Bullet Journal – April Cover Page

Happy April! We’re being productive this month and getting things done, so here’s a somewhat earlier than usual monthly cover page!

I’m honestly not sure why I chose this quote to act as the cover page this month. I think at the beginning I was being a little sentimental about some past things and I had shared this quote on social media back when I was in my feels about it. I just really like this quote. I know Sylvia Plath is kind of depressing sometimes, but she definitely had a way with words. I should probably read more of her work…

This month actually started out on a good note. Easter seemed super early this year, didn’t it? We didn’t get everyone together like we usually would, but I got to see my aunts and my cousins, which was fun. It’s always good to catch up with family and we always have a good time.

I don’t really have a lot going on this month, but I kind of like that. I feel like it’s good sometimes to not have plans and to be able to relax and just enjoy the moments as they come. I’m actually reading a book that’s sort of about this, so look out for a review in the next week or so!

Things are looking pretty good honestly. I’m loving the nicer weather and I’m dying to be tan again! I’m also planning on going somewhat blonde again at the end of the month, so I’m excited about that. Things are good 🙂

Bullet Journal – June 2020 Cover Page

I’m so late to this. Man, I don’t know what happened this month. I’ve literally told myself that I need to do this every day and just didn’t. I don’t really have an excuse, it was pure laziness on my part. I promise I’ll do better next month.

The Black Lives Matter movement is something that I feel very strongly about and although no one really sees my bullet journal, I wanted to remember this time when I look back and make sure that I feel good about my support.

Personally I haven’t been able to donate much money to the cause, but I’ve made sure to sign the petitions and to share information. I’ve also been having conversations with members of my family. I’m not sure how much is getting through, but hopefully it’ll encourage the people around me to educate themselves about the movement and to support the cause as well.

I think the important thing to remember during this time is that every little bit helps and that we all need to continue to educate ourselves on these issues. If you’re reading this and have the means or time, I encourage you to check out the following websites:

Ways You Can Help
Black Lives Matter
A Growing List of Resources for the Black Lives Matter Movement

We need to do better. We need to educate ourselves. We need to give our support.

This isn’t about politics. This is about humanity and compassion for others.

I was going to post my monthly spread as well, but it feels wrong to add it to this post. Its basically the same as past months, so nothing really necessary to include, and I don’t want to take away from the rest of the post by bringing this back to my journal.

Anyway, I really do hope that even just one person sees this and checks out the resources above. Hopefully the world progresses in the right way and July brings justice to the many families who have been subjected to police brutality.
