My first Bujo:
For my first bujo journal, I used the Moleskine Classic, but the pages are narrow/small for my taste and layouts. For my new bullet journal, I ordered the bigger version of the Moleskine Classic, the Moleskine Classic – Extra Large Dotted. I can’t wait to start using it and decorating it!

This is my last week of summer freedom, college classes start next week. Since the pages of my new journal are going to be bigger, I wanted to try different to do and study layouts for my school assignments.
I hope you find these layouts helpful and interesting!
I like to practice my layout ideas on a separate piece of paper, to avoid ruining my journal pages. I divided the paper in half to make it seem like the real pages of my journal.
On the left side, I put “this week’s [assignments].” I like to color code my classes. Blue is going to be for my physics class, green for my medical botany class, light blue for my statistics class, and pink is for my history class.
On the left side of the page, I’m going to write the classes with the assignments that I need to complete that week. On the same page, I write the day the assignment is due. This helps me keep track of which assignments need attention first.
I like to list my to-dos with squares. The “!” is for extremely important assignments or for due really soon assignments.
Every time I push an assignment for the following week, I put a “>”. If I moved it 3 weeks ahead, I put “>>>” That way when I see too many arrows, I know that assignment needs immediate attention.
When I do a little bit of an assignment I fill half of the square. When I complete the assignment I fill in the whole square and cross off the assignment.
Some assignments require more detail than others. For example, when I write an Essay, I write in the sub assignment section details that need to be included in that paper. 3 different sources, double spaced, and/or references.
On the right page of my journal, I’m going to write a study plan to accomplish all the assignments for that week. I like this idea because it forces my brain to not fall behind.
I drew the class word in different ways to see which style is more productive for me. You can draw the box and write the assignment with the color you assigned for that class or you can put a dot with the color of the class or you can draw the boxes with the colors of the classes.
This is another way to organize your assignments and you weekly dues. Can you tell I’m a big fan of color coding? (lol).
This is another way to draw you weekly study plan.
I drew the classes-color coding in different ways to see which one I liked more. I think I’m going to keep the dotted one.
