Okay.... it's summer time, and my classes are online. I've never been the best at time-management (though I am working on it!) so I am a bit worried about that aspect of this semester. Help me out with your best time management tips!
I'm not sure it counts as procrastination when you are taking care of as many little ones as you are, Marie! lol
I am going to try to stay on top of things. I am guilty of though stress filled, last minute homework marathons a lot of times. I know that if I am going to be successful in this class, I cannot do that though.
I took a full 18 hours summer 2011 and was pg to boot so I empathize with your stress!!
I cannot recommend enough that you get a good planner with plenty of space to write in, if you don't have on already that is. I wrote down EVERYTHING from vacations, work, assignments to doctors appointments, birthday parties... It really helped me figure out when I could let something sit or if I had to get on it that day... Although with summer school, I had homework almost every night :/ Good luck!
I second the recommendation of a good planner. I am also a big fan of lists - there is just something so satisfying about crossing each item off. I worked 80+ hours a week at two different jobs during my first semester of grad school. All of my major assignments were due on Sundays, so every Sunday I would make my school list for the next week. It would look something like this:
Monday - Read CH2 and article, due first message board post
Tuesday - Respond to at 3 posts, gather research for weekly paper.
Wednesday - Outline weekly paper
Thursday - Respond to at least 3 posts, start writing weekly paper
Friday - Finish paper, set aside to proof
Saturday - Respond to message board posts, any required work towards mid-term/final projects (usually 15-20 page papers so I worked ahead)
Sunday - Proof and submit weekly paper, prep for next week.
