We just really like planning.

15 Things All #PlannerNerds Feel

To be completely honest, I thought I was the only person that loved planners. Growing up, I would go crazy buying planners for school. I was obsessed with planning out what i'd do on what day and making my weeks organized. Eventually, as my planner-addiction continued, I discovered an online community of people who feel the same way. This article goes out to you, my planner nerds! Here are some things we all feel at some point in our planner-addicted lives.

1. Erin Condren is bae.

I had no clue what Erin Condren was until I started watching Elle Fowler's videos (she also has a sticker shop, go check her out here). The LifePlanners actually changed the way I plan my weeks. They are completely customizable when it comes to covers, layout (veritcal, horizontal or hourly), color themes and coils. Not only did they change the planning game, but they are one of the most popular planners to have as a planning addict.

2. Sunday = Planner Day.

It's the universal day to plan out your week and put on your stickers! Don't ask questions!

3. Going to the craft store? Perfect time to stack up on washi tape and stickers.

We all know how obsessed we are with washi tape. And they always have the best deals at craft stores!

4. Did someone say stickers? Etsy, take my money.

Etsy shops have the best stickers for your planner, at some decent prices. You can find themed stickers for each occasion that perfectly fit the boxes in your Erin Condren.

5. Yes, there's a difference between my main planner and traveling planner.

I don't usually carry my LifePlanner around because it's larger and bulkier. Of course I take a smaller planner with me! I personally love Ban.do's planners to travel, especially when it comes to marking down college assignments, due dates and exams.

6. Stradler pens became the love of your life after how well they write on stickers.

Best pens for glossy stickers, enough said.

7. You've printed every free-printable you can possibly find online.

Sometimes we can't always pay for stickers, so why not take advantage of the free printables online?! Just buy some sticker paper and you're all set!

8. You have a planner folder/organizer for all things planner related.

I keep a box filled with all my printables and store bought stickers. Oops!

9. You buy pretty paper clips bookmarks and glitter tape to specifically glam out your planner.

#Guilty. I can't help it, they're adorable!

10. There's always a theme.

Everyone has a theme when it comes to their planner. Mine is pretty basic; I have a to do layout, a big today square and a "little things" section where I list TV shows and what I had for dinner.

11. If you're a college student, you definitely love your planner.

It won't only keep you organized, but your exams won't sneak up on you this time!

12. What about fitness planners? Best things ever!

I love keeping track of my workouts, meals, calories and weight. It has me look at my progress in a bigger perspective and keeps me motivated to work hard.

13. Need inspiration? You're planner pinterest board has it all.

Seriously, google life planner stickers on Pinterest and you'll have all the ideas.

14. Can we just make another point about how awesome Esty shops are for planners?!

15. It's more than just keeping yourself organized; it's therapeutic.

It's relaxing putting down the stickers, checking off your to-dos and and planning your week. And its a cool idea to keep tack of what you do on what days. Someday, you'll be able to look back on a whole year of your life, and that in itself makes me want to do it more.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

About a year ago, I began my own fitness journey. Growing up, I had played soccer and kept busy, but after an injury cut my soccer career short I suddenly became very inactive.

Getting started is never easy, and setting up for success is the best plan of action to assist anyone in your life who is thinking about starting their own journey. These are a few items you can gift for the fitness rookie in your life:

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

The beaches are starting to open up. At least in Cape Cod, where my family and I were able to vacation this week. Near our house, we have a bit of a private beach, which is great.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.
