This semester, I'm taking more classes than I've ever taken (who said 2nd semester seniors had it easy?!), working 3 days a week at my internship, and job-hunting. My week is filled to the brim, and if I don't organize it well, I'm completely overwhelmed. I keep sane by writing to-do lists for everything! Everyone has a different writing method for their to-do lists, but today I thought I'd show y'all how I organize/write my lists.
I use my Lilly planner to write my to-do lists. I'll write reminders at the bottom of each day about what is coming up that week (like a paper or a quiz), until the day it's actually due, to remind myself of what I need to do. I also write out what my internship duties are at the beginning of the week, then organize them by day.
I write to-do lists to help me remember smaller tasks I need to do each day. I have really bad short-term memory, so I need to write everything down to remember it.
When I'm really in a time crunch or have a lot of work to do in one nigh, then I write out an hourly to-do list. I know I don't have time to waste, so this helps me stay on track and avoid Tweeting, Instagramming, and Facebooking.
Do you use to-do lists? Any tips? Have a fabulous day, y'all!
