Each day, I make sure to have a few things in each school log so I don't go a day doing nothing. I've talked about "no zero days" before in reference to fitness, but school and my degree are just as important to me now and I want "no zero days" to apply to my education too! If I don't have an assignment to work on or submit that day, I study and record it in my bullet journal for school.

Use fixed-width font to make sure the checked and unchecked widths are the same. This gives you:
