Balancing School and Blogging
For those of you that don't know, I'm a university student. Even better, I'm a first-year, which makes life complicated. Figuring this all out hasn't been easy, but I have figured out some rules for myself to stay balanced.
1) School will always come first.
I'm typing this out as fast as I can before I go to sleep... it's 1:30 in the morning. I've studied until my head hurts, and blogging is helping make me sleepy. Blogging now means work is done.
2) Blogging can be a break from studying.
Actually, I mostly blog when I don't want to do my homework. However, I only blog for 30 minutes before I go back to work. So, school might come first, but blogging keeps me sane.
3) I'd rather not post on the blog than get overly stressed.
If you're a long-term reader of this blog, you know I try to post 5 times a week. However, this hasn't been happening lately-- because I have 2 papers due in 3 weeks, plus an exam tomorrow that I've been studying for. Not posting sucks, but not doing well in uni or getting stressed out over the blog sucks worse.
So fellow bloggers, how do you stay balanced?
