Anyone who knows me knows that I have my planner with me. Always.

For me, my planner isn't just pages stuck together with a spiral binding. It's my life. Everything I do each day is written in my planner, and I'm not gonna lie, my planner is pretty colorful.

By this point in my life, my planner has become an extension of me as a person.

Not only do I use my planner to keep track of my classwork, but also stuff going on in my personal life. It's basically my life in book form.

Here are a few reasons you should have a planner in your life.

1. There are some REALLY cute planners out there!

Being able to write everything down helps you visualize what you have to do, and it can even help you figure out the most effective way to get it done! And taking notes from Leslie Knope, you can color code your planner to help you separate everything you have going on.

Side note -- it can also be a fun way to procrastinate. Planner decorating is an art form that few have mastered, but many hope to one day achieve.

3. It can prevent this from happening in your life.

Let's get real. We all have those days, and sometimes we can't avoid them. But other times, we can. Since I've started using my planner, I've noticed I've had significantly less stress-induced meltdowns. Funnily enough, I don't associate my planner with stress, because I love mine so much. It's a safe place for me to write down things to accomplish, and know that at the end of the week, each item will have a red line through it.

Bonus: You can always go back a few days and write things you've already done just to cross them off your list.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

1510
msra.org

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

4836
God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
