The Curious Case of Benjamin Button The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Nice short story. Interesting how the people around Benjamin told him he had to simply try harder at not growing younger.

The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13 3/4 The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13 3/4 by Sue Townsend

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I probably would have liked this book more as a teenager because I could have related to it more. The character seemed a bit silly at times, however, his behaviour does seem to fit the weirdness of teenagers. Even if it didn’t sweep me away, I did enjoy it, it made me laugh several times.

batman the mega-bat

"Supercute bat!"

How I did it: Visited a petting zoo that had bats. They let us touch and pet the animals and I also touched a skunk and an armadillo. It helps that he knew ‘people’ and only eats fruit.

It took me 1 day.

It made me Happy

See more progress on: hold a bat

Earlier this year I bought the Plannerism Planner because I liked the idea of having a planner that helped me set goals. I used it for a few months and enjoyed it, but found the paper not working quite well with my fountain pens and ink. So I strayed.

I bought a Leuchtturm1917 Academic Week Planner because I got hooked on the columns. And Leuchtturms have paper that works well with fountain pens and inks.

Tags inks love paper planning started week work

Colourcoding in my planner.I have taken some time recently to work out what works best for me and my planner. I have a Leuchtturm1917 Weekly Planner, and though I love the paper — almost all my fountainpens and inks work great on it — the layout of the week has started to bug me. I just can’t do only three lines on a Saturday / Sunday…

So, I once again ordered a Plannerism Planner, in teal. It has super-awesome weekly layout! Every day gets a full column so no more trying to squeeze a lot of stuff into a tiny box!

One thing I do want to bring to this PlPl: in the Leuchtturm, whenever I wrote down an appointment (medical, dinner with friends, visiting family) I’d draw a tiny line in the matching colour on the annual overview pages. I colour-code my type of appointments and this makes it very easy to see, at a glance, if I risk overbooking myself. It also lets me use my pink glitter gell-pen (FTW!) to mark days that I don’t want to do anything more in.

My preciousssssss!I wanted this pen for a while and decided to treat myself to it. Its arrival experienced some delay (apparently, we have postal strikes) but it did arrive safe and sound eventually.

And it looks absolutely stunning in real life. The photos don’t capture the shiny of the flowers very well, and it looks much better in daylight than it does in artificial light. I bought it for the pretty-factor, and much to my delight, it also writes well. I wrote several letters with it so far, and yes, after four pages my hand will hurt, but normally I don’t even last four pages.

Some more photos of it, and its writing:

Not very well lit but you get the idea. Not listed: platinum preppy with blue ghost and Waverley (in repair). And I have a TWSBi mini 1.1, not 1.5. Oops.
