The Sunday Currently, Volume Forty Two

A simple craft project, turning a can into my personal dustbin using washi tape!


CURRENTLY...


CREATING... my post on my Taobao mystery packs. I got a pack of 10 sticker sheets as part of buying a storage folder, and got a mystery pack of 25 washi tapes!

PLANNING... a schedule to transfer my Japanese notes from the lesson sheets I got from language school to another folder. This will free up space on my shelves for more stationery storage x)

ADDING... stationery items into the shopping cart to keep track of pretty things I find along the way.

DISLIKING... the intermittent internet connection. This week was worse than previous weeks. I do hope it will improve soon!

WATCHING... the (not-so)-live stream of Outside Xbox playing Overcooked 2. There is something hilarious about teams failing to play the game well xD



THINKING... of events that I can attend this week. It seems like a pretty quiet week next week.

HOPING... to have a smooth-sailing two weeks leading up to a major presentation. Gotta take things one step at a time~

[Unboxing] Hobonichi 2019


If you follow my Instagram, then you would know that I have gotten my first Hobonichi diary! I placed my order via the Hobonichi website on 2 Sep, which was the first day they launched the cover I wanted. My items were shipped on 8 Sep, and reached me in a few days!


I got the A6 Original planner and cover in Champignon. Obviously, it is cheaper to buy in a set than to buy them separately.  Since this is my first daily planner since starting work, I got the smaller A6 version, single-book, so that I feel less pressured to fill it up XD I got the original because I felt that the Japanese text quotes are prettier than their English counterparts.


All online orders of the diary come with the 3-Color Jetstream Ballpoint Pen and Not-Scary Bear Paperweight. These freebies are exclusive to online orders!



Shipping contributed a large portions of the total cost, but it was definitely worth it! I was not going to be in Japan to buy stationery soon, and I was worried about my desired cover running out of stock.

I am looking forward to filling up this planner with handwritten journal entries, hand lettering & doodle practices and of course, stickers, photos and colours!

I was tempted to keep the box the items came in, but I threw it away in the end because I couldn't find a use for it XD

The Sunday Currently, Volume Forty One


Work has picked up for this week with several meetings taking up majority of the time. I have been just watching Youtube videos when I get home from work x) More meetings are scheduled for the next two weeks, but I hope to be able to stay afloat!


CURRENTLY...

READING... Adekan. I remember reading this manga before, but I cannot remember why I stopped reading it. Re-reading it from the beginning brings back fond memories!

THINKING... about eating lesser this week because I have been feasting the past week.

LOVING... my new hobonichi that arrived this week! I am so excited to journal in it come 2019.

HOPING... to restart my exercise schedule again after eating so much lol!

EXTENDING... my free Skillshare trial by one month. I wanted to cancel before the billing cycle began and the website offered an additional month for free. Why not?
