I ordered a new planner the other day. It's kind of a big deal. First of all, it's taken me forever (meaning it's still trying to happen) to get into routine here and seriously plan out my days. I don't know what it is - probably a combination of Douglas being gone so much and just being in a completely new place. So this purchase was a bribe to myself to pull it together. It's feeling pretty good so far. I have two weeks planned out. We'll see.
It's also a big deal because I really like school/office supplies and have trouble actually following through and using something as it should be used. Instead I just like to pile supplies together and look at them. See? This isn't really a big deal at all. I just wanted to mention it because I feel like some of you can sympathize.
It's also a big deal in an exciting way because I saw this very planner about four years ago when I visited Montreal with my dad. It was our last day there, and that morning we took a long walk and ended up at stationary store that was as close to perfection as anything I've seen. I loved everything about the planner immediately. But I couldn't justify spending the money on it as I had no life to plan back then. So I was reunited with this planner over the internet about a week ago, and it felt right this time. So here we are. Hopefully we can do great things together.
Why do I always have at least three pens, usually the exact same kind, lying around whenever I'm working. I don't know, but it's probably the same reason I'd write a semi-emotional post about a planner.
