April Bullet Journal Setup

Hey y’all!

Things are very different nowadays, especially with our routines. With those changes, even our requirement in our bullet journals change.

For example, my outdoor activity is zero. My expenditure is VERY less. And I don’t really need to use my bullet journal daily, since I don’t find it hard to fit in all the things I need to do.

Usually I’d plan to do an assignment over two days but now I do it at once, because time required for travelling and getting ready to go out etc. has been freed up.

I barely used my bullet journal the last couple weeks of March, because my internship was paused and we’re all on lockdown. My internship has started back up now, though. So maybe I’ll use my bullet journal more? We’ll see.

This month’s setup reflects the current lifestyle with lockdown. It’s not very different, but it shows the changes.

The cover page is simple. Since there was a ton of white-space, I doodled a little bit on the borders. I had a little bit of time to spend on it so I doodled ice creams! I’m not really an ice cream fan but the doodles look cute.

The next spread is almost the same as last month’s. I debated on whether I should keep the monthly log because I have no outdoor events to keep up with. My March monthly log is mostly a record what happened instead of a plan of what is going to happen. In the end, I just kept it. It’ll probably only be used for logging events that I may want to look up later.

The right side are my trackers as usual. I swapped my “went out” tracker for a “work out” tracker. During internship I used to walk for about an hour everyday during commute but since I’m at home now, I’m working out. Mainly just to keep my body a little active.

The last page is my blog schedule tracker, which looks the same as usual.

The one missing spread this time is my expense tracker. I don’t go out and my mum does grocery shopping so I barely spend. This is the first time in three years that I’ve not made an expense tracker. I decided that even do spend, it will be very few times, so I’ll just write it down in my March expense tracker spread. It has quite some space since my logging stopped on 16th.

Funnily, I had made a 2-page tracker last month because I spend more now that I’m getting a stipend. If everything was as usual, I would have fully used both pages. But now only one of the pages is filled. The other page is empty.

What are the significant differences in your life, besides the staying-at-home part? What are the changes in your normal routine like food, sleep, etc?

  1. It looks so pretty! 😍 I started my first ever bullet journal the other day and I’m really enjoying myself with it because it’s been ages since I did some art ✨ I’d say there has been a significant change in my sleeping pattern, it’s much more difficult to drift off but I often wake up earlier than I used to 😴 Great post! Take care πŸ’•

  2. I love how simple and adorable your cover page is! It’s surreal thinking how much everyone’s lives have been impacted this month. I’ve had more free time, and I’ve actually been thinking about finally bullet journaling. What type of journal do you use, if you don’t mind me asking? It’s nice to have a reference haha πŸ˜….
    Lovely post, Sumedha! Stay safe πŸ™‚.

    1. Thank you!
      I use a simple dot grid notebook that I found on Amazon.in (which is local, for me). Any normal notebook should work. I suggest using plain, grid, or dotted pages πŸ™‚

  3. I love your April bullet journal setup! The doodles of the desserts are super cute. It is pretty cool to see your habit tracker and blog schedule! It is kind of hard to go out right now with everything going on. Maybe it is good for us – or maybe bad if we are gonna be online shopping a lot lol! Thanks for sharing the spread!

  4. You have a very beautiful bullet journal! My days have changed quite a lot, despite being a very homey person now i’m getting a little overwhelmed with everything because all the days seem the same. I just hope this can end soon and get back to life as it was, but safelyπŸ’–

  5. wow, really pretty! I live in France, we’re on complete lockdown over here, so my bullet journal looks very different to what it used to.. right now it’s much more of a journal than a planner, I figure it’ll be interesting to look back at this surreal time in the future.
