I actually basically suck at it.
I thought that I had finally gotten into the swing of things this semester, but in actuality I’ve just figured out how to study efficiently. (*cough* whiteboards *cough*.) Things were going great until this past weekend, when the dance festival happened. It was so, so, fun– but not being able to spend the weekend studying really threw off my groove.
And of course I had two very large exams at the beginning of this week– one in chemistry, and one in biology. Even though I’d kept up with homework and reading, I stayed up studying all of Sunday night, and most of Monday night.
I’m probably going to get my scores back tomorrow, which is terrifying. I definitely don’t think that I failed either of them, (I actually felt pretty good about the bio test) but I also don’t think that I did as well as I normally do. Thank God that none of them were lab tests though… I would have been screwed.
Anyways, I definitely need to work on my time management skills. Take now for example: I’m basically caught up on all my reading and homework, but my dorm is a mess. I don’t have any milk or coffee, the only food I have is peanut butter and cereal (and no milk) I have an overdue book from the library, and I still have to take my banking information to HR for my new job. I also need to pick up my comp tickets for the opera, pick up my rehearsal schedule for the weekend, and sign up for advising/figure out what classes I need to take. I also haven’t gone to the gym all week, and I’ve primarily subsisted off of yogurt and chicken salad from the cafeteria.
I need a polished, well put together adult to come and coach me on how to get my life together. Like Angelina Jolie with her adopted children, amazing career, and fabulously manicured nails. HOW DO YOU DO IT ALL.
p.s. Look at this kinda cool-lookin’ picture! (It’s from the piece the freshman class at my university performed at the dance festival.)
