Alrighty friends, here’s an in-depth look at my bullet journal, the process I use, and my specific pages for the past few weeks.
(Don’t forget to change the mode of reblog to text post, not link, if that’s what you want.)
To start things off, here’s my cover:
The paint is chipping just a wee bit, and I need to get a perfect method down for painting the covers, but I decided to dress up my Moleskine, as I have multiple and they all look exactly the same. When I get a better method down, I’ll post a tutorial so other people can decorate their Moleskines too!
If we open the cover, we have my legend and the start of my index.
As my schedule will be changing next semester, and thus so will the colors I’ve been using, I’ll probably make a new legend at the start of the summer or next semester. As for my index, I have it separated into two columns, one for the description of the item, and one for the page number.
It also covers two pages.
As you can also see above, I have my schedule for the semester written out, with the squares colored in with their coordinating pens from the legend. I have the name of the class, the time it begins, the time it ends, and the room it meets in listed. I think I may add the professor (or TA for labs and discussion) next semester since I’ll be taking even more classes. We’ll see.
Next we have my monthly layout.
I chose this layout because I had originally intended on having a task list for the month along the left-hand side, but next time I will definitely be cutting that and using the whole two pages for my calendar view.
I also have a condensed monthly view.
This is used for a easier way for me to see how packed which parts of the months will be, and stuff like that.
And now we move into my daily pages.
The first (above) are really quite boring.
And sometimes my colors align extremely well.
Sometimes I get distracted during studying and start doodling professional lettering into my pages.
This one is by risarodil, and you should go check out her stuff–it’s amazing! I’m currently out of color ink, else I would have printed it and placed the original with her name on it in my book.
This page is my favorite.
Crowded yet organized, colorful, bright. I have a test tomorrow and a project due the day after, hence the boxes of studying to-do lists (which I LOVE by the way–they’re super helpful).
As you can see, I put the number of the day and which day of the week it is along the side, with the number in a circle along a “ribbon” and the day listed in orange (go Pokes!) across the top of each day. I also color along the ribbon different colors (actually the order the colors are in the Staedtler pen case) to help separate the days a little more visually.
The supplies I use are:
- Staedtler Triplus Fineliner pens, porous point, 10 count
- Moleskine hardcover journal, large
- Pilot G2 05 pens
- Staedtler 925 Drafting Pencil, 05mm HB
- Pilot Frixion pens (the kind with the Japanese writing all over it).
Let me know what you all think, and feel free to show me your bullet journals!
