Wisdom Wednesday

So, I am loving college life! Things are going really well, and I'm keeping my head above water when it comes to homework and such... for the most part! (if you consider staying up til 3 AM finishing Spanish while all your roommates are already in REM "head above water" haha)
I am so far liking classes, and the careless days of summer are officially OVER! In addition to going to 3 or 4 classes every day, I've gotten roped into volunteering at Provost Elementary every Monday, and I'm working about 18 hours a week, and I'm trying to fit the gym and friends to this mix. Whew. It's fun, but I feel like I've got a lot on my plate after a summer of waking up naturally most days, and then facebooking my life away! I've missed the structure :)
And you know what is the best part about this structure? My new planner!
WW26- Attend New Student Orientation. It's awful, but you get a FREE BYU Planner that all others must buy in the bookstore.
As I have said before, there is nothing better than writing down every detail of your life in a planner. I've tried phone calendars and icalendar, but they don't hold a candle to my new agenda! I like writing things. I like looking at my handwriting. I like pens. Those are three things loves that cannot be fulfilled when using electronic planners... and I don't plan on converting anytime soon.

Yay! I'm so happy that things are going so well! Although I didn't actually talk to you on the phone last night, I heard your voice as you and dad conversed! You sounded so good! It made me happy and I'm looking forward to seeing you this weekend! Hurray! It totally gives me something to look forward to! Keep it up!

I had no idea you were a fellow planner-lover. I have colors for different is for birthdays, blue for my kids' school functions, purple for my work hours and black for appts. If I lost my planner now I'd cry for days.
