Bullet Journal – November Cover Page & Monthly Spread

So November might be a little crazy, huh? Who would’ve thought that the election would be this close. I decided to do a mail in ballot and dropped it off a few weeks before Election Day, which I think was definitely the right choice. I’m not sure I would’ve wanted to stand in line with everyone on Election Day, it was pretty cold.

I’m writing this before I’m posting it, so I’m hoping we have a better idea of who the next president will be by the time this is posted. Fingers crossed at least!

I took off the beginning of the month just to relax and rest. It felt good to have a little break from everything.

I’m wondering what Thanksgiving will be like this year. I’m not sure yet whether or not my family will be holding it. My sister and I were thinking about doing a Friendsgiving, but I guess we’ll have to see where we are before we can decide for sure.

I’m still feeling pretty good this month. I think I’m doing a good job saving money and getting ready for the holidays. I’m looking forward to Christmas and honestly I’m excited for winter this year. It’s kind of nice knowing I won’t have to drive in to work when it snows. We’re staying positive here, right?

Bullet Journal – October Cover Page & Monthly Spread

So this is really late…I know, I know. October has been a crazy month. I feel like I was really busy and had a lot going on. I don’t know, there really isn’t any excuse, I just dropped the ball with posting.

I actually felt really good this month. I got to spend some time with friends and get out of the house a few times. Halloween is also my favorite holiday, so having the house decorated and everything just made me happy. Trick or treating was definitely different in my neighborhood, but we had a pretty good turnout for it being during a pandemic. I love the kids, they’re the best part of Halloween.

I decided to go with a Coraline theme for the month. I actually dyed my hair blue and dressed up as Coraline for Halloween. It was super fun. Here’s a picture of me with my button eyes:

Honestly not too much else to say. Things are pretty much still the same, but I feel really good. Ready for next month!

Bullet Journal – July 2020 Cover Page & Monthly Spread

I wanted to do something fun and summery for July. I see a lot of lemon themed spreads, but I find it really hard to see yellow when I use it in my actual journaling, so I decided to go with oranges!

I’ll admit, this isn’t my best work. I’m not sure what I was doing this day, but I really wasn’t feeling like setting up the month so I was trying to do it quickly. I haven’t decided on an August theme yet. Maybe I’ll make that one a bit more artistic.

This month wasn’t too bad overall. I need to read more!! I decided to take meditation off of my tracker. When I was actually going into the office every day, it was easier to have a routine at night and make time for meditation. Now that I’m home all the time I find myself doing more at home at night and wanting to get other things done. My routine has just changed and I haven’t found a good time for it. I do want to continue with meditation. Maybe I’ll download the Calm app, has anyone tried it?

My goals are a little personal this month. Three years ago in July I met this guy on Tinder who ended up becoming pretty important to me. We were mostly just friends, but there was always a little bit more to it and if I’m being honest with myself I always had hoped for more.

In the last three years, that relationship had a lot of ups and downs. There were quite a few times when we wouldn’t talk for extended periods of time until I would give in and reach out.  It was always me doing the reaching out and re-kindling the relationship.

At this point, we haven’t talked for months and I feel like it’s time for me to work on moving on. Some days it’s definitely strange, but it wasn’t working out and I need to learn how to keep going without thinking about him.

My goal this month was to keep working on that and to remind myself that if he’s never the one to reach out then I shouldn’t waste my time trying to have some sort of contact with him either. Sometimes the people that we care about and want in our lives just don’t feel the same way about us, and that’s been a difficult lesson for me to learn.

Anyway! This month I also did a 3-day juice cleanse. I lost 4 pounds on the cleanse and have continued eating healthier and losing weight! I signed up for HelloFresh next month, so I’m really excited to start cooking for myself more and having healthier meals.

I’m feeling really good about myself right now and I’m actually looking forward to August!

Bullet Journal – Series Tracker

Since we’ve been on lockdown, I’ve really dedicated myself to the television.

Just kidding 😉 But I have spent a lot of time watching tv while stuck at home. I’ve definitely spent too much time doing this recently, but it’s given me the time to watch some really great shows. Honestly I went through these so fast that I’ve actually started another tracker (look out for the future post) and I’m already 4 or 5 shows into that tracker.

Maybe I should spend more time reading…or go outside haha.

Bullet Journal – Movie Tracker

This is kind of a fun one. Well, it could be more fun…I should really go back to some of my old journals and upload some of the old spreads I would do.

Anyway! This is how I keep track of movies that I’ve watched in my bullet journal. It’s really pretty simple. I used to make it more decorative, but I kind of liked the idea of keeping track of the date that I watched it and my rating.

Side note: did anyone else hate Once Upon A Time in Hollywood? Everyone seems to love it, but I really hated how it ended.
