Setup for New Bullet Journal #5 (August 2018)

Setup for New Bullet Journal #5 (August 2018)
Hey, it's August! Not only have I set up for the new month, I've also transitioned into a new bullet journal (which also happens to align with my transition into my senior year of high school). Since this is my fifth bullet journal, I've got my system down pretty solid, so setting up this new bujo was fairly simple. Anyway, without any further ado, keep on reading to see my setup for my new bullet journal and for August 2018!

July 2018 Bullet Journal Setup

July 2018 Bullet Journal Setup

My laptop has been having issues, so I am finally now able to show you guys my July bullet journal setup. I set up and took the pictures before I left for China in the middle of June, but my laptop couldn’t connect to the internet; consequently, I was unable to post this in a timely manner like I planned. I just got back last week, soI’m still recovering from jet-lag. I know it’s near the end of the month, but hey--better late than never!

June 2018 Bullet Journal Setup

June 2018 bullet journal setup

Hey!! I'm on summer break now!! Now, it's time to set up my bullet journal for June. I've felt bad because I've been so inconsistent this school year in terms of posting here (throwback to when I actually posted every week), and I'd like to post more since school has ended. However, that's probably not going to happen considering I'm going to be in China on vacation from June 16th to July 18th. Anyway, regardless of all that, here's my bujo setup for June!

How to Know When It's Time to Change Your Bullet Journal System

How to Know When It's Time to Change Your Bullet Journal System

I've said this so many times about the bullet journal, but one of my favorite things about the system is that you can do pretty much do whatever you want with the system. Because you make things yourself, you have the freedom to create everything to your own tastes. However, something I've definitely fallen into the trap of (and I'd assume others have, too) is sticking with things in my system just because I feel like have to, and this can lead to a bujo slump. Today, I'll be discussing how to know that it's time to change something up your bullet journal system.

May 2018 Bullet Journal Setup

May 2018 Bullet Journal Setup

Now that it's almost May, I am preparing my bullet journal for the coming month. April has been fairly busy, and with AP exams and finals coming up, I know that May is going to be even busier. At least I know that after all of this, I'll be on summer break! Anyway, here is my May 2018 bullet journal setup!

PSA: Stationary vs. Stationery

PSA: Stationary vs. Stationery
In today's PSA post, I will be talking about the difference between "stationery" and "stationary" and when each one should be used. These two words are not only confused within the bullet journal/planner/calligraphy communities, but it is also a grammatical error that I see with people in general.

Stationary

Stationary with an A is an adjective used to describe something that's not moving. For example, "The toy car remains stationary when it runs out of battery."

Stationery

Stationery with an E is the thing we love so much--a category of objects often associated with office or school supplies that includes notebooks, notepads, pens, pencils, etc. For example, "I need to get new stationery before the school year starts."

How to Remember Which is Which

I think the difference in meaning between the two is fairly clear, so it's more of a matter of remembering which spelling indicates which definition. Here's one way to remember:
  • Stationary with an A is an adjective
  • Stationery with an E is something we get excited about (even though it can be expensive)
That's it; I hope this short little guide was helpful for distinguishing between "stationary" and "stationery!"
