OH MY GOD DIY PLANNERS

So, if you're around me for even a second of a day, you know that I love love love to plan my life. I feel such a sense of accomplishment when I write crap down. I don't know why. It helps me remember and I just love it!

Being a full-time student (who is, may I add, about to graduate!!), working a job that entails A LOT of different things AND running a blog, you better believe I need to plan my life! I use Google Calendar, random notebooks for blog ideas and I use a Moleskin turned homemade planner. :) My planner isn't that classy, but it works.. I guess. After seeing the posts that I'm about to link you to, though, I kind of want to switch it up. I want everything to be in one place, I don't want to have to find which notebook to pull out!

But lets step back. Why is this on here? Why does Cortnie have a craft day, you ask? BECAUSE! 1) It's stinkin' cute. 2) I've overheard many a conversation about how feminists are mean, old, hairy bitches and don't like cute things, so 3) I'm proving those crazies wrong! So, lets begin.

Here's my planner. I took a Moleskin Sketchbook and basically wrote out the days. That's it. I told you, nothin' fancy. I love the Moleskins because of the cute little bookmark! I don't have monthly days, bummer, and I also couldn't go through the whole year because, well, there weren't enough pages. I do have pages devoted to my blog, but I'd like to have more, so I don't have to have a separate notebook. Duh. So, why don't I like it anymore?



THAT'S WHY.
  • It's messy. It's ugly. I didn't take much time to devote to my little lady and I regret it.
  • It's not organized. If the whole point of a planner is to be organized, then I failed.
  • I don't have monthly pages!
  • I don't have enough space to blab about shit!
  • I couldn't go through the year.
  • Help?
So, I searched for new ideas! I found this AMAZING blogger, Kyla Roma.. who I may or may not suddenly have a hugemongous crush on. 

This one is a better version of my idea. It's so stinkin' cute. Oh my god. Oh my god. Nerdy orgasm.


And if I'm feelin' really frisky, I'd LOVE to try this one! Oh my god. It looks like a little slice of heaven, doesn't it?


I'm in heaven. I want to try these so BADLY. Who wants to craft with me sometime soon
But before I start, what do I need from a planner? 
  • School
  • Work
  • Blog
  • Goals
  • Dreams
  • Diary Section? (YES I LOVE TO WRITE THINGS)

SO, I'm doing it! You know how much better you feel when you're organized? That's not just me, is it?

What are your organizing ideas, ya'll?

xoxo
CORTnie
