Every time a new year begins and I am trying to get organized for the coming months, I always decide I need to try to keep up with a calendar. The same thing usually happens every year. I start the year off keeping track of everything and then as time goes by, my calendar using days slowly come to a halt. Maybe it’s because I learned the routine of the day to day or maybe it’s because my calendars get filled with doodles, but either way, I am not good at keeping up with them. I somehow still remember things and get things done, but I just don’t write it down. The only times I religiously kept up with a calendar were the summers in High School when I worked two jobs teaching swimming lessons & waitressing. And in that case, a schedule was much needed otherwise I’d be getting a phone call from an angry parent telling me I missed their kid’s lesson. Never happened, but that would have been no bueno.
So every summer instead of going out to buy a whole year planner, I would go into my old school Microsoft Word and print off a few of their black & white calendars. I would then throw them in a folder and call it good. Surprisingly, that method worked quite well for me throughout the years. The only problem? They were not cute. And since everyone likes cute things (right?), I thought the new year would be a good time to release a fun, free 2013 Calendar printable PDF!
