I finally did it. I broke down and bought a planner for the year. Normally I’d have had one already and would have everything (and I do mean everything) planned out, color coded, and just generally there for me when I need. This year I put it off because I didn’t really need it. Only had one job. No school. Wasn’t really picking up extra shifts. Well now that has changed. I just applied for another job that will hopefully be better for me (it is 3 12-hour days, no holidays, and every third weekend) but I’ll still stay part time and pick up shifts as needed at my current job. School starts here in two weeks and even though it is only one class at a time it would still be nice to be able to write out when classes start/end, when breaks are, and assignment dates. Plus here lately I’ve been picking up several shifts because I want/need the extra money and might as well before I get too far into school. Yet all of these things mean that I am very much so behind in my organizational ways.
My wall calendar works really well for keeping me on track for a month at a time. But that’s it. When I look at picking up shifts I need to know what else I might have going on. Or when friends want to schedule hang outs or events. Not to mention with my increased amount of trips I’ll be taking due to boyfriend seeing. Not to mention all the upcoming school assignments/projects I a about to receive, I am so unprepared. I haven’t done school in a very long time and I’m not sure I remember how to be organized for all of that good stuff. Yet I am going to try my darnedest! Basically I need to get my life in order and I’m hoping this is a step in the right direction for that.
This is a short rambley post today! But there will be a longer one coming later this week I promise! -Jel
