Having A Planner Changed My Life

When your life is chaos, at least make it organized chaos.

Having A Planner Changed My Life
Miranda Myers

I don't know about y'all, but I am a busy little bee almost all the time. I have lots of meetings, homework assignments, exams to take, people to see, and work. I struggled super hard when I didn't have something to help organize my time in a way that is constructive for a long time. In high school, I never used a physical planner, and I started using one once I started college and my life was forever changed.

I bought a plum paper planner last summer, and Y'all. It is amazing, it was completely customizable and they also do monthly STICKER SUBSCRIPTIONS. I am HYPE about it because I am very pro-sticker for my planners. That's beside the point though, I basically have my entire life color-coded in my little 5 by 7 planner. I list out my class and work times, I list out my homework assignments in each class' respected color, I list out my meetings, put down when I go to church, and I also make sure to make my planner look fun with.... you guessed it! Stickers.

It helps me feel like my life is somehow put together in all its crazy glory. I try to keep organized because not having that sense of organization throws my life into complete and actual chaos. It took a while to figure out if I prefer hourly planners vs. a planner with lines that are up to me to fill out. I found that I didn't like hourly planners because my handwriting is large, and I prefer to have the space to write everything down on a single line as opposed to like... 5. I also found out that I liked adding stickers in because it makes my planner look more fun and less plain. This obviously isn't going to be how it is for everyone, but these are things that I have used that help me stay organized in this crazy thing called life. I constantly forget things so it's so nice having my planner and being able to see what I have to do and what I have to do to get those things done and out of the way.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
