May The Force Be With You | Star Wars Themed May Bullet Journal Set-Up

With all of this time on my hands, I decided to be a bit more adventurous with my bullet journal theme for May. Star Wars was a key part of my childhood and I still get excited by the anticipation of new films. This post is only going to be a short one, although I hope you enjoy it.

My cover page is quite simple, though the Star Wars font is recognisable. On the left hand page I decided to do a quote from Yoda: ‘Do or do not, there is no try’. I decided on this as my motto for May because I want to put a lot of effort into everything I do. That includes schoolwork, blogging, music and more.

I’m sure I won’t be using the calendar page for anything other than birthdays and blogging. However it is nice to have! Especially if my school start doing online classes and video calls. Though they’re not the most tech-savvy, so I don’t really know if that will happen haha. 

These are the pages I put effort into, my habit and mood tracker. Usually I don’t keep up with these but I’m going to this month! (linking back to previously – there is no try). 

My habit-sabers are going to be where I track the habits I want to get into daily. Most of these I’ve got into a routine of doing, but tracking them down helps motivate me to carry on. Here are all of the things I want to track in my bullet journal for May:

  • Reading the Goldfinch (more on that in another post)
  • Practise my cello
  • Morning yoga
  • Writing for my blog
  • Catching up on other people’s posts
  • Reply to notifications and comments
  • Following my morning routine
  • Getting ready for bed at 8:00pm
  • Duolingo

We couldn’t have a spread without a bit of wordplay! If you watch Star Wars, you may be aware of the quote ‘that’s no moon’ in reference to the Death Star. For my mood tracker I crossed out the ‘moon’ and put ‘mood’ instead, since it’s where I’ll shade in my emotions. As the Death Star is grey, I’ll be colouring each section in a different shade of grey. If I do fill it in, hopefully it will end up looking like an authentic Death Star.

Now, those are all of the spreads for May! I will be adding in more as the month goes on, such as a TBR spread and blog post ideas etc. However I’m nearing dangerously close to the end of this bujo. At this rate, I imagine I’ll have to buy a new one for June! So keep your eyes peeled for more bullet journal content (setting up my new bullet journal!)

Do you have a bullet journal? What do you want to achieve in May?

May the force be with you,

April Bullet Journal Set-Up | Exciting New Video!

Instead of the usual chatty blog post, this month I decided to share my bullet journal set-up in a video. I hope to do more of this in the future… possibly every month? You can see the video on IGTV here.

For those of you who can’t get on to Instagram, here’s a little summary:

This month’s theme is large, pink flowers. I decided it on a whim, not particular thinking about its correlation with the month of April. It was very easy to draw and I did so while watching Miranda! I absolutely adore that show. Instead of using the traditional bullet journal ‘hand-lettering’, I went for this bold bubble letter font. 

My calendar spread was kept simple and, for those of you recreating, the squares are 6×6 dots. I like this page to be functional so I don’t busy it with lots of doodles. Again, I used the bold font and bright flowers for the background.

Now, I don’t usually do these trackers. However I do have more time and hopefully I’ll keep up with it! My goals for this months are working out, yoga, reading 100+ pages a day, practising my cello, less than an hour on my phone and writing. 

On the left of this I have my ‘book’s read’ spread. Hopefully I’ll fill the whole page up, motivating me to start writing reviews again. This past month I have been in a reading slump and it was super hard to get out of. But now I’m reading more, hopefully I can push out more reviews for you! I love reading them but haven’t written one in a long time. 

That’s it for this month! I decided to keep it nice and simple (hopefully attainable) because I have a bad history of never filling in habit trackers or book charts etc. Thank you so much for reading, and watching if you can. I really appreciate the support I’ve received on my first video. Let me know in the comments if you liked it, and I’ll be sure to do more.

What are your goals for April? What amazing things did you achieve in March?
