101 in 1001 #1

101 in 1001 01The idea is to come up with 101 goals to be completed in 1001 days (2.75 days).

I wanted my goals to be “measurable”, so nothing like “be better at this and that”. Most of the goals on my list are like mini challenges, so in order to not get overwhelmed I’m going to pick a few each month to work on.

My deadline is October 14th 2016.

See my complete list here.

Until the end of February I will work on the following goals:

#2 Read 1 book

#6 Contact book

#8 Get photos in albums

#16 Visit one museum

#52 Make 2 cookbook recipes

#53 Make 2 pinterest recipes

#68 Try 1 new food

#77 Do 1 random act of kindness

#87 Add 20 things to the list of 500 things I’m grateful for

#95 Cleaning routine

#99 Make a budget

Lately I’ve been a scatterbrain

I’m one of those persons that always appear prepared for pretty much everything. I never show up late, my calendar is always updated and I pay close attention to detail.

But, lately I’ve found that I’ve become much more of a scatterbrain and I hate that (I don’t hate everyone who is scatterbrained, it’s just not how I see my self).

I’ve spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out what is different, and I think I come to a conclusion. In the past few months I haven’t used my calendar as much and I’ve also stopped putting Important documents into their folders, so I need to go back to doing that. I wasn’t completely satisfied with neither my calendar nor my filing system before so I think this is a good excuse to revisit both and try to find something that suits me better.

I will post my progress as the projects move along.

Morning Routine

I posted my evening routine a month ago and I thought that you guys would like the hear about my morning routine. 

As I mentioned when I posted my evening routine, I don’t follow this every day, but when it happens I feel so much more relaxed, and ideal morning.

  • Get up first time the alarm clock rings
  • Open the door for the balcony
  • Turn on the radio
  • Pee (we all have to do it)
  • Brush teeth
  • (If I take a bath, this is the time to do it, but usually I do it at night)
  • Brush hair
  • Drink one large glass of water
  • Put on water for tea
  • Prepare breakfast
  • Make the bed
  • Turn on the computer
  • Eat breakfast and read the news
  • Check email
  • Turn of computer
  • Do the dishes
  • Find clothes
  • Brush teeth again
  • Get dressed
  • Hair
  • Makeup
  • Make sure that the bag is packed

Project Life 2014: weeks 1 and 2 + plans for 2014

General thoughts:

I’m currently single, with no children, and I don’t have a lot going on. But I’ve been thinking about what would be interesting to look back at in 10 or 20 years, and I thought that now I have the time to document what life is like in Denmark in 2014. I can document what’s on tv, what foods are in, what cars look like, and so on, all the things I probably won’t have time to document later on in my life.Project Life 2014 spread 01

Format:

I’m changing things up this year, so I will try a 6×8 format. I somehow find this format easier to handle, and it requires less space. I didn’t have a hard time filling in the pockets in 2013 but I couldn’t really get the look I wanted. I’m a very visual person in all aspects of life, so while it might not be important to everybody, I prefer my PL to be aesthetically pleasing (at least to some extent).Project Life 2014 spread 02

Time frame:

I’m not set on doing one or two pages per week, I’ll just fill in the pages as I go. I usually have more photos from the weekend than workdays, and the amount of photos is really dependent on what’s going on in my life.Project Life 2014 spread 03Photos:

One of my goals this year is to use my DSLR more, so I’ll try to include less iPhone photos in my PL this year.

For the beginning of the year, I’m going back to printing my photos at home. It’s just more convenient, and it allows me to sit down whenever I feel like it and fill in my pockets.Project Life 2014 spread 04

Inclusions:

This year my focus will be on journaling and photos. I’ll include memorabilia as well but not as much as I did last year, I’ll try to focus on the stories.

Thank you 2013

It’s a new year, I’ve already created my first scrapbook page, it’s titled: “It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life” (and the natural continuation: “and I’m feeling good“). I would like to make the first blog post of the year a tribute to 2013. My word of the year might be forward, but part of my resolutions is to learn from the past, so let’s take a look back at all the wonderful things that happened in 2013.

Dear 2013,

I would like to thank you for all that you brought and all that you thought me. I had my heart-broken, but it reminded me that I cannot control everything. It also proved who would be there for me no matter how stupid I act, and for that I am truly grateful.

All the travel that was done made up for 2012 which brought no travel at all. I went back to Jordan, wonderful, warm Jordan. For the first time in my life I set foot in East Asia. 16 days in China, drove me slightly crazy, so many people in so little space. Upon return I swore I wouldn’t return to Beijing, but maybe to Shanghai, but as I look back on our time there I would like to go back at a different time of the year.

2013 was a year of amazing music. Beyoncé was my favourite. Two music festivals with wonderful ladies.

So that’s all, thank you for being so wonderful 2013.

Love,

Heidi
