  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Managing your time in college creates your success, can help with stress

Close your eyes, take a deep breath and exhale. Doesn’t that feel better?

With all the hustle and bustle of college, time management is the most important thing; otherwise you might go insane. As someone who is always trying to beat the clock, I value every second I get to do anything that isn’t school related. If it weren’t for the little moments of free time, you might never value all of the hard work you put into something.

I have had friends who’ve dropped out of college because the struggle of time management coupled with the stress of social life proved to be too much to take on. I’ve also seen friends miss one assignment and fly off the handle because they simply forgot the due date. Taking time to figure things out on your own will pay off in the end. If you need to study, then do it. If you need to do homework or attend a meeting, then do it. As a college student, we’re all extremely busy trying to do the best we can, but only the ones who can manage their time wisely will be walking up to get their diploma. I remember always trying to push deadlines further and further until I found myself racing the clock to turn in an assignment I was embarrassed to say was mine.

As graduation looms it’s head around the corner, I can finally say I learned my lesson my sophomore year when I was able to manage my time wisely while still being able to turn on Netflix every so often to take a break. If it weren’t for the little moments in between pulling my hair out over studying for final exams, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Students should invest in planning ahead as soon as the first day of college comes around, but don’t let all of the stress get to your head. Everyone is always rushing to get something done, but no one ever realizes taking a break, even for a minute, might improve the end result. If there is one thing I’ve learned in my time at the University, it’s that hard work definitely pays off, but you might not appreciate it if you’re beating yourself up about other things. The world doesn’t stop spinning if you missed an assignment; it happens to the best of us. Being able to manage your schedule to do what you need to do the next time around will pay off in the long run.

Just always remember to take a deep breath every once in a while to clear your head; you’ll feel better.
