How to Use a Planner to Get Organized!

We are all guilty of relying too heavily on technology. Learn how to go old school with a paper planner and enhance your organizational skills.
Plus, it's cute and fun.

1. Get Your Materials Together

I like to use different pens, stickers and wash-ii tape to get my planning on. All of these things are really low budget too. Most of the materials can be purchased at the Dollar Tree or WalMart. If you really want to get crazy there's an amazing dollar section at JoAnn's Fabrics with decorative wash-ii tape and card-stock to decorate with. The scrapbooking section of any craft store is a good place to start too.

HI-liters and other pens from Wal Mart
Wash-ii tape (a decorative tape originally from Japan) from Wal-Mart and Joann's

2. Pick a Color Scheme

Things can get messy and disorganized if you just start decorating willy-nilly (I learned this the hard way.) This is also helpful for when you're shopping. Pick things that go together. For this first plan with me card, I've chosen yellow and turquoise as the anchor colors. I've also coordinated the pens.

3. Lay the Foundation

Every good planner page has a good foundation. I always try to do wash-ii tape and bigger embellishments first, then go for the small things like the stickers. Also, pencil in important events you know are coming up. It makes things more organized and more artistic too. I'm a painter too and you never go in with small details first when you paint. Things aren't different with planning.

4. Decorate!

Now here's the fun part. Add sticky notes, sitckers, doodles or whatever! This is where your planning style will come through. I like to use stickers, and since my planner is relatively small I try to keep enough space for all of my events and assignments.
Here I used some stickers in coordinating colors, a couple of sticky notes and some stock-journal cut outs from Joann's. I like to keep my layouts as clean and linear as possible because I end up having a lot to do.
Here are some other examples of previously decorated pages:
These are examples of some of my previously decorated and filled out pages. They can get a little crazy, so I learned to be more sparse with my decorations as time progressed.

5. Plan Your Events

Simply write down what you need to do that week. This can include places you need to go, appointments, goals, quotes, whatever. Make it you!
Since this page is next week, it's not all the way filled in yet, but you get the idea.

6. Stick With It

Planning and decorating and whatever didn't stick with me for a long time. Just now, when my life is heading toward some semblance of routine, it is. Just keep filling things out. You will remember more and be more productive.
Aside from that, it's a good way to take time for yourself. I like to plan on Monday before I start my work. It's a fresh page, and a new beginning. Helps sort out my mind ya know? I'm no professional planner, but I'm figuring things out just like you.

And when the clutter piles high and anxiety mounts it's definitely time to make a change. Here are 5 easy ways to de-clutter your life. 1. Assess the situation: Do you have a lot of stuff, or are you just holding on to a few things? The first step to figuring out what you need to do with your clutter is looking at how much you have. Check the surfaces of your tables, counter tops and shelves. If you notice more than 10 things you can do without, it's time to de-clutter. 2. Remove All Trash: The easiest way to de-clutter is to get rid of all the garbage in your room / house. Garbage is clutter. It can build up. Go around and pick up everything that's ready to hit the landfill. After your first go-round you should look closer and see if there is anything else that's trash worthy, like papers, old files or broken objects you've been holding on to. 3. Clear your surfaces: The easiest way to de-clutter and really see a difference is to clear off all your surfaces. Go through your tables, dresser tops and counter tops. Try and consolidate things into containers or just clear them off completely. After you've cleared everything you can choose a few items to hang on to as subtle, minimal decoration. This will make everything feel cleaner. 4. Invest in some containers: Whether they're for make-up, kitchen utensils or office supplies, containers are a great way to de-clutter. I use them on my desk at work, in my apartment and my backpack. You can go to cheap places like Five Below, Daiso, or any Dollar store incarnate to buy the things. You don't have to break the bank here. There are also lots of incredible DIY's to make your containers more fun with paint, ribbon and more. Adding containers and boxes can help de-clutter and make everything look a lot more put together. 5. Color-Coordinate: After you've thrown away your garbage, de-cluttered your surfaces and contained the remaining objects you'd like to keep you can transform your space with color coordination. It makes everything look less cluttered, more cohesive and a lot cleaner. If you want a seriously minimal look go with subdued colors like whites and sepia tones. For an ultra-girly look pastel is a great palette. Primary colors kept to one or two with a neutral anchor can do wonders for masculine spaces. It's pretty much all in what you like. But the clutter will look a lot less daunting if it's in a single palette.

Why Tracking Your Progress Will Make You Hate Yourself Less
Self acceptance is nearly impossible. In our twenties it's hard to accept anything: change, graduating from college, moving to a new city, our bodies, our careers. In the fog where we facebook stalk our "more successful" friends and get down on ourselves for not being "put together", its easy to get caught up in the "I suck" mantra. No inspirational quote can help with whatever deep-seeded self-doubt we've developed over the years, but I've discovered something that can: Tracking your progress. Now this may sound a little bit ridiculous, considering the depth of what we're talking about, but planning and tracking my daily tasks, goals and challenges has changed my life. I bought a planner after envying countless women on Youtube who were way more put together than me. When I saw these people on the screen with their pastel colored worlds, shiny smiles and perfect make-up...I wanted to be like them. I didn't want to trade in my spontaneous edge and chaos for a square life filled with methodical primping and planning, but I did want to achieve more of a balance.When you spend so much time in a free-fall that it becomes a routine, you have to change. So I purchased the Create 365 Happy Planner, which, by name seems a little stupid, but has honestly changed the way I do everything. Planning things out has never been my strong-suit, but today I look down at an organized week full of goals, quotes, stickers and decorations and think, man...life is a lot easier than I have been making it. When I stare at a blank week in my little book of revelations, things seem a lot more hopeful. It displays the choices I can make to get better, or worse. I am tracking each move I make. I am being more conscious. Planning things out, and encouraging myself to think forward, but not ahead has brought me a sense of calm unlike any other. For once the chaos in my head melted away. The responsibility lands on my planner now. If I write it down and look at it every day, I can get it done. The point is, once I started actually using the God damn thing I've started to hate myself less. I plan every Sunday. It is my hour to sit and really think about the next week and what I want to accomplish. It's a time for reflection on what worked the week before, and what didn't. It's a time for me to look at myself and be like, "hey, are you doing the best you can, or are you fucking up a little bit?" And that answer comes out in the plan. Recently I've gotten serious about getting sober, at least for a little while. And each day I go without drinking is a little victory. In the book of revelations I have five tick marks. Once I reach a week I'll put down a little sticker with a smile. Tracking progress. No matter how banal and idiotic it may seem, is helping me get over my demons. It's helping me be a better person. Each day I eat healthy, I write down a little note like, "Good job not screwing up." and in my brain, that matters. It's a running chronicle of my life choices. It's helping me see light in things that I always avoided before like trying to better my mood or making healthier choices. Although the shiny people on Youtube have their own sets of problems, mine don't seem as daunting anymore. I can look at my little bible and smile, because my life is on track. And when I hop over the railings and stir up some trouble, I make a little note. "Do better next time." In my little book, there are no judgments, only observation. For someone slowly recovering from years of self-hatred that's a really good thing. Planners are just one way to hate yourself less, and they don't work for everyone. But I implore you, if you feel like nothing can help, that you're spinning out of control. Just buy one. It costs less than a bottle of booze and can give you more to look forward to than just a hangover. When I look back in my planner, I don't see a fuck up like I used to, I see progress. And that's all we can hope for as humans, to progress from our primitive selves to fully evolved versions. Some people decorate them, others just make lists. No matter what your style is, planners can increase productivity. They also make you look at yourself honestly. I've been tracking my progress in a serious and diligent way for the past two months, and I've never felt more in control. Although I'm not even close to accepting myself, my world has a bit more pastel in it. I'm closer to liking what I see, what I do and how I feel. My planner, my book of revelations has really helped with that. Because it's not just a stupid little book with decorations in it, it's a living chronicle. It's a letter to myself...with mistakes and victories all laid out in a grid. To me, it's beautiful. This little book doesn't change who I am, it doesn't detract from the danger and the fun I've always held close, it just organizes it. No matter how fun flailing in the darkness has been, it's a lot easier to stand tall, steady and sure that tomorrow if all else fails, I have my plan.

5 Types of Co-Workers You'll Meet in Your 20's
Work is something that becomes a real priority in your twenties. You start your career, and you meet all kinds of new people. Here are the 5 types of co-workers you'll meet in your 20's. 1. The "Super Serious" Co-Worker This person has little to no life outside of work. They're all about business, all the time. Whenever it gets a little loud in the office, expect some shooting glances from this overburdened character. Watch out too, because if you're higher up than them, they're probably gunning for your job. This person probably just graduated from college like you, but they take things way too far. Don't expect them to come to happy hour, they like to drink alone at home. 2. The Social Butterfly This person is the nemesis of the serious one. This person probably has a bunch of shit on their desk and doesn't respect others' personal space, but they're the life of the office. You can catch them talking to everyone all the time, and more often than not they've got something in common with everyone in the office. This person is a party starter, has a lot of fun at work and doesn't really care what others think. They're all about happy hour and making the best of the work-day woes, they just get a little loud sometimes. 3. The Coffee Fiend You do not want to meet this person at a Starbucks before 8A.M. They cannot function without their first cup of coffee. In fact they're like a zombie or some kind of ghoul without it. The few times you have seen them without coffee, they've looked like a completely different person. Normally they're pretty even keel and do good work in the office, just don't be the one who takes the last cup, or you will feel their wrath. 4. The Sleeper This person can fall asleep literally anywhere. It doesn't matter if they're at their desk, by the water cooler...no matter. They're gonna be asleep. You're always surprised at how easy it is for them to just konk out. And you're even more surprised that they haven't been fired yet. Whenever your boss comes around to check up on things they magically wake up and everything is fine. Damn, you kind of wish you had their skill. 5. The Golden Boy/Girl This person can't do anything wrong. It doesn't matter if you're kicking ass at work or not, they're the obvious favorite. Your boss is always talking about them, encouraging them and making an example out of their work. It's like a flashback to the smart kid in class who got all of the teachers' attention. You secretly hate and also want to be therm. It's not personal, just business.

Complete your profile When someone is deciding whether or not to follow you, there's a good chance they'll be looking through your entire profile before making their decision. Your Twitter profile offers a number of ways to communicate who you are and what you do in order to attract new followers. A complete profile includes: Name: If you couldn't come up with an ideal username on Twitter, make sure your profile name reflects your brand the way you want it to by staying within the 15-character limit. The less, the better, because it will be easy to remember. Bio: In the bio, you will have 160 characters to describe yourself. Make it count and describe yourself to the best of your ability and creatively. Location: Let people know where to find you with your location. Website: Take advantage and place the link to your business website or blog. Profile photo: Your profile photo will be seen along with every Tweet you send. Make sure the dimensions are correct. 400 × 400 pixels is recommended. Cover or Header Image: The cover image is the large image at the top of your profile that sits behind your profile image. Having a stretched or pixelated header image can make potential new followers see you as unprofessional about social media, so make sure it's sized appropriately. Twitter recommends using an image that is 1500 × 500 pixels. Pinned Tweet: This is a relatively new feature, and one that is often overlooked. This option is used to pin any Tweet you've sent to the top of your profile, making it the first message your followers will see on the profile. Pin a tweet about a current campaign or seasonal event, or one of your most popular Tweets that you think will help attract more followers. Promote your profile on other platforms Embedding your Twitter feed on your website can make it easier for your audience to discover your account and follow you without ever leaving the page. Similarly, incorporating your Tweets into your blog posts can also drive potential new followers to your account. Linking your Twitter account in your email signature and newsletters is another way to increase your visibility and reach new followers. You can be smarter than just asking your Facebook followers to follow you on Twitter as well. Tell them you'll give them discount coupons if they do and watch your numbers increase. Use Twitter for your live events When it comes to real-time coverage of events, Twitter will be your best ally. If you're attending a conference or event, be sure to participate on Twitter using the event's official hashtag. This will help you interact with the people attending the event and increase the visibility of your profile. If your company is hosting an event, make sure you make a very creative related hashtag. Use your offline media to promote your profile Think about where you can place a notice for new or existing customers to follow you on Twitter within your product or embedded materials. Include your Twitter handle in any offline marketing materials that you think could impact and generate potential new followers on Twitter , such as: brochures, print ads, banners, signs in your physical store, etc. Post attention-grabbing tweets Although it sounds very simple, the reality is that Twitter is a fast-moving social network, in which people consume content quickly. This means that your Tweets need to be frequent and compelling so that your followers are willing to share and engage with them, improving your chances of gaining new followers. That is why here we leave you some tricks to improve the writing and content of your tweets. Define your content strategy Let's think a bit, if you were a potential follower, what type of content would inspire you to hit the “Follow” button? Take a moment each day to listen to what your audience is talking about, and think about whether you have anything valuable to add to the conversation.

How To Write A Kick-Ass Cover Letter
So, you're applying for jobs after College. No doubt you've googled "how to write a cover letter" more often than you check your Vingle account. You're frustrated, scared and ultimately asking more questions than can be answered. Don't worry, I've been there. So I whipped up this post on how to write a kick-ass cover letter that will not only show your personality, but will appeal to your employers on a visceral level, setting you apart from the hundreds, or thousands of other applicants in your way. First, you must consider your audience. If you're writing to a hip, young company your style of voice would be different than if you're writing to an established, formal company. This is perhaps the most important part of cover letter writing. There's a bit more freedom when you're trying to work for an online outfit or something that is aimed at a young demographic. This often varies by profession, but usually with any of the creatives, it's fine to go a bit off the rails. For formal letters, adhere closely to the accepted format, here's where your googling will help, you can download a template here. These are typically demanded by professions in finance, science, mathematics, education, law and administration. This is just a straight-up generalization, but is usually accurate. For more free-flow letters you can write with a stylized voice that acknowledges the "fun" involved in the job. Professions like writing, music, non-profit work, theater and many more have less-strict rules and really appreciate when applicants get creative. (See my sample letter at the bottom of the post for an example) After you've considered your style, you have to put yourself in the potential employer's shoes. Imagine that you're in the boss' chair. You wouldn't want to read hundreds of dry-ass, boring cover letters all day. You'd probably want something with a bit of humor, that sticks out. It'd probably make your day for someone to do something different. You should be that different thing! The secret to writing an amazing cover letter is to BE YOURSELF. If you're crass and sarcastic, go there with your writing! If you can't be authentic from the get-go, you won't be happy. If they don't want you for who you are, you're probably not going to fit in at the company either, and who wants to pretend to be something they're not? Here is an actual cover letter I sent out to a magazine shortly before my senior year of college. The name of the magazine and publisher have been withheld: Dear *&#^$@!#$, I'm a recent college graduate and I'm buried in debt. I'd like a salary above the poverty line, with some room for my rent and a comfortable lifestyle. I don't need much, and I've lived modestly and below the average my whole life, as my father is unemployed and my mother works as a retail manager. I've always made my own way. Salary isn't a deal breaker for me, as I am more hungry for a career than for money. I'm a hard worker, a quick learner and someone who gives everything for what they believe in. I think I could make a difference at @#$% and provide a perspective that is underrepresented in media. We grow up looking at outlaw writers as warped men or unattainable party girls. To get behind what's happening in the twenty-something sphere, and not just in a "omg these gifs totally get me" kind of way, you need someone who is honest, candid and does attempt to hit standards set by the media. I can be that person. I have nothing to lose, no ties to anywhere. I've got other offers on the table, but would gladly take a turn at your company over them. Just being honest. All I have are my ideas, my qualifications and my experiences. I will graduate in 2015 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in acting and a minor in Journalism from the Scripps School.I'm just trying to get a head start as only God knows where jobs come from these days. I started off as a Journalism major, but was told I couldn't write in an interactive way, and told them to shove it. I've been in the media world my whole life. My dad, now semi-retired, was an Emmy and Golden Mic award winning journalist for KVOA in Los Angeles, and has reported on OJ, Michael, earthquakes and murders. I was never shielded from these events, and carry his skills along with the ones I developed in school. If you take a chance on me, a shambolic young woman with some big ideas, then I will work as hard as possible to make them a reality. I love the pieces in your magazine. They're edgy, clear, risky and dangerous. The world needs more writing like that. I can create that writing. Thanks for considering me. You can reach me at &#*$(@) And you can read my current writing on my blog (duh). I'm aware that some of it is a little raw, but hey...what can you do? Tess Stevens How did it end you ask? I was rejected, but that's not the point. I'm proud of this cover letter. Frankly it's one of the best things I've ever written, because it's truthful. It's indicative of my true self. It doesn't matter that I never heard back. It's a kick-ass cover letter, and now you can write one too!
