I wanted to introduce you to my Bullet Journal and how much I love it. If you want to know what a Bullet Journal is, here it is.
I have been using a Bullet Journal for over two years, I found the process to be fun and very imaginative. I found diaries to be boring and plain, so when I discovered Bullet Journaling I was intrigued and started immediately.
Firstly, if you ever want to start a Bullet Journal, don’t fret over what type of stationery you need. All you need is a pen, a notebook and yourself. One of the things that I have realised about Bullet Journaling is that it is your book your creation. It took me a while for me to accept that because I tried different methods and after doing it a few times, I grew tired of it.
I wanted to show you what I had done for the month of August. The theme for August is Sailor Jupiter. I grew up watching Sailor Moon for years and I had found a planning video in which the Youtuber used her monthly theme by using the anime she had watched, and it inspired me to create my own one.
My title pages have always been collages, I find it so much fun to put a collection of pictures altogether and it gives the impression of the theme of the month. I get most of my pictures from Pinterest and it’s also a good place to get inspiration for the next theme.
My mood tracker has been one of the difficult things to do personally, I first started using a Mood Mandala and I loved doing it but I had struggled to do the mandala and gave up on filling it in. I loved finding different types of mood trackers on Instagram, Youtube and Pinterest and it gave me a big inspiration to do this month. I wanted to use the theme of Sailor Jupiter to contribute throughout the month and designed a mood tracker in the shape of Sailor Jupiter’s wand.
I’ve had a hit and miss when it comes to my habit tracker, much like the mood tracker I try to change things around to make it more interesting and sometimes I just like to go for the traditional style.
When it comes to reading, I wanted to do a tracker for it. I found some trackers but not a tracker for reading. I have always liked seeing how long I’ve read the book but also see how many days that I read it and the days that I don’t.
So when it comes to my weekly spreads I decided to do something very very minimal. Before I would make my weekly spreads by weekly (Obviously since it is called weekly spread) but I grew tired of it, I didn’t like looking back at my spreads and seeing nothing on the page. I had seen somewhere where you draw in boxes and fill them in for the days and I have to say I really liked it, I used it for the month of July and it was so much easier. It’s a good way to know what days I am in for work and for how long.
