young, poor, busy, and confused
Seems like many of us have hit that not-so-magical point in the semester when many of our new-start ambitions have begun to fade. Every semester about this time, I start slacking off and re-discovering my antipathy for studying. |
1) I thought it might be "fun" and maybe "helpful" if we started making weekly goals. Of course this is completely optional, and the goals would be individual. But that way, we could each pick something, and post it in a weekly-goal post, and at the end of the week, come back and talk about how we did. Accountability, or even just getting to tell someone "hell yeah, I had this goal and I DID it!" really helps me. Also, since for the most part we don't know each other, we can choose tiny goals that we might be embarrassed to admit were goals to people we do know. goals could really be anything about any aspect of your life, not just school.
2) I'm thinking we should make a giant "study skills/focus aids" post and put it in memories, and then keep adding to it, since half of us can't focus for shit, myself included.
what do you think?
