Routines (and Stuff!!!)

Okay, we all know routines are the easiest things in the world. If you already know about this routine stuff, HELP MEEEE!!! Give your advice in the COMMENTS!!!!

Now, lets begin. First off, you would want an alarm. Normally, I go to bed around 10:00pm. Which isn't very good if you want to wake up around 8:02am. My suggestion: Get an alarm clock. I use my phone, which to me, is much less complicated. (#gotechnology!!!!) You can set an alarm for anything! When to go to sleep. When to wake up. If you have something important to do, like a Girls Day Out, you can set an alarm for that too! Alarm's are awesome, because they remind you when to do something. Usually, alarm's are already built into the phone or tablet, but if not, you can always download.

Next, we have a Calender. A calendar is where you schedule anything you have to do for the month. I think it's better to plan ahead, so you're not rushing around when it's time. Lets say you had a doctor appointment on March 18th. You would write Doctor's Appointment. Then you would write the time, and if you want, the address. Optionally, you can add an alarm or notification for that day. EASY PEASY!!!!

Okay, now it's time for the Scheduler. I personally use Fly Helper, which is AWESOME for me. Download it in the Google Play store today!!! It's free, don't worry. If you prefer a different scheduler app, or want to make your own on pen and paper, that is TOTES fine. Now, follow the directions of the app, and you can make Meal Plans, Day Plans, Routines, and Tasks. The difference between routines and tasks are: routines are something you do every day. Normally, they don't change. There's Morning, Afternoon, and Evening. A task is something that rapidly change. A task for Monday might be do the laundry while a task for Tuesday might be do some groceries.

On my app, Fly Helper, I have a section called Zones. This is where you can set different parts of the house (attic, closet, your bedroom), and have different parts to clean. The title would be My Bedroom. And you would have little sections underneath saying Dust under the bed or Organize the bookshelf. You could do any of these tasks on whichever day you wanted! And you could check your tasks, your routines, or your zones off whenever you were finished.

NOTE: DO NOT PLAN OUT YOUR LIFE!!! I know some people get carried away with this scheduling thing and try to map out everything they think will happen. It is SO not good to do that. On some days, it's good to just take that alarm off, and ignore the routines. Routines can be helpful, but you don't want every day being robotic. Wake up. School. Eat. Sleep. Wake up. School. Eat. Sleep. No!!! Every day should have a spontaneous leap to it, that makes that day unique. 

I hope you enjoyed my post!!! Have fun scheduling!!!!

"Nerds" and "Geeks"

Lots of girls consider themselves or other people "geeks" or "nerds." WHY? A nerd is someone who reads a lot, usually gets A's and B's, and is very smart. Since when did being smart become an insult?

A geek is normally someone who isn't a modern fashionista, isn't very athletic, and doesn't particularly have to be smart. They normally enjoy video games and comics. Why? Why is not being athletic an insult? Like you may not be good at Art, but good at singing, some people may not be good at athletics, but good at something else.

Nerds and geeks are teased mercilessly, all the time. The "cool kids" won't hang out with nerds or geeks. Why? Because they may be socially inept. Or smarter. Or faster. We do NOT need to judge people by how they look!

Don't judge a book by its cover. I know many of you have heard this before. Let me give you an example. If you found a book that had flowers, sparkles, and rainbows on it, you may pick it up. You may say, "Ooh! I bet this will be about something magical and interesting." But it may be just the opposite. Inside the book would have knights slaying dragons, and a lava monster knocking down a princess's tower. See? You thought the book was one thing, but it was something totally different.

If someone dressed with an over-sized baggy sweater and some sweats, you couldn't say they were sloppy and unorganized. You would have to get to know them, just like the book.

I hope after reading this you guys reconsider calling people or yourselves nerds or geeks. It's not right. :(

Purely Natural Candy

Love peanut butter, hate prunes? Love prunes, hate peanut butter? This recipe combines BOTH! I don't know about you guys, but I love prunes. They taste sweet and delicious!!!

IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO PEANUTS, DO NOT USE THIS RECIPE!!!!

YOU. WILL. NEED:

Prunes (if you don't know what a prune is, that's ok! Ask your mom or dad. Prunes are sold at your local store, so don't worry. They're just dried peaches, like how raisins are dried grapes...but I don't like raisins)
Peanut Butter
A dull knife


HOW. TO. DO. IT:

First, cut your prune in half with your dull knife. You can either cut it all the way across, or halfway for stability. Now, use your knife to scoop out some peanut butter and stuff as little or as much as you want! Close the prune-and-butter sandwich, and enjoy!!!

This post is dedicated to my mom, for thinking of the recipe she used to make!!!
