Enable my anal retentive side

I would like to schedule every day from now until the end of my semester. I would like that schedule to work as a checklist, where every item I need to complete, even regularly recurring ones such as attending class and making dinner, are checklist items I can check off.
I have a laptop but not a smartphone.

Psychologically, I know that checking items off a list is incredibly helpful to me. It allows me to feel a sense of personal progress, accomplishment, and movement toward my goals. But I also need to be extremely mindful of scheduling for the next few months, so checklist items must be tightly integrated with my scheduling. For example, I need to study for x-hours a day/week, and need a way to track that that is happening every day/week.
Right now I'm using iCal which has a checklist, but the checklist is not well-integrated with the calendar function. As far as I understand google calendar is not much better at this, but feel free to tell me if I can use google calendar better for this.
