As you may have noticed since reading my recommendation to subscribe to the “Being a Planner” Tumblr, it has not been updating regularly for a couple of weeks. Inspired, I’ve started the “Being A Planning Student” Tumblr, as linked below.
I’ll be updating it with giggle fodder every day I don’t post for The Comprehensive.
Requests and suggestions will be taken here as well as through the Tumblr page.
You CAN subscribe to this through an RSS feed as you may do with this blog.
Being A Planner is:
There are always up-to-date issues and laws being made fun of.
If I don’t get a joke, I google it, learn about the topic/concept/law/theory/jargon/common misconception, read the post again, laugh. And then I repeat too many times to be proud of. Seriously- I’d know nothing about TIGER if it wasn’t for this tumblr. (PS: What a terrible logo for a federal program, huh? Click the link to see.)
I mean, it’s Tumblr. If you find serious stuff on Tumblr that’s not at least entertaining, you’re doing it wrong.
Who else makes fun of planning in such compact, bite-sized cubes of awesome? No one. That’s who.

There really is no reason not to if you’re a planning groupie, planner, or planning student.
