Hello everyone! My name is Aapthi Nagesh, and I’m a first-year student at UC Santa Barbara! I recently graduated high school during the COVID-19 pandemic, which brought down my mental health, as well as my productivity. To help fix this and get myself back on track, I began bullet-journaling as a way to plan out my days and get out my frustration.

According to Amanda Garrity and Lizz Schumer from the blog Good Housekeeping, bullet journaling is “equal parts day planner, diary, and written meditation” and it “turns the chaos of coordinating your life into a streamlined system that helps you be more productive and reach your personal and professional goals.”

My favorite part about bullet journaling is how versatile it can be. You can add spreads that help you, remove ones that don’t, and personalize every aspect of it. After trying out a multitude of different spread ideas, I decided to create this website to rank which ones I liked the most and which I didn’t particularly care for. My word isn’t the end-all-be-all, of course, so I recommend that anyone who’s interesting in bullet journaling to try out the spreads yourself to see what works for you!
