2019 Bullet Journal Roundup

Hey, hey it’s MJ,

            Welcome to 2020 everyone, I have been rather busy this week so I have been putting off writing this because this was the first week back to school and that meant I was busier than usual. It’s been really busy because yesterday we were under severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings and today it’s sleeting and snowing, it’s bananas. (So I wrote this intro paragraph almost a week ago, almost two weeks back to school now and still just as busy!)

Though I did a post like this last year with my 2018 bullet journal, well I did some things different in 2019 and I am doing even more things different in 2020. I still can’t believe that this is already 2020, it’s bonkers! 

            Year two of bullet journaling is done now and I am on year three and learning new things all the time. I love the evolution of what I can/am doing with a bullet journal rather than a traditional planner or journal.

            So this is really my favorite pages from last year and I am so excited to show some more of my creative pages from last year, granted I did miss November again this year because the latter half of last year was really difficult for me. I am hoping for a much better and more productive 2020. 

Monthly Covers: 

 March: I really let my creativity run with March and I know this was in my Bullet Journal Update post from earlier in the year but it’s still one of my favorite covers for the year. 
May: May was still Star Wars themed and this year I am doing themes more so May will still probably be Star Wars so I am hoping that I get a little bit more creative this year with the cover and the month over all.
June: Again I really took the time on my covers this year and used more than just markers, I actually pulled out my big colored pencil set this year and it really helped me with more depth and creativity.
 July: I think this is my favorite from this year, I spent hours on it and I loved working on it so much. 
August: Was probably one of my other favorites from this year, it was just one of those pages that I would go back and look at throughout the rest of the year because it was something that made me so happy.
September: Loved this one as well, I spent so much time on my covers last year and I am already spending so much on my covers this year as well so seeing the progression of my cover pages throughout the last two years is crazy.
December: What can I say, I didn’t do October or November for covers or November at all so I had to end the year with a good one, I think this one was pretty good. 

Mood Trackers:

January: I love dreamcatchers and I still want to make one or buy one for my apartment because there are some really beautiful ones out there so recreating something that I enjoy in my bullet journal last year was really cool. 

February: A jar of hearts, I really liked this one as well but I was sick most of February so it was a little more subdued than January but I still really enjoyed it.
April: This was another page in my Bullet Journal Update from earlier in the year but again like I said Edison bulbs are amazing and I have always loved the idea of them so being able to recreate them in my bullet journal was a lot of fun.
May: I liked the crystals, I would make them bigger if I ever did this again, I don’t know if it fit into the Star Wars theme but I tried.
 June: It’s a doughnut! I love it!
August: I see enough paper planes being in a school setting but having them in my bullet journal was much less aggravating than having to deal with them in real life.

Monthly Calendars: 

May: Return of the angry porg! I am still really upset that the porgs didn’t make much of an appearance in Rise of Skywalker, they were the best.
October: I didn’t do the cover for October but the calendar was cute.
December: Merry Christmas Charlie Brown is one of my favorite Christmas specials so being able to put Snoopy in my bullet journal was great.

Random Pages: 

 Books Read Page: I love having a bookcase in my bullet journal to chronical all of the books I have read in any given year. Last year my goal was 35, I actually read 32 and 12 of those were in December. 
Movies to see: I didn’t see all the movies that I wanted to but that’s okay, I loved the ones I did see which was two of the seven that I wanted to. 

            My 2019 Bullet Journal was different from 2018 and even 2020 has been different than 2019. Bullet Journaling is such a freeing concept because you can do what you want with your pages and your inspiration throughout the year and even throughout a given month. Last year when I posted this I was going to be working on February and that is one of my plans for this weekend (it will be last weekend by the time this comes out) but I am so excited to see where my bullet journal takes me this year! 

            I hope that everyone has a good week and I will be back later in the week with another post!

Bye,

                        -MJ
