Ok so most of the time people don’t understand why i write almost everything and took notes all the time and love planners and agenda so i made a few drawing to explain this :
This is how people who don’t need planners seems to work. Things are organized in their head they don’t write that…
Design*Sponge is definitely one of my favourite DIY/Home blogs out there, especially as all these 52 ideas are from their own blog!
Ooh I love the kitchen organisation section..
If you’re spending a lot of time at your desk, especially doing work or study, you need it to be clean and tidy. Being in a neat workspace can help boost concentration and help keep you less distracted. I know I just feel uneasy and out of place if everything around me is messy. So here are some great tips to get your desk organised.
Shelving is necessary, and if not you clearly don’t have much/enough stuff. You collect things in your years of life, even if not purposely. Whether you have a bunch of books, tourist knick knacks or a boatload of rubber ducks, shelving can do no wrong.
But it’s a large piece of furniture, in comes the corner shelves and bam that once pesky corner that you never really knew what to put in it is now beautifully styled and neatly organised. I love how they left a large space and hung a picture in there. Lovely.
My study area may not be the tidiest, but it’s functional, so that’s all that matters.
so like i have this unhealthy obsession with post-its…
I love love being organised. I really do. This list is a dream come true. I do have automatic notifications and such on my phone to remind me of things, but sometimes you need a handwritten todo list in front of you.
How I keep a progress Journal
I have wanted to share my progress journal with all of you,for a while now. But it was just about now that I actually bothered to take pictures of it.
I don’t even know if this is a progress journal, it is just some kind of everything journal. This journal contains four things: To-do lists, reading lists, schedules and updates.
Schedules. I don’t always have schedules, but i mainly make them a day before an exam, or an day when I know I have a lot to do. Sometimes I make them in the middle of the day when I know that I have been slacking off and then need to kill it for the rest of the day.
Entries. This works like diary entries, where I write down my thoughts and feelings and such, however this is just academic thoughts. Maybe if I had a great day at school, and really feel like that I had proven myself, then I come home and try to describe the feeling, and how it affected me.
To Do’s. This is the same concept as the post I made about post-its which you can read here http://studyspiration.tumblr.com/post/81785060962/how-i-manage-my-time-through-post-it-notes-with I just keep everything in here, so that once I get rid of the post-its I can still look back and have some kind of overview.
Reading list. I usually make these lists, when I have to read up for a test or an exam, just to have an overview over what I have read and what I still have to come.
This has really helped me get an overview of my exams, and really made me stress less. I hope that if you decide to make use of this system that it will benefit you as much as it has to me.
