February 2017 Bullet Journal Setup


Now that it's the beginning of the February, that means that it's time for the monthly bullet journal setup! This is my second setup of the year, and most things have stayed the same from January's setup, but there have been a few notable changes. Anyway, read on for my February bujo setup!

Metallic silver does not photograph well (and so doesn't the glittery blue, which is the only blue I used in this spread - I don't know why, but for reason it looks like I used different shades of blue) // OurJourneyinJournals.blogspot.com

Due to some circumstances discussed in January's setup (link in above paragraph), I didn't use my bujo for about a week and a half. In that time period, I used a random journal that I have as a temporary bullet journal until I could transition back into my real one, and those days are marked with an X. If that's something you'd want a full post about, let me know by leaving a comment!

You can't really see the glitter or the fluorescent pink that I used on the letters :( I also just realized that I forgot to fill in one box in the last row lol // OurJourneyinJournals.blogspot.com

This is my monthly spread for February. I went with a pink-ish color scheme in honor of Valentine's Day (even though I think it's a completely overrated holiday, and I'm always single during it lol). The darker color is actually just a normal Crayola Super Tip marker, though I used the Kuretake Zig Wink of Stella clear brush pen to make it all sparkly, which you can't really see in the pictuers :(, and I used a Sakura Moonlight Gelly Roll to accentuate the downstrokes (though you can't see it either). I got the former really recently, but I wholly recommend it because it's just such an amazing thing to use.

If you're wondering, the "mis" stands for "miscellaneous," which holds random tasks and notes throughout the month, and "goa" stands for "goals," which is a space to write down big, general objectives that I want to keep in mind throughout the entire month.

The two small headers say "Goals" and "Actual" - again, metallic and glittery gel pens are difficult to photograph // OurJourneyinJournals.blogspot.com

Last month, I implemented goals into my habit tracker layout. I hoped that it would help me be more accountable with each individual habit since I've kind of been failing them in the last couple of months. As you can see, I fell short of my goal for almost every item. I also did worse with many of January's habits compared to December's, so I'm really disappointed with that.

Yes, February only has 28 days // OurJourneyinJournals.blogspot.com

This is February's tracker, and I also set new goals for each habit. I hope I do better this month! To help with that, I think I'm going to try to check in each week and see how I'm doing. I also forgot that February only has 28 days . . .

This is okay, but I feel like it could've been better // OurJourneyinJournals.blogspot.com

I promise, this pictures does not capture how pretty this is in real life // OurJourneyinJournals.blogspot.com

I got the memories spreads in my bullet journal for December and January done, so now I'm all caught up! I'm actually really quite proud with how January's turned out.

You can see the glitter in this picture, though you still can't really see the Moonlight // OurJourneyinJournals.blogspot.com

This is the blank monthly memories layout for February. I messed up the border a lot . . .

In January, I'm finally getting out of the dailies slump that I'd been in for the past 2 months-ish. In November and December, I skipped SO many days of dailies, but thanks to the forgiving nature of the bullet journal system, it doesn't really matter. I was pretty good with doing daily spreads in January, but since I used a temporary bujo for a big part of the month, I still didn't use that many pages. I'm now actually a little concerned that I might run out of space in the index before I run out of pages in ths bullet journal. February is my 7th month in this notebook, so I also need to set up a new future log ASAP.

That is it for my February bullet journal setup! Overall, it's mostly the same as I've been setting up my bujo for the past couple of months.

What was February's setup like in your bujo? Tell me in a comment down below!
