I’m lost without my daily diary. Completely. I went insane when the new year had already begun and I had no book to write down my appointments. Let alone birthdays and silly holidays. Or quotes.
My planner is important. Really important. During the last three years I’ve always been using the same design in different colours, the slim format ones from paperblanks.
2013 is the first year with a new format. I wanted to try something else, as the usual design was a repeat and I already had one that look that way. Because I actually keep my old calendars.
It’s always a bit hard letting go of the old year’s planner – there are so many quotes and words and book recommendations in there, and birthdays and notes and other things. One quote actually made it to the first page of the new one, together with one all-time favourite and another one I found just today, but more on that another time.
I needed two days just to find the right format, but finally I found something to my liking – yes, paperblanks, again. But smaller. And in an 18 months format, which would be great if the additional six months were for 2014, not 2012. Who buys a calendar in June? Anyway, I’ll be making good use of that extra space, and you should have seen my face when I scribbled down my first notes for this year. Like a junkie who finally got their stuff.
The sticker is something I still had at home, patiently waiting for its day to come. Well, today was the day, and I like it. Also, it fit into the frame rather nicely.
I can’t be the only one so fixated. Are you this attached to your planners, too?
