February Bullet Journal & Updates
It’s hard to believe we’re into February already. January just flew by. It’s been rough getting blog writing done. I’ve got a small list of post ideas, but actually sitting down and writing them up is a different story.
Well, today I pulled out my laptop for the first time since last summer (I’ve been working on my tablet). The battery died on my poor ASUS sometime last year and I have to stay plugged in to work on it so the tablet has just been easier. I do miss working on a laptop instead of my tablet, but the loss of mobility on the laptop keeps me from using it. I’m trying to save up for a new one, but that’s slow going at the moment.
For now, I’m making it work. I’ve been keeping things going well with my Bullet Journal. Below you can see this month’s layouts that are posted up on Instagram. Using my Bullet Journal has really been helping me keep on track better with life in general. It’s also a nice little creative outlet when I’m too burnt out to focus on writing or reading.
Raring and ready for February, got the first few monthly pages set up and ready to go. Trying a different monthly layout, I didn't use January's layout very much so I think this one will be better suited for me. Same with a general notes page instead of weekly sections. For week 5 I went back to my week 2 layout for now. Really loved that layout and it worked well for me. #Bujo #bulletjournal #February #monthlyspread #weeklyspread #budgetplanner #gratitudejournal
Other news: been plucking away on my novel. Also slow going, but I’m trying to balance long work weeks, family, and not burning out. I had scrapped a draft a few months ago and have since gotten a good chunk of my words back. I’m feeling much better about this draft so far and I feel the story is much better developed this time around.
It’s a bit late in the day, but I’m going to try to plunk out another post today to go out later in the week. I won’t be getting much done this week I anticipate. It’s tech week at the theatre, we open on Saturday. Lots more late nights and long hours this week. I’m also doing some time at the other job this week so even less rest that I may have gotten.
Wish me luck and I’ll try not to be gone too long this time.
