I used to be a night owl. I would burn the midnight oils with the best of them. Getting older and having a child has totally changed that. I’m ready to fall asleep at 9 p.m. anymore, and if I could I’d sleep till 9 a.m. Unfortunately if I would never get anything done if I did that! I try a get about around 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. to get something started; I usually just end up browsing blogs or suffering through Etsy. I realized that if I want to do anything for myself I have to stop clicking the mouse and do it!
Making lists has always been a key for me to get things done. I can’t make a calendar on the computer or a note on my phone. I have to have a piece of paper and a pen so I can write it down. Whether it was for school, work, or life, I don’t think I’d do anything without a list. So, I made a giant list book. I had several different notebooks dedicated to different things, my daily likes, homework, blog, and everything else. I combined them into one places so I can; hopefully, stay more organized and actually get something done!
While we’re on the topic of lists I’m so excited about a project that is going to be starting in March. 30 days of lists is a way for people, like me, who don’t have a ton of extra time to journal to make a fun and simple daily log of lists. I was so happy to find this gem! I’ve wanted to make an art journal for a while, but I just ever found the time to do it. I think this will be a great way for me to start to find just a few minutes in my day to work on a journal. I haven’t made my 30 days of lists journal yet, but I have a great idea for what I’m going to do! If you’re interested Campfire Chic has some great journals already made up in her Etsy shop, or make your own. I can’t wait to share my lists.
