It’s That Scheduled Time Of Year Again

It is that time of year again, folks.

It’s time…

…to get my new agenda ready.

And no, I’m not talking about some figurative agenda that I have to start planning for my diabolical machinations.

I am a big agenda person. I like keeping my days organized with a physical planner, none of that phone shit for me. I make bullet-point entries of all the things I need to do each day. When I complete the activity/task/chore, I cross out its bullet point. Crossing those items off my daily to-do list is immensely satisfying. Sometimes, I think I put things on my agenda just so I can have something to cross out.

Having an agenda really caters to the list-making part of me too. No matter what, thanks to my agenda, I work with a list every day. (For some of my list-oriented posts, click here!)

My agenda obsession started when I was in junior high. I wish I could say I was cool enough to have brought my own agenda to class, but I wasn’t that awesome when I was younger. The school’s administration passed out agendas to all incoming middle schoolers on our first day. They probably wanted to instill organizational skills in us. And hey howdy hey, it worked! Well, on me at least.

I buy agendas once a year now. It’s a habit, but one I’m not entirely ashamed of.

Since I got introduced to agendas through school, I always buy the July-to-June agendas instead of the January-to-December ones (which are so totally lame). Which means, as I stated before, that it is officially time to get a new agenda since June is ending.

I’m a basic bitch when it comes to buying my agendas, so I always just pop over to the nearest Staples and by the most appealing, overpriced planner I can get. I wish I could say that I crafted my own agendas out of sketch paper and a three-ring binder, but I haven’t reached such levels of niftiness yet.

Do you guys get agendas of some sort? (If it’s a January-to-December kind, I was just being silly before when I said they were lame!)
