My 2021 Bullet Journal + January Setup

Happy New Year! Now that we are entering the new year, there must be a lot of things that need to be replaced. Let the past gone so we can continue the days by starting fresh. One of them is a bullet journal. Even though my bujo plan kind of hit and miss, but I really love how calm and relax it is to be able to sit down and plan your day. I always watching bullet journal videos on Youtube and adore them so much cause they are so talented and creative with the ideas and arts. I wish I good at drawing or making art cause that is the most fun things to do in the world.

My notebook for this year is from Shopee. I just bought it randomly from the Malaysian seller. It is hard to find dotted notebook especially at the end of the year because it almost sold out everywhere. My notebook for this year is in black. I would normally go for pink but I want to try a new colour this year plus it is the safest colour just in case it gets dirty or stains, so it won't be that obvious. I managed to find this dotted notebook with a leather cover and it has 96 pages. Should be more than enough for me as I have so many pages left on my previous bullet journal. In order to make the plain cover a bit different, I decided to put some stickers on it. It changed the whole look and I love it.

My bullet journal for this year is pretty simple and minimalist. Not many illustrations cause I'm bad at it. Most of the setups are pretty much the same but I did revamp and add a few things as I experiencing with journaling. Just like I mentioned in my last year bullet journal post, there is no right and wrong in bullet journalling, you do you as long as you feel comfortable and enjoying the process.

The first page of this bullet journal is 2021 page. It is very straight forward one, I wrote 2021 by using a brush pen. I thought of writing some quotes but I haven't found any that suits me well. Or else, I will just decorate it by using some stickers or washi tapes.

A Year At A Glance or basically calendar of the year. If last year, I wrote every single month on the page but not this year. I just went for printable 2021 Calendar one. It is very simple and easy.

I also have Future Log where it is just like the calendar but more in details. I will state everyone birthday here including the public holidays or any important days so that I can look or remember when the day comes.

This is a newly added page on my bullet journal this year. A page dedicated to my wishlists of things that I want to get or purchase. It is empty now but it will fill with more photos later. As for now, what I have in mind is GFRIEND Official Lightstick Version 2. I am slowly collecting Gfriend album or merchandise since last year, so let me save more money so that I can check off the list in the future.

The next page is Last Replaced to track every new item that I replaced every once in a while such as a toothbrush. I'm still thinking about the other things, that explains why there are few boxes there on the page. Do you have any ideas what can I add for this page? I think of razor and hair comb but I'm having trouble to draw the doodle of those things. Silly me.

This Movies & TV Shows pages are very useful, you know. It tracks me which movies or tv shows I am currently watching or already watched. If last year, my Movie page is very well decorated but this year, I will just go for a simple one where I just write down the title only. My plan for this year is to watch as many movies I can, might be one every week but we will see how it goes. 

As you can see on my TV Shows page, I already started my new year with two new series to watch which are True Beauty and Find Me in Your Memory. Both are Moon Ga Young dramas. I have no space left for last year so this year I dedicated three pages for this section cause I watch tv show series more, especially k-drama.

Blog Post Ideas is a must-have page on my bullet journal. But knowing me, even though I have the list going on, I still struggling to work on the post. But this year, I decided to make it no matter how busy I am. I have a few blog post ideas from last year that I haven't done yet, so let's try it one by one. 

Blog Plan page is where I plan which posts I want to publish every month. At this point, all I need to do is choosing the suitable blog post ideas to make it happen. I really want to fill them up with more blog post, I will try my very best this year. Just like how I started working on this post!

Blog Tracker is the detailed version of the blog plan. In here, I want to record my views, category and followers for each month until the end of the year. By that time, I can see how was my blogging pattern so that I can change or improve it for next time. Another tracker that I just added in my bullet journal is Weight tracker. As you can see, I have to check my weight twice in a month on every first day and fifteenth day. Let's just hope I lose some of my current weight by the end of the year.

Remember I used to do Monthly Highlights on my blog in the past? Yeah, I bring it back but in my bullet journal. I will write the highlights of each month on this page and see what had happened in my life.

Now, we move to the January Spread. But before that, I have my key which explains every meaning of each key. I will use these keys when I organized my day and it makes it easier to differentiate any task or information. As for my January cover page, I just simply doodle some hanging plants. I'm sorry you have to see those not-cute doddles. I tried though, but I messed up a bit as you can see. Even my lettering is not good. I'm sorry about that, I will try to improve it from time to time.

Brain Dump is similar to my thoughts page where I wrote whatever I have in mind. You know that sometimes you cannot say but you want to let it out, this is the best way of doing it without involving anyone else. Just you. Next is the Blog Post Schedule. I always have this page on my bullet journal but somehow it empty. But I will try my best this year to fill them up.

I also have my playlist and TV shows section where I state my favourite songs and what I watch in the month. I find it easier to trace whenever I did this just in case I missed adding some songs in my Spotify or I want to rewatch any series. Habit tracker is my must-have page too. I always keep track of my habits. This helps me see how my day going and so on.

I also have an Intermittent fasting page. Last year, I started to fasting and this helps me with my weight journey too. Fasting helps me from overeating, so I just eat everything in a moderate way. But these days, I ate mostly every breakfast, lunch, tea-time and dinner. I need to start back my intermittent fasting or else what I did before are totally useless.

Last but not least is my daily spread. I have tried many version of daily spread but this one is my all-time favourite. I didn't waste any space and it looks so clean and organized. This is where I plan and organize my day. This page usually full of my assessment due date and the daily tasks that I plan to do on certain days. 

That's all for my 2021 Bullet Journal. One thing that I missed to do is the product-open-date page where I usually write every new product like skincare that I just open so that I know how long it takes for me to finish and I know the expired date once it opened. But I will add it in my bullet journal anyway.

I hope you enjoy reading this kind of post. I always looking forward to planning my day every night and it feels so good to get cross off most of the task. For those who love to organize your day, a bullet journal is one of the ways to keep track of your plan.
