Anyway, I wanted to blog about my planner that I got for school. I had one in freshman year, but in sophmore year I had just a cheap little $1 notebook that I got from Target. At first, it seemed like I wasn't getting much homework to actually write down, so I stopped using it. By the middle of the year, I really regretted it. So, for junior year, I've decided that I MUST have a planner.
The brand is Blue-Sky and I got it at Office Depot for about $9-$10. They had cheaper ones for about $5, but they didn't look like that they would last even a semester. So, I chose this one:
When I got it, there was a sticker on it that I peeled off. It just had the barcode and what was in it. But, then it was plain, so I took a Sharpie and drew a rose.
There is also a little contact section to put adresses and phone numbers. I like that because then if somebody gives me their number, I'll only have to ask for it once.
The planner also has a space to put my personal information, but I already filled it out. So, for my personal saftey, I won't put a picture of that up. But, it's there.
The months are tabbed, too.
For each month, there is a calendar page for the entire month, then a weekly one.
Finally, there is also a U.S. map of all the states, time zones, and capitals. I will be taking U.S. History this year, so it might be helpful.
I REALLY reccomend getting a planner because it helps you organize things and not forget any homework assignments. This year, as soon as I get an imortant date that I need to remember, I'll write it down. That's my resolution.
