The Transcription of RP – Suggestions for In-Class Activities

If students do not feel confident in any of these areas, we recommend to visit the respective elearning units on the virtual linguistics campus here there are phoneme and phonetic transcription or to consult our electors in this YouTube blog now, in particular, the e lectures about the phoneme And phonetic transcription this background knowledge is necessary for the goals of this in class meeting.

The particular prerequisite for this in class meeting is that students have worked through the unit, the transcription of received pronunciation, including the election English in England, in accordance with our inverted classroom model. As a starting point for this particular in-class meeting, I suggest to clarify the terminology that is used to define the standard pronunciation of the English language in England, the heartland of the English language.

In doing this, I will be supported by a first-term student of our seminar and Nina Eichmann hi. Elena Anna Nina will first of all discuss with me the central definitions so uh Nina in defining the standard of the pronunciation of English in England. What sort of terms have you come across? Well, I’ve come across the term British English. Okay. Can you write it down and abbreviate English by a capital ease of British English is a term that is often used anything else.

Yes, that’s Oxford, English and Queen’s English. Okay, now, while Annina is writing down these terms, let me say something about it: British English is a head term for the reference variety that we use in teaching and learning English. However, it mainly refers to the standards in orthography, in the syntax, in the morphology and in the vocabulary of English, so it is a head term rather than a term used for the pronunciation of English, Oxford, English and Queen’s English.

Well, Oxford English implies that this English is spoken in Oxford. Isn’t it well and Queen’s English implies that only the Queen uses it, so there are no suitable terms for the pronunciation of English, so rather we should use something else, and the term that is used is in fact called received. Pronunciation, okay, received pronunciation. Now the term received pronunciation has, for many years been used to refer to the type of English, which is the one that is accepted by the best society.

Rp is also the accent that Americans and possibly other foreigners would probably refer to, as the typical British accent. Sometimes it is also referred to under the terms BBC, English public, school, English or even Standard English, so it is neither a regional nor a personal but a socially accepted type of Standard English. By the way, you can compare this with the standard accent that is used in your own country.

We are both speakers of German, so in German, we have a similar situation where the standard is social rather than regional, in character. Okay, after this first introduction to the term, received pronunciation. Let’s now practice – and you know you dealt with the e-learning unit – we, you should be familiar with it. You read the article and you pass the graded worksheet by the way, with an excellent result where you had to transcribe some RP words, and this is now our first practice, so I will produce some nonsense words.

Nonsense. Words are always very good because they do not distract you from the orthography okay. So now here are the words in you. Please transcribe. These words here is the first one. Do it do it? Okay, next one is razz razz good. Then we have kind kind. Okay, the fourth one is should-should and the last one in this series is Jacques, Jacques. Okay, so perhaps you’ve tried the same thing. You can now compare an inner solutions with yours, and here are the model solutions and, as you can see, there are only well only two mistakes.

I think the first one is, of course, where Annina use the wrong vowel here this should be. What would you call this vowel? Oh, that’s the swab, the schwa, okay, so schwa and the second mistake. Well, there’s no further mistake, perfect good solution so now this explains why she did the worksheet so well and now, let’s take another series, some longer complex nonsense words. This is now very hard, and here is the first one Castillo Castillo Castillo, yes, and he now is inserting a stress mark.

You know when words have several syllables, you have to use a stress mark tostito. Okay, again, you can try yourself and later we will look at the model solutions. Now, here’s number two did Sheila did, Sheila did Fila looks, good, did, Sheila did thela and the last one is, must heed or must heed or must heed or must heed or Musti door? Yes, fantastic. Only one mistake I can see. Perhaps if you look at it, you can see yourself.

This symbol here would be more mostly door, oh and it is not used in RP at all. So this would be the solution. Well, let’s look at the solutions here they are. The rest is OK again. It’s always useful if you address particular letters, particular letters. So this is a letter here which has a particular name, this symbol. Well, I think that’s the whet the wedge, okay and earlier on in the previous exercise.

We have this symbol. What is it called and that’s the S the ash, so we have three characters which we can address by name the wedge: the ashen through. Ah it’s much simpler than to talk about transcription. Okay before we now turn our attention to the sound system of RP. Let’s repeat the differences between an arrow and a broad transcription here is a sentence I used in the e lecture about the phoneme Liz played with Paul.

So let’s transcribe, this sentence in two versions, narrow and broad – are Nina. How are these systems represented? First of all? Well, in the narrow system, you use the angular brackets, and here we use slashes the slashes okay excellent. Now I mean I didn’t know that I’m wiping this off, because I’ve prepared something, but it doesn’t matter. So this is what I prepared, and here are, of course, the right brackets or your answer was perfect.

Now I want to make life a little bit simpler in class. Of course, I would do the whole thing, the transcription, together with my students, so in both cases we have some symbols that are absolutely identical, and these are the ones are represented in black here now. Let us now write down the two different versions and let us look at the differences, perhaps the lateral consonants first. So what about the first? Let’s look at the narrow transcription first, what about the first law as in Liz? Well, I think in is it snow? Well, so to say normal because it’s palatalized palatalized or yes, you use the symbol for palatalization, and if you compare that with the law in Paul well any alveolar lateral here, yeah Paul.

I think it’s penalized realized very good. Okay and then we have another alveolar lateral. In played, which is preceded by /, yes, so what about that? One? Because / is D voiced. I think the L is also D voice. Okay, so you can add the / now in front of yes laid okay, and then we have another cut in Paul. What about that /? That part is aspirated, okay, very good, and now we have excluding the stress mark Liz played with Paul pups.

You can insert a stress mark here. We have an arrow transcription and if we compare that with the broad phonemic transcription, we simply have well the same symbol: the phone. Yes, we don’t have allophones okay played with Paul perfect, so Annina has understood the difference between narrow and broad transcriptions. I hope you so it is the broad phonemic transcription that is predominantly used for the transcription of RP and the most popular one is the one used in John Wells wrongman pronouncing dictionary, and for this reason it is abbreviated as Ltd transcription long run, pronouncing dictionary transcription.

So let us now turn our attention to the sound system of received pronunciation here. It is let’s first of all list the inventory itself. How many phonemes that does RP have RP has got 44 phonemes 44 phonemes, and they can be subdivided into vowels and consonants. How many vowels xx and consonants 24? Okay great and now we only need the monophthongs and diphthongs we’ve got twelve one of thongs an age difference: okay, very good.

So this is then really the inventory itself, the 44 phonemes. And since the next unit of this class will be about American English and the consonantal systems of both varieties of English are very much similar. Let us concentrate on the bowels of our pee first okay and Nina. How can the vowels of received pronunciation be subdivided in the monophthongs? Sorry the monophthongs? Well, I think we’ve got long and we’ve got sort one of tongues.

Mm-Hmm. Okay, now length is a little bit critical. Isn’t it well? I don’t think whether it really plays a role. Okay and okay, so she was a little bit informed about this. What we’re doing now! So what I do in class at this point is, I present the following four words and here they are see, seat, SID and sit. So, let’s listen. I recorded see seat Sid SID now on you know. The first two are normally transcribed with a long, Eva, Eva, the colon and the second set with a shorty in hearing them.

What would you say? Which one is the longest? Well, I think the longest is C. Okay, so that’s our number one, the longest and the shortest. I think. That’s it okay and then number two and three would be well. I think like this okay, so this is what we all would probably say without performing a so called spectrographic analysis which you can’t can find here. So what I did. I used an audio program in class recorded the sounds and then showed this result to the students, and here you can clearly see in the frames which contain the vowels that now we have a different situation.

Yes, this one is still the longest, but now there is that one Sid is the second longest number three is seat and number four is sit, and now you can see that strictly speaking, length is not a decisive factor at all. Rather, it is a matter of tens versus lakhs or a distribution, for example the most of the short vowels, and this is a distributional effect. Most of the short vowels only occur in closed syllables.

That is, they need a consonant that has to follow. The schwa occurs in unstressed position and the e is a little bit critical as a language change going on where many people would now say City instead of City, but we still use the length Marc. Yes, we do and why well, it is perhaps a special indicator for the prolongation of vowels, which is useful for the language learner. After all, there are many languages which do not have long vowels at all.

So if you’re learning English and you see these links, symbols you might be tempted to make them longer and that’s not too bad for the language learner. Okay, the diphthongs here are the eight diphthongs. How can we subdivide these dipthongs? Well, we’ve got in gliding and adding different tongues. Okay, can you mark the in gliding ones? Yes, I think these three okay, so these are the in gliding diphthongs.

Now some students often complain about all this terminology. Why do I have to remember all these terms, but these terms help in a systematic classification of the sound systems of languages. In the case of our PD thumbs, we can say that the whole class doesn’t exist in American English. Why not? Well, I think that our the in glaring ones, because they can all be found in context with the final or choker orthographical are and in American English.

This comes out as a man of throne plus earth. So here we have some words here. There ensure in British English, with a with an implied indifferent in American English, here, they’re unsure, okay, now the final part of this session should be dedicated to the discussion of transcription to practicing a good exercise would be this one here, where you present your students, a Transcription result that contains a lot of mistakes and these mistakes can be of a formal kind.

So, for example, and I’ll leave that to you we’re not giving this Ellucian here, perhaps just the headline. The headline contains some mistakes, so our four lettered friends, where are the main mistakes? Annina? Well, I think because, as you know, if, whereas you just have said the art, isn’t there and mercy pronunciation, so we get rid of that. Yes, and here has to be the SWOT, I think grateful occurred.

Yes, and this is normal II friends. Yes, I’m salon is not used in RP. Ok, I think here when you thanks mark yes for the difference. Sometimes we have trouble writing here, but it’s we all know. It must be this. This vowel in the first case, so our four lettered friends well and you can do the rest at home. Finally, depending on the time you have in class, you could present your students with a transcription exercise, give them a text, give them five minutes.

Let them do the transcription and eventually show them the results, and of course they can do. The rest at home then continue at home, and this could be a nice homework too. But you know, according to the inverted classroom model, you don’t have real homeworks. We do everything in class, okay, let’s summarize well after this in class meeting and the e-learning unit, the sound system of RP prior to it, everyone should not only be able to list and classify the RP phonemes, but also to transcribe RP words in simple phrases: the Transcription of connected speech might still be a problem, but that does not matter at this point.

We will tackle that in the unit present-day English connected speech and in the respective a lecture. So let us stop here, but not without reminding the students to finish the last two tasks: the corrections of errors and the completion of the transcription. The solutions by the way can be found on the virtual linguistics campus. So thank you all for your patience. Thank you very much’, Nina for your support, just-just.

She said that’s bye-bye in German, okay, that’s it for now!

Teacher Lesson Planner 2019/2020 | Erin Condren #ECSquad

Thank You, Torian Sam and the team over it Erin Condren for sending all of these goodies to me when you are reading this. It is teacher lesson planner day launch day, so all the links are going to be below if you would like to check them out. So I haven’t opened this yet I just opened up the box.

Cuz y’all don’t need to know my address, but in the very top it has some of these new kaleidoscope pattern. I haven’t seen these yet so I’m very excited about that. So this is happy everything. It’s like the little post, it post it no post card and then these seals I always keep the seals. I rarely keep these just because I don’t really use them, but love that they come in the new pattern, and this is all the teacher stuff, I’m so jazzed.

Okay, let me try to take this all out and then we’ll like go from there. Oh, my gosh, so much Bilbo Reb. Oh all, right, move The Box out of the way we look at all that. Oh, it’s so cute! Alright, let’s open this bad boy up! Oh wow! Look at all the goodies! Okay, let’s go through this one by one! So I have seen people already post about this on Instagram and blogs, and things like that. I will leave some links down below if you guys want to see, maybe what some other people got or other people’s thoughts on certain things, so anyways um.

This is the plan T pack, and this is in a pattern that came out last year. I believe it does have that metallic mist to it and it’s got a gold zip, which I love. You can see it a little bit better if you guys want to know the actual size. It is a 5.25 by eight inches yeah, it’s so cute. I just think these are so much fun. I will show it on the planner and in just a few minutes. Next up we have this metallic washi tape duo and it’s 216 foot rolls.

I pull this out for y’all, so you can see it. I have heard that this is actual washi tape and not the paper tape that has happened in years past. Oh yeah, it’s actual washi tape, oh yeah, yeah cool! Oh I’m excited for that. Okay, those are really cute. These are like the little watercolor apples with the asterisks inside of them. Also, these are apples with asterisks inside of them too, but they’re, just like the gold foil they’re.

So nice, okay, love these. This is so cute. I know last year I think in the last couple of years, they’ve actually had the stylized sticky notes in a like teacher or student version, and I love that this one is so kind of plain. You can make it your own, and this has like a long to-do list which is kind of awesome, too little stickies and then like a big circle. This one says: don’t forget, and you know a smaller little box here and then this would just like the little paperclip I feel like anyone could use these.

That’s really nice and I will show these in the planner in just a moment. I’m just kind of like putting the things up to the side, and then this is a petite journal, but I’ve seen the inside of this, and I think it’s really interesting so like let’s take a peek at it. It is in the hexagon pattern, which I always think is like the bumblebee pattern, because it looks like honeycomb, but in the gold foil it says successful people are simply those with successful habits.

Those like a habit, tracker, so yeah and then this would fit in your on-the-go folio if you have that off camera hold on. I have this. This is like my little monthly planner for 2019 that I love. They are the exact same size. So if you have a petite planner, you could totally use this or you could just like very easily slip this into your bag or whatever. But I like that it is small and cute, and it’s got that metallic foiling.

I hope you guys can see that sometimes on camera things look a little funky so anyway, this is so cool all right and then it’s like all trackers y’all like this is kind of Awesome. So if you’re someone that likes to track anything in your life, you don’t have to be a student, you don’t have to be a teacher. This would be amazing. It also has like a little dotted line. It’s not perforated, but it is a dotted line.

So if you want to keep the same habits but then like every single week like tear off the page, you totally could and then it is on the opposite side as well, which is great because then you’re like utilizing all the papers. So I love that and I love that there are seven of these. You could use them for every single day of the week or whatever. But this is, I don’t know what I’m going to use this for, but I feel like I could use this for something good.

I don’t know, but I feel like I could, but anyway but yeah you could fill it up with as many habits trackers whatever. But you could track anything in here which is awesome. You could even do this for like some of your finances and stuff like that, would be pretty awesome. I don’t know just you could use so many things for this, so I’m really pumped about this little book here and then next we have the designer sticker book classroom collection, edition 3.

This is like their normal sticker books. Last year they had the like the pad that kind of like opened up, and I have that – and I love that – and I still use it from time to time, because you know I work in an office. So I think it’s great for anyone in an office. But let’s look up the school stuff. These are pretty. I just really like this kind of like underlay, of like this tone on tone. I don’t know I’m just like a huge fan.

These are nice this I like this. If you all know me and have seen any of my plan with me articles and I’m sorry, I haven’t been like posting them, but I actually have a plan with me article coming up this week. So like stay tuned, it’s going to be like a different plan with me, but anyways y’all know that I don’t track. I mean I track things, but I’m not like a habit tracker person in my planner like I don’t track my water and I don’t track.

You know spending in my personal planner and like the things that I show on the Internet, I don’t know, but I think this would be so cute. I don’t know why, like this sings to me for some reason, mmm so yeah, I don’t know. I saw this on someone’s post. I think it was gen McIntosh. I saw this on one of her post and I was like. I need all of those. I don’t know why, but I need them, so this would even be cute like on your monthly cuz.

It has like five columns so sometimes there’s five weeks in a month. That would be really cool like track if you’re wan na know track something for other months. Oh no, I just thought. Okay, I’m going to stop talking about that page and then now we have some metallic apples and some like little tabby things. Some of these things you probably wouldn’t use so like I probably wouldn’t use like 50th day a hundredth day and last day.

Unless I don’t know somehow, I was tracking something like personal for myself. Most of these you can totally use like reminder. I can use that assembly – probably not but maybe conference, maybe a field trip. I probably wouldn’t use important. Definitely I could use and take note. Definitely I can use, and then there are some really cute little flags, and this has like a little paperclip metallic on there, so nice, and then these are just days of the week, which was very cool ooh.

I saw this and I was like yes please. These are transparent, so you can put them in the planner which is kind of cool or mean you could put them anywhere, but yeah, and then we’ve got some washi strips and then this I’m excited about, because I have used a bunch of these in the old Sticker book and I’m really glad that it have more now, because I you know I am one of the people in my office that actually doesn’t go to a lot of meetings.

I mean there’s like multiple meetings a day for people and I’m so thankful that I don’t have to go to all the meetings, because I’m kind of like an intermediary, someone that doesn’t have to deal with like the pre-planning stuff and someone that doesn’t have to deal With like the end of the order stuff, I’m kind of in the middle, so I don’t have too much to do with having a meeting of the minds of thing, but there are some things I have to do for meetings, but I love these stickers.

I think they’re so pretty. I love the colors this year, so nice here’s another transparent sheet with some different icons, which is really nice another transparent sheet – and you know some of these – have like rapport. Do after school break no school like all. These are break-in no school like it probably wouldn’t use those, but there is like a staff meeting. I could use that to do report. Do I could use that? Sometimes we do testing, which is actually something I do don’t forget and then like a bunch of icons and just cute little things.

So that is the sticker book, I’m so excited and then next up we have the metallic mini snap-in bookmarks. I was super confused when I did my life planner launch day article. I hope, throw it up in a card for you guys. My thing said metallic and it wasn’t metallic, but this one is metallic, so I don’t know. I just think it was like different packaging that it was in because I was like they’re not metallic, but it says metallic, I’m confused, so anyways umm.

So there is a three-set here. We’ve got like the teal. We’ve got like a darker Navy and then we’ve got a like. I don’t know, I don’t think it’s red. I think it’s more of that pink, it’s more like this color here, but these are so nice. I love these. These are like my favorite favorite thing for cutting washi, and then we have. This teacher weekly dashboard says clip it in check it off plan it out.

Well, okay, then alright, and then we have a Monday through Sunday Saturday. I don’t know I need to open this. Hang on, I swear like half of the footage is always me just like opening things. Oh cool, alright, so you’ve got Monday Tuesday, Wednesday Thursday Friday, and then you have a Saturday and Sunday and then you have a before school after school. This would be great for just anyone that has kids.

To be honest, you could do like your meal plans and like before school after school, chores or tasks that they need to get done before. Like you know, parents get home and all that kind of stuff. That’s cool and then you’ve got kind of six little sections here and it says: forget the mistakes. Remember the lessons in like a very light, lined right here. So you know if you have notes about upcoming things or whatever.

I think this would be really nice, and this is life planner sighs, so it clearly would fit in a regular. You know Erin Condren life planner, which I actually have my Erin Condren life planner for 2019 2020 right here and I could easily just snap this sucker in I’m not going to do it at the moment. But I could do it all right. Here’s the piece de resistance, let me clear some stuff out of the way and then and then we’ll get to it, y’all all right here it is oh, this is so beautiful.

Okay, first off the teacher lesson planners are larger than the regular life planner and let me show you the difference. It also comes with this awesome bookmark, which also came with this planner as well, so I’m going to just do edge on edge. This is the sizing difference. So if you are interested, that’s the difference, the coil, I don’t know it seems a little bit yeah. The coil feels like it’s a little bit bigger.

Let’s see if you guys can see yeah, it seems a little bit. Bigger y’all like in the monitor, actually looks a lot bigger, but in person it just looks a little bit bigger. So I like that, because there’s a lot of pages in this thing, so clearly you can pull this off and put it anywhere. You want or just keep them off. I like to keep mine off. Just I don’t know personal preference. This is a really beautiful cover.

This year there was a couple of different new covers for the school line, and I picked this one. I thought this was so nice. You can obviously personalize it. I don’t like to personalize anything as you guys can see with this one. I didn’t personalize it at all, so, let’s dive into it. Oh this is so nice. Okay, let me here we go alright cool. I still making sure you guys are as centered as possible on this side is always a little dashboard area where you can use your wet erase markers and then you just hop in to the planner and then this is the teacher lesson planner.

This book belongs to the paper is still the Mohawk paper, it feels very nice and then they have an informational page. It says all about me: classroom information resources, name school year, email, phone address, classroom resources, website and passwords, and then over here we have events and volunteers, classroom, volunteers and contact information and then classroom events and date, information and I’m sure y’all are wondering like.

Why do I have this planner? Well, I’m kind of toying with the idea of using this for something, but if I’m using it I will share. However, I did read Jen from Jen plans, her blog or links, or something will be below for her. She did like an open box of her PR kit from Erin Condren and she is going to be. I don’t know if she is already like a scout leader, but she is going to be a scout leader this upcoming year and she was going to be using it for this and then possibly some other things, and I just thought that was like an awesome idea, Because there’s so many ways you can utilize this to really fit for your lifestyle, and you don’t have to be a teacher.

You can. You can be a student, you can be a parent, you can work with other organizations that maybe you just want that schedule totally separate from your personal schedule in your life planner or whatever kind of planner you use so anyway yeah. So I just wanted to address that because I’m sure y’all are like what the heck all right. So we have this contact tab and we have a communication. Log date name reason, slash resolved and then another one right here with a tab and it says 2019 2020 and then we have our year at a glance or our half year at a glance and then our full 2020 at a glance which is awesome.

And then we have our tab that says of your plan, so this kind of gives you, like a big overview, that you can maybe write some key points in or goal setting or whatever you’d like to do for your year plan. We also have a graph. This is purdy-like big old graph pieces of paper, and I think that there might be a couple in here. There are a few in here and then also we have some lined pages and then this page says that you can learn something new every day.

If you listen, isn’t that true and then dates to remember in July, so there is looks like a couple pages before every months you can write notes or follow-ups or whatever this page here is kind of the same as the old life planners, where it’s like thicker. If that makes sense, which is the tabbed page, then this page like this – it’s always like a little bit of a like thicker, almost feels like cardstock, but it’s not cardstock, and then here is july 2019, very subtle, tone-on-tone.

A coloration also has the next upcoming month. On the side, I love love, love that that is so nice and then you have Monday through Friday in here with another column as well, and then columns kind of going down. Also, you have a big section right here that you could use some of your stickers in so like some of these could fit right in there if you’ve got certain lessons or certain tasks or something that you would want to put in there, which is great, and Then you know it just kind of goes from there.

So here is July. Let’s go to August because I mean it’s going to be like they’re, so redundant yeah. So before the month you have two pages, basically a page, a little more than a page and a half of lined lined paper, basically and then dates to remember in August. So if you’ve got events coming up or birthdays anniversaries, no school early dismissals things like that, you can always write them in there and then so far yeah.

I really like this. Okay, I don’t want to go through the whole thing because, like y’all are probably bored by this points so anyway, the planner does go from, let’s see here July through July, so we have a full month. Okay, oh this is nice okay, so you have a full month of july 2019 in here, which is great, so you have your monthly page and all your weekly is, and then this gives me July 2020 as well, and also with my little August 2020 here and Let’s see so, we’ve got the first week or like the end of June, into the first week of July and then the first full week of July here to kind of tide you over until the next planner, which is awesome.

Then we have a little tab here. That says checklist, which is a nice piece of paper that has its like that cardstock e1 still cuz, it’s got the little Chucky tabs on there, so I’ve got a nice line piece of paper and then over here. This is where the checklists live. Oh, my gosh. This is so pretty very similar. This is called the student checklist, but it’s very similar to this I feel like this could be used really well for personal goals or whatever.

But so anyway, you can put the names and you can put assignments whatever you’d like, and it also says fold or cut along this dotted line. So you can fold or cut because if you’ve got the same students over and over, you can just do this and then you know it’s the same line for the same student, but you know more assignments if that makes sense. So you’ve got quite a few pages of these. I just love this.

Like light pastel vibe going on, I really like that. I believe that there are some customizations where you can customize like how many pages you get of certain things and whatnot, so that information will be on the website on the launch day. I’m really not a hundred percent sure on that. So anyway, and then there are some sticker sheets, because I mean it wouldn’t be an Erin Condren planner without some sticker sheets.

Okay. So then we have this metallic foiled. One we’ve got some other, really fun ones. There’s like field trip, take note conference assembly reminder. I could use some of these probably not field trip, but I could use some of them like great job big day. I can give myself like a great job Apple one of these days, and then we’ve got some more okay. My camera just cut off because I’ve been talking too much um, don’t know where I was, but I think I was still looking at stickers and then on this page.

We’ve got some more of those little tabs and some more a little like small boxes and washi strips and then we’ve got some cute little boxes and then we’ve got the back pocket, which is huge by the way and then the pocket on the back. And I must say I totally forgot in my planner article when I did the Erin Condren life planner, to talk about the back pocket. Remember how it used to be that little dinky pocket that, like nothing ever fit in, I’m so glad that they have the big pocket on the back and the front.

Now because I feel like you couldn’t fit, you know stuff in there yeah it has it on this side too, but I love that they did that with the teacher lesson planner as well all right up next, oh my god, I’m so excited about these two um. There are some stickers I mean stickers are like life right guys, so this has the coordinating colors, and this is july. 2019. Let me actually like zoom you in a little bit, so you can see this a little bit better.

These are some of the holidays. Already pre-printed, this looks like it comes with the planner, so we’ve got lots of different things like Labor Day, Grandparents Day International Literacy Day Patriot day like it just has a whole bunch of other things in here has a bunch of blank ones too. So if you want to write your own, you totally can and then we’ve just got like all the months going on. Oh, oh did I get two sets.

Oh no, I just ended up getting two of the sheet weird. I I’m sure that you’re supposed to just get two sheets out. Let me zoom you guys back out. Cuz things are getting weird: okay cool. I ended up getting two of this sheet. I think you’re just supposed to get one of each, because that just seems kind of silly, okay cool. Let me move that over here. Also, you have options with this clear pocket as well.

You can put things in there like invitations or other things that you would need to put in there. I’m not sure, but there are, I believe, options with that and then the last page is also this nice. Blank area that you can write things in and then the back cover alright, I said I was going to show you guys this tape and I’m going to do that right now. So let me get some paper yah all right, I’m just going to use this like graph side paper and then I’m going to show you how these fit as well.

I’m going to use one of my little stylized, sticky notes or nonstick. You know. So. I’m sorry snapping book words. It’s been a long day at work. You guys to cut my washi and you know I got to start at the end here. Let’s take a peek ooh. It like rolls out really nice guys, really nice cool, all right, I’m trying to get it straight. I feel I feel the pressure from the internet to make it straight. Okay, cut the washi yeah yeah, okay, that laid out really nice, and this looks so pretty.

I feel, like you know, you don’t have to be a student or a teacher, to love this planner and to love all of these things. I mean you could just like really like apples. You know fun fact I actually eat applesauce almost every morning. For my breakfast, no, that’s like a really random fact, but it’s true all right and this beautiful gold foil, so nice and company was she nice. This looks so cute, oh okay, I’m going to stop being weird, I mean, but I guess I am where didn’t you guys already know that so whatever okay? So this is what it all looks like laid down with the washi and let me get to a monthly page.

I’m also going to do this on a weekly, so y’all can see the sizing and things like that. So we’ve got our to do and I’m going to try to get as close as I can in a corner. So you can see you know, sizing and stuff like that. So this goes over just slightly here I don’t know. Just kind of count depends on how you like it there we go. I want to do one like this as well, so you can see these ones are like almost sticky all the way through.

Okay, that took me a moment all right, actually very cool and then the don’t forget which is like my favorite one, because you would think that I’m like this planner person, that is like really unforgettable, I kind of am forgetful, sometimes so yeah. This is how it looks on the month view of the teacher lesson. Planner, and here is the weekly and clearly these are going to be a little bit smaller, but like the these, little dudes are going to be a little bit smaller.

But I feel like that’s totally alright, because what I use the sticky notes for to be completely transparent, as usually I don’t pre-plan any more. What I end up doing is sharing my planner and everything like that after the fact, just for some security reasons and things like that, however, I use these little post-its as like little markers for like oh, my work schedule, or I did this after work or I Had this appointment or whatever it is, you know I just love using these little sticky notes and they’re.

So nice and I must say the woven wonder, pattern one. Last year, the stickiness, I don’t know what happened but like it really encountered up their game for sure. With those – and I have to say I’m so glad to report that these are the same stickiness those and the new kaleidoscope pattern of the stylized sticky notes are also the same adhesiveness. So I’m just very excited about that because in years past they just for me haven’t been as good, so I just hadn’t had like a great experience with them, but now I’m in love with them they’re.

So nice, oh man, be helpful. If I can like actually lay this down properly so yeah, this is what it looks like in the weekly and I know, y’all are probably chomping at the bit going Emily. Why don’t you put them in the life planner? So we can see that too, and I’m like you know, I hear I’m here for you, okay, so let’s put it in the life planner as well, so we can see just how well this is. You know how well it goes um.

I think I don’t know for sure, because I’m you know don’t know the measurements and stuff. I clearly have an hourly planner, but the hourly planner is just slightly wider in the boxes, then the vertical. So I am assuming I don’t know for sure cuz. I don’t have a vertical with me, but I’m assuming that these fit the vertical perfectly, but I could totally be mistaken. This will clearly not fit so I’m just going to put that over there, alright, but yeah.

I think these are just so huge and I just I’m really liking the direction that Erin Condren is going, and I know some people are going to think like. Oh, you just say that, because you get sent stuff for free, you know if y’all haven’t noticed and I don’t mean to sound, not grateful or anything, but I used to do posts for a lot of different planner companies that, to be honest, I didn’t use, and I did it be for the sake of a article and I’m just trying to be like super transparent with you guys right now, and I’m kind of done doing that.

I really want to produce content that I would want to read and things that I’m passionate about and things that I think that you would be passionate about. I have gotten so many questions about the teacher lesson planner recently and when I was offered this collaboration, I was like absolutely I’ve had so many comments and so many questions about the teacher lesson planner. I need to show my audience like.

I was just so excited and they know that I’m not a teacher or a student or have kids or any of that like they’re, fully aware, but my audience does and I want to share with you guys this stuff, so you can make your own opinions so Anyway, that’s my little tangent. Sorry, I’m like going a little off on tangents today, but yeah. That’s the whole point of like sharing these articles before things launch, so you guys can make an informed choice and also maybe get some perspective from me as a single working person, and maybe some things I would use it for versus.

You know what you might use it for in your life and maybe it’s the same thing. Maybe it’s something totally different, but that’s what I love about planning and some of these products is that you can really make them your own. So anyway, let’s get back to this because sorry, but this is everything in the our lease – you can kind of see how it all goes. But yes, I’m so excited about that, and I wanted to show you the plan.

I pack on this because there’s been a lot of questions about it and I have actually seen people on the interwebs put this on there and, to be honest, this probably doesn’t like go the best, but we’re going to go for it anyway. I have seen some people put this on here and I am going to show you guys, I’m just going to like keep the film roll in and I’m going to show you exactly how difficult this is.

You can put it on there, but it is very, very tight. Like all I need it’s very stretched to the max, so you could probably put some flatter things in here. I think I just don’t think you could put anything of like real bulk in here. Just with it like that, and I just don’t know if it would, you know permanently kind of curl your cover. She just can see it’s kind of curling the cover like that, but somebody out there was a genius and I don’t know who that somebody was.

But I did see it on Instagram and I was like this is amazing. They put it this way. I’m like oh snap, like somebody out there was thinking. So, oh sorry, it’s like next to my body here. Sorry, I’m not really showing you guys very well. Okay. There we go so when you do it this way, it kind of you know goes inside the coil and that’s fine, but it also kind of acts as one of those at planar bands and then you can feel like you can fit like bigger things in there And you’re not going to like bend up your covers either.

So I don’t know that could definitely be an option for you and in the planning, packs, there’s lots of different patterns and colors. Now I know what was the one that they said. Oh, it was the really pretty kaleidoscope pattern that they had in the colorful that they had sent me there’s a neutral one which is gorgeous and there’s also some solid ones, so yeah there’s just kind of a little something for everyone and the zippers.

I must tell you are really really nice like they don’t skip or anything. I’ve had really good luck with Erin Condren zippers randomly, but I like kind of a zipper snub. You guys are learning like way too much about me. Oh, the back of it is like this pretty like hot, pink, fuchsia color as well. Oh and the inside is as well. I don’t know if I showed you that I’m sorry i’m a bad reviewer alright, so that is going to be it for my open box of the teacher lesson planner for erin condren at 2019 through 2020 again, links are below for y’all.

If you’re interested in this planner or anything else that they have to sell on their website, there are some links down below. One of them is for first-timers if you’ve never purchased anything for erin condren. There is a special link for you, which is $ 10 off of your first purchase. You sign up for an account on air encounter comm and then we’ll send you a couple of different emails and one is going to be a $ 10 off of your first order.

Coupon so make sure to look out for that, and then there’s also another link down below to the erin condren website for people that already have an account. That’s an affiliate link. It really helps me out if you guys end up using that for your order or any order that you place. Your order is not more expensive because you use that or anything like that. I think that’s a lot of miscommunication from other brands that may or may not do that I mean I don’t know, but all it does is let Erin Condren comm know that I sent you there and then I receive a small commission for that.

So thank you to everyone. That’s used it and thank you to anyone that will use it in the future. I really really appreciate it and so does Doyle, because it goes towards his kibble and bacon budget.

2019/2020 Academic Planner | Erin Condren

I remember the academic planner back in the day when it was like bound like it wasn’t in a coil. Do you guys remember that anyway? I do. However, first things first, thank you so much the Erin Condren team for sending me this.

I really appreciate it and I want to share this with you and do a little flip through. So let’s talk about the Erin Condren planner, first of all, these retail for $ 37 and that’s without any upgrades. I believe that the coils are ten dollars additional for the different color coils. I am a fan. I got the Platinum coil so that one is actually included in there. Your calendar options it’s a 12 month planner, but you can choose August through July September, through August and then also January through December, just depending on how your school year works, or some people use the academic planner just like for their daily life as well.

You can also personalize your cover and do all of those things, and I believe that the only option for the insides is colorful. When I ordered mine, I didn’t have an option for colorful or neutral, so that could be a part of that so anyway, let’s flip her open and take a little peek. This is also a 7 by 9 planner. Here’s, my planner, I am currently using. So it’s the same, it’s the same and the coil size is exactly the same as this one.

This one, this one’s seen better days, cuz, it’s really full anyway. So this is the academic planner, oh yeah, I got August through July. I could not remember which one I ordered oopsie, there’s also a spot for your name school and then we’ve got 2009 or end of 2019 here and then 2020, and this has a little projects tab. So here’s your projects – oh, this – is really pretty well. I kind of like this.

I know a lot of people use this for work as well, especially if they have projects and things like that. I don’t work in an environment where I have projects I work on for a long time once they get to my desk, then I’m usually done with them with day. So I don’t have like long progressive projects, but if you’re like a project manager or someone that has ongoing projects throughout the year, this would actually be a really cool planner for you to have at work.

But anyway, this has a projects and exams or you could just do projects a description. It says class and then details. This could be just like the project name and then details, there’s deadlines, important date and then like a little completed, checkbox, which is also very satisfying. So there’s quite a few on here, so there’s three and three and then we’ve got some more pages and more pages. These are cool, it’d, be kind of cool just to have like this is just me thinking um.

It would be kind of cool to have just a planner or like a notebook that has just these pages in it, like just projects and exams, or just something like that. That would actually be really cool because y’all know if you’re in school you’ve got way more projects and exams in a year than this typically so actually be really cool anyway. So now we are in to the planner. So we’ve got our August tab here and then we have a notes page.

It’s lined with little like kind of rainbow color watercolor thing I don’t cool alright and then we’ve got August, which let me see where my planner is for 2020. Give me a second: I want to see what it looks like compared to this alright, so this is the planner I’m actually going to be using starting this upcoming July, which it might be July by the time you see this, I’m not really sure so, but I Want to go to the monthly page and see how different it looks or does it I don’t know so.

Here’s kind of the differences so yeah. This one is like very colorful and has like you know the colorful tabs and the you know the rounded corners and things like that, and then this one is just like straight corners and still has like over here. I put this, but it still has the color blocked area as well so cool. Alright, I just wanted to see the difference and see if there was you know, huge differences or not so yeah, but love that they have the upcoming month right there.

It’s always super helpful, all right and then we have july 2019, the very end, and then we have august. So we’ve got monday tuesday wednesday to do lists, and then things are kind of broken out a little bit, Thursday Friday and then Saturday Sunday. Our two little things so again this would be great for work if you work like a normal like Monday, through Friday, type of a job and then yeah. So these are the weekly pages and just for comparison, because I have this here and if you all are debating between you know a life planner or whatever I have the hourly, but this is you know this is the difference.

Basically, you know you just got more room. I think this one just has like more room to write in it, just because your Saturday and Sunday are so small. But again, if you don’t, you know, want to put academic stuff or work stuff on Saturdays and Sundays. I don’t know, but like I used to actually work like a retail job where I had Sundays and Tuesdays off, so I would probably if I was still in that job, which I’m clearly not.

I would maybe make this like my Sunday and Tuesday and then like re-name, the days or whatever to just fit my needs, but yeah cool, oh and then at the very end you get some notes pages, which is actually really great. So you can, you know, clearly write notes or anything else that you need. You know jot down or remember so then, we’ve got September and I like that it has like the little watercolor things over there.

I think that’s really cute. Maybe they did that for like the colorful version in here, because it is quite subtle, you know, and then you know just like their little rainbow thing again and then October. So all the months are the same and I don’t want to be super redundant and go through every single month, because that would be a boring article Emily. So, let’s go to the very back in July I like to always see if they have other things in the back, because sometimes they do and sometimes they don’t so, let’s go through July and see what’s going on back here.

Okay, so we have them notes pages like normal and then okay and then it says, arriving at one goal is the start of another awesome, and then this has a bunch of the Erin Condren stickers, which are great. I I always forget that they’re in the back um, there’s ones that say exam midterm test quiz read paper: do a study group study no class vacation and then we got a couple blank ones too, which is really nice.

So that is that, and then there is my back cover so yeah. That is it for the article. I hope you guys enjoyed it. This is the academic planner for 2019 2020 from Erin Condren.

‘Cause with the Multiple sessions, all the prizes and it’s Just kind of laid back having a good time pretty much A regular just five Fish all day, tournament You’re just grinding all day, Trying to get five bites, you know, But this one. It’s like Well, if you don’t, you have eight chances to win. Oh it’s a blast. It definitely gives us An opportunity to get out and just get back To the kind of roots of why we all enjoy the sport, We get to go out and You’re, not necessarily patterning fish and worried About this big part of the tournament, as Much as you are just finding that one big one And it’s exciting because Anybody out here can do it.

[ Narrator ] We’ve got a record Field on hand this weekend There’s an unprecedented 84, collegiate campuses represented They’re all hoping to cash in On the $ 30,000 total purse For those in the hunt for Cabela’s School of the Year, this event is worth Double points They can change in The blink of an eye, Especially with a Tournament like this, where double points, and all that I mean you – can see Someone shoot up from that was never even Really in the top 20, It’s just a huge game changer.

This is by far the most Points available tournament And I think basically Catching two fish, five and a half plus will Put us probably in first [ Narrator ] Nathan, Bell Fishes for Dayton, Tennessee’s Bryan College They’re in fifth coming Into this tournament, 100 points behind The current leaders of 2016 Cabela’s Collegiate National Champions Auburn University Angler of the year Is one of the most prestigious titles In fishing in general, depending it don’t matter, Which level you’re at And then team of the Year is just basically brawning that to the whole team Yeah, So it’s extremely Important to us Last year you know we Talked about it a bunch, but we didn’t.

We didn’t Set our sights on it. The way we have this year, That’s been the biggest goal: Everybody on the team to The officers on the team we first met in Fall this past fall. We said we wanted Team of the year – And we knew we set Out a plan, a budget to figure out what We can do to even to be the most effective Throughout the season and try to get votes at Every single tournament that qualifies for The team of the year [ Narrator ] Conditions, On Kentucky Lake this week have been favorable with water and air Temps in the 60’s and the bass beginning To push shallow, But things are about to change.

A big front is due To push through And due to potential Extreme conditions tournament officials have Made the difficult decision to cancel day two of this event. It’s going to change you Know it’s been in the 60’s here lately and then it’s Going to drop down to 31 in the morning at take off so — It could just Completely shut them off, They may stay where They’re at, but I suspect, it’ll pull them back.

They’ll try to get away. From that cold water and wait for it to warm back up, It’s still going to be A slow, fast, pre fright Fish are in every position. Deep shallow, you name it. So it’s going to be an Absolute awesome event: [ Narrator ] Weather reports, Calling for winter conditions to arrive late in the day, but the snow began to Fall just before sunrise When it was done there Was more than four inches blanketing, the hills?

Erin Condren Academic Planner First Impressions | #ECAcademicCalendar #ECSquad

As you see, I have a big old erin condren box in front of me. We are going to be doing a first impressions on some of the things that are inside here, so I’m very excited to get started shout out to the Erin Condren team for sending me all the goodies that are inside of here today. We’re going to be talking mainly about the Erin Condren academic planner.

Things have changed a sense last year and I actually did a review and first impressions on the one last year. I believe it was, and I will link that up in a card for you guys, but let’s get this big box out of the way and then we’ll move on from there. This was in the bottom of the box. I don’t know what this is for, but oh you know what I do know what this is for we’re going to just leave that right there so anyways.

First things: first, when you get your lovely box from Erin Condren, they always have a little postcard. That has a really nice quote on it, and it says whatever you are be a good one and then my favorite thing is these little guys. They are really nice gift label tags or just anything tags it always says enjoy they usually are these like scalloped adhesive stickers? Well, clearly, stickers are adhesive Emily, oh man, it says to and from I’ve used these before, for giving away like candy or baked goods to like co-workers, our neighbors or friends, or something like that and just put it on like a little cell, Oh bag.

I love these. I think these are awesome and that it comes wrapped in a navy tissue paper and has the signature Erin Condren enjoy on the side here. So let’s open this guy up – and I don’t really talk about this too often but like I got ta say I love their packaging just because I have rarely gotten anything – that’s been damaged if you guys are interested in my Erin Condren playlist I’ll link it up In a card and down below for you guys very rarely do I get anything that’s actually damaged because they have such nice like packing on their stuff.

So anyway, this is all the good stuff. So let me take all this like packaging away and then we’ll talk about it. Alright, so I want to talk about everything at one by one and then we’ll get to the planner at the very end. These are the designer note card set they’re fifty aligned, three by five and note cards with a binder ring, which is this bad boy right here, and I did see some people on the interwebs talk about these and I thought these are just really unique and neat.

So it has the woven, wonder pattern, and this is one of those like erasable things like you, can use one of those markers on here and then on. The backside, there’s also like aligned, but it’s like a laminated one. So that’s really cool and then there’s also a back as well, and then you’ve got all your note cards and they all have the hole punch in them, which is pretty unique and neat. And I really really like that, and then you can just put this all together.

If I can do it right there we go. I need a little strength in the morning. I haven’t had my like caffeination yet and there you go, that’s what it looks like. So you can take notes if you’re doing a speech or, if you’re just you know wanting to take notes on a certain topic or subject or something. But you know I feel like this would be good, even if you aren’t a student and next off. I got these.

I have been hearing lots of things about them. I wanted to see them in person they’re the 12-page flags. They are all different colors and they have a little asterisk on them. I kind of was in the same boat of everyone else, where I really hoped that these would be like several of them and one like they’re, very, very, like I don’t know thick, isn’t the right thick is the right word, but they’re very glossy they’re, like a Permanent adhesive, I really wish that these were like the removable adhesive ones that, like you, know, 3m makes and stuff, because I think that would be amazing because I use those all the time.

But I mean these are really cool, just because I love the Erin Condren little asterisks as well as I love their colorway. So I’m not sure what I’m going to be using these for, but I think I will have some sort of project that will come up and well. I will use these, but again, I wanted to see them in person, and I just thought that I could use them in some way in all my planning systems. Next up is this snap-in dashboard.

That also has the woven, wonder, pattern on it and it has in foiled top priorities and then like a little checklist and then I have and then a little checklist down here and then let me open this up because there’s always fun things on the back, usually And then, let’s see yeah on the back side, it’s got Monday through Sunday, so you could put in like a meal plan or two dues or anything like that.

Also with that woven wonder pattern, which is like one of my favorite things now and of course no Erin Condren box would be it complete without sticky note, so I thought that this would be great to put in this box just because I always am running low On these sticky notes, for whatever reason I got to say, I’ve had a lot of questions on my Instagram and on my facebook as to the adhesiveness of some of the ones in the years past.

I hear you, but these ones, the new ones, the woven wonder and the teacher ones that I have sitting over here right now. These are not part of this haul, but I do have them sitting over here. These have a great adhesive stickiness to them. They don’t leave a film on your page, at least what I have noticed with the ones that I’ve gotten, but they don’t like curl up as much these ones, the new ones.

So I think that they improved some of their adhesives. I’m very very excited about that. So I just keep buying the same patterns like over and over and over and over, but I just absolutely love this pattern anyway, and I really like all of the different sizes and shapes of these notes. Next up is this designer sticker book. I know if you guys have been reading me for a little while you have seen this in a couple of months back, but I did decide to get a new one.

It’s got lots of different stickers sheets and it’s got like transparent stickers and just like regular stickers too, which I absolutely love. But this is the new sticker book for this year. The 2018-2019 season, so I’m very, very excited about this and link will be below to all the products that I’m talking about. And lastly, let’s talk about this little bundle set before we get into the planner.

This was, I think it was like called, maybe like the writing, utensil bundle. Actually, let me look it up, because you know I’m not good at things sometimes. Ah, here it is it’s the writing, essentials bundle and, as of me filming this, this is on sale for $ 25. You do get a little bit of a discount when you buy some of the bundles. So if you actually search like erin condren and like the sale tab, there’s a bunch of different bundles available.

Alright, so here are all the things that are in writing essentials bundle. This is what I was kind of talking about. These wet erase markers you could put on here and then, when they dry down, they don’t come off, but then you can just take like a little baby, wipe or actually just throw it under water and it’ll all come off with pretty good ease. But I love these things and these are the fine tip ones they do also have like thicker tipped ones.

I believe I’m not sure if they’re still in their website, but I know they’ve had them in years past these. As you know, I absolutely love the dual tip markers, I’m a fan of all of them, but I thought hey. Why not get some of these as well, I’m always looking for a black or a blue. You know what I mean. We’re always looking for that. Also this pencil set – I have never had this particular pencil set before, but it has lots of different things in here.

I think I’ve gotten some pencils in years past from like some of the seasonal surprise boxes, but I don’t think I’ve ever had these particular ones. So it’s got some of the mid-century circles. Oh they already come sharpened, for you that’s kind of cool, so it’s got two mid-century circles, one’s a watercolor and then it has some of the metallic dots. So the pink one has rose gold. The teal one has gold and this purple one has silver and then like up at the top next to their eraser.

It has like the same kind of metallic that it coordinates with so very cool and they’re, just six of them, which I live and then really the reason I wanted this is. I wanted these highlighters. I’ve never had highlighters from Erin Condren before, and I thought you know what I think it’s time to finally do this. I know they’ve had them on there like website for ever, but I’ve just never used them.

I think you know it was just. It was time guys it was finally time to do it, so let’s try it with some Erin Condren paper. I just have this sitting here. This is not part of the hall, but oh that writes nicely. They like feel they feel nice in your hand too. I was kind of worried that they’d be like a little too bulky. You know some highlighters are just like a little too thick, but these feels really nice yeah yep.

I like those those are nice. Oh, I almost forgot to mention these. These are the colorful monthly adhesive tabs. I did get these separately, but they do have like a rose gold like January February March April May June July. You know all that good stuff, because the planner that I received is not tabbed. So I thought that this would be something that I could put on the planner all right. So here is the planner.

It also comes with these colorful date, dots from Erin Condren. This is an undated planner, so they do include this typically with your purchase. I believe that this always comes with it. Don’t quote me on it, but I’m pretty sure it does the undated Nastase it flexible. So you can start and stop your planner at any time. So big changes for this year, if you guys readed my other article, that I linked up in a card earlier, you would have noticed that the other one was bound and what that means is.

It was like a not a hardbound, but it was like a soft bound. It did not have the coil, so it was a little bit different and it also was not as thick, which I am very excited to see. What’s in the guts, so it comes with a coil which is fabulous. These are 7 by 9. They fit the regular 7 by 9 covers. I chose the woven wonder pattern in the white background. I didn’t do any personalization, because I wasn’t a how-to percent sure what I was going to do with this or if I was going to gift this to somebody I wasn’t a hundred percent sure.

So I thought you know what I’m totally down with the woven Wonder. So let’s get the white one, because I love the way that this looks also to let you know that these planners start at $ 35. There is some other detailed customization that you can do, that is additional, but these are $ 35 and when you open this up on the back side is also an opportunity for the wet erase markers to kind of put in a list or something like that.

And then, on the right hand, side it says academic planner, your name school and year, and this is a 12 month planner. I believe that the previous ones that they had were only six months. If I remember right but yeah, I think this looks really nice and the paper quality is the same as the red planners so who have a regular planner. It’s that same mohawk paper that they released last season. So like 2017 2018.

And then, when you open it up, you get right into stuff, so the first page here is projects and exams. Your description, your class, the details, the deadlines, important dates and then there’s like a little check for complete, and that is very satisfying. I think so. There’s three on each page and let’s see there’s a bunch of pages in here all right, so there’s a whole bunch of these. So if you’ve got projects and exams and things you need to study for there’s a bunch of pages and then on this page here.

On the left hand, side is just a nice blank notes, pages and or notes pages. This notes page and then on the right-hand side says what you seek is seeking you and then you get into your first month. This is where your colorful date dots come into. Play so you can write up here what month it is and then also put in your date thoughts. Also, if you don’t like the date dots, you can also just write it in too it’s just kind of up to you and then once you decide what month, this will be so say it’s really an academic year for you and you want to maybe start it In August or September, depending on when your school starts, you could grab one of these little adhesive monthly tabs and put in the coordinating tab on this page.

So then, you knew kind of you know what was going on. So this is very very similar to the Erin Condren life planner, as well as the Erin Condren deluxe monthly planner. However, the only real difference is that at the bottom here there is no coordinating month before the next month because it’s undated, so let’s flip through and see okay perfect. So this is the week of and then you can write whatever you want and then Monday through Friday, in full box form and it has Monday.

And then you know like a smaller box, a bigger box and then to do checklist. And then Saturday and Sunday is a little bit smaller because they all fit on one line down here. That makes sense, so you’ve got one two three four five weeks and then you’ve got two notes: pages that are in the lined and then two more and another one so yeah and then you’re into the next month. So every month it looks like is like that.

So, let’s get into when things change, let’s see, let’s see, alright, I’m almost at the back of the planner. Let’s see, I don’t know if there’s anything extra back here, I don’t think there is. That’s alright, though, cool alright, so I’m at the very back of the planner now after the twelve months and then on the back side over here, it says, arriving at one goal is the start of another and it has some info about Erin Condren.

Oh, this is really cool, so it’s got one sticker sheet back here and it says exam midterm test quiz read paper: do study group study no class and vacation. Then it has some other blank event stickers as well for you and then after this is another one of those covers on the inside. You could use those wet erase markers as well and then on the back. Is my nice little woven wonder pattern so that is a peek inside of the new academic planner for 2018 2019.

It again is undated with no tabs, but I kind of like that idea just because it gives you a lot more flexibility to start and stop your planner whenever you’d like, and I just think this is a really great idea for students out there or anyone that Really likes this particular set up, it could be good for and then also if somebody wants to use this for work, I mean it’s got. You know the week of and then some kind of tasking things and then to do is.

I think this would be great for work as well. I mentioned that in my teacher lesson, planner review – that’s a bigger planner than this – it’s like literally bigger, but that one was a great setup for that as well. But you know this would be wonderful for work projects or work things, and things like that that you want to keep track of as well, if you’re not into any of the Erin Condren life planner layout options, and it’s got lots of notes pages.

So if you have meetings or conferences or things like that, you could take notes – and you know do all that stuff, but yeah I mean. I just think this is a really really neat planner, I’m so glad that they put 12 months in there now rather than six months. But what do you guys think of the planner? I would love to know in the comment down below, but that is going to be it for me today. I thank you guys so much for hanging out with me if you’re interested in anything from Erin Condren, the links are down below for y’all.

Thank you. So much for reading – and I will see y’all in the next one bye guys well folks – is time to kick it old school

MY 6 STREAMS OF INCOME: How I Make Money At 18

So the reason why I wanted to make this article is the other day I found an image of me having my lemonade stand at nine years old making. My coin, I feel like I was obsessed at a young age to make money, not because I was a greedy bastard and what the heck, but oh you’re, nine years old. What the heck do you know it was because I loved creating a product and seeing people’s reactions from it.

I was obsessed – okay, I literally quit high school two years ago to pursue my online business as you can see from this like mediocre background, I don’t have a ton of money, but I was able to make a full-time living off of my online business and today I’m not sure cuz how I support myself and make my money let’s get started, quickest camera. I’m very well aware that this article could come off a little bit braggy.

I don’t want to sound like that at all, like I’ve come from very humble grounds like I was not able to afford my violin lessons, I wasn’t able to afford doctor appointments like I know how hard it is to just make it by what I do want To show you guys in this article is how it’s so possible to take your passion and make a living. So I hope this article gives you that light and choosey that things are possible.

So with that being said, let’s talk about money maker number, one other than the lemonade sandwich. I don’t really count as a business just yet. My first way of making money was selling through Etsy. I use at sea in a combination with eBay, but what I would do is sell vintage dolls for 20 % more than they bought it. Actually, I think I have it right now. Let me see if I can find it literally do not judge.

I know so. Many of you guys are going to judge me for this and think I’m a freak for collecting antique dolls but uh. This is her, so it was like 2010 okay and these dolls were hot. If you guys remember Paulette dolls, please comment below cuz you’ve literally, you will be my best friend, but these pulp dolls are retail like a hundred dollars each, but I would sell them for $ 200 or three or they are always sold out.

So that is how I make my money. When I was 10 years old, I was able to make, I believe, like three hundred dollars a month by selling a doll. It was pretty good for elementary school student and I was really happy with this business because came from a passion of loving dolls and if I could share another doll with someone else, I was just super ecstatic to do so. So the pros of selling dolls or products online is that it super-fun.

I found that, like I was able to educate customers because I love the product so much. I could tell you what’s the weight of this leg? What’s the material of the hair, like I love dolls, so much that uh. I was obsessed with talking about it and that actually made me such a good marketer, because organically I was able to create a YouTube blog surrounded by dolls. So I could sell and market these products keep in mind.

This is 2010 YouTube, okay yeah, so I wasn’t so cool with the editing yet. But this is an example of some of articles I made to sell my dolls: hey guys I’ll, be selling my pull-up wigs. That I have for sale and I might be selling this – I’m not very sure, but I bought it for $ 26, but it sold out it’s in good condition. The second week I have for sale is ten dollars, no doubt about it. The cause of selling products online is it’s really not scalable.

I’m very well aware that you don’t need to scale everything, but I couldn’t sustain this business because it required you to buy like all these products ship out yourself – and I just didn’t have that time, because I was a kid so yeah. That is the cons. But I really genuinely enjoyed my career in this field. Literally guys go to your closet, find antique toys that you have and your kid pop it into eBay, and you can actually see what are people selling it for and how much lower can you sell it for and it’s really easy to turn a profit just based On products you have at home all right to drop shipping.

So when I was 10 years old, I basically was like fuck this shit. I want to sell other products than dolls and I turned to Alibaba. So during this time of YouTube, it was like the kawaii age, for basically all animal products were giving personalities. So there was this like bear called Rilakkuma. It was a famous freaking bear and I would buy these key chains of this bears face and sell it on Amazon, and I was able to make $ 5,000 a month based on that product.

The pros of shop stripping in 2011 in 2012, was there’s literally no competition. Now the cons is, it’s just now really competitive and I would say it’s pretty cost intensive, at least the way I did it. I fulfilled it out of my own home. You have to keep in mind that someone has to do those physical labor work. I’m not sure how it is right now, just because I don’t do that anymore, but that is just something to keep in mind.

Alright guys so number three of how I used to make money was freelancing. You guys, if you are a student or you’re someone who is a teenager, you want to make money. This is my best advice to get started. You don’t need to be a serial entrepreneurial. You don’t need to create a lemonade said. All you needed to do is have a single skill and make it worth for someone else, and all I did was provide photography services, my school’s hard to know me as the Instagram girl.

So I was like okay guys. If you want photos, it’s going to cost you 20 bucks a session, so I went on these photo shoots. I had this very cringy like portfolio account where I would show my clients, and I would go on these $ 20 shoots. Honestly, it was super fun like I just organically grier, my little photography business started to do senior portraits, oh and by the way, pro tip guys, suburban moms, with a little bit of cash flow or your best clients.

Okay, if you’re doing photography for senior photos, especially those moms gotcha, I would actually recommend to literally go to Zillow and type in like high income houses above like half a million dollars or a million dollars and literally go to those house areas and, like hang up Flyers or Facebook ads to hyper target them on those houses because they have more money to spend on your services like, I was able to charge a hundred and fifty dollars for senior photos, and that was Bank at my time so going to find the best customer.

I can actually afford your services if you do that. So that’s a pro tip now I feel like Jayde. I don’t have a skill in photography. How do i, freelance? I would actually recommend fiber comm? This is not sponsored. I just heard they have other virtual assistant type of tasks, whether you can do email replying for someone else or company. You can do like some bitch work, essentially there’s tons of offers on Fiverr that you can just pick up by sending up an account, and I haven’t personally done it, but I definitely know there’s way more skills and taking photos that you can do so with freelancing.

I was able to make a thousand dollars in the summer and I was a bank for me. I was just rolling in dough, so highly recommend freelancing all right. So now, for the controversial lesson of the day, a lot of people say no you’re worth when it comes to freelancing. Now I have a contradiction to that. I also think it’s just as important when getting started to do free work. I remember that I couldn’t charge people $ 20 for a photo shoot, so it just took photos on my friends to build up my portfolio for a whole year instead, and I think there’s not a lot of people talking about that, at least in what I’ve seen So I just definitely think like yes charge your coins this and get your money, but also don’t be afraid to do free work like sometimes here and there.

For my businesses, I will sometimes lose by taking projects, but I know it’s in a build of experience and build up my technique to get better. That’s just something to keep in mind, don’t be afraid of free work. Alright, so the fourth way to make money is social media. When I was around 16 or 17, that was a time I actually dropped out of high school and it was because YouTube was starting to pick up.

I make money on YouTube in three ways. One is Adsense, so I get place ads you see on this article. I got paid for affiliate links and I also got paid for sponsorships honestly for a 1 million viewed article. I get paid around 4 to 5 thousand dollars for that just coke campaign, so it was able to sustain me for like a few months and that’s why I felt a little bit more comfortable to drop out of high school at like 16 years old.

So I was making a little bit of cash from those articles. I do have to say, though, the pros starting a YouTube blog is it’s very profit friendly like you only have to invest in a camera, and my parents really did help me kind of get my feet off the ground and invest and help me get this camera. But the cons is it’s not a sustainable, as you think I definitely have articles with a million views, but I also have articles with like two thousand views and that variance and views can also correlate to income.

So I realized that, like obviously yeah, I made a few thousand dollars through YouTube articles, but I have to diversify and create a sustainable brand. So it will lead me to my other revenue streams in just a second. But that’s just something to keep in mind of wins, earning YouTube blog. You have to diversify as soon as possible, so with diversification, number five consulting. So, as my blog surpassed like a hundred thousand subscribers, I started to get approached by brands to consult for their Instagram and YouTube strategy to grow their brand, and I got paid like seventy-five dollars an hour which is pretty cool like I was able to afford apartment In LA travelled the world, it was pretty good like I made a decent living, but I definitely think it’s a tricky situation when you trade time for money, because you could be someone’s bitch easily.

So I really tried to at least you know charge more throughout the years. So now I do around $ 500 an hour give or take. I don’t do too many hourly consulting sessions anymore, because I prefer to do project-based stuff. I just find that training money for time can easily become a job like I didn’t start a business to get employed by someone. I started a business to create my vision, so it’s really important if you guys do do consulting like just to be very mindful of that, because, yes, it’s very profitable, but you can easily be someone else’s bitch.

If you don’t know what you’re doing and you’re just not charging enough for it, because I’ve lost more money, sometimes by consulting because it took me a flight to get there come back book. A hotel like I’ve definitely lost money. So just to be mindful of that profit and cost me guys, if you’re so far and trying this article make sure to give this article a like to. Let me know that you’re doing it subscribe to this blog for more articles about entrepreneurship.

Alright number! Six! Now I currently make money through software in my own products, so basically after consulting like I said, I just became very, very tired of just trading money for time and I realize, like my dream, has always to build a product like since the lemonade stand days. I was just obsessed creating experience, I just didn’t do it anymore, just like it was so sorry, I’m being dramatic.

I was just super grateful for those opportunities. Of course, like I’m, not saying, I’m not grateful for those consulting sessions, but I am saying, though, is I knew that it was time to start something new. So, a year ago, with my co-founder, I started a text message. Software called PBJ app, and this has been amazing journey. Pbj is a text message platform for brands to use to grow their business and for every customer we get it’s around fifteen hundred dollars and the pro of software is that it’s very scalable, like adding one user.

Doesn’t cost us too much money, however, the biggest cons of doing software is it’s very capital intensive at the start, like we probably put in over a hundred thousand dollars into your platform so far, and we still have another half a million dollars to go to finish. Our platform like it is not cheap and I literally pour every lick drip of money. I have into this project cuz. I really believe in it, but yeah, that’s just one of the cons of building your product, but I love it.

I really love our platform and, if you guys want to know more information about my text, message pod for I’ll just put information in the description box and you guys can check it out around the same time I started PBJ. I also started East Lake, which is a food box. I’m not going to go too much in detail about this project, but I started a food subscription box company. Don’t ask why I just pull myself into very interesting opportunities that don’t really make sense all the time, but yeah each box is thirty dollars, so we don’t make a ton of profit honestly on the boxes.

We actually lose more money, but yeah. That is another revenue stream that I’m currently working on and really trying hard to build and hopefully become profitable. I actually have a whole article about how apps don’t make money. I will link it up here in the cards on the description box. If you guys want to know why most companies aren’t profitable, alright guys so to break it down, you saw six ways of how I make money, and now I’m going to show you guys where I make my money, mostly so 30 % of my revenue, I would Say is from piaget gap its customers that pay us to use our text message platform, then the other 30 % is consulting.

I could sold for Shopify brands to grow the business for e-commerce. My father and I have kind of worked on that together, another 30 %. I do make from YouTube whether it’s ads sponsorships. I definitely think that YouTube has brought me so many opportunities with that and, lastly, how this like little sliver percentage, our just random gigs that I do like I do have each like. I have a couple other side.

Hustles I like have an obsession with running businesses, as you can tell like. If there’s a lemonade stand opportunity, I’m jumping on it so yeah, I definitely spread myself a little thin. Sometimes my main focus has always been PBJ consulting and youtube. So those are the ways I curly make money, hey guys. So I just say thank you so much for reading today’s article, if you guys want to know more about entrepreneurship and how I spend my money, give this article a thumbs up and shout out to the comment winner.
