Since I was a little girl, I color code. It’s not only fun to play with the colors, but very helpful. Although, my minimalist and clean self is having a hard time putting in the bullet journal.
I have seen many people writing with colored pens for it, but that could never work for me. There’s waaaaay to many colors. I really enjoy a clean look, with no more than a 3-colour palette, and preferentially, pastel colours. Aren’t they the best?
So, I tried a system this week, color coding an external box of my tasks:
Results: still too much color. I’ll try another thing next week! Haha
But the nice thing is that I have a fixed set of colours that I can use in the timeline!
So, this is my very first post and I would like to introduce you guys to the way I do my bullet journalling. 🙂
Well, first, what is a bullet journal?
Ok, so now that you know, let’s start at beginning: the index. Nothing new here, just the regular index. I do color code it, because it will make it easy to differ the collections of the calendar and planning parts.
It is interesting to make this page if you are thinking about keeping your journal for many years – today you know where to find everything, but 5 years from now, you will have no idea.
I really like little calendars, they are super cute! Although, I don’t like that the dates are not in order (and yes, I have OCD). This bothers me a lot, so next time, I will try something different for sure.
So, these are the monthly spread I tested. I really enjoy the main one (which is the one on the bullet journal website as well), but the calendar is the one that I love. I won’t change it for some time, I’m sure.
The horrible part is that it takes too much space, so something that was in one page is now in two. Because MOLESKINE. I absolutely hate Moleskine. Their notebooks are way too small, the pages are too thin and the squared lines (the one I use) are too dark. This I can tell you: my next bujo it won’t be a Moleskine.
This is my weekly spread. I’m trying out different types now, as you can see, but I’m probably going to keep only one of them, mostly like the second one, because it looks so pretty *-*
I’m thinking of adding some study plan for every week on may. I’ve put it on the “to-do list”, but I find it very hard to spot when I’m consulting my bujo, so that’s something I’ll show you guys later 😀
So, these are the dailies I have used so far. I don’t know if I’ll keep them like this, because weeklies almost make them obsolete. It’s good to plan out the day and all, but I’m just not sure if this is space well used. If you have ideas of what else I could do in my dailies, please, leave a comment.
And that’s it! Hope you liked it. I’ll show my collections on some other post, so this is not too long. 😉
