Merry End of Semester!

whole-planner-1I am finally done with the semester!  Sorry I keep neglecting everyone.  I’ve had my nose in the books for the last three weeks.  I hope everyone is having a happy holiday season.  I’ve been decompressing from academics by creating things for next semester.  Since it is so close to Christmas, I have created a new 2017 planner with matching note paper!!  As usual this particular one is geared toward students, just because I am a student.  I don’t make things I won’t use.  I am really excited about this particular one because it is a neutral color with gold and black!  I hope you all enjoy it!matching-note-paper-1

 

 

Neutral 2017 Planner

Matching Note Paper

I Think I Have Learned How…

2017-financial-plannerOkay my lovelies, I have finally gotten to the point where I think I have come up with a way to balance all on my plate without going nuts or dropping the drinks.  Calculus, Physics, and my other classes are keeping me occupied during the week, and I can’t seem to find the time to squeeze in a blog post.  So, I have decided that in the interest of keeping up with my blog with juggling everything, I will be posting my blog on Fridays instead of Wednesdays.  It gives me a little break from the insane amounts of studying I do in order to do something fun.

It is the time of the year when you start to think about the next year and getting your new planner around.  So, I have created a 2017 financial planner to go with the new 2017 planner I am in the process of creating.  I’m planning to create two planner types:  one like my student planner with the 1.9”x1.5” boxes, and one with regular happy planner sized boxes on full sized paper.  Those planners will be coming out in the next few weeks.  I may even have an extra color in the planners because sometimes I have problems with choosing a color because I want ALL THE COLORS!  Or at least it will be a mixture of all the colors into one single planner for those of us who have problems choosing just one color.  I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoy making them.

As always, these are for personal use only, don’t sell, copy, distribute these without my permission and instead of giving someone the file, direct them to my blog.  Enjoy!

First Week!

Ok, so the first week of the semester is always busy.  Homework, and getting back into the routine of getting up at the crack of dawn to go to get to class on time.  I didn’t get all of my class syllabi in time to plan my semester before it started.  So, I am playing catch up.  However, it allows for me to take more pictures, and slow down a bit as I go.

So, in order to plan, I go through a single syllabus at a time when planning the semester.  This way, my brain has a single focus, and I can ensure I don’t miss any deadlines for the class.  I always color coordinate my classes.  This year the code goes like this:  German- blue, Physics- pink, Calculus- orange, Computer Programming- green.  I make sure I have proper amounts of sticky notes in these colors as well as page flags.  So, basically by the end of my Semester planning session, the monthly layouts are covered in sticky notes before I ever put pen to paper.

As you can see, I chose to use the peach vertical planner this year.  It was so hard for me to decide.  I thought about rotating through ALL of the colors, but I wasn’t sure I’d like that too much.  I might try it eventually.  I sometimes get bored easily.  However, since I decorate my planner, I really don’t worry much about most of the color.

So, this weekend, my project is to ink and place planner stickers on the important monthly dates on what is due.  I will then add these to my assignment lists, both my master list and my individual class lists in order to keep track.  From there, I will keep a project planner in order to keep track of progress on each major assignment and exam.  As I do this I will keep track and post the photos on instagram if you are curious.  Follow me @coffeeconfessor to see more!

FINALLY!

Thumb Nail Academic CalendarSorry about the delay while I get things straightened out on the internet front.  I have been working on a lot of projects since I am without internet at the moment. We all know school is around the corner or has already started in some cases.  I know everyone is always excited to get new planners (including me).  I have been working on this particular planner for six months now and I think I have it the way I like it.  It is a vertical weekly two-page layout with a monthly two-page layout as well that lasts the academic calendar year (August-July).  The vertical is divided into morning, afternoon, and evening.  There is a chronodex at the bottom to create a glance schedule.  There is plenty of space for writing as well as decorating!!!!  The boxes are roughly Erin CondrenStudent Planner sized.  I am currently working on one that is Happy Planner sized in case you have one.  There are also thumbnail calendars for the month at the start of each week.  The exciting thing???  I made it in seven colors.  I have the standard grey, but it also comes in peach, pink, blue, green, lavender, and aqua!  Beyond this, I have supplemental inserts with assignment master lists, professor contacts, and class schedule.  I also have a thumbnail calendar page in each color in case you need extras.  In the next few weeks I will be Class Information Supplementuploading more things that go with these planners such as meal planning supplements, doodle and brain dumping pages, blog planning, expense trackers, habit trackers, etc.  (Like I said, down time with no internet.)  Anyway I hope you enjoy these freebies and please feel free to give me any feedback on how this planner is working for you, what you want to see, what changes would make it better.  I am trying to create the ultimate student planner.  Something more than what is out there.  So feedback is CRUCIAL!  In other words, you are all my test subjects.  As always, if you want to share these, please link to my page.  These are for personal use only.
