Bullet Journal – May 2020 Cover Page & Monthly Spread

So here we are in May. There’s not much to update you on in my life. We’re still on stay-at-home orders. I’m still working from home. Not much has changed and I’m sure everyone is in the same boat.

I recently purchased a record player on Amazon. It hasn’t actually arrived yet (it got lost in the mail and I had to order a replacement), but that’s why I decided to make the “theme” of my cover page a record player.

I’m actually not really happy with how this one turned out. I didn’t share it on social media because it was kind of sloppy and I wish I would have taken more time on it.

The cover page kind of bled into the monthly spread as you can see above. Just not really happy with it at all.

My sister’s birthday is this month and I’ll see my family on Mother’s Day, so those are things to look forward to.

I’ve just felt really bored and off so far this month. All I do is sleep, eat, and work so it feels a little like I’m wasting my life away. I really look forward to being able to have a drink at a bar again or just to sit at a restaurant with my family. Guess we’ll see what next month brings.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Before I Fall was one of those movies that really makes you think about your life and the way that you treat people. There are things that I said and did in high school that I 100% regret and wish that I could take back, and in this story Sam got the chance to change how she treated the people in her life.

It’s one of those stories that really makes you realize that everything you say and do can affect someone in a way that you didn’t intentionally mean, and that you should do your best to be good to others and honest about your feelings because you never know when it will be your last day on this Earth.

Basically, I really like this movie and I loved the book even more.

Even though I knew how the story would end, while I was reading I couldn’t help but hope that it would be different and that somehow both Sam and Juliet could be saved.

It’s definitely a sad story and I’m not going to lie, it was hard to read about a girl killing herself over and over again. But it’s a good story and it has a good message.

Seriously, why are people so afraid to live their lives the way they want? We should be able to speak our mind and tell people how we really feel without worrying about being judged for it by others. Why do people care so much about what others do? It doesn’t make sense.

Live your life the way you want, tell the people that you love that you love them, be a good person, and read this book 🙂
