This isn’t going to be a long post, so please forgive me. I know I have been away for well quite some time, mostly I have been quite busy and haven’t been able to find the time to sit down and write. With the new year fast approaching and after turning 26 earlier this month, I realized a lot of things about myself. Things I want to change, improve about myself. So here I am. . .
I have decided that I will be making drastic changes to my life and the way I live it in order to become a better me. I also made the decision that I want to not only continue to use my Bujo but I wan’t to become more active with my blog and how I use it.
As you might have noticed my url and username are currently being changed over to Juniper Smiles this is to match my new Instagram I created the other day. I will be using my new IG to share my BUJO related creations. I will also share the occasional fitness updates/inspirations and my random crafts. I will however keep selfies and random things on my old IG that I was using previously. (once I figure out how to fix my IG widget that will be readded, until then please use my circle link to find my IG if you are curious)
….onto other things, I wanted to talk about my Bujo a little bit more, since that is of course the main reason we are all here. I have had quite an adventure picking a perfect Bujo for 2017. In my last updated I was using a Happy Planner, well not long after I made that post I soon realized I wasn’t a fan of the discs. I then hunted and got a Hobonichi. Unfortunately I was sent the A6 instead of the A5 I had ordered. I attempted to work with it, loving the paper, but finding it much tooooo small for my liking. Since I really wanted graph style paper but wasn’t a fan of the LT1917’s graph pages I opted for a Essentials Graph Notebook. The same Bujo my BFF swears by.
Well I recently got mine earlier this week and I have been in love with it. The pages are thicker than my LT1917 which makes me much more confident with my pens and highlighters. I really like the graph pages, however I do miss my numbered pages. I have since been actively planning and working on spreads for the new year. I will be posting a Bujo walk-through when it’s complete (for the most part) here, you can still see quick snapshots on my IG of my currently completed spreads.
I chose to focus on a few key things this year. These things being what I want to improve about myself the most. I will be altering my Bujo to include things focusing on mental and physical health, fitness, food, and my normal daily tracking. I want to start eating better, working out more, improving myself mentally as well since I admit I am far from perfect but I hope to work on those imperfections and make them easier to handle. I also want to focus on my art and crafting more as well, I feel I spend too much time on my computer playing video games which I will still do but hopefully less.
This post turned out much longer than I expected, I guess I had more to talk about than I thought. I will be sure to include much more information when I share my Bujo walk-through, hopefully soon. 🙂
