Sav’vannis’ 2019 BuJo Setup, part 2

Careful, y’all, there’s a LOT of pictures in this one!!

Oki, so… If I were to put all my daily pages in this journal, it wouldn’t last more than 2 months! Hmmm… How about I print them and put them in a separate journal, a binder? I have an old Day Runner that I haven’t used in a long time with my name on it, so I decided it would be perfect! So my Daily pages look a little something like this:

Ok, with that out of the way, it’s time to start working on what order I want stuff in my journal! The easiest idea I’ve found is to take each item and put it on a Post-It so you can re-arrange them as you need until you’re happy before you put everything in… So, I did just that! I pulled a Post-It pad out of my desk and started writing each item from the Yearly, Monthly and Weekly columns and putting them on my desk so I could see them all — well, mostly! With that many items and the size of work space on my desk, I needed to overlap a lot.

So, armed with a pile of Post-it’s containing all the pages I wanted to have in my BuJo…

I broke it down into yearly pages…

And monthly pages…

With my cover page for 2019 starting the Journal.

I’ve got my index pages… I know I’m going to have a lot in my book, so I planned 2 pages for it. Take a look in the bottom corners and you’ll notice I numbered my pages.

And my ‘Year-at-a-Glance’ for those major things that aren’t birthdays or major USA holidays.

I want to do a ‘reflection’ page at the end of the year, to see the changes I’ve made.  Well, to do that, we have to have a starting point.  So, “About me” at the beginning of the year.

My Wheel of the Year.  Shows the Pagan Holidays that I celebrate.

Birthdays and Anniversaries, because I can never remember everyone’s, and the 2019 major holidays.

My goal(s) for 2019. I’m still looking for how exactly I want to write this out other than “lose weight!”

My yearly zodiac. It is actually a zodiac and an astrology bit.

There are just so many things I wanted in my BuJo…

I want to include my birth star chart this year. Something I’ve never done, though always been interested in.

“18 Things Mentally Strong People Do” … A reminder.

So at the beginning of 2019 I am currently 90 pounds over weight. I need to lose as much of that as possible and have several new things I’m going to try

. Until I quite smoking a year ago, I used to walk every day. It is a little over 2 miles around my neighborhood. Time to start this habit again.

“10 Rules to Live By For A Positive Life” and “Satan’s Waterfall”… another positive reminder I thought would pair nicely with my period tracker.

Another positive reminder.

Things I’m thankful for… With my BiPolar and Anxiety, a lot of times I need positive reminders to fight the depression. “The STOP Method” is something I found wandering Pinterest to help with panic/anxiety attacks.

I don’t watch TV, as I’m usually busy working on SOMETHING on the computer. But, I do still like to catch certain shows and listen to them in the background while I’m working.

For those who don’t know, I’m a website designer. What I know, I have taught myself over the years. I’m not great by any means, but I’m getting better. I’ve never had the money to go to a traditional college, so I find ways to learn without having to spend obsene amounts of money. StackSkills is one of those places.

The beginning of my monthly pages!

I spend more nights laying awake for 2+ hours trying to fall asleep than I spend crawling into bed and going right to sleep. I’m trying to figure out what causes most of my problems as I change the way I do a lot of things.

I have a really bad habit of not checking my emails for weeks at a time… Hopefully this will help with that. The TDK Posts are the posts here on this site. I am determined to start working on the site a lot more, but most of the time I have no clue what to post!
