Six months gone by
I can’t believe it, half a year has gone by without me even looking at this blog. Why? Probably a combination of thesis and job-searching stress, me being unsure what to write and just plain forgetting about it. Now I will have to have a good think on what to do about this, and how to keep things going along here.
So what did get done in the meantime? My thesis is just about a month away from being sent to the thesis reading committee, which has been assembled as well. Then I just need to think about designing a cover and find a good printer to make me some books. I have no idea about designing book covers, not even what program to use for it, so any ideas on this are very welcome!
I did reorganise my book case and all papers, partly redecorated the living room, been to London for a long weekend, been to two weddings and one funeral, got myself an ipad, tried out a million (rough estimate) new recipes and much more.
Also, I have found a few new stationery loves:
- russell and hazel, and especially their post-it notes. Their daily adhesive notes are the perfect companion for a weekly filofax diary. And I am really tempted by their binders too, but they are so expensive and not compatible with the standard A4/A5 systems.
- Speaking of perfect filofax companions, my sister gave me a purple swarovski pen that fits in a filofax loop and looks great with my purple finchley. Love!
- I am loving my yellow square notebook by bookbinders design so much, that I dare not use it. But I want to journal in it! Any advice on how to break this spell? Until then, it looks great on my desk.
- And last but not least, the Leuchtturn1917 notebooks and pen loops. I am using a purple pocket notebook in my purse now, and a cornflower dotted A5 one for my research. Highly recommend them.
This will do as an update for now, and I will try my best to post more regularly from now on. I may even start scheduling post ideas in my diary, because honestly, if I had really wanted to, I could have found time to post.
