There are quite a few aesthetic changes to my bullet journal spreads this month. While I was doing my pages for this month, I decided that I enjoyed their functionality but had become bored with the way they looked and having to do the same exact thing every month and every week. Sooo… this month, I got fun and funky with fonts and ever so slightly crazy with colors. So, let’s get started!
As you can see, this month the calendar looks incredibly similar. The changes that I did make are harder to point out (unless you’re me and you look at them several times a day). The first change I made was the way I wrote out the days of the week. Last month they were in cursive, however, this month I’ve decided to attach each word to the ones before and after it. So, there is a constant flow.
Second, I decided to change up the Month’s label. Instead of the wreath, I was using before, I decided to go with a more antique-looking design.
Again. The quote is written in cursive. This month’s quote is “Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.” I absolutely love this quote because it fits this week’s design so well. Instead of doing my generic or normal set up, I set my soul on fire and had some fun by switching things up a little bit.
The last of the changes to this page include cursive labels and “July” written in cursive. Both items are usually in a neatly printed font.
Weekly Set Up
Here is where things get truly fun and crazy. Each week of June is different—no two are the same! While the layout of the page is incredibly similar, there are differences. Let’s look!
Week One: May 29th – June 4th
For this week, I have stuck with the same 5 categories, as usual, Events/Appointments, To Do/Miscellaneous, Blog, Subscriptions/Bills, and Grocery List. I also kept the exercise and water trackers at the upper right-hand corner. However, instead of large flowy cursive week title, I have gone for something smaller and slightly chunkier. Then I have, in small thin lettering, wrote “WK 1” on the finishing line of “June.” I have gone with a similar font for the label “Goals” and the daily labels as well.
Week Two: June 5th – June 11th
Week two is almost identical to week one. This is because I had not yet decided to make these layouts more fun for me. There are changes though. The first noticeable difference is the week title. June is written in a similar font, but is not as far to the left and is written a little less dramatically. I have also written out “Week Two” next to it in an all-caps print font. Goals has been changed to be all lower case and is written out a little smaller than the previous week
The category labels have also been switched over to a cursive that is very similar to my normal handwriting. Additionally, the weekly labels are more cursive and fancy, as well as, all lower-case lettering.
Week Three: June 12th – June 18th
Week three is where I decide to make more changes. I have now removed the subscriptions and bills category. I removed it because I no longer have any bills that are due any week other than the first of the month (I got rid of my gym membership because I just don’t have time). Because I had no bills due this week, have a section for them seemed like a waste of precious space.
Next, I moved back to all caps lettering for the category labels. But I stuck with lower-case cursive daily labeling.
For the week title, I moved to a more fun and chunky printed font that includes both upper and lower-case lettering. “week 3” is written the same size as “June” and “goals.”
Week Four: June 19th – June 25th
This week I kept the bills category left out and kept the category and daily labels the same as the week before. However, I kept a lighter touch on my pen to make the lettering slightly more dainty and thin.
The month title and “goals” are written in a small, dainty, but fancy, cursive. The pressure was so light on my pen that part of the “g” and “l” in “goals” did not show. These titles were also written smaller and I wrote out “week four” then added “…” to the end, just for fun and because I felt like it.
Week Five: June 26th – July 2nd
Week five, the final June week, I decided to almost entirely abandon cursive. The categories are all written in cursive, as well as “week five.” However, for the daily labels, “June,” and “Goals,” I have gone for a very futuristic and fun printed font. This font has as little detail as possible and is also more spaced out than my usual writing. The bills category, this week, is still left out.
Additional Pages: Apartment Planning and Sleep Tracking
These are pages that I don’t normally include but decided that I needed to add them for this month.
This month I found that I needed an apartment furniture checklist. I need this list because I am moving to North Carolina (from Michigan) at the end of the summer and am slowly collecting the furniture that I will need. It's easy to lose track of what I had already purchased and what I still need, so I made up the list.
I chose purple and yellow because I think that it is a fun and summery combination that still provides contrast enough for me. I chose to go with an elegant and flowy cursive font for the title and my normal handwriting for the list. The sun was added because I am currently loving summer and the sun made me happy.
Working midnights my sleep schedule has gotten very messed up. However, now I am managing an ice cream shop in addition to my midnight job. Just a week ago, I went 48 hours with only 6 hours of sleep in my system. I decided that I needed to find a way to track my sleep so that I know how much I am getting on average.
I chose a graph because visuals are very easy to look at and fun to make. Again, I went with a flowy and elegant cursive. I drew little closed eyes underneath “tracking” because I felt the space needed something and the eyes were a cute idea. The periwinkle is not a color I use very often, which is why I chose it. I paired it with the scarlet red because I wanted high contrast and enjoy the starkness of the red with the gentle periwinkle.
