Am I the only person tripping on the fact that February is pretty much over? I mean, where did the time go?! Between getting adjusted to being a student again and trying to maintain my websites and the other things I have going, it’s like my life has been one big blur since the year started.
Managing my time between school, work and my personal life has been much harder than I thought it would be. School isn’t really the problem – I think if I managed my time better it wouldn’t be so overwhelming at times. I wait until the last minute to write papers (like an idiot), I get distracted so easily while I’m trying to write blog posts because my mind will go to something else I need to do and I just haven’t been working as hard as I did when I first started all of this.
I have to seriously get my shit together.
I tried this writing technique that one of my professors told me about where you set a timer for 25 minutes and during that time frame you just write as much as you can. When the 25 minutes are up, you set it for a 5 minute break and then repeat. I didn’t think it would work but it really does. My plan is to use this technique for everything I have to get done from day to day that requires my undivided attention. I have events coming up and projects that will follow those events and I can’t afford to drop the ball. I can’t risk my education because I’m being lazy or my priorities are out of order.
Besides that, everything else is great. I feel good about my future and I know that the world is mine for the taking! Let me tell you…that’s a wonderful feeling…but I’ll never take over the world if I can’t handle my own schedule! Share your time management techniques with me pretty please… *bats eyelashes*
