I feel as though I have been typing non-stop since August. I would love to say that it is dying down now, but that would be a bigger lie than saying jeggings are a good idea. I would also love to say that I will not have this much required in the “real world” but the truth is, there will be times.
I noticed the other day, that when I received an assignment I literally cringed at the thought. “I can’t handle this! I don’t have anything else to say!” – were a couple (censored) reactions. But, for the sake of sanity and GPA, I put on my big girl panties and got over it.
Here are a few of the items that made this blog possible:
1. Read a Book – Not a textbook, but a book that makes you want to turn the page.
2. Dance – Let it go! Relax, smile and sweat it out. Dance until that is all that you can think about.
The final and most important of these:
3. Plan ahead – Like Dory from “Finding Nemo” says, “Just keep swimming!” Take a few minutes and list everything that you need to get done. Then, number them in the order in which they need to be done, aka prioritize. For small assignments, set a window of time in which it needs to be completed. For larger writing assignments, start with research, then an outline. If you fully understand what it is that you are writing about, you will have no problem meeting the length requirements.
Any other ideas on how to stay sane?
