It’s that time of year again. New year, new semester, new classes, and a new planner! I truly could not imagine starting a new year without a fresh planner, as I use mine to outline my entire life. Not only can you use it to write down homework assignments or exams you may have, but also to remind you of any social events, to do lists, or anything else that goes on in your life. It helps me see my day, week and month laid out so that I know what to expect and what to prepare for, and it’s especially necessary to ensure a smooth transition into a new semester.
There seems to be a misconception that a planner only goes with school events, but avoid that stigma. Write down your best friend’s birthday, when you plan to take a nap, when you have to take a trip to the grocery store, and make sure you write down pay day! Your planner should resemble exactly what’s going on in your life, and serve as a secondary support to guide you through each moment.
Returning from a chilly winter break can be tough, but get excited to be greeted by a warm planner!
