I'm not into bullet journals.  But I swear, yours are freakin' gorgeous

 

 

Thank you. I try to make them pretty but functional and while they take time to get done, it's relaxing. :) 

 

The package I'm waiting for has some notebooks I've been wanting to use to upgrade what I currently have. Combining my current journal with a traveler's journal to hopefully make organization a little easier for me.

Nice!

 

I've been thinking about splitting mine into two notebooks. One for long term tracking and one for daily/weekly/monthly. If I keep with the brand I've been getting (they're so pretty!), I'd have to transfer a bunch of year long trackers every couple of months.

 

The traveler's journal is smaller, right? I'll be interested in hearing how it goes. :)

It's actually the same size as the one I have now but I know you can get them in a lot of different sizes. 

 

Basically the traveler's journal is a cover for my leuchtturm1917 but with 2 loops so I can add in 2 notebooks. My plan is similar to yours. I want 2 80pg notebook for pages that will most likely never change (Birthdays, special dates, cleaning, and other comp lists), maybe a fitness one or a food one, and then I'll have my main, leuchtturm1917, for the yearly stuff and monthly/weekly/daily. 

 

I also bought a fountain pen and am super excited to use one of those!

August 4 & 5

 

Note sure why my day before stuff still showed up but whatever. Friday was book club, we actually had 1 book that EVERYONE read. We read 3 to 4 books a month so everyone reading one was awesome. Of course it was the Dresden book. :)

 

Saturday I got up early, took out the trash and went to the gym. Got home did my nails in a new matte top coat.  They look awesome. Did 2 loads of laundry,  a load of dishes, hand washed the rest of the dishes in the sink and cleaned off the kitchen counters. 

 

Ended the night watching movies, watching the Sounders win and doing some hand lettering in one of my bujos.

Challenge Review 

 

Total Points - 573/584

 

Wayfinding for the soul : 166/164 points

 

I did a great job following MOST of my routines. Once I pushed my bedtime back to 11pm things seemed to get a little better. 

 

Don’t be tricked by shiny things : 27/40 points

 

I was tricked by lots of shiny things. Eating at home and making food at home would probably help this a lot. 

 

Stronger than you think : 380/380

 

Changing to one exercise to help build the habit again is going pretty well.

I feel this way in Georgia around 10 months out of the year.  I will go outside to do things, if Mrs. H wants to. (NotAlways).  But if I'm given the option between indoors and outdoors, you might as well pretend I'm on a spaceship -- 'Cause I ain't going out there.

The fountain pen. I think I was expecting something magical...

All I got was a basic pen, that I have to fill with ink. I mean it writes smooth and all but it feels like a basic fine tip pen. I need more time to really play with it and probably watch some tutorials on how to actually use it.

I think that you probably have so many other beautiful pens and markers that the fountain pen is just something additionally jiggly and fiddly to deal with. I started with fountain pens and now have a zillion pens and ink colors to satisfy that pen urge... so it might be a duplicate experience for you?

I got a fine tip nib so maybe that's where I went wrong. I assumed it would be able to do the thin upstrokes and thick down strokes.  It does not do that.
