My Bullet Journal Set Up

So some of you have asked me about my bullet journal (I’m looking at you, @munirastudies (and some anons - hi anons!)). Here it is: my set-up!

I previously did a post on my bullet journal at the very beginning of this studyblr, which can be found here. It’s just changed so much since then that I decided I’d post a new one!

- 1 - I’ve got a dotted Leuchtturm1917 A5 notebook in a really dark blue - which fits because I’m Ravenclaw. I was actually planning on painting the house crest on the front cover, but I never got to do it… but I think I’ll do it soon haha.

- 2 - When you look at my bullet journal you’ll see that I have some bright tags there. They really help me find stuff quicker (but they aren’t sticky enough so they often get loose.. I should change that). You can see my tag list in picture

- 3 - and it’s at the very end of the notebook. For those of you who don’t know this system yet, it’s really simple! You just decide how you want to tag that page, for example “books” as I did in mine, and go to the back of your notebook to write it down there. Then you choose a colour and put a strip of washi tape (or I use post it flags) on that page in the back and also on the page you want to tag so that the colours are in one line and you can see them from the outside (god I’m bad at explaining this but I can’t find the page that explained it to me, sorry!).

- 4 - On the first three pages there’s an index, and I use the first page for years and months, then the second page (which you can see in the picture) I use for anything else.

- 5 - Then there’s my key. I have a colour coding system, but I use some colours twice (which is really bad, I know) because there just weren’t enough colours! I have one colour for each subject, then also for other parts of my life like work, family and friends, uni in general and health (which is anything really: when I eat, doctor’s appointments, when I clean my flat etc). There’s also a key for my expenses which I rarely use anymore, and one for how long it took me to do a task which I also don’t use anymore.

- 6 - In this picture, and also the one before, you can see my yearly overview (which I am still so proud of because I thinks it’s really pretty). I only write down really important stuff in there, and things I’m looking forward to.

- 7 - Now we come to the more important stuff in my bullet journal. In this picture you can see my monthly overview. Here I write down everything that happens that particular month, like when I have to work, exams, family and friends stuff, and birthdays etc. I also have space for goals that I want to achieve that month, and an expenses table. This really helps me because often times I would just go shopping for books and stuff and spend so much money (which you can see hasn’t really improved much {{I spent 70€ on books last month?!}}). Now I can see how much I spend and what I should do better next month (like, I should definitely buy less books {{I actually spent more money on books this month and it’s not even halfway through but shush}}). On the next page there’s an example of a weekly overview. This one looks pretty much the same every week (at least the layout). Here are some more examples:

There’s always space for my weekly goals, then a food table where I write down everything I eat (which should make me more aware of what I eat and change my habits of eating - but it kind of doesn’t), underneath that there’s my habit tracker (and you can see I’m not very good at that either), and then there’s some kind of time tracker…? I don’t know what it’s called, I just thought I needed to know how I spend my time each day, like if there’s a lot of pink I’ve been doing a lot for myself (reading, watching movies, listening to music), if there’s lots of yellow I did a lot with friends and family, then there’s days where I was very creative and a lot of the time is purple - or if there’s lots of green (history) and red (English) I did a lot for uni. I really like this one (and I think I came up with it myself, but if someone has already claimed credit I give it all to you haha).

- 8 - Let’s just ignore the fact that this was one of my most unproductive weeks of all time (like, do you see how often I migrated tasks here?!). Just like my weekly overviews, my daily overviews look pretty much the same every week - at least the basic layout. I get bored of a certain layout about halfway through the week, so I try to come up with a new one every week. See how I got an arrow based layout in the orange overview, and kind of tree/nature based in the green one? What I always include is how much water I drink. I try to drink 12 glasses of water, which in my case is about 2,5 litres. Then there’s the basic to do list thing that bullet journals have. I include my colour code here as well, it just makes it easier for me to see what kind of things I have to do each day. Some more examples:

- 9 - I also have pages in my bullet journal that I use for lists, uni stuff, recs, organisation and personal stuff. In this picture you can see my “books to read” list. On the first example picture of the daily pages you can also see my wish list (which only has “money” on it - figures) and a pro/contra list about the two options I have for my stay abroad. Here are some more examples:

My saving goals page (which isn’t really done yet) and my schedule for this semester(which doesn’t have the hours on it):

and a “movies to watch” list (some spelling mistakes included):

- 10 - This last picture is my current spread. I saw this on tumblr and wanted to try it, but my colour code kind of destroys it. Maybe I’ll try it again some time without my colour code… Here’s another picture of the weekly overview:

Wow. This got a little out of hand! I hope you enjoy this :)

“You’ve gotta clean the stone first.”

Excuse me, I know what I’m doing. I’m the one that almost became an engineer in this room.”

Cabbie/illegal tinker Mark and newspaper boy with a part-time job Jack. If you’ve seen the old steampunk sketch of these two I did a loooooong time ago, you know what I’m up to. 

I actually don’t even know if this is steampunk. this is more like neo-steampunk, or a bad mix of sci-fi and victorian fashion. 

Bonus process GIF, even though almost nothing have changed since the last one: 

I had a pretty nice night by the way!  My plan to convince mom into ordering out worked and we had Papa John’s but half our company didn’t make it tonight due to other places to see first and time getting away from them so I decided to replay Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon again >w>

Seriously don’t know what’s funnier. Ikoma getting thrown onto the train, or him being cradled in Suzuki’s arms as Ayame shakes her head and smiles.

Jess Mariano’s life is a mess but he just keeps going.

The new most embarrassing thing I’ve ever written.  I saw this post  and then this stupid plot bunny happened and I had to write it down.  I apologize for my wuko.

It still bewilders Mako that in the three short years he’s known him, Prince Wu has gone from spoiled bratty future king, to actually oddly responsible foreign dignitary/ pop sensation.  

He’s not sure if it’s the responsible or pop sensation part he finds more surprising.

Murdering Mr. Darcy (4/10)

Summary: Ryan is the most recent member of the Fake AH Crew, and he’s loving every second of his new job - except for the annoying British thief who, after a series of terrible first impressions, has become the bane of his existence.

Ryan hates Gavin, and he’s pretty sure Gavin hates him too - until one day, out of the blue, Gavin asks for his help planning a murder.

Part 1  Part 3  AO3

Ryan settled back on his couch at home, pulling his laptop up in front of him. Peter had made several trips during the day in his car that Ryan now had tracked, along with a number of hours of sound recorded on the bug.

He put his headphones in and set to listening. There was a steady spike of loud soundwaves early on in Peter’s first trip and Ryan perked up, thinking he might have picked someone up, only to deflate when he realised the man had just turned on his iPod. He pulled a face immediately.

Ryan might have approved of Gavin’s boyfriend’s taste in vehicles, but his musical preferences could only be described as Eurotrash.

Krippner Tells A Joke

Descartes walks into a coffee shop and sits down. The server comes over and says, “Good evening, Mr. Descartes. Would you like your usual?”

Descartes replies, “I think not,” and disappears.

(P.S. One of my philosophy professors told me this one in college ages ago. It was one of the oddest classes I ever had. We had a whopping 9 people in the class so, of course, we were assigned to a 140 seat lecture hall. 4 people dropped after the first class. They should have hung around, it was a hoot. We spent an hour one day arguing about who’d win in a cage match, Descartes or Sartre, finally deciding that Sartre would lose because he’d be too depressed put up much of a fight.)

(P.P.S. Oh, he stuttered, too. The professor, not Sartre. Don’t know if Sartre stuttered or not.)

(P.P.P.S. I wrote an incredibly boring, incredibly long and utterly meaningless paper on Kant’s Critique of Practical Reason which was unanimously awarded the most ‘indecipherable piece of drivel ever written’ trophy, a small paper cup containing the tears of undergraduates weeping after seeing their job prospects available to them after getting a B.A. in philosophy.)

(P.P.P.P.S. Got an 'A’ in the sucker too. Not that it meant much because everyone got an 'A’. Think he was just grateful that we kept showing up three times a week for the entire semester.)
