Don’t Keep Things in your Head

I was talking to my mom yesterday, and I realized I’ve slacked hard on the things that need to get done this summer.  As I’ve mentioned before, I’m wedding planning around my school calendar, which basically means this summer, winter break, spring break, and next summer after I take the Bar exam.  Which totals up to not very much time at all.

I’ve posted step-by-steps on some of my projects for this summer, but how I’m actually doing them is more like an assembly line.  For instance, for the invitations I’ve printed them and stamped them and done some other things, but there aren’t any fully completed invitations except for the one I used for the blog post.

And I have all the steps in my head, but the problem is that in my head it didn’t seem like all that much.

RULE: Don’t keep things in your head.

I’m the type of person that if I don’t write it down, it doesn’t exist.  I’ll forget it’s my own birthday if it’s not in my planner.  So me walking around with all these “to dos” in my head – big fail.

Mom made me write a list, and now I’m kinda freaked out – when an I supposed to do all this?  Guess I need a little more crafting and a little less NCIS reruns in my evenings 😀
