Daily Journal - September 18



Netflix and walk isn’t working out for me. Holding my phone up at eye level while walking (to protect my neck) is causing back and shoulder strain. Luckily, I have a new Audible credit today!

After deliberating for a month, I’ve decided to give Harry Potter a go because Stephen Fry! I adore the man’s accent. Plus it seems like almost everyone in the bujo community are HP fans and I am feeling left out.

I read the first four books like 18 years ago (OMG) and also watched the first few movies. The books were a gift and I enjoyed them enough. Just not enough to feel compelled to continue with new releases.

But my BeatsX earphones have been broken for many days now. I can’t use my wired ones because stupid iPhone 8+ doesn’t have a jack. My Beats Solo3 is out of juice. I have audio devices galore but I can’t use any!

I am so pleased with my decision. Stephen Fry reading Harry Potter is better than I imagined. He makes dialogue funnier and just brings the whole thing to life. I might even give Sherlock Holmes a try after I finish the HP series!

I love going for walks again now!

Meditation Zen

I’ve been tracking my meditation sessions on my Fitbit, which shows me my heart rate. This is what it usually looks like:

Today, it looks like this!

I mean, call me Guru Sheylara! Have I reached the first height of zen? Or, maybe, did I just fall asleep?



Today I’m grateful to the people who have made (spoiler free) elaborate character charts for Dark (Netflix) so I don’t have to. It makes watching this mind boggling series much easier!

Crabby apples

I seldom venture to the lower garden because it gets very wild there. So I was shocked to see that our crab apple tree has grown a million red fruits!
