Plan With Me: September 2018 (Pinecone and Acorn theme)

IMG_1349.jpg

Greetings bookish friends! Guess who’s back from her mini hiatus? Fall is just around the corner, so I decided to have pinecones and acorns as my theme for September. I was going to do falling leaves, but then I realized that I don’t actually know how to draw a leaf. 😂 Or, at least a decent leaf that I would be comfortable posting on the internet.

But I do think that I have some pretty good pinecones and acorns! So without further ado, here is my September 2018 Plan With Me.

Supplies

  • Minimalism Art A5 Dotted Journal (Any dotted journal works)
  • Crayola Supertips (I have the 100 count, but most people use the 50 count)
  • A pen
  • A pencil
  • An eraser

Here is my cover page! On the left I have a random quote about fall, and on the right is my standard monthly doodles. Sorry if you’re not able to see the pinecones and acorns very well, the picture came out a little blurry.

Now to my monthly log/calendar. I’m really happy with how this spread turned out in general and I think it looks very aesthetic overall.

Next is my weekly log! I find these to be very useful when planning upcoming events and tests, because its bigger than the monthly log and there is more space to write.

Ok, I know that the official NaNoWriMo or CampNaNo is not going on right now. But I am planning on participating in NaNoWriMo 2018 and I want to have a head start. *Without cheating of course* I will be tracking the progress of my first draft using this spread. I’ll probably add in more pinecones and acorns to decorate the page because it feels a little bit blank right now.

Next is my money tracker and a blank spread for notes.

And lastly, my weekly spread! I was going to write the date inside the pinecones and acorns but realized that I didn’t have enough room…

Plan With Me: July 2018 (Daisy theme)

pwmj-cover.jpg

Hi, and welcome back to another Plan With Me post! Last time we had a watermelon theme to kick off summer but now we have a daisy theme. This month, I switched up a lot of things with my bullet journal. I took out my mood tracker, habit tracker, and changed the layout of my weekly spreads. Hope you enjoy!

Supplies:

  • Pilot Precise Rolling Ball
  • A good ol’ classic pencil
  • A good ol’ classic eraser

All of these supplies have worked great and I haven’t had any problems.

First I have my cover page! I’m pretty happy with how this turned out. I even have a Tom Petty quote/song lyric on the other side! In case you didn’t know, I love Tom Petty.

Next is the monthly log! Nothing special here.

Above is my NaNoWriMo tracker! Last month I made one (I didn’t have it in last month’s Plan With Me, though) and found it really useful. This was an absolute nessicity to have.

In case any of you are wondering why I am doing NaNo in both June and July it’s because I spilt the challenge into 3 months so I wouldn’t be stressed and could focus on making a good first draft.

Next is the Blog Stats page, which includes post ideas, and what I read. I didn’t do this last month and I think it will definately come in handy!

Then I have my money tracker. I find this spread very useful, even if it is boring to fill it out.

Here is the Brain Dump page. When I put this in last month’s bujo, I wasn’t expecting it to be useful. I was wrong and I love this spread and am very happy with how it turned out!

And finally my weekly spread! I decided to change things up a bit and I loved how this spread turned out.

Thank you for reading my latest Bullet Journal post! What do you think of this spread? Do you like this month’s theme? Let me know down in the comments section.

The Laziness Cycle™ (WISvsWIF edition)

Hello guys!

OK, let’s start off by being honest here. In the past 24 hours, how lazy do you think you have been? 100% being extremely lazy and 0% being extremely hardworking. Think about this. If you want, you can scroll down to the comments and put down your answer without looking. 

And without further ado, I present to you The Laziness Cycle™.

Disclaimer: This is for comedic purposes only. If you can’t laugh/don’t have a human soul than don’t read any further.

1. When you realize that you’ve been watching Netflix for 3+ hours

giphy-downsized

What I say: Oh come on, I’ve only been watching for 45 minutes, more or less!

What I feel deeeep down: You need to get off the couch and live your life. There is more to this world than salty dried up popcorn and cringing at Netflix teen dramas.

2. When you go outside but then feel like a vampire

I couldn’t really find a ‘Vampire screaming in pain when outside’ GIF so I chose this bee. (It’s pretty legit, as you can see)

What I say: What a beautiful day!

What I feel deeeep down: MY INNER SOUL IS BURNING FROM THE HEAT OF THE ETERNAL FIRE OF THE SUN. I HAVE BEEN INSIDE FAR TOO LONG. NOOOOOOO!

3. When you finally come to your senses and be productive

What I say: This is impossible

What I feel deeeep down: This is impossible.

Great job keeping a positive mindset, Katie.*

*I’m actually quite an optimist. Well, I’m trying.

4. When you rejoice in your glorious victory

What I say: Great job! You worked hard to accomplish your goal and you made it happen!

What I feel deeeep down: Great job! You worked hard to accomplish your goal and you made it happen!**

5. And head straight back to the couch

What I say: I’ve worked hard! I deserve it!

What I feel deeeep down: NOOOOO don’t let the Laziness Cycle™ start all over again!
