Hi! I got an anonymous ask asking to share photos of my bullet journal set up! I tried about 5 times to get pictures that were in the same spot and the same lighting but damn it is difficult. I ended up shooting these going page by page so hopefully that is okay! I’ll list the pages I included since I missed a couple out because they’re just headers at the moment and I’ll put in brackets ones that I’ll add when my semester starts:
blog post ideas (this blog and my main @styleselection #shamelessselfpromo)
movies/tv shows to watch
books to read
expenses (more like ‘treat yo self items’)
january overview/month breakdown
weekly spread (monday 01 jan-today)
(semester timetable - my classes, teachers, lecture + tutorial times)
(assignment date checklist)
At the back of the bullet journal, I have lined paper for note-taking or jotting random things down. I love having space to write important information so that will be useful. Plus I have to specifically get my English relatives to ship me the grid paper so I don’t want to waste it for random notes! At the very end I’ve got to-do list pages where I can note down things for assignments or for over the weekend. Also the little grey thing in the left corner of the second photo, it a task pad which slots into the discs and just gives you another space for writing down bits and bobs when you need to be quick!
Hope this is useful. I’m happy to do a more in-depth post or a review of the notebook system, if anyone is interested. Just let know in a message or reply! x
Working on my AP Psych homework~
I used ARC lined paper from Staples, a plastic ruler I got from Target, my dark green and light green triplus Staedtler pens, my green Mildliner, and a green Stabilo pen.
Obviously I stuck to a green theme, which is all I see out of my window anyway~
And I just noticed the lines aren’t straight. Darn.
There’s a small collection of… medics, for lack of a better word. Most of them are pre-med students looking to help others and/or practice. The supplies they carry are mostly standard, although they disinfect wounds with salt with disturbing frequency. There was a story about one carrying a bag of saline solution at all times, and believing strongly enough in its mundane and magical healing powers that they were able to–well, I digress.
The point is, the medics are a tight-knit group, so naturally, they gossip. In EU, this is a worrisome proposition. I’ve learned over time that there are two kinds of gossip: the bad kind, because some things should not be known let alone talked about, and the good kind, because talking around some subjects is the safest way to teach the new blood.
I’m not sure which kind Blanket is.
So. Blanket was one of those students who avoided conversation for lengths of time that would be considered worrisome in a normal school but safe at EU. They usually had some sort of shawl on and kinda baggy clothing, so you couldn’t clearly see their profile. Definitely human, though, before you ask. One day they walk up to a medic and say, I’ve got a problem, not strictly about them, but somewhat embarrassing because I was an idiot. Ok, says the medic, looking at them closely, what stupidity did you get yourself into. Blanket pulls down their sleeves, and to this day I’m not sure if they were a complete idiot or if they were onto something, but–
August 2nd, 2017 - I finally went school supply shopping! Everything pictured is from staples and was on sale (except the binders since I’ve been reusing those for the past few years). I’m honestly excited for school to start.
