Happy Wednesday! I’m in a fantastic mood because I have my favorite study space on campus all to myself.
When I first started carrying a notebook, I didn’t have any kind of system. I’ve always liked lists so that’s how I recorded information: as bullet points.
My system has evolved substantially over the years. I have used the official Filofax diary refills (especially the week on two pages). I started making my own after a while to suit my needs. I worked on the layout below for months before I was happy with it. Aston nostalgia
Once I solidified my design, I started printing my own.
Around this time, I came to realize that I was using my journal less and less. I always used a weekly in addition to a monthly spread and my Google calendar. I really felt that I needed all 3, but it was becoming a chore. I cared more about the aesthetics than the function (not that anyone ever saw it but me).
I knew something needed to change when I found myself going days at a time without even pulling my planner out of my bag. Fortunately, I had a lovely the-teacher-will-appear moment a couple of weeks ago.

It’s beautiful. It’s easy, simple, and best of all versatile. It can be as minimal or complex as you wish. It can even change day-to-day. Some days will only call for simple check boxes; on others I will utilize multiple designating icons.
If you haven’t watched the video yet, voila:
Whelp, this post is long enough. I’m currently holding off on sharing my current layout because it’s still so new. Thanks for reading.
Next up: pens!
