This past weekend was a great example of the balancing act that is life. The weekend before finals (for some) corresponding with a holiday weekend. Three days to study? Great in theory. However, that wasn’t the case. On Saturday, my sister-in-law graduated high school and is now a Buckeye! The superintendent had five things that not only the graduates, but everyone, should do every day: pay someone a compliment; do a good deed; be yourself and love what you see in the mirror; do something for yourself; and make a memory. Such good advice.
On Sunday, I was able to fit in some studying and attended a “Dave Boone FUNance study session” which was very helpful! On Memorial Day, we had a homecoming luncheon at our church and then had my sister-in-law’s grad party. Busy, busy weekend.
After a year of being in this program, there will be busy weekends like this one and there will be others that aren’t as busy. My advice is plan ahead. Plan out your weekend and know when/if you can fit in studying. Also look ahead and realize that if you have an upcoming busy weekend, try to do homework or readings ahead of time. Helps lessen the stress of trying to do all the readings and homework at the last minute.
