Autostraddle cannot exist without the generous support of our readers. We're running the fundraiser through March 29th!
We're out of immediate danger...but we had to ask...what if we could survive for longer? Will you help?
Go to our Fundraiser!
I am a queer coparenting mama to Dickens Jr. Doodler by day, 911 dispatcher by night. All my favorite shows look better on Tumblr. I am two years and 450K words deep into constructing a fanfic called Ages and I'm never giving up on it. Bering & Wells.
Alana has written 123 articles for us.
The lengths we go to, to fool ourselves…
au contraire… she’s setting specific nonexpectations in the face of a casual acceptance we seem to have around extreme education debt.
These two crack me up 😂
I’m… let’s just say… resuming… after 20 years and this is literally the exact same conversation I have been having with myself.
Same! Speaking of…anyone know of a good (paper) planner to keep track of schedules, assignments, etc?
Or a way to turn my Gay Agenda dot notebook into that? All that open space is just intimidating.
There are a lot of good ones but I swear my Passion Planner has gotten me thru nursing school (so- lectures, labs, clinicals, uniforms and equipment, co-requirements, and before I was in the program it was 12 different prerequisite classes that all had their own way they needed to be completed) with young children during pandemic times when childcare is wildly unreliable, and when they need things like swim lessons and speech. I’m almost done. I really couldn’t have done it without spending time with my planner each week and slotting in all my tasks etc. I used erasable colored pens. I’m now using my Passion Planner to transition to post-graduation life to try to keep my eyes on why I wanted to be a nurse (flexible schedule, downtime, fun with my kids). 100% recommend it.
Going to start off with calendar app, but plan to revert to paper if it gets to be too much.
I was looking at smart notebooks but haven’t tried any yet.
easing your way into new knowledge by taking some classes to learn some things sounds super fun, and like a very cool approach
