Greetings bookish friends! Hooray! It’s my one-year-blogaversary! I asked my Instagram followers to ask me questions that they would like answered, so I have complied a list of some intriguing responses I received.

There were over 50 responses (thank you so much for all of the endless support 😊) but I will only answer 15 questions! I apoligize if your question wasn’t answered, but don’t worry, there will definately be more of these in the future if it’s something you’re intrested in!

Q1: What country are from? @bujo_kookie

A1: I’m from the United States and live in Southern California!


Q2: How old are you? @buttercupandbloom
A2: I’m a smol bujo bean at 13 years old!


Q3: What are your favorite pen/markers that you use? @zhoureflites
A3: I am obsessed with the Sakura Pigma Microns! They are THE BEST fineliners I’ve ever used!


Q4: If you were a literary character, who would you be? @lildots.bigplans
A4: I would be Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter — she has such an interesting personality!


Q5: What is your favorite and least favorite part about blogging? @avamcgovern_
A5: My favorite part is writing the blog posts and interacting with my followers! My least favorite is blog design…it’s so hard! 🤧🙌🏼


Q6: What stationary would you recommend for beginners of bujo and calligraphy? @carla.m.art
A6: The Tombow Fudenonske brush pen is an excellent “first” calligraphy pen. The crayola supertips are also an inexpensive but practical stationary tool for bujo — they come in a ton of different colors!


Q7: What’s your favorite animal, the one that you draw inspo from, how does that inspo come out in your life? @salmonstudys
A7: I love to draw bunnies! (I’m really good at it, and bunnies are just so cute!) 🥰


Q8: How do you decide themes for your bullet journal? @zaina.bullet
A8: I ask my followers what they would like to see on my Instagram stories, and do what they suggest or some variation of it.


Q9: When did you decide to start a blog and how long did it take you to make your blog? @avavanvoorst

A9: I first started blogging when I was 10 years old on a different blog called The Tweendom Kingdom. It was preety fast and easy to make that blog, and it had a pretty simple design. It took me a lot longer to design and perfect this blog! WordPress makes it fairly easy to do graphic blog design. This is a really in-depth question, so I will likely make a blog post about it soon if you want!


Q10: Do you really like books that much? Cuz same girl! @cinnajournals

A10: Asking me if I like books is like asking me if I like breathing…I need to do it to stay alive! 😂 Ok, that was pretty cheesy, but I do love books!


Q11: Do you use (habit, mood…) trackers in your monthly layouts? @vitti_notes

A11: Yes, I love using habit and mood trackers in my bujo spreads! Some months I forget to fill them out, and a lot of people in the bujo and study community don’t like them, but I often find them motivating!


Q12: What is your favorite type of blog post to write? @purelyolivia

A12: I love writing WISvsWIF blog posts (although I haven’t done one of those in quite a while) and posts about important topics! For example my earth day blog post.


Q13: Your inspiration in doing bujo? @thecpalettters

A13: I love calligraphy and doodling, and I think bujo is a great way to make working and being productive a lot more fun!


Q14: What is the hardest thing about having a blog? @margpcastbujo

A14: For me, the hardest thing about having a blog is staying on top of a consistent posting schedule! Sometimes life gets in the way of me writing a blog post when I should have, or occasionally I just plain forget!


Q15: Who are your favorite bloggers? @gracedoesblogs

A15: Ummm you? 😘 Grace you are literally such an inspiraion and a wonderful blogger! I also love Purely Olivia, The Ray of Sunshine Blog, Clara & Co, and A Purpose of Winged Dogs to name a few. But there are so many other amazing bloggers out there! Us bloggers work so hard! Kudos to all the brilliant, talented, and beautiful people who have the drive to run a blog. 😊

Colleen’s Questions

What’s the funniest word in the English language?

Schadenfreude, which means pleasure at someone’s bad luck or misfortune.  I just think it sounds interesting and it’s really fun to pronounce!

Screen Shot 2019-03-24 at 2.02.02 PM.png

What’s the funniest joke you know by heart?

What did the wave say to the other wave? Nothing, he just waved!

Yeah I know it’s not funny or anything but it’s the only joke I know.

If you could have a never-ending candle that smelled like anything you wanted, what fragrance would you want it to be?

I don’t like candles very much, but I do enjoy ocean breeze, freshly baked bread, and the aroma of fresh flowers.

What are you most looking forward to in the next 10 years?

I am looking forward to learning to drive a car, getting my own apartment or house, and going to college. I would also love to travel the world and go to numerous exotic destinations. If you have been reading my blog for a while, you would know that I have a fondness for globes and all things relating to traveling!

Would you rather go hang gliding or whitewater rafting?

Whitewater rafting! It sounds very exciting and I’ve always wanted to do it!

What was the best book or series that you’ve ever read?

Too many! Some of my favorites YA books are To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, The Hate U Give, and anything Rainbow Rowell…ya know, the basic stuff. 😉 I am also a huge fan of fantasy novels too, including anything Cornelia Funke and (obviously) Harry Potter.

What would be your first question after waking up from being cryogenically frozen for 100 years?

Probably something along the lines of ‘why am I here’ or ‘what happened’, I’m not really sure.

What songs have you completely memorized?

I have memorized Vienna by Billy Joel and Walt Grace’s Submarine Test, January 1967 by John Mayer. There are countless other songs that i have somewhat automatically memorized the lyrics to, but these are just off the top of my head.

Are you usually early or late?

If I have an intense/well-planned schedule that I can adhere to, I’m early. If I don’t, since I’m such a daydreamer, I will lose track of time completely. That’s why I love my bullet journal so much!

What would your perfect room look like?

No clutter, lots of cute clothes, and aesthetic. I don’t care what aesthetic, it just has to be aesthetic. 😂

Plan With Me: 2019 Bullet Journal Set​up

img-3211

It’s finally 2019!

Yay yay yay! I am super excited to share with you some of my bullet journal spreads for 2019! I got the Scribbles That Matter Pro for Christmas and so far, I am really liking it. It is a major improvement from my old bullet journal, as the pages are much thicker. I apologize for this post coming out so late, there’s just been a lot on my mind lately. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

For the cover page, I made 2019 in a black marker using the Tombow Fudenoske Brush Pen and adding some white highlights using the Sakura Gelly Roll White Pen. On the next page, my yearly view spread, I made a calculated risk to cover the entire page in black marker and use the white pen over it. I am happy with how both these pages turned out!

My future log is looking pretty blank now, but soon it will be filled up! This is a pretty easy and simple spread, and although it is tedious to write in all the dates for the months, anyone can do it. If you are trying to recreate this spread or something similar, I recommend stretching this spread out into two pages so you have more space to write.

Next, I have my New Years resolutions. Usually, I don’t set goals for the New Year, but I wanted to push myself to improve without it being stressful or me slacking off. So, I quickly made a spread for this! I think that writing it down on my bullet journal will be more effective than just saying I’ll do my resolutions because it will constantly remind me about my goals. Sometimes, we forget about our goals for the New Year, and they slowly fade away until we can’t even remember what they were in the first place. But this year, I promise that won’t happen!

And lastly, I have an almost blank spread where I can write down all the awesome memories and experiences that happen in 2019. Then, when 2020 pops out of nowhere, I can take a moment to sit down and reflect on the year that just flew by.
