Hi there!

Hi! Welcome to my corner of the internet. I'm a 26 year old therapist, feminist, photographer, and shop owner currently living in Seattle, Washington. My shop, Dealign with Feelings, is geared toward destigmatizing and normalizing mental health. I'm biased, but I think we have some pretty cute stuff :) Click the "shop" tab to see what we've got! I mainly post about my travel and daily life on here. With other random musings thrown in. I post more frequently (and about more feminism) on my Instagram @emmycoletti, so make sure you're following me there. Thanks for stopping by!

School Organization Hack

Wednesday, November 16, 2016

Hi! If you've ever wondered how I got my Bachelor's degree in 2 1/2 years, THIS is how. This hack literally saved me during my 18 credit semesters.

Step 1.) Gather all the syllabuses (syllabi?) for your classes.

Step 2.) Create an Excel document like this. You'll have 3 columns: due date, assignment name, and class. Go through each syllabus and insert the assignments, readings, tests, basically anything with a due date. Once they are all entered, you will sort the document by date. Pictured below is what mine looked like before it was sorted.

Step 3.) Organize the cells by date.

Step 4.) Pull up a calendar and color code the weeks.

Step 5.) Go kick butt! I took 18 credit semesters and this hack was a lifesaver to juggling 5/6 classes every semester. You'll never forget an assignment again!
