Free Download: Assignment Calendar 2016 – 2017 School Year

This assignment calendar is the perfect way to organize your work and never miss a due date.. great for students both in college and high school!

Nearly a year ago I shared a free download for an assignment calendar for the Spring semester because I believe that there’s an art in preparing for a new semester.

I said “there’s definitely something to be said about how the preparation in the first couple weeks of a semester can help make or break your organization. I have previously shared my tips for preparing for a new semester of classes, as well as the different ways that I organize my assignments using an assignment schedule, day planners, post-it note calendar, and more.

However, this semester it was a little different. As I sat down with my syllabus’ (syllabi?) to create my assignment schedule, I found myself craving a new form of organization. Through my day planners and Google Calendar, I have gotten so used to seeing things scheduled out in a calendar form, it felt strange laying out my assignment schedule in a list form instead.

So, I created the assignment calendar. This is kind of like the assignment schedule version 2.0, new and improved. It works like a charm.”

Since I shared that first calendar, I have gotten amazing feedback on this template and form of organization.

Here are some of the comments and feedback I got:

“OMG, this is GENIUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love planning and this is perfect, can you PLEASE make one for FALL ’16 as it is approaching!!!!!!!! this is amazingggg!!!!”

– Paola


“Thank you SO much for this assignment calendar, and thanks for all your tips in general!!! I will be starting my first year of college in the Fall and I am so nervous yet excited! Your blog is so helpful and I will DEFINITELY be utilizing the calendar and other suggestions you have made. Thanks for everything!!!”

– Samantha


“This is so incredible, thank you!!”

– Kaitlen


“This is AMAZING- Thanks so much for making this. Could you make more for future semesters? <3″

– Aster

I was shocked, amazed, and most of all excited. So here it is, back by popular request, the download for the 2016 – 2017 school year assignment calendar!

Theme Park Checklist

Theme Park Checklist - from an amusement park enthusiast! Never go unprepared, everything that you need to make sure you have for a successful day in the park.

While I’ve spent the majority of my summer focusing on working I’ve had a lot more time to relax and a lot more days off than I normally do have during the school year. It’s great being able to sleep in, have lazy days around the house, and watch a bunch of Netflix (right now I’m obsessed with Grey’s Anatomy.. honestly its so good!) but some days I need to do more and get out and have a full day of activities. On days like that I’m grateful for where I live, because I’m close to two large amusement parks (Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood) which gives me a chance to spend my days there.

To me there is something magical about going to a theme park: it helps transport you to a different world and allows you to forget all your stresses and troubles for one day.

I grew up going to Disneyland once a year with my family and lately got myself an annual pass so I could go more often. Through this I have learned a lot of tricks and tips on how to survive all day Amusement Park trips. Planning a trip to a theme park this summer? Here’s what to make sure to pack in your bag that day:

One of the best ways to get into the spirit of going to an amusement park is to jump in full force. Whether you’re a pin collector, a button wearer, or a DisneyBounder there are a bunch of ways to get involved and look cute doing it!

My favorite thing is to wear my Mickey Mouse ears while visiting Disneyland, Read More!
