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?
