There’s one phrase that I absolutely hate admitting, but I constantly find myself saying quite often here – “My parents were right.” From my mother’s reminding me to eat vegetables to my father’s advice of turning off the lights when I leave the dorm room, I find myself calling my parents and letting them know that, once again, they were right.
But there’s one area where they truly have been right, and it’s definitely helped me in my transition to college. Last Christmas, my dad gave me a planner and told me to start using it back then because time management would be absolutely necessary in college. He was really right about that one.
Between clubs, classes, homework, preparing for classes, tests, quizzes, and somehow finding time to eat and socialize, time management is really critical in college life. There are times that I just want to stop translating “De Officiis” for Latin class or stop paraphrasing “The Groundhog” for my CRAW class and just waste some time away on Facebook, but I’ve learned within my first weeks here that there is a time for fun stuff. The adjustment to college isn’t all that difficult, as long as time management is a priority.
As much as I hate admitting it, my parents were right. Again.<< Older Entries
