New tool — bullet journaling

Today I went to a craft store when shopping with my mom. I found a 'dotted journal' on sale (20DKK) and without knowing much about the use of bullet journals I bought it!
All I know about bullet journaling is that it can be a useful tool for organizing your time/tasks and that some use it for ToDo lists.

From tomorrow I will officially be unemployed so I'll need something to fill the days with together with the job hunt. I'm afraid the days are just going to disappear and that I'll get less and less done each day. I have so many things I'd like to do and I hope having a tangible tool to help guide me will make it easier to accomplish​ them. My fear is that I'll lose momentum and end up rewatching all of Parks and Recreation or all the movies on my Netflix watchlist.
I see this time as a way to work on myself — I want to finish a bunch​ of projects and learn a lot, like play the piano, learn a new programming language and read some book. Maybe even become better at math and do some of all the Physics exercises I struggled with/never bothered doing during my semester at Physics 7 years ago.

I have great plans! I think the problem is that I'm extremely good at doing nothing while time passes. It's one of the things I'm an expert in, but that's not gonna help me get a job. I don't think that's a good thing to put on a CV...

If you have any experience with bullet journaling, any tips or DOs & DON'Ts please feel free to share them in a comment! I really have no idea how to do this or really what to expect from it.
