Happy new year! It is now 2016 and time for a fresh new start. After going back to school in September, I completely fell off the radar because I was having trouble adjusting. So many people have told me that first year is the hardest and things will get running second year but that was not true at all. I’m not sure about the term ahead of me right now but second year first term was by far the most difficult and stressful.
I haven’t blogged since August, but that doesn’t mean I’ve had nothing to blog about. For the past 3 months, I’ve made way more stationery purchases than I should have. The most exciting one would have to be my new planner of choice for 2016! And that is dun dun dun dun drumroll please…
the Hobonichi Techo!
I’ve always been into everything Japanese and in fact one of my friends from my Japanese language class told me about this planner and how wonderful it is to use. I was immediately sucked in after seeing so many instagrams dedicated to this planner that I just had to get it. I was originally going to wait until 2017 to get it because I had already filled in all my blank insert dates for my Pineider planner. Ultimately, I couldn’t control myself and gave all of my beautiful inserts to me friend and made the order for the Hobonichi Techo.
Mine is the Original Hobonichi Techo in Japanese which is in size A6. The planner uses super thin Tomoe River paper that is surprisingly very bleed-resistant. There are pages for every day of the year which makes it perfect for journaling on top of planning. I will be using mine for school and journaling. You can get an abundance of accessories for it including stencils and covers. I will be posting a haul soon on the accessories I got. There are other sizes and types of planners from Hobonichi Techo as well! A quick google should provide you with a plethora of information.
And there it is! My planner of choice for 2016! Hopefully it’ll help me keep track of my life because my memory has been getting worse and worse for some reason.
I’m also planning to do some regular posts so I don’t fall behind on blogging. Please look forward to it!
