Keeping Track

Lately, I’ve been using my computer’s calendar more than usual. Not because I have appointments to remember–the exact opposite, in fact: I keep forgetting which day of the week I’ve reached. Normally I visit Boyfriend at school every weekend or so, which makes it fairly easy to keep track of what day it is. On Thursday I leave to go see him, on Monday morning I come home, and with just a few days between it’s easy to recall if it’s a Friday or a Saturday–while he’s gone over the holidays, I no longer have these figurative bookmarks helping me to track where exactly I am in the week. Luckily, I’m very fond of calendars, and the ones below are pretty enough that checking the date is more of a treat than a chore.

Some of the silly holidays on the desk calendar above are actually real–bills establishing these sorts of ridiculous celebrations pass through Congress easily and quietly–but I like the idea of simply creating a holiday. Mom and I often celebrate “Emergency Christmas,” which usually seems to pop up sometime in March.

Fortune Cookie Wisdom Wall Calendar by Messy Bed Studio

Mom and I made up a rule that fortune cookie fortunes won’t come true unless you eat the cookie–something to keep in mind next time you get a good (or bad!) fortune. I actually don’t particularly enjoy fortune cookies, but I love their fortunes–Boyfriend often lets me open his cookies for him, which is one reason I also love him.

The envelope journal above looks like a fun DIY. Hmm…

      Thanks for making such a fun calendar! I love the little fortunes but there’s no point just keeping little pieces of paper, so it’s the perfect idea!

  2. I love, love, LOVE that Silly Holidays calendar. I will celebrate National High-Five Day from here on out. haha
