When I first started bullet journaling, I was pretty content with sticking to Ryder Carroll’s rapid logging system. I experimented a few times with weekly spreads over the years, but always found myself always coming back to rapid logging as it was the most efficient method for me, both in regards to space and time in an A5 or smaller journal.
In my current journal, I have used rapid logging on occasion, but I have found myself much more drawn to utilizing weekly spreads, perhaps due to having more space on the page in this journal than I have in the past.
After many experiments, I’m excited to share with you 6 different weekly spread designs. Keep reading to find some ideas for your next weekly spread!
Today we’re going to take a look at my bullet journal setup for May! I know I’m a bit late, but as they say, it’s better late than never! Read on for details, photos and video of this simple yet highly functional layout.
It’s been quite a while since I’ve shared about my bullet journal on this blog, and this will also be the first time I’ve shared this bullet journal here since I started using it! Today I’ll be going over my set up for April. I’m really pleased with how it turned out, and the theme is so perfect for spring. Read on for more details and pictures!
I had originally planned on sharing a blog post at the start of the year detailing all of my goals for 2020 and my perfect plan to execute them throughout the year. I had gone through a really intensive process to outline each goal and the steps needed to complete them during December of last year in preparation for January 1st. My goals were lofty, my timeline was strict, and I thought I was ready to tackle anything. But if you read my previous blog post, you know that things haven’t been working out according to plan. If the corona virus has taught me anything, it’s that life is truly unpredictable. So I have taken some time to reevaluate my goals and decide on what is really important to me. I have chosen to remove most of my deadlines, lighten up on some of the more difficult tasks, and I feel a lot better about my goals in general. Read on if you are interested in finding out what my goals for the rest of year are!
In 2019, I made a goal for myself to read 12 books over the course of the year. For some, this may seem like a rather low bar, just one book a month. But it’s been so long since I’ve read consistently, so I wanted to start off slow. I was worried I wouldn’t make it, but in the fall I signed up for a library card at my local library and my motivation to read was reignited. I found new ways to incorporate reading into my daily life and I was able to meet my goal, right at the end of December with just a few days left to spare. Read on to find out what I read in 2019!
So we’re a good chunk of the way through January already, but I thought it would be a good idea to look back over my 2019 goals and see how far I got before moving on to my new goals for the new year.
Last year, I made two separate lists: one list of “intentions,” or goals that I felt couldn’t quite be quantified or measured, and one list of “goals,” which turned out to be a lot more like a bucket list. Since then I’ve learned a lot about how to properly design and plan goals, so while I wasn’t able to accomplish much last year, I am hoping for a lot more success in 2020.
Without further ado, let’s dive into the two lists and see how I did!
Happy New Year! We have officially entered into a new decade! Some people don’t find this to be a particularly important fact, but to me it seems rather momentous. It strikes me that 80 years from now, a new generation will look back at what we wore and what we listened to as a moment in history, the same way we look back at the flappers of the 1920s. So I guess we better make this decade something to remember!
Yesterday, I registered for the TOPIK II. With only 3 months left until the exam, I have a lot of studying and preparation to do. While I usually do most of my planning and listing in my bullet journal, I thought it would be nice to use a separate planner to track my daily studies and keep me focused for the next few months. During my last trip to Tokyo, I picked up a really lovely study planner which I will be showing in today’s post.
