When I was planning this setup and was looking for inspiration, I noticed that for September, almost everyone chooses an autumnal theme. Last year it was quite warm in September and according to meteorologists, the weather will be similar this year, too and it not the falling leaves and cool weather that this situation makes me think of, so I picked a floral-pastel theme.
This month, I changed the language of my bullet journal to English. Another change is that in this setup, I included a calendar-like page. Until now, I did have it, because I tried it last year but it didn’t work for me. This month though is going to be so busy that I found it necessary to have a page where I can keep track of the events.
I put down a sticker on the title page/cover page. For this, I downloaded a floral wreath illustration from freepic.com and edited the word “September” in the middle using picmonkey.com. I printed the design on sticker paper, cut it and placed it on the page.
For the next page, I chose a quote. I printed it on an A5 sheet of paper and adhered it to the page.
On the rest of the pages, I worked with Stabilo fine liners, Stabilo highlighters and watercolour paint. Unfortunately, I accidentally ripped the “Finances” page, so I put down a sticker to conceal the rip.
The washi tape I used on several spreads is from aliexpress.com.
In the video, you can see that on the “Thesis tracker” page, in the pencil version, I misspellt the word “analysis” and in the ink version, it looks really ugly. It happened because this is the part of my thesis that makes me terribly anxious and even the thought of the analysis makes me sick. I translated both of the articles easily and I did the analysis of the Engish to Hungarian translation, but the latter was such a painstaking job, took so much time and drained my brain so much that I’ve kept putting off doing the analysis of the Hungarian to English translation for weeks as thinking about it makes my hands shake. Fortunately, as a translator, I will only have to translate and I won’t have to do a deep analysis of my work.
