February 2020 Self Love and Care Bullet Journal Set Up

February is a great month to reflect on giving yourself, love. For that reason, I decided to focus my month on developing a self-care routine and themed my bullet journal accordingly. I will be creating my usual functional planning spreads filled with self-care and valentine’s doodles. I also will be adding some extra spreads dedicated to self-care/ love and friendship because I also like to make little gifts for my friends. Don’t worry, I will talk about Valentine’s Day gift ideas in a future post before the fourteenth.

January Life Plan With Me

As a way to keep myself accountable for all of my goals for the new year as well as deadlines for assignments and to-do’s, I decided to form a sort of monthly planning system that I hope will work for this new year. During this planning session, I will be keeping in mind all of my goals and any important days I need to set out for this specific month. As the month passes, I will be reviewing this planning method to take out the things that I didn’t use and adding the things that I believe I need for the coming month. If you want to see more of this sort of planning, make sure to comment it down below. I will be doing most of this planning in my 2020 bullet journal.

January 2020 Bullet Journal Set-Up

We are finally heading into the January 2020 Bullet Journal Plan With Me. I am so excited about this month's theme! I chose the Naruto anime series for this month's theme because this series has so many life lessons built in it that are taught through these kids and beings that have gone through so much stuff and keep going no matter whatever life throws at them. They all went from "zero to hero" several times in the series and the world and the hearts of the characters are so well developed that you can only love them. I find that there’s no better way to start this new decade aside from being reminded to keep going and working hard to get to your dreams because they indeed can come true. If you haven’t watched the series I recommend you check it out, it is definitely worth watching.

2020 Bullet Journal Set-Up

In this blog post, I will finally show you my 2020 bullet journal setup. I have been planning this bullet journal setup for about six months thinking of what journal I wanted to use, or in this case, how I was going to build my bullet journal and the spreads that were going to welcome this new decade and amazing year that is going to be 2020. In the picture above, you will be able to see the journal I handmade. It is a hardcover 304 page half-letter sized journal. I did a kettle-stitch to sew signatures (pages) that I learned how to do in a tutorial by Sea Lemon on YouTube which I will make sure to link. It is a great tutorial and easy to follow. Keep in mind, I didn’t follow it to the point on the following videos teaching how to make a hardcover style journal and did some things differently because I had to replace some of the supplies she used because I didn't have them at hand, so I would recommend you, either way, check it out if you are interested in creating your own journals. Also, if you are interested in me to make a whole blog post on how I created mine, comment down below so that I can add it to my future content calendar.

How I Started Bullet Journaling and My Recommendations

The bullet journal is one of the greatest planning systems that I have used since the moment I started using planners. I love how customizable the system is and how everyone can make it their own in very simple ways. There are many ways in which you can make use of a bullet journal whether you want to use it the way it was created or add and modify things if you see fit.
