The Simple Pleasures Of Being An Over Planner

Everything that is so oddly satisfying about being a planner.

The Simple Pleasures Of Being An Over Planner

Yes, I am a planner. I enjoy knowing what I will be doing 20 minutes from now, and where I will be 30 years from now. If you feel like any/all of these next comments contribute to what is oddly satisfying to you, then you should share this article with your friends and family because you are as much as a planner as I am.

1. I already know what my wedding will be like; all I’m missing is the groom.

2. My hobbies include Pinterest-ing my future home and organizing each of the imaginary rooms of that house.

3. I have at least 30 notes on my phone with all of the things that I am currently planning. These include but are not limited to: Names for future pets, Names of my future children (obviously categorized by boy or girl), places I want to travel to (divided by whether or not I have been there before or not), amongst others.

4. My favorite app on my phone is Reminders because it tells me what I should be doing right now, what should already be done and what I will be doing in every second of my life.

5. I prefer to plan about what and when I should study than actually studying.

6. My closet has a weird system that only I understand and if someone tries to mess with it, I hyperventilate until I can get it back to the way I like it.

7. I find an odd satisfaction when I can see every end of my desk because everything is organized and put where it should be.

8. I have a folder for every part of my life that is so full with paper and information that I have to clip together so that it doesn’t fall apart.

9. When people tell me: “You probably won’t need to print this because you can find it online whenever you want,” I don’t understand what they mean because I can’t put sticky notes on your online power points, lady!

10. Sometimes I don’t get stuff done in time because I was too busy planning about them… And then I have to re-plan to make up for everything that needs to get done.

11. Planning for this article, I did about 3 preliminary lists just preparing to write it in the future.

12. I have a list of recipes that I will never actually make but that I have looked up at least three times already.

13. My family is the same way. We know exactly who’s house we are going to be spending each holiday, what are we cooking, and what will be the proper etiquette of dress and decorations for each.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
