Back in September, I started using a bullet journal as my daily planner. I picked up a simple black grid journal by Pauper Paper Press ($12) and have used it consistently for the past 9 months. In May, I purchased a Leuchtturm 1917 journal ($20) and just last week, finally switched over to my new planner.
I haven’t blogged about bullet journaling much, although I had initially planned to. Mostly, I’ve posted a few photos here and there on Instagram.
Anyway, since it’s the long weekend and I’ve had lots of time on my hands, I worked on practicing floral doodles and lettering. These are mostly taken from Pinterest, so I can’t say that these are particularly original.
A nice way to spend the afternoon while listening to Spotify:
Did a bit of shopping on the iOS App Store and found the Tangle Library a few days ago. Funny enough, I was looking for yoga apps, but TL advertised itself as ‘yoga for the brain’.
Oh heck, why not?!
As everyone is counting down to vacation, it seems that all the staff and students have been stressed and a bit high strung. No one seems to want to do work and everybody is either trying to wrap things up or figure out how to entertain students as they do not want to do any work.
My day went well but partly because I didn’t sleep well last night, I felt a little stressed myself. So after school, I came home and had a shower, sat down with my favourite (instant) Caribbean rice and bean bowl and doodled. This is a great app for $5! It definitely did help me relax and remind me that I do not have enough art in my life at the moment.
Hmmmm, maybe a visit to Paintlounge when I get back to Toronto …
J. and I skipped out on a Halloween party tonight.
Instead, we stayed in to play Dominion and just hang out. Later in the evening, I finally took out my sketch pad and decided to practice some body shapes. It’s been a long time since I’ve drawn anything. I decided to use some Love and Rocket characters, since I love Jaime Hernandez.
Here is one of the images:
I really miss drawing. I used to do it a lot when I was younger, especially in high school. I find that doing it is very meditative.
It was nice just to have another quiet Saturday night.
