What comes to mind when someone says they use a planner or that they plan to buy one?
Many people think that a planner is just a notebook with grids and, well, you lay out your plans for the week/month. Add some doodles if you want and you're done! I didn't really give it much thought either. I started using planners when I was in high school but never took them seriously until college. I just kept a small pocket planner to balance studies, parties, and movie nights. Oh yeah, it was though lol
As an adult, I've always had yearly planners. It didn't mean I was updating them religiously. Back in the Philippines, I made sure I had the annual Starbucks planner - which apparently they do not offer here in the US. Back home (and I don't know if they still do it now), you buy so much drinks and have your punch card filled up and voila! Starbucks Limited Edition Planner.
It's a whole new world!
I got a 2020 planner as a gift last Christmas and I've loved it so far. I was able to maintain it, but nothing fancy. Last week, I was buying some fabric in Joann's but of course, your store visit is not complete until you go to the clearance aisle. I was initially looking for stickers then I stumbled upon this 18th month planner. Looks neat. Not my style but hey it's on sale for $11 so maybe I'll go ahead and take it.
The Happy Planner.
That discovery led me to the paper crafts aisle and of course, I found the rest of the Happy Planners not on clearance but was on sale. Well, I found one that represents ME! I'm no longer that "girlfriends date night" kind of gal, which is what the clearance item was - things have changed and I'm more of let's work, travel, eat, and walk my dog with my husband person now. Amid all that - I'm a child at heart, not some sassy chic (although I know I can be).
It's gonna be hot, the weather app said.
There's 50% chance of rain for 0.02 inches, the weather app said.
That's not a lot, the weather app said.
Watch my short petty fiasco and some race clips at Road America for the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship.
Who would've thought that this party girl would be planting veggies and battling aphids five years later after her drinking and traveling spree?
Yeah, I didn't think so!
I never really thought that watering plants and checking my garden during my breaks would be something I would look forward to. Growing a garden can be quite challenging but it can be very rewarding. There's a lot to learn in a span of months and even years, but this is something I want to keep doing because it actually feels good to harvest something you personally grew.
I started gardening a few years ago. I focused in planting flowers on the front garden and this year, I added edging and more flowers. I also learned which flowers to avoid and add. One step up that I started this year was to plant edible goodies!
Alright, I'm doing my best to keep everything updated and so far - I'm on track!!
I'm gonna have more videos to come and more posts, of course!
I've spent a good chunk looking at puppies so my life is fulfilled!
But of course, I think time management is crucial and I actually am having fun creating content! That being said, I am also interested to know - what content would you like to see!? I would love it if you would let me know :) Please take the survey by clicking the button below.
Way before photography, one of the first things that I always loved to do is to draw. Unfortunately, my fingers are not the best in drawing unless it's manga/anime. Unlike my brother, I seem to not be so great at that. Surprisingly, I think I have a better skill in painting. I've been recently obsessed with the floral elements I get from DesignBundles so I thought, why not make my own?
I find water color painting to be a lot of fun and a great way to de-stress. Now that I'm working from home full time (and how I wish it stays that way forever), I can just start painting something if I was in the mood. I feel like working from home is more healthy and much productive for me.
Hey, it's me!
I've always loved to write. Not saying I'm good at it, but hey this is the story of my life!
