keeping organized

Here I am going to write about the things that keep me organized. I like being organized and on top of things.
One thing is the recollections creative year planner from Michaels'. I like how there are different books and stickers to put your information and ideas. The dividers that come with the binder and premade sets are cool but I would like to have more than the top three sections. I have three of these binders – the smaller one, but they came out with a larger size and one with a zipper case/enclosure.
Photo boxes have come in really handy, the ones that I have gotten were only two dollars and fifty cents. These boxes are sturdy and hold more than just photos, like the clasp plastic envelopes from Dollar Tree or Dollarama. Which are also good for sorting and organizing.
Planners keep me organized, I have two on the go and I also do to do lists. Sticky notes are a good thing. At times I can go overboard with them but used well it is fantastic.
Having items organized in binders and written down are great for me. For others it is on their phone and other gadgets. It is somewhat helpful to me but I need that pen to paper.
Certain dividers – whether dollar store, diy or more expensive are a good way to divide and section drawers and desks.

Goals for the Rest of the Year

As I am writing this, it is June and half of 2017 has gone. On YouTube, I have gained about three new subscribers – which I am thankful for, almost 70 people in about five years of YouTube. I have switched over to blogger and gained a few more follows on Instagram. And this is just on my social media pages.

Now, I am going to tell you what my goals for the rest of the year is. Hopefully get as much and more done before this year comes to an end. So my first goals relate to my YouTube channel. By the end of this month I hope to get seventy to seventy five subscribers. And on Instagram sixty to sixty five. So by December I hope that I reach my goal of one hundred subscribers, if not more. I hope to write more blog posts in back up so I upload them to you to read. The same goes for my videos for my channel – which is well on its way. There is a goal to get a better camera and have a better place to record. The weather is getting better in Canada, so hopefully I can do a few outside.

Non-social media related goals is to make plans and a timeline to go to Australia. I will go with my younger sister to work and travel for up to two years. We are working on making more money and saving so we can travel a lot in the future. Also I have complete two thirds of a goal – giving blood three times this year. So far I have done it twice, and I can do my third in August around the time I booked a week of vacation.

I am continuing the goal to read four books every month to get to my thirty book goal for the year – which I will soon reach and surpass. Every month so far but May I have done so. I am doing well because in the first two months I read more than enough to cover up that month. Also I am working on writing a book about King Ludwig II of Bavaria and participating or participate in the three Nanowrimo sessions. Which happen in April, July and the official one in November.

when do you feel most creative?

This post is going to be a quick post, a lot like my other posts.

So what makes me feel most creative? When do I feel it? What about you? When do you feel most creative?

I feel most creative more into the evening and night. I feel more energized to do my posts, gods eyes and so on. To me I feel I can get a lot done in this period of time. I do most of video recording during the day – more natural light. But at times I do record at night. I also read at night so I can finish books, some to record for you and those who just watch my channel.

To get me creative it is helpful ideas, good music and a lit candle and maybe the diffuser going to. Also watching other YouTube videos are helpful as well. Looking into articles of stuff that come to my mind can be helpful into ideas. It can also lead to other ideas to write or talk about. Going to the library and reading books can be helpful to read and record videos. Or to just add information into a writing.
