Julie Kirk hosts a monthly round-up of people documenting their month in numbers. I've watched others do it and thought it was cool. But I never figured out how to do it (even though Julie has this wonderful tutorial). The idea of tracking numbers throughout the month simply felt overwhelming.
But then, this month, someone did a very nice month in numbers lay out which featured five numbers. Just Five. And that seemed do-able. And Fun.
About the same time, I was busy cutting and tearing and gluing paper onto a page in my sketch book for Aimee's Glue it Tuesday. I started with a doodle I had created during a work meeting and then taken home to water color. I added some complimentary papers.
There seemed to be a nice expanse for some journaling. So, I took the leap and decided to record some numbers from April. I decided to organize my numbers around travel, since that seemed to fit with my little compass doodle.
Here's what I came up with:
"24 miles to work - 13 classes taught; 2 finals written
2400 miles to Detroit, Mich. - 55 minute taxi ride downtown in traffic
58 miles to Santa Cruz for training - 13.2 miles in a half-marathon; 14 bunnies seen on the Coastside trail on a recent run
439 miles to Eugene, Oregon - 10 applications, 7 acceptances, 1 Duck."
This was a lot of fun, and I'm sure I'll do it again.
