As you have probably noticed in past posts or at my lack of even writing post my life is hectic. It is my own fault that I make it as crazy as it is, but I like the constant craziness. However, without Post It notes I don’t know if I would make anything on time or would turn in any assignments on time.
My planner is something I live by. If you ever see me in class my planner is always out and open. At this point I think it is just a comfort thing to have it. With my planner I not only use the dates provided to write down everything I have to do or turn in, but I also have Post It notes everywhere. To a lot of people my Post It notes seem color coordinated or that there is some meaning behind the colors, but that is not the case.
I use Post It notes for everything, especially just to get me through the week. While my planner does help me keep track of things I always have a Post It note on the end of my week to show what I have for the week. This is for social or academics so that I can keep track. For example this is what I have on my Post It note for next week.
Firebelly blog (M) ISL blog (T)
Morton Finney mtg (S) CMFK bus (Th)
AV sign in (W) SP oral online (F)
IMC tweets (T) ISL Pitch Kit (T)
Wang assignment (W) SP oral in class (W)
This is it so far. Thankfully most of these are class related. Obviously I can keep track of my fun stuff because that’s usually what I look forward to! Wish me luck.
I am clearly losing my mind when my blog posts are now becoming about what’s in my backpack. However it is true that I am losing my mind because lately all I can think about is how complicated my study abroad plan has become, but that is a completely different story. Lately, I have been doing really cheesy blogs, so I thought instead of doing another cheesy blog I would let you know what’s in my backpack.
This thought came up because I see this in magazines sometimes where they ask a celebrity what’s in their bag… Yes I know I’m not a celebrity or as cool as a celebrity, it’s fine. Just go with the flow on this one. Also I’m just going to go in the sections of my bag, because I have a lot of stuff in my bag and we could be here for a while if I do every individual thing.
Headphones, EOS lip balm, pens/pencils, Butler basketball tickets, change
All of these items are extremely important, but if I would have to pick one thing that I want to talk to you about it is my EOS lip balm. I realize this sounds ridiculous considering I had basketball tickets in my backpack, but you probably are tired of hearing me talk about Butler basketball. EOS LIP BALM IS AMAZING. For one you can get your entire mouth in one swoop. It’s like a two for one. Also it’s packaging is so cute, which I don’t see why that matters but it’s awesome and I love it. Just try it, it’s around $3 at Walgreens and it’s worth it.
Side note: Found out that EOS stands for Evolution of Smooth while writing this so that should tell you something.
Study abroad per-departure packet, Spanish book, Spanish notebook, planner
This is very typical of what you’ll see in my backpack on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings. If you know me then you know that I live by my planner. I am probably a planning addict. That doesn’t sound good when I say it like that, BUT I love my planner, and I feel so much better when everything is laid out. Just try it if you feel stressed out. Plus I might have splurged a little on my planner, so I think it’s really pretty. I know you are probably judging me right now. That’s fine, I know I’m a weirdo when it comes to the planner situation.
This is my Vera Bradley planner that I love.
So this is what happens when I’m stressed out and don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. I write really weird things, so for your sake and my sake I hope that the light at the end of the tunnel for study abroad becomes clear. Until then my posts might start to get weirder….
