The last few days of 2014 are upon us. The vow to do better in 2015 is on many lips. Resolutions are being drafted, and plans to keep up with them shaping up. And I am pretty sure a few of you have vowed to eat healthier after a month of decadence.
I know the thought crossed my mind, it does every year.
I'm not much for resolutions myself. I don't really keep up with them. But, I like the idea of starting with a brand new calendar, and a brand new planner. There is something really amazing about holding a diary that is yet to be filled. Filled with appointments, to do lists, events, parties and goals. And the feeling that everything is possible because it hasn't been written yet.
In truth, I rely on a calendar on my kitchen door to write all these important date, school ones in particular. And if you haven't done so already, go check and download the free printable calendar I created for you guys this year.
But, spending more and more time on my blog, the use of a day planner arose again, stronger than ever. For these, I am fairly old fashioned, I need them bound, and compact enough. It has to be a one page a day one, because I inevitably end up jotting down a lot more than a few lines. And, it needs to feel pretty enough (don't judge).
I tried these new age digital calendar, planners and what not in the past. And it was an epic fail every time. I simply can't stay focused and on task without weight and volume, preferably of paper in my hands. Appointments, goals and tasks have less weight, less power and less authority on me through a smart phone, computer or tablet. In fact, neither do ideas.
I can't make constructive drafts in the digital dimension. Drafts have to be on paper, where I can strike paragraphs, doodle, scribble and ramble and then scrunch the page away to throw in frustration when it doesn't go my way.
I am 2015 ready, equipped with a printable calendar (well already printed), a day planner, and I even put my Christmas decoration away already.
This post will be the last one of the year, I plan to spend the last few hours relaxing. So, I am wishing you all a Happy New Year.
See you in 2015...
