinet and was about to sit down on the floor when a chair appeared. “Oh, great.” I thought to myself and sat down. I opened the Potions book again and found a chapter about Veritaserum. Oh good! I could probably complete my essay, but then, parchment, quills, I’d need that. And anyways, I’d probably get detention for a week with Snape for storming off the class like that. And, I’d never make it out of this room, probably. 

I found a bottle of water, and drank it, thinking of how I got everything I needed. And then, I found a stash of quills and freshly- smelling parchment paper. 

I decided to work on the essay. At least I could get some extra credit for potions maybe, when I die. After a couple of hours, I’d completed my essay. Now, suddenly I felt lonely and felt the urge to go back to my dormroom and get warm and snug. 

Then, something happened. The walls gave way and I found myself in a familiar corridor  in Hogwarts. Oh yeah, I was in the seventh floor corridor. Great, probably I could just sneak into my class. 

I grabbed the two books, my essay and left. I peeked into the dungeon. No Snape. No students. I sneaked in and found the cupboard. I kept the books and left. What a day! Phew!!

This is an imagination of how I’d be, if I were in Hogwarts. And BTW, my perspective is that I place the book in Snape’s cupboard and Harry finds it in his sixth year/ book: Half- Blood Prince. The room is the Room of Requirement, Duh. And the cabinet is the vanishing cabinet.And I know, you’re like you didn’t even use your wand, the whole time!! IDK, I didn’t feel the need to!! 😛


The glasses. (Chapter one)

I stood up and brushed the hair out of my face. I stumbled around for my glasses and put them on. I’d rolled off my bed.

‌I showered and dressed and headed down for breakfast. After breakfast, I decided to read a book, so I settled in my bed and started to read, and then, I dozed off, with the book in my hand. 

I woke up and rubbed my eyes. What was the time?? 2:00pm. What?? I’d started to read at 10:00am..I’d slept through for four hours…! No way! I wasn’t much of a sleepyhead! 

I rubbed my eyes and headed down. And then, I saw something​ and stopped dead in my tracks. It was something I’d seen before, no, I’d heard of it. I’d heard of it’s descriptions and it was exactly like how I’d imagined it to be.

It was a monster, from….GREEK MYTHOLOGY!!! It was a gorgon. But wait, this couldn’t be real. After all, it was mythology. And even if it were a gorgon, one of the three sisters, I should have turned to stone now.

I pinched myself. Nope, I wasn’t dreaming. My eyes could probably be deceiving me, I rubbed them and realized​ I wasn’t wearing my glasses. I literally stumbled up the stairs and put my glasses on. 

Nope, my eyes were playing tricks on me. There was nothing. No gorgon. No Greek  Mythology. And then, I forgot all about it, not taking it too seriously.

And then it happened again. I was running home, because I was really excited. And then I fell face down, gashing my chin badly and grazing my knees and hands badly. My glasses shattered and flew across the road. I slowly got myself on my toes and slowly limped home. And then, I saw it again. The gorgon was standing next to my doorway. I was already unstable and collapsed on the spot.

I woke up hours later, and found myself in my bed. My friend had got me back in bed. I slowly got myself up and looked around. There, my friend sat next to my bed squeezing my hands. And then, one more glance, there it was! The gorgon. It was back. It was standing next to my bookshelf and peering at the book I’d been reading the first time I saw it. 

That drove me crazy. I’d seen it twice. I screamed in horror, drenching the room with a shrill sense of excitement and horror. My friend, squeezed my hand so tightly, that I felt no blood running through it.

 “WHAT THE FREAKING HELL IS GOING ON???” she screamed into my ear. “That thing, it’s a gorgon… I see something..” I panted out pointing near the bookshelf. “THERE’S NOTHING OVER THERE.” she screamed back. I fainted, over again. 

I woke up the next day. I was alone. I stumbled around for my glasses. I always wondered why I had to wear glasses. I could see perfectly, even without them. 

I couldn’t find my glasses. And then, I remembered. My glasses, they’d fallen off, the other day and they were shattered. “Great. Simply great.” I thought. And then I stood up and collapsed. I slowly got back on to bed.

 I looked around literally swearing to myself, that one more time I saw a gorgon, I’d jump off the balcony. There you go. I did see it.

 Guess what?  This time it was sitting right next to me. It stared me in the eye. I just froze. Well, I don’t know if it was because she was staring , that I’d become stoned, or I was simply stunned and stoned.

The gorgon caressed my hair. I sat there gaping. I’d just fallen and bruised every part of my body,  and then my friend had fled thinking I was a mad woman, and then there was this gorgon here caressing my hair. 

I didn’t know what to do. Should I caress her hair too?? But what if the snakes lunged back..? I mean, her hair was just a bunch of snakes. “So, how are you my li’l sissy??” she hissed. “I’m as fine as possible. Though, I’m still weak.” I hissed back, but it wasn’t me. I wasn’t talking. Someone else was in there, in me, I wasn’t talking. 

“When you leaving this girl? I’ve had enough of her. Always screaming or over- reacting.” said Stheno​. I didn’t know how I figured her name, but I just knew it at the moment. “Gimme sometime. This girl has something up. She can see you when I ain’t awake in her soul.” I said back. 


 I could see without my glasses. I could see a whole new world, and I could stare Stheno​ in the eye without turning to stone. That wasn’t all. I probably had Medusa using me for something.

To be Contd.
