Hello everyone! So this month I had a lot of fun with my bullet journal theme. This month I decided to bring in some lemons. My boyfriend and myself have an inside joke where we call each other lemons instead of evil. This stems from the Spongbob Squarepants episode where EVIL stands for Every Villain Is Lemons. We were having a bit to fun before I started working on my doodles that I needed to make it this months theme. In fact, my boyfriend gave me a prop to use as inspiration that I shared over on twitter. Well, here it is my July bullet journal spreads.
Here you can see my July page, I will admit I had a hard time figuring out how to get the depth I wanted on the lemon slice due to my limited color choices, but I ended up liking how it turned out. It feels so positive, bright, and happy. I also loved these flowers so I needed to showcase them as well.
Here you can see how I set up my monthly overview plus a little sneak peak into two of the blog posts I already have scheduled. I never write my blog posts in order, but it works for me! I am debating if I want to reprint the images of the book stacks I used last month or not. I figured I have time to decide so I left it pretty much blank.
On the left hand side you can see my TBR pile image. I posted it on instagram so instead of rewriting everything I decided to just print it out and paste it in my bullet journal. A funny about The Invisible Man, I accidentally read the wrong one and I was so confused as to why it was not science fiction. I borrowed it from the library digitally and they did not display the author, but it was so funny when I finished The Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison I enjoyed it, but I was so confused. But, I do plan on “fixing” this by reading the H.G. Wells novel by the same name soon.
On the left hand side I cleaned up my Read 5 Buy 1 tracker, I like this cleaner set up a lot more. On the right hand side I updated my tracker to not only track how many times I go to the gym, but also if I study and drink the amount of water I need to drink. As you can see I do not strive to do it everyday. I never go well with changing my own patterns all in one go, so this is how I operate.
A few months ago I participated in the OWLs readathon I met all my requirements to become a potions master and I am eligible to take my NEWTs in August, but my friend Amy wanted to participate so I told her I would do it with her. So as you can see I completed 5 already, this month I am focusing on working on the exams I did not complete. For each I write the title of a book or short story that would work for each prompt. As you know, I never stick to a TBR so this should be interesting.
What theme should I try in the future?
What is something you track in your bullet journal?
