Bullet Journal Set up for 2021

My go-to journal is from Archer&Olive and I have been using their products for 2 years straight!

Whenever someone asks for my favorite journal, I’ll always vouch for this brand. If you’re still undecided, I promise they are worth a try!

Cover Page

Well, I don’t know if you can tell but this cover page is inspired by the infamous toilet paper! (*haha*) By the way, this idea is not mine, I got this from a meme on Facebook and I just find it so hilarious that I decided to have it as my cover page for 2021.

Monthly Log

In 2020, I created a blue winter theme but for this year, I decided to stick with black and grey colors. Part of the reason is that I want my theme to match my journal cover, but more importantly, I just want to keep my setup simple and use monochromatic colors.

Some might call these spreads “future log” but I prefer to call it “monthly log”. I don’t use these spreads to write my future activities and would often use these to write the highlights of the month.

Well, at the end of the day, we can all use our journals in our own way. This is just my way of doing it.

Other Spread Ideas

Word of the Year

For 2021, my word is – AWARENESS.

I chose this after I watched a church service and this word just spoke to my heart. I knew then that this is my word for 2021.

As usual, I always establish my goals at the beginning of the year. This time I created separate spreads for my personal and career goals. Plus I added a toilet-paper-inspired banner as a reminder of my cover page pun. I actually think it’s cute.

Well… you know I’m biased. (*haha*)

Law of Attraction

This is a brand new spread that I added for 2021. This spread is called the law of attraction.

I’m a firm believer in professing things and declaring things that we want to have or happen in our lives. It’s important to attract positive energy and an optimistic mindset, especially during the new year.

Vision Page

The last spread is called the vision page. I treat this spread like a mini version of a vision board. I will be filling this with images and doodles that I want to achieve this year. And since this page is too personal, I prefer to post this blank. But I promise I will fill this with beautiful photos!
