Hey y’all. I’m back with another post. This one’s a big one. I finally started setting up my bullet journal for 2020! OMG. As scary as it is to start a new year, setting up a new bullet journal makes it much more exciting. I’ve said before in previous bujo posts that it’s always super relaxing to take the time to doodle and create new spreads. On top of the relaxation it brings, it helps set my mind into a more confident place to take on a new week, or in this case, a new year.
Below I’ve shared my final bujo set up in pictures for you to check out. I’m currently wrapping up my January spreads as well and *shocker* I totally didn’t film it for Youtube like I told myself I would. I’ll most definitely post about it on instagram, so follow me there for updates. But without further ado, here’s my official bullet journal spread for the new year (and decade).
Key and Inside Cover Page:
While I have my own personal key system on lock, I still always like to physically draw out my key every year, as a reminder to myself or as a guide in case anyone is, for some reason, looking at my Bujo for scheduling conflicts or what not. The quote is a Kurt Vonnegut quote that Kristee Vetter usually has in and around her apartment in various decorations; what can I say, it inspired me.
The Future Log:
I always like to put mini calendars in there too, so I can get a visual of what day of the week each month starts and ends on. I’m a visual learner and visual person, so this definitely helps me with that.
2020 Goals and Resolutions:
In the past, I’ve kept my goals section in the front of my bullet journal to one page and would keep my resolutions super general. But, I realize that it’s not exactly a conducive or productive way to get on and stay on track. I realize that today’s the 28th of December so I don’t have much time to figure it out, but that’s the beauty of bullet journaling, I could let every single detail of it stress me out, or I can make it fun.
My Annual Film Nerd Spread: The Most Anticipated Movies List
For this spread, which is essentially the same spread I’ve done in years past, is always satisfying to me. As I see a movie I have on this list, which is in the shape of various strips of film reel, I color the corresponding box off. It’s such a minor way to track which films I’ve seen, but it adds an extra layer of excitement and satisfaction to the process.
My Memories in a Frame:
Listen, I’m a Cancer and I’m sentimental AF, so this is the perfect spread for anyone else out there like me!
And that’s all folks, that’s my official set up for next year’s Bullet Journal. Holy Cow. This time of year is when I start to get all reflective on the year that’s been before getting excited at the year to come. Setting up my bullet journal is a great way for me to bridge that gap and keep myself looking ahead. Before I get all sentimental (or overly-anxious) on you, I’m going to sign off here. Because after all, goals are dreams with a deadline.
Let’s all go out there and get this bread in 2020. This most definitely will be my last post for this year/decade, so I’ll see you in the New Year! Go hug a family member, or a friend, and tell ’em how much you love them and like a wise woman once said, “be kind to one another.” (Yes, I just quoted Ellen Degeneres)
Happy planning, happy goal-getting, and Happy New Year!
