Life Updates // Starting A Bookstagram (Instagram) Account

Greetings bookish friends!

In my last post, I was desperate. Desperate for posting ideas, that is.

And you guys gave m some great feedback in the comments section. *Thank you!*

I have a lot going on in my life right now, (mostly homework) and I don’t have the free time like I do in summer to post 3 days a week. *Or at all, for that matter*

So, I am officially changing my posting schedule to one post every week on Saturday, with monthly bullet journal posts to monthly recaps being the exception.

But I will be trying to get my homework done faster, adapt to my new more demanding schedule and post more often. I love blogging so much, and its tons of fun.

As was mentioned in the title, Katie That Bookish Girl has officially started a instagram {aka bookstagram} account! I haven’t posted anything yet, but please give it a follow anyway because there will be some awesome bookish/bullet journal posts in the future.

I will be also be doing an instagram live stream for my October Plan With Me! It will be at  around 4:00 in the afternoon and on Thursday (or Friday if I decide to be lazy…)

The username is @katiethatbookishgirl

And that’s about it! After my October Plan With Me, I’ll likely have a school related post. I also got a comment requesting to do libraries v.s. E-books, which I would have a lot of fun doing (roasting E-books, that is). Let me know in the comments section down below if there’s anything you want to see.

I’M RUNNING OUT OF IDEAS?! *Please help me*

As you can tell by the title of this post, I am in a state of desperation.

That is why I need you to help me.

Are you ready?

Can you do that blogosphere?

Please?
Anyone?

Greetings, bookish friends!

Now that the slightly over dramatic montage is over, we can get down to business.

I am running out of ideas for blog posts + I need help.

So of course, like any normal fangirl-ish teenage girl with a computer and a book blog would do, I leaned on the blogosphere for support.

If any of you have noticed, I have been taking a mini hiatus. I just moved to a new school this year, and its been taking a while to adjust to my schedule. So I haven’t really had the free time to write a blog post, and academics always come first.

I am open to any suggestions that you guys have for me. I will do collabs, book reviews, WISvsWIF specials, and anything bujo/stationary. Or something else I really don’t care.

I’m counting on you.

Back To School 2018 Bullet Journal Spreads

IMG_1276.jpg

Greetings, bookish friends! Welcome to part 2 of my back to school 2018 posts. Read my about my Back to School 2018 Supply Haul. Today I will be showing you my bullet journal spreads, specifically for back to school 2018.

Getting back into the swing of balancing tests, homework, and many hours spent procrastinating by counting the dots on the ceiling, *I’m still a good student, OK?* can be hard. But I suppose that aesthetic spreads and high quality markers make it…less hard? Hopefully? I don’t know if it works, but I’m going to try! Enjoy.

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 pencil
  • An eraser

I now present to you my standard school bujo spread! Usually my spreads also include weekends, but I figured that it was better for me to have more space for the weekday spreads.

My theme for August is balloons and clouds. Click here to read my August Plan With Me post.

On the right side, of each day I have my to-do list. On the left side is homework that I need to complete. As much as I dislike homework, I think it’s really important not to forget it! We’ve all been there…

Here is a zoomed in picture of my upcoming tests + events section. The right side is to write down upcoming tests, and the left is for events. I also made a color coded key (in the top left) of how hard the test will be so I know how much to study for it. The pink is the easiest, then blue, and so on.

Overall, I think that this section of the spread will be very useful. It feels good to know that I’ll be prepared to whatever another year of middle school throws at me.

Thanks for reading this post! What did you think of my back to school spreads? Are you nervous or excited about going back to school? Do you bullet journal too? Let me know down in the comments section.

Back To School 2018 Supply Haul

IMG_1201.jpg

Hello! Here is my Back To School 2018 Supply Haul. I always find it really exciting to go back to school shopping. It’s a lot more fun than actually going to school…

Please note that I am not trying to brag or endorse certain products. This is just for fun!

Multiple notebooks are needed for multiple classes with multiple requirements to pass. To pass those multiple classes, you need multiple pages of notes with multiple formulas and vocabulary terms to pass multiple pop quizzes and tests.

I dare you to try to say that out loud. *Harder than it looks*

I genuinely don’t know what I would do without lined paper!

Binders come in handy for storing…lined paper. (Which we use a lot, as I previously mentioned). The mint green one is 1½ inches thick and the pink is 1 inch thick. I will be using the mint green one as my main binder. The pink one is for English.

And more pencil cases! *Can’t get enough of those*

Thank you for reading this post! What school supplies have you purchased yet? What’s your favorite school supply from my list? *Takes deep breath* Do you like binders more or file-folders? (The never-ending debate).
