Bullet Journal: How I Create My Spreads

One of the things that I’ve noticed in the bullet journal community is that people tend to ask for spread ideas or how to make a layout they like work for them. I’ve seen articles that are lists of layout and spread ideas, but I haven’t seen anything about how to come up with your own spread. So I decided to put my creation process out there.

Total Bird Brain

I have a bird brain now. No, I’m not stupid or shallow now. What I mean is that I’m really getting into bird watching right now. Part of it is because I just finished a lab in my biology course that involves watching the birds at the feeder for certain interactions. My group decided to watch the interactions between the Brown Headed Nuthatch and two woodpecker species, the Downy and the Red-Bellied. It was interesting to watch the species interact, but it was also interesting to watch the other birds that I wasn’t studying interact. These are just a few observations I noted.

So Many Pens!

I love pens. I love how there are different inks and different designs and the regional differences of pen design. Pens are just really interesting to look at and think about. I know it sounds slightly nuts and probably a bit boring, but I’m serious. I love going to the office supply store and looking at all the different pens and if there is anything new (there usually isn’t, things get added and such about twice a year). This past year, I have gradually fed my pen addiction. These are my current favorite pens.

Just a Quick Update

Hey Y’all, it’s me. I know I haven’t posted anything in a couple of weeks, but I’m focusing on school work and making sure I don’t get behind. I did manage to get left behind a little bit last week, but like any decent jumper (think horseback riding and getting left behind over a jump, not fun) I recovered decently to at least get through the week.

Remember to Unwind

So it has been a stressful week back at school. I hate “welcome to class” week, you know that week where you get the syllabus and your teacher/professor is just going over the syllabus or giving that basic information that is helpful, but feels like nothing. I just went through that week and felt many things. I felt like I was still chomping at the bit to get going, but I also felt like I was being thrown into the deep end and just barely treading water, more on that and why is for a different post. But I found myself getting tenser and tenser as the week went on, so I had to de-stress myself to get back to where I wanted to be mentally. I hope this post helps you, my dear reader, to remember to breath and unwind.

Be A Pigeon

Animals are amazing, especially those that live in the city. If you think about it, humans are an invasive species. We kill off animals and devastate natural habitats to fit our needs. Much like kudzu, the plant that ate the south, we take over when we move in. But what happens to those animals that have no choice, but to live among us. I’m not taking about our cats and dogs. I’m talking about what we consider vermin.
