Monthly Set Up: Digital Bullet Journal

This blog post will explain how I set up my bullet journal for a new month. Since I plan digitally, if you are curious for why I do that check out my blog post Switching to a Digital Planner- Paperless Planning, my set up for a new month does not take long at all. After my first month of digital planning I started creating monthly templates, which then lessens the time I spend on it even more. In this blog post I included images of the templates and what the spreads look like at the end of the month.

I plan using the application GoodNotes. I highly recommend this application for anyone interested in planning digitally. The price is worth it. The styluses I use are either the Pilot G2 Pen Stylus or the Bargain Depot Stylus 2 Pack.

Monthly Trackers

The first spread I paste into my digital bullet journal is my monthly trackers. Over the past few months this spread has changed to include different habits that I want to specifically track for that month. Most recently this spread has become stagnate and include a tracker for the number of hours I spend working on my blog, when I post on Instagram and if I ate 100% low fodmap. I have created templates for this spread that include 30 and 31 days.

Monthly Workout Calendar/Tracker

The next spread I use is one that I created for my blog post Bullet Journal Fitness and Workout Spread Ideas. This spread is where I track what and when I workout out. For more information on it check out the blog post.

Monthly Review

Though out each month and at the end of each month I fill out a monthly review page. Some of the things I include in this page are the book I read that month, I review a book each month on this blog, the TV show or series I watched the most that month, what I was obsessed with listening to, memories from that month and lastly what I achieved that month. Recently I started becoming more creative with this spread and started adding a quote that summed up or reflected that month.

Monthly Spending

This last spread is really simple looking and solely serves the purpose of just a place for me keep track of what I purchased or spent money on that month. I never intend to share this filled out spread on my instagram @whenishouldbestudying. I don't share this spread for two reasons, I don't what to make public what I spend money on and I don't take that time to make this spread pretty so why would anyone want to look at it.

Reasonable Dorm Room Cleaning Schedule

Reasonable Dorm Room Cleaning Schedule After my first semester of college I have developed a cleaning routine that I have been able to keep up with. You can read my previous blog post about What I Learned In My First Semester of College . Over the past few months I have experimented and I am confident in the routine that I have created.  Personalize When it comes to personalizing the schedule you could add or take out the different chores. For example I also wash my retainers weekly and monthly my roommate and I decorate the marker board on the outside of our door. We also only clean our mirrors when needed since we have found that they do not seem to become too dirty regularly. Something that I would make sure you sanitize every week would be the surfaces that you are constantly touching. That means light switches, door handles, and your desk. By doing this I managed to avoid getting sick when my roommate and other floor mates go sick. Another task that you could add to y

Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus Book Review

Reasons For Reading This Book: Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus was Jackie's choice for the month of October. Jackie is the host of The Readheads Podcast Book Club. This is a monthly podcast book club that I have been apart of since it was established in 2020. I love getting to hear the thoughts of the hosts each month.  Content of the Book: Elizabeth Zott is a chemist but is much more than meets the eye. She is not only beautiful but also extremely smart, confident, strong, and not afraid to beat to her own drum. Elizabeth is one of the only female chemists working at Hastings Research Institute. She is viewed as different by everyone there. It's there that she meet Nobel-Prize nominated chemist Calvin Evans. Calvin who falls in love with Elizabeth is described as a loner, grudge holder, and extremely brilliant. Fast forward a few years and Elizabeth is now a single-mother working as the host of the most watched cooking show, Supper at Six . With Elizabeth's ways of
