For today’s post, I’m doing something a little different. It’s not entirely bookish-related but I wanted to share with yous a side-project I’ve been getting up to recently.
At the beginning of February, I saw a quick “plan with me” tutorial for a February design for a bullet journal. I’ve always seen people talking about them on Twitter and the like but never thought it would be something for me. I always thought I wouldn’t have enough dedication because it looked like it took years to keep up.
But anyways, I saw the plan with me tutorial and instantly loved it. I copied it out into a journal, equipped with a mood and habit tracker, a monthly planner, and a day-by-day planner too. Seen as I really liked keeping it up, I had a little look on Youtube at other people’s Bullet Journals, and I made one for March that I’m super happy with because it’s much more accustomed to myself. I just thought I’d show you it in case anyone was thinking about taking up this wonderful hobby.
Mood & Habit Tracker
I really like these pages because at the end of the month I can see the lows and highs of the month, but as well my Habit Tracker keeps me motivated to do the things I love more often. Who doesn’t like checking things off a checklist?
Expenses & Tasks
I feel the expenses page is going to help me with my saving for my holiday at the end of July, because I really need to cut down on spending money every week. As well as that, the tasks page is going to be great because it’s just a general overview of the things I need to do during the month and it saves me forgetting anything!
Where I can write down any important dates!
I forced myself to take a little break from writing after I finished my last book at the end of November last year, but now that I’ve recently hit 10k on my next one, I’m a lot more motivated and ready to hit the ground running. These two pages are a calendar with my writing goals. In dark green is what I’m aiming to write each day and in light green below it is what my WIP’s total word count will be. And Our Unfinished Symphony in the top right corner is the title of my WIP! (More of that to come when I do my next Writing Update sometime this month!)
I told myself to be a lot more focused on my blog this month since it’s been severely lacking since the beginning of the New Year, so I figured I’d throw in another calendar where I’ll plan and schedule all my posts.
This is definitely a section accustomed to me because I’m going to use this calendar to write down what episodes of each show I watch from day-to-day (because it’s usually quite a lot!)
Individual Day-by-Day Planners
And finally, we have my day-to-day pages where I can plan out everything I need to do that day. I had a blast with my Bullet Journal I used in February so I’m so excited to be working towards another one this month!
I hope you enjoyed this post, and, please, let me know in the comments if you’d perhaps like to see a post like this every time I make a new month’s layout for my bullet journal because it’s definitely going to be something I’m continuing!!
