Time, time, time

So, there are a lot of suggestions to be given on which extracurriculars to participate in, but how do you go about making them a reality?

    1. Time Management Skills: calendars, hour by hour scheduling, planning, priorities. Be creative. Create a system that works for you.
    2. One of my favorite sites is: I really hate self help shit, but this guy has totally stripped the ideas of goal planning and hard work down to those bare essential things that must be done in order to be the person you want to be.
    3. Multitasking. Listen to music while you type up your notes from the day. Go through your French note cards while jogging on the treadmill. Review the material that you have learned for your test while taking a shower.
    4. Prioritize. What activities are truly important to you? Which activities can you not afford to devote your attention? If you allow your GPA to drop so low, you may be placed on academic probation or loose your scholarship.
    5. Create a Semester Calendar when you first get all of your syllabi. Write down all test and paper dates; note those busy week like midterm week. Don't plan any special trips or events right before or during that week.
