I kind of can’t believe it, but I recently (as in, three months ago and I am just now posting it) started my seventh bullet journal. I’ve been bullet journaling for a little over four years, so I like to think my skills have improved a bit, and today I’ll be taking you all on a little tour of the spreads I set up to start off my new notebook!

First up is my cover page, which has a bit of a collage element going on. (And I am just now realizing I forgot to photograph. Sorry about that! I’ll try and get a picture sometime soon if I can catch some sunlight in my room.)
Then, of course, is my future log. I prefer a vertical layout, and I had some fun with the font for the month titles.
For the last page of my future log (I like to have planning space for far in advance), I split the page into two boxes, one for the later months of 2021 and one for 2022.
Next, I drew up a base for my 2020 in Polaroids spread, which I’ve done for one or two years now and was inspired by AmandaRachLee, one of my favorite bullet journal creators. Looking forward to taping in a photo from each month at the end of the year!
This is a goals page which I hadn’t actually filled out yet when I took this photo (whoops). I had a lot of fun with this font!
This is a little spread I made to keep track of miscellaneous projects I want to accomplish, etc.
These two lists are (1) non-urgent tasks, and (2) bullet journal monthly theme ideas.
Next up is a classic bullet journal spread for readers, the to-be-read shelf. This time, I decided to incorporate a color code based on whether the book is one I own physically, a book on my Kindle, or a book owned by a family member.
Here’s where I’ve been keeping track of books I’ve read. (I copied over the books I read earlier in 2020 as well.)
And here’s a list of movies and shows I want to watch, organized by which streaming service they’re on:
This is a new spread I came up with to track in-progress tv shows—each time I finish a season, I color in the bubble with the corresponding number.
The next set of pages includes (1) a movie log, and (2) my passwords (which I have of course blurred out).
Finally, I dedicated this list to things I want to buy:
- Leuchtturm1917 notebook (a5 size, dot grid, powder color) | Amazon
- Faber-Castell Pitt artist pens | Amazon
- Tombow Dual Brush Pens | Amazon
- Washi tape (grid pattern) | Amazon
- Tombow Fudenosuke brush pen | Amazon
- Pilot Metropolitan fountain pen | Amazon
- Staedtler Triplus Fineliners | Amazon
And that’s all for my first few spreads in my new journal! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed taking a look at these, and I hope you’re all having a good month so far. 💫
