I’ve always been a busy person, taking on so much that I often have myself asking “what was I thinking?” when I inevitably find myself struggling to keep my head above water. This year, I’ve filled my plate with school work, some freelance editing, writing my own novel, and two separate internships. One internship is reading-intensive, where I have a once-a-week meeting to check in and receive a new week's worth of assignments. The other is completely remote, where it's all on me to remember to get my tasks done on the days they need to be done.
When I’m on a normal homework schedule (aka not midterms or finals period), it’s easy for me to get everything done in a timely manner. I compile all of my to-do items on one giant, ever-evolving color-coded list and it’s almost as easy as 1-2-3 checking them off (or deleting them from the document, which is what I actually do).
But since my midterm season started with two papers and two exams, I’ve been devoting almost all my time to school work, and the rest of my non-existent free time working on my internships. Every so often, I remember last minute to do something for one of these jobs and am stuck rushing to complete the task. Thankfully, I always get it done on time, but I won’t lie: it’s harder to juggle two jobs than I initially thought it would be.
So… what advice can I give?
I'm a self-published author— because being a college student wasn't hard enough! I write YA multi-genre fiction for young adults or the young at heart. I love This Is Us, NCIS, BBC's Sherlock,
