The Bullet Journal: Old School Meets the New Age

Germ U short courses are learning experiences that will enrich your life on even the busiest of days. They take under fifteen minutes but are worth a lifetime of thought. Are you always searching for the perfect organizational system? Creative people have creative lives, and sometimes it’s hard to find the best system to organize all that awesome. In this week’s short course, Ryder Carrol introduces us to the Bullet Journal System. It’s a combination art journal, calendar, task list, and project planner that you can make yourself. For great ideas about how to design and organize your bullet journal, search “bullet journal” on Pinterest.

R. Shannon Duval is a Ph.D in philosophy, Fulbright Scholar, second degree black belt in TaeKwonDo, and a national champion in kali arnis.  Known as "The Wonder Ninja" for her dual careers in philosophy and martial arts, Germ's Educational Director (and Consulting Editor of Germ U) has traveled to lands far and near, and has discovered that while the pen is mightier than the sword in all of them, swords are still an awful lot of fun.  She loves playing hide and seek in things that are bigger on the inside than the outside, simultaneously wielding distinctions and edged weapons, and pondering the original nature of snowmen.
