Study Inspiration!

To get you excited for the new semester at school, I've photographed my school supplies!
Ever since I was a kid, I adored shopping for school supplies. I'm too sure what that means, but I know I had a thing for making sure everything matched--and I still do. Today, school supplies means a little more than just the colors and prints. I need the right tools to successfully study and simply be in the correct mindset. I took inspiration from some amazing "studyspo" blogs on tumblr and took myself to Target. 
Beautiful, no?
So, at the very bottom of this glorious molehill is a five subject Mead notebook ($4.99). I live by multi-subject notebooks because carrying around more than one gets a little confusing for me, especially considering that there are only a limited variety of colors (And Biology has to be green!) But since I've only gotten one notebook, I go for neutral colors, like black, and then draw or write on it in a metallic marker. 

Next, is this gorgeous planner, also by Mead (not found online, but $7.99 in stores), a coincidence I've only just become aware of. I require a planner to keep my life in order, but the boring ones my school provides give me little inspiration to get anything done, so I buy my own. This one is weekly and monthly, so I can get a big picture, but also narrow it down day-by-day. This is crucial for reminding me about assignments and tests. For really important deadlines, I write them down and create a reminder in my iPhone. I severely recommend this because you never know when you get caught up and a little something slips your mind. 

The blue Post Its are for those quick moments where you have to jot down an assignment. There's no time to pull the entire planner out and flip to the correct page. Later, I write the assignments on the post it into my planner. The post its are allowed to be messy, whereas I like to keep my planner perfectly neat. Besides, by rewriting the assignment it helps me remember it. The Post Its I bought were part of the brand's "Colors of the World" edition. I (obviously) bought the New York City ones ($4.99). When I bought them, however, I was under the impression that they had the NYC skyline printed on each one...but they don't. They're simply in "NYC Colors": yellow for cabs, gray for the industry, and blue for the miles of sky. 

My pencil case is actually a makeup bag from Forever 21. I purchased it on sale at the beginning of the fall semester. It's simple, small, and fits everything I need inside. Not to mention, it is a really pretty neon coral. 

As far as pencils, I'm pretty liberal. Anything can get the job done, really. I do tend to write with a heavy hand, so 0.9 lead or wooden pencils work best. These are 0.9. In the eleventh grade, my English teacher said that he would rewrite his notes for each subject in a different color ink. That way, he associated certain things with certain colors and it helped him on tests. That was enough for me to adopt the practice. I don't always rewrite my notes, however, just the parts I need to study for a test. Lastly, I have an eraser because Lord knows I make a lot of mistakes. 

Do you have any study inspiration?
