Hello my dear readers,

Are you ready to leave this year behind yourself? This year had very good effects (getting bachelor's degree / starting master studies) and very bad ones (herniated disc and a summer full of trying to recover / having to quit work therefore) so I am a bit ambivalent about this year, although I think the good parts overweighed. I really do look forward to 2014 since I will spent it almost completely in Japan and Korea! 2014 should've been the year of my boyfriend and I, since we came together on a 14th, but I fear we won't see each other more than a month altogether, which is... kinda sad. I hope he forgives me :x But if I'm lucky he will visit me in Korea, crossing fingers for that! :3

Soooo I was on the long and difficult search for a new calendar! I love calendars, as a student I just have to many dates to remember like my schedule, working hours, meeting with friends, presentations, exams and many more I cannot live without my calendar. Plus, when I was in Japan I noted everything important there so it was really handy over a long period of time. I had a green hardcover Totoro calender this year and definitely wanted something cute yet not too pinkish/girly at the same time. Plus, I didn't want a hardcover because my Totoro calendar turned kinda dirty after some time in my handbag :/

When browsing Ebay I found this super adorable calendar from the Korean character Molang! It's a fat little bunny and just so adorable. The calender came with stickers and even a Molang fan as a gift.

 I got the mint one; it was long not available so I ordered pink (the only one available at that time) but they weren't able to deliver and ask me if I would be okay with the mint one instead. Needless to say, it was no problem for me! :D

I admit: the stickers were a MAIN selling point for me, I just lovelovelove cute stickers. I think I bought a ton back in Japan but I never use them because they are so pretty XD I really do use these stickers though and suprisingly I found a matching sticker for all of my friends when I marked their birthday! I think its really fun to embellish your personal calendar :)

This calender has a yearly, monthly and weekly section for you to write in, which is very important for me. I always mark my friend's birthdays in the yearly section and always have stuff like university or work in the monthly section so that I see everything at once to get a good orientation when I have time to do whatever. The weekly sections are really big and you have lots of space to write!

In terms of quality, this calender is really good. I spent 17€ which is a decent price for a calendar in my opinion, most calenders in Germany are 15 - 20€ anyways and it was 13,200 Won in Korea which is about 13€ - can't really not complain :) The calendar is sturdy, it doesn't feel cheap or as if it may be torn apart soon, I am very satisfied with this product and I definitely recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Korean popculture or like cute stuff in general :)

The only thing that might be a downside for some people: This is a diary with no specific year, so you have to enter month and dates yourself - I didn't really mind that point since I like personalizing my stuff but some people who are not into crafting or want a completely ready to go product might not like this as much as I did :)

You can get this diary at YESSTYLE or Ebay, I searched "Moland Diary" :) Make sure to share your favorite calendar with me if you already found one! ^___^

Lots of love,

oh, hello there. i'm yasuhiro mochizuki and i'm the cool kid who made this layout. i'd rather you not attempt to take this code and alter it or take this code, strip it down, and use it as a base code. if you really need a base code that badly, feel free to send me an email with what type of base code you need and we can talk about it. that said, i can't take credit for absolutely everything here. so here are all the dope resources i used here: all of the fonts used in this layout can be credited to google fonts save for calibri, which is a system font. the social media sidebar links were created using an icon font from we ♡ icon fonts. most scripts used can be found through a good google search, except for the script that gives the page it's tabs; i don't remember whether i hand coded that or if i found it through another blogger. if you're privy, you can find me predominantly on twitter and occasionally on my blog. toodles!
