Bullet Journal: The Ressurection

Can you believe that it’s Sunday night and the weekend is already over…again? No me neither, time seems to disappear so fast at the weekend! This weekend has highlighted my poor time management, so this weekend I have decided to start planning ahead. For someone who is inherently more laid back and has more of a ‘it’ll all work out alright in the end’ attitude, this is a fairly big step and a major decision. How am I going to do this you ask? Well, with a calendar and a bullet journal resurrection of course! Continue reading

Adulting: Routine

Adulting….isn’t it hard work, eh? For those of you who know me, you’ll probably know that I am fairly laid back. For those of you who don’t know me, I try my best to go with the flow, and often live in the midst of organised chaos that works for me! I have enjoyed the freedom, and the time that working different shifts has allowed me, I enjoy the long weekends it gives me off to enjoy myself, and I like the early finishes, and the lie-ins it sometimes affords me. However, I absolutely love routine, which contradicts this completely.

But the one thing my life is currently missing is routine. I used to have a real routine nailed down to the second. I try not to waste time in the mornings, and I used to have an almost military timed routine in place. You’re probably thinking this goes against all that I have just said about being chilled out, but the routine I build lets me be like that. I don’t like faffing so I know how long every task takes me, and know how long I can sleep in for, and at the end of the day, it gives me more time to be relaxed. I feel like a lack of routine is starting to really wear me down.

Lift-Off

So, it has finally arrived. Launch is a-go. At 14:45 tomorrow, well today, depending on what time I actually press publish, I will be off on my travels. I am so excited!!! I can’t believe it is finally here. I’ve been planning this trip for over 18 months, I won’t even be gone that long.

I am sorry I haven’t blogged in a while. I didn’t really know what to say, and, well, I have been quite busy with everything to go on this trip, I have finally re-packed, and with a couple of compromises and sacrifices, got it all to fit in, I wasn’t sure it would happen earlier today but it did. Ish. I need to put the last few things into my hand-luggage, and I can leave.
