Don't Freak Out, But 2022 Planners Are Officially Here
Local stationery brand Papemelroti kicks off planner season 2021.
(SPOT.ph) With the pandemic still raging and no end in sight, it often feels as though we're still stuck in 2020. 2019, the blessing of a year we all took for granted, still seems to be what comes to mind when we use the phrase "last year," but here's a reality check: 2022 is less than 150 days away, as of writing. That means in just a few months, Metro Manila will hit the two-year mark since we first went into lockdown in March 2020. Don't worry, you're not alone. The passage of time is freaking us out, too. And to add to our existential panic, 2022 planners have officially arrived. Let that sink in.
The first official journals to kick off planner season 2021 are Papermelroti's popular Pocket Planners. Known for their cutesy designs, compact size, and (best of all) P20 price tag, these mini notebooks are a staple of planner season in the Philippines. In 2019, they were unveiled in September and in 2020, October. We guess the local stationery brand was extra excited this year.
A sentiment everyone seemed to share in 2020 was "I just want this year to be over." And while 2021 has been just about us rough (if not more so) than its predecessor, the attitude this year is a little different. In many ways, it feels like we're just watching years pass as the pandemic continues and the virus mutates, so being reminded that another year is right around the corner can be a tough pill to swallow.
But before you descend into total madness, why not reframe your perspective for a second? The great thing about planners is their ability to make us feel like we're in control. Life may be unpredictable, but having a tool that lets you plan out your future (uncertain as it may be) is always comforting. In an ever-changing COVID-ravaged world, hope for a better tomorrow is what keeps most of us going. So while the official arrival of 2022 planners may momentarily plunge you into existential dread, we suggest you also embrace it. The next year is right around the corner and who knows? It might just be better than this one!
Papemelroti's new Pocket Planners come in 12 adorable designs. Some feature delicate illustrations on their covers while others sport uplifting quotes. Each exudes the stationery brand’s signature rustic, made-with-love look. Inside, you’ll find calendar spreads for each month—perfect for dreaming up new activities, travels, and adventures throughout the year. So why not pick up one of these dated journals for yourself and start imagining the possibilities of what 2022 could bring?
