hello again, my reader friends.
how it came about
|some of my very favorite washi tapes|
|a monthly spread meticulously done by gluing sticky notes and papers in|
|my key and the future log that i never use|
trial and error
- about a month into my journal, i realized that i didn’t like using the future/yearly log and would rather look at my life on a month by month basis (rather than yearly). so yeah, i don’t use my future log anymore.
- however, my key was the first thing i created, and it still works for me very well. it’s one of my very favorite things about my journal.
- in my very first monthly spread (march, shown above), i included a little diary section to write a sentence about my day, but i quickly realized that this was not something i wanted to do everyday all year long. that’s something else that didn’t work for me. now, i just include a tiny calendar, goals, books read, and important dates (and of course aesthetic photos)
- as time went on, i started to include more pictures and visual elements. i really like the fact that i can add these!
|lots of visual elements wooooo. i love this spread.|
- my weekly spreads where i wrote down my daily homework, tasks, etc changed the most because i needed something structured but not too strictly formatted. it took a few tries but i think that i have it nearly right.
|a little too busy for me…i tried…|
|as you can see, i kept the “deadlines” box|
|to the left is the weekly spread format that i like the best currently. on the right is a study schedule i never finished…|
|examples of photos i might glue into a spread|
well, i don’t really know what else to say. these were just some little tidbits of info about my personal bullet journal, but if you want me to write a post about how to actually start your own, i will!
