Well, October, it's been fun [and stressful] but I think it's time to part ways for another year. So hello November, I hope we'll have as much fun as October was.

And with another month, you know what that means. It's time for another look inside my bullet journal to see how I've set it out to tackle November.

November is one of those months, that personally I don't have much on, so I didn't really know what to make this months theme. Halloween has gone and bonfire night is only five days into the month so it didn't feel right using those, and it's still too soon to be thinking about Christmas on my part so that was a no-go as well. But then all I had to do was step outside and the inspiration hit me.

We've seemed to miss the bulk of Autumn here in the UK and skipped straight to the frosty cold mornings, days and nights of Winter. So what better theme than frost, with a hint of Autumn leaves mixed in.

This months monthly spreads are a mix of the same as last month, some old ones from months ago and new ones as well.

First I have the calendar and 'events' pages on a double spread. I find that though some days I have nothing on, on others, I have loads so having more space than a tiny square to write everything I'm doing works out well. I tried to add a bit of colour marking on the weekends, as well as with the quote.

The quote this month is something I need reminding of sometimes. Plus "look up at the stars" kind of relates to my studies.

Next on a double spread are my pages to plan blog posts and set out my monthly goals. I hope to keep up to date with blogging this month as well as writing more about topics I'm passionate about. After a talk with Fran, it kind of hit me that I don't talk out enough about certain topics, there's a variety of reasons why but mainly it seems to come down to the fear of backlash and judgement, but I'm working to overcome it. A small step forward is still a step forward in the direction of travel!

As for my monthly goals, let's just not talk about last months since they never really seemed to be ticked off. I think how I had them set out last month was too structures for goals for me. Because though I thrive with structure, the set out made it seem like I wasn't doing much since there was so much space to write down goals that I just don't have the time for. So anyway I've got back to my mind-dump style goals page. Do you have any goals for this month?

And then finally we have my weekly spread. Nothing has changed here! It works so well for me, so it's staying till it no longer works.

So that's it for another month!

Do any of you have bullet journals? How do you use them? I'd love to see them if any of you post them anywhere.
