Uh, wow. I haven’t posted in ages…
It has just occurred to me that the last time I posted any new content was almost a week ago. It has also occurred to me that I have gotten absolutely no creative writing done this week and so will probably not have anything of worth ready by the end of Sunday. I suppose I’ll have to change that bit where I said that I would definitely update my main story at least once a week.
I would like to be able to say that this is just because my University workload has skyrocketed, the traditional end-of-year crunch having well and truly begun. This is certainly a part of it, and I did indeed predict that this would happen, but it’s hardly the main reason: the sad truth is that, even after four years of university, my time management stinks. I’m hardly the only student for whom this applies, but that doesn’t make it any better.
In fact, I’d go so far as to say that time management is one of my biggest flaws and it is certainly a major reason why my hobbies have developed so slowly during my time at university. I’m on track to receive a degree that I can be proud of, but I sometimes wonder just how more I could have done in the last four years had I managed my time just a little bit more effectively.
With all that said, University is something I’ll only get to do once whereas I have still have my whole life to develop other pursuits. I can safely say that things could have gone a lot worse.
Is anyone here a student or a recent graduate? How easy did you find it to manage your time when things got busy?
