About Blue Paper Trail

Blue Paper Trail is a blog to share my journal. I’ve been journaling since my first year of college, but things took off during my seventh journal in August 2015, when I saw a video by Ryder Carroll on the Bullet Journal. It completely transformed how I saw what I thought was an ordinary thing.

Keep in mind, I’ve adapted some things from the Bullet Journal to make them more conducive for me, so feel free to adapt what I do or scrap it all together.

In 2016, I was lucky enough to be a grad student, an adventurer, and a full-time mechanical engineer. I got the chance to close the door on the fondest chapter of my life thus far (college), travel to far off places like Taiwan, the Pacific Northwest, and Colorado, and open the door to a brand new city, Chicago.

In 2017, life is much more of a blank page. I’m not sure what will happen, but I want to be inspired to make the most of it and to capture the memories — the heart-wrenching ones and the sweetest ones.

Besides that, I’m a proud Michigander and enjoy running, watching sports, reading, hiking, knitting, and mashed potatoes. Please leave a comment or contact me at bluepapertrailblog [at] gmail.com if you’d like to chat 🙂
