FRIDAY AFTERNOONS:This term, my weekly supervisions are on a Friday at 1pm. This means that my week revolves around one hour (or usually two) of intense one-on-one contact time with my supervisor. After a supervision my brain always hurts so much, and I usually feel mentally drained but also weirdly energetic (?). I usually go to the gym straight after supervisions to release energy, but I’ve also found that the time following a supervision is great for organising the week to come. I had a brand new Moleskine delivered today (yay!), so I spent time drawing out a timetable for next week & I’m gradually filling it in. My week may seem quite empty at the moment, but I usually fill each day in as I go through the week, informed with an overall view of what I need to get done by the end of the week. It may seem unorganised to do this, but my degree is quite self-motivated with hardly any contact time or relevant lectures, so organising my days as I go along works for me. Also: some things here happen very last minute, and I wouldn’t like to tightly pack my schedule early on in the week only to have to change it later. I’m a bit of a perfectionist and would hate to scribble stuff out. But I can tell you something: most of that week from 8am-9pm will be filled in with red: WORK TIME. Thank goodness I love my degree. -Sarah by lindsay0

Hi everyone, hope you all had a lovely Christmas! Even though I had a 4 day long weekend, it felt like it went by way too quickly! Speaking of quickly, 2015 is just in a few days, so I thought I’d share with you some free printable to help you get organized for the new year! As most of you know, I’m obsessed with planners and have been using my gold Kikki K planner to help me stay on top of everything. For me nothing works as well as writing out my tasks the old school way, and I love being able by ashers

Have you been determined to meal plan, done it for a week or two, and then fallen back into old habits of last minute decisions or fast food? Me too.
