    Time Management

    0
    I am currently a sophomore in college, and one of my biggest struggles is time management. I often find myself waiting until the last moment to complete assignments and study for tests, which I think is why my grades are not great. I struggle to balance my time between my schoolwork (classes and intense homework load), my job, going to the gym, having time to exercise, and have a social life....

    Hiya.So one of my favorite things in the world is my little red-eared slider turtle, Gregory (who is a girl). She lives with my roommate and me in our dorm. Why do I have a non-fish friend in my dorm? Because she's registered with my school as a therapy animal! (Actually, she's registered as an accronym I can't quite remember, but that's beside the point.) Yay!(Now, it might seem rather strange...

    UGH! That's all I have to say about that.Originally I was going to school for Graphic Design at a local private college. I got into an opportunity program that supports me financially as well as academically. I started summer of 2012. It took me a long, long time to make any friends there. I mostly stayed in my own little corner of the school. Mostly staying in my opportunity programs office. I...

    I could have done better.

    I failed by exam in BUS25, I got a 32/50 64%I needed to get a minimum of 80% to avoid doing the presentation. Because I fell far below that I am forced to present. I am terrified of speaking in front of people. I remember the announcement of getting a Citizenship Award and blacked out for the actual standing on stage getting it. Same thing happened in my English class last semester; we had to...

    As far as the students are concerned, writing every assignment matters and they need to make their every assignment top quality to get better results. Writing is a very common activity for the learners of all levels. You have to deal with writing from school, college and university levels. It’s a challenge but can present good knowledge to students. Students can grow through their writing...

    SO TIRED

    6
    I have not slept properly in over a month; I been up for two days finishing homework and preparing for exams. Every time I turn in something I have to begin another. I cannot keep this up, it is draining me. I am trying to find a balance between homework and relax but every time I relax I feel guilty for even breathing because that time could be better spent doing homework and preparing for exams.

    So today was very laid back. I completed assignments that I said I was going to complete and that was awesome. This week I have little assignments, so not much stress right now or hopefully in the future. Maybe I can get ahead for next weeks assignments, but I will see how I am doing by the end of this week.

I'm very introverted and not a very skilled conversationalist, and also I have less training this year than last. I'm really freaking out about it and I'm not sure how I'll make it through it.Does anyone have any tips? Either about rush or...
