How to Squeeze in Studying When You Have No Time!
It’s #StudyMAYhem Day 5, and I can definitely tell the “Mayhem” descriptor is completely accurate for this month!!
I’m not sure how it happened, but I am working full time hours this week! And it’s my first week of the spring semester (aaah!). So basically I have NO time to sit down at my desk to study or do my readings.
Instead, I spent an hour tonight after I got home from work printing off my readings from my computer and putting them in a binder to take with me.
Here’s how I make it work:
Wake up an hour early || Use that time to do some school work, and when your alarm goes off for when you would normally wake up and get ready for school you can stop studying and switch into work mode.
Study on Transit || Bring your study cards with you whenever you travel and take that time to quiz yourself for your upcoming tests. I have little plastic cases for mine so they’re easy to throw in my bag!
Do Readings on your Lunch Break || I have an hour long lunch break tomorrow, and I plan on being anti-social and doing school work instead of chatting with coworkers. This happens probably every other week, and they understand I’m trying to balance school and work so they don’t bother me when I tell them I have something to do.
Go Over Concepts In the Shower || Instead of singing in the shower, try to explain to yourself a concept from your readings or studying you did that week!
Block Off Time on the Weekends to do School Work || I need to schedule study sessions on my days off so I don’t accidentally fill my weekend with social events and leave myself NO time to do assignments.
