Summer Vacation Goals 2016

Today is my second official day of my Summer vacation for this year. For you who don't know (because I know it's not like this in many other countries) we get a total of 25 vacation days during one work year here in Sweden, if you work full time. Which like 99% take out during the Summer or at least 4 weeks of it. Personally I always save 5 of mine for later, usually I take out a week in March the next year if I can.

I have never done well with these weeks. My body and my mind don't agree at all when it comes to four weeks off. While my body is always very thankful and in serious need of some rest my mind is in panic mode. I am dead serious when I say that I don't know what to do with myself when I don't have work in my routine. So I thought this year I'd put up goals. I mean why not? Goals are motivation and it's good to challenge yourself no matter how you decide to challenge yourself, right?

  • Catch Up On Fandoms! I am behind on so many shows. Not to mention movies that I've been dying to watch. I still haven gone and watched the new X-men and I want to fucking off myself. So I'm digging in deep and catching up on all my fandoms!
  • Finish Decorating! I am in the middle of changing themes/colors etc in my bedroom and also adding a few bits & pieces in the living room and other places. I want to finish this as much as I can during my time off. Re-vamping all the stuff I want to re-vamp and so on.
  • Get Ahead @Blog! I want to stock up on as many posts as possible before I get back to work. Because if I have a juice post draft pile to start with then I always have something to fall back on when work or life gets super busy. I also want to add a few things on my site, like a About Me page and more.
  • Cook Vegan Food! I want to feel more at home in the kitchen and I want to learn how to make more vegan food, also desserts and more. So I am combining it and I am going to do my best.
  • Be Creative! Meaning be creative that has no other purpose than being creative. Focus on things like scrapbooking/art journaling or make items for me and me only. Make jewelry custom for me along with re-vamping clothes etc.

Do you have any current goals? :)

Poprageous Love

I fucking love Poprageous clothes. It hits my little fragile Fangirl heart right on the spot! I've waited for so long for Ebay to catch up and make copies, like they do with many of Black Milks designs, but...Nope. I think I've seen very few on my daily Ebay browses but not the ones I truly want. I mean have you seen the Insane Harlequin line?! I may have to go against my principals surrounding what to spend on one clothing item soon...Ebay has made me a spoiled little geeky princess.

What Black Hole I Fall Into

It's been a rocky up and down time for the blog, all of the sudden I admit I fall into like this black hole and just disappear and then *poof* I come back with some random post. I have nothing to blame because the reason for this is my fulltime job. And I love my job so I don't "blame" it even if it's the reason :)

I work at a wholesale company. At this company I spend most of my days creating product sheets etc. Photograph + Edit products. I also manage the websites meaning like right now when we're in the middle of moving one of our shops I am in charge of getting all products etc in that new system.

I sit 8 hours in front of a computer on my workdays in others words. Even if I'm on the phone or do something creative I am still in front of the computer doing other things. So coming home, especially during cray times like these, I'm not in a huge computer mood haha.

I love my job. I really fucking adore and love my job for real. So I put my heart and soul into it giving it my all. Even during my health scares last year I did just that. Because my job, my workplace, is one of the few safe-havens I have outside of my home. And I feel so blessed to have that.

I'm closing in on my 5 year mark since I started and what an adventure it has been and still is. So I hope you all understand why I fall into a black hole disappearing from time to time :) I have a 4 week Summer vacation coming up after next week so I'm going to focus on the blog etc then! ^^

What do you work with? Do you love it?

Life During May

Hold it! It's June? It's already June?! I don't know what it's about this year but it seems to be moving faster than usual haha. Can be because I'm ill a lot and there for in more ways than one sleeping my way through it...Fuck it, Summer is here and I fucking love it!

I'm pretty sure I've spent like 80% of this month towards gaming...Because I may have become obsessed with a game I bought and I may have gone deep into that one...But I have watched stuff too, I swear!

I always have something I'm re-watching because it's good to have when you're a nerdy woman who also loves stuff like scrapbooking etc. Right now that something is Smallville.

Like I mentioned in my April post I hadn't watched Captain America: Civil War yet but I've fixed that during May, of course. And well...I am not that happy with this one, guys. I mean yeah it's a good movie and yes the acting was great but...No. I don't hate it but I don't love it.

I have been busy in this department this month! I bought The Division and I am obsessed with this game! And I love how it's an always online game meaning daily challenges etc so it never ends! Still haven't checked out the DZ zone in it because I actually don't have a PlayStation account yet allowing me to. I game a lot but never games I need that for but the time might have come.

One thing many are probably wondering about The Division is if it's any use to game it by yourself and my answer is yes. Oh yes! If you look at some gameplay and you feel that it's your kind of game I highly recommend it.

Finally gamed through Uncharted 3. Besides The Last of Us other games by Naughty Dogs haven't really stuck to me. I do looove this game and really enjoyed it so will most likely buy Uncharted 4 soon.

Since we're on the subject of Naughty Dogs...I re-gamed The Last of Us once again. It still hits me right in the feels and I still fucking love it. And I know that since Uncharted 4 has been released they are finally starting to work on The Last of Us 2!

My Planner Essentials

Since I both love my planner, love to share and I know many of you enjoyed my Plan On A Budget, mostly over on Twitter, I thought I'd keep sharing some Planner related posts. This one focusing on my own Planner Essentials. I am planning on continuing sharing these kind of posts so if there's anything in that area you'd like me to focus on, please let me know. But for now let's focus on those essentials!

Obviously! I myself mainly use a Frixion erasable pen in the color black, size wise I prefer 0,5. But since I doodle in my planner, inspired by bullet journals, I also use different pens to color things out etc.

Glue Pen + Scissors.
I decorate my planner and I if it's not a sticker I prefer using a glue pen since the stuff I put in there usually ain't that big. Scissor being to cut stuff to the shape I want them, like making a piece of washi into a flag or an arrow.

Sticky Notes + Page markers.
Between these two I probably use page markers the most. Mainly because they are perfect to mark out events etc and make it a bit more decor you know? But other sticky notes are badass for marking out events in the future since I don't write anything down completely until the week before.

Ruler + Washi Tape.
I can't draw a straight line even if my damn life depended upon it. So a little ruler is a life saver for a girl like me! I prefer the smaller ones since my planner is an A5. A larger one just gets in the way. It's also kickass to rip off washi if you decorate the bottom or top with it.

Mmmm I love me some washi. I use this for decoration, to mark out stuff more and I just use the damn hell out of those washi tapes! I try to go for washi that goes well with my theme for the week. Meaning if it's a blue colored theme, I will use my blue washi tapes.

YEEEEEEEES! I am sticker obsessed, well I'm stationery obsessed...I fucking LOVE stickers. I love the ones you use to mark out, like the polaroid stickers above. I love the decor ones. I love cute ones, the scary ones, the DIY ones...I love all the stickers. STICKERS FUCK YEAH!

I love hearing from you kitties!
What's your Planner Essentials?
