2018 and January Bullet Journal Setup

Since October 2017, I have scoured the internet for Bullet Journal setup pictures and videos, because I think they are SO cool.

So if you don’t know, bullet journaling is a type of journaling that takes you back to the old days of paper calenders. The difference is that you take an empty notebook and draw in your own modules.

If you want to know more about bullet journaling at its core, check out this page made by the founding father of the bullet journaling trend.

I jumped on the band wagon when we entered the new year. The journal I’m using is a dotted A5 journal from Leuchtterm.

2018 Title Page

My first spreads in the journal are a yearly overview where I have each month listed and I can put in any events that I have scheduled for a later date which I haven’t created spreads for yet (since you do the spreads one month at a time).

My January theme is green, and I kept it simple with the design since I am new to bullet journaling and found it all a little scary, to be honest. I also didn’t do too many spreads since I didn’t know what I would need yet, or if I could keep up with doing it.

But that’s the good thing about this – if you love something, you do it again, and if you don’t you leave it out next month.

I have a monthly overview with a grid-type calender and a to do list.

I have a mood and weather tracker with two squares for each day. The moods are color coded, and each day I have colored in a square according to my moods of the day. (Spoiler alert: I changed this for February, but stay tuned for that post)

My media spreads with books I’ve read in January and my ‘song of the day’ page. I’ve written down a song each day that I’m liking recently, and I think it’s going to be so much fun to look back on this list later on and see which songs were all the rage in January 2018.

This picture was taken halfway through the month when I had filled in the pages, whereas the others where taken just after I had created them, which is why the others look sort of empty..

January is almost over, and after a month of bullet journaling, I am really liking it! Maybe more the process of creating the spreads than keeping up with them, but I’ve had my hands on it every day for the entire month.

Maybe I’ll add more spreads like weekly overviews or something like that at a later point, but I don’t really have a use for them at the moment, so I’m just keeping it simple.
