4th of July Bullet Journal Weekly Spreads 2022

Man it feels good to be back!! I have not created or posted a bullet journal blog post since the beginning of the year. I truly missed it but also needed the break. I was busy with work and honestly uninspired to create more spreads than what I was using in my personal bullet journal. In this blog post I am sharing 4 different 4th of July weekly bullet journal spreads. I used both vertical and horizontal layouts for these spreads. 2019 4th of July Weekly Bullet Journal Spreads I plan digitally, using an iPad and the application  GoodNotes  and  Adonit Dash 3 Stylus  from Amazon. These spreads were made on GoodNotes5, but are easily exported to be used on GoodNotes4. If you are curious to why I plan digitally check out my blog post  Switching to a Digital Planner-Paperless Planning . Firework Horizontal: This first spread includes a box for each day of the week, a box for a tracker, quote or image, and a box for notes, to dos, and gratitude.

Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid Book Review

Reasons for Reading This Book: One of my requests for things I wanted to do on my birthday this year was go to thrift stores. The result of my thrift store adventure on my birthday was the purchasing of The Secret by Rhonda Byrne , The Body Book by Cameron Diaz , and Such a Fun Age my Kiley Reid .

This book was on my book list because I constantly see it on my Instagram explore page from other book Instagram accounts. As I have mentioned in some of my reason book reviews this year I made a list of topics that I want to read about. One of the topics is racism. The first book I read this year on the topic of race was Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi . I knew that Such a Fun Age was also centered around the issue of race but in a different way than Homegoing. When I had the opportunity to buy this book secondhand I knew I was meant to read it.  Content of

Our Country Friends by Gary Shteyngar Book Review

Reasons for Reading This Book: I read Our Country Friends by Gary Shteynahr for the reason that I am a member of The Readheads Podcast book club. This book was chosen for the April episode. After hearing the description given about the book when it was announced I was excited to read it. This was the first book I was reading that was about a pandemic and I was interested to see how a group of friends lives' looked when they quarantined together. I went into this book really excited about it. Content of This Book: A group of friends quarantine together in upstate New York during the pandemic. The group of friends are staying at a Russian-born professor/writer, his Russian-born psychiatrist wife, their K-Pop obsessed daughter's country house.
