8:30AM - Wake up
9AM - Drive to school
10AM - MAT 303 Lecture
11 AM - MAT 303 Recitation
12 PM - PHY 142 Lecture
1 PM - Study for Physics
4 PM - MAT 200 Lecture
5:30 PM - Go home

However, depending on whether it's midterms or finals then all that gets screwed up
Anyone else do something for their time management?

But I still want to be a part of this site and it can be frustrating to bounce right back into it and catch up after you've gone poof for a few months. I like FB to keep me updated when I'm bored and missing you guys. This way I don't miss out on everything and don't get so swamped when I'm ready for a full return to posting and all that fun stuff.
I'm not sure of a good answer. It was tough with 17 hours both semesters, music ministry and a club sport. I want to keep doing my activities, I'm taking 18 hours in the fall, and I'm living slightly off campus (I lived in a dorm in the middle of campus so I could really pop in at anytime.) I guess since I have a slightly longer walk I'll probably keep my laptop with me more (it lived in my dorm last year unless I needed it for something specific) so I guess if I play my cards right and I have the muse I could see some in between class posts happening.

It does get a little difficult at most times. However once you get in the groove of things and time management, it gets easier. Something to remember is that RL does come before RP. This is only meant for fun and to get away from all the hastle of RL. But seeing that we are in college it gets harder with how to spend our time. I have a schedule book I follow split into 15 minute intervals so I always have an outline of how long I am doing what each and every day. That helps.

=] Time management is a personal thing, there is not one special trick that works for everyone.
Lesson One: Reality bites.
It is a real living thing that ticks with the seconds of the day.
It can be the best bite of your favorite meal, and it can be the worst mishap of the same dish.
The thing to remember is that you need to put some effort into your life. Being flexible helps.
Find your own priorities: yourself, education, family, friends, commitments there first
then the list could have sports, leisure, entertainment, and other people's drama.
Lesson Two: Get a balanced meal.
Why stress, learn to control the amount on your plate.
Balance that plate. 1/3 you have to do. 1/3 need to do. 1/6 should do. 1/6 want to do.
The trick is not to neglect something should/need to do until it becomes a MUST do overload.
For me I would center a group of reports around one research subject.
One target to study, then write a history, science, bio, economic, art, psych, political report.
Lesson Three: Share
If you are into lists use them. Post its, apps, and study groups, they are very useful.
We would get together with notes, questions, project and work on it.
The short break sport/tv/movie gave everyone a chance to tag up messaging, relax, and go further.
Internet & laptops have made this section so much faster. Links, ideas that were not used were exchanged.
When you are short on time, you do not need to waste it on a bad movie, restaurant or research material.
Lesson Four: What is off your plate.
As Paul McCartney said, if we all had a meatless day one day a week we could change the world.
Consider to take off for a few minutes/hours for a mental holiday. Disconnect or Reconnect.
It can be short tasks, flipping a magazines, cooking, a book, gaming, HO. (Bring on the war games.)
I have sacrificed this day to getting ahead. Finished project sits like a trophy on my desk.
HOgwarts allows you to escape to a destination, activity and be it a long post or a few fast replies.
Do something magical with or without a wand.
Lesson Five: How often do you .....
There is only twenty-four hours a day, about six hours to sleep.
That gives you sixteen hours to go to class/study, 8 work then relationships and fun.
It is possible to skip a meal/brush your teeth/dessert/socialize or play.
If you follow your bliss you can be happy while you work, this relieves the dread.
Lesson Six: Do I have to?
There is no rule that you must attend HO classes. Classes give you quills/spells.
Try to come online and roleplay. Relax. Have an adventure. Dig in. Have fun.
A fast response, dailies, weekly and the guest appearance. Enjoy
Once again at Hogwarts, doing something you want to do for the moment.
Like a good book, open to the bookmark and go. Brilliant!
Find your favorite chapter and indulge in it one more time.
Lesson Seven: Find your rhythm.
Life, school, work, HOgwarts, you need to find your niche.
There is something for everyone, and some of it takes time, effort and work.
Breathe - sit up lean back and breathe. Hunching restricts oxygen to your brain.
When your brain is locked up? Do something with your other hand.
It will engage the other side of your brain to become more creative or logical.
Just moving your leg or strumming the fingers can help. Sports or chores.
HO can help, it jogs your creative thought process. It empowers you, magic is possible.
Mozart is great for math/chemistry it effects the brain and helps you.
Find your study go to: repetition, hands on physical learning, mind mapping.
