I was never one of those kids who studied in high school. Don’t get me wrong, I valued an education and I took school seriously, it’s just that learning never was hard for me. I was the queen of procrastination, trying to convince myself that I work better under pressure, which I learned the hard way in college is not the case.
I am a social butterfly and I hold friendships and quality time higher than school work sometimes…most of the time. But God has a way of showing us our faults, sometimes gently, sometimes not. So one thing that I was really convicted about last semester was time management and the importance of doing work on time and to the best of your ability. I’m so glad I learned that my first semester of freshman year, I just hope for my sake that I continue down the right path.
And I thank God for is grace and the grace of my profs, who are more than willing to work with you to make sure you pass…most of the time at least.
So my advice to you procrastinators out there is to make a “To Do” list, in order of high importance to least importance. It helps tremendously. And ask a more responsible friend to help keep you accountable. And maybe even set up an award system for yourself.
