Almost there! As I/we get closer to the end of #onebookJuly2016, I’m wondering how many others out there are ready to break out their other notebooks and play with them again. I know I am. But there are 6 days left in this challenge, so onward!



Not a lot of new developments over the last week. I have noticed I’m not writing my blog posts like normal. I’ve been scrambling to get posts together this month and I wonder if it’s because I’m worried I’ll run out of room in my books.

This has also lead me to not work on my goals as much this month. I suspect this final week of July I’ll be trying to crank them out. Not working on my monthly goals has left me feeling like I haven’t done much this month, but if I look back at my Bullet Journal, I know I have gotten a lot done. Just nothing towards my goals.

I haven’t been journaling that much, but life got a little crazier than normal, so I’m still using the colletto. The green, black, and purple inks are hanging on.

There are 95 pages in my Bullet Journal insert for dailies and journaling. I’m on page 77. Almost there! It will be cool to have a single book for the month.

I didn’t do my weekly set up until Tuesday, and I didn’t fill it in completely and ALMOST missed something at work.

I’ve more or less given up on decorating. No washi tape or stickers have been seen since July 19th. Ooops.

Not going to lie. I’m ready for it to be over, because I want to use my smaller sizes again and I want to play with the new Foxy Fix Marina Le Petit #5 I have….

    Wish I took more time like you do to put stuff into a notebook or journal

    To be fair it is the first time I hear about #onebookJuly thingy, and it sounds interesting and made me do a little google-styled investigation. Also, it’s so nice to see people who actually have enough patience to go through challenges and present their progress. So keep up the good work 🙂

    I’m not a journaler. I can spend an entire year and only make it halfway through one book. I’m always impressed with people who can write way more than that !

    Hope things calm down soon. I have been kind of changing up the way I’m writing lately. Still not really putting pen to paper that often unless it’s a to-do list.

    I use a bullet journal and a happy planner. It sounds like you are trying to fill up one notebook for the month. Do you normally do that?

      No, I don’t normally do that. This is the first month I’ve started a notebook with the intention that it was only for July. Most of my other journals span many months and some span years.

    It’s easier for us to think we’re not getting things done because we know how much more there is to accomplish. From the outsider’s perspective, you did a ton.

    I really should work on journaling more! I can’t imagine filling one up in a month.
