I have some energy today!

I've been using Habitica to keep track of the things I need to do and habits I want to learn, and so naturally I've decided to also use it to keep track of my academic needs!

My way of handling the workload is by assigning it to days of the week. On Sunday I'll do my reading for Eco. On Tuesday I'll do my classwork for Eco. On Wednesday I'll do my classwork for MBA 7200. On Friday I'll do research for my 7200 project... etc.

So I created a daily task for each class that recurs on the appropriate days. This way I'm dividing my attention into manageable bites.

When I have a big deadline coming up, like a project that's due, I'll also create a To-Do for that so I can officially check it off when it's finished, and if you need to study for a big exam, flash cards are the best way to do it -- so make a To-Do for "make flash cards" and then a habit for "reviewed a few flash cards" and squeeze it in in small bites whenever you can.

Ta-da! Those are my tips. Also, if you need medication to function like a human being, put a daily task for that too. It is really, genuinely difficult to do anything without medication, even something as seemingly fun and easy as play video games... on a completely hypothetical note, of course. /cough

You're a wizard of productivity. :D

How is school going, by the way?

I don't even need to try to be productive - I don't think I've had a day to myself since July, and probably won't until December. Somehow, I'm taking a grad level course and it is both exciting and intimidating. Part time job, helping to run a program that allows female students at my school shadow a lady parliamentarian in Ottawa for a day, campaign volunteering up until the election next month... :D

On the plus side, my mom has Last Week Tonight on direct download on her cable so I can basically watch any episode I want, whenever I want. I am desperately excited for the next episode, where John talks about how David Cameron fucked a pig.

*prods it* Hmmmmm

Not the first one of these I've tried but well, I'm meaning to go back to uni next year, might be worth trying another one...

The daily per class thing does seem like a good idea, too! (And yeah uh trying to function without meds is um not so fun. I get withdrawal-dizzy in about eight hours! Yay! Not.)

*nods* Yeah, I am hoping it will work for me because of that too. I'm in a better headspace for social stuff than I used to be, so~ *crosses fingers*

Yeaaaah, it's pretty shitty. It's one of the sorts that flushes out after 24 hours, so yeah. >__< Missing a dose is very not good. Great if I ever need to come off them, of course, but practically speaking not so much. I'm getting very good at dealing with being dizzy, though, so I guess that's something.

Oh geeze. Yeah, that sounds the funnest. :( :( :( :( :(
