The semester has finally begun! Coming off of a 3+ month summer vacation, students are currently hitting their peak motivation level for the entire school year. Everyone is determined to get the grades they want through time management and organization. Usually, this intended success begins with buying a planner, which helps college bookstores make A LOT of money off our ambitions for the year.

Here are the stages of buying a planner that nearly everyone goes through at one point in time.

1. New year, new me! I am going to change my ways for the better this semester.

2. I'm going to manage my time better and devote more time to my studies.

3. Why don't I buy a planner? This will help me plan my week and stay organized.

4. There are so many options! Do I want a pocket-sized planner or a full-sized desk calendar?

5. Do I want a spiral or bound planner?

6. The cover will set the mood for the year. Do I want a sleek, classic solid color? Or a fun pattern?

7. The bookstore wants HOW MUCH for these bound pieces of paper that will be stained in coffee tomorrow?! I need to take out more student loans to buy a planner!

8. Maybe I should just use Google Calendar. It is free, after all.

9. Whatever, I'll just buy it.

10. I'll categorize everything by color! Everything for my major classes will be written in red, work will be in blue...

11. Wow, I never realized how much I had to do until I started writing it all down.

12. I don't need to write everything, just due dates and important events.

13. Nah I won't write that down. I think I'll remember it.

14. I can't believe I wasted $30 on a planner I used for a week.

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.
