My past couple of days have been absolutely insane; there were points at which I considered literally running from place to place (but thankfully chose to walk, albeit briskly, instead). Between classes, clubs, errands, friends, and a plethora of other ongoing outside projects, it’s all too easy to feel like you’re spiraling out of control in college. So how does a busy student ace assignments, hand in homework, commit to clubs, and find time for friends all while appearing perfectly put-together? Pristine planning. My tricks to the tasking trade include a detailed day planner, a wall calendar, electronic notes on my computer and phone, and an incredible number of sticky notes (there might be an unhealthy obsession there…). Here are some of my Cat-approved favorites:
About The Author
My name is Catherine Elizabeth Ziac (Cat, for short) and I am a senior at Union College in Schenectady, NY. When I'm not studying for my major in economics or my minor in Russian, you can find me skimming through catalogs, playing the flute, fishing, online window shopping, chatting with my sisters (my twin, Julia, studying physics at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, CA, or my little sister Maddy, currently a senior in high school), or out and about in good old Schenectady with my wonderful Union friends! I love pink nails, long showers, office supplies, and going to the public library. I spend too much time looking at blogs and skimming the WSJ online, but I still believe in the merits of a hand-written letter. I am always in the mood for yogurt and granola and am never without a piece of gum. I usually answer "blue" when asked my favorite color, but I know in my heart that it's always been and always will be garnet!
