Over the weekend I decided that I would no loner spend 7 days a week studying. The days of killing myself over assigned reading and working on upcoming assignments are over, weekends are now for fun and relaxation. When I first started out as a university student I really did kill my psyche over trying to be an exceptional student, so much so that my grades suffered. There’s studying and then there’s over studying. I studied 7 days a week and almost 24 hours a day, that is nuts. I distanced myself from friends and family members so I could be the best I could be and I now know that is something I shouldn’t have done.
Now I see it different and I’m okay with that. This weekend was a little difficult not picking up a pen or book, but I got through it. I was also fighting off this nasty flu and cold virus that is going around so the extra time to relax was wonderful.
This week I will study and do all the assigned readings and work on some upcoming assignments. I’m trying to get as much done as I can before I go into surgery (date still TBD). I have a few medical appointments this week but I am sure to get some studying in. The courses I am registered in this year are very interesting and it piques my historical mind. I have always loved learning something new and these courses add more information to what I already know… and that is not a bad thing.
What are your plans for this week?
