Today is the last day of vacation. I’m starting the day with some work and a meeting . It’s true that freelancers never really get a day off. In fact I’m hoping to get a new phone for my birthday this month so that I can work even BETTER on the road or at the cottage, etc. (I also want new running shoes and yoga pants if we’re going there )
Tomorrow my life gets thrown back into homework mode. The inevitable “back to school.” I’ve been obsessing about my new schedule. In fact I just changed my classes again.
This semester’s classes are:
- International Business
- Training and Development
- Management and Leadership Skills
- Applied Marketing Management
I just switched my Training and Development class to an online course to get out of doing a group project. Let’s be honest, no one likes group projects. It honestly kills me to put the fate of my grade in other students’ hands. Plus I have a group project in my Marketing class, and I have no course outline yet for International Business or Management and Leadership Skills. I fear they may have group projects too. Ahhhhhhh!!!!!!!
The other reason I switched it is to free up my Thursday schedule a bit. If you recall from my summer semester, I previously crammed as many classes into as few days as possible. That ended up making me totally miserable. This semester I was trying to minimize the long days. The original time slot for my Training class was 8:30am on Thursdays and I have a team meeting that starts at 5:30 every Thursday. Uh oh … long day alert!!!
So now that my class schedule is all settled (hopefully), it’s time to figure out the rest of my schedule. I need to allot time for my job on campus, my freelance work, and my study time. THEN I need to add in fitness, chores, social, and family.
Hmmmm so me and my agenda need to get to brainstorming.
I’m actually considering a digital agenda and lists for the first time ever. I’m really more of a pen and paper person but I also like the idea having my agenda on the computer.
Tell me about your fall (or September) schedule. Are you doing anything different this season? For my fellow students – group projects, thumbs up or thumbs down? Any recommendations for digital calendars / schedules?
