In Which Sam Curses Herself. Again

Remember how I said I was getting bored of the summer break? Yeah, well now that the start of the semester is just under two weeks away, I’m thinking I could do with a bit longer! Always the way, isn’t it? Nevermind, I shall live. I have two weeks to cram in stuff I’m less able to do during the semester. And two weeks to prepare myself for being the World’s Greatest Time Manager and the World’s Most Organised Student (ha!).

One thing I learned from my first semester and going through exams is that it is imperative my study notes are all organized throughout the semester and that I methodically work through all the material so that there is as little cramming as possible at the end of it. The worst is feeling bogged down by loads of information that’s barely making sense.

The other thing I learned was not to set myself too many tasks to do in a short space of time. I am notorious for having giant to-do lists and a ridiculous amount of time to complete it all in; it’s often just not possible to accomplish it all. Unless I suddenly turned into Super Woman or something. Doing this only ends in irritation because I become cross with myself for not completing everything.

Though I would probably accomplish more if I also got a hold on the procrastination and managed my time to every minute detail. I guess, with a lot of things, I just like to take my time. I’m not one of these hyper people who rush about doing whatever it is they’re doing and I’m glad I chose the right college for me. I’m methodical and I find myself feeling stressed if I rush myself too much.

So, 2018 will see me not procrastinating and not over-stretching my time! I vow to you, to the universe, to any potential god(s) and/or goddess(es), to my ancestors, to my future children, to…to…Twisties chips and ginger ale, to my mother and father, and most importantly, to myself. I do. I vow it whole-heartedly. My scholarship helped me survive the first years in college. See how it goes now.

I think I should make a deal with someone that if I don’t honor this vow I should have to get all my hair cut off or something.

Anyway, time for me to get going and do a couple more things online before I ice my dad’s birthday cake (carrot). Happy birthday, Dad! Love you! ♥

Haven’t had much blogging motivation this week and have been feeling a bit ‘off’ but I think I’m on the mend now! Despite not being the best I’ve actually managed to get quite a bit done on my to-do list, like choosing a new bag for uni. Gee, shopping is difficult…

Today my mama and I went to get my textbooks and a locker for the year. I have to take my French textbook to every class, which is a pain in terms of lugging it to the class I have straight after, but nevermind. Nothing a chiropractor can’t fix, right?

Before I go, I want to share a little something with you. The other night I was going from my room to the house when I saw this little guy or girl! Cute! It stayed while I snapped a few photos and then decided the flash was evil, enough was enough and waddled off. Bleh…
