Watch the original video here ( x )
Before I saw this video, I always kept a book for my homework. I use grid paper and it’s perfect for BJ… Heh. After watching this, it helped me to start developing a system I’m currently satisfied with. 

To-do apps don’t work with me. It always just sits on my screen with a notification and swiping something doesn’t feel as satisfying as crossing it out victoriously with a pen. ^_^

  1. LEGENDS ( you can also do it like thisHelps you quickly figure out what certain tasks are at a glance. The colours are for my spiraldexes which I will not be discussing unless you guys request it. c:
  2. Pages This is basically what my pages look like. I write the numbers at the lower corners.I also added sticky notes for extra stuff like memorizing my moral definitions. :p
  3. Calendar  ( x ) If you watch the video, you’re supposed to list out the dates but I prefer both, so I draw a calendar and paste it in my book and list out all the really appointments/stuff I have to do in my drawn calendar and some not-important-but-still-worth-noting notes in my list-calendar.
  4. Index Just write down the pages as shown in the video. Pretty simple. 
  5. Other things you can include: I also stick some motivational images on the last page and stuff like that. Spiraldexes can be fun but they tend to be a little time consuming to draw or at least, I can seem to use them effectively. :c
  1. Have pages especially for grocery lists/ grades/ etc. 
  2. Page full of favourite recipes
  3. Stick an envelope at the back cover and fill it with motivational inspiration!
  4. Stick printables ( x ) ( x ) ( x ) ( x )
  5. Start a goal/wishlist!

 Good luck! :* 



How I keep a progress Journal

I have wanted to share my progress journal with all of you,for a while now. But it was just about now that I actually bothered to take pictures of it. 

I don’t even know if this is a progress journal, it is just some kind of everything journal. This journal contains four things: To-do lists, reading lists, schedules and updates.

Schedules. I don’t always have schedules, but i mainly make them a day before an exam, or an day when I know I have a lot to do. Sometimes I make them in the middle of the day when I know that I have been slacking off and then need to kill it for the rest of the day. 

Entries. This works like diary entries, where I write down my thoughts and feelings and such, however this is just academic thoughts. Maybe if I had a great day at school, and really feel like that I had proven myself, then I come home and try to describe the feeling, and how it affected me. 

To Do’s. This is the same concept as the post I made about post-its which you can read here  I just keep everything in here, so that once  I get rid of the post-its I can still look back and have some kind of overview. 

Reading list. I usually make these lists, when I have to read up for a test or an exam, just to have an overview over what I have read and what I still have to come. 

This has really helped me get an overview of my exams, and really made me stress less. I hope that if you decide to make use of this system that it will benefit you as much as it has to me.
