My 2018 Bullet Journal

Hello there! It has been a (long) while since I post anything on here. To be honest, I had a rough time last year due to the combination of new office location, new organizational structure and new boss. There was a lot to take in and process. My office moved to another part of the city at the end of October 2016. (My previous blog was posted at the end of September 2016, I guess you can see the correlation!) I also moved in to a new apartment located across town from where I used to live. The new department with a new boss is quite a challenge. I have to work under a lot of pressure and stress, which took a toll on my physical and emotional conditions. Well, that’s another topic for another time…

What I would like to present to you is my 2018 Bullet Journal! You may (or may not) ask what is it? To sum up, “Bullet Journal” is a customizable organization system that combines ‘To-do List’, ‘Planner’, and ‘Diary’ into a single notebook. I used Midori’s MD Notebook A5 10th Anniversary Dot Grid with plastic cover and Kaweco AL Sport Fountain Pen Light Blue with Caramel Brown ink. I put them in a Starbucks pouch and take it anywhere with me in my backpack/handbag.

My basic bullet journal set up are the following:

  1. Goals – what I want to achieve and goals
  2. Keys – consist of Bullets, Signifiers & Meals
  3. 2018 Calendar – a simple whole year calendar
  4. Index – “Contents” page, where I add number of page and topics
  5. Future Log – “Year at a Glance” where I can see holidays and special events occur all year round
  6. Monthly Log – Calendar Page + Task Page (To-Do, Goals, Events, Note & Next Month)
  7. Monthly Habit & Mood Tracker – Personal Care (e.g. Exercise, Vitamins, Coffee), Productive Activities (e.g. Instagram, Reading, No Shopping) and Emotions (e.g. Motivated, Stressed, Sad/Depression)
  8. Weekly/Daily Log – initially includes weekly ‘Review’, which I later changed it to Weekly Tasks and Next Week instead
  9. Monthly Reflect + Review – a place for thoughts on the passed month
  10. Collections – pages for specific topics, for example, “Books I Read”, “Movies I Watched”, “Game I Played” etc.

In order to maintain it, I try to keep the system as simple as I can. I love clean and organized templates. (I am a perfectionist and hate making mistakes.) Before I started the journal, I read Bullet Journal website by Ryder Carroll (the guy who started it all!) and watched a couple of related YouTube videos, then designed my own templates to fix my 28 x 40 grid notebook. The good thing about bullet journal is I can tweak the formats as I go along. I can also use it to jot down notes and sketch something on the fly. Thanks to this journal, I can keep my myself in check and on track. 🙂

My Nametag Bag(s)

I always like to support local businesses in Thailand for a long time but disappointed with some of them. (For example, 42-size-high-heels i bought from the internet that hurt my feet like hell, so the little mermaid i understand you now or sneakers that made me look like Pinocchio!) I decided not to buy shoes or anything else from local shop anymore! But after i discovered a personalised bag shop called, “Nametag”. I changed my mind. I ordered a brown Gym Bag (Dimension: W50 cm.) with my name “Pannita” on it. The bag arrived after about 20 days. Although it’s a bit pricey, i found that the quality is great. I immediately used it for my 4 days trip to Taiwan. I found that it’s made to withstand abuse and quite durable. On the first day, i slept at the airport using this bag as a pillow. For me, it’s perfect for 3-4 days trip and of course, a trip to the gym (which i do not take, LOL)! Anyway, I love it so much that i decided to order another one, Everyday Bag (Dimension: W38 x D15 x H23 cm.) with my nickname “Kor” embroidered in white.

City Backpacker Vol. 2

After got my hands on the famous and popular Kanken backpack, i’m now addicted to backpacks and bought more! I was torn between two brands, Hershel Supply Co. from Canada and Carrot Company’s anello EST. 2005 from Japan. But after I saw my friend using an anello backpack on our 4-days trip to Taipei, i decided to get one. I couldn’t find the right colour from any shop in Thailand, so i ordered it directly from Japan. It’s a bit more expensive, plus shipping and custom, but i’m super happy with the one i got! 😀

I bought the regular size one, Light Grey x Black colours. It looks small but comes with high capacity! The bag is very light and waterproof. There are 2 compartment, a main large one and a small one on the front where i put my small items like train cards, office access card and etc. There is also a zipper at the back so that i can access my stuff without having to open from the top. Very convenience, indeed! 😉

There is a mini size as well but it’s too small for me (and my stuff). LOL Btw, if you are interested in one, i recommended “Onimaru Shop”, “Choose ME” or “Nukoy Shop” , as there are so many fake ones in the market right now. Please, beware!

Purse? Wallet?

After 3 years of using Fossil wallet, i decided to get a new one! So, i decided to get a Houndstooth Small Zip Purse from Fred Perry. The reason why i went with smaller wallet is because i don’t need to carry too many membership cards. Nowadays, we can use phone number to collect points instead.

Although i have to fold the banknotes, I like it a lot because of how small it is. Another downside is that it’s not a real leather but a polyurethane. I guess we will see after a year of use how durable it is.

IMG_1365 IMG_1364

I’ve been using so many design of wallets and purses but still prefer this kind (over a long one women like to use). In conclusion, i like it a lot but the coin compartment is a little too small. However, i always remove big coins and put them in my piggybank everyday! 🙂

City Backpacker

It’s been a while since i last bought a backpack. It was in 2010 (5 years ago). I got a DaKnie laptop backpack when i was studying in Germany. I used it for trips and day out with my old 15″ laptop. The backpack comes with least 5 compartments for laptop, sunglasses and all. It also has hidden compartment on the back where i can put my important stuff like passport and wallet. I love how big but not too bulky it is! Although i switched to a desktop computer, i’m still using it for a trip that longer than 3 days or abroad.

However, this guy is no longer suitable for everyday use (without a laptop). So, it’s time to buy a smaller and lighter backpack and i decided to get a new one from Fjallraven Kanken. After took it on a short trip, this Kanken No.2 (Deep Red) backpack is great and durable. I like the colour and the waterproof fabric but the only disadvantage is it comes with only 2 compartments which is too few for me. I also got the Kanken Pocket (Black) which is a great compliment to the backpack. It’s perfect for mobile phone, wallet and some small things. Anyway, i love them and plan to get more Kanken products like the mini backpack or wallet in the near future. 🙂
