Snowy Days

January 22nd, 2016 | Tagged: ,

Hi all! We had 3 inches of snow last week *snow More should be coming tomorrow…it’s going to be a huge storm south of us but right now it looks like we’ll only get a few inches. The sky already looks like snow though!

I’ve been interviewing and stuff for a new job this week. I’m worn out! Personally I find job hunting more stressful than actually working…haha *ase1

I hope you’re all staying warm! <3

Hobonichi

January 20th, 2016

My newest obsession is Hobonichi. I saw it on Tumblr and was immediately curious. I love stationery and planners in particular (I live and die by my planner). I’ve jumped around through a couple of different brands and last year I used the Muji planner which I really liked. It’s both weekly/monthly with one page being a layout for the week on one side and graph paper for whatever you want on the other side. I had been trying to buy their planner when I went to New York last month and on their online store, but neither was available (their site was down for like a month).

In the meanwhile, I found Hobonichi. One of the things that makes Hobonichi unique is that it has one page per day. So it is a large planner, but you have lots of room too doodle or graph things. Each day has a general guide of how you can use the page, like hours running down the left margin. But really, you can do whatever you want.

I love looking at examples online. Some of the owners get really creative with theirs, blending the to-do list with art and memories.

I wouldn’t call it a resolution (because then I would feel pressure to keep doing it), but I’ve been trying to write down in my current planner (still using my 2015 Muji one) what I’ve been doing each day, goals, and the weather. I’m trying to get a better grasp of how I spend my time and to have something concrete to look back on. I hope this makes it harder for all my days to blend together in one big mess, and for me to have a better sense of passing time. I also want to try to be more creative in the coming year.

I also really like the extra pages at the end for addresses, time tables, graphs, addresses, etc. I ended up ordering one for myself a few days ago and it should be coming in at the end of the month. Hopefully I can review it then. :notes:
