Hello. Yes, I’m posting again ~ I figured, since I recently finished my May bullet journal spreads; “after popular demand” aka, Instagram support (ily <3), I’d share them on my blog for everyone to take a peek!
I would usually do a wrap-up for April and a TBR for May, but…I can’t be bothered. I’m sharing what I want to share!
What’s different about my bullet journal this month is that I’m trying out a brand new weekly spread I made myself, that will hopefully make me more productive especially since I’m starting my postgrad study (AH) on the 11th of May.
I’m actually really looking forward to studying because I’ll be studying something relevant to my full-time job that I’m pretty passionate about. My undergrad became torture because I just didn’t care about the degree anymore, so I hope that I’ll do better this time around! Which makes me even more determined to make sure I use my bullet journal well during this time.
Please also enjoy the spectacular partial lighting these photos have, today is a lovely grey and rainy day and I can’t wait to get my hands on my next read and cosy up next to the window.
Without further ado, here are the spreads (in order too):
Above is my monthly spread. I wanted to try out the lined monthly cause it’s still pretty visual but concise enough. I don’t really have many events throughout the month and with social distancing, even less so. I’ve yet to finalise my TBR for May, but it’s likely going to be The Bone Witch for The Asian Readathon & more Shadowhunter Chronicle books cause I’ve been doing a massive re-read/read for the first time.
Above is my NEW weekly spread + a peek into my weekly to-do’s. I incorporated a lot of new things; the weekly to-do’s being one because I like to be able to see my regular tasks without my other non-regular tasks in the mix. The left weekly box is for any events and so I can use the main to-do lists for my non-regular to-do’s.
Even though this spread is literally after the first week of May, I really just wanted to be able to visualise my daily routine. Working from home, studying from home, and relaxing at home makes it all kind of jumble up in my head. Being able to see a small timeline of my day with the usual times I do things, has been really satisfying. My May Reads is pretty self-explanatory otherwise.
My last spread – in preparation for the second week of May when my semester/study period officially begins, I created these tables to keep track of assignments, the topics I’ll be studying each week, what tasks/homework I get and how I’ll juggle them throughout the study period. I tried to keep it very simple because I want the upmost of productivity for these 6-7 weeks.
And that was my quick, bullet journal spreads for May. I don’t really consider it to be super bookish but I prefer not to stress myself out with crazy spreads. I don’t really care how many pages I read per day, I just want to read a little every day (see habit tracker) and know what I plan to possibly read next.
