and one to go! Yippee!
I passed today’s practical exam with awesome comments from the clinical assessor – I’m so happy :D
Now I have two weeks to study for my final assessment for the year. It seems almost unfair that I have so much time to devote to only one assessment task… 22 months ago
How I did it: I wrote a detailed, week by week plan of all the tasks I had to complete with little check boxes to mark off... ahhh, so satisfying (well... I don't need to tell you
about that, you're here!).
My priorities went something like:
I got a hot tip from Hyacinth Girl, using the Pomodoro technique,
It totally kicked my butt and got me going on an assignment that had stewed way too long. Read how I did it… 22 months ago
and one to go! Yippee!
I just submitted my last written assignment for the year… with 25 mins to spare! That’s still “keeping ahead” in my book. 23 months ago
I wish I had more time to spend on here, but I have been persuing this goal with fervour. Presentation tomorrow, 2000 words due on Friday. I chastised myself for a long time over not starting this last one, but now that I have, I can see that it isn’t going to be as much work as I thought, and the things I was doing instead (exercising, playing music) were just as important… so I’m going to go easy on myself… and get back to work23 months ago
I’m doing so fantastically well in this goal… in 2 out 3 units. Urgh. I’ve ignored one of them all semester and now I have TWO WEEKS to complete the entire workload (a group presentation and 2000 word funding proposal)! Time to crack the whip! 23 months ago
Just the conclusion to go. I’m already 150 words over my limit, so a bit of editing tomorrow and I’ll be done. Yay! 2 days early. Although, I’m struggling to keep up with the readings and lab preparation I need to have done by Thursday. Another big study day tomorrow.

All day working on this literature review, but I’m about half way through. Phew!

Week 5 begins. I’m doing well with the weekly lectures, readings and prep-work, but this literature review! Ugh! Shoot me now. There are so many other things I would rather be doing and even though I didn’t go to circus today, or for a lighthouse walk on Sunday or any of the other fun stuff I had planned, I don’t feel any closer to getting it done. I am rather good at chest rolls with the hoop now, however…2 years ago
I’ve become so good at this study thing, that I don’t have the time to spend on 43T that I once did. This semester is HUGE, but also compelling, stimulating and incredibly interesting. I’m loving it. I miss checking in each day, but I am just so keen to keep ahead with my work which could so easily snowball that I’m staying away.
I look forward to catching up in eleven weeks!!! 2 years ago
I have entered all my classes, appointments, exams, assignments etc into outlook. If I actually do get time to scratch myself, it will only be if the computer tells me to! 2 years ago
I solemnly vow to stay ahead with all my reading, exercises and assignments. There are a couple of really big research and writing assignments and I just cannot afford to let it all go to the last minute like last semester. Even if I did get 93% for that last essay that I wrote in the 48 hours before deadline, I WILL NOT do that againOK I have 2 hours to do the reading for my first class – LOL, what a way to begin!! 2 years ago
