Life in Pocket, My Life

Review year 2014 with Project Life

At the end of year, I always review my year to see what happen with me and what I should do better. This year I created Project Life album so I think it would be good if I review my year with Project Life as last page of Project Life.

So I created Best moments Journal Cards to write what’s happen in each month last year. You can check out the “Best Moments Journal cards” here.

Jobs

I changed job this year to smaller but happier company. I still work as User Experience Designer but the client and working style from both company is very different. I need to improve a lot of soft skills and also English skill since we work with foreigners.

However, I stop taking freelance jobs because I want to concentrate on project I want to do.

 

Projects

On 2013, I have “Just Do It” as one of my theme. I created a lot of new projects. Here’s some of them:

  • Project Life. It’s the project that I enjoy the most. Project Life help me record my life in creative way and allow me to stay away from computer.
  • Catisfy is digital files shop. I created printable sets of Journal cards for pocket scrapbooking and Project Life. Now I have only 15 sets but I plan to create more products for next year. You can check out here and sign up for newsletter to get FREE journal cards here.
  • Handmade Biz Blog and Community in Thai. I started writing about selling on Etsy since my friend asked me a lot of question and found that a lot of friends would like to sell on Etsy but never did because they think it’s hard and not much information in Thai. In one year, I helped many sell and set up their shop. I glad I started writing. I’m so happy when I see they happy when they got sell.

Financial

Not really good. I can save only 20% of all income because I spend a lot of money on camera, Macbook Pro and also 9 trips around Thailand. It’s so hard to say NO to travel!

Health

I’m getting worse from office syndrome because I haven’t workout much. I guess I sit incorrectly, so when most of works and project required me to spend time in front of computer, I will get back and arm pain. However, I’m working on practicing how to sit correctly.

Self Improvement

I think I keep doing  better. I’m more confident and be myself. I also know better what I like, what I want to do and what kind of person I be. I do a lot of research about myself. I take a lot of personality test. I learnt to responsible for my own life which I just realised it’s so important thing to know that I’m only one who have ownership of my life

Travel

I travelled 9 times on 2013 in 8 different places included Nakhon Sri Thammarat, Nakhon Rachasima, Chiangmai, Chiangrai, Koh Kood, Pattaya, Huahin, Koh Payam. I wish I could travel a lot like this every year. However, I think I need to slow down my trips on 2014 to save more money for bigger trip and also my retirement fund.

This is all about my life in 2013. Hope to get better on next year.

 

Life in Pocket

Lesson Learnt from Project Life

My Project Life album is now only 2 weeks left to finish. I’m so excited to finish my album.  I love looking back through the albums. It’s like I’m in that moment again. It’s reminder of joy, happiness or even a bad time. It’s just awesome!  However, I learned couple of things from a year with Project Life.

  • Be myself. Sometimes when I saw other’s Project Life album, I wish I could make my album like that. But that’s not my life. The stories and photos in this album is my life. I don’t have to be like others, I just need to be me to make my album beautiful as the way I am.
  • Your life is not that boring. When I started my album, I wonder what to include in my album. It’s nothing interesting. But I found that my life is not that boring even in the day I did nothing, I still have something to tell in my album. Actually, I got too many photos and stories to include. I think my life have more fun than the year I haven’t do Project Life.
  • Create my system. About half year after I do Project Life, I realised that life is not all about Project Life. I need to spend less time on Project Life and more time living my life. I create a system that would help me finish my album. I write journal everyday on journal cards, so I could put those cards to Project Life album and don’t have write it again. I also use the same page protector design, so I could print photo in the same size and not spend too much time on preparing photos to print.
  • It could be daily, weekly, monthly or event based. I started Project Life album by follow others’ rule by doing Project Life as weekly spread. I also use title card with number of week which I never understand why. I never remember which week I’m in now. So I will get rid of that in this year. I will make it as monthly basis instead.
  • Set time for Project Life. This is the important one. I usually work on Project Life on Sunday of every 2 weeks. I think it’s help me a lot to finish my Project Life spread. However, life is not always as you planned but that’s OK. Just try to stick to the scheduled time. 
  • Enjoy living life. You will have more stories for your album!

Now it your turn, what did you learn from Project Life?
