Five Books, One Plan

I just finished my nightly workout and I am exhausted. Everything is sore, but I feel surprisingly relaxed. I had to change a couple of the exercises tonight due to existing back problems, but I should get the same results in the end!

Today, I set out to relax and make bullet journals for everything I’m doing. As I searched through my piles of notebooks, I picked the final contenders for the job. I’m really excited to get them all set up and start using them. I have all of my pens ready and a ton of scrap paper to help me plan the layout for each one. Since I slept a lot today, I will probably spend tonight working, relaxing and getting the journals squared away (maybe even play a game or two)!

I’m still a bit stressed from today, but I’m a lot better than I was before. I’m just hoping that everything will be a bit better tomorrow. All I can do now is take it slowly and do my best!

Another Bullet Journal

As I continue on my path to bettering myself, I am starting to get mentally cluttered. When I was cleaning up my room, I came across my collection of notebooks (some brand new, others with only a few pages used). I have decided that since I have so many notebooks, that every section of this project will be getting its own journal. The main one is a general one for my blog, then the rest will be for fitness, life, makeup/nails, a habit tracker, etc.

Today has already dealt me a panic attack, so I will first be trying to calm down. After that, I will be catching up on my work and tackling the project of creating a library of bullet journals. Hopefully I will calm down soon so I can’t get some work done, but I’m not going to try to force it.

My mind is blank and racing at the same time, so this post will be kept short. I’m still hoping that this day will turn out alright, so I guess all I can do for now is wait and see.

First Bullet Journal

Today was pretty good. I got back into my school work and organized things for my job, as well as get everything together for my very first bullet journal!

I am terrible at keeping track of things, and I know task lists help me more than anything. Task lists won’t be able to keep track of everything I need to do for work, school and this blog, so I figured that I would have a book that I could keep everything organized, from blog post ideas to my hours for work!

Basically, everything I need to do in my day-to-day life will be in this book. There are so many things I want and need to do, that I need to micromanage myself so I don’t fall behind and become even more overwhelmed than I already am.

On the list of things I want to do with Rooplixoo, I want to start making videos. I keep saying that I’m going to film my journey (which includes many different areas of interest), but I constantly put it off.

I’ve never done this before but, for anyone who reads this, comment on this post if you like the content, if you would change something I do, or anything else. Eventually, I would like to have a community of people like me who are trying to grasp the concept of life while also having fun.

A Lesson Learned

Last night I made the mistake of going to bed without washing my face. The makeup still looked decent, but it was plastered onto my face! Water couldn’t get this stuff off of me!

This has happened to me before, but I didn’t care and just let it wash off when it wanted to. With this project, I have to stay on top of this.

Today, I actually used towelettes and a peel-off face mask for their intended purposes: to clean and refresh! I honestly forgot I had these, but I remember only using the towelettes in the summer because they felt cool on my face, and the face mask because I enjoyed peeling it off my face. They’re actually useful and would highly recommend Burt’s Bees and Freeman products to anyone starting off with makeup or looking to try something new!

My ideal daily routine is as followed:

  1. Wake up and wash up
  2. First blog post
  3. Makeup and take pictures
  4. School and work
  5. Wash face
  6. Second blog post
  7. Sleep

Once I nail waking up at a normal hour and staying up, it’ll get easier. I originally started writing this post at 10 AM, and it’s now 4:30 PM. I have never had a great sleeping pattern, but my body is now completely out of whack.

I won’t be doing makeup today, but I will be working on my bullet journal and school. I am going to keep trying to get this right, no matter what it takes!
