Hey everyone! I’m here today…with another Bullet Journal post! I really really love making BuJo posts because taking pictures of BuJos are so cute!
In this post, I’m going to be sharing my December spreads as well as my 17 before 2017 goals (yes, I know I’m rather late on the 17 Before 2017 thing, but better late than never, right?!)
I don’t usually have very many spreads I do for a monthly overview or whatever, because I usually put all the stuff on daily spreads. However, I only have 5 pages left in my current BuJo, and I want to save my new one until 2017, so I’m having to make do with these 4 pages. I’m also likely going to have to go back and reutilize some of the pages with more blank space again as daily spreads.
I am anticipating, though, that I won’t have to use as many daily spread pages this month because of the holidays (and less homework!!) so I’m not *too* nervous about there being wayyyy too little pages.
But anyways…on to the pictures!
First up is my monthly spread. Unlike many bullet journalers, I don’t use my monthly spread very much, because, as I’ve said before, I tend to use the daily spreads more extensively.
So on my December spread, I have a calendar (obviously), my monthly goals, highlights of the month, and then a to-read list. I still have like 60 books I yet have to read this year (D:), so that’s why I have an entire column for that.
Next for my December spreads is my present planning spread.
This one is fairly straightforward: a column of people I have to give presents to, and then a column of what I have, a column of whether I’ll purchase or make their presents, and then a column for what I need to purchase in order to complete the present. Simple!
Next up are my New Years Resolutions. I didn’t start BuJoing until the start of the school year, so I don’t have a spread for my 2016 NYR’s, so I made one now, so that I can check to see how many I’ve done so far. (Hint: not many)
Finally, my 17 Before 2017 spread!
If you don’t know what 17 before 2017 is, it’s basically a thing where you set a list of 17 goals you want to complete before 2017! There have been 16 before 2016, 15 before 2015, stuff like that. I’m not sure who started this, but here is Kara (Boho Berry)’s post about her 17 before 2017 stuff.
Because I share all my goals on my blog, and I haven’t done my 17 before 2017 ones yet, here are my goals!
- Take, edit, and post all pictures of the day
- Meet my reading goal
- Finish Bible reading, journaling, and sermons
- Not miss a blogpost (go back and fill in posts that I haven’t finished)
- Catch up on my family blog
- Do a cool piece of art (I’m not an artist, so this is kinda big)
- Finish my gifts
- Take the SAT and ACT
- Redecorate my room
- Play Christmas music on my instrument
- Get 100 posts on Instagram (currently at 88)
- Redo the categories/tags on my blog (these are a mess, man)
- Hand letter a Christmas song (this does not count as the cool piece of art)
- Set up new Bullet Journal (the one for 2017)
- Spend times with friends
- Finish rocks and minerals binder (couldn’t be more excited)
- Finish getting ready for 2017!
So there you have it: my December spreads and my 17 before 2017 goals!
Do you have a bullet journal? Do you have a 17 before 2017 goal list? Are you excited for Christmas (
because if you aren’t, I’ll come and find you and tickle you until you are) 😄
