When I first started using a Passion Planner, I knew I had finally found a great way for myself to get organized during college and stay on top of things. What I didn’t know, was how many other resources and communities lie inside the #PashFam!
I only just recently discovered how large the Passion Planner family is on Instagram – and it’s amazing! I could spend hours scrolling through feeds of other people’s weekly spreads, getting ideas for myself and discovering new things to try out myself! However, my favorite thing so far I’ve discovered through Passion Planner is all Etsy stores online that sell stickers specifically for Passion Planner compact and classic sizes!
The first sticker store I found through Instagram was Shannon, at PlanningByShannon! I came across her profile and LOVED her weekly spreads. Then I discovered she designed, printed and sold her own stickers just for Passion Planners! PLUS – she was doing an online book club – something I’ve been looking for for SO LONG! Long story short, I’ve placed so many random orders with Shannon, been subscribed to her website and make so many random comments on her posts I’m not sure how she hasn’t blocked me yet!! Hahahaha. (Thank you Shannon!! <3)
Anyway, this post is going to be about how utilizing Shannon’s stickers has completely changed how I use my Passion Planner on a weekly basis – and it’s amazing!
This will probably be one of the more personal blog posts I’ve posted thus far, so bear with me! Something I’ve seen some people struggle with (in addition to myself) is learning to do things on their own. I don’t mean growing up and having to do adult-like things you don’t really feel like doing, I mean not having friends to go casually shopping with. Spending more time by yourself than with other people. Just not feeling that connected to people around you. Maybe you do put in the effort towards other people, but they just don’t give that same amount of effort so you’re left feeling dumb and defeated, wondering why you tried again to begin with.
I’ve been there. I’m currently there. I’ve been there the last few years. And it sucks! Scrolling through Instagram you see every other girl post cute, trendy pictures with their friends makes me wish I had that, and I know I’m not alone! Nevertheless, I’m more a less a happy person, but I wanted to write about why its important to learn to be comfortable with doing things by yourself!
This past fall semester, I had the displeasure of being in three group projects, meaning three out of the four classes I was taking involved a long-term group project. This was my actual worst nightmare, but had no choice but to go through with everything because I needed these classes for graduation in May.
So, as expected, I had issues with group members in every single one of those said projects. I’m a pretty easy going group member, but once I approached my professor (the ultimate and final option…) with the issues at hand they each assured me my frustration was reasonable. Knowing I wasn’t just a crazy group member, here is how I dealt with the three different kinds of crummy group members I encountered last semester.
Ahhh, Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re in a relationship or not, everyone always has their own opinions on this day. Personally, I’ve never minded Valentine’s Day and everything about it even throughout middle and high school when my classmates would make SUCH a huge deal out of it.
Valentine’s Day to me has the potential for the CUTEST decorations, color pallets, gift ideas, everything! Personally, I see it as a day just to show some love to everyone you care about, not just your significant other (if you have one!). There are so many different people to celebrate Valentine’s Day with, but my favorite ideas come from spending the day with your best friends! While I personally don’t really have that many girlfriends to hang out with, I know most other girls do so I wanted to share my ideas on Galentine’s Day date ideas!
