Life Hacks For Grad Students

The end of the semester is near. That generally means one thing, it’s officially crunch-time. The assignments become greater and the due dates seem to be getting closer together. Here are a few tips that may be helpful to you during this busy time!

Don’t procrastinate…Due dates are closer than they appear! Since there is only about a month and some change left of the semester, many assignments are going to be due to colose out the semester. My advice, start working on any and everything. The last thing you want is to be put in a position where you are still typing a paper an hour before it’s due! Especially if it’s due online, those links will close!

Stay organized… Organization is not everyones cup of tea. But, it is certainly helpful when you are juggling multiple classes, possibly a job, family, and a social life. It is easy to overlook assignments or mateirals if you dont stay somewhat organized. Whatever way organization works for you, own it. If your papers are scattered all over, but you know exactly where something is when you need it, thats still organization! 

Eat & Sleep!…\ While these may seem obvious, they’re not. Sometimes when your’re wrapper up in papers, and books you forget to take care of yourself. Or you think I can sleep or eat later. Ladies and gentlemen this is not a key to success. Make sure to give yourself enough food and sleep. Your body needs energy to keep moving and process the information you are giving it. Nobody likes a stressed out sleep deproved hangry person!

Keep pushing and finish the semester out strong! What are your tips or rituals that get you through the semesters? Let me know in the comments!
