So over the last year, I've learnt a bit. Like there's no telling how your taste would change. If you'd told me I'd be ending the year with a gold planner, I probably would have laughed in your face. Instead I've ended up with not one but two gold planners and I love them dearly. Be open to change.
Be prepared to try something new. I discovered I liked trying new things with my decor, alternating where I would put my washi tape or stickers.
No amount of reading or research you can do about your planner rings will prepare you for the heart breaking moment the rings don't line up. In these instances a good cry and consulting Philofaxy is recommended.
I also found I became a horder after getting my first planner. Who knew you could need so much washi tape? Let's not get me started on stickers....
With that in mind, I'm looking forward to learning lots more new things this year. Happy new year to you all!
