The amount of blogging I’ve been doing recently has significantly reduced (huge apologies). I won’t lie, the third year workload has really shocked me! From second to third year I would say that the workload has pretty much doubled and it has been a struggle to balance my time between uni work, paid work and my social life.
BUT this is something that I think I have finally got sorted. Time management is incredibly difficult and is a skill I wish I could constantly master, however, this is just part of the University life. During my time management realisation I found some incredibly useful tips that helped me so much and It would not be fair if I didn’t share them!
1. PLAN PLAN PLAN! If you fail to plan you plan to fail – simple as. This can’t really be explained anymore.
2. BE REALISTIC! If you know you won’t be in the library at 8am, then do not plan yourself to be in the library at 8am. You will get upset at yourself if you don’t follow your plan (yes, I am speaking from experience)
3. DO NOT OVERLOAD YOURSELF! You need to have some free time as well or you will burn out (Also speaking from experience), take some time out to enjoy yourself and have fun!!
Keep working hard and it will pay off!
