I love planners but can't stay dedicated and end up buying some for the aesthetic. Recently, I've researched digital planning and decided to give it a try, so far so good. You can create it in PowerPoint, like I did, or Keynotes, which is quite popular for Apple devices and download it as a PDF.

From here, make sure you use a program that can open PDFs. I use GoodNotes on my iPad, and my digital planner looks great! This is also a great app to use as a notebook.

1. It's digital.

Taylar Banks

It's 2020, phones and tablets can do pretty much anything. A lot of people are on their electronics all day, so why not add a fun planner to the mix and get yourself organized? Take it on the go on your smart device.

2. It works just like a planner.

You can create hyperlinks to go to certain pages, a cover, spiral binding, add stickers, fonts... anything really.

3. You may develop better organization skills.

I don't know about you, but I usually have a bunch of papers and random spots for notes or important dates. Don't get me wrong, you can have a physical planner and have it organized, but what if you drop an important paper or write something incorrectly? I get so frustrated when this happens.

If you're into the digital world, why not have a planner, too, so you'll always have it.

4. There's so many cute cheap ones you can buy.

Etsy is amazing when it comes to finding planners. You can get one for as little as $6 and a bunch of stickers... sometimes, for even less. When you buy it, the seller will send you a PDF file, and often times, they'll have some tips and stuff for you. There are so many different ones that I'm sure at least one will fit everyone's aesthetic!

5. You won't have a stacked collection of nice unused planners.

Taylar Banks

I love pretty planners, but I know not to buy them if I won't use them. No shade, but not all of us have that type of self control. It may not be the same, but you can have all the beautiful, colorful and unique planners

6. You can customize it!

Taylar Banks

Even though a lot of stuff is pre-made, you can draw, color, add stuff like stickers, highlight etc. It's just like a physical one! Make it as pretty, simple and unique as you want to!

7. Creating your own is time consuming but so much fun!

Month and Weeks

Taylar Banks

I started making one, and I'm OBSESSED. I'm not going to lie, I've spent an unhealthy amount of time creating one, but I know it's going to be worth it when I'm finished. If you're creative and love to learn how to do new things, love digital projects or just love making stuff, this option may be for you! Pre-made is great and all, but personally, I like to make things myself and make it exactly how I want it to look.

8. You won't lose it.

Taylar Banks

It's on your device! It's not going anywhere unless you delete it. You can save backups to all of your storage apps!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.
