(I found another word those Brits and Canucks refuse to z-ify.)
Three weeks into the semester I've decided to really buckle down and get organised! (I'm gonna keep doing that until it starts to annoy me... probably about one more time.) Better than my usual method: with three weeks LEFT in the semester... lol. Mess. I stay on top of due dates (especially the big ones that could keep me from graduating) usually but sometimes when things are coming up at the beginning of the next month, they sneak up on me. I have two lectures next month and a rough cut due. I've started all of them in one form or another so that's good to know! But I know I could be much more efficient in my use of time.
I did a search for organisation (except I spelled it with a z) schedule and got a tip I really liked: make a master list and set up a schedule around completion of that master list. Some of the things I put on my master list are visit one of the museums on campus that's free for students once a week, go to a basketball game, just so you don't think I don't have any fun planned! All work and no play makes Jameil a raving lunatic. I need to figure out some way to get myself completely on board with the whole schedule thing and I think it's going to start with planning specific things for specific days and specific times. I'll let you know when I get it down pat. What helps you (she asks again)?
*If you're wondering if I lost the daily blogging competition with Rashan, I posted on The Record Dish yesterday about egg nog cupcakes. Rashan said that doesn't count... what? The goal is to post daily... considering I post on the Record Dish (Stace and my's food blog) AND this blog, I'm blogging circles around you, Rashan! Go sit down!
