Bullet Journal

The September Setup

I moved my Bullet Journal to another notebook. It became small since I now put EVERYTHING in it (work, reading collections, etc) and my new DIY notebook is A4, so everything will have its place. Here is what I have on September so far:

The calendar thing. I love the calendar thing.

Using one page per week, the spreads are very simple and not artistic at all. I’m keeping this just functional, and I also don’t have a lot of time to work on the spreads. Minimalism for now. Maybe on the holidays I’ll have more time to make something more interesting – thinking of trying something with watercolors, but too afraid to put on a spread because I don’t actually think the paper can handle much water.

Also, I’m thinking about experimenting with scrapbook things on the spread. For October, I mean. Lets just see how this goes.

’till next time.


The Guardian’s “The 100 best novels in English” challenge

Ok, so I’m doing this. Not putting any finishing goals yet, because it all depends on my budget to afford them.
Those in bold are the ones that I have already read, and those in italic are the ones I own.
Ps: I know there are two lists, one from 2003 (the one that I am using) and one from 2015. The only reason I chose the 2003 one is because it seemed more classical literature, which I like best.

Bullet Journal

The August Setup

the lady & the ink

So, yes. I’m posting. Since October things changed a lot in my life. I moved from São Paulo to a tiny horrible city in Santa Catarina, and already hate everyone here. Santa Catarina is a beautiful place, full of prejudiced and small minded people, which is a real shame (just to clear it out: I lived most of my life in Santa Catarina, before moving to São Paulo to study).

170819 06 The monthly page with calendar, space for goal tracking, bill payment tracking and tasks.

My bullet journal also changed a lot, as you can see. I no longer use a notebook (the Cícero notebook is really expensive now and I can’t afford it, so I made my own planner). And I’m now a minimalist, since I work 40h/week, no time can be found to make those nice and artistic spreads. It is actually working better as a bullet journal now.
