Anime Review | Shinsekai Yori

Anime was one of the things that I thought I would grow out of, and for a while that was true. But as it turns out, it’s just something that grew and matured with me.

While I’m more than happy with my bullet journal, the opportunity to try the Passion Planner presented itself last year in the form of a very generous giveaway at UCLA – I’m talking 20,000 free planners. My brother, who thinks he’s too good for a planner, gave me his to try out. And after about two months of using it, I’m here to share my thoughts on the Passion Planner.
