Hi friends. So it’s the middle of September now. I know that on the west coast some schools are just starting up, but for everyone over here in the midwest…it’s slump time. This is what I call the mood you fall in to about a month into the school year. You’re in the groove of things, you’ve figured out you schedule and the newness has worn off. You’re lacking motivation and you frickin hate going to class, working, or basically anything that involved leaving your room. Am I the only one who feels this way? Don’t lie. I know you get this feeling too.

As you may or may not know, I am currently a college senior (cry). This means that in May…I’m gradumacating, gettin my diploma and going out into the big scary world. To be honest, I’m still fairly uncertain about what I want to do. I’m majoring in broadcast journalism and that gives me a wide array of career and schooling options for after I graduate.

Hi friends! So my favorite way to save time on cooking in college is to pick a recipe, make it on Sunday and eat it for lunch or dinner throughout the week. That way a meal every day is already taken care of, and I don’t end up eating junk food or snacking all day. I usually have something simple like toast or eggs for breakfast, so that only leaves one meal a day that I have to think about! This method saves me so much time throughout the week.

TEXTBOOKS ARE THE WORST!!! People. I once had to buy a $400 textbook for an economics class. And guess what? I BARELY USED IT. The college textbook industry is a bunch of bull crap, lemme tell you. We already spend thousands of dollars to attend school, and textbooks add probably $1,000 to that cost every year.

It’s still back to school month, so I wanted to write about something that could help you peeps who are heading back to your college towns (or high schools!) soon, and there’s nothing I love more than organization (I am the list queen). So, today I thought I would share with you some tips I use to stay organized and on track during the school year, and I also wanted to talk about my favorite planner that I have been using recently. Yay!
