HELP - My time management is appalling

I’m into the second week of first semester and already I’m behind. How did this happen I can hear you ask? My time management is pathetic.

I set out with great intentions, but they soon fall by the way side as I’m easily distracted. Each year I’m pulling out a “can of whoop arse” ready to release it on myself, because time and time again I’m in the same situation. Yet I continue to go down this path. I’m wondering at what point will I LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES, but as my brother stated to me on the phone today. ‘I don’t know what you’re worrying about, you’re passing Uni with Credit + marks, so if this method works for you. (That method being fuck all until its crunch time) then go with it!.

But there’s the problem. I’m not a natural student. I’ve got to read and write and read and revise and go over (You get the picture here) just to keep my head above water. So WHY do I waste all this time? WHY?????????

I need to slap myself about, knuckle down and get on with the job, because the reality is. Uni is hard, but it’s so much easier than working in a job you fucking hate week in week out. Perhaps that’s my problem right there. I’ve not got enough discipline with my Uni. I need to treat it like a job. Turn up early, have intermittent breaks / lunch etc and WORK, in stead of wandering off to ‘read’ and ending up having a nap! In my defence there I was tired. However I probably shouldn’t lie down horizontally and read for Uni, knowing full well I’ll probably nod off and loose the page I was up to which happened today!

So loyal bloggers, can you help me? Can you give me suggestions on what I should do to better manage my time, so I don’t feel like I’m constantly at this point in my Uni life, where I can’t be arse doing the readings, as I’d rather have a nap.

That’s all I’ve got.

Ha! The word verification word for my comment is "coment".. it's funny cos it's almost comment.

I think you should definitely send me your PS3 and I'll just hold on to that for you. That should take one distraction away.

Or do what I did and just do it in the ad breaks. In fact, I'm writing this comment in an ad break right now. You can find a lot of free time when you do things during commercial breaks instead of starting at the TV waiting for your show to come back.

I'm not good at organizing. I sort of tend to run around and do everything all at once. And then hope I remembered to do all that needed to be done.

If I organize a drawer, it's kind of like my life, it's all a mess in there but usually just move stuff about and find what I'm looking for...:)

LOL see no help at all...

Hi there - I'm your newest follower!

My study habits are very similar to yours, ie - non-existent. Thankfully I only have two subjects to go, but I've never managed to find a method of study that works better for me than the last-minute cram. Sorry, I know that's not much help!
