Preparing for Next School Year + New “To-Do” App

Once the summer vacation starts, it’s so tough to think about school. I know I definitely don’t miss the times in high school when we got assignments for fall and they were hovering in my head like an enormous debt. What’s worse, putting that brain to work after a long vacation is no easy task. There are a few simple things I’ve been doing for the last couple of summers that really helped me stay toned for work and ready for school in the fall. The key is to do them throughout the summer vacation, not a week before school begins. 1. Wake Up Earlier This will make waking up for school easier once it starts and will give you more time throughout the day to explore and be productive! I don’t know how early “early” is for you guys, but for me 10 a.m. is still pretty early in the day. If you think about it though, the average adult needs about 8 hours of sleep. So if you get yourself used to waking up slightly earlier …

Chronodex planner

I’ve received quite a few messages asking about the Chronodex Planner system (designed by Patrick Ng), so I decided to write a few sentences about it. Basically, it’s a very compact and organized way to put all your daily tasks in one little circle, as well as a daily opportunity to color something (stay inside the lines!). All you do is get a Chronodex Template (I used this one), come up with a to-do list, color in specific sections on the calendar and go be productive. You can tweak the system according to your needs, of course. Here are some photos: Chronodex templates can be found with a simple google search and printed out for your convenience.  For reference and a little inspiration, here are some helpful links: Home page for Chronodex Planners: although it looks a little outdated, the template is always the same and can be used any day Facebook Page Make it a stamp!  Stamp No. 2 Chronodex Group on Flickr What types of planners do you guys use? I’d love to …

Shopping for Planners Online

Trying to figure out the situation with planners right now, so here’s a list of some nice ones I’ve found online: 1. Whitney English Planner Very minimalistic, elegant and practical. I’ve seen it being used at my university, and the reviews are wonderful! 2. Filofax A great little system that allows you to keep everything you need in one place. A bit on the higher end, however, but people use it for years. You can refill with whatever sheets you need (monthly/weekly/daily/to-do’s/meals, notes, etc.), use a ton of sticky notes, stickers, etc. The whole website is magical. Check out also: Filofaxomania, Filofax, Filofax & Planners on Pinterest 3. Moleskin A planner and notebook classic. Would love to get one at one point. Moleskine is also used in the Bullet Journal system 4. Papyrus Gorgeous vintage-style planners and paper supplies. Awesome quality and also available in stores! 5. Amy Ruth Designs Very pretty planners, notebooks, phone cases etc. 6. Erin Condren’s Life Planners Great planners! Customizable, also on the higher end, but come with tons of accessories …

How to Make a Study Plan

*My fall quarter starts on September 24th. Professors started posting textbook information, test information, syllabus, etc. on the course websites a couple days, so I thought it would be a good idea to prepare for each class before it starts * Once you have your textbooks, a little bit of information on the website, and the syllabus, start preparing your study plan for the quarter. 1. Read the course syllabus. Professors know exactly what they will be teaching, how big the workload will be, exam schedules, reading material, etc. Once you read the syllabus, you are already mentally prepared for the class, and it won’t seem as overwhelming on the first day. ** Important information to take away from the syllabus: – Homework load – Class schedule, test information – Retake and make up policy – Any class- specific information 2. Look up your professor on RateMyProfessors. By reading other students’ reviews, you can get a preview into what your classes will be like. It’s important not to believe every word you read there, simply because every student …

How I plan to Study

My freshman year of college didn’t go too well for several reasons. One, I had no idea what I was getting into: how the classes go, how to prepare for them, how to set a schedule, etc. Two, I didn’t know how to study. I tried so many different things, different techniques, took notes in various ways, made flashcards. But it turned out that jumping around like that only made it worse. Without having a steady, set way to prepare for each class, I couldn’t remember the information very well and ended up not doing too hot on the tests. So now I want to actually set some goals for myself. Maybe these will be helpful to you guys too! 1) In class: Always take notes, using 1 method: Cornell, Mapping, or Outline (on paper or on an iPad) Listen actively, connect new information to something I’ve already heard or know No mindless writing: take notes in my own words. This keeps your mind working during the lecture. 2) At home: ALWAYS read textbook material before class. …
