I started my first bullet journal in January as a bit of a New Year’s resolution to get more organized.
So far I have kept to it and it has helped much to my surprise. I usually don’t make New Years resolutions because I figure if I can’t keep it, I see no point.
I’ll have to admit, after looking at other fancy spreads, it was a bit overwhelming, to say the least. But after a late light bulb moment, it finally hit me that a lot of it is actually if you want to go above and beyond to make it uniquely you. It is actually not necessary.
You can be as minimalist as you want if that’s what makes you comfortable.
This is an entirely different level of creativity that I have no experience in despite my background in art. It’s a bit contradictory, I know. So I did what I thought I would never do.
Go for a more minimalist approach.
I figured I’ll figure out the fancy smancy stuff when I get the hang of the steps and basic layouts down. After the first few pages, I got the hang of it.
Here is my weekly layout. There’s not much to it. The only thing that I’ve been practicing consistently is the calligraphy aspect of it.
This one is one of my more personal spreads. So far it lists Bible Scriptures that I hold dear to my heart and others that I have been reviewing to keep memorized. There’s a lot more. I just haven’t added them yet.
Don’t judge my lack of doodling skills. My exercise log is pretty much a list of exercises to add to my workout regimen and others that I do daily.
So there you go.
I finally figured out what spreads are. They are whatever you want it to be whether it is your hobbies, lifestyle, responsibilities etc. Duh, now I know. Don’t look at me like that. That’s why I said it was a late light bulb moment.
Anyway, this spread is self-explanatory. I’m tracking my bookworm list.
There you have it. My second-month update on my bullet journaling journey for 2018.
Let me know what you think in the comments section and what ideas you have for your own bullet journaling journey. Also, I am thinking of doing an art YouTube channel to complement my blog sometime in the future so let me know what you think of the idea as well and what you would like to see.
Until next time. God bless you and yours.
