In this all-digital era, do you still use paper notebooks and planners? Raise your hand if you still do! I’m a HUGE fan of paper and pencil and I can’t quite imagine life without them yet. I’m the type of learner and do-er that recalls things better by writing them down of rather than chomping away on my laptop or phone.
My 6am essentials
Two months ago, I’ve made a big decision: I decided to shift my masters degree programs. From MBA Juris Doctor, I weighed all aspects, dropped the bomb, and approached my bosses for a recommendation for my admission to MA in Language and Literacy. Unless we’ve been friends forever offline, you probably didn’t know that I hold 1 degree and 2 diplomas: BSBA in Info Services Management and Diplomas in Pre-school Education and Culinary Arts. I work full time in corporate and I volunteer as an assistant teacher (I haven’t taken the LET yet) when time and bandwidth permits. My courses are not related at all (LOL) and they’ve helped me a whole lot in hacking this tricky thing called LIFE. *wink*
Now that I’m pressing myself to take my masters seriously (Lord help me with all my commitments at work and outside!), I need to be on point and focused on everything. I have several trips lined up until mid-2016, big projects at work that needs a lot of TLC, and my schooling is adding up to the toll. Keeping tabs on every single detail is a must and for the past two months, I’ve been getting good help from my new planner from Stradmore Notes.
Can I just say — how chic is my planner? It’s perfect to go with my daily palette thanks to Laureen Uy who’s partnered with Stradmore Notes to come up with this black, white, blush, and gold stationery. While it’s designed for students (as it starts on June), it’s also very fitting for yuppies who want a little help and dash of fun on their daily hustle.
There are 2 covers and I have both! One is purely for work (stripes, a PR gift) and the other one is for school and other commitments (dots, purchased at National Book Store for Php 499.75). The in-between months sections are super shala.
Oui my birthday month!
