Kinda nerdy but I thought I would share. I like using a paper diary. I’m a poor student so I can’t afford an iphone so having a paper diary is really handy to keep track of all the strains of my life. I started looking for a diary in September to cover my academic year but unfortunately they don’t seem to make academic diaries for university students, only school students. I wanted a diary that would take me to September next year, when I will be handing in my dissertation. Nothing.
So I took my search online and found Toad, a little British company which uses FSC certified paper to make their diaries and journals and also have various other environmental certifications. Here you can customise your own diary. Start it in whichever month you want, page a day, 2 days to a page or a week spread over one or two pages. Choose the cover colour. The size you want. Even the way you want it held together.
Last week my new Toad diary arrived in the mail. I’ve already been filling my pages with lists, reminders and appointments.
Really handy if you need an unconvential start date. Like 1 October.
Note: I paid for this diary myself.
