So I guess I Do Have A New Year's Resolution. | spilledsecrets's Blog

It's a month late, but better late than never, in this case. It's also the first New Year's-ish resolution I've ever made in my whole life.

I'm going to be a better student. I'm determined.

Not that I was ever a bad student. I was always on the Honor Roll in elementary and high school, took advanced and honors courses, and graduated college Cum Laude, with a 4.0 in every class related to my major (damned math and sciences pulling my overall average down!).

However, I'm a big time procrastinator. I don't do my readings before class and i wait until the night before to write essays and study.

I really don't want to screw this up. Since I started school last month, I've been trying to do my readings on time, and I do my homework the day i receive it, not the night before it's due. I just wrote an essay for my Health Science class even though it's not due for 2 weeks - it's something I'm proud of, just because I haven't done it before. It also makes me feel better to be able to walk into lectures and answer questions because I've already read the answers in the text. Studying is still hard to not put off but I've also found that doing my other work early means that studying the night before isn't nearly as difficult because I retain a lot of the material already.

Admittedly, being married makes this easier. I don't like to be away wasting time on the computer while my husband is home so doing homework in the living room while he plays games and watches tv is a good way to keep myself busy and still spend time with him talking about different subjects.

I really want to do things right this time. I feel like I cut myself short during my last stay at college. I want to really absorb as much as i can this time around. I want to be a fully dedicated full-time student.

I can relate to being the "procrastinator"
But you're changing your habit and I'm sure you'l succeed. All the best with your studies! :)
