One month in

University of London study guidesEvery time the academic school year starts, I feel like time moves so fast.

It wasn’t so long ago that our classes just begun. And now, a month has already passed.

My subject guides have already arrived. This means that it’s time to really buckle down and study harder.

However, I must admit that the first month is hardest. I still feel lazy. Even now, I still feel a little lazy. Good thing is, right now, I’m still on track. Everything is alright so far. But I must admit that it was a little hard to start reading and studying. My brain is still a little rusty. It’s like an engine that was left alone for sometime, so to start it, it takes some time.

In the past, I would have been upset at my progress because it is still very slow. But over the years, I have learnt that what matters is to keep moving. To keep reading and studying. To just keep working at it. Because to get the engine roaring, you need loads of practice. So just keep going and one day, you will be at that pace that you want.

I do want my pace to pick up so I have to work harder now.

But so far, I am still on track despite my pace being a little slow. I stay on track by just planning my day and doing it. I know my pace so I don’t overplan and pack too much in my to do list. And if I manage to achieve what I planned out to achieve, I try to add more things to my plan for that day. I also celebrate a little by having a good meal later.

That’s my plan. To know my pace and slowly increase bit by bit.

That’s how I am dealing with this. So far, so good for me. I hope everyone’s studies are also alright currently.

  1. You know, your post is an encouragement. I’m currently lagging way behind, and I have not received my subject guides as yet;therefore, you know who has been worrying. I hope to receive the soon though and set my plan into action.

  2. I am still waiting for my fees to be paid and then i can receive my study material. I have been really starting to panic about missing too much but it just means I will need to work a little harder.

  3. I have already received my study material but i still haven’t had the encouragement or motivation to even look at my books. They’re just catching dust on my desk but this helped me blow the dust and start on at least reading the first few pages. Thank you. I hope i can get out of this lazy state i’m in.
