Hello Planning Mashers!
Welcome to another October Bullet Journal setup, and this one is a very special one.

You probably already saw that this year, for my October, I chose a nature magic theme. I was really into it and quite enjoy setting it up and recording my Plan With Me.
You can check my October 2020 Bullet Journal Setup post if you want to see some inspiration for that theme.
However, something happened. Somebody accused me of copying another person’s design for my cover page!
As we were talking about it turned out I was accused of copying my friend’s cover that was also a wizard hat. I absolutely didn’t and thought it was completely ridiculous, after all, how many ways are there to doodle a wizard hat? My friend agreed, even though the person accusing me didn’t.
I decided to just forget about this unpleasant situation, but I must say – it did kind of spoil the whole Nature magic theme for me. I just kept remembering what happened every time I looked at it and it stopped bringing me joy.
So I decided to have more creative time and actually redo my October theme.
October Bullet Journal Theme
So what did I choose as a theme? You probably already guessed from the title – the ultra-popular game Among Us.
For a while now, I’ve watched Andy (my husband) playing it. I must say, the design of the characters and the animations are SO adorable!! I really found them super funny.
When I decided to redo the theme, Andy suggested this theme and I happily agreed. I also tried to play the game of course, and it’s super fun!
One more note about the theme before we get into planning. I decided to go black and white and pretty minimal, so the characters will be the only color there. It’s pretty different from what I usually do, but I’m excited to try out something new! As usual!
At the end of the post, I also gathered Among Us theme inspirations from other creators, so be sure to scroll down and check it out.
First of course my old friends Nuuna with it’s Cocoa Paper cover.
Given that I didn’t do anything too crazy for this theme, and tried to go pretty minimalist, there aren’t that many supplies I’m using.
All I used are my Sakura Pigma Micron fineliners for black and Zebra Mildliners to color the characters.
Ok, two more things I used – Tombow Fude pens to color large areas of black, and white acrylograph pens from Archer and Olive for white.
Acrylograph pens are a new product from Archer and Olive and I’m just starting to use them, completely in love with them to be honest!
The full review is coming to the blog and YouTube this week, so stay tuned!
But hey if you ever decide to buy anything from Archer and Olive, be it their notebooks, pens, or amazing pouches – be sure to use code MASHA10 that will give you 10% off your order.
Now let’s get to planning.
Of course, cover art for the game had to be on my cover page.
I contemplated adding more characters like it is in the game, but then I remembered that it’s kind of a minimalist theme so I stuck with the main one.
As for the font, I found this one on DaFont that is very similar (if not the same) to the font used in the game and I just did my best to copy it, to create a bit more cohesive look for the theme.
My monthly log has a huge space for a to-do list this month.
The busy busy month is coming and I need a lot of space to plan out all the things. Plus I actually forgot to create a content plan as I did in my previous setup so a part of my to-do list will be my content plan.
Habit Tracker / Mood Tracker
Thankfully again, I managed to add those two trackers on one page. Mostly because I don’t track that many habits, and I’m probably going to track even less in October.
It really took a pretty long time to create this mood tracker and doodle 31 characters, but in the end, I’m so very happy with it!
Plus I already use Zebra Mildliners to color the characters, therefore it won’t look out of the place in the mood tracker where I have been using Mildliner colors since March.
The best and most impactful spread for me the entire month.
I always talk a lot about how Gratitude Log can be so impactful and meaningful, but you can simply check my post Gratitude Log For Happiness In Your Life to learn more about it.
Just like last time with my Book Themed Bullet Journal Setup I’m still rocking one page weekly spreads.
This was pretty much all, but I kind of didn’t really want to let go of this theme, so I decided to create one more weekly spread, but this time I used a notepad.
This is a notepad from Archer and Olive, and the black paper is from the black paper notepad from them as well. In November I did a kraft paper theme and it really got me hooked on the contrast of paper colors so as you can see I started experimenting with it a bit.

October Memory Page
Creating memory pages is always my favorite thing to do every month. October has not been an easy month, but I managed to remember tons of good things, as well as add lots of color and happiness even to the sad moments.
Oh and if you want to add this page to your monthly setup check my post How To: Memory Keeping In Your Bullet Journal.
Plan With Me Video
I’ll be honest, I didn’t actually film this one. But! I did something different.
I recently discovered Tik Tok and have been posting there a lot trying to grow my account. It is pretty addictive I must say!
So yeah, for that Plan With Me I decided to film a few Tik Tok videos instead. I would totally appreciate it if you took a look at those and maybe give me a follow – I do my best to create more fun content there all the time.
Among Us Bullet Journal Inspirations
Among Us really hit off not just as a game, but also as a Bullet Journal theme, so I thought I’d add here inspirations from others who decided to add these cuties to your Bullet Journal pages.
So what theme did you choose for October? Let us know in the comments!
