This year, I wanted to try something new: using a planner. I did day-by-day planning in college, both in a book and in random notes (scattered physically and digitally all over the place). I've also seen good results over the past year using Outlook Calendar at work. Could a personal planner help me get things done outside of work?
I haven't mentioned it before, but I can get a bit fangirly about Paperblanks. They publish journals and writing books in beautiful designs that look just like a hardcover classic (or even prettier!). I have one of their Romantic Sensibility journals, which, once I finally let myself scribble it it, I use for poetry writing. They are a little pricey, but the quality matches the price, and you feel like you've got something really special, something worth handwriting in. (Not a sponsor...I haven't got any of their books for free.)
So, all this to say, I was very excited to get this for Christmas.

And it's nice to have pages in the back, for the poems that pester me when I'm trying to work. ;)
