Hey hey, it’s MJ,
So MJ how’s 2020 going? You know that screaming goat that was really popular to put in songs a few years ago to be funny, that’s what 2020 feels like. That goat screaming into the void.
On a lighter note though, I have had more time to actually make my bullet journal pretty creative and I have successfully done all four months so far this year without going insane, though February got the best of me so the latter half of that month didn’t really get tracked like the rest of my year so there’s that.
Like I said in my wrap up last year I did some things different this year including theming all of my months because I am lame like that. I themed May last year Star Wars (this year will be the same) but I did that as a trial run to see if I could do that this entire year so there are touches of the theme on most of the non-calendar pages.
I am not the best artist, I would never claim to be because it would be a lie, a bold faced lie; but I do try really hard, I’m not going to show any of my lead up pages because I will save those for the end of year wrap up. Also notice the title, update #1, I did that last year too with the intention to do it again later in the year. Spoiler alert, I didn’t but we are going to try that again this year and hope for the best.
So what are some of my favorite pages so far?
I have enjoyed doing all of my monthly covers and they have taken me hours this year so I think that is growth?
January’s theme was Studio Ghibli because I have loved it since Kiki’s Delivery Service was on Disney in the last 90’s early 2000’s, whenever it was I watched it every time it was on. Then I took Japanese in high school and into university but we watched a few Studio Ghibli films then so I have seen many of them and loved many of them. (I can watch Howl’s Moving Castle, Kiki’s Delivery Service, My Neighbor Totoro, and Spirited Away over and over again.)
February’s theme was DC because I really like comic books and I figured if I had Marvel I had to have DC.
March was The Labyrinth because it is my favorite movie, I have subjected so many of my friends to watching this movie and they all think it’s weird. I love it though and I figured it needed its own entire month.
April, our current month was Marvel themed, more or less Avenger’s themed because the cinematic universe does focus on that team, licensing and all that.
So that’s it so far for 2020, it’s been crazy so far this year but I made a promise to myself that I would actually bullet journal this year, the whole year and I do not want to break that promise to myself for the third year in a row.
I will see everyone in a few days with a new post, until then, stay safe stay healthy!
