2021 October Digital Bullet Journal Setup: A Cinderella-Inspired Theme!

October is almost here, which means Halloween is also on it’s way! Here in South Korea, we are finally transitioning into fall–we just had the Autumn Harvest Festival holiday last week, called chuseok, and recently the weather has turned rather gloomy and rainy. Before diving into Halloween festivities, I first had to set up my bullet journal to prepare for the upcoming month.

Autumn is Here, Once Again

Long time no see, once again! How many times have I started off a blog post exactly like this?? I’ll have to go back and count, because I’m sure it’s a high number. Anyways, here I am, back again, suddenly feeling motivated to write and create just at the turn of the season. I didn’t realize I had left this blog so stagnant this year. My last post was back in March! I actually meant to make a bullet journal post back in May–I made a header image for it and everything, but it never left my drafts, and now I guess it’s rather irrelevant.

March 2021 Bullet Journal Setup: Simple and Functional Ideas

How is it March already??? 2021 is really just speeding by. Today I’m giving you a peak into my March setup in my bullet journal. After a very decorative and whimsical February (check it out here and here) I decided to scale it back for March and keep the design really sleek and simple. I also flipped through some of my old bullet journals for inspiration, so some of my favorite functional spreads have made their way into this month’s setup.

Being Gentle with Yourself: 5 Cozy and Restful Self-Care Tips for Coping with Stress and Tough Times

Hi everyone! Time flies… It’s already the second half of February and I haven’t posted once since sharing my 2021 Goals and Habits. I spent the entire month of January off of work, just trying to focus on my goals and get as much done as possible. But as I mentioned in that post, I was constantly worried about how much time I had left and if I was doing enough. By the end of the month, I was so anxious about the time slipping away, and I was being so harsh and down on myself and my perceived lack of accomplishments, that I ended up not really enjoying my vacation time at all. I’m finally back to work this month (it’s still winter break at my school, but I have to teach English camp and desk warm) and after a bad mental health week, I decided that I needed to take a little time to practice self-care. Self-care comes in many forms, but I personally felt that due to my fragile state of mind, I needed to move slowly and be gentle with myself for a few days. Keep reading if you want to know how I practiced self-care during a busy week!

Happy New Year! Goals and Habits for 2021

It’s a new year! That means it’s time for the obligatory “new year, new goals” blog post. πŸ˜‚ I went about making my goals a little differently this time and I’ve already started working on quite a few of them. Usually when a new year rolls around, I feel really positive and hopeful, and full of energy and motivation. This year wasn’t any different, but now that I’ve had a chance to experience 2021 for a few weeks, the reality that some things still suck has kind of dampened my initial high spirits. Even so, I’m still very excited to share with you my goals for 2021, so let’s get into it!

Why I Am Still Staying Home

South Korea has been applauded by the media as one of the countries that has had great success in containing the corona virus. This is certainly true and I feel thankful that I am able to enjoy the benefits of the government’s efforts and affordable healthcare. However, even though our social distancing protocols have been relaxed, I will continue to stay home as much as I can.

6 Bullet Journal Weekly Spreads

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!
