2016 Monthly Daily Refill.
Hello Traveler’s Notebook & stationary lovers on the cyberspace! This is my first blog post of monthly life roundup, I decided to only do a monthly layout becuase my weekly refill is kinda messy with basically just my everyday food journaling and random notes/plans all that jazz you know, the trivial stuff, nothing too fancy to show off. I’m more on the practical side and btw it just dosen’t work for me to decorate my planner artistically, but I never get tired of enjoying other poeple’s inspiring journals:) Enough said, let’s take a peak inside mine!
+ Travelled to Japan (Osaka, Kyoto, Nara) for 6 days. You can see how I documented the trip in Japan_Spring Travel 2016 on Traveler’s Notebook & My Traveler’s Notebook set-up for Japan Trip
+ A couple of trips to hopstibal for my lung check up:( The flu I got during CNY really wore me down!
+ Little sis went to S. Korea for 5 days and I got to have the whole room to myself (That’s even worth mentioning?!)
+ I shared my Japan Travel Journaling on PTT and my blog visit continues to surprise me, shameless self-promotion is REAL!
Phew, so March was pretty ordinary, except my highlight- Japan Travel ( How many times do I talk about Japan/Travel in this post ?! Sorry guys but I really love it there and can’t wait to go back…… end of year)
Okay, I want to talk a little bit about setting up a system when you journal, like the pen (colors), marks, tools, the layout used, it can really help make your journal systemized and organized and easier to look back to, you want to have a quick and clear idea of how the month is outlined with just one glance and you want to be able to keep up the system along the way, easy breezy. Before I started this 2016 Monthly Diary Refill I gave it a thought and decided to use yellow crayon to draw a continuous line when it comes to holiday/travel plan, easily spotted! For any kinds of dates with boyf, friends or appointments in general I use black pen only. I will use a second colour like here I use purple to write down anything more memorable or spontaneouss along the month. For reds I’m using to document my period and headache/pill-taking status. That’s about it, pretty simple! As you can see there’s nothing decorative at the moment, but I don’t rule out the possibility of so if I ever get inspired enough or tired of my minimalist system right now.
What springy things have you guys done and what’s coming ahead? Have you ever been to Japan? Is there a journaling rule you go by to systemize your planner? Any thoughts on today’s blogpost, please feel free to let me know, I’d love to communicate with this nerdy stationary internet famaily:P xxx
