February is here!
You know what that means – a brand new spread in my bullet journal that I can’t wait to share with everyone!
Now, take note: don’t be fooled by all of the heart doodles; I’m not the biggest fan of Valentine’s Day, but.. if the shoe fits, lace ‘er up, right? It’s fitting for the month.
Well, let’s dive right in, shall we? Here’s my February bullet journal set-up.
FEBRUARY MONTHLY SPREAD
I made a smaller calendar than I did for January, simply because I didn’t find myself using the bigger calendar much, and it took up more space than I wanted it to. Beside it, I designed a new key that’s a bit simpler than the one I was using. This one is truer to the original bullet journal system, and I found that the other one I made was full of little symbols that I barely used anyway, so I simplified!
Underneath the calendar and the key, I wrote some personal goals, as well as some blog goals for the month. I’ve noticed that my numbers are higher lately (which is why I crossed out my first goal and then added a new one! haha), which I’m super happy about! Not that the numbers matter, but I just like knowing that people are reading what I’m writing, and are (hopefully) enjoying it.
On the right page is just a quick glance at the month – all of my important dates are filled in, and I’ll be filling it in as I go.
The next two pages are new to my bullet journal.
I made a mini ‘bulletin board’ with little tasks and reminders for the month. I have a “Waiting For” list for any online orders I make (and believe me, I make a lot), a little note for my monthly expenses that I can’t really not pay, and also a little reminder list to keep me productive. And before we get all worked up about it – I washed my sheets yesterday, and February is a short month. Relax, people.
I’ve also added a habit tracker. I’ve been trying really hard to get used to going to bed early and waking up earlier, and trying to incorporate some yoga into my life. 2016 is just about trying to become a better me. Trying to read before bed instead of browsing Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Pinterest is also another personal challenge I’ve given myself.
As you can see, I’ve already posted on all of the social media today, so at least that’s something productive!
I changed up the header in my dailies! Not because I didn’t like the other one, I just wanted something different for the month. Honestly, I think that’ll be something I do every month – new month, new start, am I right?
I already went ahead and started planning for my week with what I knew was going on – classes, work schedule, auditions.. it doesn’t look too busy yet, but it will be. I can just feel that this month is going to be a busy one.
And let’s not forget about Superbowl 50! Who do you think will take it, Broncos or Panthers?
I’ve purchased a few rolls of washi tape, too, and on the one page I’ve started a washi tape sample page! I’m kind of in love with the snake skin looking one. I’m excited for the rest of my new ordered washi to come in the mail.
That’s basically it for now, but that’s only because February only just began! I’m sure if I give it a few more days I’ll think of new things I’ll want to add to my bullet journal.
What are some new things you’ve added to your bullet journal? Have you transferred anything over from last month? What works for you? What doesn’t work for you?
Leave me a comment and let me know! :)
