February Book Review 2019: Turtles All the Way Down

My Reasons For Reading This Book For starters both my mom and my roommate had read Turtles All the Way Down by John Green .

The freezer items in my weekly grocery haul that come in plastic are deli ham, frozen chicken tenderloins, vegetables, pepperoni, and pizza crusts. For some of these items

Movie Bullet Journal Spread Ideas

One of my favorite things to track in my bullet journal is the movies that I have watched. I wouldn't say that I am a movie buff, but I sure do love a good movie night. If you have seen any of my weekly spread updates on my Instagram then you will know that I have a movie night at least once a week. If you are in need of some movie related bullet journal spreads then this is the blog post for you. As I have mentioned before I plan digitally, using an iPad and the application  GoodNotes  and  Bargain Depot Stylus 2 Pack  from Amazon. If you are curious to why I plan digitally you should check out my blog post  Switching to a Digital Planner-Paperless Planning . Movie Tracker #1 This first tracker is the first movie tracker I ever created when I switched to planning digitally. As you can see I basically filled the page. For this spread I went with a traditional yellow and red color scheme to mimic the colors of a popcorn box. Compared to the current movie spread that I am us
