Just a tip: there are 4 main kinds of notebooks - lined, dotted, gridded, and blank. I only linked dotted notebooks above, but those brands also made other notebooks so they shouldn’t be too hard to find.
lined notebooks are good for when your bujo is writing-heavy (so if it’s also functioning as a journal).
dotted notebooks are probably what you see most often because they’re so versatile. they’re great for both writing and more doodle heavy bujos (but if you have trouble writing in a straight line they probably aren’t for you).
gridded notebooks are great if your a perfectionist because they make it super easy to draw straight lines.
blank notebooks are what you want to use if your bujo will be very art focused.
these are just some pens that are popular in the studyblr community, but you can literally use any pen (or pencil) that you want. any pens that you already have in you house are fine, so please don’t go out and buy any of these just for your bujo!
EXTRA: you can check my supplies tag and there should be some swatches like this
Here are the finished images of the reversible baby blanket i made.
Again, this was made as a fan art/congrats to Michael and Lindsay Jones of Rooster Teeth since they are expecting a baby. They are both awesome people and i wanted to make them something as a ‘thank you’ for BEING awesome and just for kicks.
Unfortunately, while i know it arrived via tracking the package itself, i still don’t know if they opened it or not. :/ Kind of bummed about that. I want to know if they like it/if it arrived safely/if jeremy dooley stole it because it’s about the perfect size for him.
I had never done anything like this before with it being a reversible blanket so. As far as a technical aspect goes, it wasn’t hard per say but it was a bit tricky to line it up for the actually quilting part of it. Thank god for water soluble thread. I used that with the Ruby side to bast stitch that to the batting (mid-weight fleece) and to give myself a sort of grid to line up with for adding on the Achievement Hunter side.
My camera doesn’t pick up the quilting thread itself because i used a transparent thread. It was that or black thread, and i thought that with all the black fabric already in there, it might be too much.
Final size was a 35 inch square, made with 100% cotton for the patchwork and common fleece for the batting. Both logos were appliqued with Heat N Bond lite and reinforced with 100% cotton thread blanket stitching. Total work time was about 22 hours. :D
bullet journalling. it is a creative outlet for people as well as a way for people to be productive. after many requests, here is a guide to bullet journalling to help you along the way of your bullet journal journey <33
what is bullet journalling?
a customisable organisation system which can consist of ur to-do list, sketchbook, diary and notebook (or even all of the above)
also known as “bujo” bc of “bu” from bullet and “jo” from journal
check out this video here for the original bullet journal video by ryder carroll
a notebook/binder/journal (depending on ur preference eg. dotted, grid or lined paper as well as budget)
a highlighter and / or a marker of your choice
other decorative supplies eg. washi tape & photos
the supplies will depend on how much u want to decorate ur bujo!
bullet journal spreads
note: a bujo spread is a two pages of a notebook whereas a layout is the style / design of the spread.
index (to refer to when finding pages)
key (used to identify what each bullet means)
future log (events that are happening in the current year)
monthly spread (consisting of events happening on the current month)
weekly spread (consisting of events happening on the current week)
daily spread (consisting of events happening on the current day)
additional spreads eg. movies & tv shows to watch, books to read,
trackers (often used to track basic habits such as exercising, brushing ur teeth, drinking water and more)
it’s ok to make a mistake in ur bullet journal !!!!!!!!
please don’t feel intimidated by other people’s bullet journals
do what works for u (eg. for me personally, habit trackers don’t work at all)
don’t be afraid to experiment between different layouts in your bullet journal
if the bullet journalling method doesn’t work for u after continuous experimenting, it’s allg :))
In Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, space and time are unified in a single entity called spacetime. This is the “stage” in which the laws of physics operate.
In Einstein’s theory, the presence of mass and energy warps spacetime, and it is this curvature that affects objects in the way we perceive as gravity. The basic idea is that while we see objects accelerating towards a mass by the effect of a force, in reality is just the object attempting to follow a straight line in this four-dimensional warped space described by General Relativity.
In other words, things fall because they are following a straight line in spacetime.
In usual illustrations, the bending of space is represented as a flat rubber-sheet with masses pressing down on it. This has always bugged me, as it didn’t really represent the nature of 3D space being curved, and it never really addressed the fact that time is also distorted near masses.
This is my first attempt at a better depiction of the effects of General Relativity. Here, we see a 3x3x3 section of an imaginary spatial grid (that extends throughout all of space) being distorted by the presence of a mass. At the intersections of the grid lines there are clocks that show the rate of passage of time at each point in space, relative to a far away observer.
Notice how the clocks near the mass measure time at a slower pace than the clocks further away from the mass.
The distortion of spacetime is real, and can and has been measured experimentally several times. Modern telecommunication satellites and GPS systems all make use of the predictions of General Relativity in order to function.
While bizarre and complex, General Relativity has stood the test of time, and is one of the most well-tested and successful scientific theories ever conceived.
Hi everyone! So for the April study challenge, @martastudyblr and I collaborated to come up with the prompts (with your help of course). Feel free to post to the prompts of the day (and you don’t need to do all of them if you don’t have the time)! Some of these are more “text” heavy answers than photo responses, but there’s always room for creative answers. The written list is under the cut!
