★彡 jan. 2k17 bujo/planner spread 》。“I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. He taught me that if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.” ― Roald Dahl
its been a rather gloomy week, but i’m not complaining! it’s nice walking around campus without the sun burning my eyes. not a lot of assignments due this week but i do have a lot of midterms coming up this following week and the next after that! wish me luck! hope midterms and exams are treating you all well,,,and if not then i hope you survive 🙏🏻
i’ve just watched first episode of Legion and omg this is the best series i’ve ever seen
p.s i’ve done all the homework for tomorrow but I need to study history for the test // I literally hate history bc of its wars and wars and wars It seems like people are so dumb that the only thing they can actually do is argue
i can’t believe it’s already feburary, assignments are starting to pile up so wednesdays (i have no classes) and weekends are pretty hectic :< hoping you all are doing great so far!! if not then just breathe, take a break, and then push on through! ✌🏻
Start 2 days before the beginning of the next month . If you’re scrambling to organize everything you have to do for that month the day the month starts, you’re already behind.
PICK A LOCATION
It can be your planner, your bullet journal, or your bedroom/ dorm room wall. But pick a location where you will use your monthly plan, and see it often so that you’re acclimated with it.
What if the only monthly plan you made suffers severe water damage? Then you’re screwed for an entire month. I i m p l o r e you to please PLEASE make a copy of your plan. Everybody makes mistakes. Everybody has those days. Don’t let that DAY ruin your MONTH.
Start with your academics
Starting with academics not only keeps your priorities in line with where they should be, but it permits you to get all your ducks in a row for your classes. Find out when they are, if you don’t have the same courses every day, so you know what to be prepared for on which day
Follow up with assessments
Academics and assessments go hand in hand. Now that you know what day everything is for this month, and when you will be having your classes, find out what assignments you have in those classes. Knowing your assignments in advance allows for more preparation, and more consequent success
Prioritize those assessments!
If one assessment is your final grade for a mandatory course, and one assessment is a vocabulary quiz, the final grade assessment needs to be prioritized over the vocabulary quiz. Make sure you are highlighting the more important assessments, so you know their value!
Do the same with homework!!!
Homework is often seen as less important that assessments, but you still need to get it done. If you know in advance what assignments you will have, put those in!
Projects are the bane of every individual’s existence because you think you have all the time in the world to get it done, and then they due date sneaks up on you like the plague. Not only should you WRITE IN THAT DUE DATE but separate the tasks that you have to do for that assignment and assign it to yourself as homework.
Make your appointments!
Figure out what appointments you have that entire month, and preferably before the month starts. That way, you can ensure there are no conflicts and go in with ease.
Find out what obligations you have for your extracurriculars before they sneak up on you. No one wants to be out of compliance for an extracurricular, but you don’t want it to conflict with your life either.
Fit in some F U N.
Don’t make your monthly plan just boring this, and plain old that. Incorporate some hang-out sessions with friends, or a personal day (maybe two). Everyone needs that R & R.
DO IT AGAIN
Repeat it the next month. Soon, you’ll be in a habit of planning. I promise, this will make your life s o m u c h e a s i e r.
