February Bullet Journal

It’s that time again when I whip out my bullet journal and draw up my monthly spreads. For anyone who doesn’t know, bullet journalling is a system of planning in which you draw up the calendars yourself, you can also add other pages such as checklists or habit trackers. Bullet journalling also uses a key drawn by using dots to outline tasks, events and other signifiers, I’ll link an article by bulletjournal.com which explains this in more detail in case anyone is interested. Click here for more information . Anyway, I’ll be sharing with you my February bullet journal setup.

My cover page for the month of February is simple, it’s just the word February with an overview calendar and some purple and grey hearts hanging down. My February colour theme is purple and grey.img_2805

The next page is my February calendar where I write down important events happening that month, I use this same calendar spread every month because it really seems to work for me.blurred

Next I have my habit tracker where I have ten habits I want to do everyday in February and here I can track when I do them.img_2831

I also have a study log so that I can track how much I study.  I’ll be using this log for the whole school term but it works well to put it here.img_2834.jpg

My possibly most used spread apart from my weeklies is my term overview spread, here I write upcoming assessments and tests for the term, it’s very helpful to be able to see my assessments at a glance and I’d highly recommend this spread if you bullet journal as a student.img_2833

Lastly, I have my weekly spreads where I put down tasks, homework and events I have each day of the week in February.img_2832

I really enjoyed putting these spreads together and hope you can enjoy them too!

Bullet Journalling-What’s the fuss?

So, bullet journaling. You may have heard the word or seen it on your Pinterest feed but you’re probably wondering what exactly it is and what the fuss is about. I’ll break it down for you.

Bullet journalling is a planning system in which you draw up the spreads yourself rather than buying a diary/planner with everything filled in. Some people like making it beautiful and artistic, whereas others use it only for practicality. Bullet journalling is great because it’s completely customisable, you can fill it with absolutely anything.

I personally love bullet journalling and would say my system is a mix of artistic and practical. I am by no means at all decent at drawing, to give you an idea, I spent an hour following tutorials on how to draw leaves for my March spread, but I do enjoy calligraphy and creativity. I use my bullet journal mainly for organisation for school but occasionally get a bit creative and do quote pages.

You’re most likely wondering what the intent of this post is? I just wanted to make it clear what bullet journalling is so that when I mention it in future posts nobody is confused.

On a scale of 1-10 I rate bullet journalling a 9 and 3/4 , see what I did there 😉
