    Habit Tracking

    Hi, Hey, Hello! Remember that bullet journal of mine? Don’t blame you if you don’t. I don’t. It was a project that I tried to make work but then ultimately didn’t because I just didn’t really know what to do with it and couldn’t figure out a way to make it work for me in terms of coding and all that jazz. I also never set up a habit tracker. Which felt like it might have been the most useful part of the whole thing. Yes, I need to get better at making to-do lists for the days and I’ve already started a finance tracker in a separate notebook (seriously…

    Final 2017 Check In

    Hi, Hey, Hello! So 2017 has well and truly come to a close even though it’s only been 3 days since the clock ticked over to midnight signalling a new year, but as such I am due a final check in from my 2017 ‘Intentions’. As I mentioned in Checkpoint 5 this one will just be a quick summary of the year as I went quite in depth in that one. Without further ado, let’s wrap last year up: 1) Take Better Care of My Hair – This has moved along fine. I am getting another hair cut at some point this month because you gotta cut it to get that length. I’m…

    Checkpoint 5

    Hi, Hey, Hello! This check in is late I think… I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I honestly cannot figure out the timings of it. I’m pretty sure it’s late. It should have happened last month but November was otherwise engaged and so it has to open December, which is gonna be festive-ish I guess. I’m not a big Christmas person until it gets to about the 20th and then I’m over it come the 27th. That’s it, you kinda get festive me for about a week, but during that week I go hard. Like, I wear a Christmas jumper every day and always buy a new one to…

    Letters to Autumn 26

    Dear Autumn, You remember that diary that I bought some time over the summer? Yeah, to be honest I almost forgot about it too. I schlepped the thing all the way to bloody Filey with me and it never even left the bag that I put it in. I’ve been doing that a lot with it. Just taking it places and then forgetting about it. I keep having good intentions with it. It’s my great bid to become more organised after all. But then I kind of lose those intentions somewhere along the way. I don’t even really know where it goes, it just goes missing momentarily. And then on…

    …Organised?

    Hi, Hey, Hello! I had a goal for the month. I wrote about it on here and bought a new diary and everything. The goal was simple: get more organised. Somehow this month ran away from me at cheetah’s pace and it’s now pretty the end of the month and I don’t really have anything to show for it. I have opened the diary. I have stared at the pretty pages and read the quotes that are at the top of the page for each week. I have marveled at it and all the possibilities that it holds. I have even written in it. But for the most part I’ve…
