Bullet Journaling: Setting Up my new Journal

Planners and I: a love story
I have always loved being organized. It gives me a sense of security. So to be as organized as possible I have kept a shit load of calendars in my life. It all started when I was six, with a "homework-book"(a small book that you are required to keep in school). But not only did I kept track of my homework, I also wrote down what I wanted to do that day, when Pokémon came on TV that day or when my grandparents would be in town. From that on, year for year I looked forward to buying a new planner at the beginning of the year. The older I got, the more intricate the planing got, I started to decorate my weeks and develop a color code for my homework. Then I discovered the Filofax community on YouTube. I was blown away by all those people having the same hobby as me. For my 18th birthday I got my first Filofax. It was bright orange and I loved it.

NaNoWriMo-Camp Experience: The second time around

July was a busy month for me. Due to multiple factors. I had exams, traveled and first and foremost: I participated in the NaNoWriMo-Camp again! If you are unfamiliar with the project: Here is a post explaining everything about it.

I participated first in April of this year. My goal then was to write for 30 minutes each day. I was not able to fulfill said goal, but still felt like the project was a success for me. This time around things were very different.

July Wrap-Up

 And just like that, another month is over in a blink of an eye. This past month has been very eventful for me. I participated in the NaNoWriMo-Camp, went on a lot of weekend trips, completed my fourth semester at university and currently I am writing this form a bench in Sweden. In between all of that I also managed to read a few books. Not as many as I'd liked to, but in the end thats not that important. And now, without further ado: My July Wrap-Up.

A month without headphones

On June 22 my headphones broke. My first immediate thought was: Where and when can I buy new ones? That though scared me. But the emotional state I was in scared me even more.   Headphones breaking should be no more that a mild inconvenience, but to me it felt like I had lost something very important. I was out running errands that day, the thought of running around the city all day without my headphones made me incredibly anxious. This anxious feeling was the reason why I decided not to buy new ones. 
The decision was ruled by a few determining factors:

Let's draw a map

A few weeks ago, I started preparing for the NaNoWriMo-Camp. As part of this preparation I drew a map to visualize the world the story takes place in.

Then I discovered the Instagram Account of Deven Rue. And got seriously inspired. So I decided to redraw the map and make it a bit more detailed.
