Why I Cancelled My Gym Membership

I know what you’re thinking. But Sherry, what about your fitness goals? I still have them, I promise! I’m still working hard. Cancelling my gym membership doesn’t mean I’ve given up on trying to lose weight and get fitter and stronger.

I’m just going to try and do it another way.

How I’m Planning for NaNoWriMo 2019

Hello friends!

This year, I’ve decided to tackle NaNoWriMo. By hand.

Yes, I may be crazy, but to me it makes sense (and that’s all that matters, right?). With a full time job, I plan on doing some of the work on my lunch break. So, rather than cart around my laptop, I’ve decided it will be easier to chuck my notebook in my bag and cart that around instead. It’s lighter, smaller, and doesn’t need to be charged!

The only issue I had with the Ona Bowery bag is that it only had one insert. So, I made my own.

Here’s how I did it:

Bullet Journal

A BuJo Update

It’s been a while since my last bullet journal update. Since then, I finished my first notebook and moved into my second, another hardcover, dot grid notebook from Typo. The pages are a little wider than my first notebook, so planning my layouts took a little getting used to. One of the first things I put in my journal was a line spacing cheat sheet in the back that I can refer to.

But enough about the journal. Let’s have a look at my layouts for October.
