My June bullet journal spread
One of my hobbies is having a bullet journal. I used to love art in school so it has made me enjoy being artistic again. I haven't done art since Year 10 (2012) and I really loved it but I had to do food tech instead for Year 11 and 12. My theme for June is space/galaxy.
