Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


I'm A Calendar Girl - Aloha!

Yes I am.
I don't have a smartphone or any digi-anything calendar. I like my paper with pretty pictures that I stick in my wall all old-fashion like and write stuff in the little boxes until they flow into the other boxes and I hope I wont have to write anything in those boxes when the days come around.

What about you?
1. Do you still use paper calendar? 
2. Or do you have everything digital or just keep it in your head? 


What is your foodie crave for this week?

We went to Carrabbas on Tuesday and I fell in love again. This is my second time with them and I can't wait until I get to visit again!

And a little about me :)

1. What is the weather like where you are and do you like it?

Today it is 70s and will be tomorrow too. Warm in Winter. lol And earlier in the week it was 60s and 50s. 

2. When you're sick what do you seek comfort from?
I don't know. I just do what I always do. Work for the family.  I drink hot chocolate though.  Oh and I eat my chocolates, my favorite ones. 

3. What do you need to do before the end of the month?

Take the Christmas tree down. 
Start studying.
Find a routine for me and baby girl

4. Have you ever served on a jury?
No. I hope I wont have to. I don't like holding anyone's fate in my hands. I was summoned though. ugh. 

5. If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?
A cat. Everyone loves them and they are treated like mini gods. 
But I reserve the right to change my mind tomorrow.

  1. I use a paper calendar and basically live by it. I also try to use the calendar on my phone, but I usually forget to put things on there.

  2. I'm all about paper too! I have a wall calendar on a bulletin board in front of me, and my paper planner sitting right here on my desk!

  3. Must have it on paper. I tried the apps and found out I just would forget about things. Need it to be visable to keep me on track.

  4. i actually prefer both, i like to have one i can look at but also like to pull today up on my phone and see whats going on if im on the go

  5. I live by my paper calendar - no digital schedule for me. I have a 3-ring binder where I keep monthly calendar pages. I also have a tab for each of my four children, to keep important school or medical papers that I might need to refer to. It also contains all kinds of personal/emergency information. My family knows that if something ever happens to my husband and I, they need to look in my binder for all our info. I would be lost without my binder.

  6. I'm all about using a wall calendar - I don't carry my phone with me everywhere I go, so when I'm passing any of the 3 calendars I have strategically placed, I won't forget an important appointment. :) I do add it to my Outlook calendar on my laptop though, since I'm on it a lot - but haven't added any scheduled things to my phone...yet! :)

  7. I am totally a paper calendar girl! In fact, i'm still on the hunt for a 2012 calendar

  8. I use both, but prefer my phone. This reminds me that I need to pick up a 2012 Calendar.

  9. The teacher in me needs a paper calendar. I have one now that I am not in love with and just may have to print a simple one that works better for quick glances of schedules.

  10. I use both, paper and computer calendars.

  11. Definitely paper, if it goes missing, I have no idea what our schedule is. I like writing on it and keeping us organized that way.

  12. I have both. I do love Google calendar because it syncs easily between my phone and computer.

    Have a great Friday.

  13. I use both paper and digital calendars

  14. I have a paper calendar...actually like 2 or 3 in different areas - 1 on fridge, 1 at desk, and another is idk I like having an actual paper calendar like you.

  15. I use a paper calendar too. I tried using a device, but that didn't last long! Following from the blog hop.

  16. I'm still a paper calendar user too! As much as I love technology it just doesn't cut it for a calendar :D

  17. I mostly use a wall calendar. But I use my calendar on my computer a LOT. my email program has settings where I can add TO DO lists and such on my calendar so I use it alot as well.
    I found you on

  18. Hopping by from :) Love it if you could follow back!

  19. Got to have the paper calendars. I have one at work and one at home. They are very necessary as our work schedules change day to day and our breaks are also scheduled. I also pencil in other things I would like to do. I used to put it in my cell when I worked the previous job but the schedule was not as confusing and the new job does not let us have our cells at work.

  20. I'm still on that Lays Potato Chip crave. I can't get enough of it!

  21. Oh, I'm most DEFINITELY a calendar girl-seriously, I can't imagine not having a calendar. I'd be so lost O.o

    I think I like having a calendar because I like seeing that what I've been doing and what has been going on as the year goes by :)

  22. Calendars - all of the above. My main calendar is now my iPhone, but I have to have one on the wall of my office, here, to look at on the quick. I also have it in my head, and I have a Lego calendar I'll give to my son when he's old enough not to lose all the bits. :)
