Hello lovelies! I hope you are having an amazing week. Is it just me, or does it feel like March flew by in a snap?! I feel like I’m always saying this… but it’s true! =/ Spring is finally here
not really because it’s been snowing every weekend; the thoughts and dreams of warmer weather bring cheeriness to our lives, agreed?
Today you’ll get to take a peek at my April 2018 BuJo set up AS WELL as my monthly recap for the month of March. Let’s do this!
The first thing I did was design the cover page for the month. I went with a minimalist, black and white, floral spread. Sadly, it is a little tilted, but at first glance it looks fantastic, imo 😛 I added the days of the month below the title header.
Next I added a monthly calendar layout. I personally didn’t know what to do with this page, so I just made simple vertical, rectangular boxes. I didn’t have a good ruler, so I couldn’t precisely measure the boxes. 😩 It’ll have to work, though.
On the page opposite the monthly spread I added a habit tracker. This includes habits for amount of water intake, exercise, gratitude, and my teeth cleaning routine. I added all the days of the month to each individual section and will colour in or mark off the day if I completed that section. I’ll probably add more to this page.
The next thing I added was a goals spread. This was actually placed before the main April chunk, but I wanted to put it in here anyways. I made 6 boxes with goals I want to accomplish in 2018, one of those being to read 50 books.
The “reading list” spread will be where I write the names of the titles of books so I can see what I read. I’ve yet to add the 26 books I’ve read so far!
The last thing I added was a weekly spread. I didn’t have too much inspiration for this page – I wanted to keep it minimalist and bold. As you can tell, I totally butchered the dates at the top. Oh well 😛 I added the days of the week, a section for notes, and a then an inspirational quote on top that says “The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.” It kind of got smushed, lol.
9. I’m actually *shocked* 😮 as to how many books I actually read this month. I felt like I was barely reading anything, but here we are! These are the titles of the books I divided into this past month of March:
Prisoner of the Pyrenees (Hedgcock) // Love Comes Softly #1 (Oke) // The Hungry Year (Crook) // Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (translated by Tolkein) // Sarah Plain and Tall (MachLachlan) // Skylark (MachLachlan) // Wilfred Grenfell: Arctic Adventure (Finlayson) // Girl Defined (Clark, Baird) // Mara, Daughter of the Nile (McGraw)
I am currently in the midst of reading 4 different book series – it’s been funny because each time I finish a book, the next one in the series is from another series that I’ve been waiting to read, and so on! As you could probably guess, there are a lot of scenes and plots playing through my head 😛
Guysss I feel so guilty -this month was pretty quiet for posts… if you include this one, I only posted 5 times in March! How. is. that. even. real? I was hoping that I could post more but it just didn’t work by way of scheduling. My deepest apologies. (TO APRIL!) Take a look at the stats and all that fun stuff, you stalker 😛
stats for march:
233 followers // 800 views // 300 visitors // 160 likes // 80 comments
most popular post of the month:
This one got a lot of views, I’m guessing its because people really want to know HOW TO DO THINGS. We are lost half the time – overwhelmed with expectations, assignments, anxiety… the list goes on. This post was one of those that *I hope* helped you.
my personal favorite post of the month:
This one was really fun to do… finding random facts about me was pretty tricky! I always love learning new things about people, and I hope you guys learned some new things about me!
(GO CHECK THOSE POSTS OUT IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY!)
March was my birthday month(!!) I received so many birthday wishes and gifts which I’m so grateful for! I didn’t have a party, but we did go out for brunch, which was amazing. Yay! I’m officially one year older *whoop whoop* 😀
I’ve been going through a ton of weird stomach issues which has sucked and caused me to lose sleep and concentration at times so that’s been fun! =/
Nothing big happened this month… I feel like maybe I should write the things I do daily down so I can actually have things to put here? Next month… 👌
That’s it for today! I feel like this post was longer than it was originally going to be but THATS OK! I hope you enjoyed tagging along with me as I planned my BuJo for the month of April and recapped March!
