What bothered me most about … Continue reading 15 Reasons You should Have A Planner.
As somebody with Asperger's syndrome, organisation is very important to me; I have to plan my days, know what everyone else is doing.

I am very excited to be getting a new planner: you'll be able too see my reasons as for the switch soon, as I'll be posting about it soon.

For today's post, I wanted to write an ode to something I love; washi tape. WASHI TAPE! (Yes, really. Please excuse how odd this post is.)

Don't get me wrong; my Filofax has been my lifeline for a long time now, in organising every role I have to inhibit-the student, the columnist, the blogger, the wannabe journalist.

As I've done previously, I've shared a few posts, relating to my Filofax, how I plan, and what is inside. As I write this, it's the last day of February, and my planner has already become well and truly stuffed. About a week ago, there was also a Twitter chat, which deviated towards Filofaxes, … Continue reading A look inside my Filofax.
(For this 365 day challenge I'm doing, I wanted to bring a few guest posters along; mainly because it's a collaborative thing to do in the Blgging world, it can impact your views, and I do get sick of my own 'writing voice' at times. So, Lauren from This Stuff Is Golden was nice enough … Continue reading A look into my journal. (Guest post by Lauren at This Stuff Is Golden.)

So, yeah..I bought a new Filofax. This red Metrapool replaced my four-years-on-the-go-planner, which was beginning to give up on me. Still the same size Personal, this is the insides: Okay, maybe not. There's two pen loops, unlike the one before: it's very useful, as my biros do run out very quickly. On opening.. In … Continue reading A Filofax update; I bought it anew!
