I don't think I've ever written a whole post on organising even though I love doing it. I could talk hours about staying organised. I am just so forgetful that I need order in my life when I can have it, otherwise I'd be a bit of a mess.

Everyone has their own system of being organized so what I'll share with you is solely based on how I do it because it's a system that I found that works for me. So it might not work for you! But maybe I'll be able to spark some inspiration for some.

Whilst downgrading and cutting back on material to minimise baggage for my move, I've decided to ditch paper planners. Long story short, I've found something that works for me perfectly fine and it saves paper and space in my bag, too.

Planning every day


I use the good old iCalendar for the Mac and iPhone. No special, fancy app. Yup, I'm going basic! After watching Lucy and Hannah's organisation video, I stole Hannah's idea and decided to put everything on my iCalendar which is accessible on my laptop and my phone so that's definitely coming in handy every day. And with everything I mean everything – events, blog posts, story updates and tasks!

Crazy you think? Probably, yes. But I needed something to put everything in one place and I feel this way is working pretty well so far that I've decided to stick with it. How you ask? Here's a quick run-down. I thought I would give you a simulation of my actual calendar and screenshot my method.


This is the monthly view I have on my laptop. My calendar is colour-coded because I've always colour-coded events, etc. Tasks are blue, events and appointments are yellow, national holidays green and blog posts and story updates are orange.

As you can see in my weekly view, I put all the tasks for the days as "all-day" events so they stay at the top and I can just erase them one by one. Ticking them away with a strike-away effect would be great but you can't have everything so I just erase the tasks when they're done or move them to the next day.

Blog posts and story updates are put as an all-day event as well so I have an easy overview of what is still to write, to schedule, to post.

The rest, events and appointments, are just down below with their time stamps. That can be exams, work shifts, doctor's appointments. Since I don't have too much going on at the moment other than uni and my part-time job, I am keeping my work shifts yellow, too. If it gets busier in the future I'll probably colour-code it differently.

And here's the daily view. Tasks and updates / posts are at the top, making it easy for a quick overview of the day. I keep my reminders for events and appointments on. The thing is I put so much for tasks. That could be the smallest things like, call the doctor or get laundry done. I am so forgetful and as an anxious person it helps me to write everything down as tasks. So that's why sometimes my task bar is incredibly long but a girl's got to do what she's got to do when she's stressed and forgetful.

In-depth planning


Of course I can't put every detail in my iCalendar. I need space. I need massive space for ideas and to-do's for my stories and blog posts and everything else. I recently started actively, regularly using Trello. You might have heard from this pretty tool already, and if not, this is what it is:

Trello is accessible via Web, as an app for laptops and phones, Apple and Android. It's an organisation tool reminding of a pin-board. Basically you create boards, where you add lists and then add as many cards as you'd like. They can be annotated, you can add to-do's, mark a scheduled time, etc. You can freely move items and cards around. Here's how I use it:


This is my board for my works/stories, one of many boards that I currently have. I've got the cards for ideas for stories, completed works, the ones I'm working on for publishing, the ones I have on hold at the moment and the board goes on and on with all of my stories solely.


To each card you can add tasks. This is from my university board and this is my card for Tourism Management, a subject I had to study for. I added tasks for the card, steps to take and things to take care of for studying (because I tend to procrastinate more when I think of a task of a whole. So instead of saying "Study Tourism Management today" I'll divide small tasks so it doesn't sound like it's too much to do). I can tick tasks off and add comments if I think of anything extra.


Each board and card can be shared with others to participate. So if you're working with a partner or a group, this is a great way of organising everything as everyone can add comments, etc. Trello works together with the app Slack for teams, so there you go.

So many E-Mails


For E-Mails I simply use the normal, basic iOS Mail app on my phone and on my laptop. It's simple and I like to keep it simple. I added all e-mail accounts and have several (many) folders for each account so I can move all incoming e-mails to specific folders for organisation purposes. I flag important ones and mark ones as unread so I won't forget to reply to the ones that need a response as soon as possible. (I will have the urge to check unread e-mails to get rid of the badge counts so that will help me remember to go through said e-mails).

Setting up signatures helps tremendously if you don't have the time to put up with writing it out over and over.


Tracking expenses & keeping my budget


Spendee is still my all-time favourite. The American version is called Mint, I think. That app isn't accessible here in Germany for some reason so I'm sticking with Spendee. I actually upgraded the app (it's perfectly fine used in the free version) because I don't only have my daily expenses to keep track of but also the money I owe friends or what friends owe me and budgets for trips, etc.

It's such a pretty app that I look forward to using every day. You can even add receipts as pictures which is great for me. Every evening I sit down to go through my expenses of the day. More on the app itself and how I sort out my finances here!


Daily logs & Journal writing



Some of you might know since I started therapy I learned to keep track of daily mood logs every day. I couldn't bother with my notes app or my calendar so I downloaded the Day One app for my laptop and phone. It's a diary/journal app where you can add as many journals as you'd like. Not that I need multiple journals, my life isn't that exciting. But I have one that is for my daily logs, one for my thoughts and what I usually jot down in my journal when feeling anxious or when I'm reminiscing, and one for goals and personal plans, e.g. what I want to do while I'm in London, what I want to get done, To-Go's and so on. It's safe with a password and I can access it anywhere. You can add photos from your camera roll and even connect with your Twitter and Instagram where it'll include your tweets and pictures. You can put a location, too.

Look, I know what some of you are thinking. Before this I would've shaken my head at myself, too, why being so digital and why don't I just keep writing per hand? Isn't that more "intimate"? More personal? But the thing is,

  • I don't like to waste fancy paper anymore. 
  • And I want to be able to re-read my entries at any time and I've got like three filled journals back home that I can't just grab and read. This way I can even search up key words and find entries from the past with the speed of a button. (Now I've taken pictures of all content of my old diaries too and put their date on the app.)
  • I can't even bring a paper journal with me all the time. I don't always have a pen or space to write. 
  • And most of the times I have so much on my mind that I can't even write all of it down, not because it would've turned into a novel but because my hand would hurt so freaking much. 
All these reasons lead to me deciding to get that app and journal this way.


Keeping track of girly needs


Oh, periods. What can I say, I don't like being surprised by my natural body procedures. That's why I like to keep track of my period with Clue. This is a cute app many women already know. I even know boyfriends that downloaded the app to keep track for their girlfriends! I know, crazy. And cute.

I use this app to track many more things than just my red days, though. You can log how much your bleeding was on a day, how bad the pain was, how you were feeling emotionally, how much sleep you got, whether you had sex that day or not, how energetic you felt, what you craved throughout the day, how your skin has been and how much you weight.

Source

As you can see this apps knows to do a lot of things so it can be a great "body" tracker next to the Health app as well. You can even set reminders for your pill, for when your next cycle is about to begin, when you're estimated to ovulate. Quite handy if you ask me.

Feels like this was quite a lot! Tell me below what you use and how to stay organised. Thoughts on digital vs. handwritten journaling? Any questions on how I organise are welcome as well.

Until then – stay groovy,

How I Organise Absolutely Everything (Detailed)

We all know the climate in this world is changing and it's always been a big issue hanging in the air, loose and transparent, not really there to grasp it but big enough to not be ignored. You've heard about it a long time ago and it keeps being a topic because well, it is. A huge topic. And extremely dangerous and it's JUST. NOT. STOPPING.

I was thinking a lot about climate change and how we, as individuals, can do to help. Climate change is usually underrated as a problem because it isn't that apparent in e.g. Germany. We did have high water levels but that was it. No hurricanes or big disasters so far. Yeah, so far. Also, people have gotten used to natural disasters and contaminated air.

Here are a few things you can do as an individual to help making the first step.

Reduce energy use.


Replace standard light bulbs with energy-efficient compact fluorescent bulbs. And make it a habit to turn out the lights whenever you leave a room, even if it's the washing room in your uni. Unplug your computers, TVs and other electronics when they're not in use.

Use cloth bags to go grocery shopping.


I've gotten this great cloth bag from REWE, a German supermarket and I've used it ever since. It's light enough to pack in your daily bag and pull out when you go grocery shopping, pretty enough to carry around and it's steady enough to keep everything inside. No need for plastic bags of any kind.


Change transportation.


Maybe try and get by with trams or bikes instead of cars sometimes. Reduce that carbon footprint and save money on gas as well. Walking will do your health good, too. This is a reason why I haven't gotten a car yet, also because I don't feel like I need one just yet. And to be honest, I don't think I will be needing it much in the near future, either.

You don't need that plastic lid for your coffee to go.


I know it's kinda practical to have the lid on but do you actually need it? Your tea or coffee will cool down quicker, too. Maybe go for your own insulating bottle for your coffee.

Cool wash!


Hang to dry your clothes since dryers are energy hogs, maybe even handwash smaller pieces of clothing.

Eat wisely.


Avoid processed items and go for locally grown foods and organic foods. Going vegetarian of course is an option since 18% of greenhouse gas emissions come from the dairy and meat production. You don't have to go vegetarian or vegan completely, only ditching meat for one meal a day is a step.

Recycle.


It's easier than it sounds, really. You just have to start. Recycle and purchase things you can repurpose multiple times.


More about what you can do about climate change here. Feel free to treat the comment section as a forum, I'd love to hear more suggestions on how to help out in this matter.

Until then – stay conscious,

What can WE do to help our climate?

So, this is embarrassing. And kind of terrifying to me. I don't know if I'm the only one but I hope I'm not because I feel like I'm the only one shitbat crazy. I don't know when it started honestly but I know I'm at fault for causing my own paranoia. Don't laugh at me but I honestly think my paranoia was triggered by watching shows like, for example, Criminal Minds. Anyone who knows the series or a similar one, you know the show and similar shows are about murderers, their victims and pretty intense plot twists.

Let me elaborate on how paranoid I actually am.

  • I need to close my doors properly, always. House doors preferably with the keys even though I'm alone. I think someone could break in whilst I'm sleeping. 
  • I keep a knife underneath my pillow. Stay away, creeps. Bitch is gonna get cuuuut. 
  • Sometimes I keep the little light on to be able to sleep.
  • Walking home at night is a nightmare. I get anxious and keep looking around and behind me to make sure nobody suddenly bursts out of their vans and snatches me away. Sometimes I'm startled by my own foot steps. 
  • I get anxious walking home or somewhere else when drunk obnoxious men are following me and talking loudly at me. Immediately I think I could get raped. 
  • My mum's door to the living room where I sleep on the couch is semi-transparent and at night, without lenses or glasses on, I sometimes think I see something behind it and get freaked out until I shine my light on it and am reassured there's nothing. 
  • On the streets sometimes I'm afraid someone will steal from me even though it's unlikely. (Someone snatching my phone out of my hand, etc.)

Thing is, I know it's all irrational. It's stupid. Why would anyone barge into Mum's home when we live in a flat in a building with 10 floors? Why would someone try to barge into my student apartment at night when I'm sleeping? Why would anyone hide in the bushes to wait for me and get me? Why would someone wait in that white huge van in the parking lot to kidnap young women? 

But I can't help it. It's irrational but it kickstarts my anxiety so much. I said, "I should stop watching those shows. They're interesting and grab me but dude, they make me paranoid as hell. This isn't good." But do I stop? No, absolutely not. It's such a good show, so why would I? I'm deeply interested in crimonology and serial killers' thoughts and back stories. So it would be pretty hard to keep myself away from such shows and documentaries. So I either stop watching or accept I'm a pussy. 

Honestly my interest in such kind of topics are the only cause I can think of that triggers my paranoia like that. Oh, and news about serial killers not being caught yet. And this is a conflict I wish I could solve so I can enjoy researching on what I'm interested in (now I must sound like a freaking psychopathic woman, I am sorry, I swear I am not) whilst not being so damn paranoid. 

There are days where I'm fine and I go home without looking around for once (okay maybe once, but not twice). But this is something I got conscious about so I decided to write about it. 

Guys, can you relate?

Until then – stay cautious,
Arden

I'm Paranoid

In the life

  • Exam week. No comment. (I'm doing quite well I think. Even though I had several mental breakdowns at therapy because of it. I'm fine. Really. The worst exam is over with.) 
  • Preparing for my move to London. IT IS HAPPENING. Someone pinch me. I'm so so excited and cannot wait. I've started removing my stuff from my flat and am now sorting everything out. The things I won't be bringing will have to stay with Mum. 
  • If you would like to follow my journey, either follow me on Instagram or check my portfolio for a bunch of new photos! 

Posts you might have missed


Music

  • This is the best Shape Of You Sing-Off by Conor Maynard and The Vamps. I cannot tell you how many times I've been listening to it. Simply because I lost count a long time ago.
  • Dodie's mashup is so beautiful. Nuff said. You guys already know I crush so hard on her music & her. 
  • And of course I had to include her Come Together cover with the amazing Jon Cozart. (You might know him from his After Ever After videos as PAINT.) Their harmony is no joke.

How has your week been? Hopefully all is fine. Stay warm! Spring is coming soon.
