Read this if you are thinking about taking 19 credit hours

Hey there, Falcons!

It’s been QUITE a while since I’ve blogged … sorry about that. Next time I’ll give you a little look into my life this semester (this will be especially helpful to all you Early Childhood Education people), but today I’m going to recap last semester.

I was SO busy last semester. Here’s what I had going on each week: 19 credit hours,  10 hours of work,  four hours of field placement, executive board for my learning community and participation in my learning community. Oh, and sleep. I didn’t get a whole lot of that last semester, so I kind of forget it happened.

To all you Falcons (and future Falcons) out there who are thinking about taking 19 credit hours: Think long and hard about doing it, as it is a TON of hard work. Despite my incredibly busy semester, I managed to get everything done that I needed to do and kept my 4.0 GPA!

I scheduled myself such a busy semester because I knew I could handle it. I do have to say, my planner ran my life. If you are planning on doing a semester like I did, BUY A LARGE PLANNER.  I adore the fact that BGSU gives us free planners at the beginning of the year, but it just was too small for everything I needed to write down. Organization is key, it really is. There is no way I could have survived last semester without it.

As a side note: I am an extreme perfectionist. I almost always overcommit myself and almost never admit it. If you value your sleep and would like to sleep more than three-to-four hours a night, then please admit when you have too much going on. I had an awesome semester, but I was definitely busier than comfortable. Look forward to my next post about my preschool experience this semester.
