Hello everyone! I’m so happy to see you’re back, or if you’re new, hi I’m melina. Today I’m going to talk about my new bullet journal. I’m a little sad to stop using my old one, because it had so many great memories, and it ended up being such a fun thing to do, but I guess this one will soon have as much emotional importance as the other one.
I’m going to show you the few pages that I created for my new bullet journal. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, leave a comment down below or hit me up on twitter! I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
This bullet journal was kind of nice because I was able to create my bullet journal according to what worked for me and what didn’t. There were certain things that I had on my last bullet journal that I honestly didn’t really use. This time around, it was pretty easy to create my first few spreads.
This year I got a another dotted notebook from Muji, I think it worked really well for me last year, and I wasn’t really down to spend over $20 on one of the Leuchtturm 1917. I accidentally bought a smaller size, which I thought was going to bother me loads, but I ended up growing into it.
Just like last year, my notepad has a little pocket, which I use for holding some of my current tools. For now I have a white pen (for covering up mistakes) and a brown pen. I also have a mini pad of sticky notes!
On the cover of my journal, I have a whole bunch of motivational quotes. I even added a few gold stars! Throughout the year I’ll continue to add some extra things to fill up the blank space.
Once you open the notebook, the first thing you see is my index. As you can see, I don’t have that much filled out yet, but that’ll definitely change as time progresses.
Following the index, I created a social media tracker. I kept it pretty simple, and wrote some motivational words on the bottom. I like this page so much better than the one I created last year!
On these pages I put a calendar of the year and on the right side I made a list of all the important birthdays!
I then made a future log, just in case I need to plan things months ahead of the month that I’m currently on. Last year, I didn’t make one of these, and I know it would of came in handy. I kept it super simple yet functional.
Finally, I created a list of affirmations for the year of 2018. Whenever I’m starting to doubt myself, I realize that I am a beautiful person on the inside and out and deserve nothing but the best. I repeat these to myself out loud, and they make me believe in myself.
So I hope you guys enjoyed reading about my new bullet journal! Maybe it’ll give you guys some ideas! What did you put in your bullet journal? I hope you guys have a wonderful day/night. Sending you all love, strength, and positive vibes!
PS: Sorry for the crazy changes in picture lighting. I’m getting used to editing pictures, since that was something I said I was going to work on this year. I promise you’ll eventually see improvement!
