TIP: Find hints in your Unit 2 Reading & Challenge areas ( minimum ten complete sentences ): Most of my 12-15 hours per class slipped in easily. I did have to arrange a few things to make it all work but it was not a major issue.  I’m not sure yet how it will impact me. It is a negative because every single moment of everyday is now planned out. At this point I feel  like there is no time left for me to breathe and just “be”.  On the other hand, busy is good. I do my best work when there is a lot to be  done. Having a schedule where one task flows into another with no down time to get lazy in between may just prove to be a good thing  for me.             The areas I would adjust if something unexpected happened would be time with Dan, work time and sleep time. I don’t use my  vacation time from work weeks at a time. I use it an hour here and hour there when needed.  I also could sleep less. I have a very high  energy level and my family is always telling me to slow down and get some sleep. I usually respond, “Nope, I’ll sleep when I’m dead.”  Life is too short to waste it doing nothing. I want this degree more than I want sleep so I am willing to give it up so that I can not only  succeed, I can excel.  I don’t get lot of time alone with Dan and it is truly something that I need to stay on track and focused. Cutting out  some of that time would be the toughest of the three things to do. I do however want to excel in school so I am willing to do what I have  to in order to make that happen.           My major concern is that my kids will feel neglected. I tried to put as much study time as I could after they are in bed. The weekends  however have a lot of study time in them. This is time we usually spend together. It is going to be an adjustment for them.  Luckily they  are supportive of my decision to go back to school. My strategy to deal with it is to make each moment I do spend with them count. I will  spend quality time versus quantity of time with them.          Thinking ahead about my tasks and schedule helps me to know if I am falling behind.  If I need to make cuts elsewhere in order to  catch up I can easily see where that is possible.  I am also able to give the girls advanced warning if I need to cut our time together short  on a specific day. This leads to less disappointment and causes things to run smoother.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
