Can you believe it’s nearly the end of September?! Time goes by so fast. Regardless of that fact, I’m happy to finally share my September BUJO layout with you.
If you didn’t know, I am just a beginner when it comes to setting up and using BUJOs. I decided to try one out and use it for my school planning instead of a regular planner, which I’ve always done. It took me so much time to set it up but I’m so happy with the results of my design!
I don’t quite remember what dot journal I chose because it didn’t have a brand name on it. I chose it because it was affordable and had good reviews on it. I’ve managed to design my BUJO up to November for now, so I’ve still got a bit ways to go. Anyway, here’s my September BUJO layout!
First of all, since I haven’t shown you the front pages of my BUJO, I’ll preface this post with those.
I feel the need to spread positive affirmations and encouraging words in my notebook to help me get through school. I prepared myself for the worst after coming out of Dental Hygiene, but that wasn’t actually the case once I started. It’s SO much better (I wrote a post about my first two weeks of school if you’re interested in reading that) but positive affirmations are always welcome regardless.
I set aside two pages so I could have a “year-long” view with all the months from September 2019 until the end of 2020.
I started September off with a monthly view so I can mark holidays and big personal to-do’s or events. I like having a monthly view even though I’m not a very busy person.
Next, I did a more detailed spread of my September view with my school schedule, goals, as well as splitting important dates between school and personal stuff. I felt it was important to write down what my schedule would look like every week, now that I have classes and a school job on top of my part-time hygienist job.
Since I bought tons of washi tape, I thought I’d line the start of every month with a different design of washi tape.
I love my little monthly view so I always have that floating somewhere on the page, even in my daily spreads.
I put doodles / encouraging blurbs at the top in my weekly spread to help me get through the week and not to make the top look so empty.
At the end page, I left a blank for the summary of accomplishments I may have done in the month as some sort of a reflection. It’s important not only to look ahead but to pat ourselves on the back for our previous accomplishments!
That’s it for my September BUJO layout! Hope you guys enjoyed viewing it, though it was pretty empty. Sorry for all the blanks, I took pictures of it before I started writing more in my dailies.
Thanks for reading! Until then ♡
