#One Book July 2014 - Week 2 Update

Two weeks since this crazy challenge started... Two weeks with only one book and one pen... And...


I'm Still Alive!!!

Two weeks already? *look at the calendar at the bottom of the screen* H*ly sh!t it's almost the midle of the month already!! *sigh* Well... I better leave my "work thoughts" aside to make this update already...

So... let me tell you...I F#ck!ng LOVE the Midori Traveler's Notebook, Regular Size... In the name of total honesty here I have to say that I agree with Rory from Rori's Rant on Youtube: I don't think my personal size Filofax will feel the same after a month in this Notebook... And I can tell you with more and more certanty that I don't even know if I want to go back to personal size ring binder *holds her hands up* Wait... wait... don't kill me yet... just listen/read... *take some deep breaths* First of all I still will have my A5 Fusion that I use for more inside stuff that I will show you some day. Second, even though I love the fact that I can change pages, in and out, of a Filofax, there relays my problem... In the Midori I have to deal with the fact that I made a mistake, corrected or draw on top of it, or something... In the Filofax it's: It doesn't look pretty, so I take it out and replace it... *sigh* So you see... the more pages I don't like, the more I replace and that keeps me from going forward in my planning and stuff...

I also realize that I have a SERIOUS problem with writting in the moment, why? I always think that I will have time to put it onto paper but I forget or just say I will do it later... soon... two or three days later I still haven't done it! *big sigh* And the worst of it, is that I do it on my work section of the planner, in the notes to be more exactly... when I'm suppose to write stuff that happend every day so I can refered back to it when my boss ask about them.

The faux bonichi part of the journey has been fun untill now. I have no complains what so ever and I'm actually pretty pleased with myself that I have been writting on it every night before bed or every morning when I get up... even if it is to draw something or add a memory or a quote... I have even started to draw!! wich is a HUGE thing since I don't draw much, at all... even though I like it...

 The only down that I see it's, and I'm sure most of you will agree with me, it's the one pen situation. For work it's great! But for the other parts not so much, because I want color... I can't say I miss it because I haven't use it much, but the fact that I don't have the chance to take some color pencils or something and paint my drawings drives me a little mad... BUT, at the same time I like how neat my pages look in my fauxbonichi.

Withought more works I will live some pictures (sorry for the ones that are at the side but I don't know how to change that) and a video... ENJOY... :D

#One Book July 2014 - Week 1 Update

One week since this crazy challenge started... One week with one book and one pen... And...
I'm still alive!! YEAH!!

To be honest it's been a week that I thought I wasn't going to be able to make a good work with what I got but at the end I can asure you that my 5 inserts that I choose to put in my full size midori (I know it's not a tinny planner but for work I need the space) are plenty for my needs.

I won't lie... I have my moments when I want another midori, maybe a smaller size for this or the other, or even my slim flex Filofax will work for my ideas but then I remember that I have plenty of space in my full size and that I am doing a fucking challenge... So I stop, breath and go on with my life :D

Here I will live some pictures of my pages... Have in your minds that I am also trying to journal ones a day or at least a page a day, a faux hobonichi it's one of my inserts for this July 2014. For private and responsability reasons I won't be showing you my work insert, just because as we all know they may containt stuff that I can't show...

Here comes the pictures...












If you pay close attention, you can notice that I spilt some soda onto my faux bonichi page for yesterday but I did covered it up pretty well, didn't I? LOL

It's not hard if you can control yourself, to use one book... The hard part for me it's the ONE PEN thing, because I have so many coloring pens that I could use and I'm not using them... And I need to remind myself of that a lot of times during the days and nights...

It's a challenge that this pretty ladies got in their heads and it's simple, like the name said: One book, one pen, one month... Crazy? Maybe but it's a very good challenge and for me it's already very interesting, making me use my creativity more than I'm used to *LOL*
