Holidays to Add to Your 2019 Calendar RN

If you’re anything like me, your life revolves around your planner/calendar/to do lists/etc. I can expect a weekly page of my planner to consist of at least seven random pen colors, song lyrics, an occasional disposed piece of gum, brunches, dance rehearsals, and if I’m lucky, my homework or readings for class that week. Some people prefer to lay out their calender on their phones, whether it be on Apple’s or Google’s Calendar App. As a college student, it’s totally vital to write or log assignments, hangouts, and schedules anywhere other than in our Crystal Light addicted, Gossip Girl obsessed, and Ariana Grande ridden brains. (wait, sorry that's just me….)

Anyway, I find my favorite aspect of my planner to be the listed holidays. There are so many crazy, fun, and unique holidays out there that can turn a regular Thursday into a magical thing. I’ve gone through literally hundreds of legitimate official holidays- from National Mustard Day to Step Mom Appreciation Day- to give you the best list of 2019 holidays to add to YOUR calendar for the rest of the school year. Included is their hashtag, so you can hop on the social media train and trend for that day. Having these written down in your planner can totally give you an extra boost or motivation for the day, and just make your life a little more exciting- it’s the little things!

(If this sounds like you’re missing out- or you forget about half of your plans or quizzes and need to hop on the planner train- you can find some adorable, affordable, and practical planner options right from your good friend Amazon.)
