Hi everyone! We’re about a week into September and I thought I would share some bullet journal ideas with you. I guess I’m killing two birds with one stone, because all these ideas that I’m sharing on this blog post are from my current bullet journal for this month. So here it is – some ideas and my September set up! Enjoy!
I did this month’s monthly spread in Turkish. I’ve really gotten quite serious in learning Turkish and have been really struggling with remembering the words for all the different months. I’ve found that writing my monthly spreads in Turkish helps me memorise and learn the language more efficiently. I might also try doing my weekly spreads in Turkish next week, because days of the week in Turkish are something I also struggle with. I really recommend this idea to people who are learning a second language. It’s a great way to incorporate your bullet journal to further your learning of another language!
In this month’s monthly spread, I tried something new which is including a separate column for morning, afternoon and all-day appointments. Of course, as I do in every monthly spread, I’ve left a section for notes!
This was one of the weekly spreads that I had done and I love how it turned it. What I tried for this spread was having a column for uni related bullets, and another for other personal bullets. I ended up using a lot of space in the personal column to write up my #BohoBerryChallenge prompts. And, speaking of the #BohoBerryChallenge, this is actually the first time I have ever done one of these month-long daily prompt challenges! So far I’ve been really enjoying it. I also have a little tip for anyone who wants to participate in these challenges but doesn’t have the time to sit and spend too long on each daily prompt. What I would recommend is to simply leave a small space on each of your daily’s in your weekly spread for the prompts. It’s a less time-consuming way to participate in these fun challenges and it helps to beautifully fill out your weekly spreads too!
This is just another layout idea for a weekly spread I tried. I shared this layout a while back on my Instagram page and so many of you really loved it, so I thought I would include it in this blog post too.
This September memories spread was inspired by Deena from @craftydeesigns on Instagram. If you have seen some of my past blog posts where I had done journal calendars, this is a similar concept to journal calendars except less strict in having to write up a short memory everyday. With this spread, I pretty much just jot down any highlights that occur throughout the month.
Being able to track your mood can be so helpful in determining what recurring things might make you feel good or not so great. A mood tracker is a quick and easy way to reflect upon your day and check-in with yourself on a daily basis. When I posted a photo of this on my instagram, quite a few of you asked me how I possibly choose what to record down when people go through such a variety of emotions in a single day. My answer is that I set a specific time everyday to really sit down and reflect on how I am feeling at that very moment. As you can see in my mood spread, I have two check-in’s. One is in the morning and one is in the evening, so I usually do my a.m check-in first thing when I wake up in the morning and the evening check-in right before I go to bed!
The last idea I wanted to share with you is my travel planner. This particular one is for London because I am currently planning my trip to London where I’ll be meeting Erdal. 🙂 So far in my travel planner I have taken notes on possible flights and accommodation and anything related to the trip, really! I have also included spaces to write down any places such as attractions, restaurants, bars, cafe’s that I would like to visit and a packing list. If any of you are from London (or Izmir in Turkey because I’ll be heading there after), or have any places to recommend there, please let me know!
