Fresh starts are always great. Take school for instance. If you’re like me, before a new school year kicks off, you love the idea of getting school supplies, notebooks and folders for each class, and colored pens to color code your notes. And you always promise yourself that this is the year where you stay organized and stick it out till the end. But… that never lasts. Well, at least for me it doesn’t.
I would be about four weeks into school and I was already losing pens, color coding was no longer a thing, and the whole “I’m gonna physically write things down in my notebook because it helps me remember things more easily” was overpowered by my computer.
Oh, but it gets better! Having to put my papers in the actual pockets of my folders seemed harder than just throwing them in my bag, and soon enough I didn’t have a pencil case, the front pocket of my book bag was my pencil case.
Though I went from bringing folders and notebooks to only bringing my laptop and a textbook (if needed) to class, it’s not the end of the world. I’ll have my bouncing back moments, but for the most part, color coding and organization is not a huge priority of mine.
If you are anything like me, you’ll understand that sometimes the fast-paced college lifestyle gets the best of us, and our school-organizational skills go right down the drain. However, don’t get discouraged if you no longer use your color-coded, perfect folders with a coordinating binder at this point in the year, because remember…there’s always next semester!
