- Bullet Journal Update: I thought I’d share a couple pics from my new Bullet Journal. I chose the Leuchtturm1917 HardCover Master Slim Notebook A4+ in black with dotted pages. A4 is a bit larger than 8 1/2 x 11 so the back pocket can fit a standard sheet of paper without folding it. So far, I’m doing all right with it. I’m used to a sketchbook size generally but not necessarily for note taking. I’m also trying not to get to “pretty” with it but I can’t help using colored pens. As you can see from the calendar pages below, I’m good at planning, but not so much with tracking…
- What I rediscovered this week: Tangrams! It’s a Chinese puzzle game where you create pictures using 7 shapes (5 triangles, 1 square, 1 parallelogram). In my quest for busy-mind games for my smart phone, I found the free TaniZen app. I’ve discovered it’s a little easier than using the physical puzzle pieces as you can move the pieces over the picture shape you’re challenged to match, and the app gives you hints…
- My favorite dream interpretation this week:

- My favorite from the inter-webs: Microsoft Word has been a thorn in my side this week. I’m working with a very large file that has multiple paragraph formatting going on and text wrap around images, etc. In an effort to get Word to “think” less and break paragraphs across pages without adding extra lines, I did a bit of Word research and found these two resources.
MakeOfficeWork basically goes through each function on the Word actions ribbon and all the action window function giving you a down-to-earth description of what each does. Most helpful in forming realistic expectations of what Word can/should do.

WordRibbon.Tips.net goes into a bit more detail and is project focused. So, if you want to learn how to create a letterhead template, add a background to your document and booklet printing. There is a lot of good information here, but be prepared to wander about a bit (but in a good way).
