11 Undeniable Signs You Are Addicted To Planning And Fully Embrace It

I have a list for absolutely every aspect of my life. And I like it that way.

11 Undeniable Signs You Are Addicted To Planning And Fully Embrace It

I love planning. I am obsessed with researching, fun things to do, and places to go. I rarely go anywhere without my planner. Some people call this neurotic, but I just think I have found something I am good at that is free and fun to do. So back off, it's fine.

Over time, I have found that there are very few people who consider scheduling one's life a hobby. But the rare comrades I have come across all have these things in common with me:

1. Color coding is your life.

And you have your favorite note taking pens in every color. And a million highlighters.

2. Your family leaves vacation plans up to you because they know you're going to just re-plan everything anyway.

Example: My itinerary for five days in New York City. I visited the website of all 71 Michelin star restaurants in the city. Also, have alternative options according to the weather. The bound booklet is in progress. Please HMU with more suggestions so I can obsessively stalk every Instagram account in the city.

My family was impressed but also slightly horrified over how I spend my time.

3. Your planner makes sense to you and only you.

There is a method to my madness and looks like a perfectly curated masterpiece to me.

4. You have had your class schedule mapped out since freshman year.

You probably also find creating potential class schedules fun and exciting. Wow, writing this makes me realize maybe I should not be putting this down in words. I promise I am fun sometimes.

5. You are constantly putting outfits together in your mind for occasions weeks in advance.

I have been planning and replanning my Coachella outfits since January.

6. You make a list for everything.

The grocery store (organized by store departments), what you want to get done this week (organized by day and by priority level), family dinners (organized by who is bringing what), party planning (a timeline of what needs to be done by when and a guest list), and vacations (organized by outfit you will wear each day, where you are going to go each day, and what you are going to eat each day). Honestly, just thinking about lists is getting me amped.

And when someone says you're being excessive:

7. You find very few things more satisfying than checking something off of a to-do list.

So much so that sometimes you write down things you've already completed just so you can check it off.

8. You often get distracted from actual important things (i.e. homework) because you are too busy planning out where you're going to eat dinner when you go to LA in THREE WEEKS FROM NOW.

*Insert angel emoji*

9. You have a thousand different pages on the "Notes" app from the rare moments when your planner wasn't in hand but you had to keep planning.

There's the note for all the cities I want to go to in Europe in the fall, all the artists I want to see at Coachella, and all the coffee shops I want to go to in San Francisco (and I don't even have plans to go to SF anytime soon...).

The list goes on and on. HA... that was literal but also a pun.

10. You have a million screenshots on your phone of "Yelp" and "Instagram" pics of restaurants you want to go to.

11. People think you are absolutely insane.

And you're just like: :-)

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
