Peek Inside My Erin Condren Planner

Are stickers and washi tape basically porn for you? You're in the right place.

Peek Inside My Erin Condren Planner

I'm officially a basic B. No, I haven't been guzzling Pumpkin Spice Lattes or breaking out my sorry-looking Ugg boots (I'm waiting for October like a god damn adult). No, I broke down and bought the Erin Condren planner. Similar to the Lilly planner but irresistibly more customizable, Erin Condren stationary is practically a basic B's calling card. Granted I had just been dumped, so it seemed like a fancy planner would magically whip my days of crying and eating mozzarella sticks in bed into organized world domination.

For the uninitiated or Instagramless, Erin Codren is a stationary empire. Their Instagram is full of motivational quotes, "She designed a life she loved" and almost pornographic sticker flat-lays. The message is clear. Owning boss stationary will make you a boss. You'll do your homework on time because it's so fun to write down assignments with multi colored pens. You'll never miss another dentist appointment because you have a little dentist sticker to remind you of your six month check up. Boys will text you back because you clearly have your life together and independent women are sexy. Total game changer.

These planners are also absurdly expensive. I had a $10 coupon and still paid $60 for one of their most basic versions. It also took about twice as long as the estimated shipping time. So, don't procrastinate like I did if you're getting it for school. But hey, at least it has my name on it?

You can pick from a variety of colors and sayings for the cover. I chose this one because, like any good sorority girl, I love pink.

Each month comes complete with its own motivational saying. Noticing a theme?

Ooooh so much color, I'm so excited to read my textbooks.

Never awkwardly forget a birthday again.

Is it worth it? I'm still single as a pringle and procrastinating on a paper that's due tomorrow. But my sticker collection is fire.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
