Plan With Me: April 2020 Bullet Journal Setup

Hello blogosphere! I’ve been really active lately on the blog, but I haven’t had the chance to showcase my April bullet journal spreads. My bullet journal theme for this month is water droplets and umbrellas.

I was inspired to choose this because it has been particularly rainy this past week, which is unusual for where I live. Typically, rainy days are my favorite; what’s better than captivating storm clouds and curling up to read a book? However, as I’ve been in quarantine for more than three weeks now, rainy weather is more dreary than dreamy.

Cover Page

Here is my cover page! I doodled a couple of umbrellas and water droplets surrounding the cover page to tie in the theme. I used Crayola Markers to color them in. I wrote the quote “the storm will pass” to remind myself that even when times are tough or life is dull, there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. ❤︎

Monthly Calendar

The next spread is my monthly calendar, which is a quick glimpse into the month of April. I haven’t filled it out yet, but that’s because I prefer to keep my spreads plain when posting them on social media, to protect my privacy and keep a minimalist look.

Trackers

I honestly really love how this spread turned out! I think that the wash tape tied in really well to the theme. The tracker on the left is a writing goals sheet for writing contest NaNoWriMo. My final word count goal is 18,000 words. Although I am much further along than displayed in this image, I decided to keep it blank! The next tracker is my exercise/running tracker. With quarantine, my goal is to work out at least six days a week.

Weekly Spread

Lastly, I have my daily spread for the week of April 6th-12th. I kept a minimalistic style with bubble letters for the date. Honestly, I’m really happy with how this spread turned out! 😀

Here’s my cover page! I doodled some palm trees and did a quote in calligraphy. I can’t wait for summer!

Next is mymonthly log. I did a huge calligrahy piece of the word “May” and think it turned out really cool! I used both my tombow dual brush pens and crayola supertips to create this blending affect. I used my zebra midliners and white gelly roll pen to finish it off and  added some black and grey shadows to make it pop!

This is my mood tracker and reading tracker! I decided to make my mood tracker simple and just drew in some plain square boxes. But formy reading tracker, I drew a big palm tree in the middle and put in a little box to show my reading goals for that month.

And lastly, here is my first weekly spread. The only day that is filled in is Sunday, which is unusual because usually everything in my bullet journal is completely filled out! On the bottom right-hand corner I have an events section and a small palm tree doodle.

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.
