As it’s the last full week of January, it’s time to look ahead to February. With a new month, comes a new thing to try in my BuJo and I’m really excited about it!

For the past few months, I’ve been getting the Felicity Jane subscription box and I’m really happy to finally use some of the super cute things that came with my recent box. It features the adorable coffee loving gal, Reagan, who wears a pretty pink knitted cap and light blue sweater. When I opened the box, she was perfect for February since I did NOT want to go with a typical pink/red theme.

Gold and bright yellow is certainly not what brings to mind “February” and “Valentines,” but that is exactly what I wanted! ๐Ÿ˜‰ This is reflected the most in my weekly spreads, which I’m trying something new based on what I’ve seen a couple others do here in the Amino community.

Overall, I’m excited to see what February brings and record it in my BuJo!

Bye, 2017

2017 was certainly a rollercoaster of a year. It was chock full of political, racial/ethnic, and even ethical upheavels. Personally, 2017 was a ride with many ups and many downs. I think I traveled to see extended family and friends last year more than I did in the last five years thanks to my cousin getting married. 2017 brought new life to friends and saw the unfortunate passing of loved ones. Due to this travel and other factors (an inconsistant retail schedule, some physical, some were just excuses), a lot of the things I said I’d do got waylaid, put off, or weren’t completed (I’m looking at you, baby blankets). Inconsistency has been the bane of my existance for a majority of my life and something I struggle with constantly as a behavior of ADD. Thinking of this, I’m reminded of a quote by Thomas Edison that’s always resonated with me:

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

Trying New Things

I’m really excited for October and not just because of Halloween. I recently came across a lovely post (either in one of the Bullet Journal groups I’m in on Facebook or just browsing Instagram) for writing down thoughts for a Book of the Month (BOM) the individual was reading. It’s a pretty great idea so I’m going to give it a shot for the last three months of 2016 and see how it goes! Hopefully, it’ll let me get my points across better for any potential reviews I do, fingers crossed.

Another feature I’m giving a try in my journal is a time tracker inspired by Boho Berry. I think it might be nice–and a good idea–to see what I’m doing time-wise and how I can plan hobbies and fun time around appointments and work. The time tracker will probably need some tweaking to see what works and what doesn’t, but that’s the beauty of the Bujo system! You use what works and get rid of what doesn’t! :D
