I Made a Thing!

Sorry everyone for the lack of posts.  I have been so busy with school!!  It’s 5 weeks until the end of the semester.  Between exams, homework, papers, etc. there has been little time for me to write anything.  My time is spent doing calculus and physics.  I don’t like to leave you all hanging!!  I do think about you guys.  Even when I don’t post.  I always feel bad.

Elec
tions are over.  If you are upset, I understand.  If you are scared, I understand.  If you need someone to talk to, I’m around.  Feel free to drop me a comment or a tweet.

So, what I have been doing recently in what bits of free time I have had, is making a new 2017 planner to upload!  It is finally finished.  If you want a different color, let me know so I can add them.  These planners are full 12 month, Monday start planners with SpiralDex at the bottom instead of my regular Chronodex.  The vertical two page-per-week layouts have boxes that are similar to the size of Erin Chondren Planners.  So, if you glam/scrap plan, you can find stuff that fits. new-2017-vertical-calendar

I also have managed to finally get a bubble map template created so if anyone has professors that jump around from topic to topic, it can be a great hbubble-note-pictureelp.  It is only bubbles, you connect lines yourself, so you can have as many or as few tangents as you want.

As always, if you want to share my stuff, please link your friends to my page as opposed to just sending them the file.  Don’t try to pass my stuff off as your own.  Yadda yadda yadda.  You know the fine print drill.

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!
