I want SO BADLY to be able to keep a pretty paper planner and USE IT WELL.
But I never buy them because I know that will NEVER happen. I was useless at it in high school, and I was pretty terrible at it when I first started uni too. Then, by the time I went back to studying this time around, fantastic electronic things like iPads had arrived and I got one… And that was the end of paper planners for me.
I still tried to use a paper planner that first year, because I loved how pretty they looked and I felt really productive writing everything in it and colour-coding everything all nicely. But that lasted all of about a month into semester, and from that point on I was just writing in my work hours and not using any of the other “planner” bits.
So, as much as I lament not having a paper planner, I will be realistic – buying one is a waste of money, because I would not use it the way it should be used.
It will not stop me lusting after all those beautiful ones that I see on everyone’s blogs though.
