Posts Tagged ‘Time Management Skills’
And so it begins! I had exactly two classes Thursday and came home completely exhausted, overwhelmed and scared. Such a big place! Everybody is even younger than they used to be when I was in college and they were really young then! And the technology the professors talk about – crazy! And one of my classes is an online class…what is that about?! No face to face?
And so those were my worries when I got home Thursday. And what I really needed to do was to simply start on the work, which I did, and to remember to take things one step at a time, which I am trying to do, and to remember it is as if the grad program is a full time, 9-5ish job and to to treat it as such. Let it go at the end of the day.
The other grad students (lol – younger, more energetic grad students ) tell me to remember it is all about time management. Unfortunately I have no time management skills, so when they said this it was far from comforting. But I know, I know, it is time for me to learn this too. And in my Developmental Psych text book – this is the online class which I am finding quite fascinating now that I have bravely begun to work on it – it says that even as older people we can develop new skills and new pathways in the brain and even new synapses! New Synapses!
I’m going for it! I’m gonna need a lotta new synapses…
