PLAN WITH ME: February Bujo Set-Up // a glance at my yearly spreads

New year, blank slate.

Alas, that also means a new bullet journal! After my first year of bullet journalling and finding the system that works best for me, it’s now time to put that 365 days of “experience” into the next.

Today, I’ll be showing you my February set-up and of course, my yearly ones too. Hopefully this will give you some inspiration if you do bullet journalling as well 😉

Let’s dive right in, shall we? *hup*

Farewell January // overall struggling, textiles competition + finally living up to my niche

How. Is. It. One. Month. ALREADY.

I feel like it’s yesterday that I went screaming (like always) about how I’m so not ready for 2019? Honestly, I’m still not sure why this happened, and I don’t think I ever will be able to. January was… a difficult month – definitely a rocky start to the year.

There’s several things I want to cover in this post, so I hope that this won’t be your typical long monthly wrap up posts you see here.

This may be the start of a memorable bookish year.

Of all the things that are going on in my life right now, I can confidently say that books are having a positive impact.

3 Reasons Why Self-Reflection is Crucial to Making the Most Out of Every Experience // life updates

They say new year is a time to set new goals and resolutions.

Me? I believe that setting goals is important, but it is as crucial as reflecting on our own past. Sometimes making resolutions and reflections can be stressful for you, and that’s okay – trust me, I understand completely. I’m always on the look for ways to be a productive potato all awhile maintaining my own personal wellness and not working itself overload.

Today, I’m going to share some reasons why I feel self – reflection is important, and how those may help make the process less stressful. I hope that you’ll find one or two points that may be of use to you! I know that I’m only sharing 3 points, but I feel like they are important ones that have inspired me, and hopefully they’ll do the same to you.

2018 In Review: Most Memorable + Least Memorable Moments of 2018 ft. lots of screaming, revelations + sentiments

Y’all, it’s December. Aka last month of the year.

I’m still (extremely) confused as to how time works, because it seems like it was just yesterday that I screamed about how 2017 was going to end*? Is it just me when I say that sometimes 1 hour feels like forever yet looking back at a month seems like 5 minutes? Oh, I don’t know what time is anymore.

Anyways, since it’s the last month of the year do we need to be reminded again lol, instead of doing a Farewell November and December post (month wrap-up), I’ll be splitting it all AND including notable moments of 2018 into several posts as a mini-series called 2018 In Review!

Now, may I invite all to witness Kimberly screaming (yet again) as she struggles to remember what happened over the last 365 days. It’s fun to watch, really.
