I cannot keep my whole life organised, sometimes life gets you and hits you with something spontaneous. But the stuff I can control, I tend to plan. Why? because I don’t really like spontaneous things to happen. Like a pop quiz, a spontaneous outing, I like to know what’s happening and when. To know these things I have two books.
I got this planner from Typo. I use this for everything but school work or school things. I really like the gold ‘2017’ and the blue watercolour background.
So to organise my planner I categorise things into two sections, events and tasks. For events, before I write done the event I draw a circle. And for tasks, I do the same but instead of a circle I draw a square, this is so I can draw a cross in the square once the task is done at or a line straight through to say that the task is cancelled.
My second book is, of course, my school planner. This is just a random lined notebook I found in my house I think it’s a good size (18.5 x 24.5cm) because I can fit all the info I need into it but It isn’t too big and bulky. On the front I have hot glued some postage stamps on to give it a bit of character.
This is how I work it. Each month I will do a monthly outlook, where I can write in all the assignments I have that month, then I have a page to a week where I can put in all my homework for that week and what I learnt in classes. Writing done what I learnt each week, I think, is really helpful when exams come round because then you know what you need to study and it’s easy to find.
So those are the two books I use to organise and plan, but ultimately I’m never going to know anything I just need to rely on my Heavenly Father to look after me and plan my life story.
Next year I think I will try a bullet journal and put my school work in with my personal events and then I will only have one book.
