April Showers bring May BulletJournals

I finally bought a dotted, blue, moleskine to use as a bullet journal earlier in the month.

It was admittedly a bit of a whimsical purchase, but I tried using an A4 lined notebook I had, a smaller A5 sized one – was lucky enough to find an ORANGE gridded notebook in Waterstones, but didn’t get along with it thanks to the spiral running along the side.

Honestly, my heart had always been set on the Moleskine or the Leuchtturm 1917. One day this month I went into a gorgeous local stationery artsy-crafty type place called Ruddocks and was overwhelmed with shoppers delight when I saw it there.

April has been a rather difficult month, so I set my sights on May. It’s my favourite month of the year for reasons I just cannot fathom (!!!). Since then I’ve been trying to get to grips with what trackers will work best for me.

Endless lists of unachievable goals and deadlines have proven to be incredibly helpful at this time in my life, but I wanted to share with you the things I’ve been working on.

Okay, so I’m a little obsessed with the whole money making stuff at the moment, but it’s nice to be able to write something down once a day.

Small steps.

I have borrowed/own far too many books and although this is one of my favourite pages so far, it always highlights just how far behind I am on my reading! To make matters worse, I keep going to the library and adding to the collection!

Lots of my friends know how terrible I am at watching a film. This is a list of all the DVDs I currently own, and not unlike my other trackers – I’m hoping it will inspire me to take time to watch them and feel that little more educated about film. (Also, it can never hurt to watch Tony Stark one. more. time.)

May’s Diary spread as it looks at the moment. Honestly. I could have cried when my pen started smudging across the page. I think it had a lot to do with something I discovered not too long afterwards.

An achievement in itself, I present to you. The first pen that I have used until the ink ran out.
