Bullet Journal Flip Through:
Hi All! I’m so glad to be back on the blog this week with one of my favorite kinds of posts, the bullet journal flip through!
I couldn’t be any more excited about bullet journaling really. Since I started my planner journey, I’ve flopped around from one planning system to another, never landing on one system that worked. I’ve tried the Erin Condren Life Planner. I’ve tried tons of inserts in ring bound planners. I’ve tried printable inserts. I’ve tried horizontal and vertical layouts. Monthlies, weeklies, dailies. None of that shit really worked for me. Until I tried bullet journaling. If you haven’t heard of the bullet journal before, I’d encourage you to check out BulletJournal.com for great information and some beautiful images. Ryder Carroll invented the bullet journal system. Frikin genius. So here’s my bullet journal flip through.
Here’s the video to see the bullet journal flip through live!
Here’s a normal weekly spread for me. I use a Dutch Door to add more space. I get three pages for the price of 2 essentially. The first time I tried this it was a totally fail (and I wrote that in) but it’s been working well since then.
This is what my daily spreads look like, some of the time. I change them up quite often, depending on what I feel like. I may draw in the weather, and may not. I might add a time tracker and sometimes I don’t. That’s what’s lovely about the bullet journal. You can do whatever-n-tha-hell you want.
Half Marathon Training Spread:
Bullet journals are so flexible. This is a spread with Hal Higdon’s Novice 1 Half Marathon Training Plan. I refer to this plan several times a year to plan my training. This spread means I don’t have to go digging around to find it each time. You will notice I misspelled “Novice” on the spread. IDGAF, and you shouldn’t either in your own journal. Shit happens.
January Run Log:
Maybe my favorite spread. I keep a monthly run log that lets me see my stats at a glance. I can tell if it was a good run, if my mood was shit, if my hip or my foot hurt, all from this log. I can also tell when I’ve not been sleeping and had headaches. When I took a legitimate rest day, or when I was just screwing around.
Year in Pixels and Acts of Service:
Here are another couple of spreads I like. A year in pixels is meant to give you an overview of a whole year of moods, in one glance. Acts of Service is one of the 5 Love Languages. If you haven’t taken the quiz to discover your love language, you should.
This spread should be fun. I’m calling it “gratitoodle” instead of just gratitude. I’m going to try to doodle what I’m grateful for in the month of February. We’ll see how long that lasts. (I mean, lets be real.)
Here’s one last spread for #incowrimo. If you’ve not heard of it, InCoWriMo stands for International Correspondence Writing Month. It happens every February. Check that out here. I’m going to do my dead level best to complete this task. I need the connection with friends and family, and I could use the handwriting practice.
What the F**k is a FauxJo?
I keep my bullet journal, and another A5 notebook in a Fauxjo. This is a cross between a fauxdori and a bujo cover. With a bujo cover, it’s super floppy and only holds one book. I need more than one. So I designed the fauxjo. It’s got two deep pockets to slip notebook covers in and thick sturdy elastics for holding larger books. I’m in love with it so far! This one happens to be a zombie love themed fabric. It’s awesome because it’s not traditional Valentine’s stuff. It’s got a little edge to it.
