The month of July marks a halfway point in the year. Here we are, already halfway through 2019. How crazy is that? If feels as though the year has begun just yesterday!
As you know, one of the ways I stay organized in my busy life is my bullet journal. It is my primary organizational system. I also keep a calendar book and a white board calendar, but these days I use them scarcely.
While June has ended, so has my previous bullet journal. Each journal I create is divided for every six months; this allows me to use as many pages for spreads as I need. I get to start fresh and try out new layouts and themes!
January-June's bullet journal is a Leuchtturm1917 A5 dotted hardcover notebook. I went for a more minimal layout compared to my July-December 2018 journal. I used color predominantly in the weekly and daily spreads. You can check it out here.
For July-December's journal, I used a Lemome A5 dotted notebook with a pen loop. This notebook has super thick pages and I experience no bleeding at all. There is only no pre-printed index or numbered pages like the Leuchtturm, you'll have to make them yourself. There is only one ribbon bookmark in the Lemome compared to the two in the Leuchtturm. However, this Lemome notebook comes with tabs to further organize your journal and a standard back folder.
For the Jul-Dec journal, I wanted even more minimalism. I start grad school in the fall and I wanted something I could keep accountable for with a part time job, a full time job, and a full time school schedule. I chose a black and white theme mostly inspired by YouTuber's AmandaRachLee, Shayda Campbell, Mariana's Study Corner, and Caitlin's Corner. I also took some inspiration from Pinterest (check out my board!).

The next big project for my bullet journal will be a student section. I am starting a new chapter in my life; graduate school. I want my transition back into an academic environment to be be a smooth one. The graduate program is tedious and I need to stay on top of my tasks. I've been looking at student bullet journal inspiration and doing mockups. It's almost complete! Stay tuned! You can check out my inspirations here.
