The first tool of the trade is the planner. The most key point of the system. I make my own planners, it’s a cross between a bullet journal and a planner you can buy at any store. I was never happy with store bought planners, so I started making my own. Here you will see the cover, covered in stickers.
This here is the inside. This was this week. Each box is a class and in the box is the assignment that is due that day. I cross it off once I have done it. I also have meetings, and special occasions in here too, as well as due dates and things like that.
I use ToDo lists like crazy. I make one everyday and for the weekends. Here is my weekend todo list and it covers all the homework through Wednesday as well as my outlining schedule for Midterms and my bible reading schedule .
I use a binder per class, and a binder per project in Legal Research and Writing. (Not pictured) In each binder has a Syllabus, Notes, and Handouts tab. Civ Pro has a book tab so I don’t have to take that ginormous binder to class everyday and can only take the assignment reading. Pictured is my 4 class binders and all my books, well I forgot my Bluebook in the picture.
Pictured here is my pencil pouch and it’s contents. I take my pencil pouch to school every day and use it invert class. It’s contents are as follows.
- Pens (3 kinds, all gel)
- and Random extra pens for fun moods.
- Sticky notes
- Stick tabs
- White out
Finally, my backpack. The binders for what class depends on what classes I have that day. But the things pictured always stay in my backpack and go to and from school with me. Laptop usually goes as well, but I chooser to leave it out here.
- pencil pouch
- headphones in their pouch
- Unicorn shaped emergency kit (See it’s contents, Here)
- Fidget Spinner
