“You should bring something into the world that wasn’t in the world before. It doesn’t matter what that is. It doesn’t matter if it’s a table or a film or gardening — everyone should create. You should do something, then sit back and say, “I did that.”
In 1990, physician Frank Meshberger published a paper in the Journal of the American Medical Association deciphering Michelangelo’s imagery with the stunning recognition that the depiction in ‘God Creating Adam’ in the central panel on the ceiling was a perfect anatomical illustration of the human brain in cross section.
At the age of 17 he began dissecting corpses from the church graveyard. Between the years 1508 and 1512 he painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome. Michelangelo Buonarroti— known by his first name the world over as the singular artistic genius, sculptor and architect—was also an anatomist, a secret he concealed by destroying almost all of his anatomical sketches and notes.
I’ve just discovered the Studyblr community. I’ve read lots of posts saying that you should use a planner, and since I LOVE planners, I thought that we should go a little bit deeper on this topic.
1. Bullet Journal
Bullet Journal is not a type of planner that
you can buy, but a system to keep organized. First, you have to buy a
notebook. Then, you’ll need to number all the pages and create an index.
Finally, you’ll be able to create daily to-do lists using a complex
Having to create an index, number all the pages… and basically creating a planner from scratch can be a waste of time.
Even though you have a monthly calendar, you can’t really asign tasks in advanced.
You can’t predict how long a to-do list will be so you will end up with blank pages and crammed tasks in other pages.
Chronodex is a graphic time
managing system created by Patrick Ng. It consists on that circle
diagram which works as a clock. You can print it out and stick it to any
kind of notebook or planner and use it as a way to put up your daily
works like a funnel: Top section for long lists (categorize tasks and
activities), middle section for your daily activity plan (prioritize
what need more attention from the top section) and lower section works
like an appointment book (schedule).
This system can actually be used in other kinds of planners.
One week per two-page spread.
Great for long-term tasks (helps you divide the work).
They can imprint your name in gold.
Elegant and formal.
May be too sober.
5. Life Mapping System
DIYfish (its creator)
says: “Life Mapping is a kind of color coding, time-managing, journal
writing method that can help you record and organize your life without
hustle.” It works pretty much like any other binder planner but with a
twist on it. Every page has a color index on its margin that helps you
search and locate important notes.
This system helps you to keep your notes organized in the long-term.
You have to buy a binder and inserts.
6. Midori Traveler’s notebook
How to describe
it? It is a piece of leather, with a elastic band around it to keep the
journal closed and another one on the spine, so that you can attach
refills. It is a traveler notebook… for people who… travel. But
well, the journey from home to work and from work to home counts as
traveling as well.
There are thousands of accesories for your filofax.
You can get creative.
You have to buy inserts (that’s not necesary a disadvantage).
It can get really huge.
If you want to add your own inserts, you have to punch the holes by hand (because of the six holes).
planners are mainly appealing to creative people since you have one
page per day to record what you plan to do or what you have done. Every
year, the design of Hobonichi is “refined and updated to reflect the
demands of users”, as they say on ther website.
I use a regular week-view planner. This is how I color code and stuff:
I (and probably the rest of the planet) write down my homework on the same day the teacher set it. I use a blue pen to write it and a red pen to cross it down when it is done. That way, done and undone work jump out at you.
➯ When I put something off:
I cross it down with my blue pen
and write it again on the day I plan to do it. That way I know that
didn’t do it that first day but it doesn’t simply look undone.
➯ Long-term chores:
(Such as essays or things that require a few days to be done.) I use the same method. For example: Today
it’s Monday and the teacher says “You have to do a research paper about
the Parthenon for next week”. I write on my planner (under Monday) “Parthenon essay”. When I get home, I decide that I’m going to do it between Wednesday and Friday, so I cross “Parthenon essay” with blue ink and write it again under the days that I plan to do it.
I write the exam on the actual day of the exam and then I highlight it so it is 100% visible when I get to a new page. Having a calendar on your wall with all the exams and deadlines is also essential. By the way, it is so relieving to cross off days on the calendar!
I write deadlines the same way I write exam dates. However, I highlight them using a different color so it is easy to tell them apart from exams.
Such as details for an essay, what’s covered in an exam, etc. I use the note pages at the end of the planner.

“The absolute truth appears in your drawing when you have no chance to change it,” says Moscow-based Instagrammer Anna Rastorgueva (@sally_mao), who creates an exquisite daily diary using only felt-tip markers. She takes inspiration from the detailed illustrations of botany and zoology books, a lifelong love of hers. “When I read ‘Brehm’s Life of Animals,’ I dreamed of meeting all the heroes from the pages of his book,” she explains. Anna draws anywhere, whether standing among thousands of people at a concert or even at a nude beach. For her, drawing is her personal space. “When I draw, I can dive deep into the moment and emotions. As Salvador Dalí said, ‘Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad.’”
Recently I’ve seen the upstart of a post that is trying to create a more accurate tagging system for the TW fandom, so I said to myself: the Supernatural Fandom needs one, too!We have truly amazing artists who create daily awesome content for every spn lover and they (every single one of us, really) deserve an accurate system. I’m about to quote the creator of the TW post now because I really agree with her: by making this post I’m hoping to raise awareness for these specific character tags so we can all more easily find stuff without having to sift through random posts. If you’re a fanartist, fanauthor, graphic designer, gifmaker – basically anyone creating original content – I hope you consider using these tags when you post your work, because I, and others I’m sure, would love to be able to see the awesome stuff this fandom makes every day much more easily.
As always, the all-inclusive primary tags will be #spnedit and #spngif and these are always active. Plus: your favorite character/ship isn’t here? Just create the tag using the same logic and message me for anything!
Is there any update on this subject? There is! We are successfully organizing the Spn tagging system and you can find new updates here.
I was born in Seoul in 1980, now live and work in Seoul. I studied oriental painting which is a study on the traditional East Asian painting. I’ve been drawing Moonassi series since university. The series is my life-time project. There is no specific background story or a theory about the drawing. Each drawing is created based on my daily thoughts and feelings. I draw to meditate on myself and others, and to be able to see the whole story of the series in the end.
I believe the most difficult situation you can be ever be faced with is deciding whether you should just move on or hold on a little tighter. Move on, and maybe you’ll lose a chance at the best thing that could have ever happened, or hold on, and have the possibility of one day being the biggest disaster ever created.
Seoul, South Korea based artist Daehuyn Kim, aka “Moonassi”,
started his black and white drawing series in 2008 and has no
intentions of stopping. Moonassi’s “life-time project”, he calls it,
reads like a diary. “Each drawing is created based on my daily thoughts
and feelings. I draw to meditate on myself and others, to be able to see
the whole story of the series in the end,” he says. The name “Moonassi”
roughly translates as “there is no such thing as me”, referring to a
certain emptiness or void, as in someone with no identity. Exploring
identity, or at least his own, is a recurring theme throughout
Moonassi’s drawings and other works which span woodblock printing,
sculpture and new media.
