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.

10 types of planners

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 bullet code.

Learn more about Bullet Journal.


  • You can use the notebook that you prefer.
  • It is pretty meticulous and organized.


  • 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.

2. Chronodex

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 tasks.

Learn more about Chronodex.


  • It is better than a simple to-do list because you plan in advanced how much time you will spend doing each task.
  • It is visual and effective.
  • You can create a color code.
  • It can be used in an agenda or in a notebook.


  • You have to print a lot of chronodex circles or make it a stamp.
  • You may also need to print out a calendar. Is that even a drawback?

3. Spiraldex

Spiraldex is a Chronodex sequel, created by Kent from Oz. It works exactly as Chronodex but using a different design, which, from my point of view, is a lot more clear.

Read more about Spiraldex.

4. Planner Pad

Each page 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).

Read more about Planner Pads.


  • 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.

Read more about Life Mapping System.


  • 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.

See more about Traverler’s notebooks / buy.


  • Can add and change refills (so it is for life).
  • Not too big, not too small.
  • They promise that the paper is lightweight, thin and anti-transparency.
  • Elegant.


  • About 50€ (worth it, in my opinion, because of the good quality).

7. Filofax

Filofax is the “original personal organiser” but there are more brands that sell this kind of binder planner, such us Gillio or Smythson.

Go to Filofax Official Website.


  • It is for life.
  • You can add the inserts that are useful for you.
  • 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).

8. Hobonichi

Hobonichi 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.

Read more about Hobonichi.


  • Lay-flat binding.
  • There are A LOT of beautiful covers to choose.
  • You can get creative (and use watercolors!).
  • Includes one quote per two-page spread.
  • Their website seems extremely frank, reliable and neatly organized.


  • The book costs 2,700 yen (about 20€ / $22) and you’ll probably want to buy a cover too (At least, 20€ more).

9. Personal Planner

Personal Planner is a website in which you can design your own planner (from the cover to the inlay design) and they send it to you.

Read more about Personal Planner.


  • You can design pretty much everything.


  • The cheaper agenda costs $29.95.

10. My planner system

I use a regular week-view planner. This is how I color code and stuff:

  1. Daily homework:
    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.

  2. Exams:
    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!

  3. Deadlines:
    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.

  4. Other:
    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 Daily Diary of a Sketchbook Artist

To see more photos of Anna’s notebook sketches, follow @sally_mao on Instagram.

“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.’”


“The price of freedom is high, and it’s a price I’m willing to pay! If I’m the only one so be it. But I’m willing to bet I’m not.”


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.


The Amazing Graphic Art-“ Moonassi ” -Drawings of Daehyun Kim

Daehyun Kim

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.


Meditation connects you with your soul – and this connection gives you access to your intuition, your heartfelt desires, your integrity, and the inspiration to create a life you love.

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.
