I’m a Social Media Director… Now what? Top 5 Tips to Crushing It.

I’ve come across a lot of people in their early twenties who say “I just don’t get social media” or “I’m not creative enough for this job” and it’s just getting ridiculous. Choosing to not understand social media in this day and age is like not knowing how to use Microsoft Office 10 years ago….

Bringing positivity back one Vision Board at a time

I think at some point in our life every person wanted to make a Vision Board. You know the ones with the cute magazine cutouts and outfits you adored, but then we sort of grew up and our idea of Vision Boards basically became our wall calendars with our work and school schedules, and that…

So you didn’t graduate college on time…

What does “on time” even mean? For those of us who took AP courses or concurrent enrollment in High School maybe you had a whole year or more of college written off (like my childhood neighbor). Or maybe you signed up for a degree that’s practically impossible to finish in four years — unless you…

How to Organize Your Erin Condren Life Planner for College

Ah, the start of a new semester. I can smell the freshly sharpened pencils and new notebooks from here. It’s a wonderful time of the year for us #PlannerGirls. We stalk Blackboard from the moment the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Day for the new Syllabus that will foreshadow the rest of the semester ahead….

New Year, Empty Notebooks

Like any well raised planner girl you know you have a box or drawer full of never opened notebooks that are just begging to be written in. I’ve decided that I’m going to try something a little different this year with one of my notebooks. As much as I love to have a multitude of notebooks,…

New Year’s Resolutions… Yay!

Now comes the time that we start to look back on all the crazy things we did all year that we want to either never do again or continue doing. Maybe you started doing hot yoga a few months ago and want to keep it going for 2016. Well first off… KUDOS TO YOU. It takes…

Back to School: Textbook Notes

I truly believe that the main reason many students don’t do the assigned readings they are given is because they find it difficult to comprehend everything they are reading. Reading a textbook and reading a novel are two completely different things. Novels allow you to almost zone out while you are reading and transport you into a…

Back To School: Quotes to Keep You Motivated

I’m HUGE on motivating quotes. Last Spring I put a new one at the top of each week in my planner and read it every time I opened my planner (which was a lot), and it always put my in the best frame of mind. Here’s my criteria for a solid quote: Has to be…

Back To School: New [School] Year Resolutions!

I have found that when I set real (attainable) goals for myself they actually happen, so why not get the habit out there! Setting goals for yourself is SUCH an important life long skill that everyone should do. I’m not talking about goals like “My goal this weekend is to clean the kitchen”, though that’s a…

Back To School Series!

The smell of overly priced textbooks, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and students crying over financial aid is in the air… Fall Semester is here! Fall is my favorite season by far. With football, crunchy leaves to step on, and scarves… Or maybe it’s just that I live in the perfect city for all those to be…
