My planner here.
In my new planner, conveniently, everything seemed to be separated into four boxes for each day. I decided in the top box I would put the events I had that day (classes, sorority events, tutoring sessions, workout classes… Anything along those lines). In the next two boxes I put homework, and in the last box I put what was due that day, whether it be homework, paperwork, etc. There is a notes section for each week, which I also decided to utilize. In the top 2-3 boxes I wrote up meal plans for the week, and for the fourth box I put a schedule of my blog posts going live.
And if anything changed?
Which, spoiler alert: it did. Hello, life is chaos! I rewrote it on a sticky note and placed it over the previous box. If the change was minor I would either cross it off or white it out and change it. Not too difficult, but it keeps things clean!
I do have a color coding system, because I really am that obsessed with the inner workings of my agenda. I used like to color code my classes, as well as my activities. For example my Graphic Communications class/lab times, assignments, and due dates are all written in purple. And my sorority events are all written in red. Football games or other school affiliated activities are written in orange, and anything blog related is written in pink (my fave color of course!). I am personally such a visual person that color coding genuinely helps me to organize my planner. If you don’t need it, or don’t like it, don’t spend the time on it!
Fun doodles and stickers around your planner also keeps things light and fun. Remember, life is supposed to be planned only to an extent! But if you absolutely can’t stop planning, simply plan for a little bit of room for error because its bound to happen. I hope this post was helpful!
