how to weekly

@therealjacksepticeye’s first video today hit so hard home 😓😭 So I felt like opening up a little bit.

I mean, I’m in university right now. I’m a second year English major who constantly fights against self doubt and depression. I wonder at least weekly how I managed to get in in the first place since there were 283 who applied and 51 got in and I often feel like I manage to do the most stupid mistakes in every assignment or when I’m supposed to talk. I don’t even know what I want to do in the future. And sometimes everything just feels so… meaningless. And I don’t know what to do. Like I would be stuck in a car on a cliff.

But the last time that I was really struggling with my mental health and pulled through it something just clicked. I started to enjoy the little things in life. Literally little, like how pretty a scenery can look for a split second when leaves are falling down perfectly or how good food tastes after a long day without eating or how good it actually feels to stay up late watching something and then sleeping as late as possible during the weekends.

Idk what the exact point of my rambling is, but what I’m trying to say is that everything that Jack said and what the game represents are on point. Things get better and easier and that sometimes the most important thing is to take a deep breath and try to see the best in every moment you are going through.

How to use a bullet journal, student’s edition

I’ve been using a bujo for a year now, and as a high school student, I was struggling to incorporate my bujo into my studies, aka organising my homework and stuff. Before starting a bullet journal I was using a day to day diary where I wrote down all my homework and exams. As I switched to the bujo, I was so happy to have this productivity-boosting tool, yet I couldn’t figure out how I could write down my school-related dates and assignments on my bujo, since it is not designed for long-term planning. So here are the tips I figured out through time (and a lot of studyblr scrolling hehe) on how to use a bujo as a student! Enjoy ^^

1. Have a Semester/trimester/year overview of your school/uni year

This is so far the best tip for long-term planning in your studies. With an overview of your school/uni weeks, it is very easy to jot down exam dates, deadlines, conferences and stuff. 

It’s very useful when you are given, at the beginning of your school year, the planning of exams. You can easily jot down the dates and subjects of each exam in this calendar.

You can also add vacations, public holidays and weekends. I also like to highlight the days already gone so that at the end of the school year, I’ll feel the joy of highlighting the last day of school ^^

2. Weekly spreads and assignments columns

This is essential if you want to incorporate your bullet journal with study planning. 

It consists of having one column of your page, the weekly assignments overview, dedicated to only writing homework, assignments and upcoming tests. The other part of your weekly spread consists of your usual daily logs. Here are some of my weekly spreads as an example (shoutout to @studypunked for the inspo)

As you can see in the pics, the left column is used solely for writing down my homework and tests.

I also like to add some decorations and pictures to give a bit of life to those weekly spreads.

I also added a month overview and a sleep log each week, but this is personal: you can become creative about how you want your weekly spreads to be.

I usually pre-do these weekly spreads for school weeks after a vacation so that if the teachers give an assignment due in a week or two, I already have the homework column of the due week prepared in advance. When I don’t have school (aka during vacations), I don’t make a weekly spread. I just do my dailies linearly.

3. Useful collections for school

I also like to have some pages of my bullet journal dedicated to other elements related to school:

Homework to do during the holidays:

My grade averages:

A spread dedicated to the list of things I had to do for UK uni application and school during last summer:

And so on… you can get creative and it also depends on your needs for school. 

So here it is! This setup worked really well for my senior year and I will definitely continue to use it for university. 

I hope this post was useful :)

Hello fellow studyblrs!

I’m Kim and I have been a part of the studyblr and bullet journalling for more than a year already. However, despite messing around from month to month and week to week, I still find myself not knowing what my personal style is. I usually browse through a lot of other people’s work and absorb them into one single piece. I’m also someone who can’t stick to just one theme per month like how other people do it because whatever I do is always spontaneous and I think I might get bored with having a similar theme throughout. However, I really love the aesthetic of those who are able to do it. Here are some of my work.

What do you guys think?

your peraltiago concept of the week #1

everytime jake peralta is taking a selfie with amy santiago, he says something to make her laugh super hard the second before tapping the shutter button. this means that in every single picture he’s ever taken of them, amy ‘s got her mouth wide open, nose scrunched up and eyes almost closed, pure joy written all over her face. 

 he is, of course, always looking very proud of himself.
