“So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it.” Now who can recall where I’ve borrowed that line from?
We have family to visit, friends to see and presents to buy. Christmas is an extremely busy time for all of us without the added anxiety of studying for classes beginning in the New Year. So what is the best way to manage both your studies and your social life at this hectic time of the year?
I would suggest, that you need to organise yourself in advance if you want to balance both your reading/studying/coursework and your free time. No more unexpected panics when you suddenly realise that the deadline is now next week or even tomorrow. There will be no more rushing around, getting tired and stressed. These holidays it will be different.
The Furry Blogmother’s top tips for (Christmas)time management:
• Write down everything that you want to achieve on a piece of paper (and be sure not to lose it!).
• Work out how many days you will need to actually work on these – be realistic – no one expects you to study OR party 24/7.
• Any last minute plans to arrange: For example: There are loads of concerts happening in December/January – and there are many that are not local. So make sure you organise tickets and transport early!! You don’t want to miss that all important PM concert in Liverpool on 20 December just because you forgot to book a return rail ticket.
• Do you have a part-time job? – organise your shift patterns in advance.
• Once you have managed to sort out what days and times you have available then put it into your diary.
• Leave yourself a few days free at the end of the holiday; just in case something comes up that you had not planned for.
You don’t have to spend all of your holidays studying, but it is important that you plan. This will help you to keep up with your studying and also enjoy the Festive period, totally stress-free.
My final borrowed quote for you to think about:
“I’ve just decided to switch our Friday schedule to Monday, which means that the test we take each Friday on what we learned during the week will now take place on Monday before we’ve learned it. But since today is Tuesday, it doesn’t matter in the slightest. Pencils ready!”.
Anyone recognise what book I’ve been reading lately?? Answers on a postcard…. or on the blog of course
