The time is here...
While the majority of my friends are out partying and skipping class to relax a little while longer, I'm the organized chick with the 3 planners and a million highlighters. I rarely (if ever) go out with friends during this week because it's the one week I know for sure that I will have SOME form of down time. So I embrace it for all it's worth and get myself together!
As part of my January goal to get organized, I'm going to spend the next few posts showing y'all how I keep myself from going insane during the year.
This is my current preparation week set up:
I've got my hour-by-hour planner out, working out this week's craziness. I've also got a Lilly planner that is my other lifeline, but we will cover that later this week.
Pulled up on my computer is the world's greatest calendar app, Busy Cal. It has saved my life more than a few times. If you have an Apple product that connects to it (MacBook, iPhone, iPad), you NEED to invest in this application. Here is what my month of January looks like right now (don't be fooled, this is an EASY month, regardless of how busy it may look):
At first, I was not convinced that this app was much different than the standard iCal, but it has blown my mind and it's perfect for updating on the go when I may not have my planner out, and need to mark a date. Since I'm never away from my computer or phone, this calendar always stays updated with meetings, tests, and everything else.
Later this week, I'll go into more detail about how I organize my other planner as well as my weekly lists.
Happy syllabus week y'all!
