For those who are like me and have a lot of weird dreams that you cannot remember later this is a great idea to do in your bullet journal!
April 8th // I finished reading The Secret History today and the ending was expected, yet unexpected in some way. Now, as always after finishing a book I’m left without a clue what to do next.
I decided to do a landscape of Bilbo’s Hobbit hole for this week’s spread and y'know what? For something done entirely with sharpies, and for someone who hates doing landscapes, I kinda like how it turned out.
I put the same task/event indicators on my monthly that I usually put on my dailies, because I don’t want to pressure myself to make a daily list every single day this month. I don’t think I’ll need it, I feel like some days this month everything I have to do will fit in this single line on my monthly page. So this month I plan to actually cross out or migrate each item on this monthly spread as I finish it or move it to a daily spread (or further down the monthly spread). As a bonus this will encourage me to pay attention to the task list and habit tracker on the opposite page, which I have been known to ignore if I don’t reference my monthly spread as often as I should.
I have a lot of time on my hands now that we are in quarantine and self distancing, so I might as well work on my bujo since usually I always complain I don’t have enough time to dedicate to my bujo due to all the “normal” obligations we fill our lives with…
So April’s weekly spreads and some lettering for a quote I find appropriate for the quarantine…
Please stay home if you can, stay safe, be carful and be kind to yourselves!
Okay, so if you haven’t read Red, White, and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston I wouldn’t read this post. Spoilers!
Basically, I saw a post on Instagram a few days ago and it was a bullet journal for books. I thought it was super clever and this morning at approximately 3:30am I began. It is now about 4:50am. I had a lot of fun making this as the first page. I spent about 45 minutes making this page (I think? Idk it gets weird with time this early in the morning). Anyway, I think doing this will really help me with keeping track of the books I’m reading this year and afterwards. Bye!!

April’s layout so far! Not sure what to do with the blank space in my week layout, since I ditched the “quote of the week” and “where did I spend my energy” tiles(quotes go on the front page, and a description of the day now goes IN each day block)
Anyway, spring theme :D

I went super back to basics for April. Extra room for task lists and ways to stay sane, and less room than I’d need in a regular busy month for the day by day breakdown.
I transferred my “staying sane in quarantine” daily checklist to my monthly from an earlier spread I posted, though the icons got a little smudged (whoops).

Working on my bujo’s week spread…
Ok I just realized I never posted my March spread. But do not fret, you didn’t miss much. It was basically the same as January and February.
a new normal: studying, sitting in the sun, animal crossing, & journaling
Realistic portrait practice !
