College Students and Time Management: Where Does The Time Go?

As a college student, time doesn’t seem like something that I have enough of. I am always running around last minute attempting to finish my assignments, saving my hours for pomping until the final day of the week, and cramming all night for an exam that is the next day.

I was thinking about how little of time we have as college students and then I started to think about what I have actually been doing with my time. There are actually several things that most college students have in common when it comes to filling their time with unproductive activities.

This includes scavenging for food, complaining, watching Netflix, rummaging through your phone, and socializing whenever you possibly can.

I am sure anyone in college can look through that list of activities and agree that we are doing at least one of those things at all time. I was looking through my phone, and the amount of snap chats that I get of people “studying” is ridiculous.

Of course we are cramming for our tests last minute, when we are attempting to study we get distracted by our phone, or the internet. Unfortunately, this is modern day education and there is nothing that we can do about it.

Podcasting: Is it beneficial?

Last week, Savannah and I created a Podcast over the hit TV series “Orange is the New Black.” Going in thinking it was going to be difficult, it was surprisingly easy.

Of course, there were some bumps in the road here and there, but all in all we didn’t have much trouble figuring out how to edit all of our footage. The most trouble I had was with communicating what I had to say in a clear and concise manner. I started to get better and more comfortable as we progressed which goes to show that practice makes perfect.

Thanks to this project, I plan on taking more classes that involve public speaking. Hopefully this will help me become a better at expressing my ideas.

All I can say, is that the internet was the only reason Savannah and I could get a decent idea of how to work garage band. We used tutorials for almost every aspect of our project.

Something that I wish we would have done differently is every college kid’s problem: procrastination.

We always think there is so much more time than there is and yes, it ends up biting us in the butt every time. Unfortunately there was not much I could do in this situation because of all of the other projects in my classes.

But what can I say? If you enjoy wasting your time then is it really wasted time?
