With all of that I plan on talking about how I manage my time, organizing school work, and etc. Being organized and prepared for classes are just one success you can have. I have noticed things that have worked for me and things that haven't worked for me with being successful in managing my time with school work and keeping up on everything I need to get done that week. To start off I am going to tell you some essential items I use to keep myself prepared for the week.
#1: Use a PLANNER!! I use a Lilly Pulitzer planner and I love it. I write down all my assignments for my classes as well as sorority events I have coming up throughout the semester. First thing I do when I find out my classes is I print out each syllabus for my classes. I take out my planner and write down EVERYTHING. I feel this has really helped me stay focused on what tasks I need to get done during the week and I know what assignments are due on certain days. Here is a picture of my Lilly Pulitzer planner!!!
#3: I love to use colorful pens and markers. They make looking at my notes or planner a little more enjoyable. I think I also just have a love for pens :) I have an assortment of pens and markers. In this picture below I also have post-its because I mark all my readings I do for my classes with these. They come in handy!
#5: Notebooks! I am an organizing junkie so when I spotted these notebooks at Wal-Mart I knew I had to get them! They are perfect for me and they let me put my syllabus right in the front so I know what I am doing in class that week. They also have a pocket inside for any additional papers I need handy. I will continue to use and buy these notebooks, because they have been the best ones I've used since being in school.
Okay so you got your essential items now its time to tell you how I work out my busy schedule. I use my planner everyday of the week to make sure I am on the right track. My to-do lists allows me to keep up on the assignments I have due and when. On every Sunday I bring out my planner and I write down all the events (normally sorority stuff) that are going on that week. I look to see what tests, readings, assignments, and papers I have for that week and I start a new to-do list for the week. I post a to-do list in my planner & one up on my bulletin board so I am constantly reminded of my school work. This system has really been working for me. I have been studying a lot harder because I am more aware of what my assignments are because of this method I'm using. Feel free to use this technique :) and please comment below if you enjoyed this post or even have a way of staying organized with a busy schedule of your own and how you do it!
