    It’s been a BUSY school year so far but I’ve somehow managed to keep it together?!

    My biggest caveat is ADHD procrastination. I learn all of the material but don’t start assignments til shortly before they’re due. Yet somehow I still nearly ace all of them? Magic, I tell ya.
    Wow you are a star!!! Really really well done.

    Thank you, phantasia! Some days it’s a tough balance working and doing school full time. Especially since I am growing within my role at work.

    Well done!!!
    Maybe is a little bit late to comment this, but you should award you every time you finish another semester, or another homework, everytime you score well in a exam.
    This way you'll be motivated to keep rewarding you. Sounds a bit silly, but it definitely works for me!

    I am going to do a post grad and run my photography business next year. I am shit scared lol. But I studied law and and now going to do a post grad in Disaster management. My dream is actualy to win the lotto and run my own "disaster helping" NPO lol... Still trying to win the lotto every week but otherwise I will just have to work for a NPO as well as run my photography business. Will see what the world brings but for now... at least if inspires me that others manage to work and study. Technicvally I also worked and studied white doing my law degree but it was not full time. I was a student assistent and you were capped at working 20 hours a week.

    Looking for your tried and true tips, tricks and suggestions for how to stay on track, disciplined and/or motivated for post secondary classes that are online only!
    I started uni recently, and I am doing my program 100% online as I also work full time. My schooling will compliment my career, but I’m worried I’m going to struggle trying to balance my work and school load.

    I have all of my discussions, assignments due dates and exams marked out in my calendar. But what I am already struggling with is how to make sure I’m able to keep up with my learning and to devote my time between my 4 classes.

    Help ya girl out
    As im going back to college, i keep lofi girl playlist on. it helps sets the chill mood of doing homework. I use lofi for office work as well. definitely very happy with the music choice however i do get bored. then i switch to nostalgic music of anthrax, papa roach etc etc. i wish you well on your journey!

    So fun fact, this type of reward system actually isn’t beneficial in the long run! Who knew, right?

    @(you need an account to see links) I do love some of the Lo-fi/chill study playlists. I’m picky on them though so I skip certain songs. Do you have one recommend?
